Canon’s advanced 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor can detect flickering lights at 100-120 Hz and analyses 216-zones with intelligent algorithms enabling the 1D X Mark II to deliver consistent exposures in even the most challenging of lighting scenarios.

The combination of dual DIGIC 6+ processors, advanced 20.2-megapixel sensor and 61-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables the Canon 1D X Mark II to lock onto and track subjects across the frame effortlessly.

For photographers who travel, location-based geotagging can be enabled in the 1D X Mark II via built-in GPS. Photographers who work in media room environments will benefit from the camera’s industry-standard USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, as well as compatibility with the Canon WFT-E8 or WFT-E6 wireless adapters for remote capture and image transfer via a laptop or smart device.
