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

  • Proper operation cannot be guaranteed for all recording media.
  • Card compatibility based on Canon’s testing standards as of August 2016.
  • We recommend users format the memory card in camera and conduct a test prior to actually shooting 4K video.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Adding to its powerful and portable design, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera utilizes Canon’s smooth, fast and intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Featuring two photodiodes per pixel and each pixel capable of phase-difference detection autofocus, the CMOS sensor can deliver fast and accurate AF throughout approximately 80% of the image plane. Able to detect shifts in movement at the pixel level, Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables continuous automatic AF and AF tracking that enhances overall camera operation for sharp still images and smooth, accurate focus transitions in movies. Working with the EOS 5D Mark IV’s 3.2" touch panel LCD screen, Dual Pixel CMOS AF lets photographers select focus points throughout the frame with the touch of a finger, and confirm focus by zooming in on the image or enlarging stills grabbed from video recordings.

3.2" Touch Panel LCD

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera features a 1.62 million dot, low-reflection 3.2-inch Clear View LCD II monitor for bright, sharp display in a wide variety of shooting situations. The LCD’s touch panel surface facilitates fast, intuitive operation, including AF frame switching, menu and setting changes plus image magnification during Live View shooting and movie shooting. Still photographs can also be captured quickly with the touch panel’s shutter release function. A customizable Quick Control screen adds flexibility and convenience for specific users’ preferences. Image review and playback are also enhanced with the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s Clear View LCD II Monitor. Not only does the EOS 5D Mark IV’s LCD provide a high-precision image for composition and playback, but it also remains visible even when the photographer is wearing polarized sunglasses! In numerous situations in the studio and in the field, the EOS 5D Mark IV’s LCD panel is an ideal complement to its amazing TTL viewfinder.

Excellent performance up to 7.0 fps** continuous shooting speed with high-performance DIGIC 6+ Image Processor for improved speed and excellent image quality.
Up to 7.0 fps** Continuous Shooting

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is designed to keep up with the action. Its remarkable shutter, advanced AF and exposure and image processing systems help ensure virtually instantaneous response and performance at up to 7.0 fps**, even at full resolution. Whether searching for a joyous expression on a bride’s face or capturing an athlete in action, the EOS 5D Mark IV doesn’t let file size compromise the speed of capture even when bracketing exposures of a complex lighting situation, helping photographers and moviemakers attain consistently high performance in many situations.

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

DIGIC 6+ Image Processor

The powerful DIGIC 6+ Image Processor increases the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s in-camera capabilities, enabling fast operation across the board and helping to ensure that high-quality still image and 4K video recording is achieved no matter the shooting environment. It has a noise-processing algorithm that helps reduce noise at high ISO settings, and features a Digital Lens Optimizer that can automatically apply a variety of aberration and diffraction corrections as well as other corrective measures specific to the lens in use. The EOS 5D Mark IV’s power to perform numerous operations with ease is made possible in large part thanks to the amazing DIGIC 6+ Image Processor.

To complement its stellar CMOS sensor and powerful processing abilities, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera incorporates a 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system. It features up to 41 cross-type points and an extensive AF area that extends well into the top and bottom of the peripheral frame. It also has a wide subject tracking area that enhances the AF system with consistent focus tracking to capture the action at hand and includes Canon’s AI Servo AF III, which remembers the AF path and helps refine precision shot-to-shot. Low-light performance is phenomenal – the AF system’s low-intensity limit is EV -3 at the center AF point and all 61 AF points are compatible down to f/8 for excellent low-light performance, even with lens extenders attached. To help ensure that AF points and other shooting information are visible at a glance, the EOS 5D Mark IV also features Canon’s Intelligent Viewfinder II for a bright, customizable view. Whether choosing individual AF points manually or using one of the camera’s automatic AF selection modes, the EOS 5D Mark IV’s AF system is a significant part of its overall excellence.

To help deliver nearly fool-proof performance, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera employs a powerful and instant subject and light analysis system. The iSA Intelligent Scene Analysis system uses its own RGB+IR light sensor with an approximately 150,000-pixel resolution to provide the camera with immense image analysis in an instant, making necessary corrections along the way. The sensor enables Canon’s anti-flicker function, which detects the frequency and phase of a light source’s flicker (such as a fluorescent light) and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely to be well-illuminated. 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 optimize tracking. Using tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system not only helps to quickly and automatically select the ideal capture settings, but also serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5D Mark IV’s AF system.



The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is equipped with a number of advanced features designed to combat image degradation from lens aberration, focus and other characteristics that can adversely affect the quality of the final image. The EOS 5D Mark IV’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system enables capture of Dual Pixel Raw (DPRAW) files***. Images shot as DPRAWs have additional adjustment possibilities when processed with Canon’s Digital Photo Professional image processing software, which enables pixel-level adjustment and refinement for still photographs and includes Image Micro-adjustment to help maximize sharpness in detail areas, Bokeh Shift for more pleasing soft focus areas and Ghosting Reduction to help reduce aberrations and flare. The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is also equipped with a number of in-camera optical correction functions previously available only using Digital Photo Professional. It comes preloaded with aberration data particular to specific lenses, helping to eliminate the need to register lens data on previously released lenses and correcting images with virtually no delay in-camera. The EOS 5D Mark IV not only fixes peripheral brightness and chromatic aberration, but also features distortion correction and diffraction correction. Distortion correction helps resolve barrel and pincushion distortions, while diffraction correction helps to eliminate the blurring effects from diffraction that can be created when capturing an image at a small aperture. The EOS 5D Mark IV’s in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer works with the camera’s DIGIC 6+ Image Processor to help ensure these corrections can be made with virtually no effect on operational speed, even when shooting numerous successions of JPEG images, speeding up the photographer’s workflow and delivering gorgeous images right from the camera.

*** 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).
