Canon EOS-1D X Mark II to shoot 14fps in raw mode? [CW3]

canonlogoQuestionMark2

New tidbits about the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X Mark II emerged.

The EOS-1D X Mark II is said to shot a 14 fps burst in full raw mode. And it’s murmured it will do it with a 24MP sensor.

When set to its Continuous High Speed setting, the EOS-1D X does 12 fps with an 18MP sensor. Doing 14 fps at 24MP would be a great achievement for Canon, and a feature that will excite professional sport photographers.

The rumour says nothing about ISO range. The EOS-1D X has an ISO range of 100–51200 (up to 204800 in H2 mode), so I guess the 1D X Mark II will do at least 100-102400 (if not 100-204800), and who knows where it will go with the H2 mode).

The EOS-1D X Mark II will be Canon’s next great professional tool for sport and action photographers. It is still unclear when to expect the announcement. Most hints point to an announcement towards the end of 2015. The EOS-1D X Mark II will likely be announced before the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II, both expected in Q1 2016.

Review of the Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art Series – LensRentals

The Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art Series is an incredible lens, with incredible sharpness and the fastest f-stop available in a full frame zoom lens. That said, I was left still scratching my head as to why. To my knowledge, I don’t see a purpose for owning both a 24mm and 35mm, so this lens fixes a problem that many people don’t have. While the functionality of the lens is great, I can’t imagine people who already own a 35mm or 24mm interested in what this lens has to offer. But if you’re looking for a discounted price yet capable wide angle lens, and versatility beyond a 24mm or 35mm, the Sigma 24-35mm might be the lens for you

The camera body has good handling with a good size rubber hand grip, and along with weather sealing, the camera will be well suited to shooting in a variety of conditions where you wouldn’t normally want to be shooting.
