Canon has launched its newest flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark II, meant for professional photographers.
The camera uses Canon’s newest 20.2 megapixel full frame sensor. Backed by a new dual DIGIC 6+ image processor, the camera is capable of taking shooting in RAW at 14fps up 170 consecutive shots (or as many JPEGs as your memory card can hold). There’s also internal 4K 60fps and 1080p 120fps video recording options built-in. ISO range is now 100 to 51200, expandable to 409600.
The Mark II also boasts of a new 61-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF system with 41 cross type sensors, with an improved AI Servo III+ predictive algorithm for better accuracy. The camera has built-in GPS but for Wi-Fi you will need to get the WFT-E8 optional accessory that supports 802.11ac for file transfers to computers or smartphones. It is compatible with both CF and CFast memory cards. All of this packed in a weather sealed magnesium alloy body.
The EOS-1D X Mark II is priced at $5999 body-only or bundled with a 64GB CFast card and reader for $6299. It will be available in April.
