Camera Labs tested the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. From the conclusion:
Canon’s EOS 5D Mark IV is the body many photographers have been waiting for, upgrading key aspects of the best-selling Mark III, while maintaining its core-premise of capturing great quality stills and video. Many of the upgrades were expected – necessary even – such as 4k video, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and built-in Wifi, but it’s great to also find a large touchscreen and built-in GPS receiver, while the boost in resolution, improved AF and quicker burst shooting are useful upgrades to the core features. The new Dual Pixel RAW mode also shows Canon thinking how it can exploit existing technology and while the adjustments can be subtle to say the least, some results hint at intriguing future possibilities.
Ultimately the 5D Mark IV does its job by bringing the four and a half year old Mark III completely up to date. Indeed it’s the ideal upgrade for Mark III owners, delivering a familiar operational experience but with significantly better performance in just about every regard. Read the review…
