Canon 5D Mark IV Review


• • •

Does weather-sealing matter? Watch our thử nghiệm and decide for yourself.

The Canon 5D Mark IV was harangued at launch by the đoạn Clip community because it didn"t seem capable of upholding the legacy of the 5D series for filmmakers. It lacked 4K in 60p, it introduced an incredible crop factor in 4K đoạn Clip, and the dynamic range of clips was extremely disappointing. Add lớn that sub-par ISO performance, & you had yourself a camera that was barely fine, and most certainly not what the community expected nor wanted.

If you go baông chồng in time and read articles, comments & editorials about the camera from around the net, you"ll find that there are a great many disappointed, even angry, reactions to the camera"s introduction. And while it is a more than serviceable stills camera, it was immediately dumped on as a bad video clip camera.

Back then, I agreed. But a couple months later Canon seemed to "get it" too, and introduced a C-Log tăng cấp for the 5D Mark IV. This would be the first, & as of now, still the only time that Canon has put their Log protệp tin on a non Cinema EOS-series camera, and only the second DSLR they"ve made to feature it (the first being the 1DC).

Canon 5D Mark IV reviews - Product Overview

For years now, Canon"s 5D-series DSLRs have been incredibly popular with photographers and videographers alượt thích. The 5D, 5D II và 5D III each hit a sweet spot in terms of price & performance for a full-frame camera, but after debuting in March 2012, the Mark III was getting a bit long in the tooth.

Now, the 5D Mark IV is here khổng lồ take the 5D lineup into the future, and it sports a wide range of significant updates throughout, many of them borrowed from the flagship 1D-series or even marking firsts for Canon or the industry as a whole. No doubt about it, this is one extremely exciting và important camera!

A br& new, higher-res image sensor và faster processor

Perhaps the most important change of the bunch is a brand-new full-frame image sensor. In place of the earlier 22.3-megapx chip used in the 5D III, the Canon 5D IV"s sensor now has an effective resolution of 30.4 megapixels. It also adds support for the company"s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which we"ll come baông chồng khổng lồ in a moment.

Accompanying the new image sensor is an upgraded image processor, something that has allowed Canon lớn make a step forward in performance despite the significant increase in pixel count. The new DIGIC 6+ image processor replaces the earlier DIGIC 5+ chip, and was previously seen in the Canon 1DX II. (That Mã Sản Phẩm included twin DIGIC 6+ processors, however, where the 5D IV makes vì chưng with just the one.)

Swifter performance & a wider default sensitivity range

Canon rates its new camera as capable of up to seven frames per second in burst shooting, up from the six fps provided in the earlier 5D III. As well as the higher resolution and swifter performance, the new image sensor & processor together allow an improvement in sensitivity. Or at least, in that portion of the sensitivity range which Canon feels is good enough to merit availability by default. The overall expanded sensitivity range of ISO 50 to 102,400-equivalents is unchanged from the 5D III, but the Canon 5D IV allows everything from ISO 100 lớn 32,000-equivalents by mặc định. The earlier 5D III, by contrast, topped out at ISO 25,600-equivalent unless you enabled ISO sensitivity expansion.


The Canon 5D IV has updated metering & autofocus systems, too

To better take advantage of its new sensor & processor, the 5D Mark IV also sports updated metering & autofocus sensors.

In place of the earlier 63-zone dual-layer iFCL metering sensor borrowed from the 7D, the Canon 5D IV now uses a 153,600-px, 252-zone RGB+IR metering sensor. This new design was borrowed from the 7D II, & thanks to lớn its much greater resolution, it should allow for better, more accurate face recognition và tracking in particular. It should also khuyễn mãi giảm giá with hard-to-meter subjects better thanks lớn its improved granularity.

The new autofocus sensor, meanwhile, retains the same 61-point count (complete with 41 cross-type points) as in the earlier 5D III. The change in the new High Density Reticular AF II chip -- the earlier variant lacked the "II" designation -- is that the AF sensor in the Canon 5D IV now has wider coverage, better low-light sensitivity and improved performance.

To put a number on the improvement in low-light AF, where the 5D III had a lower limit of EV -2 to lớn 18, the 5D IV will be able to lớn focus down to lớn EV -3 with its center point & an f/2.8 maximum aperture. And in live view mode, it will focus in even dimmer conditions, all the way down to -4 EV.

And as for the coverage improvement, the Canon 5D IV"s AF points now cover 24% more of the image frame horizontally, và 8% more vertically.


