Canon EOS 5D Mark IV review: The 30-megapixel monster

 

Canon has stepped things up a gear in recent years by leading with higher-resolution DSLR cameras. It had long been said that the 24-megapixel mark would be the company's limit until lenses could make the best of the capture resolution - a concept that...

Autofocus system rarely bettered in viewfinder or screen-based use, image quality is solid, clever Dual Pixel RAW re-focus, touchscreen works well

No vari-angle LCD screen, no light-up buttons, the 30MP sensor might be too high-res for some, 4K video has limited file types, expensive

It's been four years since the 5D Mk III hit the market, so has the Mark IV version been worth the wait? Absolutely.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV review

 

Performance, at a price

Touchscreen interface ; Advanced AF system ; Excellent sensor performance ; Connectivity

Expensive compared to rivals ; ISO range hasn't increased ; 4K video options limited

if you can justify the outlay, then the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has to be one of the most well-rounded and complete DSLRs we've seen. Suited to a range of subjects, from landscapes to sports and wildlife, it'll perform superbly in any situation.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

 

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is exactly what we expected form Canon. The addition of a few new features, 4K video and a boost in performance enhance an already fantastic camera. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Incredible image quality in all shooting modes, with easily adjustable settings and color profiles ; Very low noise relative to ISO settings throughout ISO range · Outstanding speed in both image capture and AF ; GPS and WiFi add some great...

Very large body ; 4K video requires CF UDMA7 (100MB/sec. or faster); SD UHS-I (90MB/sec. or higher) - New cards to purchase ; Screen does not tilt or swivel, which would be helpful when shooting video at difficult angles ; 3,500 is out of most price...

For an all-around camera, the 5D Mark IV can handle just about anything you throw at it.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV review: Approaching perfection

 

With welcome improvements to an already great camera, the 5D Mark IV is very nearly the perfect SLR

Great autofocus in video ; 4K video capture ; Peerless image quality

No articulated screen ; Motion JPEG video capture result in enormous file sizes

Still, Canon users now have yet another excellent model to choose from. It’s the best 5D model for video capture, performance, autofocus and — narrowly — image quality. I don’t think it’s an essential upgrade for Mark III and 5Ds owners, but this is...

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

 

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV balances resolution and shooting rate, making it an ideal camera for professional photographers.

30MP full-frame image sensor. Fast 61-point autofocus system. 7fps continuous shooting. Unlimited JPG shooting buffer. Pro-grade build. Dual Pixel AF Live View focus system. 3.2-inch touch screen. Integrated GPS and Wi-Fi. CF and SD card slots.

Cropped 4K video. Clean HDMI output is 1080p only. Dual Pixel Raw function slows camera and offers limited benefits. 4K video files are quite large. Omits in-body flash.

The EOS 5D Mark IV is a big upgrade for pro photographers invested in the Canon system. It ups the resolution, putting it in the same class with Nikon's D810, while also bettering its closest competitor in frame rate, video capture capabilities, and...

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

 

Canon's 5D Mark IV is a top performer - but you'll be paying a premium for it. Top-notch images are promised from this camera, which will be all too familiar to existing users of the 5D Mark III or 5D Mark II.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

 

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV boasts a huge array of high end features, including a 30 megapixel full frame CMOS imaging sensor and Canon's latest AF system, for a significantly lower price than Canon's current 1-Series model.This value and versatility, as...

My expectations were that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV was going to be at least as wildly successful as its predecessors were, but that expectation was not very hard to realize.The Canon EOS 5-series cameras have become synonymous with value and...

Canon EOS 5D mark IV review

 

The king is dead, long live the king - Canon's latest 5D is a real champion

Genuine improvements like touchscreen control ; Dual pixel RAW is incredible (when it works) ; Fantastic video and still photo quality

New features mean a higher debut price ; Some bugs to iron out in dual pixel RAW

Canon does it again with a 5D camera to be proud of. The Mark IV builds on the heritage of previous models and brings new improvements that make it simply superb.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV pro dSLR brings 4K video, GPS and more

 

It's been a whopping four years since Canon first shipped its full-frame EOS 5D Mark III dSLR, a popular model for professional photographers who don't need the speed of a model the size of, say, a 1D X Mark II. And even then the 5DM3 wasn't a huge...
