Overview: The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV digital SLR kit
camera body only. No lenses are included. Improvements over the 5D
Mark III include a new 30.4 Megapixel Full-frame image sensor, the Digic 6+
processor, 4K video capabilities, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, and a SuperSpeed USB
Rugged Exterior Body: The EOS 5D Mark IV's exterior is
constructed with lightweight and ultra-rigid magnesium alloy that fits
in your hand.
Intelligent Viewfinder: The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV uses an
eye-level pentaprism viewfinder with 0.71x magnification for approximately 100%
vertical and horizontal coverage. The viewfinder uses a transparent LCD to
superimpose a customizable combination of focus points and gridlines directly
over the image. Unlike with other cameras, the intelligent viewfinder gives you
the choice of seeing shooting information or looking only at the scene in front
of the camera.
Clear View II LCD Touch Screen Monitor: The EOS 5D Mark IV features a 3.2" Clear View
color LCD monitor with approximately 1,062,000 dots which allows you to view and shoot
real-time images. The monitor has a capacitive touch screen that allows you to
make menu selections, touch focus and touch shutter in Live View, and browse
images using your fingers. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 3 automatic
or 7 manual brightness
levels to choose from. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections
(3x3), 24 sections (6x4), or 9 sections with diagonals, as well as a dual-axis
electronic level. The Live View function enables you to shoot your subjects
while viewing them on the LCD monitor.
30.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor:
The EOS 5D Mark IV features a huge, full-frame sensor. The
30.4-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images of up to 6720 x 4480 pixels. For the flexibility to shoot in even the most
dimly lit situations, the EOS 5D Mark IV offers Canon's highest ISO sensitivity
to date, ranging from 100-32000 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 51200 and H2:
102400). Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at
highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.
DIGIC 6+ Image Processor:
The EOS 5D Mark IV uses the DIGIC 6+ Image Processor, with a dedicated DIGIC 6
just for metering. It can deliver continuous shooting speeds of up to 7
frames per second, 4K video recording, and lower noise at high ISO settings.
Sensor Cleaning System: Canon's Integrated Cleaning system includes a
self-cleaning sensor unit and software that can remove the effects of dust on
the image sensor. The Self Cleaning Sensor, attached to the image sensor's front
layer (low-pass filter) can shake off dust automatically when the camera is
powered on or off. In case visible dust remains on your images, you can append
the Dust Delete Data to the images to erase the dust spots later using the
provided Digital Photo Professional software.
Note: Dust which could not be removed by
the automatic sensor cleaning can be removed manually with an optional
Dual Recording Media Slots: The EOS
5D Mark IV has two slots for inserting recording media. The camera can use a
Type I CompactFlash (UDMA Mode 7 supported) card or an SD card (SD, SDHC, or SDXC),
including UHS-I cards. If a card is
inserted in both slots, you can select which card to record images to, or record
the same images simultaneously on both cards. No recording media is supplied with the camera.
Note: When recording 4K video, you must use a CF card
UDMA7 (100 MB/sec or faster) or SDHC/SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 (90 MB/sec or higher).
Image Recording Format:
The camera records still images in JPEG
and RAW (14-bit Canon Original) formats. Simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording is also possible.
The image's aspect ratio can be set to 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1. JPEG images will
be saved with the set aspect ratio, while RAW images will always be saved in
3:2, with the aspect ratio information stored in the image. Movies can be recorded in the MOV format
(4K video: Motion JPEG, Full HD + HD movies: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, Audio: Linear PCM)
or MP4 (Video: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, Audio: AAC).

- Zone AF (manual zone selection - 9 zones)
- Large Zone AF (manual zone selection - 3 zones)
- AF Point Auto Selection AF
Focusing Modes: The camera employs one of 3 AF systems, plus
manual focusing, to let you seize every
photo opportunity with fast, accurate focus:
- One-Shot AF: suited for still
subjects, the camera focuses only once.
- Predictive AI Servo AF (III): for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps
changing. The subject will be focused continuously while the shutter button
is pressed halfway.
