So, we know that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is due to be out this week, (we had leaks and rumors) but it is not out yet, at least not on Canon’s web site. Well, looks like someone hit the publish button a bit early and put it in the store, exposing the full prices, photos and specs of the 1DX mark II. Yes PROcam, I am taking about you.

All Things Photo Podcast spotted the premature outing and captured a bunch of screenshots. I would not be surprised if a press release from canon came out later today.

So, what so we have there?

First is the price, and it is going to be $5,999, which is a bit lower than the usual $7,999 price point for 1Dxs when they are first broken into the market. This is a $2,000 change and not to be taken lightly, I wonder what it means on Canon’s strategy, maybe making the 1D line more accessible? maybe bringing in a bigger monster? time will tell.

Here are the leaked specs for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, page by page, followed by what seems to be the official images. What do you find most interesting.

* Variable (averaged) bit rate
File Size
  • Large: Approx. 20.0 Megapixels (5472 x 3648)
  • M1: Approx. 12.7 Megapixels (4368 x 2912)

Recording Functions
  • Standard
    • Recorded to the selected card.
  • Auto switch card
    • When the current card becomes full, the camera switches to the other card automatically.

  • Record to multiple
    • Both the CF card and CFast™ card record the same image at the same image recording quality (Also applies to RAW+JPEG).
Backup Recording N/A
File Numbering The following three types of file numbers can be set:
  • Continuous numbering
    • The numbering of captured images continues even after you replace the card.
  • Auto reset
    • When you replace the card, the numbering will be reset to start from 0001. If the new card already contains images, the numbering will continue from the last recorded image in the card.
  • Manual reset
  • Resets the file number to 0001, and creates a new folder automatically.
