Canon 5DIV DSLR Camera

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a workhorse DSLR camera built for professional photographers and cinematographers. Coming from a prestigious lineup of award-winners, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV follows in the footsteps of the 5D Mark III with a wealth of new and improved features. The new Digic 6+ Processor is front and centre, contributing to the processing speed. Whereas a High-Density Reticular AF combined with 150,000 pixels, RGB IR can capture subjects quickly regardless of the lighting environments.

This Canon camera is undoubtedly a winner for all cinematographers, with 4K capabilities, built-in Wi-Fi as standard and a full-frame CMOS sensor to capture it all. The ISO range competes amongst competitors, and the LCD touch screen is a breeze to use. Powering the camera, users will be familiar with the battery LP-E6N, a stable power solution for DSLR cameras (over mirrorless bodies). Overall, we think you'll fall in love with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV if you are new to Canon, upgrading from another Canon camera or switching from a competitor.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV: The Ultimate Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

When you combine a 30.4 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with a robust body, you know you're on to a winner. Due to the sensor's design, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is built to capture high-resolution images. Unlike an APS-C sensor (such as the Canon 7D MK II), the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV full-frame sensor gains a greater pixel μm (micrometre) surface contributing to greater resolution and realistic High Dynamic Range capabilities. Plus, the benefit provides a way for a larger ISO range capability of ISO 100 to 32000 (Extended: 50 to 102400).

A Faster DIGIC 6+ Processor

Continuous shooting is a dream for sports and wildlife photographers. Previously, the Canon 5D Mark III was able to capture six photos per second. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, on the other hand, improves this spec by one, making a total of seven frames per second continuous shooting speed.

The reason for the increase is the new DiGiC 6+ processor. Its data handling abilities enable images captured by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV to record and process much faster to an SD, SDHC, SDXC memory card. For photojournalism, weddings and other genres that require quick action, this makes the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV a viable option. 

Dual Pixel RAW on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Dual Pixel CMOS AF is something, not all cameras feature. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV boasts this functionality, providing photographers with the ability to tweak their photos focus ever-so-slightly after taking the photo. After analysing the depth information in the image, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is able to map this for micro adjustment. Meaning, you will have the ability to alter the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV bokeh or foreground focus after you take the image. This feature alone makes the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV a worthy contender for your camera bag.

Intelligent Infra-red and RGB Metering Sensor

Let's talk about one of the biggest cyborg features in the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The Intelligent Infra-red and RGB metering systems break the barriers of what a standard focus system looks like. Under the hood, there are 150,000 pixels RGB IR which meters the lighting conditions to provide the perfect exposure. Not only does it meter the normal colour spectrums, but it goes a step further to include infra-red light. By splitting the two spectrums of light into 252 metering zones, Canon EOS 5D Mark IV users get perfect metering at the touch of a button.

Capture 4K Video on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Don't be fooled when looking at the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. It's not just a DSLR camera. It's a cinema camera capable of 4K Video (true DCI 4K video). With an outstanding resolution of 4096x2160, the scenes you can capture are truly breathtaking. In terms of compatible rigs, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV welcomes cine cages and rigs of all sizes. You'll find the assortment of compatible lenses is more than enough to cover all your focal lengths in your next production. Just make sure, though, when you insert the camera into your rig, you have easy access to the SD, SDHC, SDXC slots. You're going to need a lot of memory space when recording at this resolution. Better still, plug in your external recorder directly to the camera to capture breathtaking scenes in 4K; you'll save on card space altogether.

When the 5D MK II came out, cinematographers stopped in their tracks. Canon has created something truly unique, and now two generations have passed; it's true to say the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV fills all the gaps in what is a professional cine tool. We encourage you to speak to the team at Digital Camera Warehouse, who can assist in your photography and cinematography questions and needs. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV takes a little time to get to know, so we can also offer one-on-one education to help you get the most from this flagship DSLR.

8.8 Megapixel Stills from Video

Adding to the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV bag of tricks is the ability to export high quality 8.8 megapixel still images from the 4K video. This means that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV can shoot in a continuous shooting mode up to 30 frames a second. While 8.8 frames aren't going to be at the highest RAW resolution on the Canon camera, it is a handy feature to have.

Slow Motion Video Capture

Aside from true 4K video, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV can record a 1080p video. When downsampling the resolution, the frame rate is able to increase, thus making it perfect for slow-motion capture. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV frame rates include 59fps at 1080p and 119fps at 720p. Adding to this is the ability to connect to an external recorder with a 4:2:2 output ensuring you get the highest possible resolution with the best codec.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Touch Screen LCD

When you are out on the job, you need a reliable way to review your footage or photographs. The 1,620,000 dot touch screen LCD is a welcoming asset on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. When in use, the beautiful screen doesn't draw too much power from the battery (LP-E6N), and the colour rendition is outstanding. The overall size of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV LCD screen is 3.2”, making it ideal for reviewing the photos after capturing them using the high-density reticular AF system. Moreover, you can visually see any noise generated from a high ISO range, meaning you can reshoot on the spot. A touchscreen of this spec is certainly a welcome asset for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

61 Point Dual Pixel Autofocus on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

For those in the photojournalism field, reliable focus in low light scenarios is critical. Nailing the focus in these environments could be the difference in achieving an award-winning photo. The AF system on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV sets itself apart from competitors and other models in the 5D range. In basic terms, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV uses a 61-point autofocus system to track objects across the entire frame - flawlessly. The way it does this is by using dual-pixel technology across the entire full-frame CMOS sensor. While there is a 41-cross type AF system that users can select, the 61-point system works in tandem - up to -3EV - making the servo AF system ideal for low light use (even when in continuous shooting mode).

Built-in Wi-Fi

You'll find there's both GPS and Wi-Fi included with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. This connectivity feature is a valuable asset if you are a sports photographer. You can use the built-in Wi-Fi on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV to send the best moments straight to publishers straight from your SD, SDHC, SDXC memory card. Now that's a game-changer! The NFC Wi-Fi functionally doesn't drain the battery too much, but we recommend having a spare battery (Canon LP- E6N) in your kit just to be sure.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV AF System: 41 Cross-type Autofocus Points

Similar to previous models, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has an incredible AF system. This time around, you'll find servo AF at your fingertips with 41 cross-type AF points that work incredibly well along both the vertical and horizontal plane. Plus, on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV body, there's also the 61-point dual pixel autofocus that works in tandem to capture sharp images in low light.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Sees In Low Light

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV opens your eyes to new possibilities. With an impressive ISO range from 100 to an expanded 102400, capturing low-light images isn't a problem anymore. Canon has natively capped the ISO to 32000, but this shouldn't stop you from exploring the higher ISO's on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. We say this because Canon has developed an enhanced noise reduction algorithm that vastly reduces artifacts in photographs, making the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV a perfect performer for all low light use cases.

A Full-Frame CMOS Sensor in a Body Built To Outlast

It doesn't matter if you plan on continuous shooting or recording 4K video all the time; the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will perform every time. The durability of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV body surrounding the full-frame CMOS sensor is impressive. The outer shell is built from a rugged magnesium alloy, while all ports and buttons (including the battery LP-E6N is stored) are weather and dust sealed.

Final Thoughts on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

In summary, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is an impressive beast. Thanks to the 61-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF and High-Density Reticular AF, its ability to focus is an upgrade from previous models. Plus, you'll find more connectivity functionality with Wi-Fi NFC at your fingertips, making bypassing a computer a breeze.
