An update to the tremendously popular EOS-1Ds, the new EOS-1Ds Mark II is a must-have for those seeking to capture huge, beautiful images, fast. With an all-new, full-frame 16.7-megapixel CMOS image sensor, combined with Canon's blazing DIGIC II image processor, the EOS-1Ds Mark II captures up to 32 consecutive shots at speeds up to four frames per second and features dramatically decreased startup and card-writing times compared to the EOS-1Ds. These improvements are complemented by Canon's renowned build quality for reliability in even the most rugged conditions. Compatibility with over 50 EF lenses as well as the entire line of EOS accessories, including the new WFT E-1 Wireless File Transmitter, easily makes the EOS-1Ds Mark II the most remarkable combination of resolution and speed in the history of digital SLRs.
16.7-MEGAPIXEL 35mm FULL-SIZE CMOS SENSOR: Originally developed by Canon, this new super-high resolution CMOS sensor features a record-breaking 16.7 million effective pixels, which translates to a maximum image resolution of 4,992 x 3,328 pixels. Since the sensor's imaging area is the same size as in full-frame 35mm SLRs (24 x 36mm), all of Canon's professional EF lenses (except EF-S lenses) work the same as on 35mm film cameras, with exactly the same coverage. This is true even for wide angle models. From smooth gradations and wide ISO speed range to effective suppression of noise and false colors, this sensor meets the highest expectations of the most demanding professionals.