Dual Pixel CMOS AF with a touch-screen (and its not just for movies!)

Like the Canon 1DX II before it, the EOS 5D Mark IV now sports Canon"s clever Dual Pixel CMOS AF giải pháp công nghệ. In a nutshell, what this does is khổng lồ allow for phase-detection autofocus across much of the image frame, either in live sầu view shooting or during movie capture. And just lượt thích its flagship sibling, the Canon 5D IV includes a touch-screen khổng lồ help you get the most from this new feature.

But where the 1DX II limited use of that touch-screen to use during movie capture & in playbaông chồng mode, there are no such limitations on the 5D IV. Instead, you"ll be able khổng lồ use the touch-screen lớn specify your subject for autofocus either in movie mode or in live sầu view shooting.

And now, Dual Pixel RAW arrives to lớn let you subtly fine-tune focus post-capture, too

And not just that, but the Dual Pixel CMOS AF tech is also being used in an entirely new (and we have sầu to lớn say, very clever) way in the 5D IV, courtesy of what Canon is calling Dual Pixel RAW.

It"s such an interesting và exciting new feature that we"ve sầu devoted an entire section of this reviews khổng lồ it, which you can read here. In a nutshell, though, what it allows is for minor post-capture adjustments to lớn autofocus, bokeh & ghosting. You can also combine adjustments lớn all three, if you lượt thích.

Much more on this brand-new tech can be found in our Dual Pixel RAW Insights section below.


Ever more capable movie capture including in-camera 4K & high frame-rate video

The 5D III was already a favorite of videographers, & for good reason. Recognizing that, Canon has really worked to make the 5D Mark IV an even more capable đoạn Clip shooter. We"ve already mentioned the availability of full-time phase-detection autofocus during đoạn phim capture, but what else is new?

Perhaps the most significant change in this area is in-camera 4K video clip capture, just as in the flagship Canon 1DX II. And just as in that camera, there"s one important thing khổng lồ note: The sole compression type for 4K đoạn Clip is Motion JPEG.


That"s both good & bad news. Since there"s no interframe compression, image unique in 4K mode is good. However, tệp tin sizes will also be spectacular. (Although not quite as much so as is possible with the 1DX II, because where that camera tops out at 60 frames per second in 4K capture, the 5D IV is limited lớn 30 fps capture.)

Just as in the 1DX II, the Canon 5D IV allows you lớn extract single high-chất lượng 4K frames at their native 8.8-megapx resolution in-camera, as well.

And even if you"re not shooting 4K yet, the Canon 5D IV brings other video improvements for you. For one thing, you can now shoot Full HD (1080p) at up to 60 frames per second, instead of the earlier 30p limit. And if you"re willing khổng lồ drop the resolution khổng lồ HD (720p), you"ll get 120 fps capture for either silky-smooth motion, or up lớn a 4x slow-motion effect without dropping your output below 30p.

There"s also a new HDR movie function, which allows true high dynamic range shooting. This shoots frames at 60 fps, then combines them to create a Full HD output Clip at 30 frames per second. And if you want to record video externally, there"s also a clean video clip output via HDXiaoMi MI, although this is at a maximum of Full HD resolution, not 4K, sadly.

Wireless networking & geolocation no longer need clumsy external accessories

If you had the need, the Canon 5D III could be connected to lớn wireless networks to chia sẻ photos và videos, and could automatically tag your photos with their capture location. Both functions needed external accessories that were expensive và radically changed the camera"s handling.

The Canon 5D IV fixes all this, sporting Wi-Fi wireless networking & GPS without the need for external accessories. Instead, these features are built inkhổng lồ the camera itself. For Android users, the Wi-Fi connectivity comes complete with NFC for quick-and-easy pairing.

Incidentally, it"s worth noting that even if you don"t want GPS for its geolocation capabilities, it"s also handy for keeping your camera"s cloông xã updated. This could be particularly useful if you"re shooting multiple cameras, & need their internal clocks khổng lồ be synced extremely accurately.


A redesigned, better-sealed body toàn thân, but you"ll need khổng lồ buy a new battery grip

Although it has almost the exact same layout as its predecessor in terms of the controls and features, the Canon 5D IV has a newly-designed body toàn thân. That means you"ll also need a new battery grip accessory, if you"re upgrading from the earlier 5D III. In place of that camera"s BG-E11 battery grip, the Canon 5D IV requires a new BG-Etrăng tròn grip.

