Canon EOS-1D X Mark II flagship DSLR Launched In India For Rs 4,55,995
The successor to the Canon EOS-1D X has finally arrived in India. The flagship Canon EOS-1D X Mark II at a price of Rs 4,55,995 for the body, brings together Canon’s latest developments in imaging technology in its EOS range.
The EOS-1D X Mark II offers a 61-point all points select AF system with 41-points cross type AF, along with an expanded AF area (approximately 24% vertically) compared to the EOS-1D X.
The low-intensity limit function at the centre AF is also improved to EV-3. The DSLR is equipped with Al servo AF III+, a new AF algorithm with AI servo scenes analysis that improves AF precision in scenarios involving fast and unexpected movements.
Additionally, the mirror on the EOS-1D X Mark II is constructed with a new drive mechanism that quickly suppresses vibration which enables the DSLR to deliver a quick frame rate of 14 fps with AF/AE tracking enabled, and an even more impressive 16 fps when shooting with Live View, with no screen blackout.
With a CFast 2.0 card slot for high-speed writing, the EOS-1D X Mark II can capture up to 170 RAW images and an unlimited number of JPEG images in continuous shooting mode. It also offers 4K motion JPEG at 60/50p.
It features a newly developed 35mm full frame CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, enhanced resolution of 20.2MP images, and expanded ISO speeds of up to 409,600, one full stop higher than its predecessor the EOS1D X.
The new 360,000 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor and EOS iTR AF system on the EOS-1D X Mark II greatly improves tracking precision. A new in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer proc optimizes RAW images in-camera.
The EOS-1D X Mark II is encased in a magnesium alloy body and weighs 1,340 grams. It is backed by a K390 battery and claims to last 10% more compared to the LP-E4N used in the EOS-1D X. For the first time in the EOS-1D series, GPS is built into the body of the camera. It also comes with Wireless File Transmitter K394 along with a USB 3.0 port.
