III. IMAGE QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS
Image quality improvements over the EOS-1D Mark II N are as follows: Higher resolution with 10.10 megapixels versus 8.2 Improved gradation with 14-bit A/D conversion and DIGIC III ISO 3200 now within the standard ISO setting range, thanks to an improved sensor signal-to-noise ratio and DIGIC III Noise reduction provided for high ISO speeds (C. Fn II -2-1) Noise prone to occur at high ISO speeds is reduced At low ISO speeds, noise in the shadow areas is further reduced Priority for highlight detail can be set (C. Fn II -3-1) Image detail from the grays to highlights is improved and loss of highlight detail is reduced
New 10.1 Megapixel Sensor
The EOS-1D Mark IIIs new, Canon-designed and manufactured, APS-H-size, CMOS single-plate sensor advances the state of the art in professional DSLR sensor design. APS-H is the largest sensor that can be imaged in one pass using cutting edge semiconductor manufacturing technology. The imaging area of the new CMOS sensor measures 28.1 x 18.7mm, appreciably larger than APS-C and 28.1mm about the same size as the sensors in the (Actual Size) EOS-1D Mark II and Mark II N. The lens magnification factor is 1.3x. Shadow noise at all comparable ISO speed settings is 50% less than with the EOS-1D Mark II N. The sensor features high-speed signal reading (approx. 10 fps), low power consumption, and Live View shooting.
Combining the superb image capture capabilities of the new sensor with advanced Dual DIGIC III Image Processors, the EOS-1D Mark III offers the widest ISO range of any DSLR in the world (as of February 2007). The standard range of 1003200 can be extended to a remarkable 506400.* More important, the low-noise performance at high ISO settings makes the entire range usable in real-world shooting situations.

The EOS-1D Mark III sensor has 10.1 effective megapixels, a 25% increase over the 8.2 megapixels of the EOS-1D Mark II. Individual pixel size on the 1D Mark IIIs sensor is 7.2m, the same size as the pixels of the EOS-1Ds Mark II.

Although the pixel size of the 1D Mark III is 1 micron smaller than the pixel size of the EOS-1D Mark II and Mark II N, the photodiode size of both sensors is the same, thanks to the optimized photodiode construction and more sophisticated processing of the 1D Mark III. By optimizing the gap between the on-chip microlenses and improving the fill factor (photodiode area divided by total pixel size) of each pixel, light-gathering efficiency has been improved. Also, by optimizing the photodiode's structure, light-reception efficiency has been improved. Additionally, the second-generation, on-chip noise removal circuit and the noise reduction technology explained below combine to remove noise effectively. This has enabled the EOS-1D Mark III to be the first EOS DSLR camera to have ISO 3200 as part of its standard ISO speed range. Dynamic range at low ISO speeds is about the same with the 1D Mark III as it is with the EOS-1D Mark II and Mark II N despite the 1D Mark IIIs increased resolution. A second-generation, on-chip, noise-reduction circuit is provided. To achieve even less

noise, the EOS-1D Mark III has a new feed-through output amp that attains both high speed and low noise. Low noise is also achieved with an improved manufacturing process, an optimized pixel amp and an optimized reading circuit. As with the EOS-1D Mark II N, single-line, 8-channel reading is employed. With a faster output amp and optimized read circuit, a continuous shooting speed of approximately 10 fps is attained.
To minimize the higher power consumption required by the faster signal reading, the output amp's power consumption has been reduced. Also, as in the EOS-1D Mark II N, during long exposures, power to the output amp is turned off and the standard current driving the circuit is also cut off to save power. In addition, during Live View shooting, the power distribution for the signal-reading operation is optimized for more pinpoint power-saving control. Previously, in front of the sensor, there was an infrared-absorption glass integrated with a three-layer, optical crystal plate for point image separation. However, for the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit, the infrared-absorption glass is now separate from the three-layer, optical crystal plate. This makes the dust-shaking plate lighter, saving power and making it easier to control.
Dichroic mirror (Reflects infrared rays)
The infrared filter has a hybrid construction; it has an infraredabsorption glass with multiple coatings to reflect infrared and ultraviolet rays, the same construction found in EOS-1D series cameras. It effectively reduces red fringing and color casts caused by reflections of the sensor surface. The low-pass filter for point image separation has a phase plate (which converts linear polarization to circular polarization) sandwiched by two single crystal plates. It is optimized for the sensor pitch so the light flux is separated into the horizontal and vertical directions and the fine horizontal- and vertical-line patterns are cleanly separated, effectively reducing color artifacts such as moir.

DIGIC II, a high-performance imaging engine that has been used since the EOS-1D Mark II in 2004, has been a major feature of Canon digital cameras because of its very fine image detail, natural color reproduction and high-speed signal processing. DIGIC III retains the DIGIC II's basic concept and improves upon it with higher performance and faster speed. To cope with the voluminous signal processing required by the EOS-1D Mark IIIs 10.10 megapixels and top continuous shooting speed of 10 fps, Dual DIGIC III Image Processors are incorporated for parallel signal processing. The CMOS sensor reads out to the dual DIGIC III Image Processors simultaneously in 8 channels.
