Canon EOS-1D X Mark II field test

Two days before the first round of the 2016 World Endurance Championship, I was asked if I would like to test the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity.

The EOS-1D series has long been Canon’s answer to the ultimate professional camera. This latest version promises to continue the tradition. Like its forerunners, it has been hotly anticipated for almost a year, and true to form, the camera has been announced not long before the Olympic Games.

If you were looking for a significant change in the headline figures over the EOS-1D X – the 1D X Mark II’s predecessor – you’ll be disappointed. The Mark II body has seen a small increase in resolution from 18.1 to 20.2 million pixels, and ISO has been increased from 204,800 to 409,600 at the top end. Frames per second (not in live view) has increased from 12fps to 14fps.
