EOS 5D Mark IV: Image Quality

Stellar Image Quality

Stellar Image Quality

From high-resolution stills to 4K video, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera‘s full-frame sensor is poised to deliver phenomenal results with efficiency and ease, no matter the assignment.

30.4 MP Full-Frame Sensor

30.4 MP Full-Frame Sensor

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera has a full-frame, high-speed CMOS sensor that delivers beautiful images of weddings, wildlife, sports and more. Measuring approximately 36.0mm x 24.0mm, the same size and ratio as a 35mm film frame, it records approximately 30.1 Megapixels at normal ISOs of up to 32000. It also captures tremendous still and 4K video clips suitable for significant post-processing, retouching and cropping. This brilliant sensor adds Dual Pixel CMOS AF capabilities as well, enabling the EOS 5D Mark IV to focus quickly and accurately during live-view shooting, capturing the action as it unfolds. At light levels as low as EV -4, Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables continuous automatic AF and AF tracking at the pixel level in more places and more lighting situations, enhancing overall camera operation for sharp still images and smooth, precise focus transitions in videos.

4K Video

Capable of recording Digital Cinema (DCI) standard 4K (Motion JPEG) videos of 4096 x 2160 pixels at up to 30 fps, the EOS 5D Mark IV is an extraordinary camera for movies, news, weddings and more. It’s also able to shoot Full HD video at up to 60 fps and HD video at up to 120 fps, and supports both MOV and MP4 formats for HD and Full HD right out of the camera for easy distribution or for use in editing software.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Touch Panel Operation

Dual Pixel AF with Touch Panel Operation

Featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Touch AF, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera delivers quick, smooth AF throughout 80% of the picture area for excellent subject tracking while shooting video. Used in conjunction with the camera’s touch screen, it’s easy to select the location and size of the AF frame, which can be especially useful when the subject is off center or for dramatic focus shifts.

Up to 7.0 fps Continuous Shooting

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is designed to capture the action. Its remarkable shutter, advanced AF, exposure and image processing systems help ensure virtually instantaneous response and performance at up to 7.0 fps**, even at full resolution. A cam-operated Mirror Vibration Control System with a high-torque motor helps suppress mirror impact for stable, high-speed shooting, while the AF and AE systems help ensure accurate exposure and focus tracking, even at high speed. Whether immortalizing a bird in flight or a father’s first dance with the bride, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera delivers a combination of performance and image quality that’s ideally suited to the needs of advanced photographers.

** Continuous shooting speed may vary depending on the shutter speed, the aperture, the lens being used, the battery charge and various camera settings.

Dual Pixel RAW

Dual Pixel RAW

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system enables capture of Dual Pixel RAW (DPRAW) files***. Images shot as DPRAWs offer advanced photographers significantly more parameters for post-production adjustment with Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software. DPRAW files processed in Digital Photo Professional can be adjusted with functions that include Image Micro-adjustment to help reduce blur and maximize sharpness in detail areas, Bokeh Shift for more pleasing soft focus areas and Ghosting Reduction to help minimize aberrations and flare.

*** When lens diaphragm setting is fully open, adjustment volume and compensation effect are emphasized. Sufficient adjustment volume and compensation effect may not be achieved, depending on lens in use and shooting conditions. Adjustment volume and compensation effect vary depending on camera position (landscape or portrait).

In-camera Digital Lens Optimizer and Diffraction Correction

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is equipped with a number of in-camera optical correction functions, previously available only using Digital Photo Professional software, for more clarity, less distortion and less light fallout in the corners of the frame. It comes preloaded with aberration data particular to specific lenses, helping the EOS 5D Mark IV camera to correct images in-camera with virtually no delay. Able to correct for peripheral brightness and chromatic aberration, the EOS 5D Mark IV also features distortion correction to help remedy barrel and pincushion distortions and diffraction correction to correct the blurring effects from diffraction that can be created when capturing an image at a small aperture. Effectively compensating for optical quirks from the lens, the EOS 5D Mark IV produces clean files that are ready for print or display, quickly and easily.

Featuring an ISO range of 100–32000 (expandable to 50–102400), the EOS 5D Mark IV camera thrives at low-light photography. Whether shooting at night, in inclement weather or even in dimly lit auditoriums, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s sensor has an improved S/N ratio plus an improved noise-processing algorithm to deliver high-level light sensitivity, without compromising image quality. In low light, or when simply suppressing camera shake blur, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s extended ISO range helps it to excel in a wide range of lighting situations.

4K Frame Capture

To confirm focus, review compositions and even to save still photos for printing or sharing, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera can save individual frames from 4K video as new 8.8 million pixel still image files, which is easily done using on-screen commands during video playback.

* Saving a still image from a single movie frame may not result in the same image quality as a normal still image.
