Bringing the shooting speed and video capabilities required by professional multimedia image-makers, the EOS-1D X Mark II is the flagship model within Canon's DSLR lineup, and is characterized by its robust processing capabilities and ability to enable a high-end multimedia workflow. At the heart of the imaging system is a full-frame 20.2MP CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, which contribute to fast continuous shooting rates up to 16 fps in live view, 14 fps with full-time AF and AE, and an expanded sensitivity range from ISO 50-409600. The sensor and processor combination also avails DCI 4K video recording at 60 fps and Full HD 1080p recording at 120 fps, along with the ability to record on-board to a CFast 2.0 memory card, or uncompressed Full HD video can be saved via HDMI to an optional external recorder. Benefitting stills shooting is an apt 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system, which includes 41 cross-type points for a high degree of precision in varying light conditions, and video shooting is enhanced by Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which makes its first appearance in a full-frame sensor for smooth, quick, and controllable AF in live view. With a versatile set of imaging traits, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II takes its place as a high-performance tool for professional photographers and videographers alike.

Is there a reason to buy this over the sony a1 if I am not already invested in canon gear? I do bird, wildlife and landscape, family.
Asked by: Billy
Canon EF lenses can be adapted to a Sony A1 but performance would be limited. I would recommend the Canon R5 instead: And you can adapt your lenses seamlessly with this adapter: The Canon R5 can shoot up to 20fps at the full 45mp resolution.

For video, how is the Autofocus when not using Canon glass? Sigma Art for example?
Asked by: Jp
Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is designed to work with native Canon lenses. Third party lenses may still work with the system, but it will vary on a lens by lens basis.

Are there any cons to shooting with only a CompactFlash card and not a CFast card?
Asked by: Laura G.
For Photos not really... unless your shooting burst mode shooting 14-16 FPS in RAW. The CFast Card will allow you to shoot at that setting for 170 shots per burst which is awesome if you're a sports photographer or want to make other photographers drool at an airshow. For Video... You NEED the CFast card if you plan on shooting anything other than 1080p up to 60fps. The reason I say NEED is because in 4K or 1080 @120 fps the files are ginormous and transferring the files over via Compact Flash takes forever. The other reason is that, in 4K, a compact flash will cut your files up every 15 sec it seems were a CFast 2.0 will just give you one long file. Although you can record 120fps onto Compact Flash cards, you're limited to 10-sec clips. If you require longer clips at that high frame rate, get a CFast. Full disclosure: CFast 2.0 Cards are my LEAST favorite thing to buy, and I feel your pain - so I wouldn't recommend one if it wasn't necessary. You chose the 1DX MKII for a reason - If you want to use this camera to its fullest potential, bite the bullet, wait for a sale, and get at least the 256GB. I made the mistake of only buying the 64GB version and found out during a shoot that only equates to 15 min of 4K footage... so pretty useless.

Any information available regarding HDR capabilities of the 1DxMkII? Video or Stills
Asked by: JAMES M. H.
Unfortuantely, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR camera does not have built-in automatic High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities in-camera. However, the camera does have Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) capabilities, as indicated on page 243-244 of the camera's instruction manual. The camera brackets the exposure up to 3 stops in 1/3-stop increments for three successive shots. You may use the AEB function to create three images in succession, then use software like Adobe Lightroom Photomatix Pro, Aurora HDR, or Canon's own Digital Photo Professional software (included with the camera) to combine the images to create your own HDR images.

As this camera has not been released yet, this information is not yet available. I would recommend checking user review sites such as DPReview when this information becomes more readily accessible.
