Product Description

From the Manufacturer

An update to the tremendously popular EOS-1Ds, the new EOS-1Ds Mark II is a must-have for those seeking to capture huge, beautiful images fast. With an all new, full-frame 16.7 megapixel CMOS image sensor, combined with Canon's blazing DIGIC II Image Processor, the EOS-1Ds Mark II captures up to 32 consecutive shots at speeds up to four frames per second and has dramatically decreased startup and card-writing times in comparison to the EOS-1Ds. These improvements are complemented by Canon's renowned build quality for reliability in even the most rugged conditions. Compatibility with over 50 EF Lenses, in addition to the entire line of EOS accessories, including the new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1 accessory, easily makes the EOS-1Ds Mark II the most remarkable combination of resolution and speed in the history of digital SLRs.

16.7 Megapixel, Full Frame CMOS Sensor
Canon's newly developed 16.7 megapixel CMOS sensor captures more pixels faster, for no-compromise high-resolution photography. With a recorded image size of 4992x3328 pixels and low noise levels comparable to the EOS-1D Mark II, the EOS-1Ds Mark II can create images large enough for almost any purpose, whether on location or in the studio. With ISO ratings of 50-3200, there's almost nowhere this sensor won't perform. As with its predecessor, the EOS-1Ds Mark II's sensor is full frame, meaning no focal-length conversion-factor lenses will have the same angle of view as they would on a 35mm camera.

With RAW plus four JPEG file sizes available, from 16.7 megapixels down to 4.2 megapixels, the EOS-1Ds MARK II can be adjusted to conserve space on memory cards if large images are not the priority of the shoot.

DIGIC II Image Processor
Driven by the revolutionary new DIGIC II Image Processor, the EOS-1Ds Mark II is supercharged for unprecedented performance and image quality, no matter the situation. Thanks to the DIGIC II Image Processor, the EOS-1Ds MARK II is capable of shooting up to four frames per second for up to 32 JPEG or 11 RAW images. The information captured by the sensor is processed and assembled into images of exceptional clarity and resolution. For the first time, photographers can expect precise, natural colors with smooth, lifelike gradations, spot-on white balance, and speed in any number of lighting situations. By handling larger volumes of image data, the DIGIC II Image Processor also contributes to lower power consumption: up to about 1,200 shots can be taken on a full battery at 20 degrees C/68 degrees F, or around 800 shots at 0 degrees C/32 degrees F. With a startup time of 0.3 seconds, the benefits of the DIGIC II Image Processor are immediately evident.

RAW + JPEG
Images can be recorded in the JPEG image format, the RAW image format, or both formats simultaneously, with unprecedented control over image quality. The JPEG format is ideal when reduced file sizes are desired, while Canon's newly developed proprietary CR2 RAW format offers higher image quality with rich 12-bit gradation and lossless image compression. Amazing results can be achieved when processing RAW images on a computer.

Fast and Responsive, EOS-1 Class Performance
As the "1" designation has always been used for the flagship models in the EOS line, Canon has made no compromises with the construction and performance of the EOS-1Ds Mark II. With shutter speeds from 1/8000 to 30 seconds and bulb, a 1/250 second flash synchronization, E-TTL II flash metering, ISO speeds of 100-1600 in 1/3-stop increments (expandable to 50 or 3200 using Custom Functions), as well as 100% viewfinder coverage, the EOS-1Ds Mark II behaves as a professional camera body should. Photographers can expect performance on par with every EOS-1 from the EOS-1V and on. Shutter lag is a paltry 55 milliseconds, focus is achieved with near-instant precision using a 45-point AF system, exposure is measured precisely with a 21-zone metering sensor, and the camera features 20 Custom Functions with 65 settings and 27 personal function settings (with the use of dedicated software) for the ultimate in customization.

Features Shared with the EOS-1D Mark II
Like Canon's other Flagship EOS, the EOS-1D Mark II, the EOS-1Ds Mark II features a number of improvements to enable better digital photography.

Dual Card Slots The EOS-1Ds Mark II comes equipped with two card slots, one for CompactFlash (CF) and one for Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. The camera can be set up to record images on either card for maximum storage capacity, or, for extra security, the same image can be recorded simultaneously on both cards. The card slot cover release knob has been redesigned to enable photographers to open the slot easily, even with their gloves on.

Settings Saved Reflecting the tremendous amount of customization possible with EOS digital SLRs, an entire camera's settings can now be saved to a memory card and shared with multiple cameras. If service is needed, personal settings can be stored and reloaded onto the camera, minimizing redundant settings work.

New Interfaces
Reflecting the wide range of viewing and image transfer possibilities available today, the EOS-1Ds Mark II has a new video OUT terminal, perfect for viewing images on a television screen. And in addition to the standard professional IEEE1394 (Firewire) port, the EOS-1Ds Mark II includes a USB port for connection to older computers or direct connection to PictBridge-compatible printers.

