The Canon 5D Mark IV is equipped with a powerful 30.4 megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor, delivering professional and precise shots. Image detail is sharp with the ability to shoot 7 frames per second. With high resolution, you can get creative with cropping sections in your frame. The detailed quality in the 4K video will leave you stunned with the motion pictures you can create. Being able to shoot in either RAW or JPEG enables you to edit and enhance your photography and videos post-production.
Canon’s DIGIC 6+ processor captures low light and shadows with expert detail. Enhanced noise processing algorithms enable you to shoot in any light conditions, even when it’s dim and dark. The precision captured in low light is enabled with the 5D Mark IV’s extensive ISO range of 100-32000 expandable from 50-102400. Whether it’s mood lighting at a wedding, fairy lights in the outdoors or flickering candlelight, you’ll be able to capture your subjects in the moment with clarity and detail.
Autofocus accuracy is achieved with a 61-point high frequency autofocus. The 41 cross-type points and EV3 and EV4 sensitivity will give you confidence in a range of settings to produce professional-level images every time. The high resolution 3.2 inch LCD touch screen is combined with an autofocus area selection button, providing quick autofocus at the touch of your fingertips.
Create professional-level motion pictures with the full 1080P HD video recorder in-built in the Canon 5D Mark IV. The camera records movement up to 30 frames per second, delivering precise and cinema-grade motion pictures. Speed up motion with built-in time lapse for night scenes, or slow it down when you’ve captured a fast-action sporting moment. If you want to take a frame from your video, you can extract 8.8MP JPEG stills from your 4K videos.
Connect to your mobile devices with built-in near-field communication (NFC) directly from your camera. With Wi-Fi built-in, you can share your images and videos with your social media network using the Canon Camera Connect app. GPS tracking enables you to pinpoint exactly where and when you took the shot, even when you’re on the other side of the world.

It’s a good idea to spend some time customising your new camera to make it easier to use in the long run. It will pay off when it comes to getting the most out its functionality. The Canon 5D IV lets you customise your settings and buttons easily from the menu button.
It’s easy to switch the mode dial on the top of the camera to M for Manual. This will give you full manual control over all settings on the camera. Check the user guide if you'd like to set up a custom shooting mode.
We recommend adjusting the set button to magnification so that you can easily zoom in on your image to check the focus is accurate – you’ll only need one hand instead of two! You can also zoom using the touch screen.
You can simply go to the live view button and flick the button towards the red video camera symbol to start and stop recording. This is really useful when you want to take a quick video without having to go into settings.
When you’re out on a long shoot, it goes without saying that your battery will eventually die and there isn’t much you can do about that. Having a spare battery handy is essential. You never know when you’ll be in the perfect moment and your battery runs out.
Keep your new camera safe by carrying it around in a bag or case that suits your needs. You can never have too many bags. A blower brush is also a good idea to keep your camera clean and dust free.
