Product Description

Record-Breaking SpeedWorld's fastest digital SLR. 8.5 fps for up to 48 full-resolution JPEGs in a burst. Canon's new EOS-1D Mark II N can record 8.5 frames-per-second for up to 48 frames in one burst. It features Canon's proven 8.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with a 1.3x conversion factor, combined with the speed and intelligence of the DIGIC II Image Processor, all in a rock-solid, metal body. Adding the ability to record RAW and JPEG images on different memory cards, a larger 2.5 inch LCD, Canon's "Picture Style" technology and more, the 1D Mark II N's formidable combination of speed and resolution makes it the choice of pros everywhere. World's fastest digital SLR*: 8.5 fps for up to 48 full-resolution JPEGs in a burst. 8.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor with a convenient 1.3x lens conversion factor, combined with DIGIC II Image Processor for outstanding image quality. Superb body design and strength - all-metal body and chassis, weather-resistant construction and shutter durability - tested to 200,000 exposures. New larger 2.5 inch LCD screen can be viewed even at extreme angles up to 170°. Many new user-requested features, including RAW + JPEG recording on separate memory cards, easy switching between memory cards and user-set file prefixes. New "Picture Style" function for greater control of color rendition and in-camera sharpening.

From the Manufacturer

The EOS-1D Mark II N is an upgrade of the award-winning EOS-1D Mark II. Still featuring 8.2-megapixel performance at 8.5 frames per second, the upgraded camera has a higher performance buffer to deliver a 48 frame burst in JPEG and 22 frame burst in RAW. LCD monitor size increases from 2.0 inches to 2.5 inches, and dual CF and SD memory card slots provide for separate RAW and JPEG recording. Color Matrix and parameter settings are replaced with Canon's new Picture Style--6 pre-sets that simplify in-camera control over image optimization and processing.

Exceptional image quality is assured with an APS-H size (28.7 x 19.1 millimeters) CMOS sensor and high performance DIGIC II processor. The EOS-1D Mark II N also features 45-point Auto Focus and a start-up time of 0.2 seconds. Its wide 100-1600 ISO speed range is expandable to L:50 and H:3200.

First choice of professional agencies
Launched in January 2004, the EOS-1D Mark II fast became Europe's best selling professional D-SLR camera. It secured the major share of sports and photojournalism worldwide, with the world's leading wire agencies such as Reuters, Getty Images, and AFP choosing Canon professional products for their photographers.

New screen
For improved image review and menu readability, the EOS-1D Mark II N is fitted with a larger, brighter 2.5-inch 230K pixel poly-silicon TFT LCD monitor, giving photographers a significantly larger viewing area. The improved screen has twice the number of backlighting LEDs so that it retains brightness and visibility throughout a wide 170-degree angle of view, both vertically and horizontally. This makes it easy to view images when camera is mounted in a fixed position. With image playback, the magnified view can now be viewed straightaway on any selected AF point, and magnification is possible during the quick review immediately after image capture.

Meeting photographers' needs, listening to the market
The EOS-1D Mark II N incorporates a host of improvements to enhance performance, operation and speed. To prevent shooting disruption, new folders are now automatically created when image number 9999 is reached in the current folder. A new memory card selection short cut makes it fast and easy to switch between card slots when choosing recording location. A Low Level Format option executes secure and permanent deletion of SD card data and increases SD card write speeds.

When shooting RAW and JPEG simultaneously, images can now be recorded separately onto a different memory card (CF or SD). In-camera file names are now customizable: Users can decide the first four characters of the filename and the camera will append the 4 digit image number--a feature particularly useful for agencies and photo libraries dealing with memory cards from multiple photographers.

Ready-to-use images as standard
New Picture Style pre-sets simplify in-camera control over image quality. The camera's factory default configuration delivers more immediately usable JPEG images without need for additional menu settings. Picture Style pre-sets can be likened to different film types--each one offering a different color response. Within each easily selectable pre-set, photographers have control over sharpness, contrast, color tone, and saturation.

