In additional EOS 5D Mark IV was introduced by Canon in August 2016. It belongs to the Professional DSLRs category.
Canon is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Canon.
The EOS 5D Mark IV has a Full frame CMOS sensor with size of 36 x 24 mm² (1.42" x 0.94").

The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.
The EOS 5D Mark IV's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 30 megapixel. The resolution is far above average and will easily be sufficient for years to come. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.
|Sensor area||36.00 x 24.00mm²|
(1.42" x 0.94")
|Resolution (physical)||31.70 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||30.40 megapixel|
|Pixel size||28.70 µm²|
The EOS 5D Mark IV has an optical viewfinder with a penta prism. Viewfinders with a penta prism are typical for enthusiast and professional DSLRs. The viewfinder covers 100% of the field of view and has a magnification of 0.71x, an above average value for a viewfinder like this.
|Type||Optical (Penta prism)|
The EOS 5D Mark IV's shutter speed varies from 1/8000s to 30s.
|Max. shutter speed||1/8000s|
|Min. shutter speed||30s|
The EOS 5D Mark IV's sensitivity is from 100 ISO and 32000 ISO.
Also, Canon's sensitivity can be boosted to 102400. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.
|Min. sensitivity||100 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||32000 ISO|
The EOS 5D Mark IV supports all general exposure modes.
The Canon allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The EOS 5D Mark IV's auto focus processor uses 61 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in sports).
Manual focus is also possible with the Canon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The EOS 5D Mark IV doesn't feature a built-in flash. That is not unsusual in this camera category.
A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Canon's hotshoe.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features a monitor with a diagonal of 81.00mm (3.2 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.62 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.
Unfortunately, the EOS 5D Mark IV's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
The EOS 5D Mark IV's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.
