No matter what you’re shooting, be assured of uncompromising image quality and a thoroughly professional performance.
Reasons to buy
Designed to perform in every situation, the EOS 5D Mark IV is beautifully engineered and a thoroughly accomplished all-rounder.
A 30.4 Megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images that are packed with detail and low in noise, even in bright highlight and dark shadow areas. A finer resolution means nothing is lost, allowing you the freedom to crop in for the perfect shot and retain the quality.
Each of the EOS 5D Mark IV’s 30-million pixels is made up of two photodiodes, which can be used together or individually. This technology enables the creation of Dual Pixel RAW (DPRAW) files, which contain a pair of images shot from two very slightly different points of view. When processed using Digital Photo Professional software, DPRAW files allow photographers to perform image adjustments to keep sharpness on the area intended.
Low light performance is improved at every ISO setting, with much reduced digital noise and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 32,000 (expandable to ISO 102,400). Be confident of superb image quality even when shooting in poor light.
Built-in Lens Aberration Correction improves lens performance by compensating for factors like diffraction, distortion and chromatic aberrations to produce an image which is visibly superior.
A Digital Lens Optimizer adds another layer of correction, tackling even more optical phenomena, including the effect of the camera’s optical low-pass filter. The result: optimised performance and incredible image quality.
The 5D Mark IV features a choice of Auto White Balance (AWB) settings that take a different approach to artificial light. ‘Ambience Priority’ aims to retain some of the warm colour tones from artificial light sources in order to preserve some of the atmosphere of a scene, while ‘White Priority’ eliminates most of the warmth from tungsten lighting and tries to give colour-neutral images where possible.
The ‘Fine Detail’ Picture Style has been included in the 5D Mark IV to maximise the amount of detail captured by the cameras’ 30.4 Megapixel sensor. This setting prioritises gradation of tones and emphasises fine detail.
Fine Detail Picture Style features three adjustable sharpening parameters, similar to those found in the Unsharp Mask filter in Adobe Photoshop and Canon’s DPP software.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features advanced focusing and metering which captures moments and tracks them the instant they happen, even in difficult lighting.
Legendary cameras are built to last, and the EOS 5D series brought superior build quality, performance and advanced weathersealing1 to a new breed of photographers. The EOS 5D Mark IV continues that commitment to high speed performance and durability.
Record your movie moments using the power of EOS 5D Mark IV’s incredible sensor to add detail and extra refinement to every scene. With options to record in high-resolution 4K as well as Full HD for frame rate options including 60p slow motion, the world of DSLR filmmaking just got better.
A feature taken from the EOS-1D X Mark II, EOS 5D Mark IV users can shoot 4K movies and save any frame as a beautifully detailed 8.8-megapixel still image straight to memory card as a JPEG file.
Faster frame rates bring new and exciting opportunities to immerse your audience into the moment. An incredible 120fps HD video capability captures even the fastest subject in glorious detail.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features Dual Pixel CMOS AF, one of the most important feature upgrades over the EOS 5D Mark III. Enabling smooth and precise pull focus transitions in any resolution from 4K to Full HD, just touch on the LCD the points you wish to focus to and from and let the camera do the rest.
Stay focused on the action, with an expanded 61-point AF system that tracks even the most erratic of subjects. In the EOS 5D Mark IV, the 61 AF points1 have been given a wider area in which to operate – an 8 percent more vertical expansion in the central area, and 24 percent more vertical expansion in the peripheral area – giving greater freedom in where subjects can be placed when composing.
By alternating between normal and under-exposed frames, HDR movie mode can compress the brightest parts of a scene and retain more highlight detail – thus delivering movies with a wide dynamic range.
With a highly-sensitive AF sensor the focus performance on the EOS 5D Mark IV is assured, even down to light levels as low as EV-3. This is further improved to EV-4 when shooting in Live View with Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
If you are a sports or wildlife photographer, you will often have to use super telephoto lenses with extenders to get closer to your subjects. With a maximum of 61 points with 21 cross-AF type points at f/81, high precision focusing is made that much easier.
The EOS 5D Mark IV uses a dedicated 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor to carry out highly accurate exposure metering. This sensor also works in conjunction with the camera’s AF system to help detect and track coloured objects and perform face recognition.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features the EOS iTR AF system, which greatly enhances the subject tracking performance. Customise the tracking based on your needs with different modes for when focusing and tracking a face or a different subject.
