The fourth version of the highly successful Canon EOS 5D, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is now available, and the latest version introduces a number of new features, including a new 30 megapixel full-frame sensor made by Canon, 7fps continuous shooting, 4K video recording, plus built-in GPS and Wi-Fi.
The Mark IV has a very similar design to previous marks to make it familiar to people who have used other 5D cameras. The camera now features a deeper front grip and the rear thumb grip is bigger. There's also a new customisable button on the back, where the thumb lands. Introduced with the camera is a new battery grip, designed to match the 5D Mark IV design and control layout. Several components, such as the battery, are backwards compatible, meaning that a lot of the equipment that fit to previous 5D marks will fit the Mark IV.
From the moment light passes through the lens, the EOS 5D Mark IV captures every nuance, every colour, every detail. Once again Canon has brought finer dimensions in detail thanks to a new sensor capable of extraordinary clarity. See your world like never before.
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. 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.
Canon’s AI servo AF III features an AF algorithm that, improves the tracking sensitivity in scenes where subject movements may occur suddenly. Six customisable AF Case study settings help you choose the most appropriate option for your subject such as Tracking Sensitivity, Acceleration/Deceleration tracking and AF Point Auto Switching.
Legendary cameras are built to last, and the EOS 5D series brought superior build quality, performance and advanced weathersealing to a new breed of photographers. The EOS 5D Mark IV continues that commitment to high speed performance and durability. JTW aims to augment this durability with the sensitivity needed for the best astrophotography possible.
Camera shake or mirror bounce vibration can cause blur, which is why Canon developed a Mirror Vibration Control System to minimise this blur and deliver sharp images with suppressed noise levels; perfect for shooting pictures with longer exposure times as maximum stillness improves the amount of photons landing on the correct pixel.