By having 2 processors handle the workload, image processing is now approximately 1.5x faster; Compact Flash access speed is now 1.3x faster, and SD card access is now 2x faster compared to the EOS-1D Mark II N. The extra power of Dual DIGIC III Image Processors has also allowed analog-to-digital conversion to improve from 12 to 14 bits per channel, meaning that tonal gradation for RAW images is now divided into 16,384 separate levels per channel rather than 4,096. When saved as a 16-bit TIFF image, the image retains the full range of tones obtained with 14 bits. Also, JPEG images, at 8 bits per color, are generated from the 14-bit data. Tonal skipping is thereby reduced substantially, improving gradation and overall image quality.

Noise reduction for long exposures is equivalent to that on the EOS-1D Mark II N. When [C. Fn II-1; 1: Auto] is set, 1 sec. and longer exposures will undergo noise reduction automatically, depending on the amount of noise detected in the image data. If [C. Fn II-1; 2: On] is set, all 1 sec. and longer exposures will undergo noise reduction. Now, noise reduction for pictures taken at a high ISO speed is provided via [C. Fn II-2]. Although this feature works at all ISO speeds, it is especially effective for high ISO speeds. At low ISO speeds, noise reduction is not really necessary. However, applying noise reduction can reduce noise within shadow areas taken under low light.

The 18 cross-type AF points other than the center AF point detect vertical lines at f/2.8 and horizontal lines at f/5.6. If the maximum aperture of the lens or lens/extender combination in use is f/2.8 or larger, high-precision, cross-type focusing is possible. Also, if the maximum aperture of the lens or lens/extender combination in use is f/5.6 or larger, horizontal-line sensitive AF is possible. The Assist AF sensors are horizontal-line sensitive at f/5.6. They have the same focusing detection performance as the EOS-1D Mark II's AF points (other than that cameras seven cross-type sensors). The EOS 5D's Assist AF points operate AF Sensor only during AI Servo AF when the camera is set for automatic AF point selection or the center AF point is manually selected and focusing point expansion is activated. However, with the EOS-1D Mark III, the Assist AF points now also operate during One-Shot AF when the camera is set for automatic AF point selection, or when any cross-type focusing point is manually selected and focusing point expansion is activated. The Assist AF points achieving focus also light up with the SI display. While the high-precision, cross-type AF points have substantial coverage in the Area AF, the center AF point can use cross-type focusing with f/4 and faster lenses and still can focus with f/8 lenses. The AF operation certainly befits an EOS-1D series camera. For lowlight focusing, to the EOS-1D Mark III is twice as sensitive as the EOS-1D Mark II N. The CMOS AF sensor's pixel sensitivity has been improved, thanks to improved pixel characteristics, an improved pixel fill factor due to finer semiconductor manufacturing processes, and optimized pixel size. As a result, the 1D Mark IIIs AF sensitivity has been improved to EV -1 through EV 18 (at 23C/73F, ISO 100).
As with previous EOS cameras, the TTL-SIR (Through-the-Lens Secondary Image Registration) focusing principle is employed. The light flux passes through the camera lens and passes through the half mirror at the center of the main mirror. The light flux proceeds downward by reflecting off the oblong, concave secondary mirror to a fully reflective mirror in the base of the cameras mirror chamber. Then it passes through an infrared- absorption glass, a secondary image-forming lens, and a cover glass before reaching the AF sensor. The AF unit uses materials having minimal swelling and moisture absorption characteristics, and the secondary image-forming lens is made of glass mold highly resistant to changes in size due to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The AF unit is therefore very stable.
more precise. At the standard setting, the subject tracking sensitivity level is the same as with the 1D Mark II N. Once an AF point starts tracking the subject, the tracking response is impressive. (Subject-tracking sensitivity can be adjusted with C. Fn III 2, Slow to Fast, -2 to +2.) Even if AI Servo AF is used to focus on a still subject, stable control is enabled so that the lens drive isnt constantly fine-tuning. If the subject starts to move, the focusing responds immediately to detect the subject constantly.
Automatic AF Point Selection
The high detection-sensitive, cross-type AF points are now spread out over the Area AF. When One-Shot AF is combined with automatic focusing point selection, as with the EOS 5D and 30D, the selection of the Area AF's bottom AF points is eliminated. From among the remaining AF points, the AF point on the closest subject is set to be the main AF point. This is a change from the Area AF of previous EOS-1D cameras where the main AF point was set at where the most AF points lit up. The concept of eliminating the selection of the least reliable AF points is the same as before. With the new algorithm, AF point selection becomes more stable and consistent even if the area of the main AF point is smaller. When AI Servo AF is combined with automatic focusing point selection, the EOS-1D Mark III's behavior is the same as previous EOS-1D class cameras, where the subject is initially acquired by center focusing point and subsequently tracked by all 45 points as necessary.
