The resolution

The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II delivers under normal settings ISO 51.200. Of course, you can extend it up to 409,600 ISO, but then you have to expect a reduced image quality.


Fast speeds

Hard to believe is the speed of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II during continuous shooting, a whopping 14 frames per second can be measured. There are only 16 pictures per second in Live View. The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is not only fast, but also powerful. Because users will be able to shoot in JPEG format without hesitation 700 pictures in one piece. This performance is possible even under the circumstances of a simple CF card.

The Canon EOS-1D X II is a peculiarity among similar cameras. With continuous shooting you can work with Canon EOS-1D X II 60 frames per second in 8 megapixels. Apart from that, 120 frames per second have been made possible for slow motion.

The autofocus of the Canon EOS-1D X II
