What is a used Canon EOS 1DX Mark II Camera like?
Is it a piece of junk?
Here is the scoop on used high end cameras…they are in MINT condition and a smart buy. Think about it. Professional and amateur photographers take excellent care of their cameras, after all they cost thousands. This is the tool they use to earn a paycheck. It would not be smart to abuse it and have it break or become damaged, which would cost money to fix. This just does not happen. Photographers typically have their cameras serviced every year. The camera service includes a cleaning, inspection and repair if necessary. Digital camera repairs can be quite expensive.
Anyway….BUY a used digital SLR camera anytime you can. The ones that I bought were like new. I couldn’t believe they were used. They were spotless.

Canon is one of the leaders in the photography world and has over 3 decades of advanced innovation with autofocus technology. Only Nikon rivals it. Canon’s 61 point autofocus system incorporates a High Density Reticular AF II system. It is one of the most advanced AF systems. It has expanded vertical coverage via 41 cross points.
The Canon EOS 5D has 2 memory card slots to accommodate SD, SDHC and SDXC cards. UHS-1 is supported but MMC is not. UHS-II is not supported either.
A remarkable feature of the 5D is the self cleaning sensor unit. It removes dust sticking to the low-pass filter. Self cleaning can be done automatically whenever the camera is turned on or off. When the self cleaning procedure is complete, the camera will power on.
The Dust Delete Data acquisition and appending feature detects the coordinates of the dust adhering to the low-pass filter via a test shot and then are appended to subsequent shots. The dust spots are automatically erased.
