Canon just announced perhaps one of the most anxiously awaited new cameras in years — the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. I got a chance to do a shoot with it (see the video below), and I have to say, it’s not only probably the best camera Canon’s ever made, it’s arguably one of the best cameras ever made, period. I just fell in love with it!
First, check out the video where I go over all the main specs (and I share a few shots from my first shoot with it).
That video covered all the really big features, but…
there’s all sorts of other cool stuff in this camera, so head over to Canon’s site to read the press release about all the other stuff, like built-in light flicker correction and a new noise algorithm, and enhanced scene recognition and face detection capabilities, and all that type of stuff.
In the meantime, here’s some more picture of the body, which look astonishingly like the old 5D Mark III body!
Above: The back view which look very familiar.
Above: Side view with lens attached (seriously, where you would be without these helpful captions)?
Above: What could this be? Wait! Wait! I know! Is it — the top of the camera? Yes, you are correct (said the council on the glaringingly obvious. So why did I make these captions at all? Because it looks better!).
Canon also announced a couple of new lens (one that I am particularly interested in is the newly updated 16-35mm and they also announced a 24-105mm. Both expected in October I believe).
OK, that’s the big news today. I’m in Indianapolis with my seminar today. I expect to meet a bunch of very excited Canon shooters there today!
