Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

 

If getting the shot is of utmost importance to you, a Canon 1-Series body should be a high-ranking option on your very short shopping list.Canon 1-Series bodies have long represented the pinnacle of camera performance and reliability.Proof of such...

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 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...

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...