Rugged Build Quality
Like the EOS-1D Mark II, the EOS-1Ds Mark II has a rigid, well-coated magnesium alloy body, as well as improved dust-proofing and waterproofing for shooting in even the most inclement conditions. In addition, the shutter is designed to endure 200,000 cycles. With a newly strengthened accessory shoe, electromagnetic shielding to help reduce noise, and an elegant, comfortable-to-carry body, the EOS-1Ds Mark II is a pleasure to hold and use.

Improved Image Display
New Monitor
The EOS-1Ds Mark II's high-definition, 230,000 pixel, 2.0-inch color TFT LCD offers nearly twice the resolution of monitors on other EOS digital models. It displays nearly 100% of JPEG images, features a new, bolder typeface that simplifies reading of text menus, and five brightness settings. Users can choose to display one to nine images on the screen and can see all their image information when looking at a single image.

Expanded Zoom Displays
Displayed photos can be magnified from 1.5x to 10x in 15 stops, allowing users to check the focus and exposure of images with a new level of precision. Operation is simple: users press the Enlarge/Reduce button in combination with the AF point selector to zoom in, the AE lock button to zoom out, the Main Dial to scroll horizontally, or the Quick Control Dial to scroll vertically.

RGB Histogram
The RGB histogram is a unique feature newly available on only high-end Canon digital SLRs. This professional feature enables separate checking of color information for the red, green, and blue channels, as well as inspection of other color information such as white balance, color balance, saturation, and gradation compression. Available when viewing any recorded image in the Single (Info.) image playback mode, the RGB histogram is displayed as an alternate to the brightness histogram, which draws attention to white portions of the image that lack image information.

Auto Rotation of Vertical Images
To enable easier viewing, images shot vertically are automatically rotated when played back on the LCD monitor. Manual clockwise rotation of the image is also possible by 90, 270, or 0 degrees through the image rotation menu.

Compatible with Canon's Full Line of EOS Lenses and Accessories
EF Lenses
Canon's world-renowned lineup of professional EF Lenses includes over 50 models ranging from 14mm ultra-wide-angle to 1,200mm super-telephoto. All of these extraordinary lenses, except the EF-S series, are compatible with the EOS-1Ds Mark II.

Through Canon's advanced optical know-how and sub-micron precision engineering, EF lenses offer unprecedented capabilities that meet wide-ranging needs. Leading features include a high precision ultrasonic motor that silently drives the autofocus mechanism, an image stabilizer that automatically compensates for camera shake, advanced aspherical optics, fluorite lenses, ultra low dispersion (UD) lenses, and super UD lenses.

Canon's sophisticated electronic lens mount technology communicates with the camera as soon as the lens is mounted, transferring information about the lens type, aperture, and focal length, ensuring fast, precise control from the camera.

Accessories
The EOS-1Ds Mark II is compatible with all accessories available for the EOS-1D, EOS-1D Mark II, and EOS-1Ds (except the DVK-E1, IFC-450D6, IFC-200D6). These accessories include the Ni-MH battery pack NP-E3 and Ni-MH battery charger NC-E2, DC coupler kit DCK-E1, various interface cables, a range of Speedlites, including the all new Speedlite 580EX, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2, and much, much more.

Speedlite 580EX
The new flagship of the Speedlite line, the Speedlite 580EX is optimized for use with digital cameras and is a perfect complement to the EOS-1Ds Mark II. With a higher maximum guide number, shorter recycle times, and compatibility with Canon's E-TTL II flash metering, the Speedlite 580EX is the perfect flash for professionals to advanced amateurs, who want easy, powerful, customizable control.

Data Verification Kit DVK-E2
While ease of manipulation is usually considered a key benefit of digital photography, officials involved in data verification considered it a liability until Canon's release of the DVK-E1, the world's first data verification kit for digital SLRs. This breakthrough was introduced as an option for the EOS-1Ds camera. And now Canon is offering a new improved version--the DVK-E2--as an option for the EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D Mark II, EOS-1Ds, and EOS 20D. Like its predecessor, this kit can verify whether or not a photo is an untouched original. But its use of a Secure Mobile (SM) card reader, instead of an IC card reader, makes it more compact and affordable than the previous version.

Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1
This new accessory allows photographers to transmit images from their cameras directly to a computer over a local area network (LAN). It is compatible with the EOS-1Ds Mark II, and with the EOS-1D MARK II and EOS 20D through firmware upgrades. Includes a mini-antenna and IEEE1394 cable.

Professional-level Image Software
The EOS-1Ds Mark II comes bundled with Canon's EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk (Version 9.0) and Digital Photo Professional (Ver. 1.5), a perfect combination of powerful, easy-to-use tools designed to seamlessly transform data captured by the EOS-1Ds Mark II into a spectacular digital file, perfect for any application the photographer may have in mind.

