Each captured image is recorded with the date and time it was taken. If the date and time are not properly set, the wrong date/time will be recorded. Make sure you set the date and time correctly.
Setting the ISO Speed
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a high ISO speed is suited for low light and moving subjects. However, the image may look more coarse with noise, etc. On the other hand, a low ISO speed is not suited for low light or action shots, but the image will look ner. The camera can be set between ISO 100 and 1600 in 1/3-stop increments.
Hold down the <E> and <Q> buttons simultaneously.
The current ISO speed will be displayed on the LCD panel.

ISO speed is displayed on the LCD panel, then let go of the buttons. s The ISO speed will be set.
At higher ISO speeds and higher ambient temperatures, the image will have more noise. High temperatures, high ISO speeds, or long exposures may cause irregular colors in the image.
ISO speed extension
Under the <z> tab, set [ISO expansion] to <On> to enable ISO 50 or 3200 to be set. When set, ISO 50 is indicated by L and ISO 3200 by H.
3Selecting the White Balance
Normally, the <Q> setting will set the optimum white balance automatically. If natural-looking colors cannot be obtained with <Q>, you can set the white balance manually to suit the respective light source.
Select the white balance setting.
Hold down the <B> button and turn the <5> dial to select the desired white balance. Then let go of the button.

Q W E R Y U I O
About White Balance
The three RGB (red, green, and blue) primary colors exist in the light source in varying proportions depending on the color temperature. When the color temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color temperature is low, there is more red. To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature can be adjusted with software so that the colors in the image look more natural. The subjects white color is used as the criteria for adjusting the other colors. The cameras <Q> setting uses the CMOS sensor for auto white balance.
recorded in the memory card in the following sequence: standard color temperature, decreased color temperature, and increased color temperature. To cancel white balance bracketing, return the setting to < >.
One level of the blue/amber correction is equivalent to 5 mireds of a color temperature conversion lter. You can also set white balance correction and AEB shooting in addition to the white balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot. During continuous shooting, the number of images recorded will be three times the number of shots taken. Since three images are recorded for one shot, the memory card will take longer to record the shot.
3Selecting the Color Matrix
The color matrix enables you to select the preferred color shade, color tone, and color space (range of reproducible colors). These are equivalent to color lm characteristics.
Select [Color matrix].
Select the <z> tab. Hold down the <X> button and turn the <5> dial to select [Color matrix]. Then let go of the button.
[Color matrix]. 2 Select down the <X> button and Hold

Standard Portrait H-saturat.
Provides natural-looking color shades and tones. Effective for bringing out the subjects natural colors. Provides ideal color tones for portraits. Effective for rendering nice skin tones. Makes the color shades look similar to high-saturation slide lm. Effective for making the colors look crisp. This is mainly used for commercial printing and other industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you do not know about image processing and Adobe RGB, DCF 2.0 (Exif 2.21). Since the image will look very subdued with sRGB personal computers and printers not compatible with DCF 2.0 (Exif 2.21), post-processing of the image will be required. Makes color shades lighter. Makes the colors more subdued. First set the parameters with [Set up]. For setting CM set 1 or 2.
File numbering after replacing the memory card
Memory card 1 Memory card 2
The le numbering continues in sequence even after you replace the memory card. This prevents images from having the same le number, so image management with a personal computer is easier.
100 XXXXXXXX0002 XXXX0001 XXXX0002
Even if the memory card still has space, shooting is not possible beyond le number 9999. If this happens, follow the instructions on the LCD monitor and hold down the <X> button and turn the <5> dial to select [OK]. A new folder will be created and you can continue shooting. To prevent any interruption in shooting, set the le numbering method to [M-Reset] beforehand. If the memory card in use has a DCIM folder, the le numbering might continue from the last image saved in the folder.
A le name is assigned automatically to each image you capture. The le name consists of a unique, four-character camera code preset at the factory and a le number assigned automatically. The camera code cannot be changed. (Example)
Forced reset (M-Reset)
This creates a new folder automatically and starts the le numbering from XXXX0001. Subsequent images you capture are stored in this new folder. The le numbering method (auto reset or continuous numbering) will be the one that was set before forced reset.
Autofocus and Drive Modes
The Area AF ellipse has 45 AF points. By selecting a suitable AF point, you can shoot with autofocus while maintaining the desired subject framing. You can also set the AF mode to suit the subject or obtain the desired effect.
First set the <4> switch <7> switch and to <1>.

