Large CMOS Sensor
(Approximately 8.2 million effective pixels)
Canon’s new CMOS sensor with high-speed 8-channel reading technology delivers exceptional image quality with low noise and an extremely high S/N ratio. Its large 28.7 x 19.1mm size realizes an effective angle of view that’s just 1.3 times the focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses.
8.5 fps Continuous Shooting
(With up to 40 fps burst)
The EOS-1D Mark II is the world’s fastest digital AF-SLR camera (as of January, 2004). Its record-breaking speed is achieved even in the Large JPEG setting (approx. 3,504 x 2,336 pixels), and 8.5 fps are maintained during max. bursts of 40 shots (20 shots in RAW format) whether recording in the One-Shot AF or AI Servo AF mode.
White Balance Compensation
New WB Compensation allows separate or combined adjustment of blue/amber and magenta/green biases in ±9 steps.
100-1600 ISO Speed
ISO speeds are selectable in 1/3 increments.
Software and Accessories
Improved software features, which include EOS Viewer Utility for faster image preview, and Digital Photo Professional for high-speed processing, offer easier operability and handling of RAW images.
DIGIC II Imaging Engine
Compatible with DDR-SDRAM, Canon’s newly developed, state-of-the-art DIGIC II imaging engine achieves continuous shooting of 8.2 megapixel images at 8.5 fps and employs original Canon algorithms to accurately convert signals into crisp, high-resolution images with natural color and rich gradation.
E-TTL II Autoflash
Canon’s advanced Evaluative Through-The-Lens (E-TTL) Autoflash system.
Customizable Color Matrix
Seven Color Matrix settings are provided for JPEG and RAW images, allowing easy adjustment of color space, color saturation and color tone. The settings include five convenient factory presets and two customizable settings, with five-level adjustment, that can be saved for future use.
