Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors

Key to the performance benchmarks achieved by the EOS-1D X Mark II camera, Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors not only convert the light that passes through the camera's sensor into high-quality photos and movies, they also enhance the camera's overall performance. Improvements include high-speed processing, up to 16-fps* operation for stills and 4K/60p movies, lens distortion and diffraction correction during operation with virtually no effect on the camera's speed, plus fast write times and much more.

NOTE: * Continuous shooting speed may vary based on the aperture and lens being used and conditions of the subject. 

Capture Full 1080p HD video up to 120 fps for slow motion with the 1D X Mark II. Thanks to its Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors and its advanced sensor, this camera can capture 4K (Motion JPEG) video at up to 60 fps, recording smoothly to CFast cards. It's the first EOS camera able to record Full HD video at 120 fps, easily displaying minute details imperceptible to the human eye and ideal for slow-motion video capture. Capture 4K Video (4096x2160) up to 60 fps (59.94) with an 8.8 Megapixel still frame grab in camera. Note that the manufacturer states: saving a still image from a single movie frame does not result in the same image quality as a normal still image. Verify your focus with the frame grab feature and the camera's touch panel display. AF points can be easily selected while the camera's rolling.

Low-light performance is improved as well, with video recording at ISOs of up to 12800 in 4K and 25600 in Full HD. The EOS-1D X Mark II also features uncompressed HDMI output for Full HD videos, helping to facilitate video editing with minimal image degradation. Not to mention, it can also save videos as MP4s for easy playback on mobile devices.

20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The EOS-1D X Mark II camera features a Canon-developed 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that not only helps it record more pixels. It includes gapless micro lenses for enhanced, low-light performance. This results in noise reduction in dark portions of the image, even at high ISO speeds, increased sensitivity. This contributes to the 1D X Mark II's high-speed image capture rate. It accelerates frame-to-frame performance as well as enabling 4K movies (60p/30p) and improved playback. This sensor is also Canon's first full-frame sensor to include Dual Pixel CMOS AF for high-speed, precise AF during Live View still and movie recording.

ISO Range of 100-51200; Expansion to ISO 409600

With a standard range of ISO 100-51200, the EOS-1D X Mark II is incredibly sensitive, and thanks to a high signal-to-noise ratio as well as powerful noise reduction, the 1D X Mark II can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 102400 (H1), 204800 (H2), and even 409600 (H3). Beyond the obvious advantages of its wide ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark II has automatic ISO settings found on the dedicated ISO menu. Minimum and maximum ISO settings can be specified, as can a user-defined range, plus full auto and manual.


This camera incorporates a number of significant improvements to help deliver precise, reliable AF and AF tracking. The 1D X Mark II features a 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system with 41 cross-type points which expands the AF area approximately 8.6% in the top and bottom of the central AF area and approximately 24% at the top and bottom of the peripheral frame.

A wider subject tracking area improves the high-precision AF system so that challenging focus tracking in scenes with sudden changes of speed and subject position is easier than ever. The AF system's low-intensity limit has been improved to EV -3 and all 61 AF points are compatible down to f/8* for excellent low-light performance. The EOS-1D X Mark II's AF algorithm has also been improved: it's equipped with AI Servo AF III+, which remembers the AF path and helps refine precision. You can choose individual AF points manually, use the Large Zone AF area or any of the camera's automatic AF selection modes. 

NOTE: * Except when using the Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM and EF 28-80mm f/2.8-4L USM lenses.

Viewfinder AF

The camera viewfinder also includes Autofocus functionality. The Intelligent Viewfinder II delivers convenient composition and setting changes. The camera's viewfinder can show significantly more information in the LCD display and presents AF points in red, increasing visibility in dark locations where AF is typically difficult and in situations where the ambient light makes the AF frame difficult to see. Features like the electronic level, a grid, flicker detection, white balance, metering mode, AF information and more can be glanced at easily without drawing attention away from the subject.