The pre-sets include:

  • Standard--for crisp, vivid images that don't require post-processing;
  • Portrait--optimizes color tone and saturation and weakens sharpening to achieve attractive skin tones;
  • Landscape--for punchier greens and blues with stronger sharpening to give a crisp edge to mountain, tree, and building outlines;
  • Neutral--ideal for post-processing;
  • Faithful--adjusts color to match the subject color when shot under a color temperature of 5200K;
  • Monochrome--for black and white shooting with a range of filter effects (yellow, orange, red, and green) and toning effects (sepia, blue, purple, and green).
Additionally, 3 user defined entries allows the possibility to create additional variations on the in-camera styles or install additional custom Picture Style files. Additional custom Picture Style files may be downloaded from Canon's web site.

Picture Style replaces internal image processing previously controlled by setting processing parameters and color matrix. Picture Style is also supported by the supplied Digital Photo Professional and RAW Image Task software.

Exceptional image quality, total reliability
Exceptionally high quality images are assured due to the combination of Canon's DIGIC II processor and 2nd generation CMOS sensor, which features an on-chip noise elimination circuit to reduce the creation of fixed pattern and random noise. A low-pass filter placed in front of the sensor reduces false color and moire effects, while the infrared filter suppresses red fringing caused by sensor reflections and fog.

The EOS-1D Mark II N has a shutter durability of 200,000 cycles, and a weather resistant magnesium-alloy casing with over 70 dust- and moisture-resistant seals protects the camera.

A new Auto option is available on the Noise reduction menu screen, which offers automatic detection and correction when necessary of noise levels in images with exposures of 1 second or longer.

Compatibility and accessories
The EOS-1D Mark II N is compatible with all Canon EF lenses and the entire EX series Speedlite flash range. Canon's E-TTL II flash system optimizes flash exposures by linking distance information from the camera/lens system to the 21-zone evaluative or averaged metering readings from the pre-flash.

The camera's focusing screens are interchangeable; an optional new "Super Precision Matte" Ec-S focusing screen enables easier manual focusing with fast lenses.

With the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1 (not included--must be purchased separately), photographers can work cable-free as images transfer automatically through a wireless LAN to a computer in seconds . Interfaces include video out (for display in both NTSC and PAL formats), IEEE1394 (Firewire), and USB. The camera is PictBridge compliant for PC-less direct printing to any brand of compatible photo printer.

The EOS-1D Mark II N supports the optional Data Verification Kit DVK-E2 v2.2 (not included--must be purchased separately), which verifies the originality of images taken with the camera.

New software
The EOS-1D Mark II N is bundled with the EOS Digital Solutions Disk v11, which includes an upgraded version of Canon's RAW image processing software Digital Photo Professional (DPP). DPP v2.0 now supports RAW images shot on all EOS digital cameras from the EOS D30 forwards, and includes support for Picture Styles. Improvements and additions are aimed at improving functionality and workflow efficiency for professionals, and include: easy image selection with three levels of check marks; real-time adjustment of sharpness; improved image correction (Copy Stamp); enhanced image transfer function--single image transfer to PhotoShop is possible; extended color space support, now including Apple RGB and ColorMatch RGB; and an enhanced CMYK simulation function.

Also provided is on the solution disk is ZoomBrowser EX (PC) and ImageBrowser (MAC) v5.5 for managing images, EOS Capture v1.5 for remote shooting, PhotoStitch v3.1, PhotoRecord v2.2 (PC), RAW ImageTask v2.2 and CameraWindow v 5.3. EOS-1D Mark II N is compatible with Canon iMAGE Gateway providing a 100 MB online photo album.

Canon has three digital cameras for $2,500+. The 1DS Mark II, the 1D Mark IIN and the relatively new 5D. I chose Canon over Nikon (which I've shot most of my photographic life) because of Canon's more impressive suite of lenses. Here's the decision process I went through. As with most products, it comes down to how you'll use it. All of them have tradeoffs.

