Canon EOS-1D Mark II N review

 

Review summary Canon maintains its pro leadership with its 8-megapixel EOS-1D Mark II N, the fastest-shooting digital SLR on the market. Made for magazine photographers covering news and sports, the Mark II N also works well for portrait shooters who...

Combination of fast drive mode and high resolution; large buffer; highly customizable; saves custom camera setups to media, supports cards greater than 2GB.

Noise in underexposed image areas; imperfections appear when paired with lower-quality lenses.

In a league by itself, the Mark II offers professional photographers extensive customization, excellent photo quality, and market-leading speed.

Canon EOS 1D review: Canon EOS 1D

 

Review summary Canon ups the ante with its 8-megapixel EOS-1D Mark II, the fastest-shooting digital SLR on the market. Made for magazine photographers covering news and sports, the Mark II also works well for portrait shooters who want a versatile,...

Combination of fast drive mode and high resolution; large buffer; highly customizable; saves custom camera setups to media; improved E-TTL II flash performance.

Noise in underexposed image areas; LCD lacks sharpness when zooming in review mode; slow image review; imperfections appear when paired with lower-quality lenses; requires fast, high-capacity memory cards to store large files.

In a league by itself, the Mark II offers professional photographers extensive customization, excellent photo quality, and market-leading speed.

Canon EOS 1D Mark II N

 

After great debate, I have decided to not write a hands-on Canon EOS 1D Mark II N review. It is just me here and I have to prioritize what I am working on. Apparently some of the other camera review sites have come to the same decision

There is probably no better camera available for this purpose. With an excellent 45-point, high sensitivity autofocus system paired to a rugged, weather-sealed body capable of firing 8.5 very high quality frames per second into a deep buffer, the Canon...
