About Canon

The Canon EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR, preserves the speed, responsiveness, image quality & reliability of the popular EOS-1D Mark II model while incorporating refined features that make the camera easier & more precise to use. Firing at 8.5 frames per second for up to 48 full-resolution JPEG images in a burst, the Canon EOS-1D Mark II N camera ups the ante while retaining the superb CMOS Sensor of the 1D Mark II model, with its convenient 1.3x lens conversion factor.

The 1D Mark II N digital SLR adds a 2.5", wide-angle view LCD/TFT monitor with 230,000 pixels of resolution that offers crisp image playback. Start-uptime on the new camera has also dropped to 0.2 seconds with the help of Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor. Its total viewing area is more than 50 percent larger & its backlight is brighter with 6 LED modules. The improved display enables viewing angles up to a remarkable 170 degrees from any direction.

The user can have a magnified view (15 steps) from any selected AF point. Another new feature on the camera is magnified view during Quick Review. When an image is displayed on the LCD monitor immediately after capture, the user can immediately magnify the view to check focus right away. Other improved playback functions include a last displayed image remembered feature & a more complete INFO display that now shows file size & includes notations for monochrome (B/W) & color (R/G/B) when the RGB histogram is enabled.

An improved image processing sequence & better memory management method in the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR has ramped up its burst capability with the camera now able to shoot up to 22 RAW frames & up to 48 full-resolution JPEGs in burst. The camera can also shoot 19 frames of RAW+JPEG (JPEG quality: 8, Picture Style: Standard, ISO 100); & at 59 frames or better at the JPEG Middle setting, 77 frames or better at JPEG Middle 2, & 135 or better at JPEG small, a substantial increase.

The camera now creates new folders automatically when file numbers reach 9999, making it more responsive in fast-moving news & sports photography. You can customize the first 4 characters in file names, enabling superior image organization & camera identification capabilities.

The EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR lets the user save the same image simultaneously in both the CompactFlash (CF) & SD memory card slots, a highly effective backup mechanism, & can also record to slot 1 until it is full & then go to slot 2 reserve. Now, it's also possible to save the RAW & JPEG images separately in each memory card. The RAW images can be saved in slot 1 & the JPEGs, in any of ten quality levels, in slot 2, or vice versa.

A new feature called Picture Styles combines processing parameters & color matrix settings into easy settings designed to obtain the desired effect, almost like choosing a type of film to obtain a specific result. This eliminates confusing the effects settings have on the image in the digital era.

