Understanding the EOS-1D X Mark II

Add to Cart 12.95

Canon's flagship DSLR camera – the EOS-1D X Mark II – is formidable. It inherits the long tradition of outstanding performance delivered via the professional 1D-series and builds on the feature set and capability. With this evolution comes new features and functions, improved controls and the ultimate tool set in terms of customisation.

This comprehensive guide is ideal if you're moving up from an earlier 1D-series camera (other than the original 1D X) or another EOS camera further down the range. Being primarily a button-driven camera, the layout may seem unfamiliar at first, but this book will give you confidence when navigating the many buttons, dials and menu screens.

Because the camera can be so highly customised to suit your photographic needs, you'll be talked through what you need to consider when setting up your camera, including the My Menu options. You'll also learn about the powerful 61-point focusing system and how to optimise it to suit your subject.

All in all, this book will get you up to speed quickly with the key features and overrides on your camera, meaning you can use your 1D X Mark II more confidently and accurately in a variety of scenarios.
