The EOS 5D Mark IV camera incorporates Canon’s impressive technological and engineering know-how into an SLR that not only delivers stunning still photographs and 4K video, but does so whether taking portraits in the studio or capturing them on location in the rain.
The EOS 5D Mark IV has a new AF sensor, with 61 AF points covering a broader vertical area of the image than its predecessor. This AF system delivers excellent accuracy and performance, with up to 41 cross-type AF points available, and extra-high-precision AF at up to 25 points on the AF array (when wide-aperture lenses are used). Low-light sensitivity of this AF sensor is also improved, with the center point delivering AF at levels down to EV -3. AF with tele extenders at f/8 maximum effective apertures is also greatly improved — AF is possible at up to all 61 AF points, when specific Canon telephoto lenses are combined with Canon's Version III EF tele extenders.
To determine and maintain proper exposure, especially in varying light sources with moving subjects, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s iSA (Intelligent Scene Analysis) system has a dedicated RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. It provides the camera with quick and comprehensive image analysis. The EOS 5D Mark IV also incorporates Canon's Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to maintain subject tracking.
Especially helpful when shooting under fluorescent lights, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s anti-flicker function detects the frequency and phase of a light source’s flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely to be properly illuminated.
For ease and comfort in all day shooting, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder II offers a bright, customizable view that includes AF points, an electronic level and numerous relevant camera settings.
Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity^, the EOS 5D Mark IV can be easily set up to operate remotely, with control of select camera settings from compatible mobile devices. Image review and transfer are fast and convenient, without even having to take the camera out of its bag.

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera has built-in GPS^^ to help photographers and filmmakers automatically tag their images with location data. This sophisticated system can also time sync with Universal Time Code (UTC) via satellites around the globe.
^^ In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated.
The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is designed to perform where the action is, no matter the conditions. Not only is it lightweight for easy portability, but it also features a robust structural design. Its dust- and water-resistance is enhanced with numerous seals around the camera’s buttons, ports and lens mount.^^^
^^^ Compartment covers, terminal covers or any other camera components that can be opened must be closed properly to maximize dust-resistant and drip-resistant performance.
The EOS 5D Mark IV camera incorporates a number of refinements for reliable, durable operation, such as moving the remote controller port to the front of the camera and including a cable protector for the USB 3.0 Micro B port. A new AF Area Selection button has been added, which can be customized to allow direct changes in the size of the AF Area by simply pressing it inward.
Additional information can be added to each image, with up to 39 possible types of IPTC data available. This data is entered into Canon's EOS Utility software, and then uploaded into the camera. Once in-camera, it can be active or disabled using the camera's menu. A well-established staple of the photojournalism industry, this added IPTC data provides many EOS 5D Mark IV camera users the ability to add detailed information to each image, including caption data. Numerous third-party browsing and image-editing software programs can use this data for detailed keyword searches, and other purposes.
