NEW 8.2 MEGAPIXEL CMOS SENSOR
OVERVIEW
OVERVIEW
A NEW LEVEL OF HIGH PERFORMANCE
FAST, ACCURATE AF
FOR EVERY SITUATION
The heart of the EOS-1D Mark II’s stunning image quality is its all-new, Canon designed
and manufactured, CMOS sensor. Canon has doubled the resolution of the EOS-1D with
more than 8 million large pixels on a chip that measures 28.7 x 19.1mm. There is
enough resolution to satisfy professional wedding, portrait, fashion, nature and industrial
photographers – amazing in a camera fast enough to be the sports shooter’s first choice.
The lens magnification factor is only 1.3x, so your wide-angle lenses are still wide.
The large pixels mean more sensitivity to light, higher effective ISOs, better shadow
and highlight detail, less amplification required and much less noise. And CMOS means
significantly less power consumption and longer battery life than CCD.
The EOS-1D Mark II's new AF circuitry provides faster
performance than ever in both One-Shot AF and AI
Servo AF. Compared to the EOS-1D, read-and-react
times are quicker, and the number of AF readings
between shots in an AI Servo AF sequence has been
doubled for superior focus-tracking precision.
Predictive AF control now works effectively even
for single shots or the first shot of a sequence
in AI Servo AF.
NEW ≥II IMAGING PROCESSOR
The amazing new DIGIC II Imaging Processor is one of the key components to the
EOS-1D Mark II’s landmark performance. It places all signal processing on a single
board and it employs the world’s first DDR-SDRAM (Double Data Rate Synchronous
Dynamic Random Access Memory) in a digital camera for ultra-high speed and
reliability. It reads image sensor data from 8 channels simultaneously for blazing
speed combined with enormous file-handling capabilities. The DIGIC II provides
superb color accuracy, wide tonal range, and exceptional detail, all with low noise
and even lower power consumption.
FULL RESOLUTION 8.5 FPS
WITH A 40-SHOT BURST
The world’s fastest* Digital SLR, the EOS-1D Mark II has the ability to shoot 8.5 fps
for up to 40 JPEG or 20 RAW consecutive frames at the maximum resolution of 8.2
megapixels, thanks to a new 8-channel readout from the CMOS sensor together with
the high-speed DDR-SDRAM used for buffer memory. The camera's CF card interface
now transfers data at speeds up to 5.0MB per second, 50% faster than the EOS-1D.
HIGH-PRECISION 45-POINT AREA AF
*Among digital SLR cameras as of February 2004 (based on Canon survey)
The EOS-1D Mark II uses the same legendary 45-point Area AF focusing sensor as the
EOS-1v, -1D and -1Ds cameras. The 45 focusing points are densely packed and can
be manually or automatically selected to meet the needs of any situation. AF speed
and performance is better than ever in the EOS-1D Mark II, with significantly faster
processing of AF information in-camera. Whereas earlier models used a single CPU to
control AF as well as other operations, the Mark II uses a new dual-CPU system that
boosts AF speed and precision.
ACTIVE MIRROR CONTROL
During continuous high-speed shooting, mirror blackout time
becomes a serious problem. The faster the mirror comes down
and stabilizes, the clearer, sharper and brighter the finder image is.
The EOS-1D Mark II shares with the EOS-1v, -1D and -1Ds a Canon
innovation called Active Mirror Control which replaces conventional
suppression of mirror rebound shock with a mechanical system
which incorporates a hook on the backside of the main mirror.
The hook holds the mirror in place when it flips down, reducing
mirror bounce and shake and confining it to a much shorter duration.
In addition to reducing blackout time to a mere 87ms, the finder
image stabilizes faster, giving a much more accurate and less
fatiguing view and giving the predictive AF more time to do its job.
ELIMINATION OF LONG EXPOSURE NOISE
The longer a digital imaging sensor is exposed to light, the greater the likelihood that it will generate digital “noise,” similar to “snow”
on a TV with poor reception. In the EOS-1D Mark II, there is less inherent noise in the system to begin with because of revised on-chip
noise reduction circuitry and the DIGIC II Imaging Processor. For longer exposures, the camera cuts off driving and output current,
and starting at 1 second, Dark Frame Subtraction is optionally available, removing any remaining noise. The result is a digital camera
that yields long-exposure images that were previously the domain of film. This is yet another way in which the EOS-1D Mark II is
the complete professional camera.

