Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Review

 

The Canon EOS 1D Mark IV is the fifth generation of Canon's speed-orientated range of professional DSLRs. It retains the two-grip form factor of the original, 4MP EOS-1D launched in September 2001 (itself building on the integrated grip of the film-era...

Highly detailed 16MP images in a wide range of conditions ; 10 frames per second shooting make it the fastest full-res camera on the market ; Compatible with the most comprehensive lens range on the market ; Excellent AF performance during our testing...

Movie mode (and live view to a lesser extent), feels tacked-on, rather than integrated ; Level of AF customization makes optimization challenging ; Placement and interaction of AF customization options unhelpful ; White balance isn't brilliant in...

Putting the EOS-1D Mk3's demons behind it Canon has produced an upgrade that's not just better, but delivers an incredibly versatile tool that blurs the 'sports camera/studio camera' line more than ever before. The Nikon D3S might beat it in very low...

As the company's more popular professional camera in terms of units sold, Canon's 1D Mark IV came a little early in its development cycle with two major improvements, along with a resolution increase. Movie mode was important to compete with the Nikon...

Canon brings forth EOS-1D X DSLR, takes top honors of Mark IV

 

If you thought that Canon would take a while to replace the EOS-1Ds Mark III and the EOS-1D Mark IV then here's a surprise. The EOS-1D X storms in with substantial goodness of an 18-megapixel camera, dial DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processors, 14-bit A/D data...

Canon EOS 1D Mark 4 Review

 

The 1D Mark 4 is a joy to shoot with and an extremely well built and great performing dSLR - a true pro photography tool. We'd like button placement to be a little more optimised (like the 7D), but that aside, there's little to complain about. The real...

Very well built with good environment sealing, Great low light performance, the sensor is noise free at ISO 3200, Excellent resolution and sharpness, Fast and responsive

Expensive - some full frame cameras are cheaper, Bulky and heavy, Button placement not as good as the 7D, Not compatible with EF-S lenses

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Review

 

Only for the pros.

Incredibly fast, Great Auto-Focus, Superb HD video recording

Expensive, Complex to understand

Let’s face it, Canon has been around since 1933, and if you are doing something for 80 years you are supposed be good at it, and Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is a prime example of that. We all agree that digital photography has changed the world, there are...

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

 

The Mark IV weighs 1.4kg, packs a 16.1-megapixel image sensor, dual DIGIC IV image processors and a 45-point auto focus system

There’s nothing that holds a candle to the Mark IV's still image captures. Its superbly detailed, high resolution images will blow you away.

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV Digital SLR Camera Review

 

With full 1080P resolution at 24 to 30 frames per second and low noise capabilities, Canon once again gives filmmakers a compelling reason to trade in their camcorders for a DSLR.

Shallow DoF, Many frame rate and resolution choices, Excellent build and external controls

No manual audio control, Complex autofocus, No dedicated switch between stills and video
