  • Editorial ReviewsAmazon.comCanons EOS-1D Mark II (successor to the original EOS-1D) is the ultimate professional digitalSLR. Nearly doubling its predecessors resolution to 8.2 megapixels, it also offers an improvedshooting buffer for continuous shooting 8.5 frames per second at full resolution--making it theworlds fastest digital SLR (as of January, 2004). It also features a faster DIGIC II imagingengine, a rugged yet lightweight weather-resistant magnesium alloy construction, capability forcustom and personal presets, and dual storage slots for CompactFlash and Secure Digital cards.Optics and ResolutionCanons newly developed single-plate CMOS sensor with 8-channel reading technology deliversexceptional image quality, with approximately 8.2 million effective pixels (8.5 million totalpixels) and a generous 28.7 x 19.1mm image size. The sensors 3:2 aspect ratio is the same as in35mm cameras, and the sensors large size realizes an effective angle of view thats just 1.3 timesthe focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses. It features 3504 x 2336, 3104 x 2072, 2544 x1696, and 1728 x 1152 pixel resolution settings.A new on-chip noise elimination circuit eradicates fixed pattern and random noise. A low-passfilter placed in front of the sensor reduces false color and moire effects, while the infrared filtersuppresses red fringing caused by sensor reflections and fog.RAW processingNew Digital Photo Professional image processing software is provided for high-speed processingof lossless RAW files. It enables real-time display and immediate application of adjustments toimages and includes a wide array of RAW, TIFF, or JPEG image editing functions, which givecontrol over variables such as white balance, dynamic range, exposure compensation and colortone. It supports sRGB, Adobe RGB, and Wide Gamut RGB color spaces.Digic II Imaging ProcessorCanons newly developed, state-of-the-art DIGIC II imaging engine achieves super high speedprocessing that results in continuous shooting of 8.2-megapixel images at 8.5 fps in maximumbursts of 40 (JPEG format) or 20 (RAW format) shots. By handling larger volumes of imagedata, DIGIC II also contributes to lower power consumption: up to about 1,200 shots can betaken on a full battery at 20 degrees C, or around 800 shots at 0 degrees C.More FeaturesThe new 230,000-pixel, 2.0-inch color TFT LCD offers nearly twice the resolution of monitorson other EOS digital models, nearly 100% coverage of JPEG images, and a new bolder typefacethat simplifies reading of text menus. Photos displayed on the LCD monitor can be magnifiedfrom 1.5X to 10X in 15 increments, allowing you to check the focus and exposure of imageswith high precision.You can easily tailor the EOS-1D MARK II to meet your own specialized needs:
  •  21 Custom Functions with 67 settings include the removal of the ISO speed extensionsetting to the ISO speed extension menu, the addition of new E-TTL averaged autoflashmetering, and the inclusion of AI Servo continuous shooting, which was previously aPersonal Function. 25 Personal Functions can be installed in the camera at any time, via driver software, tomeet high-level customization needs. New features include the ability to append data fordata verification and the ability to apply the Quick Control Dials ON/OFF switch to theMain Dial to prevent accidental changes to settings when shooting remotely with EOSCapture.Other features include: Images can be recorded in the JPEG image format, the RAW image format, or bothformats simultaneously. Seven Color Matrix settings are provided for JPEG and RAW images, including fivefactory presets that were previously available and two new settings that allowindependent user adjustment of color space, color saturation, and color tone within aprescribed range. ISO speeds are selectable in 1/3 increments (100-1600) and may be set as low as 50 or ashigh as 3200 through the ISO extension menu. It offers 10 selectable white balance modes and a new WB Compensation function, whichallows adjustment of blue/amber and magenta/green biases in +/-9 steps, as well ascombined use of light-balancing (LB) and color-correction (CC) equivalent digital colorfilters. Canons improved Evaluative Through-The-Lens (E-TTL) Autoflash system offers newaveraged metering in addition to the evaluative metering available on other EOS models. Designed as a serious tool for professionals, the EOS-1D MARK II offers rigidmagnesium alloy in the chassis and external covers (top, front, rear and memory card slotcover).Lens CompatibilityCanons lineup of professional EF lenses--including over 50 models ranging from 14mm ultra-wide-angle to 1,200mm super-telephoto--are compatible with the new EOS-1D Mark II (exceptthe EF-S line). Canons sophisticated electronic lens mount technology communicates with thecamera as soon as the lens is mounted to transfer information about the lens, such