The aperture value is set automatically.
4 Check the viewnder display and shoot.
As long as the aperture value is not blinking, the exposure will be correct.
If the maximum aperture blinks, it indicates underexposure. Turn the <6> dial to set a slower shutter speed until the aperture value stops blinking. Or increase the ISO speed.
If the minimum aperture blinks, it indicates overexposure. Turn the <6> dial to set a faster shutter speed until the blinking stops. Or decrease the ISO speed.
Shutter Speed Display The shutter speeds from 8000 to 4 indicate the denominator of the fractional shutter speed. For example, 125 indicates 1/125 sec. Also, 0"5 indicates 0.5 sec. and 15" is 15 sec.
In this mode, you set the desired aperture and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the subject brightness. This is called aperture-priority AE. A larger aperture (lower f/number) will result in a blurred background ideal for portraits. The lower the f/number, the more blurred the background will become. If a smaller aperture (larger f/number) is used, the foreground and background will be in focus. The higher the f/ number, the clearer the focus will be for both near and far subjects. *f stands for Aperture value.

You can also set exposure compensation by pressing the <O> button (9) and turning the <6> dial. The exposure compensation amount will remain in effect even after the <4> switch is set to <2>. Take care not to turn the <5> dial and change the exposure compensation inadvertently. To prevent this, turn the <7> switch to <2>.
hAuto Exposure Bracketing
The camera brackets the exposure automatically up to 3 stops in 1/3stop increments for three successive shots. This is called Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB). AEB is possible by automatically changing the shutter speed or aperture or by changing the ISO speed and keeping the shutter speed and aperture xed.
AEB with the Shutter Speed or Aperture
Set the AEB amount.
Press the <W> and <E> buttons simultaneously and turn the <6>. The diagram on the left shows an AEB amount of 1 stop centering on the standard exposure level. The AEB amount (1.0), the AEB range <N>, and the <h> icon will be displayed.

indicator will indicate the respective bracketing amount as each shot is taken. The current drive mode will be used for the AEB shooting. After the three bracketed shots are taken, AEB will not be canceled. To cancel AEB, set the AEB amount to 0.0.
AEB with the ISO Speed
Set the ISO speed that is to be the standard AEB exposure. For example, if you want AEB with 1 stop and ISO 200, 400, and 800, set the ISO speed to 400.

Press the shutter button completely.
The mirror will lock in the up position.
Again press the shutter button completely.
The picture is taken and the mirror goes back down.
In very bright light such as at the beach or ski ground on a sunny day, take the picture promptly after mirror lockup. During mirror lockup, do not point the camera lens at the sun. The suns heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains. Bulb exposures cannot be used with the self-timer. During the self-timer countdown, if you let go of the shutter button, there will be a shutterrelease sound. This is not the shutter release (no picture is taken). During mirror lockup, the drive mode will be single shooting (u) to override the current drive mode (single or continuous). After 30 seconds, the mirror lockup will be canceled automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely again locks up the mirror again. For mirror lockup, using Remote Switch RS-80N3 or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (both sold separately) is recommended.
If you take a picture without looking through the viewnder, stray light may enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure. To prevent this, turn the eyepiece shutter lever as shown by the arrow to shutter the eyepiece.
With EX-series Speedlites
An EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlite makes ash photography as easy as any AE mode. For details on using the EX-series Speedlite, refer to the Speedlites instruction manual. The EOS-1D Mark II is a Type-A camera compatible with all EX-series Speedlites providing the features below.
E-TTL II Autoash
E-TTL II is a new autoash exposure system incorporating improved ash exposure control and lens focusing distance information, making it more precise than the previous E-TTL (evaluative ash metering with preash) system.The camera can execute E-TTL II autoash with any EX-series Speedlite.
High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
High-speed sync (FP or focal-plane ash) enables ash synchronization with all shutter speeds from 30 sec. to 1/8000 sec.
FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
Press the cameras <I> button to lock the ash exposure at the desired part of the subject. This is the ash equivalent of AE lock.
Flash exposure compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, you can set exposure compensation for ash. Set ash exposure compensation up to 3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
FEB is the ash version of AEB. (Only with FEB-compatible Speedlites.) Set ash exposure bracketing up to 3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
E-TTL II wireless autoash with multiple Speedlites
Like with wired, multiple Speedlites, E-TTL II wireless autoash with multiple Speedlites provides all the above features. Since connection cords are unnecessary, exible and sophisticated lighting setups are possible. (Only with wireless-compatible Speedlites.)
Metered Manual Flash Exposure
For closeup ash photography, you can set the ash exposure manually. With an EX-series Speedlite having a manual ash mode, follow the procedure below:
1 Set the camera and Speedlite settings.
Set the cameras shooting mode to <a> or <f>. Set the Speedlite to manual ash.
2 Focus the subject.
3 Aim the spot metering circle over the subject, then
press the <FEL> button (8).
The Speedlite will re a preash and the required ash output is retained in memory. s In the viewnder, the exposure level indicator will indicate the currently-set ash exposure level relative to the standard exposure index.
4 Set the ash exposure level.
Adjust the Speedlites manual ash level and the camera aperture so that the ash exposure level indicator is aligned with the standard exposure index.
5 Take the picture.
TTL and A-TTL Autoflash Speedlites
With TTL and A-TTL autoash Speedlites (EZ-, E-, EG-, ML-, TLseries) set in the TTL or A-TTL autoash mode, the ash will be red only at full output. If you set the cameras shooting mode to manual or aperture-priority AE, you can adjust the aperture and re the ash at full output. Meanwhile, the Speedlite will remain in the TTL or A-TTL autoash mode. When the 550EX is set to C.Fn-03-1, the ash will be red at full output even in the TTL autoash mode.
Non-Canon Flash Units Sync Speed
If you hold down the <r> button and press the <y> button, the 9-image index will appear. If the image has image verication data appended (P.Fn-31), it cannot be rotated.