Unlike a film camera, a digital SLR’s imaging sensor’s ISO sensitivity can be altered freely from shot to shot. The EOS-1D Mark II
provides a normal ISO range from 100 to 1600 in 1/3 stop increments. The 50 and 3200 speed settings are accessed through
the Custom Functions. The Mark II adds a fascinating kind of additional flexibility in its ISO bracketing which allows the
photographer to keep a given combination of shutter and aperture and vary exposure by having the camera alter the ISO sensitivity.
In addition, there are two custom color matrixes for which you can select your
own mix of color space, saturation and color tone.
CUSTOM PROCESSING
PARAMETERS
By altering these parameters, you can “develop” your
images however you like. The tone curve (standard plus
3 types), sharpness (5 levels) and contrast (5 levels) are
individually controllable. The combination of custom
processing parameters and custom color matrix settings
allow photographers to create specific combinations of
sharpness, contrast, saturation and color tone for either
sRGB or Adobe RGB color spaces.
AUDIO
You can record up to 30 seconds of sound and add it to any image, ideal for photojournalists who need to make
verbal notes in the field. Sound files can be played back with the bundled software.

DATA VERIFICATION KIT
The new optional DVK-E2 Data Verification Kit is a significant
advance for the use of digital photography in forensic
and law enforcement applications. The kit consists of a
dedicated Secure Mobile Card DV-E2 (SMC), a new SMC card
reader with small USB adapter, the EOS Data Verification
Disk which is Windows 2000/XP compatible (Mac version
downloadable from Canon USA's web site) and a manual.
The system can verify that EOS-1D Mark II and EOS-1Ds image
files have not been altered. Verification data is added to images
in the camera when P.Fn-31 is switched on.
OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW OF MAJOR FEATURES
• The Canon EOS-1D Mark II is the
fastest, highest performance digital SLR
ever offered. Its 8.2 megapixel sensor
can fire at 8.5 frames per second
thanks to the amazing speed of the new
DIGIC II Imaging Processor. At maximum
resolution, it has a burst rate of 40 JPEG
or 20 RAW consecutive frames.
EF LENS COMPATIBILITY
The EOS-1D Mark II is compatible with over 50 Canon EF lenses. Its 28.7 x 19.1mm sensor
yields a lens magnification factor of 1.3x. The 1D Mark II user will have access to a unique
array of state-of-the-art optics. The fully electronic EF lens mount operates silently with
unmatched reliability because it completely eliminates all mechanical couplings. Every EF lens
contains its own custom-designed autofocus motor and microprocessor.
The lenses also have an electromagnetic diaphragm
(EMD) to control the aperture electronically with
unmatched precision. Many utilize Canon’s exclusive
Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology, fluorite and ultra-low
dispersion glass, Aspherical elements, inner and
rear focusing, image stabilizers, and/or floating
elements to suppress aberrations at close
focusing distances. Many Canon pro lenses,
including the top-of-the-line L-series, are
highly resistant to dust and water.
• The EOS-1D Mark II is fully compatible
with virtually the entire Canon EOS
system, including EF lenses and nearly
all EOS System accessories.
• The new E-TTL II algorithm system
compares ambient light with subject
location and reflectance, along with
distance information from most EF
lenses, to give the most accurate
flash metering ever.
• Dual memory card slots allow for
simultaneous backup or individual
recording. RAW and JPEG images can
be recorded simultaneously.
• The EOS-1D Mark II is fully customizable.
It has 21 Custom Functions with 67
settings and 27 Personal Functions.
EX-SERIES SPEEDLITE COMPATIBILITY
EOS-1D Mark II is compatible with Canon’s entire line of EX-series
Speedlites (550EX, 420EX and 220EX) plus Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX
and Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX for close-ups. An unlimited number of
550EX and/or 420EX flashes can be linked together wirelessly with
the optional Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 or Speedlite 550EX.
• The new software package, including
new Digital Photo Professional, gives
ultra-fast RAW file viewing, control
and workflow.
• RGB histograms provide full color
information.
• The EOS-1D Mark II has 45 densely
packed autofocus points, 2 new RISC
microprocessors and an entirely new
AF calculation process for faster, more
accurate predictive AF.
DIRECT PRINTING
The EOS-1D Mark II can print directly to a Canon Card Photo Printer, Canon Direct Photo
Printer, or to a non-Canon, PictBridge-compatible printer. With DPOF (Digital Print Order
Format), you can specify which images in the memory cards are to be printed and in what
quantity. This feature is very convenient when you make prints with a DPOF-compatible
printer or photo lab. In direct printing, you can simply print the images specified with DPOF.
The camera also supports Exif Print. This worldwide standard for higher quality digital photos
records camera settings and shooting conditions right in the JPEG file created with each shot.
Then the camera’s own software communicates with an Exif-enabled printer to adjust
parameters based on the individualized information embedded in each image, optimizing
the printed image based on the photographer’s original intent. The EOS-1D Mark II supports
the latest version of Exif (2.21) which adds Adobe RGB to Exif’s color space information.

