At the heart of EOS-1D X Mark II is a Canon developed CMOS sensor that marks the next generation of professional image quality in the EOS line-up. With enhanced light collecting performance and the ability to convert this light into digital signal, this sensor delivers a high-sensitivity performance reducing noise in both high and low ISO speeds, along with high latitude to pull details in dark areas.

Photography so sharp it's dangerous

An expanded focus area with 61 individually selectable AF points, including 41 cross-type and 5 dual cross-type AF points, ensures enhanced flexibility in framing your subjects. Even at f/8, all 61 points are at your disposal including 21 cross type sensors. Combined with the advance AI Servo AF III+ and improved EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system, the EOS-1D X Mark II delivers exceptionally sharp and precise autofocus.

Be an Action Hero with high speed performance.

Breaking the boundaries of high-speed shooting, the EOS-1D X Mark II can shoot up to 14 fps with full AF / AE tracking or up to 16 fps in Live View, thanks to the speed of DIGIC 6+ processors and the new mirror drive system. With the CFast 2.0™ media, the camera can deliver a continuous burst of up to 170 uncompressed 14-bit RAW images.


    Immerse your audience with edge-of-your-seat definition

    The power of 4K resolution brings your stories to life. Shoot internally on CFast 2.0™ (recommended) media in 4K (4096 x 2160) up to 60p or Full HD up to 120p for slow motion creativity. Focus easily and accurately with touch panel LCD and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which provides amazing AF tracking in movies and Live View mode and works with all Canon EF lenses.


    Maximise the shoot time. Minimise everything else.

    SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and Gigabit connectivity via Ethernet or the WFT-E8 WiFi adapter brings superb workflow flexibility to any location while the built-in GPS can auto-update time whenever you change a time-zone by connecting to a global network of GPS satellites. The crop and resize functionality lets you send the frame as you want it to be seen, without the need for a PC.