AF Point Expansion
AF expansion with a manually selected focusing selected point, C. Fn III 8, differs from the EOS-1D Mark II N's settings. Depending on the AF mode (One-Shot AF or AI Servo AF) and focal distance, the AF point area does not change. With setting 1 (Enable left/right assist points), the expanded area (on the left and right of the manually-selected AF point) is enabled at all times. With setting 2 (Enable surrounding assist points), the expanded area is enabled by one point all around the selected AF point.
C.Fn III -8-1
With One-Shot AF, when focus is achieved with an Assist AF point, the Assist AF point will light up via the SI display. With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected AF point and Assist AF point will not be displayed.

AF precision is adjusted for the camera and lens to fall within the lens' maximum aperture's depth of focus. However, there are users who want to adjust it more minutely. They have had to go to a Canon Service Center to have it done. AF micro-adjustment is a feature developed for these users. C.Fn III-7 The user himself can now finely adjust the AF focusing position. The adjustment range is 20 steps in front of (-) or behind (+) the point of focus.
The adjustment increment of one step differs depending on the maximum aperture of the lens. You should shoot, check the focus, and adjust it. Repeat this procedure to adjust the point of focus. When a lens registered with a point-of-focus adjustment is attached, the point of focus will be automatically shifted by the correction amount set. If you set 1 (Adjust all lenses by the same amount) or 2 (Adjust by lens) and press the INFO button, the adjustment screen will appear. The focus shift amount per step is calculated by multiplying the maximum aperture's single-side depth of focus by 1/8. If 1 is set, the focus shift amount will always be the same number of steps (but the actual amount will vary according to maximum aperture) for all lenses. If 2 is set, the focus shift amount will change for each different lens. You can register the focusing shift amount for up to 20 lenses. Then, when you use one of the registered lenses, the focus will shift by the set amount.
Adjust all lenses by same amount
Adjust individually for each lens
Note that since the camera does not recognize the unique ID of the lens, the same shift amount will be applied to the same lens model even if it has a different serial number. In the case of zoom lenses which have variable maximum apertures, the focus shift amount is technically different at the wide-angle end and telephoto end. However, since the focus shift amount cannot be adjusted individually for the wide and telephoto ends (there is only one shift amount per lens), adjusting it for the telephoto end is better. If an extender can be attached, the camera recognizes whether it is 1.4x or 2x and makes a different shift adjustment from when no extender is attached. When an extender is attached, the adjustment screen will display the lens name and extender name. To delete the registered lens settings, select 1 or 2, then press the Erase button. All the registered AF micro-adjustment settings will be cleared.
When the 580EX II, 430EX, 220EX, or ST-E2 is attached to the camera, an AF-assist beam linked to the AF point can be emitted automatically whether AF point selection is automatic or manual. This will help the camera to focus. With other EOS-dedicated Speedlites, the AF-assist beam might not align with the selected AF point.
Dimensions and Weight
The dimensions of the EOS-1D Mark III are (W x H x D): 156 x 156.6 x 79.9 mm/6.1 x 6.2 x 3.1 inches. The weight is 1155 g/40.7 oz. (body only, no battery, no memory cards), 1335 g/47.1 oz. (with battery). Compared to the EOS-1D Mark II N, the height is 1 mm shorter; the body-only weight is a significant 70 g/2.5 oz. lighter, and the weight with battery is a remarkable 225 g/7.9 oz. lighter. The LP-E4 battery of the EOS-1D Mark III weighs 180 g/6.3 oz.; the NP-E3 Weight Image-recording Quality Body Only With Battery weighs 335 g/11.8 oz.

Because of its lightweight and strength, magnesium alloy is used for the top, front, and rear covers as well as for the memory card slot covers. The chassis and mirror box are also made of magnesium alloy (instead of the EOS-1D Mark II N's aluminum die cast) to make the body very strong, rigid, and light. The magnesium alloy also works as an electromagnetic shield. Except for its deeper black color, the paint finish on the exterior covers is the same as the 1D Mark II N's. It is highly durable, allowing minimal wear even under harsh conditions.
To equal the legendarily excellent water- and dust-resistant construction of the EOS-1D Mark II N, measures are incorporated at 76 places around the camera controls and along cover seams. Also, O-rings are used on the memory card slot covers and the battery compartment, and silicon rubber is employed around the top and rear covers and buttons where the user can see it and feel reassured. The EOS-1D Mark III's hot shoe is shaped to resist water with a rib around its perimeter. When the Speedlite 580EX II is attached, water resistance is maintained. When a water-resistant EF lens is attached to the camera, the entire camera-and-lens outfit will be water-resistant. Location of major water-resistant measures
The main electronic boards are the imaging-control board, digital-control board, cameracontrol board, display-control board, and power supply board.