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
1Ds Mark II
1D Mark II N
Digital Rebel XT
professional sports photographers. The same is true in wedding and fashion photography. Many of these cameras have seen long and hard service and could be replaced if a persuasive opportunity presented itself. Purchasing managers for news organizations and studio operations will certainly find the combination of value and significant evolutionary improvements an excellent argument for cycling through existing 1-Series equipment in service. Further, while the EOS-1D Mark II N camera is easier to use, its complete compatibility with existing Canon lenses, Speedlites and accessories means that its introduction into an equipment pool will not require any sort of re-engineering, avoiding additional expense, complication and nuisance. Working photographers will feel at home immediately with the EOS-1D Mark II N camera. It has the feel and responsiveness they know and rely on combined with a new ease of use they will appreciate and enjoy. Pros of every stripe will recognize it instantly for what it is: the new professional standard.

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

Screen for RAW+JPEG images separate recording onto two cards
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.
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.

The day after the specifications of a new camera are set for production, an idea for some worthwhile change inevitably presents itself. This is because, first of all, development continues on the product itself. Second, once the camera has been sold in any numbers, there is feedback from users that is worthy of consideration. Then, development continues on the entire line of, in this case, DSLRs, and components developed for one application might be just the ticket for another one as well. If, for example, the cost of developing a new screen could be shared among several cameras, each benefits on both sides of the price/performance equation. So, while the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR retains the benchmark features that made the EOS-1D Mark II camera such an overwhelming success, there is a great deal about it which is new and significant. User requests are largely responsible for the separate RAW and JPEG recording, low-level formatting of SD cards, automatic folder creation, user-settable file names, easy switching of recording card slot, ISO setting in the viewfinder display, inclusion of file size in the INFO display, menu operation during image processing and writing, as well as improved settings for both Custom Functions and Personal Functions. The new Ec-S focusing screen was developed to help the many sports and portrait photographers who focus manually. Advances in computing system logic enable faster startup time, greater burst performance, enhanced magnified view options and the new automatic noise reduction option. Two examples of shared technology are the new, large display and the Picture Style approach to controlling image characteristics. As a result of these changes, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR is a camera that will be a source of pleasure to owners and users alike, whether or not they are one and the same. Those who pay for the 1D Mark II N camera will appreciate its rugged durability, long product life, system compatibility and under $4,000 price range. Professional users will value its great speed and responsiveness, its superb image quality, its rugged durability and system compatibility, coupled with its new ease of operation. For those who pay their own hard-earned money for their equipment and who, then, must make a living with what theyve bought, the EOS-1D Mark II N camera makes a perfect argument for itself. It is, clearly, the new professional standard.
