Compared with its predecessor, the EOS-1D X (released in June 2012), the EOS-1D X Mark II features improved image quality and a faster continuous shooting speed, as well as enhanced movie-shooting and connectivity capabilities.

Its fundamental performance greatly improves on its predecessor through such key device upgrades as a Canon-developed approximately 20.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor, new high-performance Dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, a new AF sensor, and a newly developed approximately 360,000 pixel RGB+IR metering sensor. Thanks to these improvements, the EOS-1D X Mark II can perform high-speed continuous shooting of approximately 14 frames per second (fps) with high-precision AF and AE performance while maintaining high-resolution imaging performance.

With improved minimum-illumination AF performance, the EOS 1D X Mark II raises the bar on what can be achieved when shooting in low-light environments. In addition, the camera’s Anti-Flicker Shooting function is capable of detecting and compensating for flickering light sources, ensuring optimal exposure by only shooting at peak light volume.

Thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, in which all of the CMOS sensor’s pixels include both imaging and the phase-difference detection AF functions, the EOS-1D X Mark II is capable of high-speed AF tracking.

In addition to smooth 4K/60p high definition video shooting capabilities, the EOS-1D X Mark II is capable of shooting high-frame-rate video (in full HD) at 120 fps for slow motion capture. The 4K Frame Capture function* enables users to extract selected frames from recorded 4K video as approximately 8.8-megapixel JPEG still images.

Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark II is equipped with communication features to meet professional needs, such as connectivity with USB 3.0 and Gigabit-Ethernet, enabling the transmission of data across a network at high speeds. In addition, incorporating a built-in GPS unit, it can record location information and time stamp information, making file management more efficient for professionals dealing with large quantities of data.

* Because still frames are extracted from video they do not offer the same image quality as conventional still images.