On the plus side, Canon says that it has taken the opportunity khổng lồ improve the 5D Mark IV"s weather-sealing. It"s now said lớn be similar to lớn the 7D Mark II in this area, with the controls better-sealed than they were in the 5D III.

One change of note to lớn the controls is the addition of a new AF Area Select control on the bachồng of the camera. It"s customizable, so if you don"t want khổng lồ use it for this function, you can repurpose it for something else. Oh, and if you"re looking for the remote control terminal, it"s now been moved to lớn the front of the camera.


Canon 5D Mark IV pricing and availability

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV went on sale in the US market in early September năm 2016 in a body-only configuration or in a kit with the EF 24-70mm f/4 L lens. A second kit, opting instead for the EF 24-105milimet f/4L IS II USM lens, is also available & went on sale in late October 2016. Pricing is set at around US$3,500 body-only, the exact same point at which the 5D III launched bachồng in 2012. The 24-70milimet kit retails for around US$4,400, và the 24-105milimet kit for US$4,600.


The Canon 5D Mark IV: An evolution of the 5D seriesI"ve been a Canon bạn for a while now, having purchased my first one, a Canon 7D -- that"s still working perfectly by the way -- baông chồng in 2010. I"ve shot with various Canon DSLRs along the way since then, including the 5D Mark II extensively as well as their latest beast, the 1D X Mark II. However, between then và now, I"ve gravitated towards the mirrorless world, as the size and weight advantages have become rather important qualities if I am to haul some pholớn gear around with me. Hiking, traveling, or social gatherings all lover themselves to having smaller, lighter camera gear.

So, when the 5D Mark IV made its debut, I was a little hesitant khổng lồ get excited about the camera, at least from a form size và ergonomics standpoint. For one thing, I wasn"t too excited about its typical DSLR bulk & weight. Under the hood, on the other h&, the 5D IV sports a lot of great new features, including some nice amenities, such as built-in Wi-Fi & a touchscreen; two features that have sầu quickly become must-have features on my own personal cameras.

So, without further avị, let"s dive sầu in & see how Canon"s lathử nghiệm 5D-series camera performs out in the field.

Performance for almost any type of shootingIf there"s one thing you can count on from an enthusiast or pro-cấp độ Canon SLR, it"s superb responsiveness, và the 5D Mark IV does not disappoint. It just does everything fast. For example, I know that it can"t actually shoot at the exact moment that it"s turned on, but the lag is so short I can"t detect it -- power-on lớn first shot seems instantaneous. Every other camera operation & control are similarly quiông xã. When I"m shooting, I often take 3-shot bracketed sequences, and the 5D Mark IV rips through these in a 1/3 of a second. During my time with the 5D Mark IV, I never found myself waiting for the camera, which is, of course, exactly as it should be for a pro-màn chơi tool.

The 5D Mark IV"s autofocus as advanced as it getsAs we noted in our overview, the 5D Mark IV comes equipped with an extremely advanced autofocus system, very similar in many ways khổng lồ the EOS 1DX Mark II. In my tests, it"s pretty amazing in low light, able to lớn focus reliably và relatively quickly in situations so dark that I can"t really see the subject with my naked eye. The good low light sensitivity holds for both normal viewfinder operation and in live view mode thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

About a week before the EOS 5D Mark IV"s release, we had an unusual opportunity khổng lồ spkết thúc a day with it & Canon Explorer of Light Parish Kohanyên ổn in his studio here in Atlanta.

Parish is an incredible photographer; it"s well worth the time to lớn visit his site & check out his work. A lifelong Canon user, he was one of the first Explorers of Light, when the program first began almost 30 years ago.

Besides a chance khổng lồ see the 5D IV at work in a studio environment, it was fascinating for us khổng lồ see such an exceptional pro at work. All of us here love sầu photography & taking pictures, & I myself -- this is Dave sầu E. writing this section -- have sầu been in quite a few commercial phokhổng lồ studios. Those studio environments were always pretty cut và dried, though; the task at h& simply being lớn capture hàng hóa photos or very standard catalog-style fashion shots in a pleasing manner.

The 5D Mark IV introduces a new technology called Dual Pixel Raw for the first time. What it amounts khổng lồ is the ability khổng lồ shift the apparent focus very slightly after a picture has been taken. Alternately -- or in combination with the focus tweak, if you prefer -- you can make small changes in the bokeh or out of focus areas of the image, or you can reduce ghosting to lớn a degree.