SPEED
PERFORMANCE
NEW 8.2 MEGAPIXEL
CMOS SENSOR:
The heart of the EOS-1D Mark II is
a state-of-the-art, 8.2 megapixel,
single-plate sensor developed and
manufactured by Canon. It has twice
the resolution of the EOS-1D while
having the same sensor size.
Its effective pixel count is 3520
horizontally by 2342 vertically. Each
pixel is a large 8.2 microns square,
yielding great sensitivity and
responsiveness yet even less noise
than the EOS-1Ds sensor. ISO speeds
range from ISO 100 to 1600 in 1/3 stop
increments, wider than the 1D
or the 1Ds, with ISO 50 and 3200
accessed through the LCD monitor
menu. The ISO 3200 speed setting is
one of several substantial improvements
made possible by the Canon-developed,
on-chip RGB primary color filter which
has larger microlenses but gaps
between them which are 1/3 the size of
those on the 1Ds. These narrow gaps
greatly increase the efficiency of light
convergence and capture while greatly
reducing birefringence.
A second-generation, on-chip noise
elimination circuit takes care of
fixed-pattern and random noise.
In addition to longer battery life, the
lower power consumption of the CMOS
sensor means that the Signal-to-Noise
Ratio is less affected when the sensor’s
temperature rises. For long exposures,
including those up to several minutes,
the circuit-driving standard current and
the power to the output amp are cut off
and the camera applies Dark Frame
10
The EOS-1D Mark II, equipped with
a low-noise, high-speed output amp,
can read 8 channels simultaneously per
line, 4 times the EOS-1Ds’s 2-channel
reading, enabling a continuous
shooting speed of approximately 8.5
frames per second despite the substantial
file size generated by 8.2 megapixels.
The EOS-1D Mark II’s sensor measures
28.7 by 19.1mm, giving a lens focal
length conversion factor of 1.3. At the
magazine standard 300 lines, the Mark II
has enough resolution to fill a whole
page with cropping or to run double
truck uncropped. This is borderline
medium format territory combined with
the convenience and control of digital.
UPGRADED
AUTOFOCUS SYSTEM:
Faster, Smarter and More
Accurate AF
lens-driving control. The EOS-1D
Mark II has two CPUs taking care of
these functions.
Dividing tasks means decisions can be
made simultaneously rather than in
sequence. For example, in One-Shot AF
mode, AF processing, SI display and
aperture stop-down are executed in
parallel with lens driving and mirror
flip-up. In AI Servo AF/Predictive AF,
statistical prediction using the focusing
data from previous focusing operations
is incorporated. The number of focusing
operations per unit time is twice as
many as the 1D’s. With shorter time
intervals and more repetitive focusing
operations, the predictive AF control
works effectively from the first shot
even with subjects moving erratically.
Should the subject’s movement change
just before shutter release, the shorter
focusing operation interval means the
predictive AF control has a higher
probability of catching it.
The AF CPU is a 33 MHz, 32-bit RISC
microcomputer that handles area AF
detection and auto AF point selection.
The camera CPU is a 32 MHz, 32-bit
RISC microcomputer that controls lens
communications, lens driving control
and predictive AF statistical calculations.
As a result, all the processing is faster
than with the EOS-1D’s AF control.
One-Shot AF speed is faster and
AI-SERVO AF focusing precision
is higher.
ADVANCED E-TTL II
FLASH EXPOSURE
SYSTEM:
New Algorithm Gives
Greater Flash Exposure
Control
The 45-point AF unit is the same as
the EOS-1D’s. However, the AF-related
circuitry and the AF algorithm incorporate
a completely new design so that the AF
performance surpasses that of the 1D.
The EOS-1D had a single CPU for AF
operations from focus detection to
The EOS-1D Mark II employs an
“evolved” version of E-TTL, the E-TTL II,
which incorporates distance information
from compatible EF lenses** for more
versatile flash exposure control. E-TTL II
eliminates under-exposure that can
occur with straight reflections by ignoring
PERFORMANCE/SPEED
sensor areas that report abnormally high
levels of reflections from its calculation.
This feature is useful when shooting a
subject with a highly reflective object in
the background or if the subject itself is
highly reflective. In addition, the new
E-TTL Il prevents over-exposure when
photographers lock focus and
recompose the shot by considering the
flash output level calculated according
to the distance information.
Moreover, with the EOS-1D Mark II, the
system is not dependent on the active
AF point for even more consistent flash
exposure result, considering the
numerous focusing points. Here is how
this works: the ambient light is measured
when the shutter button is pressed.
Next, a pre-flash is fired and the metering
sensor takes readings at the central 17
metering zones. The ambient and
pre-flash readings are compared.
The metering areas having a small
difference are selected as the flash
exposure metering areas. Areas with
very big differences between ambient
and pre-flash readings are excluded or
down-weighted because they are
assumed to contain a highly reflective
object, or that the subject is not in that
part of the frame. This assumption is also
ensured by the distance information,
and the algorithm avoids chronic
underexposure problems in such
situation. These readings are weighted,
averaged and compared with the a
mbient light reading, and the main
flash output is then set and stored
in memory.
Thus, unlike the conventional system,
EOS-1D Mark II weighs and averages
the flash metering capturing the subject
as a “plane” and not as a “point”. As a
result, the camera can obtain consistent
flash exposures even if the subject
contains various colors and various
levels of reflections. The camera also
allows the user to select average
metering pattern by using its custom
function settings.
** Refer to the EF Lens Specifications chart on P. 20
for E-TTL II compatible EF lenses.
PERFORMANCE/SPEED
ADVANCED ≥II
IMAGING PROCESSOR:
THE WORLD’S FASTEST
DIGITAL SLR:
Enhanced Speed, Precision
and Control
8.5 fps for up to 40 bursts
at Maximum Resolution
The next-generation DIGIC II Imaging
Processor in the Canon EOS 1D Mark II
features ultra-fast response and high
performance. The single board design
replaces the multiple boards of the 1D,
and the DIGIC II itself is a single-chip
unit whereas the 1D had two separate
imaging engines. The DIGIC II has a
new signal processing algorithm,
8-channel signal reading and faster
image data signal processing. Color
reproduction of high-saturation, bright
subjects is improved. Auto white
balance is more precise, and accuracy
in low color temperatures, such as
tungsten light, is better. False
colors and noise in low light have
been reduced.
The DIGIC II Imaging Processor enables
the EOS-1D Mark II to write to card at
5.0MB/sec, whereas the 1D had
a top speed of 3.2MB/sec and 1Ds is
just under 2MB/sec.
8-channel
signal reading
Seen previously in high-end computers,
double data rate synchronous dynamic
random access memory, DDR-SDRAM,
makes a world-first digital SLR appearance
in the EOS-1D Mark II. This high-speed
buffer memory, twice the size of the
EOS-1D’s, is one of the keys to the
Mark II’s ability to capture 8.2 megapixel
files at 8.5 frames per second for as
many as 40 JPEGs or 20 RAW images.
With its 4.1 megapixels, the 1D could
do 21 JPEGs or 16 RAW images at 8
frames per second. The EOS-1Ds, which
records a towering 11 megapixels, can
fire off 10 frames at 3 frames per second.
QUICKER SHUTTER
RESPONSE :
Reduced Shutter Release
Time Lag
In its normal configuration, the EOS-1D
Mark II has the same shutter release
time lag and viewfinder blackout time
as the EOS-1D, the EOS-1Ds and the
EOS-1v film camera, 55ms and 87ms
respectively when stopping down within
3 stops, but the delay can be reduced
to 40ms at maximum aperture with
Personal Function 26, “shorter shutter
release time lag.” The startup time
after the power switch is turned on is
about 0.5 sec., usefully faster than
the 0.9 sec. of the EOS-1D.

