Firstly let me please apologise for the delay on
this issue of Click magazine. We wanted to wait
for the exciting new DSLR announcement on 2
Feb 2016. The EOS 1DX Mk II was announced
this week as our brand new fl agship camera
and we’re understandably very proud of
the technological achievement this camera
At an astonishing 14 pictures per second, it
is the fastest general production DSLR ever
made - an absolute bonus for sports and action
photographers in almost all genres. Even though
it only has a two frame a second advantage over
its predecessor model, the chances of two more
pictures a second for any kind of high speed
action photography is of great interest indeed.
This camera also merges the 1DX and 1DC lines
by off ering 4K video recording as standard.
As this is an Olympic year, we can’t wait to
have it in the hands of the many sport shooters
travelling to Brazil later in the year. Suffi ce it
to say that there are a lot of subtle changes to
the Mk II that will be talked about in the next
few months - watch this space for a selection
of opinion pieces coming up on the benefi ts
of this beast.
We’re just putting the fi nal plans together right
now for our traditional Roadshows coming up
in April and May this year - I hope you’ll be as
excited as I am when you fi nd out the big changes
we have planned this time around. Suffi ce it to
say that you’ve never seen a Roadshow quite
like this one before and it is fi tting for our tenth
anniversary to shake things up a bit!
Until next time – keep “Click”ing away.
