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.
