- Product InformationWhether you are an amateur or professional photographer, if you need a workhorse camera, the black Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II 16.7 megapixel digital SLR camera body is your solution. Featuring 16.7 MP, the camera lets you enlarge and crop your photos to create the composition you want while giving you the option to create crisp, clear, and vibrant large-scale prints. The 2-inch LCD monitor lets you share snaps instantly, and a rechargeable NiMH battery lasts while you shoot at length. The full-size, 18-millimeter lens means no field-of-view cropping. With the two memory slots, choose the amount of storage you need. Add your favorite compatible lenses for a great addition to your camera kit.The 2.7-pound Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II has some great specs to take your photography to a new level. An ISO range of 100-1600, four frames per second continuous shooting, powerful 45-point autofocus, and a 1.0x full-frame, 35-millimeter sensor are just a few. The viewfinder offers a 100 percent view. It also has USB 1.1 for direct printing and a 100mbps Firewire connection. The 16 megapixels produce billboard-quality photo resolution. The shutter mechanism is designed to last for at least 200,000 activations and operate at a minimum of 30 seconds and a maximum of 1/8000 seconds. The EOS 1Ds Mark II turns on in less than a second. Compact flash and SD memory cards are used at the same time to save your photo files. Use the three-color histogram analysis to find blown out channels and adjust accordingly.

The updated flash metering system from Canon called E-TTL II adds a smart aspect to automated flash mode. The system calculates distance information taken from the lens for perfect exposure and white balance on the first try. Sensors in the digital camera's body rotate images automatically for quicker processing. A customizable readout shows the ISO setting, file number, and shots remaining.

Love this camera, takes great images. Just make sure you read manual or see a instructional video, the controls and settings are not easy at first. I can't believe is 12 years old and still does the job.

Canon 1Dx Mark II
Fantastic camera. Exactly as described in the description. Still one of the best 'flagship ' Canon full frame cameras. Used at a wedding with great results. You should have a second battery as this model dosn't use any standard battery, of course it seams Canon changes design of battery for every model. The battery received with the camera would not hold a charge, probably the original for this used model. Otherwise the camera performed flawlessly.

This is a very good tuff DSLR. CMOS, Full frame, 16.1 MP. Beautiful image quality. Presentation size photos are perfect. I needed a good, long battery life camera for field use. Not a, "smart phone", telephone camera for girls ..

I own both the 1D Mark II and the 1D Mark II N. While they are very similar cameras, I prefer the newer menu options of the N version as well as the larger rear LCD display. I shoot mostly landscapes and I find that I really like the color and contrast I get when using auto white balance and the "Landscape" style option provided in the N versions menu. As simple as that sounds, I always seem to struggle to get the same results with the non-N Mark II camera. With the non-N camera I'm constantly tweaking color and contrast in post processing while the newer N version just seems to get it right the first time. Other than that, both cameras are fantastic tools. No camera could ever feel more solid in the hand and the sound of the shutter tells you you've truly got a professional tool in your hand. And unlike Nikon's older series cameras (D1 series) even the generic NI-MH batteries I buy on Ebay for about $23 each last a long, long time between charges. It's just incredible that today you can get a camera this good...that originally sold for more the $3,000...for so little. But don't let the low prices fool you. Both the Mark II and the Mark II N are incredible bargains. More importantly, they're incredible cameras. Read full review

Best DSLR for a reasonable price, period.
I have two of these outstanding cameras, and they're easily my favorite camera bodies, bar nothing. The only con for me is the low (for current tech as of 2015) ISO range, but 3200 with relatively low noise is more than enough for my purposes. If it gets too much darker, I'm taking out my 580 exii and 430 and doing some lighting of my own. The pros? Holy value for money! I was looking at basic consumer cameras with cheap kit lenses for about what I spent on a 1Ds Mark II with 8,000 shutter actuations (verified). I bought my first one for $700 shipped, and my second for $680 shipped, and I now proudly own two world class tough cameras! They are weather sealed, and RUGGED! I do alot of desert/mountain climbing and exploring and couldn't imagine a non-1 series canon surviving what I put them through. I consider the small LCD screen an asset instead of a limitation, I try to treat it like the mirror in my bathroom: it's a tool to check and make sure everything looks to be exposed decently once or twice, and then treat my shooting like I'm using film. I have found that I take better images and enjoy my photography vastly more this way than when I sit there and look at a big LCD screen and nit pick constantly while shooting. Might just be me, but if I had an LCD screen that only showed the histogram, I'd be a happy camper. To me a professional knows they composed a great shot! Anyway, The 1DS Mark II is my choice, and I'll keep using it until Mine are truly dead and no more are to be had. Read full review
