Canon EOS-1DX Mark II DSLR Camera

The Flagship of the Canon DSLR lineup, the EOS-1DX Mark II, brings the shooting speed and video capabilities demanded by professional multimedia image-makers, and is identified by its robust processing capabilities and ability to facilitate a high-end multimedia workflow. At the center of the Canon imaging system is a full-frame 20.2MP CMOS image sensor and dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, which share in the fast continuous shooting rates up to 16 frames per second in live view, 14 frames per second with full-time autofocus and AE, and an enhanced sensitivity range from ISO 50 thru 409600. The sensor and processor combined also account for DCI 4K video capture at 60 fps and Full HD 1080p capture at 120 fps, along with the capability to record in-camera to a CFast 2.0 memory card, or non-compressed Full HD movie can be saved using HDMI to an optional external video recorder. Assisting with still shooting is a fitting 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system, which also includes 41 cross-type points for a elevated degree of exactness in varying light situations, and video photography is enhanced by Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, which makes its initial appearance in a full-frame sensor for smooth, fast, and controllable autofocus during live view. With an all-around set of imaging virtues, the EOS-1D X Mark II takes its position as a high-performance tool for both professional photographers and videographers.

Complementing the hardy set of imaging specs is an equally hardy physical lay out based on a magnesium alloy body fabrication that is both dust and weather-sealed for use in severe environments. Integrated within the body is a big 3.2" 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen for brilliant, high-resolution live view monitoring and playback review, and a big 0.76x Intelligent Viewfinder II is provided for clear shooting at eye-level. Providing flexibility in handling files, both CFast and Compact Flash memory card slots are available. The 1D X Mark II also supports sharing images using Wi-Fi, as well as the ability to control camera wirelessly using the available WFT-E8A Wireless File Transmitter. In addition, an on-board GPS module allows in-camera geotagging of images, and also delivers automatic time sync with the Universal Time Code for more decisive file sharing and organization.

In addition to the camera body, the Premium kit also comprises of a SanDisk 64 gigabyte Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 memory card plus an Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 Reader/Writer to let you get started working with the fast transfer speeds supported by the CFast media type. This new CFast 2.0 card lets you fully use the 1D X Mark II's abilities, including 16 fps continuous photography in live view and 14 frames per second with AF/AE, a broad buffer limit of up to 170 raw frames during a single burst, and DCI 4K video capture at 60 fps and 800 Mbps