EOS Solution Disk
The EOS Solution Disk 9.0 includes EOS Viewer Utility 1.2, which provides dedicated support for downloading and simple RAW image adjustment. EOS Capture 1.2 is a remote capture tool for tethered operation, which offers improvements in both speed and usability over previous programs, and PhotoStitch allows for the creation of panoramic images from several different photographs.

Digital Photo Professional (Version 1.5)
Digital Photo Professional is a new RAW image processing application featuring a newly designed, dedicated image processing engine that is optimized to streamline the workflow demands of professional digital photographers. It enables high-speed RAW image processing and preview, support for sRGB, Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB color spaces, and is CMS (Color Management System) compatible. In addition to numerous controls for exposure and color settings, it also includes a new cropping tool, a navigation tool, CMYK printer simulation, batch conversion, multiple image download, and download to applications other than Photoshop.

I bought this camera after using the Canon EOS 10D for commercial photography, and I'm really impressed by its performance. If I were to list the top things I like about it, I would say:

- Resolution. The camera (almost) produces A3 @ 300dpi images. That satisfies most advertising needs.

- Wide Dynamic Range. The color tones and wide color gamut help produce amazing images in all color spaces.

- Speed. (1)Startup speed is wonderful, I set the energy saver to shutdown the camera after 1 min of inactivity and it starts up immediately after a lightly touching the shutter release button. (2)The other thing is the 4 fps; I thought it would be too slow for sports, but it's not. (3)Last but not least, AF speed, it's almost instantaneous.

- Built like a tank. The camera's weather seals are also very important to me. I live in a desert environment, so it gets very dusty especially when doing outdoors photography. Of course changing lenses outdoors for me is risky since it's a chance for dust to get into the chamber and then onto the sensor, So be careful.

- Full Frame. The experience of the lenses brings you back to film cameras. The 10D had a x1.6 crop factor (17mm is actually 27.2mm), but with the 1Ds Mark II 17mm is 17mm and that made me utilize the lenses I had better.

I hope I was able to convey some of the joy I'm having with it.. The only bad thing I find in this camera is its price.. But with all things considered, I think it has the value for it.

It seems unfair to compare this camera to a 10D (or 20D or 30D), either favorably or unfavorably. These instruments are good in their own right, but hardly are in the same league as the 1DS Mark II. I have used all three of the xxD's, and an original 1ds body as well. It occurs to me that the folks who are interested in shelling out over 5 grand for a camera already have an idea about what they want, and that some of them are asking if they should trade in their 1ds body for a mark ii. It is to them that I am adressing this review. The remarks, I think will help those who have less experience with the line. Bear with me for the technical jargon and the emphais on Mark I vs II comparison. I want to help the buyer to decide if there really is a reason to spend this kind of money.

First, regarding resolution: you probably won't be able to tell the difference between Mark I and Mark II unless you are doing studio work. An 8x10 image is virtually indistinguishable. Most of us shoot in .jpg mode, and we don't mess with RAW. If you are doing a 17x20 wedding portrait and are working with uncompressed files, the Mark II is superior. I do outdoor work, so 11.6 megapixels is plenty. Finallyl, the quality of the glass makes a big difference (much more than the sensor resolution), so if you are a little strapped for cash, buy a 5D and spend the difference on "L" series lenses, or a used 1DS (Mark I).

Second: Ergonomics. I like the histogram on the Mark II better than the older camera, and appreciate the improved burst performance, and storage times. Small but significant differences. The battery life is way better, and I like that. I can get 700 frames out of a charge in the Mark II and only 200 from the Mark II. Thank you, Canon.

As a photo gear junkie, I seem to go through cameras quickly. I buy - use - sell - upgrade... over and over and over. I have used the original digital rebel, the 20D, the 1DMarkIIN, and now the 1dsMKII.

I was originally hesitant to drop the significant chunk of change required to own this product. Especially in the middle of a period of rumors circulating that the next evolution of the 1ds was coming soon. However - it was well worth the money.

I shoot model based images primarly... so I need something that is portable, rugged, and wont die on me - on location.

The battery lasts 8+ hours per charge - and charges incredibly quickly. I bought a spare... but I have only used it on travel weekends when I am away from a power supply for 2-3 days.

Its rugged. There is nothing like the pro-series bodied by Canon. I have taken this camera out in the cold and snow - and in pretty heavy rain - and because of its weather sealing - it worked like a charm.

Noise... this camera can shoot at H - which is the equivalent of ISO 3200. If you need to get the shot - and are in almost pitch black conditions - this baby can handle it. It will be grainy - but its a lot better than almost all of the other cameras out there. (I hear rumors that the 5D is better with LESS grain than this camera)... but then again - this is 16.7 megapixels.

The amount of megapixels is phenominal... 16.7 - allows you to shoot a person and see all of their nosehair. While that may not sound flattering (and its not) - it means that with good glass this baby can capture even the subtlest of details.

Last cool point... the dynamic range.

You figure more digital cameras have a dynamic range of 5-7 stops. Film - 7-9 stops...
