Canon, one of the leading brands in the field of digital imaging solutions has announced the successor to its very famous high-end camera in the 5D series, as the Canon 5D Mark IV goes official. The camera carries forward the legacy that the series already held in both the departments, picture and video shooting.
The camera comes with a 30.4 megapixel 35mm Full Frame Canon CMOS sensor that is said to offer stunning image quality while the DIGIC 6+ Image Processor delivers 4K 30P video and up to and seven frames per second (fps) continuous shooting. The company’s proprietary Dual Pixel CMOS AF is also included to make the video shooting and focusing easier, and even while shooting 4K videos, sharp focus and subject tracking are ensured.
“Canon’s EOS 5D series of DSLR cameras has a history of being at the forefront of still and video innovation. And today, we add to this family of cameras the EOS 5D Mark IV– the first in our 5D series to offer 4K video and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “In developing this new DSLR camera, we listened to the requests of current EOS users to create for them a modern, versatile camera designed to help them create and share beautiful still and video imagery.”
“Outdoor photographers will really appreciate the new EOS 5D Mark IV, as it offers more resolution, better detail in the shadows, and improved speeds in autofocus and frame rate,” reported acclaimed nature photographer and Canon Explorer of Light George Lepp. “With the fabulous resolution of 4K video and the ability to make beautiful prints from a frame of that video as an added bonus, this camera sets a new mid-range standard for nature photography.”
Along with the camera, Canon has introduced two L-series EF lenses – the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Standard Zoom Lens. Three connectivity options are new for a 5D camera and we see Wi-Fi, NFC, and GPS as well.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a 3.2-inch LCD screen, which is the same as in the predecessor but the resolution has been made better with 1.62 million dots. Also, it was a standard display earlier but now, it is a touch-sensitive panel that will let the users tap and focus, and also pinch in and out to zoom into and out of the previews.
The Mark IV will be available in September and will carry a price tag of $3499.
