Canon Announce 5D mark IV

Canon debuts the long-awaited EOS 5D Mark IV, the latest in the line that launched the video DSLR revolution. Designed originally for news agencies, so that reporters could shoot stills and video with one set of kit, the format was quickly adopted by indie film shooters. The 5D and the Canon EF lenses have become the starting point for many of today’s videographers, creating filmic images at a fraction of the price of professional digital cinema cameras and their lenses

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV features as brand new full frame 30.4 megapixel CMOS sensor with wide exposure latitude 7 frames per and internal 4K movie recording.The ISO ranges from 100 to 32000, expandable from 50 up to 102400,

The EOS 5D Mark IV is also the first EOS camera to premiere the innovative Dual Pixel RAW file format, allowing photographers to fine-tune images in post-production by adjusting or correcting the point of sharpness, shifting the foreground bokeh or reducing image ghosting. 

EOS 5D Mark IV Key Features:

  • 30.4 megapixel CMOS sensor with high exposure latitude
  • Innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Dual Pixel RAW
  • Step up to cinematic 4K with DCI (4096 x 2160) capture at 30/25/24 fps

Dual-Pixel RAW

Each of the camera's pixels is made up of two photodiodes which can be used together or individually. This technology enables the creation of Dual Pixel RAW files which contain a pair of images shot from two very slightly different points of view. When processed using Digital Photo Professional software, Dual Pixel RAW files allow photographers to perform one of three types of unique adjustments. Image Microadjustment allows the position of maximum sharpness to be adjusted which is great for fine-tuning portrait images. Bokeh Shift allows out-of-focus highlights to be shifted horizontally so they coincide better with in-focus elements, and ghosting reduction can be used to reduce the appearance of artefacts like flare.

The camera writes to CF and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

Shipments start September 2016