Subject Tracking Auto Detection

The 1D X Mark II offers accurate subject tracking for stills and video with EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF with 360,000 pixel metering sensor. The EOS-1D X Mark II camera has an amazingly advanced 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor and processor that greatly contribute to the camera's impressive AF performance for both stills and video. Thanks to a high resolution and infrared sensitivity combined with a refined detection algorithm, this new sensor improves the color and shape recognition of the EOS-1D X Mark II's iSA (Intelligent Subject Analysis) system, increasing the camera's ability to recognize subjects for faster, more precise AF, metering and exposure compensation. This additional exposure and subject information also helps the EOS-1D X Mark II's iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition) AF system maintain focus on a moving subject with a greater level of consistency.

Continuous AF

Continuous AF, even during 4K recording, is made easy thanks to the EOS-1D X Mark II's Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which is compatible with all Canon EF lenses. Focus points can be selected automatically, or specified on the camera's new touch panel LCD screen. Critical focus throughout the frame can be easily confirmed by enlarging stills grabbed from video recordings. The EOS-1D X Mark II's Movie Servo AF is compatible with all frame rates and resolutions, and can be customized to set tracking sensitivity, AF speed and even Face Tracking priority.

Touch Panel LCD Display

The 3.2" touch panel TFT LCD monitor has approximately 1.62 million dots, anti-reflective construction. It features Canon's Clear View LCD II technology for bright, sharp display in any number of shooting situations. A new touchscreen function allows AF point switching and image magnification during Live View shooting and movie shooting for your convenience. The LCD monitor can be ideal for reviewing settings and images, as well as for shooting in Live View mode.

In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections, 9 sections with diagonals, or 24 sections. There is also a dual-axis electronic level, which helps ensure accurate level by displaying both roll and pitch in 1-degree increments.

For image review, the EOS-1D X Mark II features a dedicated Magnify/Reduce button. While pressing the button, zooming in or out (up to 10x) is achieved simply by turning the Main Dial. Images can be protected or erased quickly, individually or in batches, and slideshows can be created with some or all images and can be sequenced by date, folders, movies, stills, protection or rating. A feature guide can be accessed for the selected menu, providing detailed reference information when needed. 

Optical Correction Functions

Canon provided an in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer to produce increased resolution and fine detail, plus help with lens aberration and diffration correction the cummulation of these produces high-quality images. The EOS-1D X Mark II even stores lens aberration data to help eliminate the need to register lens data on previously released lenses and correct images with virtually no delay in-camera.

It corrects peripheral brightness and chromatic aberration and also features distortion correction. Diffraction correction has been included for the first time in an EOS camera. Distortion correction helps resolve barrel and pincushion distortions, while diffraction correction virtually eliminates the blurring effects from diffraction that can be created when capturing an image at a small aperture.

The camera's Dual DIGIC 6+ Image Processors help ensure these corrections can be made with virtually no effect on operational speed. In-camera RAW processing is also made fast and convenient with Canon's Digital Lens Optimizer, helping to improve image quality and giving photographers the ability to work confidently in more complex environments.

Built-in GPS

A built-in GPS provides geotag information and includes auto time syncing with Universal Time Code, which is, of course, achieved via the use of satellites. Providing crucial location and time data, GPS has become an indispensable aspect of the professional workflow, especially for professionals who work on location and capture thousands of images each day. The EOS-1D X Mark II camera's built-in GPS helps photographers and filmmakers tag their images with critical location data and also automatically adjust the time and timestamp. Thanks to built-in GPS and Wi-Fi® connectivity, through the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E8A accessory, the 1D X Mark II can use both GPS and WFT (Wireless File Transfer) together, making it easy to upload a great amount of images both quickly and from increasingly far-flung locales.

The EOS-1D X Mark II's GPS information is reliable virtually anywhere you go due to its compatibility with American GPS satellites, Russian GLONASS satellites, and the Japanese quasi-zenith satellite Michibiki.

NOTE: Canon reminds you that in certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated.

Durable and Rugged Camera Body

Canon's reputation for solid and rugged equipment is incorporated in their production of the EOS-1D X Mark II which was designed for professional use. The camera functions in extreme environments. The body is constructed of rigid, high-strength magnesium alloy and features a grip design for easy finger placement with the added benefit of reduced hand fatigue. Its shutter includes lightweight, carbon-fiber blades, and is rated to maintain up to 16 fps performance without compromise, for up to 400,000 cycles. The EOS-1D X Mark II and accessories like the new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E8A have extensive gasketing for improved dust and water resistance, even at their connection points.