While based on the EOS-1D Mark II N's shutter unit, the EOS-1D Mark III's shutter unit has been improved to increase durability and to reduce the generation of dust. It is now rated for 300,000 shutter cycles. (The 1D Mark II Ns shutter unit durability rating is 200,000 cycles.) To attain this level of ruggedness, surface finish Shutter unit and heating processes in manufacturing have been changed for specific highly durable parts. To increase stability and shutter precision, a photo reflector (PR) is newly employed to detect the slit-passing time. For the X-sync contact, the mechanical contact has been eliminated to prevent contact scorching and wear.

The Ec-C IV focusing screen is a Laser Matte unit whose molding method has been improved over the previous Ec-C III focusing screen's. It makes it easier to focus and provides natural-looking background blur (bokeh). It is also brighter and less grainy, making it a very well-balanced focusing screen. With the improved molding method, image transfer is better. The dispersion characteristic is improved, and the screen is brighter with minimal flare. The fresnel lens area is especially improved for image transfer, increasing the peripheral brightness and making the screen look clearer overall. Compared to the EOS-1D Mark II N's Ec-C III standard focusing screen, the Ec-C IV is brighter, less grainy, and better balanced. The EOS-1D Mark III is compatible with all Ec focusing screens used by EOS-1 series cameras. Since the eyepiece frame now has a different shape to accommodate the bigger eyepiece lens, viewfinder accessories dedicated to the EOS-1D Mark III have been developed at the same time: Eyecup Eg, Dioptric Adjustment Lenses Eg (7 types: -4, -3, -2, 0, Eyecup Eg +1, +2, +3), and Anti-fog Eyepiece Eg. Note that the old EOS-1 viewfinder accessories Eyecup Ec-II, Rubber Frame Ec, and Anti-fog Eyepiece Ec are not interchangeable with the Eg-series accessories. The newly-developed, standard Eyecup Eg has an improved mount for attaching it to the eyepiece. It is now less prone to detach inadvertently compared to the old eyecup.
The Main Dial is used to select the menu tab; the Quick Control Dial is used to select the menu option (each tabbed menu does not require vertical scrolling). Then, the SET button is pressed to register the setting. This ease of operation is new. (With the EOS 5D and 30D, the Quick Control Dial is used to scroll. With the EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D Digital, the Cross keys are used to select the tab and menu option. This operation method makes it quick and easy to find and set the menu option from among the many menus organized under nine tabs (Shooting 1 & 2, Playback 1 & 2, Set-up 1, 2, & 3, Custom Functions, and My Menu). All the menu items are visible on one screen. Also, the tab design has been changed to make it easier to distinguish; it also becomes bigger when selected. With the Multi-Controller, only the menu tab and first layer of menu options can be selected. Pressing the center does not set anything. It also does not work with the second layer of menu options and beyond. On one screen, up to 7 menu options can be displayed. This is one fewer than the 8 items the EOS-1D Mark II N's screen can show. However, together with the bigger 3.0-inch screen, the EOS-1D Mark III's menus are easier to read.
Playback and Display Options
There are four display options: 1. Single image 2. Single image + Image size 3. Shooting information 4. Histogram (1. Brightness, 2. RGB) Each time you press the INFO button, the display changes in this sequence. With the EOS-1D Mark III, display options 2 and 4 are new. You can also set the display for highlight warning (highlight areas with no image will blink) and AF point.

For images shot with the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2A + GPS, the GPS information (longitude, latitude, altitude, UTC) will be displayed below the histogram. With the WFT-E2A + external media, images recorded in the CF/SD card can also be backed up to external media. During single image playback, you can press the Reduce button to display the 4-image index or 9-image index.
4-image index 9-image index
Unlike the EOS 5D, 30D, and EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D Digital, the image jump setting is done with the menu. With the [Image jump with Main Dial] menu, you can choose to jump through the images by 1, 10, or 100 images. Alternately, you can jump by one screen, the shooting date, or folder. When you turn the Main Dial during image playback, you can jump through the images according to your menu setting. For continuous shooting, only the last image taken will be displayed. During automatic image review, you can protect Jump display the image, delete the image, or record sound.
During single image playback or INFO display, press the Magnify button to magnify the image. When you hold down the Magnify/Reduce button, you can zoom in or out between 1.5x and 10x in 15 steps. By turning the Quick Control Dial during the magnified view, you can view another image at the same magnified position. With the [Enlarge display] menu, you can also start the magnified view from a manually selected AF point, as you can with the EOS-1D Mark II N. The choice is [Enlarge from image center] or [Enlarge from selected AF point].
With the menu, you can now also erase, protect or cancel an individual image.
Press the SET button to rotate the image by 90, 270, or 0 (in this sequence). Rotated display can be set for 1. Manual, or 2. Auto rotate. On the menu screen, you can now checkmark each image you want to erase, then erase all of them at once. Erasing all images must now be done with the menu to prevent accidental erasure. (Erasing all images cannot be done during image playback.)