Canon was very careful not to lớn use the word "focus" when describing Dual Pixel Raw to us, saying that they don"t want people lớn get the idea that they can make significant post-focus adjustments in software. Instead, they refer khổng lồ it as a "micro adjustment". That obviously begs the question of what"s being adjusted, and as long as you promise not to tell anyone, we"ll go ahead và say that it"s focus. (Or bokeh, or ghosting reduction, as noted above sầu.) But bởi see the full discussion below, to lớn underst& why Canon is being careful not to use the "f-word" ;-)

Although it looks much lượt thích the 5D III before it & features almost exactly the same control layout, the 5D Mark IV actually has a newly-designed body toàn thân. Compared to that of the 5D III, the 5D IV"s chassis & external panels are designed both for greater rigidity, và to better-radiate heat during operation. (Most likely, heat output during 4K Clip capture was a primary concern during development.)

Inside, the 5D IV"s chassis consists of aluminum and engineering plastic, while the mirror box is also plastic. On the outside, magnesium alloy is used for front, rear & bottom panels, & Canon says that a new coating on these has better wear resistance.

The company also tells us that the EOS 5D Mark IV is weather-sealed to lớn the same degree as the 7D Mark II, & lớn a greater level than was the 5D III before it. In particular, sealing around the lens mount, shutter button, video switch, battery and card compartment doors, và the windows for the remote control, self-timer lamp và thẻ access lamp are said khổng lồ have been improved.

The high-kết thúc enthusiast & professional camera market continues lớn see advances in image quality as successive models arrive sầu year after year, and we thought it would be interesting to lớn go ahead and post some side-by-sides for you from our Still Life chạy thử target of the 5D Mark IV as compared khổng lồ its popular predecessor, the 5D Mark III, as well as to some current high-kết thúc competing full-frame models from Nikon, Pentax & Sony in the D810, K-1 & A7R II.

It"s interesting khổng lồ note that four of five of these heavyweight models sport dramatically different sensor resolutions, and as a result it"s sometimes difficult to gauge noise levels when viewing at different apparent 1:1 sizes. For this reason in the ISO 6400 comparisons we"ve shown them first "as-is" at 100%, và then also with the higher resolution Mã Sản Phẩm down-sampled in order lớn show them at a similar apparent kích cỡ to lớn make them easier to compare. First let"s take a quiông chồng look at the competitors.

Print chất lượng và image quality are similar but not identical, because what you see on a print isn"t always the same as what you see on the screen. Our print chất lượng analysis answers the important question: "Just how big can I print my photos at higher ISOs?"

With its higher-resolution sensor và updated image processor, the fourth-generation of Canon"s popular 5D series of DSLRs makes a very solid showing in our print chất lượng testing. From extended low ISO all the way lớn ISO 800, the 5D Mark IV is capable of excellent, sharp prints up khổng lồ 30 x 40 inches. As ISO sensitivity increases, the camera displayed very well-controlled noise characteristics, allowing for some impressively large prints, such as 13 x 19 inch prints at ISO 6400 and 11 x 14 at ISO 12,800. While the native ISO range of the 5D Mark IV stops at ISO 32,000, the camera still managed a usable 4 x 6 inch print at its first expanded ISO of 51,200; however, prints should be avoided at the maximum expanded setting of ISO 102,400.

Classic, familiar 5D-series styling with modern refinementsCanon"s classic 5D-series undergoes its fourth revision, bringing a host of important new features và upgrades, but without totally reinventing the wheel. It"s still the familiar 5D camera that professionals & enthusiasts alượt thích know và love sầu, và we think that"s great. Aimed at professional and advanced enthusiast photographers & videographers, the familiarity of the 5D-style camera is a welcomed aspect, as it lets them just pichồng up the camera and go without any steep learning curve sầu.

Design-wise, there are few notable changes, the primary one being the inclusion of a touchscreen -- a first for a 5D series camera. Like other touch-enabled Canon cameras we"ve tried, the 5D IV"s works really well; it"s fast & responsive sầu và works great for tapping lớn adjust the focus point if you"re framing shots with live view or shooting Clip. The thực đơn system và Quiông xã Menu are also now fully touch-enabled, & while the thực đơn GUI hasn"t changed khổng lồ accommodate finger-sized navigation, it wasn"t frustrating lớn use, in our experience.

And while the toàn thân kiến thiết is similar, it"s different enough to lớn necessitate a new battery grip. You can"t just use your old 5D Mark III grip, so keep that in mind when budgeting for the new Mark IV.
