Canon just introduced 5D Mark IV
If you have ever attend to a wedding or an event where a professional camera is needed, you will see photographers use Canon 5D Mark III. It is a very powerful and capable camera ,but there was one problem. It was introduced just before 4K started to rise. As a result, the camera which supposed to be one of the most powerful ones was not supporting the feature that was even available on our phones.
The new 5D Mark IV brings 4K and other features that we all wanted on Mark III.
To start with, Mark IV is able shoot 4K video ( 4096×2160 ) at 24 or 30fps. However, if you insist on the new HDR feature, then you are limited to 1080p at 30fps.
The other unique point of Canon 5D Mark IV is “Dual Pixel AF”. It is a technology based on the use of phase-detection on each pixel of the sensor.
On the back, there is a 3.2-inch touchscreen which makes focusing as easy as only one touch. Also, thanks to the new display and new “Dual Pixel RAW” technology, you can change the focal point even after you take the picture.
Other features are 30 megapixel sensor ( compared to the 22 on Mark III ), faster continuos shooting speed at 7fps ( which is 1 more than the previous generation ) and new connectivity features including Wi-Fi, NFC, and GPS. However, there are also few things that didn’t change with the new generation. For example, ISO range ( which is 50 to 102,400 ) is same.
And here comes the price. It costs $3,500 and will be available from September. The good thing is that if you own Mark III, you probably have some good sensors and you can use any sensor compatible with Mark III with Mark IV as well. However, there are new sensors for Mark IV anyway.
