1. 30.4MP CMOS Sensor
EOS 5D Mark IV has a 30.4-megapixel CMOS sensor along with its newly-developed and rapidly-generated data output. Although it has a higher pitch count but the pixel pitch of the camera has been maintained. Besides, the regular ISO speed has been raised to ISO 32000 in the camera.
2. Maximum ISO Speed of ISO 102400
As mentioned earlier in the article, the normal range of ISO speed in the camera has an upper limit of ISO 32000. However, it can be expanded to ISO 102400.
3. Touch Screen Function
Mark IV has the first touch screen facility in the EOS 5D series. A photographer can now capture his/her images just by tapping on the LCD touch screen of EOS 5D Mark IV.
The LCD screen also allows users to focus and release the shutter, enlarge the image playback, and see the next frame in a movie through the touchscreen. Functions can be directly selected from menu items or the Quick Control screen.
4. Image Processing Function – DPRAW
DPRAW means Dual Pixel RAW format of an image. DPRAW provides the image with some additional Dual Pixel CMOS AF information which later helps for photography post-production works. Many facilities like Bokeh Shift, Ghosting Reduction, and Micro adjustment can be applied in the DPRAW formatted files.
5. Up to 7 fps Continuous Shooting
Seven frames per second is the framing speed of EOS 5D Mark IV, which is 1 fps higher than the previous version of the series – EOS 5D Mark III. The electronic circuit of the camera has been newly developed by Canon to achieve the goal.
6. Dual Pixel CMOS AF with a Minimum Focusing Brightness of EV-4
EOS 5D Mark IV has an improved focusing capacity in low light during Live View shooting mode to minimum EV-4. The camera also comes with FlexiZone – Multi autofocusing.
7. 150,000-pixel RGB with IR Metering Sensor
Along with an IR metering sensor, the camera has a 150,000-pixel RGB sensor. These sensors have been installed in the camera utilizing the color and face recognition system.
8. More Robust Lens Aberration Correction
Peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, chromatic aberration correction, and diffraction correction can be applied in EOS 5D Mark IV. These changes can be applied even in the JPEG format.
9. 1080/30p Movie Shooting (compatible with 4K)
The camera is capable of shooting 4K movie shooting at a Digital Cinema Initiative standard of 4K/30p. With EOS 5D Mark IV, any photographer can now shoot 4K quality videos within minutes.
10. Intelligent Viewfinder II
The viewfinder of EOS 5D Mark IV is compatible with new functions like flicker warning. An electronic level display replaced the one that was displayed with the AF frame in the previous version of the series.
11. Dust- and Water-resistant Components
The EOS 5D Mark IV is made of dust and water-resistant components to ensure service of the product at any time, anywhere. Also, the areas around the lens mount have also been incorporated with dust and water-resistant rings.
These are some of the unique and exciting features of Canon’s EOS 5D Mark IV. Besides, the camera has a lot of other features that will help the consumers to get the perfect shot they want.
