Long-time Canon user Vincent Laforet has been testing out the new Canon 1D X Mark II and is impressed with the results–both in terms of still photography and video.
“I came to call the 1DX the ‘king of the night’ for it’s incredible low light performance. It seems Canon has continued to push the envelope with this camera in that area and added quite a few significant features,” he writes. “The big question these days with any camera it seems is: is this a still camera or a video camera – given the wild moves towards motion that the industry has taken over the last several years. I’d say the 1D X MKII lives comfortably in both worlds right now.”
