Canon launched the EOS 5D Mark IV for professional photographers and filmmakers. The EOS 5D Mark IV is equipped with a 30.4-megapixel full-frame high-sensitivity sensor and the Dual Pixel CMOS AF for rapid focusing speed while new features such as support for Dual Pixel Raw format and 4K frame-grabs give photographers more option.

The new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV addresses many of those recent expectations, given the high marks given to of past 5D models, the new version should become the new omnipresent pro DSLR. It is the first model in the 5D series with Canon’s insanely fast ‘Dual Pixel AF’ tech, which uses phase-detection photo sites on each pixel of the sensor. Staying locked on a moving subject fluidly while capturing the video or shooting continuously should be much easier.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

It is built around a new 30.4MP CMOS sensor and uses the Digic 6+ processor. The AF sys is from the flagship 1D X Mark II and contains 61 AF points (41 of which are cross-type) with up to 24 percent expanded vertical coverage compared with the sys in the Mark III. The center point is the sensitive to -3EV in One Shot (AF-S) mode (in Live View the sensor is sensitive to -4EV with a fast lens).

Its 3.2-inch rear LCD display is now a touchscreen, that will help you lock in on subjects with a simple screen tap. And this new camera gets a brand-new feature from the Canon, dubbed as ‘Dual Pixel RAW,’ which expands the powers of its unique sensor. Like a more-limited version of the Lytro, you can tweak an image’s focal point ever so slightly after you take it.
