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.
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).
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.
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.
Top customer reviews
I have shot with Canon equipment since the 1980's and still keep an EOS 1V so this model 1D (speaking in terms of setting the Mode, Speed, Drive, ISO, Bracketing, etc.) is more or less intuitive to the seasoned Canon 1 series user. Having other Canon Digital DSLR's has helped with navigating through the Menus accessed by the back buttons and LCD. Though operationally different - menu and image navigation differences are not insurmountable.
This camera is more capable than my current Canons (30D & 20D) and I am excited to put it through its paces at my next shoot.
Everyone wants the newest-bestest stuff - but in the absence of almost $7,000 for the new Canon Flagship 1D X, this affordable alternative is still enough to get the photography 'juices' going. It's a full blown professional Camera with all the bells and whistles to keep me happy for the foreseeable future.
Other than the 1Ds Mark II and its 16 MP, this camera can to everything a pro or pro-amateur photographer will need.
It's truly a beauty and certainly fast enough to get any shot necessary.
I have coupled it with a 100-400mm 4.5-5.6L and have been blown away by the image quality which, I believe, surpasses that of today's newer cameras outside of the 1D line in terms of color saturation, contrast and image sharpness. The ability to navigate my way through the menus and the need for two hands to change some settings was initially cumbersome, but has become easy to navigate with time and practice.
I shoot predominately outdoors and from sunrise to sunset, so the low light limitations are not something I have noticed. I have shot up to 1600 ISO with great results and even, to some degree, like the interesting graininess to the images at the higher ISOs. I have also found that coupling this body with a 50mm 2.8 yields nice results.
There is no doubt that someone who shoots predominantly indoors/low light or who needs the pixel count to blow something up to the size of a billboard will not be satisfied. But for anyone who shoots like me and who was looking for their first pro body, this camera is an outstanding value. The internet is filled with these gems at prices less than what someone would pay for a point-and-shoot.
In the end, I liken it to purchasing a high-end sports car; it may be a 10-year old Ferrari, but it is still a Ferrari.
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. However, the camera itself is so fast that it compensated any camera shake I might have had, due to the weight, by it's speed. And, now that I am used to it, I hardly notice it.
The multitude of control buttons can be confusing, but if you are used to the 1D Mark II, it's not a difficult switch. If you are used to the Rebel XT, keep the manual handy for your first few times out.
Whether you shoot in JPEG or RAW, the photos manipulate well in photoshop and you don't lose any quality (in my opinion) for not having the 12 megapixels of the 5D (which was 1 of only 2 reasons why I considered the 5D). Large enlargments (16x20) print up quite excellently and again, you have the speed to NEVER miss a shot. I've found that in shooting portraits with difficult to shoot subjects (children, pets, someone who DOESN'T want to sit for a portrait but his wife is making him...), SPEED does matter and often it's saved me from a failed shoot!
The 1.3x FOV crop factor (vs. the full frame 5D) is definitely a factor to be weighed. Frankly, I use the 17-40L and get excellent landscape photos. As wide (at 22mm) as I could ever wish, and not get "fish-eye". So, I don't find the crop factor to be a personal issue but it was something I had to take into consideration in my choice. While it limits my 24-70L and my 24-105L to only 31.2mm at wide angle, it gives my 70-300 DO IS that "just enough" extra zoom boost (to 390mm) that I don't have to buy yet another expensive lens.
I've been trying to think of the negatives of this camera, in order to give a balanced review. As I said, initially the weight was an issue as well as learning the controls. Both were quickly overcome. The cost is definitely a factor, but especially for anyone who does this for a living, it is definitely worth the $. I like everything about this camera (and I've gone through several others to get here). When I don't have it with me, and find myself with my A620 (my "in the purse" emergency camera) I get so frustrated that the A620 won't do anything even close to what I've now come to expect as the standard for all cameras. So I guess that's the one downside, because it's a large SLR, I don't carry it absolutely (though almost!) everywhere. However, overall, unless you want to pay close to $7K for the Ds and the extra megapixels, I don't believe there's a better camera on the market. I realize that while this review doesn't cover all the technical specs (you can get that on either cnet.com or the-digital-picture.com) I hope it helps someone like me who had a really difficult time making the ultimate decision.