Subtraction automatically. Additionally,
the irregular colors that occur during
long exposures at the corners and
edges have been reduced dramatically.
Noise has been further reduced in two
ways: the digital section of the camera
has been completely separated from
the camera’s other circuitry, causing
less noise to each other, and the
flexible boards’ wiring has been
reconfigured, shortening the signal
path to minimize noise.
RELIABILITY
PRECISION AND WORKFLOW
INCREASED RECORDING
CONTROLS:
The EOS-1D Mark II has an increased
range of recording quality selections
and settings. The JPEG pixel count can
be set between 2.0 and 8.2 megapixels
in approximately 2 megapixel increments
for four possibilities: 8.2 MP (L), 6.4
MP (M1), 4.3 MP (M2) or 2.0 MP (S).
The recording quality, or compression
rate, is independent of the pixel count.
For each of the four pixel counts, there
are ten compression rates selectable
from the menu, 1 to 5 corresponding to
Normal and 6 to 10 corresponding to
Fine. Canon has developed an
advanced RAW format, called CR2, for
Canon Raw, 2nd Edition. This format
allows more room for metadata,
processing parameters stored for
future use. (Photoshop CS is enabled
to recognize much of this metadata.)
All the recording quality levels and
combinations, JPEG, RAW and RAW +
JPEG, can now be accessed directly
with the Quality button and the Quick
Control Dial – there is no need to go
to the Menu.
WHY RAW?
RAW files can be compared to
unedited, unprocessed session
tapes from a music recording
session. Instead of instructing the
camera how to process your images
as you shoot, saving RAW data
means you will always have the
original, unmanipulated information
to go back to. Later, using Digital
Photo Professional (see P.16) or
other compatible software, images
can be adjusted individually or in
batches for color space (including
Wide Gamut RGB), dynamic range,
tone curve, white balance, speed,
color, brightness, contrast, saturation,
hue and tone. Many versions of one
RAW file can be created without
altering the original.