During image playback, you can press the Protect/Record button for 2 sec. to record sound up to 30 sec. long. While the camera is ready to shoot, you can press the INFO button to display the camera settings on the LCD monitor (the same as with the EOS 5D). You can also display the shooting settings (C. Fn II -9-1) as displayed on the LCD panel and in the viewfinder. If an error occurs, the LCD monitor displays the error number and the description. Video output is compatible with NTSC and PAL depending on the video OUT terminal.

The Canon EOS-1D Mark II N Digital SLR is both the successor to, and a thorough reconsideration of, the EOS-1D Mark II camera. It preserves the speed, responsiveness, image quality and reliability of the EOS-1D Mark II model while incorporating newly refined features that make the camera easier to use and more precise. The N model inherits the mantle of worlds fastest digital SLR, firing at 8.5 fps for up to 48 fullresolution JPEGs in a burst (vs. the same firing rate and a 40 JPEG burst for the 1D Mark II camera). It retains the superb 8.2 megapixel CMOS Sensor of the 1D Mark II camera, with its convenient 1.3x lens conversion factor, and continues to use the DIGIC II Image Processor for outstanding image quality. The EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR shares with the 1 Series family its all-metal body and chassis and weather-resistant construction, and its shutter is still durability-tested to 200,000 exposures. The new 2.5 inch, wide-angle view LCD/TFT screen brings with it larger, easier-to-see text in 15 languages. Picture Style makes image control easier. ISO speed changes, memory card selection and new folder creation have all been simplified. The optional Ec-S screen makes manual focusing easier. More burst frames are now possible and burst speed settings are more flexible. Info display is more complete. Many menus can now be accessed during image recording. Several improvements to magnified view make focus checking easier. Last displayed image view makes image review easier and less stressful. User-settable file names make it easier to identify and index ones work. Automatic noise reduction eliminates uncertainty from low-light photography. Enhanced printing functions will make keeping track of images easier. The result is a superb professional photographic instrument. The estimated selling price of the new camera, $3,999 , is actually $500 less than the initial price of its predecessor. This aggressive pricing makes the EOS-1D Mark II N camera a terrific deal. Photographers upgrading from older or less robust equipment, or from film, will see that the N model is the clear choice in all-around professional performance. The great success of the cameras predecessors is on display at any sporting event where legions of white L Series lenses mark Canon as the overwhelming preference of

III. DESIGN FEATURES
A. Improved Image Playback Functions
New LCD Screen The EOS-1D Mark II N camera has a new, 2.5 inch LCD/ TFT screen with 230,000 pixels. Its area is more than 50% larger than a 2.0 inch screen. Its backlight, with six LED modules, is brighter. Examining photographed images, checking focus and selecting menu items are now all easier. The improved display enables viewing angles up to a remarkable 170 degrees from any direction.
Magnified View From Any AF Point
Sharing the stage with the new, 2.5 inch LCD wide-angle view display are five significant improvements to image playback. First, one can have magnified view from any selected AF point. Previously, magnified views took the center of the image as the starting point. If the selected AF point was not in the center, one had to scroll around the image, an awkward and time-consuming process. Now, a menu item, [Enlarge from selected AF point],
Enlarge display setting screen
enables the user to magnify the image and check focus in a single operation: the press of one button. Magnification starts at approximately 100% and ranges in 15 steps from 1.5x to 10x, the same as the EOS-1D Mark II camera.
Magnified View During Quick Review
Next, magnified view during Quick Review is enabled. This means that, when an image is displayed on the LCD screen immediately after capture, magnified view in 15 steps is now possible, speeding and simplifying focus checking, as well as reducing the time until the next shot can be taken.
1. Quick Review image appears after the shot is taken.
2. Hold down the <Magnified> button and press the <Magnify> button to magnify the image.
Last Displayed Image Remembered and Improved Magnified Images
Third, increased internal memory capacity has improved image quality in Magnified view. Improved memory function has also made it possible for the EOS-1D Mark II N camera to remember the last displayed image. Previously, when the user resumed image playback after clearing the display by pressing the shutter button or AE lock button, the image shown was the last one shot, a particular inconvenience when checking large numbers of images. Now, when playback is resumed after stopping, the specification has been revised so that the most recently displayed image reappears.
More Complete INFO Display
Last, the information display now shows file sizes and includes notations for monochrome (B/W) and R/G/B when the RGB histogram is enabled. File size has become a critical piece of data with the practical limitations imposed by the widespread adoption of wireless networks (enabled by transmitters such as the Canon WFT-E1A) for image transfer. The indications of monochrome and RGB are an aid to photographers who are fully or partially color blind. Additionally, it is now easier to distinguish between actual monochrome images and those with a limited palette that appear to be monochrome.
