Canon just launched the EOS-1D Mark II – the new Canon flagship professional DSLR which is perfect for professional photographers who desire to step up their photography game. Well, here’s five reasons why this particular DSLR will be the ideal choice for you..
For professional photographers, shutter speed is very important and the EOS-1D Mark 11 can give you just that for a precise shot. With its new 61-point selectable AF system with 41-points cross type AF, photographers can benefit from an expanded AF area (approximately 24 percent vertically) compared to the EOS-1D X. Shooting in different light conditions will be easy for them now as the centre AF is now improved to EV-3.Canon
4K Image quality for EOS movie
Users are now able to utilise 4K motion JPEG at 60/50p, resulting in a pixel-free footage. The EOS-1D X Mark II’s Full HD recording feature comes with a new High Frame Rate mode that allows recording at 120/100, enabling slow motion video recording. The inclusion of a CFast slot caters to these high data-rate shooting modes. Also, with the camera’s Frame Grab feature, users can extract footages without connecting to a computer. Its ability to shoot 60p allows users to choose over 60 images in every second of the video.
Top-class image quality
The EOS-1D Mark II breaks into a whole new level from the EOS family with a new 35mm full frame CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, an enhanced resolution of 20.2 megapixels, an expanded ISO speed up to 409,600 and one full stop higher than the EOS-1D X.
Made to last
Every single part of this camera is designed for endurance and durability. It is encased in a robust magnesium alloy body and is designed to be dust and drip-proof for enhanced protection.
Built-in GPS function and optional Wireless File Transmitter
For the first time in EOS-1D history, a GPS system is built into the body of the camera, making it easier to tag your buddies on social media with accurate location tags. File transferring is also made easier with the Wireless File Transmitter, WFT-E8D. It allows seamless wireless connection between your smartphone and the camera, hence, allowing you to remotely control the camera for still image shooting, movie recording and image transferring.