reproduction at low color temperatures
such as tungsten and fluorescent light.
The accuracy of the new algorithm has
made it possible to eliminate the
external AWB sensor and the need
for hybrid AWB.
White Balance Compensation can be
set up to +/- 9 levels in single-level
increments of blue/amber, magenta/
green, or any combination thereof. This
means that correct white balance can
be achieved even in color-ruining light
such as white fluorescent. Unlike
consumable commercial color filters,
the built-in digital color filter never
fades and cannot be scratched.
Shade: Counters strong blue
tones typical in open shade on
sunny days, approx. 7,000K.
Tungsten: Perfect for studio
“hot lights” and conventional
household lamps, approx.
3,200K.
Fluorescent: 4,000K eliminates
green “spike” of fluorescent tubes.
DUAL CF & SD MEMORY
CARD SLOTS:
Flexible and Convenient
The EOS-1D Mark II has two card slots,
one for Compact Flash (CF ) and one for
the physically smaller Secure Digital (SD).
Canon engineers were able to make this
addition without altering the legendary
1 series chassis. There are several ways
to take advantage of this configuration.
The same file can be recorded on each
card, creating a full backup. If one of
the cards becomes full, you can cancel
the backup mode and continue shooting
on the remaining card.
You can select either the CF card or
the SD memory card for recording.
When the card becomes full, you can
switch to the other card. This is not an
automatic process so you will know
you’re now on your “reserve tank.”
Flash: The proper starting point
for many studio strobes and
Canon Speedlites, approx.
6,000K.
SD Memory card
Custom: Highly precise and
perfect for unusual or mixed-light
situations. The photographer
shoots a white object in the
given lighting, then locks in the
proper WB on the LCD screen
based on that image, from
approx. 2,000K to 10,000K.
The EOS-1D Mark II has five pre-set
color matrixes, the same as the EOS-1D
and the EOS-1Ds. The matrixes have
been re-tuned to control red saturation.
The Mark II adds two additional
matrixes which can be user-set for color
space (sRGB or Adobe RGB), color
density (5 levels) and color hue
(5 levels). Color matrix settings on
the menu now state what each setting
is (standard, portrait, high-saturation,
Adobe RGB, low-saturation) rather than
just a number.
Color Temperature: Dial-in any
color temperature in degrees
Kelvin – from 2,800K to 10,000K –
and balance the color for that
lighting. Incredible precision,
since you can adjust in 100
degrees K increments.
Rather than being set in a menu
window, color temperatures can now
be entered directly in the Color
Temperature selection mode using the
WB button and the main dial. This is
easier than before and is more likely
to prevent errors.

