The Canon 5D Mark Four is the world’due south most universal DSLR. It is competitive for sports and action as well as for wedding, nature, portrait, landscape and product photography.

With 7 FPS on tap, the 5D Mk Four is fast enough for only well-nigh anything other than dedicated full-time sports coverage for which you need a 14 FPS 1DX Mk II.

With xxx total-frame megapixels, it’s also state of the art in resolution. Nikon’s highest resolution camera today, the old D810 from 2014, has substantially the aforementioned resolution but just runs at 5 FPS. The merely photographic camera with significantly more than resolution than this 5D Mk 4 is Canon’s 5DS and 5DSR, which are essentially a college resolution only slower version of this 5D Mk Iv.

This is why I’m then impressed that Canon chose to introduce this 5D Mk Iv. Canon didn’t demand to; information technology already has this covered in the 5D Mk Three that runs at half dozen FPS, and the 5DSR has more than resolution merely less speed at well-nigh the same cost. The 5D series sells very few cameras compared to Canon’south APS-C DSLRs, and so nosotros ought to be glad that Catechism actively develops new models that don’t do much for Canon’due south profits (and eat into sales of other Catechism cameras), only give us all more than camera choices.

Bravo Catechism!

Autofocus is every bit we await for the 5D series: fast enough, but it’s no 1DX Mk II.

Specifically, like all Canons it’southward as fast as can exist if yous select just 1 AF point, but if you set up AF Area Select to Automobile, then the 5D Marker IV doesn’t auto-select or track among all the AF areas very quickly. This is in stark contrast to the 1DX Mk Two, which auto-selects and tracks amidst all its AF areas pretty much instantly. In other words, the 5D4 focuses in and out as fast as every other camera, however the 5D Mark IV’due south power to select among the AF areas by itself (if you use this feature as I do), isn’t that fast.

It’s as skillful as the 5DSR; no better and no worse. Either of these 5D series is slow in dim low-cal, peculiarly if y’all expect the camera to select the AF area for you.

With the 100~400mm f/four.five~5.6 L IS II and the 1.4x extender II, just a key horizontal stripe of nine AF zones work. The great news is that they are outlined so we know exactly where they are.

With the 100~400mm f/4.5~5.6 L IS 2 and the 2x extender II, there is no autofocus considering the combination is also dull (f/9~11).

The active AF areas are black LCD boxes that tin block our view of the discipline. They can light in carmine in the dark, but information technology’south nowhere near as nice equally the true LED active AF areas of the 1DX Mk Two.

In that location are also settable dark LCD text overlays forth the bottom of the ground glass to warn of diverse settings.


Wink exposure is practiced; no unlike from other Canon DSLRs.

The 5D4 is smart plenty to optimize exposure and EXIF information on the fly if you wink hasn’t recycled from the previous shot. If the flash isn’t fix all the same, the 5D Mark iv takes the picture, exposes it correctly without the wink, and records the prototype with correct EXIF exposure and “flash not fired” information.

High & Depression ISO Performance & Sample Image Files

High ISO performance is spectacular. Regular ISOs run from ISO 100~32,000. It can also run as low as ISO 50 or as high as ISO 102,400 (H2), but but if you enable these at Bill of fare > Photographic camera 2 > ISO SPEED SETTINGS > RANGE FOR STILLS.

Other cameras like the Nikon D5 let setting foolishly high push button ISOs that look atrocious and are included only for marketing purposes, while this 5D Mk 4 looks pretty good at every ISO setting, including H1 and H2. As you’ll run into in the complete images, the pictures all wait the aforementioned at every ISO at normal spider web and print sizes, and if you crop them to show extremely high magnification (45 x 67″ or 115 x 175 cm prints), the highest ISOs never go noisy or blotchy; they just get dirtier and lose fine details and texture simply visible at high magnifications.

In other words, while other cameras like the Canon 1DX Mk II and Nikon D5 tin can be set higher, they wait much worse. The 5D MK Four looks as good at ISO 102,400 every bit these other cameras.

Mechanical Sound and Racket

This 5D Mk IV is as quiet as the 5DS and 5DS R. Information technology is much quieter than the 1DX Mk 2.

In unmarried shot or 3 FPS modes, the 5DS and 5DS R are just a
bit quieter than this 5D Mk four.

At 7 FPS this 5D Mk IV is a bit louder than the 5DS and 5DS R are at v FPS considering the 5D4 is running faster.

In quiet mode this 5D Mk IV is a petty scrap quieter than the 5DS and 5DS R, once more non different enough to notice unless you take them both in your easily for comparison.


