Overview

Description by Canon:

Mind-blowing Megapixels
The EOS-1Ds Mark II's phenomenal 16.7 Megapixel full frame (36 x 24mm) CMOS sensor produces files which convert to 50MB uncompressed TIFF at 24 bit colour depth: the standard acceptable quality for leading international photo agencies and stock libraries. It features a built-in low-pass filter to eliminate false colour and moiré effects, plus an on-chip noise elimination circuit. Low (L:50) and high (H:3200) settings can be selected to extend the camera's wide 100-1600 ISO speed range.

Processing power
Canon's second-generation DIGIC II processor powers the camera's commanding performance. The combined technology of the new CMOS sensor, DIGIC II and a large buffer system work together to deliver 4-frame per second 32-frame Large JPEG continuous shooting.

 

Built toughThe camera is protected with a robust water-resistant magnesium alloy body, while shutter durability is an impressive 200,000 cycles. For critical shooting conditions, its back-up mode allows dual recording to both CF and SF memory cards.

 

Flash system
Canon's Evaluative Through-The-Lens (E-TTL II) auto-flash system gives the EOS-1Ds Mark II a distance-linked precision flash system that is accurate and reliable in all conditions. E-TTL II achieves the correct exposure and more stable control, particularly with bright or reflective objects or off-centre subjects.

 

Creative controlThe EOS-1Ds Mark II's 2.0", 230,000 pixel LCD is ideal for checking focus and composition and its 10x zoom magnifies details to ensure you have the shot you want. As well as simultaneously shooting RAW and JPEG, there’s also the option to select sRGB or Adobe RGB colour space. White balance (WB) bias is correctable by +/-9 levels for both blue/amber and magenta/green bias and WB bracketing is supported up to ±3 levels.

 

Connectability
New Digital Photo Professional software allows high-speed processing of lossless RAW files for greater control. For complete connectivity, the camera's interfaces include FireWire (IEEE1394) and Video Out. A USB port is included for direct printing. The EOS-1Ds Mark II is EF lens and EX-series Speedlite compatible.
