The Canon EOS 1Dx Mark II Camera

The 1D X Mark II is Canon’s flagship professional DSLR and upgrade to the original 1D X. Key features include:

Mark II Fever. The 1DX II is more about refinement than knock-your-socks-off features. Seeing as its target market is professional photographers, reliability is given priority over fancy features that may or may not work. With that said, the Mark II improves upon its predecessor in many ways, including higher resolution full-frame sensor with Dual-Pixel AF, improved AF, faster continuous frame rate, built-in GPS, and in-camera 4K capture.

20.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor. The modest increase in MP isn’t going to be noticeable to most, but the increase in performance that comes along with the higher resolution sensor will. Dual DIGIC 6+ processors help the new sensor to offer improved high ISO performance throughout its normal ISO 100-51200 range (expandable to 50-409600), 14 fps (continuous focus) / 16 fps (locked focus/exposure, live view), and generous unlimited JPG / 70 RAW buffer.

Improved AF. It’s not an entirely new autofocus system, but rather an overhauled version of its predecessors. What you get is a 61-point system (all user-selectable, no trickery) with 41 cross-type points. Difference arises from all 61 points supporting f/8 autofocus, a 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor for better exposure and tracking performance, and wider spaced points for slightly larger frame coverage.

Dual Pixel AF. The 1DX II is the first full-frame sensor with Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system. Limited to video shooting, this system utilizes phase-detection for continuous autofocus and tracking with user-adjustable sensitivity and speed adjustment. Also notable but limited to video shooting is rack focusing using the touchscreen rear LCD.

4K Video. While it’s not quite as feature-rich as the 1DC, the 1DX II captures DCI 4K up to 60p (4:2:2/8-bit) and Full HD up to 120p (4:2:0/8-bit). 4K capture is limited to a central 1.3x crop of the sensor, while Full HD utilizes the full sensor frame. Clean HDMI output tops out at 1080p for external recording. Audio is handled by your choice of in-camera stereo mic or external devices using the 3.5mm input, with real-time monitoring possible thanks to the 3.5mm headphone jack. However, do make note there’s no focus peaking or zebra warnings, so an external electronic viewfinder/monitor with those features would be recommended.

Professional Build. Just as you’d expect from a 1D-series camera, the 1DX II is built like a tank. The magnesium-alloy body features built-in vertical grip, dust- and weather-sealing, multiple customizable buttons, bright 0.76x optical pentaprism with 100% viewfinder coverage, and 3.2" 1.62m-dot rear LCD with limited touch-sensitivity (video AF point selection only). The new higher capacity LP-E19 battery offers up to 1210 shots per charge, yet offers backwards-compatibility with the previous LP-E4N battery with a reduced top continuous shooting rate of 14 fps.

Dual CFast 2.0 / CF Memory. To keep up with the increase in data flow, the 1DX II takes advantage of the CFast 2.0 format. While Canon made the second slot CompactFlash, if you’re looking to get the most out of the Mk II you’ll need to use CFast cards. 4K video recording for up to 30 minutes and 170 shot RAW buffer are based on using CFast. Try to use even the fastest of CF cards and that drops to a couple minutes of 4K video and a 73 shot RAW buffer. Long story short, use CFast as your primary card and CF as backup.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends.