Like the EOS-1D and -1Ds, the use of
magnesium alloy is continued for the
top, front and rear covers, the memory
card slot cover and the chassis. The
mirror box is a machined aluminum
die-casting. The dust-proofing and
waterproofing seals have been
improved. Shutter durability has been
increased from 150,000 cycles on the
1D and the 1Ds, as well as the EOS-1v
film camera, to 200,000 cycles –
the highest reliability rating ever for
an SLR with a focal plane shutter.
Additionally, the flash accessory shoe
has been strengthened to reflect
the service conditions that Mark II’s
may face.

The display is very sharp and detailed
so it is easier to read text and data
and to evaluate images.
Images on the memory cards are stored
in master “DCIM” folders. Within these
folders, you can create up to 500
additional folders and assign images
to any folder with the ability to add
new folders or change to a previous
folder at any time. You can protect or
delete images on a folder-by-folder
basis. All this is done within the
camera using the menu controls.

to this advance include:
• Personal settings or settings for a
specific stadium can be shared with
and used on multiple cameras.
• The menu and C.Fn/P.Fn settings
specified on one camera can be saved
and uploaded to another camera,
speeding up and simplifying complex
setup tasks and minimizing the
chance that errors might occur.
• When the camera is sent in for servicing
or repairs, personal settings can be
stored and then reloaded when the
camera is returned so that the camera
is set up exactly as before.
CONVENIENCE/CONNECTIVITY
INCREASED
CONNECTIVITY:
Faster Data Transfer Speed
The EOS-1D and -1Ds use 6-pin
FireWire™/IEEE1394 connections for
data transfer, the 1Ds at 60 Mbps and
the 1D at 40 Mbps. The 1D Mark II uses
a 4-pin FireWire™ port which creates
room for a USB 1.1 interface (for Direct
Printing) and video out, all in the place
previously occupied by IEEE1394 alone.
The data transfer speed of the Mark II
is usefully faster thanks to DIGIC II:
100 Mbps. The new camera-direct USB
port, with the small Type B connector,
is used exclusively for direct printing via
Canon Card Photo Printers, Canon
Direct Photo Printers or PictBridgeCompatible Printers. The USB and
IEEE1394 ports are positioned close
together to make it impossible for the
two to be connected at the same time.
Under the upper rubber cover, there is a
PC flash sync connection and an
N3-type remote control terminal.

It stipulates the shooting information
appended to images. The EOS-1D Mark II
supports the latest version of Exif (2.21)
which adds Adobe RGB to Exif’s color
space information. Photoshop can see
Exif 2.21 files. When an Exif 2.21
compatible application is used, it is
automatically opened using the Adobe
RGB color space. Exif 2.21 compatible
printers will produce prints with
optimum saturation adjustment.

In response to users who had trouble
operating the 1D memory card slot
cover knob with their gloves on, the
shape of the knob handle has been

under the handle. The door has also
been modified to prevent data loss
in case the slot cover is opened
accidentally during data writing.
The data writing resumes when
the slot cover is closed.
In the EOS-1D and -1Ds, the IPTC data
could be appended only to RAW
images. With the Mark II, the IPTC
information can be appended to JPEG
images instead. The new Canon
software is compatible with the image
transfer software used by the news
services. This should prove to be a
substantial benefit to agencies and
photojournalists because JPEGs are
smaller and faster to transmit and
therefore far more likely to be used