B. Improved Image Recording Performance
More Burst Frames An improved image processing sequence and an improved memory management method have made more burst frames possible. The RAW burst is now 22 frames; RAW+JPEG is approximately 19 frames (JPEG quality: 8, Picture Style: Standard, ISO 100); JPEG large is 48 or better; JPEG Medium 1 is 59 or better; JPEG Medium 2 is 77 or better, and JPEG Small has increased substantially to 135 or better. Professional users in particular will appreciate the extra margin of comfort that greater burst performance provides.
New Split Recording for RAW+JPEG
As with the EOS-1D Mark II model, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR allows the user to save the same image simultaneously in both memory cards, slot 1 and slot 2, a highly effective backup mechanism. Also, one can record to slot 1 until it is full, going on to slot 2 as a reserve. Now, with the EOS-1D Mark II N camera in RAW+JPEG mode, it is also possible to save the RAW and JPEG images separately in each memory card. The RAW images can be saved in slot 1 and the JPEGs, in any of ten quality levels, in slot 2, or vice versa. Because CF cards tend to be larger, currently, than SD cards, the RAW files will be likelier to go on the CF card in slot 1, but this is not a requirement. The new option allows images to be recorded separately according to usage, finally realizing a great potential benefit of the dual slot configuration.
STEP 1 STEP 2

New Simple Recording Slot Switching
Canon has made a substantial improvement in the way switching between the two card slots is accomplished. On the EOS-1D Mark II, one had to press the Display button and turn the Quick Control Dial to select the folder mode before the card slot selection screen appeared. Holding down the Select memory card button and turning the Quick Control Dial selected the memory card, a less-than-intuitive procedure. The memory card selection button of the EOS-1D Mark II N camera accesses the selection screen directly, a simple and stress-free process.
Automatic New Folder Creation
On the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR, when image file number 9999 is reached, a new folder is started automatically and the file number starts from 0001. On current 1D models, a dialog box appears at file number 9999 asking the user whether to create a new folder or not, interrupting shooting and causing a distraction. Also currently, if there is a DCIM folder on the memory card being used, the last file number stored in that folder is rejected. The user must then perform a forced reset in advance to reset the file number to 0001. Now, the user can concentrate on shooting without having to worry about folders or file numbers.
User-settable File Names
The user can now decide the file names first four alphanumeric characters followed by the cameras fixed characters. File names are entered on the cameras rear LCD screen using the Quick Control Dial and the Select button. This procedure replaces the current system of unchangeable file names consisting of four random, camera-specific, alpha- numeric characters set at shipment from the factory plus a file number. Now, users can clearly identify themselves as the sender when images are transferred during or immediately after an event. The new system also improves the ease of searching for file names.
Automatic Noise Reduction for Long Exposures
On the menus Noise reduction screen, a new option called Auto has been added. When Auto is enabled, the camera automatically detects the noise level for exposures one second or longer. If analysis indicates that noise reduction would be effective for that shot, it is applied. At present, it is difficult to judge whether or not an image is affected by noise. Users must compare two images, one with noise reduction enabled and one without it, and make a judgment based on their appearance on the LCD screen, a distinctly iffy proposition.
C. More Functional Improvements
Color tone Color Saturation Contrast Sharpness
The EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR uses Canons new Picture Style function for easy control of image characteristics, similar to the way one chose a film to match ones visual intent in the past. Picture Style represents a reorganization of the processing parameters used in previous EOS DSLRs. The six Picture Styles provided are: Standard (standard snapshot characteristics, same as Digital Rebel series Parameter 1), Portrait (softer and more natural skin tones), Landscape (vivid blues and greens, enhanced
Picture Style screen
sharpness), Neutral (natural color reproduction with settings that stress image elements, intended for post-processing, same parameters as the EOS-1D series), Faithful (color reproduction that colorimetrically matches the original as closely as possible, also intended for post-processing) and Monochrome (same as on the EOS 20D camera, and the first time this feature has appeared on an EOS-1 class digital SLR). The first five have adjustable preset settings for Sharpness, Contrast, Color tone and Saturation. Monochrome has adjustable preset settings for Sharpness, Contrast, Filter effect and Toning effect. In addition, there are three user-defined Picture Styles, providing extensive custom control.
New Ec-S Focusing Screen
For the many professional photographers who prefer to focus manually in certain situations, Canon has devised an optional new focusing screen that uses the precision matte technology first seen on the EOS 20D camera. Optimized for lenses with maximum apertures of f/2.8 and brighter, the Ec-S has a steeper parabola of focus than the standard screen, the New Laser Matte Magnified photo of screen Ec-CIII. The Ec-Ss newly shaped microlens causes the defocus bokeh characteristic near the point of focus to be more pronounced. The point of sharpest focus has more snap, making it easier and faster to find. Note that the Ec-S screen is not recommended for use with lenses slower than f/2.8. Also, because the Ec-S screen requires a new setting for C.Fn-00, it is not currently
compatible with existing cameras. Canon is reviewing the possibility of providing a firmware update for earlier EOS-1 class DSLRs.
