20.2MP Full Frame CMOS Sensor and Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors
The EOS-1D X Mk II’s incredible power and speed come from a 20.2MP full frame sensor paired to dual DIGIC 6+ image processors. The CMOS sensor has gapless micro lenses laid over it to capture light for better results in low light situations. These micro lenses contribute to the exceptionally low image noise in dark portions of an image even at high ISO sensitivity. The EOS-1D X Mk II is capable of using an expanded ISO range of 50 to 409600 thanks to the powerful sensor.
Lightning fast shooting is possible due to the sensor and dual processor combination. This camera will take stills at 16 fps with live view and 14 fps while using the optical viewfinder. In burst mode it’s possible to take 170 raw files before filling the buffer (11+ seconds of constant fire!) The camera can also shoot JPG at full speed & resolution constantly until the CFast 2.0 memory card is full.
The EOS-1D X Mk II can correct for lens distortion and diffraction using in-camera optical correction functions. The camera stores lens data and uses it to apply correction factors to your images without slowing the camera’s operational speed.
High Density Reticular AF II and Dual Pixel CMOS AF Systems
The EOS-1D X Mk II has an advanced autofocus system that utilizes a 61 point High Density Reticular AF II system, with 41 cross type points for expanded AF area as well as high precision in difficult lighting. The AF system works in light as low as -3 EV and all 61 points are compatible with lenses as slow as F/8. The EOS-1D X Mk II utilizes a larger AF area so that quick-moving subjects stay in focus more reliably. Precise AF, accurate exposure compensation, and quick subject tracking is provided by the advanced 360,000 pixel RGB+IR metering sensor.
For the videographers, the EOS-1D X Mk II is capable of autofocus while shooting video with remarkably smooth follow focus.
The EOS-1D X Mk II has multiple AF point selection modes that allow you to select single points, a zone of points, manual selection of points and AF point auto selection.
DCI 4K Video Recording
The EOS-1D X Mk II is capable of capturing 4K video at up to 60 fps with smooth AF and fine detail. Full HD video can be recorded at up to 120 fps which is great for slow motion capture. Video can be shot in low light with no problem using ISOs up to 12800 in 4K and 25600 in full HD. The touch screen LCD can be utilized while shooting video to select and change AF points. The EOS-1D X Mk II is compatible with CFast 2.0, providing super-fast write speeds for the large 4K video files. Full HD video can be transferred through the HDMI output to an external recording device for live monitoring, enhanced control, and expanded storage. The camera can also save videos to MP4 format for easy sharing and viewing on mobile devices.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mk II is built for the professional using this camera every day in difficult environments. It’s constructed using rigid, high-strength magnesium alloy with extensive gaskets to ensure water and dust can’t get in. The body features a vertical handgrip for comfortable portrait or landscape camera orientation with redundant controls for the vertical grip. The camera has all the connections necessary for a professional workflow including: Dual CFast/Compact flash memory card slots, HDMI out, headphone jack, USB 3.0 and an Ethernet port. The battery is capable of 1100 shots per charge and older batteries are compatible with the EOS-1D X Mk II for professionals who are upgrading.
The TFT LCD touch screen monitor has a 3.2-inch antireflective display with 1.62m dots. The touch screen allows for convenient operation including, reviewing images, zooming, AF point switching, menu selections and more.
The EOS-1D X MK II offers an Intelligent Viewfinder that displays a wealth of information precisely where you need it. The features displayed include: AF information, white balance, an electronic level, flicker detection, metering mode, a grid, and can be seen without having to look away from the subject. Additionally, The AF points and AF frame are displayed in red for easy visibility even in low light situations.
- The EOS-1D X Mk II has a built in GPS module that allows you to geotag your images while on the camera. The module is compatible with multiple satellites for a large coverage area.
- Full resolution recording is possible along with M-RAW and S-RAW formats to ensure your memory cards don’t fill too quickly.
- The EOS-1D X Mk II utilizes a new highly precise mirror mechanism with extensive internal damping that is less likely to cause vibration when shooting with longer lenses.
- The shutter is made up of lightweight carbon fiber to achieve the 16 fps shooting speed and is rated for 400,000 cycles.
