Canon EOS-1D X Mark II: A Legendary Update

Canon has unveiled the second generation of its most advanced action photography pro camera, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. With a maximum of 14fps standard/16fps Live View burst rate and up to 170 RAW images per blast when using a Cfast card, as well as improved AF performance and 4K video capture, the full-frame Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is destined to the camera of choice for sports photographers, wildlife photographers, and even for studio photography.

New Sensor

The EOS-1D X Mark II's full-frame 35mm 20MP sensor is bumped up from the original 18MP CMOS, and while its native ISO range of 100-51,200 remains the same, Canon has added one stop of expanded sensitivity, and it now goes all the way to ISO 409,600. Minimum and maximum ISO can be specified for auto ISO. The sensor includes gapless micro lenses for what Canon says is improved low-light performance and improved noise reduction in the shadows. The sensor is also the first Canon full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which they say improves high-speed focusing precision during Live View when shooting either stills or movies.

Built for Speed

The EOS-1D X Mark II's Digic 6+ processor gives it a major performance boost, especially CFast 2.0 cards. Record up to 14fps full-resolution RAW or JPEG images when shooting with the viewfinder and using the mirror mechanism; up to 16fps when shooting in Live View mode. The maximum burst capacity for full-sized RAW images is 170; when shooting JPEGs, the only limit is the capacity of the memory card. The shutter unit is rated for 400,000 frames. Currently, Sandisk's Extreme Pro Cfast 2.0 cards in 128 and 64GB capacities are the only cards for which compatibility has been verified.

Autofocus Improvements

It has same number of autofocus sensors (61, including 41 cross-type), but the AF area has been expanded approximately 8.6% top and bottom of the central area, and 24% of the top and bottom of the peripheral frame. This wider subject tracking area is said to improve the AF system so the camera's AF can keep up with sudden changes in speed and subject position. There are many user-selectable AF sensor point patterns. The system has been improved to EV -3, and all AF points are compatible down to f/8, for better low-light performance. The algorithm has been improved for greater precision. The camera uses an advanced 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor and processor. This helps both the AF and exposure. The high-resolution infrared sensor combines with refined algorithms to recognize subjects and maintain focus on moving objects.

Intelligent Viewfinder, Touchscreen LCD

The viewfinder has been refined, adding several “heads-up” superimposed displays on the optical image and a new touch-capacitor screen. These include active AF point displays, an electronic level, shooting mode and metering mode indicators; Exposure levels and settings are displayed in the black border surrounding the image. With all of this information at eye level, users are less likely to need to take their eyes off the subject or be distracted from the composition to make adjustments.

The camera's 3.2-inch touch-panel TFT LCD monitor has 1.62 million dot resolution, and an anti-reflective surface. The touchscreen lets you change the AF point in live view at the touch of a finger, and image magnification during Live View video and stills is possible.

4K Video

In addition to its talents in the areas of Sports, Wildlife and Studio photography, the EOS-1D X Mark II has impressive movie-making chops. It captures up to 4k video at up to 60fps—up from its predecessor's maximum resolution of 1080p. It is the first EOS to capture full HD video at 120fps, so you can capture high-resolution slow-motion action. The camera's touch screen lets you easily select focus while the camera is rolling. An 8.8MP still image can be grabbed from the 4K video to review and check things like focus and exposure, or simply to get a production still.

ISO range for 4K video, while not as dramatic as for stills, is still an impressive 100-12,800 in 4K and up to 25,600 in full HD. Uncompressed HDMI output promotes video editing with minimal image degradation. Videos can be saved as MP4s as well.

Fine Detail control

Canon has added computational lens aberration and diffraction correction abilities. The camera stores information about previously released lenses and will correct for their faults for the first time in an EOS. Distortion correction helps resolve barrel and pincussion distortion; diffraction correction is said to virtually eliminate blurring effects that can occur when shooting at small apertures. Canon says these corrections can be made so quickly they won't slow down the camera's operations in any way. This is a convenient feature that reduces post-production time and effort.

Built-In GPS

With built-in GPS, images can be geotagged with auto timestamps. An accessory WFT-E8A wireless file transmitter lets you upload images quickly. The optional Wireless File Transmitter lets users quickly transfer images via iOS and Android devices, which can also be used as a remote control for the camera.

Solid build

The camera body is constructed of rigid, high-strength magnesium alloy and features an ergonomically designed grip that they say will reduce hand fatigue. The shutter mechanism is made from lightweight carbon-fiber blades and is rated for up to 400,000 cycles at up to 16fps. It has extensive gasketing for improved dust and water resistance.