ISO Set Through Finder
ISO speed and ISO bracketing can now be set while looking through the viewfinder rather than taking ones eye away from the finder to look at the top LCD panel. The risk of missing a photo opportunity is reduced.
Reduced Startup Time
The improved system processing sequence and revised operations for camera startup have lowered startup time to an almost imperceptible 0.2 sec.
Enhanced Range of Settings for Continuous Shooting Speed
The EOS-1D Mark II N camera offers a choice of high-speed continuous shooting (H) ranging from 2 to 8.5 fps, and low speed continuous shooting (L) with settings from 1 to 7 fps. Access to these controls is through the new P.Fn 19, [Set continuous shooting speed]. There was no overlap in the EOS-1D Mark IIs settings; (H) was 4 to 8.5 fps and (L) was 1 to 3 fps. Professional photographers will appreciate both the new level of control and the greater range of (L) settings.
Access to Menu Options During Image Recording
The EOS-1D Mark II N camera offers the highly useful feature of permitting access to certain menu options while the camera is processing images and recording them on a memory card. During shooting, changes in [JPEG quality], [Color space], [Picture Style], [Photographed image review] and ISO expansion can be made, effective with the next shot. During playback, changes to [Highlight alert], [Display AF points], [Histogram display] and [Enlarged display set] will all be effective with the next image displayed. In addition, changes to these settings are applied immediately after being entered: [Auto Power Off] and [Auto rotate] from Setup menu 1, as well as [Language] and [Video system] from Setup menu 2.
New Custom Functions and Personal Function
C.Fn-13 adds [9/Center AF] point to [Number AF points/Spot metering]. This allows spot metering to remain at the center of the image, regardless of the focusing point selected from the nine available choices. C.Fn-00, setting 2 [Ec-S] is added to [Focusing screen] to support the new focusing screen. The new P.Fn-19 is very welcome because it now permits the selection of [High-speed continuous shooting]: 2-8 or [Low-speed continuous shooting]: 1-7. Finally, with P.Fn-25, [Picture Style] and [Color space] have been added to [Default settings when cleared].
Low Level Formatting of SD Cards
Low level formatting, or physical formatting, rewrites all of the recording medias sector information. Existing data is completely erased. In contrast, high level formatting, or logical formatting, is like erasing only the table of contents of a book. It may be possible in this case to recover data with third party software, an advantage or a disadvantage, depending upon circumstances. The EOS-1D Mark II N
Low-level formatting screen
camera has the Low Level Format feature already incorporated into Canon PowerShot cameras. When the SD card (Card 2) is selected on the card format screen, a checkbox to enable Low Level Format will appear. (Low Level Formatting is not possible with CF cards, so the checkbox does not appear in this case.) When it is selected, writing to the SD card will be faster and more secure, and permanent deletion of data will be executed.
D. Enhanced PictBridge Functions
New Contact Printing In 2004, primarily as a result of the introduction of the PIXMA brand (PIXUS brand in Japan) in the latter half of the year, unit sales expanded nearly 20% from the previous year. As a result, Canon showed excellent performance for the year, returning to the No. 1 position in the Japanese market for the first time in eight years. Canon has applied advances in its semiconductor production technologies to the nozzle manufacturing process, resulting in substantial improvements in printer performance. Software andhardware innovations are combining to make Canon printers work better than ever. For example, the compatibility of Canon PIXMA photo printers and Canon cameras has been extended so that, beginning with PictBridge compliant models introduced in the fall of 2005, useful new functions will be available. First, theres Contact Printing, featuring easy-to-see thumbnail images, with a simulated 35mm filmstrip background. Each frame measures 36mm x 24mm, exactly the size of contact prints made from 35mm film, in a five-rows-of-seven 35-image layout.
Two New Layouts With Exif Data
The second new option is a 20image layout with Exif shooting informationprinted next to each frame: camera model, lens model, extender usage, shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture setting, exposure compensation (not shown if no compensation is used), ISO, white balance, file
number and date. Either of these options offers a useful solution to the problem of archiving and retrieving digital images. A third new choice makes a single print with Exif information printed underneath.
Face Brightener, which makes dark, backlit faces brighter, is an effect that appeared originally in Easy-Photo-Print Ver. 3.0. It is now available, without a computer, in the new series of Canon PIXMA Photo Printers. It provides an easy way to correct for underexposure caused, in most cases, by backlighting of the subject.
With Face Brightener
New Paper Sizes
Three new paper sizes have been added: 4 x 8, 8 x 10 and 10 x 12. This enhancement is aimed at the growing group of professionals who may need to print directly from their cameras while on location, and is compatible with new paper sizes that are scheduled to be available for Canon PIXMA Photo Printers announced in the second half of 2005.
