Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

Okay, they may have not officially released the press release earlier in the day, but this checks out.

CFast 2.0 seems to be where manufacturers are now seriously moving to, but the cards are still a rarity.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

All of it is blah blah blah for me until you get to dual pixel touch screen focusing, like the 70D.
4K at 60 fps is good, too.

Wondering how high it will have clean iso?

Still 8-bit.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

I'm wondering if 4K is targeted at still shooters who want to pull a 8MP still photo by shooting 60 times a second.

I was actually expecting to completely write this camera off, but Canon has dropped some nice video features into it, at a price that isn't completely insulting.

Still, if I'm dropping $6k on a camera, I'll probably get a Sony FS5, as I need XLR inputs more than I need something super compact.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

Dpreview:
With its touchscreen-operated Dual Pixel AF system, the 1D X II should be one of the easiest cameras to capture footage with if you're not an experienced videographer. The autofocus should be able to refocus without distracting focus wobble simply by tapping the screen. What's more, tracking sensitivity and AF speeds can be adjusted for movie recording, allowing videographers to optimize continuous focus for their particular application.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

For me the allure is being able to use some of my super nice fashion/sports lenses and capture 4K with touch screen pulled focus. For example Jet Ski stunt riders looks so perfect when framed in my Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens. I just can't imagine a better fit for my needs. Also it's great for shooting some 4K videos of my Models when on location as well.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

Here’s a link to a video from Canon introducing the EOS-1D X mkII. It does a great job going over features and the like.

Re: Official Canon Website Release EOS 1DX2

I'm glad they put the touch screen on it... the 70D spoiled me. It's the one thing holding me back from the 7D Mk. II.

Same here.

Or rather, its the one thing holding me back from the Sony A7S ii

I use the 70Ds anywhere the light is decent/good. Already have a 5d Mark ii for worse light. Am starting to save for new cameras, thought the A7S ii with 4K and baller low light was the answer, then see this new Canon has touchscreen focusing and think.... hmmm... maybe I'll hold out for all 3 things together (4K, low light, touch screen focusing).