DESIGN OVERVIEW
AUDIO RECORDING
Sound recorded with the built-in
microphone for a maximum of 30
seconds is attached to the respective
image in WAV format.
AUTOFOCUS
The EOS-1D Mark II has a 45-point Area
AF. Manual selection of 45, 11 or 9 AF
points is possible. The 7 vertical AF
points at the center are cross-type sensors
that are also vertical-line sensitive up to
f/2.8. There are three autofocus modes:
One-Shot AF, which stops and locks
when focus is achieved, Predictive AI
Servo AF, which constantly tracks subject
movement and focuses until the start of
exposure, and Manual focusing, which
has focus confirmation from the in-focus
indicator light and the superimposed AF
point. EX-speedlites that have built-in
AF-assist emit a near-infrared beam
when necessary to assist autofocus.
BODY AND EXTERIOR
The body, the memory card slot cover
and the top, front and rear covers are
all magnesium alloy.
CAMERA TYPE
The EOS-1D Mark II is a digital autofocus,
autoexposure camera. It is compatible
with all Canon EF lenses (except EF-S
lens). The lens focal length conversion
factor is 1.3x.
CUSTOMIZATION
There are 21 Custom Functions with 67
settings with the camera alone. The
Personal Functions add 27 additional
settings. The camera settings can be
saved on a memory card and then
transferred to another camera or saved
and reinstalled after servicing.

DIRECT PRINTING:
DIRECT PHOTO AND PICTBRIDGE
Dedicated cables are used to connect
the camera to Canon Direct Photo
Printers, Card Photo Printers and
PictBridge-compatible printers.
By operating camera controls, paper
sizes are selected and JPEG images
(Large/Medium/Small) can be printed
singly or in batches. There are 8
available steps of horizontal
cropping and 5 vertical steps.
DRIVE SYSTEM
There are five drive modes: single,
approximately 3 fps, approximately
8.5 fps, 10-second self-timer and
2-second self-timer. During continuous
shooting, images are stored in the
DDR-SDRAM buffer memory. When the
buffer becomes full, further shooting
is disabled until at least one frame
becomes available. At shutter speeds
of 1/250 or faster, the EOS-1D Mark II
can fire bursts at 8.5 fps up to 40 JPEGs
or 20 RAW frames. After the image is
captured, the image review can be set to
OFF, ON, or ON (INFO). The review time
can be set to 2, 4 or 8 seconds or Hold.
EXPOSURE CONTROL
The EOS-1D Mark II has a 21-zone
silicon photocell that handles maximum
aperture TTL metering. There are four
selectable metering modes: Evaluative,
which is linkable to any AF point, Partial,
which meters approximately 13.5% of
the screen, Center spot metering, which
reads approximately 3.8% of the screen
and has variations of AF point-linked or
multi-spot metering, and Center-weighted
average metering. The Mark II has
seven shooting modes: Shutter-priority
AE, Aperture-priority AE, Program AE,
either Evaluative or Averaged E-TTL II
program autoflash (21-zone flash
metering), Manual exposure, Flash
metered manual or Bulb. The metering
range is from EV 0 to EV 20 and the ISO
range is from 100 to 1600 with 50 and
3200 menu selectable. In addition to
manual exposure compensation,
autoexposure bracketing, AEB, is
possible +/- 3 stops in 1/3 or 1/2 stop
increments. AE Lock works in AE lock
can be set automatically or manually
in AE modes.
EXTERNAL INTERFACES
The EOS-1D Mark II has a 4-pin
IEEE1394/FireWire™ port, a camera
direct Type B USB port, an NTSC/PAL
video OUT terminal, a type N3 remote
control terminal, and a PC terminal for
non-dedicated external flash units.
FLASH SPECIFICATIONS
Flash sync is provided from the side
PC terminal and the newly strengthened
hot shoe. A locking pin in the hot shoe
prevents Speedlite slippage. The two
connections can be used simultaneously.
Hot shoe mounted flash units can sync
at 1/250 or slower. Studio flash can
sync at 1/125 or slower. E-TTL is
enabled with EX-series Speedlites.
Flash exposure compensation can be set
manually +/- 3 stops. Flash exposure
bracketing, FEB, can be accomplished
with the 550EX, MR-14EX and MT-24EX
Speedlites. During FEB continuous
shooting, the shutter release locks when
the flash becomes unable to fire. The
three Speedlites mentioned, plus the
420EX and the ST-E2 can be operated
wirelessly. Three slave groups can be
controlled, a flash ratio can be set and
FEB can be set according to the flash
ratio. The 420EX can function only as a
slave, and the MR-14EX and MT-24EX can
function only as master units.
IMAGE PROTECTION/ERASE
Single image, all images in a folder
or all images in a memory card can be
protected or unprotected. Single image,
all images in a folder or all images in a
memory card can be erased if they are
not protected. Any protected images
cannot be erased with the camera.
SPECIFICATIONS
IMAGE SENSOR
The all-new sensor in the EOS-1D Mark II
is an 8.2 effective megapixel unit,
3520 (H) x 2342 (V). The aspect ratio
is 3:2, the same as a 35mm film frame.
Each pixel is 8.2mm square. The sensor
incorporates an RGB primary color filter
and a low-pass filter. The sensor cleaning
mode is menu controlled.
LCD MONITOR
The 2.0 inch, TFT color, liquid-crystal

