Canon 1DX Mark II Review


Sure, it's big, it's heavy, and it's expensive, but the Canon 1DX Mark II is the best Canon DSLR for sports, action, wildlife, or photojournalism. The 20MP resolution is a slight increase from the earlier 1DX, but it might not suit those commercial...

Excellent image quality, especially from RAWs; Fantastic high ISO performance; Fast autofocus with great tracking performance; 14fps burst rate; Amazing buffer capacity; 4K 60p video; Robust build quality

Very heavy, bulky and expensive; Dual memory card slots use different formats; 29:59 continuous video recording limit; Touchscreen feels underutilized

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...
