We have an update for you on the recent rumor that we shared regarding the EOS-1 D X Mk II. If this rumor is legit, Canon may soon get the Dynamic Range monkey off its back.
According to the new report over on Canon Rumors, in addition to the improved ISO capabilities of the new EOS-1 D X Mk II, the body will feature vastly improved Dynamic Range. CR speculates that it could have the most stops of dynamic range of any DSLR currently on the market (though that could change with new announcements from other companies).
If this is true, it would be a huge deal for Canon, as the company has received lots of flack over the last year or so over the Dynamic Range of their sensors compared to that of their competition. It would also make sense for Canon to debut such a technology leap in their flagship DSLR, so there could be something to this rumor.
That said, CR does give it a CR2 rating, so plenty of salt is required. If you are a Canon shooter/fan, this is something that has got to get you a little excited.
What are your thoughts about this Canon EOS-1 D X Mark II rumor? Do you think that Canon can close, and even surpass the Dynamic Range gap in one tech generation? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
