Canon has unveiled its new flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark II.

It features a new 20.2 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor and captures 4K (4096x2160) up to 60fps to a CFast 2.0 card.

It can also shoot HD (1920x1080p) at 120fps.

High resolution 8.8 megapixel stills can be extracted from a 60fps 4K scene.

Canon described the camera as the most responsive EOS DSLR to date, due partly to the new Dual ‘DIGIC 6+’ processors.

Built-in GPS records shooting locations in EXIF (exchangeable image file) data.

Ethernet wired LAN and USB 3.0 connections can be used to share images via FTP or directly to a computer.

The EOS-1D X Mark II will be available from May for £5,199.