- AI Focus AF: switches from
One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF automatically if the subject starts moving.
- Manual Focusing
Shooting Modes: The EOS 5D Mark IV's top-mounted Mode Dial
offers the following shooting modes:
Automatic (Scene Intelligent Auto): The camera analyses the
scene and sets the optimum settings automatically.
- Program AE:
The camera automatically sets
the shutter speed and aperture value to suit the scene's brightness.
- Shutter-Priority AE (Tv): In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the
camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit the brightness of
the subject. A slow shutter speed can create a blurred effect, while a
fast shutter speed can freeze action.
- Aperture-priority AE (Av): In this mode, you set the desired aperture
value and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the
subject brightness. A low aperture number can create a blurred
background (narrow depth of field), while a high aperture number can create
a sharp foreground and background (wide depth of field).
Exposure: In this mode, you set both the shutter speed and aperture
value as desired.
- Bulb: When Bulb is set, the shutter stays open as long as you
hold down the shutter button completely, and closes when you let go of the
shutter button. Bulb exposures are for night scenes, fireworks, the night
sky, and other subjects requiring long exposures. It is recommended that you
use a tripod and a Remote Switch, such as the
RS-80N3, for bulb exposures.
- Custom Shooting Modes: You can register the shooting mode, AF
mode, menu settings, etc. to the three Custom Shooting Mode positions (C1,
C2, C3) on the Mode Dial.
Metering: The EOS 5D Mark IV features the iSA (Intelligent
Scene Analysis) system, with a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor. The system
provides precise exposure metering, detects flickering lights, and allows for
enhanced scene recognition and face detection.
Metering Modes: You can select from the following metering modes:
- Evaluative Metering: The camera's standard metering mode suited for most subjects even under
backlit conditions, after detecting the main subject's position, brightness,
background, front and back lighting conditions, etc, the camera sets the proper exposure.
- Partial Metering: Effective when the background is much brighter than the subject
due to backlighting, etc, uses approximately 6.1%
of the frame at the center.
- Spot Metering: For metering a specific part
of the subject, uses approximately 1.3%
of the frame at the center.
- Center-weighted Average
Metering: Metering is weighted at the center and then averaged for
the entire scene.
ISO Speed: The camera's ISO speed can be set between 100 and
32000 in 1/3-stop increments to suit your shooting conditions. The camera
also features a Low ISO setting equivalent to ISO 50 and two High ISO
settings equivalent to 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2). In addition the camera features an
Auto ISO setting which allows the camera to automatically set the ISO speed
from 100 to 12800 in Scene Intelligent Auto mode, ISO 100-32000 in P, Tv,
Av, or M mode, or ISO 400 in Bulb mode.
Style: By selecting a Picture Style, you
can achieve various effects matching your photographic expression or the subject.
You can also adjust the Sharpness (with separate strength, fineness, and
threshold parameters), Contrast, Saturation, Color tone, Filtering Effect
(monochrome), or Toning Effect (monochrome) of
each Picture Style. Picture Style selections include:
- Auto: Color tone is adjusted automatically to suit the
scene. The image will look vivid, especially for blue skies, greenery, and
sunsets in nature, outdoor, and sunset scenes.
- Standard: A general-purpose Picture Style to suit most
scenes. The image looks vivid, sharp, and crisp.

is for nice skin
tones, making the image look softer. You can change the color tone to adjust
the skin tone.
- Landscape: For vivid blues and greens, very sharp and crisp images.
- Fine Detail: Suited for detailed outline and fine texture
description of the subject, and slightly vivid colors.
- Neutral: For natural colors
and subdued images, no sharpness applied.
When the subject is photographed under a color temperature of 5200 K, the
color is adjusted to match the subject's colorimetrical color, no
sharpness applied. (recommended for users who prefer to process images on
- Monochrome: Creates black and white images
- User Defined 1-3: You can register your own Picture
Style settings for Portrait and Landscape modes.
High Dynamic Range (HDR): You can take artistic photos
having a high dynamic range and preserving detail in highlight and shadow
areas. HDR shooting is effective for landscape and still-life photos. With
