Product features in detail

Sensor

The Canon EOS-1DX MK2 has a 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which raises the bar for professional digital SLR cameras. It captures incredibly sharp and detailed high resolution images with high dynamic range and low noise, even in low-light conditions.

image processors, mirror drive, and continuous shooting

The EOS-1D X MKII features Canon's latest generation dual DIGIC 6+ processors which deliver natural, vivid colours, smooth tonal gradations, and improved noise reduction at high ISO. Together with the new half mirror quick-return mirror drive system, they produce the most advanced image processing ever, and enable high-speed continuous shooting at up to 14fps and 16fps in Live View mode with a generous 170 images capable of being stored in the buffer, so you'll never miss that decisive moment.

4K video

One of the most exciting aspects of the EOS-1D X Mark 2 is the addition of 4K video capability at 30p or 60p, which is recorded internally onto the new generation CFast 2.0 storage media (the camera has 1 CFast slot as well as 1 Compact Flash slot). The Dual Pixel CMOS AF allows for smooth focusing transitions when shooting video. Additionally, slow motion recording is now available. 

Perhaps even more impressive is its ability to take 4K frame grab 8.8 megapixel stills from a 4K video, which will surely be a revelation to long-term Canon fans.

Tracking and focusing on the EOS-1D X MK2 is lightning fast and super accurate with AI Servo AF III+ and 61 AF points. Even at f/8, all 61 AF points with 21 cross-type points are selectable (61 autofocus and cross-type autofocus points are available with select lenses only), which is not only invaluable but is also a first for Canon cameras

The expanded 61-point autofocus has 41 individually selectable cross-type points, including 5 dual cross type points at f/2.8. Cross-type points are illuminated in red in the viewfinder, and the autofocus reacts to both subject and camera movement for unrivalled levels of precision. 

LCD monitor

It has a viewing angle of approximately 170° horizontally and vertically, and brightness is adjustable manually to one of 7 levels. If necessary, the touchscreen can be disabled.
