View Launch Video

Immense power. Phenomenal speed. A remarkable combination of innovation and refinement. The new EOS-1D X Mark II camera is nothing but legendary every step of the way. Building on a heritage of sophisticated innovation, the EOS-1D X Mark II is blazingly fast. Up to 14 fps* (up to 16 fps* in Live View mode) can be captured at a burst rate of up to 170 RAWs with a CFast™ card, and an improved 61-point AF system helps deliver clean, sharp images quickly, even in dim light. This remarkable speed means faster recording too: 4K video can be recorded at up to 60 fps with smooth AF and strikingly clear detail.

The EOS-1D X Mark II camera also 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. Combined with superb low-light performance thanks to its powerful sensor and expandable ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark II performs brilliantly, swiftly and stunningly no matter when or where the photographer is shooting.

With the wireless file transmitter (WFT) accessory, get the fastest and most enhanced wireless support Canon has to offer. Seamlessly transfer your photos wirelessly to your computer or mobile device with the assistance of the Camera Connect application.

From the stadium, safari or studio to virtually everywhere in between, the EOS-1D X Mark II maintains and enhances all the hallmarks of what Canon has to offer, marking a new page in the legacy of the EOS series of cameras.
