Canon's New 1D X Mark II Shooting at 16 FPS Makes a Wonderful Sound

By Jamie Condliffe on at

You probably really want Canon’s new £5,200 flagship DSLR. But if you were on the fence, the beautiful noise it makes as its shutter flicks open at 16 frames per second — like a kind of soothing machine gun rat-a-tat-tat — might just convince you.

The guys at ePHOTOzine got their hands on the 1D X Mark II and posted this video of the camera’s 16 frame per second continuous shooting mode to YouTube. Its faster than its rival, the Nikon D5, can manage; its rapid fire mode can muster just 12 frames per second.

You probably still can’t afford one, of course. But may well want one more than ever. [ePHOTOzine via Peta Pixel]
