DigitalRev Pits the Canon 1D X Against the Nikon D4s in Paparazzi Style Shootout

The Canon 1D X is a couple of years old by now, but that doesn’t mean it can’t hold its own with the big boys of today. And so DigitalRev decided to put the camera up against Nikon’s new D4s in a paparazzi-style shootout that you’ll 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 “package” and what the “x” stands for in 1D X aside, there are some useful comparisons made in between Kai making up interesting backstories for the fake celebrity he’s 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 won’t give the results away, but it’s safe to say each camera has its own forte. The results might not surprise you, and people deciding between these two cameras probably don’t rely on DigitalRev to help them make a decision anyway, but if you’d like to see how Canon and Nikon’s top dogs stack up side-by-side, check out the video for yourself at the top.
