The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II flagship full frame DSLR camera is claimed to feature 15+ stops of dynamic range, just like the Cinema EOS C300 Mark II, probably at the hardware level (in practice it should perform lower than 15 stops).
Dynamic Range is one aspect of a camera’s performance. Of course there is more to a camera as a whole than just this one figure. But for many cinematographers a high dynamic range is an important attribute of a camera sensor. And the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is rumored to feature a newly developed 22MP full frame sensor. And it will be announced in February/March 2016, probably at CP+ Show in Japan.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is scheduled to be priced at $5999, it may change slightly when it at the time of the announcement, but it will be cheaper than the Nikon D5 ($6,496).
Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Rumored Features:
- New 22mp full frame Canon sensor
- 80+ AF Points
- New processor technology
- 14+ stops of dynamic range
- Nearly 15fps
- 4K video (max frame rate unknown)
- Dual CFast
- Slightly larger LCD
- To be Announced in February/March, shipping in April.