as its type, f-number and focal length, thus enabling faster, more precise control from the camera.EF lenses offer professional capabilities that meet wide-ranging needs, including such features asan Ultrasonic Motor that silently drives the autofocus mechanism with very high precision, anImage Stabilizer that automatically compensates for camera shake via microcomputer, advancedaspherical optics, fluorite lenses, Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lenses, and Super UD lenses.Storage and TransferThe EOS-1D Mark II offers support for both CompactFlash Type I and II (making it MicroDrivecompatible) and Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. Images can be recorded on a CompactFlashcard or SD memory card alone; on both cards at the same time as a safeguard against losing
  • important data; or on both cards, one at a time, to maximize storage capacity. It connects to PCsand Macs via FireWire (also referred to as IEEE1394, or i.Link) and USB 1.1 (which activatesPictBridge printing capabilities).Power and SizeThe camera is powered by a rechargeable NiMH (nickel metal hydride) battery pack (NP-E3,included); it also requires one CR2025 for date and time settings. It measures 6.1 x 6.2 x 3.1inches and weighs 43 ounces (camera body only without batteries; battery adds 11.8 ounces).Whats in the BoxThis package includes the EOS-1D Mark II digital SLR camera body, rechargeable NiMHbattery (NP-E3), AC adapter (DCK-E1), CR2025 battery, and USB and FireWire (IEEE1394)cables. The CD-ROM includes EOS Viewer Utility software for faster image preview, andDigital Photo Professional software for high-speed processing and handling of RAW images. Itis compatible with over 60 Canon EF lenses (excluding EF-S lens) and the entire Canon EXseries Speedlite flash range.Customer ReviewsMost helpful customer reviews36 of 38 people found the following review helpful.10,000th Photo ReportBy Christopher CoyneIm a recreational photographer, and I love this camera. This is my 7th month with the beast --since I pre-ordered it early from Amazon by MISTAKE. (Long story)Before buying the 1D Mii, you should know a few things:1. Its easy to overlook the spec that the cameras USB connection is 1.1 not 2.0. This is 40 timesslower, and Canon clearly intended the Mark II to be connected via firewire. That said, Ioccasionally use it with my laptop on the road, which only has a USB connection. Its convenientthat the port is there, but my 1GB CF card takes a good half hour to empty.2. By the time youve attached a solid L series or comparable lens to this camera, it weighsenough that lugging it around on your shoulder, even without a camera bag full of tricks, is quitea burden. Also, I was talking to a professional photographer who wouldnt buy the model justbecause cameras this heavy give her wrist trouble. If youve NEVER held a camera this size inyour hand, I recommend borrowing one first or checking our your local camera store, even if youdo ultimately buy from Amazon.3. The camera conveniently supports both SD and CF cards. Unfortunately theres no way tocopy between the two cards using the camera. Its not a gigantic deal, but there were times I hadto wait to get home from a trip to free up the SD card when I didnt have a camera cable, but just
  • an external CF reader.Those are really the only 3 things I wish Id known before I bought the camera...but would theyhave affected my purchase? Probably not! As I said, I bought the camera by mistake. Has it beenloads of fun? Definitely. I have prints almost as good as medium format - at 100 times theconvenience.68 of 79 people found the following review helpful.Canons EOS-1D-Mark-II - Best Performer of the Decade...By James L. WilsonCanons EOS-1D-Mark-II -Best Performer of the Decade..Reviewer: Jim Wilson (fau@bellsouth.net) Boca Raton, Florida, USA, June 3rd, 2004/9pmCanons EOS-1D-Mark-II -Best Performer of the Decade.....This mini-review will give some initial impressions with the first week of use and testing. I wasone of the early users of the DCS-560 Canon/Kodak cameras, which was great camera for itstime however at $25m a copy. Looking at this new Mark-II with its feature set, pixel count,image quality, speed, in camera processing parameters, 8+ fps.... the list goes on and on... what aperformer. This digital camera has almost everything for a broad range of uses. With 8.2MPsensor and using LizardTechs PrintPro to up-size the image 250% produces huge images whichwould challenge the best medium format digital backs. The images are pure, clean, crisp, andaccurate. If youre a RAW shooter the included software will give all the post imaging adjustingone can imagine. Many of my assignments have good or controlled lighting therefore Im quitehappy with in-camera processing. I go with +1 or +2 ticks on the sharpening, and +1 on the colorso the skin tones are more towards tan. This heavy duty