POWER SOURCE
Standard power is from one NP-E3 nickel
metal hydride (NiMH) pack. Its NC-E2
charger is included with the camera kit.
The DC Coupler Kit, DCK-E1, permits the
camera to run on AC. There is a CR2025
backup button-type battery. Power saving
(auto power off) can be set for 1, 2, 4,
8, 15 or 30 minutes.
RECORDING MEDIA DRIVE
There is one slot each for the CF and
the SD memory cards. The red LED
memory card access lamp blinks. Error
warnings are displayed on the top LCD
panel, in the viewfinder and on the LCD
monitor. The shutter release locks.
A menu setting permits separate
card formatting.
RECORDING SYSTEM
The camera accommodates CF and SD
memory cards. It provides five choices
for image size: JPEGs of 8.2, 6.4, 4.3
and 2.0 megapixels and RAW at 8.2
megapixels. Ten levels of quality are
selectable for each JPEG image size.
RAW and JPEG can be recorded
simultaneously. The recording formats
conform to DCF 2.0 and Exif 2.21. There
are three choices for file numbering:
sequential, auto and manual. Three
sets of processing parameters are
controllable by the user: Tone Curve
(3 choices), Sharpness Level (5 choices)
and Contrast (5 choices). The Back-up
mode, which is menu-controlled,
records the same image on both the
CF and the SD memory cards.
At maximum aperture, the lag can be
reduced to 40ms. Noise reduction is
applied to shutter speeds from 1
second to bulb. The self-timer allows
2 or 10 second delays. There is no
camera shake warning.
VIEWFINDER
The viewfinder has interchangeable
screens and dioptric adjustment from
–3.0 to +1.0 diopters. It has 100%
coverage. The viewfinder blackout time
is 87ms for shutter speeds 1/60 and
higher. There is no mirror cut-off for EF
lenses up to 1200mm. There is a
depth-of-field preview, a mirror lock-up
function and an eyepiece shutter.
WHITE BALANCE
White Balance is indicated on the rear
LCD panel. There are ten separate
settings: Auto (approx. 3000-7000 K),
Daylight (approx. 5200 K), Shade
(approx. 7000 K), Cloudy (approx.
6000 K), Tungsten light (approx.
3200 K), Fluorescent (approx. 4000 K),
Flash (approx. 6000 K), Manual (settable
by calibration standard from 200010000 K), Color temperature (set Kelvin
value from 2800-10000 manually) and
PC-1 to PC-3, allowing registration of up
to three color temperatures with
dedicated software.
White balance bracketing permits
capture of three frames with one press
of the shutter button. Bracketing can
be up to +/- 3 levels of blue/amber or
magenta/green. White balance
compensation has nine levels of
adjustment for blue/amber and
magenta/green.

As an owner of a Canon EOS camera, you will achieve the best results in your photography using Canon's own EF lenses. Each EOS camera body and each EF lens has its
own built-in micro computer. These micro computers store a range of special data to ensure the smooth operation of bodies and EF lenses which support two-way digital
communications between each part to allow exchange of information. Since the EOS System's market launch in 1987, new functions have been added on a continuing basis.
These improvements include adding Image Stabilizer to some lenses, speeding up the AF function, increasing the number of focusing points, and the addition of the Eye
Controlled Focus™ Function. As the system's range of functions has evolved, the nature of the basic system of communications between lens and body has evolved as well,
ensuring that complete compatibility is maintained. This process of evolution will continue in the future with the addition of more new specifications, resulting in still further
gains in reliability. Accordingly, in order to realize the maximum performance of the EOS system and thereby achieve the highest possible photographic
quality, we recommend that you use Canon EF lenses and Canon brand name accessories, since they are designed and manufactured to match the special
qualities of your EOS camera.
