Canon EOS-1D Mark II User manual
Digital Camera for Professionals
How high can resolution and continuous shooting speed go?
EOS -1D Mark II has the answer.
The reborn EOS-1D achieves 8.2 effective megapixel resolution
even at a continuous shooting speed of 8.5 frames per second.
This extraordinary feat is more than evolution, it’s a revolution in
digital camera performance. Versatility, operational ease and all
aspects of camera design have been meticulously refined to give
professionals a genuine edge at decisive moments.
Higher performance and convenience
borne of advanced technology
and responsiveness to the requests
of professionals.

Large CMOS Sensor (approx. 8.2 million effective pixels)
Canon’s new CMOS sensor with high-speed 8-channel reading
technology delivers exceptional image quality with low noise
and an extremely high S/N ratio. Its large 28.7 x 19.1mm size
realizes an effective angle of view that’s just 1.3 times the
focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses.

DIGIC II Imaging Processor
Color matrix
Compatible with DDR-SDRAM, Canon’s
newly developed, state-of-the-art DIGIC II
Imaging Processor achieves continuous
shooting of 8.2 megapixel images at
8.5 fps and employs original Canon
algorithms to accurately convert signals
into crisp, high-resolution images with
natural color and rich gradation.
8.5 fps continuous shooting with up to 40 images per burst
The EOS-1D Mark II is the world's fastest Digital AF-SLR
camera (as of February 2004). Its record-breaking 8.5 fps
speed is achieved even at full resolution (3,504 x 2,336
pixels), and is maintained during max. bursts of 40 shots
in JPEG mode (20 shots in RAW or RAW+JPEG mode).
E-TTL II Autoflash
Canon’s new Evaluative Through-The-Lens (E-TTL) Autoflash
system offers evaluative metering as well as new averaged
metering, which employs a new recording algorithm to
achieve more stable control and help prevent underexposure
and overexposure even when the subject changes location.
High reliability and rigidity
The highly reliable EOS -1D Mark II features rigid magnesium
alloy in the chassis and external covers that also contributes
to electromagnetic shielding, a durable finish and extremely
low body weight. At 200,000 shutter cycles, shutter durability
is 30% higher than in the EOS -1D and EOS -1Ds.
Software and accessories
Improved software features, which include EOS Viewer Utility
for faster image preview, and Digital Photo Professional
for high-speed processing, offer easier operability and
handling of RAW images. With the inclusion of such
accessories and a variety of EF lenses, Canon delivers
total digital imaging solutions.