Canon Features

  • Portrait mode, for softer, more natural skin tones; Landscape, for vivid blues and greens and overall sharpness, plus Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome, which can be customized to emulate color filters with black and white film.
  • Moreover, extensive noise reduction ensures an extremely high S/N ratio. Framingis natural because the sensor's 3:2 aspect ratio is the same as in 35mm cameras,and the sensor's large size realizes an effective angle of view that's just 1.3 times the focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses.
  • Record-Breaking Speed.
    World's fastest digital SLR*:
    8.5 fps for up to 48 full-resolution JPEGs in a burst.
  • With its continuous shooting speed of approximately 8.5 frames-per-second, the EOS-1D Mark II N is the world's fastest Digital SLR camera (as of August, 2005).This record-breaking speed is achieved even when recording in the Large JPEG setting (approx. 3,504 x 2,336 pixels) - a major triumph.
  • 8.5 fps are maintained during maximum bursts of 48 shots (22 shots in RAW). Bursts are first recorded to the cameras internal memory to ensure maximum speedand then transferred to memory cards for storage. The number of shots remaining during a burst is displayed on the right side of the viewfinder.
  • Photographers can expect an exceptional degree of performance and reliability onpar with any film camera they've ever used. Speedy shooting is achieved with lightning-fast 45-point AF, sophisticated tracking and predictive AF technology combined with precise, instant metering, no matter the setting.
  • Shutter lag is a paltry 55 milliseconds. Starting up in 0.2 sec., the EOS-1D Mark II N demonstrates its speed immediately.
  • An unprecedented combination of speed and power.
    8.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor with a convenient 1.3x lens conversion factor, combined with DIGIC II Image Processor for outstanding image quality.
  • Canon's in-house designed single-plate CMOS sensor with 8-channel reading technology delivers exceptional image quality & accelerated continuous shooting. Large & extremely sensitive, with approximately 8.2 million effective pixels (8.5 million total pixels) & a generous 28.7 x 19.1mm image size, it faithfully captures every nuance of your scene
  • The revolutionary DIGIC II Image Processor complements the EOS-1D Mark II N 's speed in capturing images by processing and saving them with similar speed and precision. Compatible with DDR SDRAM, the DIGIC II processor achieves super highspeed processing that results not only in fast shooting, but also accurate processing.
  • This single-chip image processor employs original Canon algorithms to accuratelyconvert signals from the CMOS sensor into crisp, high-quality images with natural color and rich gradation.
  • By handling larger volumes of image data, DIGIC II even contributes to lower power consumption: approximately 1,200 shots can be taken on a full battery at 68° F/20° C, or around 800 shots at 32° F/0° C.
  • Rugged, Robust Build Quality.
    Superb body design and strength - all-metal body and chassis, weather-resistant construction and shutter durability - tested to 200,000 exposures.
  • Designed as a serious tool for professionals, the EOS-1D Mark II N performs reliably in the most demanding shooting conditions. Its handsome body offers thesame high durability as the EOS-1Ds Mark II, thanks to rigid magnesium alloy in the chassis and external covers (top, front, rear and memory card slot cover).
  • The magnesium alloy also contributes to effective electromagnetic shielding, a long-lasting luxurious finish, and extremely low body weight that photographers will surely appreciate.
  • Exceptional durability extends to the inner mechanisms as well, which are shielded from dust and water by protective sealing on all exposed moving parts. Shutter durability of up to 200,000 shutter cycles, ensures the 1D Mark II N will survive almost any situation, for years to come.
  • Bigger image for playback and wide viewing.
    New larger 2.5 inch LCD screen can be viewed even at extreme angles up to 170°.
  • The EOS-1D Mark II N features a newly-designed 230,000 pixel, 2.5 inch LCD screen which provides a bigger image for playback and can be viewed 170° from all angles. Advances in playback include zooming from any AF point, an improved magnified view, and more shot information in the display.
  • New features addressing user requests.
    Many new user-requested features, including RAW + JPEG recording on separate memory cards, easy switching between memory cards and user-set file prefixes.
  • The EOS-1D Mark II N incorporates a number of user-requested improvements such as an interchangeable matte focusing screen for critical focus in low light. ISOvalues can now be changed in the viewfinder, allowing the photographer to changesettings without taking the camera from their eye.
  • The1D Mark II N has two memory card slots, one for CompactFlash (CF) and one forSecure Digital (SD) memory, and has the ability to record JPEG and RAW images ondifferent memory cards, simultaneously.
  • These improvements, plus all the shooting modes of the EOS 1 line and shutter speeds from 1/8000 to 30 sec. and bulb make it clear that the1D Mark II N is an incredibly adaptable photographic tool.
  • New feature to make your photos more creative.
    New "Picture Style" function for greater control of color rendition and in-camera sharpening.
  • The EOS-1D Mark II N is one of the easiest cameras to customize to a photographer's personal style of shooting. Six new "Picture Style" settings simulate the characteristics of different film styles, including Snapshot mode, for punchy, print-from-the-camera color,
  • By selecting different sharpening parameters, photographers can further ensure that their images will look exactly as they like, right out of the camera, expediting time-sensitive projects where post-processing is unnecessary or inconvenient.

This camera is the pinnacle of multiple purpose DSLR perfection. The only thing that is better is the new Mark III. That being said, this camera has raw power in its processor, shutter durability, and burst speed. This makes it the perfect sports photography lens. However, it is also built like a tank and extremely weather resistant. That is why I definitely consider it the best nature DSLR on the market right now. Personally, after testing this camera over several months, I believe it is more than I could have asked for when I bought it. It is amazingly clear and precise, and I would use it for every photographic task that I have. Only 1 complaint: very little change over the Mark II. Overall, the best DSLR buyable today for all-purpose use.

