X1D has Arrived

I was thrilled that it came – a day early. I rented it from LenRentals.com and to maximize I requested the equipment to arrive Friday. But LensRentals had actually shipped it a day early just so that it would definitely make it to me on time.

Thank you LensRentals.

The equipment was shipped via FedEx and since I was not sure I was going to be home to receive it, I requested it to be held at a local Kinkos / FedEx office and was able to pick it up within minutes of it arriving.

Unfortunately for me, I had not realized that I would be needing a much, much faster storage media. Right off the bat the two 16Gb card I had planned on using did not work. I rushed and got what I considered a very fast card (SONY 64Gb UHS-1 SDXC) but that too was not fast enough. Even though I was able to shoot with it, it was taking too long to be useful. I went out a second time to find something faster and finally after 5 whole hours of having gotten the equipment in my hand I was able to shoot. Then came the challenge of being able to “manually set” and view that my settings stuck.

Next I had the challenge of copying the few images I had taken to my computer and then have them uploaded.

I am happy that I feel I have got the whole workflow, for the most part, down and am now ready to shoot.
