Resolution, sensitivity and latitude
At the heart of EOS-1D X Mark II is a Canon developed CMOS sensor that marks the next generation of professional image quality in the EOS line-up. With enhanced light collecting performance and the ability to convert this light into digital signal, this sensor delivers a high-sensitivity performance reducing noise in both high and low ISO speeds, along with high latitude to pull details in dark areas.

Photography so sharp it's dangerous
An expanded focus area with 61 individually selectable AF points, including 41 cross-type and 5 dual cross-type AF points, ensures enhanced flexibility in framing your subjects. Even at f/8, all 61 points are at your disposal including 21 cross type sensors1. Combined with the advance AI Servo AF III+ and improved EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system, the EOS-1D X Mark II delivers exceptionally sharp and precise autofocus. *1The number of focusing points, cross-type focusing points, and dual cross-type AF points vary depending on the lens used.

Be an Action Hero with high speed performance.
Breaking the boundaries of high-speed shooting, the EOS-1D X Mark II can shoot up to 14 fps with full AF / AE tracking or up to 16 fps in Live View, thanks to the speed of DIGIC 6+ processors and the new mirror drive system. With the CFast 2.0 media, the camera can deliver a continuous burst of up to 170 uncompressed 14-bit RAW images.

Immerse your audience with edge-of-your-seat definition.
The power of 4K resolution brings your stories to life. Shoot internally on CFast 2.0 (recommended) media in 4K (4096 x 2160) up to 60p or Full HD up to 120p for slow motion creativity.

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum, opened in 1932, was once the Madrid home of this influential impressionist painter.