It’s the same every bit other current Canons. Simply similar the height-of-the-line 1DX Mk Ii, a zoomed playback image doesn’t go sharp as you scroll around until afterwards you release the thumb nubbin.

The 5D Mk Iv is irksome when swapping among Big JPG images, taking 850 milliseconds each.

Every sample will be different.

My 5D Mk IV runs fast 1.66 seconds per twenty-four hour period (51 seconds per month).

Pro DSLRs Compared.

Compared to the Canon 5D Mk III

The 5D Mk III is the older model, introduced in 2012. Information technology’s besides a fantastic camera, just 1 FPS slower and with slightly lower resolution (there is negligible visible divergence between 22MP and 30MP). I’d pick a 5D Mk 3 over a Nikon D810 whatever day.

The 5D Mark 3 lacks features like GPS, WiFi and flicker shoot-through, and otherwise takes the same spectacular pictures. If money matters, by all ways get a 5D Mk III, and if you can afford it, you’ll love the new features of this Mk IV.

See Is Information technology Worth It.

Compared to the Canon 5DS and 5DSR

The 5DS and 5D Mk IV sell for the same cost.

At that place is no deviation other then the price between the 5DS and the 5DSR. The images are indistinguishable; the R is but a way for Canon to become more of our money — but you’ll probably recoup the $200 departure at resale time.

I prefer my 5DSR because I gear up my Chiliad-Fn button for real-time in-finder still-prototype cropping, a feature not in the 5D Mk Iv. I don’t use the Mk IV’south GPS, WiFi or touch screen absent-minded in my 5DSR, merely I often exercise like to shoot in 1:1 or 4:5 cropped sensor modes in my 5DSR.

In actual utilise, 30MP looks the aforementioned as 50MP.

7 FPS isn’t that much faster than v FPS if you’re not a dedicated sports shooter, and if you are, you need the 10 FPS 7D Mk Two or fourteen FPS 1DX Mk Ii, not the 5D Mk IV.

It’due south a coin flip, which is why the prices are similar. Get the 5DSR if still subjects are your thing, and get the 5D MK IV if occasional sports and action shooting are more important.

Canon has really hit it out of the park again with this 5D Marker 4. The only bad thing is that it costs the same as the 5DS only to confuse you. I adopt the 5DS (or the identical merely $200 more expensive 5DSR) considering I prefer its in-camera equally-shot crop options, while if you lot adopt more frames-per-second, WiFi or GPS, you’ll prefer this Marking IV.

If you
shoot sports and action, get the 7D Mk Ii or 1DX Mk II. Sports, news and action shooters live for speed. On the other hand, if you
shoot things that don’t move for Sunset Magazine or big gallery shows, the 5DS/R remains state of the art for nature and landscape just for its slightly higher resolution.

Nearly of united states shoot a little of everything, then this new 5D Mark Iv will be a lilliputian of the best of everything. I ain some cameras for speed and others for resolution, and at present this 5D Mk IV does it all in i camera. It’s got well-nigh of the insane resolution of the 5DS/R, with more speed than whatever other 5D or 6D serial camera ever.

This Mk Four excels at both speed and resolution in a manner that no other camera from anyone has ever done. There’southward no reason not to go this camera; fifty-fifty if all y’all shoot is landscapes and exam charts or just sports, it has no weak points other than having no built-in flash, missing in all of the 5D serial.


I use my Canon 320EX flash with my Marking Four. It has more than enough power and is pocket-sized and works fast.


The but lenses you need are a tele and a midrange or wide zoom.

The 100-400mm 50 IS Two is the country-of-the-art in tele lenses. Information technology is the world’s best for nature, mural and especially sports. It focuses so closely it eliminates the need for a macro, and is the fastest focusing tele I’ve ever used.

Add your choice of a midrange zoom, and if yous practise nature, landscapes or interior, add the 16-35mm L IS.

Run into besides Best Canon Lenses, simply all you need for everything are the 100~400 and a midrange or 16-35mm lens.

Where to get yours

I got mine at Adorama; I’d also get it at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield, and it also comes equally different kits with lenses.

This ad-costless website’s biggest source of back up is when you utilize those or any of these links to approved sources when you lot get
anything, regardless of the state in which you lot alive. Canon does non seal its boxes in any way, so
buy at retail or whatsoever other source not on my personally approved list since you’ll take no way of knowing if you’re missing accessories, getting a lacking, damaged, returned, store demo or used camera. I apply the stores I exercise because they send from secure remote warehouses where no i gets to touch your new photographic camera before you practice. Buy only from the canonical sources I use myself for the best prices, service, render policies and selection.

Thanks for helping me help you!
