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

 

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 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...

Canon 5D Mark IV Review

 

The Canon 5D Mark IV offers a ton of new features and performance upgrades, but keeps things modest and familiar with its similar yet refined design. The fourth iteration of Canon's popular 5D series gains a new, higher-res sensor, a faster processor,...

Superb image quality from RAW files; Improved dynamic range; Excellent high ISO performance; Fast 7fps burst rate with unlimited JPEG buffer; High-quality cinema 4K video; Built-in Wi-Fi; Dual Pixel CMOS AF is very good

JPEG files look soft at default settings; 1/200s flash sync; 4K video codec is cumbersome; 29:59 continuous video recording limit
