    It's the best answer I have yet so I'll go with it.
    That said, those responding on other forums cannot replicate the issue.

    Well you were absolutely right about the file sizes getting bigger.
    Still a touch disappointing Canon' flagship camera is crippled by high iso file sizes.

    I guess it's the sensor read off time that is affected.

    As Kipax has written, it's normal.....see pages 148 and 149 of your user guide.

    Help please. I rarely use my 580EXII flashgun and have never used it on the 1DX2 as I use this mainly for birds and sport. My new 5D4 doesn't arrive before the event so..... I will be using the 1DX2 to take some photos at an informal wedding reception. Could you advise please on the best settings - I will have a diffuser on the flash head - for fill in before night falls and after dark, indoors in a small village hall.

    Thanks.

    The battery in my mkii was showing that it needs to be calibrated, so as per instructions, run it down, pop it in the charger, press the button, 18 hours later jods a good un me thinks, place back in the camera and it's still showing I need to calibrate... Any ideas.?

    I don't bother running it down, as soon as it shows "calibrate" I shove it in the charger and let it go through the discharge/charge cycle, usually works fine but sometimes it needs to be done twice, I just use my spare battery until it's sorted.

    A little technical info so that you know what's happening and what's supposed to happen.

    The battery has a status bit which is set by the camera if it detects a performance issue. The charger calibrates the battery and clears the status bit.

    Possible causes in your case.....
    1,,,The camera erroneously sets the status bit upon installation of the battery.....this would be obvious if the bit is set before you've taken a shot (after installing the calibrated battery...unless cause #3 below).
    2...The charger perfoms the calibration but doesn't reset the status bit......removing the calibrated battery and reinserting into the charger to see if the charger shows the need to calibrate.
    3...The status bit is stuck on the battery.

    so....I got mine today :) what an incredible machine! Testing today with CF cards and getting about 12FPS, does it require CFast to get 14FPS or are there other factors at play?

    There are other factors.....iso, shutter speed, aperture, lens......see page 149 for the full list.
