The reborn EOS-1D achieves 8.2 effective megapixel resolution even at a continuous shooting speed of 8.5 frames per second. This extraordinary feat is more than evolution, it's a revolution in digital camera performance. Versatility, operational ease & all aspects of camera design have been meticulously refined to give professionals a genuine edge at decisive moments.
Canon's new CMOS sensor with high-speed 8-channel reading technology delivers exceptional image quality with low noise & an extremely high S/N ratio. Its large 28.7 x 19.1mm size realizes an effective angle of view that's just 1.3 times the focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses.
Compatible with DDR-SDRAM, Canon's newly developed, state-of-the-art DIGIC II imaging engine achieves continuous shooting of 8.2 megapixel images at 8.5 fps & employs original Canon algorithms to accurately convert signals into crisp, high-resolution images with natural color & rich gradation.
The EOS-1D Mark II is the world's fastest digital AF-SLR camera (as of January, 2004). Its record-breaking speed is achieved even in the Large JPEG setting (approx. 3,504 x 2,336 pixels), & 8.5 fps are maintained during max. bursts of40 shots (20 shots in RAW format) whether recording in the One-Shot AF or AI Servo AF mode.
Canon's advanced Evaluative Through-The-Lens (E-TTL) Autoflash system offers evaluative metering as well as new averaged metering, which emp loys a new recording algorithm to achieve more stable control & help prevent underexposure & overexposure even when the subject changes location.
New WB Compensation allows separate or combined adjustment of blue/amber and magenta/green biases in ±9 steps, providing the same effect as using light-balancing (LB) and color-correction (CC) filters, respectively. In fact, 360 combinations of 36 (4 colors with 9 steps each) built-in digital color filters are possible.
Seven Color Matrix settings are provided for JPEG and RAW images, allowing easy adjustment of color space, color saturation and color tone. The settings includefive convenient factory presets & two customizable settings, with five-level adjustment, that can be saved for future use
ISO speeds are selectable in 1/3 increments and may be set as low as 50 or as high as 3200 through the ISO extension menu. This is the widest ISO speed range of any EOS digital camera.
The highly reliable EOS-1D Mark II features rigid magnesium alloy in the chassisand external covers that also contributes to electromagnetic shielding, a durable finish and extremely low body weight. At 200,000 shutter cycles, shutterdurability is 30% higher than in the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds.
Improved software features, include EOS Viewer Utility for faster image preview, & Digital Photo Pro for high-speed processing, offer easier operability & handling of RAW images. With the inclusion of such accessories & a variety of EF lenses, Canon delivers total digital imaging.
