It seems like every couple of weeks or so, the rumor mill is leaking new details about the next-generation flagship EOS camera. This time, a trusted source is reporting something that we have heard in the past: the Canon 1D X Mark II will employ a 24-megapixel image sensor.

Trusted source: Canon 1D X Mark II to come packed with 24-megapixel sensor
There was a lot of speculation surrounding the amount of megapixels found in the upcoming sensor of the Canon 1D X Mark II. Multiple versions have been mentioned, ranging from a shy 18 megapixels up to around 46 megapixels.
Now that the 5DS and 5DS R high-resolution DSLRs are here, it is very unlikely that the 1D X replacement will sport such big-megapixel count.
However, the rumor mill is reporting that the camera will gain some megapixels when compared to its predecessor. It seems like he company has decided that a 24-megapixel sensor is the one which works best for the users.
The problem is that the shooter’s release date is still far away and that this means that there is plenty of time for things to change. Nevertheless, Canon has to get it right as some major sports events are taking place in 2016.
Either way, these rumors are coming from someone who has provided accurate details in the past while making a lot of sense, so they could turn out to be the real deal.

The second piece of information from the same source is stating that the burst mode on the Canon 1D X Mark II will be faster than 12fps. The current generation does 12fps per second so the replacement will be faster.
Unfortunately, the exact amount is unknown at this point. Either way, this will become the dream camera for professionals therefore it should come packed with Canon’s latest and best technologies.
New details will be reported as soon as they become available on the web, so make sure you do not miss them!