camera, literally heavy, is such awonderful piece to work with, its worth the extra size and weight. When one combines thiscamera with Canons line of "L" series lenses, this gives the user an incredible feeling ofconfidence when on assignment, whether taking pictures of products, food, science, fashion,engineering, construction, or action sports for NCAA events. This camera also re-defines qualitylow-light imaging. An ISO of 1600 produces images with very good results, and images at 3200are surprisingly sharp, which until today was unheard of. ISOs of 50 through 1250 produce cleannoise-free, or near-noise-free beautiful images.As to image sizes, when shooting in JPEG mode, the user may change the JPEG compressionsettings from numeric values from 1-10, as with Photoshop when saving images. I set the JPEGvalue to 10 which produces file size of about 6 million bytes +/- 1 million bytes, depending onimage detail and light level; low light, high ISO will result in higher image sizes. Therefor with a2GB data card expect 330 image capacity. Using the FireWire interface, downloads average5.5MB images at the rate of about 10 per minute.As an opinion, in the future several items Canon could work on to improve this already beautifulmasterpiece:1. Use a full 24mmx36mm imager2. Increase pixel dimensions to 3600x5400 pixels
  • 3. Increase near-noiseless ISOs to 64004. Decrease camera weight and size5. Change battery system to Lithium-Ion.6. Provide an extra-bright 3" diagonal LDC display.7. Oh why not, ...lets ask for 12 fps.James L Wilson, Prof., Principles.of.Digital.Photography and.Post.Image.ProcessingFlorida.Atlantic.University Boca.Raton.Campus Operating.Entity.BocaDigital.LLC.Quality.Digital.Imaging Post.Office.Box.520 Boca.Raton.Florida.USA.33429Internet.E.Mail.Address For.Faculty.and.Students.mail.use: FAU@bellsouth.netFor.Other.Business.mail.please.use: BocaDigital@bellsouth.net Desk.561.416.1110SecureFax.561.892.2681Comments: It is important to read the included documentation so that one can utilize (some of)the large feature-set. Its worth the effort since the features provided solve most of thephotographers needs.Professor Jim Wilson, "Principles of Digital Photography"16 of 17 people found the following review helpful.Incredible!By JMI cannot say enough about this camera! From the moment you pick up the box, you know youhave quality. The construction and materials used is top notched. Contents of the box can befound elsewhere, so I wont bother with the details.Charging of the battery to full takes 2hrs. If you have memory on the battery from repeatedcharges without complete depletion, you can recondition the battery with the included charger. Itjust takes 8hrs. While many lament the fact that no Li-ion battery was included, Canon seems tohave anticipated the needs of professionals in the field.One also has the option of being plugged into the AC outlet and not dependent on batteries.Reading the manual takes a bit of time. The camera has endless customizable functions whichcan be overwhelming at times. Not that it should deter you, but one will rarely need all thosefunctions anyway.Using the camera did not seem too difficult. Many functions need the use of two buttons, whichmay take some getting used to. Navigating through the menu was confusing initally, butimproved as time goes on.Autofocus speed is responsive and sharp. Shooting at high ISOs (>1000) had minimal noise.Looking at some of my pictures taken with 1 fluorescent light in the room and an ISO of 1600,appeared as if a flash was used. Photos of my black lab was incredible considering the ambientlight and high ISO.
  • The camera is always ready to go. If you are in the manipulating within the depths of the menuheirarchy, and want to suddenly take a shot, just press on the shutter button, compose, focus, andshoot. Its quick and responsive. Incredible...!Some may be wondering the sizes of the pictures. JPEGs have 4 sizes and range from 1 - 2.8MB; RAW files are 8.4MB.One can take an average of 800 - 1200 shots on a full battery charge--assuming one has thecapacity to hold it.Prints on my i9900 are outstanding.Cost is a pretty penny and then some. Also consider that Amazon is an authorized Canonreseller. Many of the rebates require that you purchase from an authorized reseller to be eligiblefor the rebates. Also, some of the internet deals for the camera are not from authorized resellers.Overall, a very impressive camera. The cost for many may be prohibitive for many. The EOS20D may be a more cost effective alternative, but I do NOT regret my decision one bit.See all 10 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryPatio Furniture SetsCamera & Photo Similar ItemsLenmar DMCE3 Digital Camera Equi...$31.83Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM LensToo low to displayCanon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telep...Too low to display
