If you want to keep yourself advanced in this ever-changing world of technology, you should get hold of the Canon 5D Mark IV camera. This is a unique product from the house of Canon that combines functionality with style. A number of professionals as well as amateur camera enthusiasts are referring to this camera today for clicking pictures with great clarity and resolution. The camera looks similar to its predecessor Mark III and is characterized by some amazing features such as a higher-resolution sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus, an upgraded AF system, 4K video capture, a touch-screen interface, a better weather-sealing technology, built-in Wi-Fi/NFC, an interval timer and an advanced GPS system. All these features make it the most popular camera of its type and it is widely preferred among the buyers as a result.

FEATURES

Pixel Ratings: You might argue that these features are not sufficient for beating its competitors like 36.3MP Nikon D810 or 42MP Sony Alpha 7R II, but files still come out at 6720 x 4480 pixels- the pixel-characteristics of Mark IV are quite impressive. Also, if you are interested in higher pixel ratings, the 50.6MP 5DS is there for you.

Sensor Technology: The sensor technology used in 5D Mark IV is identical with that of 1D X Mark II and 80D. The digital to analog conversion takes place on-chip. It delivers a better noise resistance and a wider dynamic range.

Dual Pixel Technology: The camera also makes use of the Dual Pixel Raw technology which helps the photographers to finely tune the maximum sharpness area. In this technology, each pixel comprises two photodiodes and enables the creation of a file with a pair of images with two different focus points. Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software will help you to shift the focus for making proper adjustments.

Native Sensitivity: The native sensitivity of the camera is in the range of ISO100-32,000, and can be expanded to 50-102,400. It is no doubt a commendable feature, but it is similar to that of 5D Mark III. The noise processing algorithm has been developed in a suitable manner to provide better performances at a higher sensitivity.

Processor: There are two processors used in Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, namely the DIGIC 6 and a DIGIC 6+ processor. While the former one is mainly used for metering, the latter one is the latest proprietary processor of Canon and helps in improving the quality of both images and videos. It works with genuine Canon optics and CMOS sensors and helps in producing great quality pictures. The processor is deft at analyzing the situation, irrespective of the number of parameters used. It then uses the most sophisticated technologies of the camera that are suitable in this respect.

AF System: The AF system is sensitive even up to a level of -3EV and -4EV in live view which is darker than moonlight. This highly sensitive system helps in clicking images in the poorest of light. Sports and wildlife photographers would love the idea of using a lens or teleconverter combinations with an aperture of f/8 and using 61 AF points (21 cross-type) at the same time.

Another advanced technology used in this camera is Canon’s Dual Pixel AF technology, which helps in a quicker AF acquisition than that of 5D Mark III, and a high-speed performance as well.

The Screen: The large 3.2-inch screen has as many as 1,620,000 dots and touchscreen functionality just like the 1D X Mark II. However, the touchscreen was only active during Live View on the 1D X Mark II whereas here it is active all the time. So, you can easily navigate across the menu and review the images as well.

Battery: The battery is same as that of Mark III. So, users who are shifting from Mark III to Mark IV will find no difficulty in using the same battery for both the cameras.

Canon’s 5D Mark II came with full-HD video. The technology has undergone remarkable changes since then and the video quality of the phone has improved further.

Among the other features, we would like to mention the external microphone and headphone ports, the HDMI Mini out and USB 3.0 terminals, the dual SD and CompactFlash card slots accepting fast UDMA 7 cards, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity which help in transferring images to another suitable device and the built-in GPS.

 

Comparison to the Peers

There are many full-frame models in camera from the house of Canon. Among the high-end models, the Canon’s sports and action-oriented 1D X Mark II, with its 20.2MP sensor and 14 fps continuous shooting (with AF) must be mentioned. Also, If you are looking for a high-resolution model, you can go for the 5DS with its 50.6MP sensors. And in case you are looking for an all-rounder, Mark IV will be the model for you.

Also, for the existing users of Mark III, upgrading to Mark IV will be a great option. In short, Canon 5D Marl IV outdoes its peers in all respects and is a great camera to buy.

    Adobe hasn’t quite released the update in order to be able to edit RAW images through lightroom. Hopefully by next update.
