An update to the tremendously popular EOS-1Ds, the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II SLR Digital Camera is a must have for those seeking to capture huge, beautiful images, fast. With a 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 4 frames-per-second, and has dramatically decreased startup and card-writing times in comparison 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, in addition to the entire line of EOS accessories, including the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1 accessory easily makes the EOS-1Ds Mark II the most remarkable combination of resolution and speed in the history of digital SLRs.
