EOS-1D X Mark II, the new flagship DSLR engineered to put the ultimate combination of image quality, resolution and speed in the palm of your hand.
Featuring a new 20.2 MP full frame CMOS sensor and new Al Servo AF III+, as well as 4K video capture up to 60p.This blend of power and performance makes the camera an essential companion for virtually all professional specialisms.
Breaking the boundaries of high speed shooting, the EOS-1D X Mark II is able to shoot 14 frames per second with full AF/AE tracking and in RAW, equipping you to capture the exact moment of a sporting event, or burst of emotion.
The EOS-1D X Mark II can also shoot up to 16fps in Live View mode without AF. With the new CFast 2.0™ card capability, the camera can deliver a burst of unlimited JPEGs or 170 RAW images in continuous high speed shooting.
Dual DiG!C 6+ Processors
The EOS-1D X Mark II is the most responsive EOS DSLR to date, thanks in part to the new Dual DiG!C 6+ processors providing high-speed processing of the vast image data captured by the sensor.
4K Video capture
Canon’s heritage in 4K movies culminates in the EOS-1D X Mark II, giving film-makers the option of shooting 4K (4096x2160) in a variety of frame rates up to 60fps to the CFast 2.0™ card. Decisive moments from a 60fps 4K scene can be extracted as a high resolution 8.8MP still, giving you even more control over the exact moment of capture.
New AE metering sensor and AF algorithm
In addition to Canon’s popular pro AF technologies – EOS iTR and AF Case settings – the EOS-1D X Mark II also includes new AI Servo AF III+ that improves the tracking sensitivity in scenes where subject movements may occur suddenly, such as animals moving quickly through the wild. Working in partnership with the AF system is a new 360k RGB+IR metering sensor, providing accurate exposure and improved subject detection. Flicker Detection guarantees consistent results under artificial lights – perfect for indoor sporting events.
AF system with expanded area + 61-point f/8 compatible
An improved 61-Point High Density Reticular AF II system with 41 cross-type AF points, which covers an expanded area and focuses under low light up to -3EV. For the first time, when shooting with selected extenders and telephoto lenses, the new 61-Point High Density Reticular AF II system also offers f/8 AF support with all 61 points, giving you the freedom to choose the focus point.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Film-makers can enjoy fast and smooth AF in 4K and Full HD shooting thanks to Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology and Movie Servo AF, while the touch panel LCD enables you to quickly select AF points when shooting movies.

Only the highest ranking Meister workers are involved in the EOS-1DX Mark II production. A “Meister” is a recognition of the top tier workers, who are carefully selected to work on flagship products. There are different grades of Meister with only the highest ranking in charge of assembling the 1D series.
Top-rank Meister workers autonomously carry out production work from start to finish. The Meister’s memorize how to assemble products with over 1,000 individual parts, assembling the product on their own, then inspecting the finished product. Hand assembled to perfection.
The EOS-1DX Mark II is assembled in strictly controlled cleanrooms that keep out even the smallest specks of dust and dirt. In these cleanrooms, airborne dust is limited, and temperature and humidity are controlled.
