Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test

Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test

The Canon 5D Mark III was released in spring of 2012 and it still proves to be one of the best DSLR workhorses for portrait, landscape, and event photographers. The 5D Mark IV expands on the Mark III’s many features with 4K video, a boost in megapixels, and a slick 3.2″ touchscreen LCD. The AF system is improved over the 5D Mark III (and even over the more recent 5Ds) thanks to expanded vertical points coverage. It also sports Dual Pixel AF in addition to the touch AF of the LCD, which aids in beautifully smooth focus shifts when recording video.

There are a couple of areas where the 5D Mark IV lacks, however, as you’ll learn about in the field test footage above.
