More settings and options to ensure perfect composition and exposure
The EOS-1Ds Mark II's high-definition, 230,000 pixel 2.0-inch color TFT LCD offers nearly twice the resolution of monitors on other EOS digital models. It displays nearly 100% of JPEG images, features a new, bolder typeface that simplifies reading of text menus, and five brightness settings. Users can choose to display one to 9 images on the screen, and can see all of their image information when looking at a single image.
Expanded Zoom Displays
Displayed photos can be magnified from 1.5x to 10x in 15 stops, allowing users to check the focus and exposure of images with a new level of precision. Operation is simple: users press the Enlarge/Reduce button in combination with the AF point selector to zoom in, the AE lock button to zoom out, the Main Dial to scroll horizontally, or the Quick Control Dial to scroll vertically.
The RGB histogram is a unique feature newly available on only high-end Canon digital SLRs. This professional feature enables separate checking of color information for the red, green and blue channels, as well as inspection of other color information such as white balance, color balance, saturation and gradation compression. Available when viewing any recorded image in the Single (Info.) image playback mode, the RGB histogram is displayed as an alternate to the brightness histogram, which draws attention to white portions of the image that lack image information.
Auto Rotation of Vertical Images
To enable easier viewing, images shot vertically are automatically rotated when played back on the LCD monitor. Manual clockwise rotation of the image is also possible by 90, 270 or 0 degrees through the image rotation menu.