1. Megapixels. More pixels - with a few caveats - translates into an image that can be enlarged (and cropped more tightly)with less deterioration. The 1DS is the market leader at 16.7MP, the 5D comes in at 12.7MP and the 1D at 8.2MP. If you're a commercial art or magazine photographer the 1DS probably makes sense. If you're a wedding photographer, the 5D is probably the sweet spot. In practice, however, the difference in pixels between these cameras will not make an appreciable difference for most people. At 8.2MP, you can make an 11x17 print at 200 pixels/inch without any enlargement beyond the camera's native resolution. Up to that size, you certainly won't see much difference in prints from the three cameras. That said, the higher megapixels of the other cameras gives you more extreme cropping lattitude.

2. Full frame. The 1DS and 5D are full frame - that means the sensor in the camera will capture the view of the scene that you're accustomed to seeing with your 35 mm film camera. The 1D and most digital cameras have what is called a field of view crop factor (FOVCF). For the 1D, it's 1.3X. What that means is that both the viewfinder and the image sensor don't capture everying the lens is "seeing" - it crops the view in a little tighter. The result: your lenses are effectively 1.3X longer. A 70 mm lens becomes a 91 mm lens and so on.

Verified Purchase
This is an excellent camera! I purchased mine in Feb. '06 and have used it continually for 2+ months before I decided to write this review. First, I am an avid amateur photographer, and I wondered if this camera would be worth the expense, for a non-pro. I've found that I do not regret this purchase in any way. I researched it for several months and even bought the Digital Rebel XT first, thinking I'd rather not spend so much for a camera (I like the Rebel XT and it is a fun back up camera)....and I was confused as to which camera to choose. Most official reviewers either did not review it, because there was not "much" difference btw. it and the ID Mark II or simply said that if you wanted to shoot sports or fast action, then the 1D Mark II N was the way to go. I don't shoot those...I'm a wedding/portrait person. However, I do also shoot landscapes and fast moving animals as well and wanted the weather proofing and speed that comes with the Mark II N. So choosing between the 5 D, the (at the time) upcoming 30D and the 1D Mark II N was very difficult.

One pro review site said that the Mark II N was a needless upgrade to the Mark II. I found that an odd remark because Canon changed almost everything that they didn't like in the Mark II. You can record both in RAW and JPEG at the same time, on different cards. A 2.5" LCD that can be magnified from any point, to check the sharpness, there is a definite absence of noise in shadowed areas and you do not have to pair this with an L lense to get excellent photos. Aside from my L lenses, I use the 50mm 1.4, the 70-300 DO and the 85mm 1.8 with excellent image quality across the board.

I am a small woman and found that the camera's weight takes some time to get used to.

It's taken a long time to discover this, but if you have kids, you really need a sports camera. Like most first time parents, I started getting serious about digital slr's when we had our baby. My first dslr camera was a rebel xt, then I upgraded to the 30D. They're both fantastic cameras, but something was not quite right. On a hunch, I recently bought the Mark IIn. I finally have the right camera for the job.

Children do not stay still. The instant you point a camera at them, they will move (typically towards you), there are no exceptions. So with that in mind, why are you snapping pictures of moving children with a camera designed for still studio portraits? Exactly! Wrong gear for the job. You end up with about maybe a 5% keeper rate. How many blurry or non-focused shots do you have? How many shots do you have of moments just passed, and you missed it because you were waiting for your camera to auto focus?

Sports camera such as the eos 1D series are made to shoot fast action... Like children. The unit's auto focus with the ability to track moving subjects quickly means you will have a much higher keeper rate. Keep in mind that nothing replaces basic photography skills.

Shall I go over all the features? No need.

This camera will work anytime anywhere. It amazes me constantly. I'll be blunt. Any other camera (sorry) is garbage compared to the 1D.

From being at the zoo and having to take an unexpected photo which is possibly due to its lighting fast startup and focus, to being on a boat in the harbor of San Francisco in the pouring rain while others run and hide with their cameras, to grabbing a 400mm night shot in Vegas with exceptional clarity thanks to low noise at high ISO and image stabilization - the 1D destroys any other camera.
