Canon 1D X Mark II Review

The EOS 1D X Mark II is a worthy successor to Canon’s 1D series of professional cameras. It gains an improved AF system with greater coverage, significantly improved dynamic range, and a virtually limitless Raw buffer when shooting with CFast cards. Additionally, the camera now includes top notch 4K video with beautiful color straight out of the camera. When combined with Canon’s class leading dual-pixel AF system for video, it’s easy to get great video without being an expert. This is a camera that sports, action, and event photographers will love.

Canon 1DX Mark II Review

Sure, it’s big, it’s heavy, and it’s expensive, but the Canon 1DX Mark II is the best Canon DSLR for sports, action, wildlife, or photojournalism. The 20MP resolution is a slight increase from the earlier 1DX, but it might not suit those commercial photographers who need mountains of megapixels. However, for everything else, the Canon 1DX Mark II’s images are right on the money. Images look great, and dynamic range is excellent. High ISO performance is also top-notch, and the versatile autofocus and incredible burst shooting performance will not disappoint or slow you down.

Canon EOS-1D X Mk II review

Canon has fine-tuned proven handling and controls in response to user feedback, and delivered a big gain in continuous shooting performance. It also pushes the Nikon D5 all the way for image quality within its standard sensitivity setting. We can expect to see quite a few 1D X IIs at the Olympic games this summer.

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II Review

Overall, despite the odd complaint here and there, the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is a superb camera which performs extremely well in a variety of different tough conditions that professional photographers will deal with on a daily basis. It’s worthy of an upgrade for many, but others may be able to hold on until the asking price drops a little.

Canon 1DX Mark II review

Thanks to its sensor and processor technology developments, Canon has managed to pull-off a modest increase in pixel count at the same time as a slight improvement in image quality in comparison with the 1DX. Unlike Nikon, the company has also steered clear of largely useless, but headline grabbing sensitivity settings, while delivering a good working range and excellent low-light capability.

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II review

We’re scratching around trying to find fault. When it comes to creative professional tools the 1D X Mark II is not just a worthy successor to the original, it’s an astounding high-speed DSLR in its own right. The original was genre defining and this, the sequel, is one of those rare but lauded better-than-the-original moments.
