This Sunday I was out with my new Canon 1D-X and photographing an Allsvenskan match. It was the first game I’ve shot with this camera and I was thoroughly satisfied. The AF seemed to generally perform better especially in tracking players running towards me. I was really impressed with the camera’s auto white balance which handled the stadium lighting much more accurately that my Mark IV.
All in all I’m still getting to know this camera but I’m very impressed and certainly a satisfied customer. On Thursday I am shooting a UEFA Europa League qualifier with the Stockholm team AIK, so I’ll have some more pictures to share and some more thoughts on the camera.