Just what the Doctor ordered...!!!!

By

from Kansas City, Mo.  -  Professional

Man, this camera is the BOMB diggity. It's better than expected. After coming from a F828, 20D, then 30D this is the best camera I've ever had. I Love the feel of it, one solid piece means no flexing of the grip. It responds like an extenion of your hand and mind. After a couple of days I'm already thinking of buying another and going only 1 Series, It's just that good. I tried a 1D then 1DMkII but bought this one, glad I did. I shot a Softball game yesterday and my keeper rate was 99% my 30D never got above about 75%.[...]. It just doesn't get any better than when you open a new Black box.

I plan to keep this camera for years

By

from First Coast North East Florida  -  Professional

I've owned a D30, 10D, 20D, 5D, 1D MKII and now the 1D MKIIn, and I can honestly say this is the best camera I have ever owned. I love the big 2.5 inch monitor. The 8.5 fps when ever I need to shoot sports and most of the entire dual slot CF/SD card. I feel very confident having that feature when ever I photograph weddings...knowing if one of my cards decides to die on me I have it backed up on the other card. The camera feels great in my hands but becomes heavy after a while when carrying it for an extended period of time. Owning the previous 1D's made it easy transitioning to this version. I thought about waiting a few months for the MKIII but for the price and small upgrades they did on the MKIII it was a simple choice. The 8MP is plenty and great for workflow. I'll wait for the MKIV before I think about upgrading again. The backup system where you can store the raw and jpeg in different cards gets confusing at first but I’m learning fast. I recommend this camera to anyone who is thinking about getting a professional DSLR. Its fast, responsive, built-in vertical grip. I plan to keep this camera for years to come.

The ultimate camera body

By

from Nassau, Bahamas  -  Professional

Having had every Canon prosumer digital from the d30 in 2000, I am so glad to have made the jump to the series-1. You will finally start to enjoy taking pictures again. The viewfinder is bright and the eyecup protrudes out a lot, so you don't have to squash your face up against the camera to see the frame. The whole feel of the camera is amazing. It literally becomes and extension of you and responds every time to your requests. I was forever fed up with the error 99 messages of the other bodies. Battery life is incredible. AF outstanding. Do not hesitate - make the jump, invest in a camera that is going to last at least five years! Why on earth I went through five bodies in six years I will never know. (well, one reason is the Mark II hasn't been out that long, but you get my point.) Second backup body will be another one of these in a few months (and after a few weddings). Performance-wise, the images look so much better than the 30D in my opinion.

Great bird Camera!

By

from Phoenix, Arizona  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use it in combination with a Canon 400mm 5.6 lens for aerial bird photography. It grabs the birds in flight much faster than my 20D. I makes a wonderful combination.

A True Photographic Work Horse

By

from Hanover Pennsylvania  -  Professional

This model excels in Outdoor Action Photography. It's rugged design and size make it a little heavy but it's great in my large hands. As an "Old Film Salt switching to digital and needing a weatherable rugged tool for ultra high speed shooting in the great outdoors, the EOS-1 Mark IIN has made this transition a breeze. I primarily use this camera for Sports, Equestrian Events and Nature Photography.

Technological Masterpiece!

By

from Mobile, AL  -  Professional

I love this camera. I have shot with many different manual focus SLR's through the years but I knew I had a winner when I started shooting with EOS AF cameras. Years ago I shot a lot of weddings photojournalistically with a 10D. Now, I'm not sure if photojournalist and 10D should ever be in the same sentence. I hated the slowness of the 10D for all kinds of reasons and found myself always craving my 1n film camera. I can confidently say that the Mark IIn has far exceeded my expectations of any SLR for speed and accuracy, both in fps and af speed. Yes, it's heavy and its more than worth it's weight in gold for an action shooter! It's large too, but I wouldn't trade it for any smaller slower camera. Paired with L series lenses this thing is unstopable!
