Canon has announced its new flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark II.
The EOS-1D X Mark II features a new 20.2-megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor and new AI Servo AF III+, as well as 4K video capture up to 60p. For the first time in the 1D range, GPS is built in, allowing shooting locations to be recorded in EXIF data.
Boasting a wide and versatile ISO range – 100 to 51200, the new camera also features an improved 61-point autofocus (AF) system with 41 cross-type AF points, which covers an expanded area and focuses under low light up to -3EV. For the first time, when shooting with selected extenders and telephoto lenses, the new AF system also offers f/8 AF support with all 61 points.
The 1D X Mark II is able to shoot 14 frames per second with full AF/AE tracking and in RAW. For those needing even more, up to 16fps can be shot in Live View mode without AF. With the new CFast 2.0 card capability, the camera can deliver a burst of unlimited JPEGs or 170 RAW images in continuous high-speed shooting.
The EOS-1D X Mark II will be available in Australia from April 2016.
