BVE 2016: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, New 18-135mm EF-S Lens with Servo and Canon ME20F-SH 4 Million ISO Camera!

We kicked-off our BVE 2016 coverage over at the Canon stand by taking a look at their latest Canon 1D X Mark II flagship DSLR camera, which can now shoot in 4K resolution up to 60fps - a first for any DSLR in the world!

The EOS-1D X Mark II is a full-frame 35mm DSLR with a brand new 20.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which features the same MotionJPEG codec as the EOS-1D C camera, but this time around the camera uses Cfast 2.0 cards in addition to a Compact Flash slot.

Full HD slow-motion up to 120fps is also a key feature that a lot of filmmakers will love. Learn more about the EOS-1D X Mark II from our video from the show floor below:

At the show floor, Canon also had their unique ME20F-SH camera, which can go up to the staggering 4 Million ISO, while still giving you a picture in colour! This unique camera features a full-frame sensor with extremely large light-gathering photosites, which give the cameras' monstrous sensitivity.


This camera will score very high on any wildlife cameraman's checklist as the camera's main applications would be to capture nature in all its beauty that we would normally not be able to see with other existing capture technology.
