The Canon 1D X is a couple of years old by now, but that doesnât mean it canât hold its own with the big boys of today. And so DigitalRev decided to put the camera up against Nikonâs new D4s in a paparazzi-style shootout that youâll either find funny or annoying, depending on how you feel about DigitalRev humor in general. (Note: There are a few curse words and some innuendos in the video. Might be better to save this one for after work.)
All of the jokes about which one is the better âpackageâ and what the âxâ stands for in 1D X aside, there are some useful comparisons made in between Kai making up interesting backstories for the fake celebrity heâs photographing. Both cameras are put through their paces in silent mode, in a low-light situation and while both the photographer and subject are moving.
We wonât give the results away, but itâs safe to say each camera has its own forte. The results might not surprise you, and people deciding between these two cameras probably donât rely on DigitalRev to help them make a decision anyway, but if youâd like to see how Canon and Nikonâs top dogs stack up side-by-side, check out the video for yourself at the top.