E. Continuation of the Key Elements of the EOS-1D Mark II
Worlds Fastest Autofocus Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera The EOS-1D Mark II N camera has the same top speed as the EOS-1D Mark II model. At 8.5 frames per second in One Shot AF/AI SERVO AF mode, it still boasts the worlds fastest continuous shooting speed for an AF DSLR.
The EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR has the same Canon-designed and -manufactured single-plate CMOS sensor as the EOS-1D Mark II. The sensor measures 28.7mm x 19.1mm, the generous APS-H size, yielding a 1.3x lens conversion factor that is better for wide-angle work than smaller, less costly sensors. Additionally, the large sensor means that each of its 8.2 megapixels (3520 horizontal by 2342 vertical) can be a considerable 8.2m square. This surface area produces greater
III. NEW AND IMPROVED DESIGN FEATURES
sensitivity to light, higher effective ISOs, better shadow and highlight detail, higher signal output and exceptionally low noise compared to earlier EOS Digital SLRs.
DIGIC II Image Processor
The DIGIC II provides the EOS-1D Mark II N camera with an ultra-fast processing system, in part because of its use of DDR-SDRAM (Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) and eight- channel simultaneous reading from the sensor. The DIGIC II retains its acclaimed on-chip noise reduction circuit that produces low levels of noise, even at high ISOs, and provides high-precision computing for natural color reproduction, superb color accuracy, wide tonal range, reduced false 8-channel signal reading colors and low power consumption. The DIGIC II combines the functions of the original DIGIC, the camera control module and the image processing module, all on one unit, reducing size, cost and complexity, and increasing performance and reliability.
1-Series Tradition: A Complete Range of Functions
The EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR shares its heritage with the EOS-1, -1N and 1v film SLRs and the -1D, -1Ds, -1D Mark II and 1Ds Mark II digital SLRs, a noble family of rugged and top-performing professional cameras. Necessarily, it has shutter speeds from 1/8000 to 30 seconds plus Bulb, a maximum X-sync of 1/250 second, ISO speeds from 100 to 1600 in 1/3-step increments (with expansion to ISO 50 or 3200 using menu screens), 100% viewfinder coverage, short startup time (0.2 sec), a shutter release lag time of 55 ms (or 40 ms at full aperture with P.Fn-26 set), active mirror control for a finder blackout time of approximately 87 ms, four JPEG resolution settings, ten JPEG compression settings, RAW and RAW+JPEG simultaneous recording, precise auto white balance, WB correction and WB bracketing, 45-point area AF with metering sensors in 21 zones, high-speed AF and high-speed subject tracking, the E-TTL II advanced flash exposure system, and IEEE1394 (FireWireTM) for faster image transfers to a personal computer.
In addition to accepting the entire array of Canon EF (but not EF-S) lenses and EX-Series Speedlites, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR is completely compatible with all system accessories for the EOS-1D and EOS-1D Mark II cameras (including the DVK-E2 Data Verification Kit, but not the DVK-E1 or the IFC-200D6/450D6 Interface Cables), wireless/ wired LAN image transfers (with WFT-E1/E1A), IPTC (International Press Telecommunication
Council) information tags for JPEG images, Exif 2.21 (especially for color space and printing applications), and formatting capabilities for memory cards up to 2 GB and larger.
Basic Operation Ease
Like all 1-Series cameras, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR is as comfortable to hold vertically as it is horizontally. It retains the graphical user interface for accessing many functions, always with a priority on shooting. Most of the improvements from the Mark II model to Mark II N model make the new camera even easier to use.
As on the EOS-1D Mark II and the EOS-1Ds Mark II cameras, the Canon logo on the EOS-1D Mark II N camera uses sculpted and color-filled lettering for a look of quality and sophistication. The new screen on the back seems enormous and is unmistakable. On the whole, the 1D Mark II N camera looks like just what it is, a rugged and elegant professional instrument.
Reliability and Durability
In keeping with 1-Series practice, the EOS-1D Mark II N camera uses magnesium alloy with a tough, scratch-resistant coating for the top, front, bottom, sides and rear covers, the memory card slot cover and the chassis. The mirror box is a machined aluminum casting. The shutter is tested for 200,000 cycles, the highest reliability rating for an SLR with a focal plane shutter. Extensive use of gaskets and seals gives the camera thorough dust and water resistance. Noise-resistant electromagnetic shielding and careful
distribution of electronics keeps images noise-free. A new cable protector is bundled with the camera; it prevents movement of the IEEE1394 cable in its socket and the damage that could cause.
Extensive Software Package
The EOS-1D Mark II N camera will be packaged with the EOS Digital Solution Disk, Ver. 11, which includes ZoomBrowser EX 5.5, ImageBrowser 5.5, EOS Capture 1.5 (Windows/ Macintosh), PhotoStitch 3.1 (Windows/Macintosh), and a set of PTP, WIA and TWAIN Drivers (Windows). At no extra cost, the camera will also come with Digital Photo Professional, Ver. 2.0, an immensely useful tool for professional digital workflow.
