Canon EOS-1D X Mk II review

 

The 1D X Mk II looks set to wow the pros shooting this year's Olympic games

Excellent control layout and handling ; 4K recording at 60fps ; Brilliant autofocus system

Only a small increase in resolution over the 1D X ; Limited use of the touchscreen technology ; Video mode needs a dedicated Quick menu

Canon has fine-tuned proven handling and controls in response to user feedback, and delivered a big gain in continuous shooting performance. It also pushes the Nikon D5 all the way for image quality within its standard sensitivity setting. We can...

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II review: The fast and the furious, part II

 

The big boss is back for round two: the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is the company's top-end full-frame DSLR, which replaces both the original 1D X and video-focused 1D C models. And it really is one serious bit of kit, as we've been finding out during a...

Super-fast autofocus system is world class in continuous autofocus, great image quality, fastest-on-market 14fps burst with seemingly endless buffer (using CFAST card), decent battery life, solid construction as ever

No vari-angle screen (like Pentax), no clean HDMI output for 4K video, would like broader spread of AF points throughout finder, image quality limitations at super-high ISO

There's probably a thousand things we've not quite touched upon with this Canon EOS 1D X Mark II review - such as the rather capable Wi-Fi and remote control, or the GPS log tracking (both out-the-box in-camera features) - but that's just how detailed...

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

 

Updates to Canon's 1D-series professional DSLRs are rare enough to count as something of an event. The new EOS-1D X Mark II replaces not only the EOS-1D X, launched back in 2011, but also the 4K video-focused EOS-1D C of 2012, improving on both. The...

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is the fastest shooting full-frame Digital SLR available, offering a rapid 14fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking, or an even quicker 16fps when shooting in live view mode with the mirror up and fixed AF. This would...

My expectation that the 1D X II was going to be worth the upgrade from the 1D X was very high.That I sold my 1D X at 1D X II announcement time made clear my confidence that this would the best sports/action camera ever.I have no regrets – the 1D X II...

Canon goes for a personal best with new action-photo flagship

 

There are very few differences between the 1D X and the 1D X M2 bodies. Among them are the upgrade to USB 3.0 and the addition of a headphone jack, as well as a more modern Live View control.
