Canon is once again rumored to put a faster burst mode into the EOS 1D X Mark II and it seems like the DSLR will be able to capture up to 14fps of RAW shots.
Although the future Canon DSLR flagship is being constantly mentioned within the rumor mill and some sources are reporting that the EOS 1D X Mark II is coming soon, there is little proof that the camera will be introduced in the very near future.
New details about the device have appeared online. However, they are only tidbits and this does not happen when a camera is close to its launch event. Anyway, the latest information about the EOS 1D X Mark II is stating that the DSLR will feature a 24-megapixel full frame sensor and will be able to shoot up to 14fps in continuous shooting mode.
Canon’s EOS 1D X Mark II rumored to shoot 14 RAW photos in burst mode
Since the inception of EOS 1D X Mark II rumors, sources have been stating that Canon will put a higher-resolution and faster frame rate into the DSLR.
There were some shy gossips stating that the sensor will have 18 megapixels and that the frame rate will remain at 12fps, just like in its predecessor, but it seems like the reports were false.
As stated above, the 1D X shoots 12fps with a 18-megapixel sensor. Gaining 2fps from 6 more megapixels is a major improvements, however, it is all likely due to the dual DIGIC 7 processors that are believed to be added into the DSLR.
This speed improvement will be appreciated by action and sports photographers who will be present at major sporting events in 2016, such as the 2016 Summer Olympics. It remains to be seen whether the rumors are true or false.
LCD improvement mentioned again by the rumor mill
Meanwhile, the same source has confirmed another previous report. The EOS 1D X Mark II is said to employ a newer and better LCD screen than its forerunner.
There are no clear details about this, but speculation is pointing at a bigger size and higher-resolution when compared to the 3.2-inch 1.04-million dot display in the EOS 1D X.
We are still trying to find out a more specific announcement date for Canon’s upcoming flagship, but you will still have to stay tuned a little longer for this.
The Canon 1D X has had another price drop in recent times and now it is available for only $4,599 at Amazon.
