A guide to "Capturing Motion" in low light situations

First Shot from the Canon 1D X

Today the Canon 1D X came in the Mail from along with the 70-200 2.8 and 85 1.2. I have been waiting a long time to get my hands on the top of the line Canon gear so I can see what it is like on the Dark Side.

I was invited to shoot at a Skatepark opening tonight in Philly and figured now was as good of a time as any to put the camera through some paces. So far the camera feels great with the 70-200 2.8 IS II on it. If you did not know, this camera shoots a mind blowing 12 Frames Per Second. Yes you read that right, it shoots 12 Frames a second which was perfect for shooting these skateboarders and their tricks.

After a quick look through the images I captured the autofocus seems to be really tight and accurate. The colors seem to pop right off the screen but only time will tell whether or not I like it more than the Nikon D4. I think the grain structure looks slightly different but if the focus is on and constant then I will be a happy shooter.
