The new Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is an update to the 18 megapixel 1D X and the camera features an all-new 20.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with dual pixel CMOS AF, as well as a built-in analogue to digital converter for improved readout speed, better dynamic range and noise performance. The camera features internal 4K video recording and a built-in heat-sink to allow recording up to 29 minutes. There are two memory card slots, with CompactFlash, plus high-speed CFast 2.0 to enable quicker write speeds and up to 170 raw shots at 16fps (in live view mode) or 14fps with AE/AF in normal high-speed continuous shooting mode.
