There’s a reason 5D cameras have always proved popular with enthusiasts and professional photographers alike - they’re very good. The latest version from Canon, the 5D Mark IV
, builds on all the best features of previous generations and steps it up to the next level.
The 5D Mark IV is a top performer, and is capable of producing some wonderful images; there’s even an innovative new feature that lets you tweak focus should you get it ever so slightly wrong.
Canon says that it doesn’t want existing 5D users to have to start learning how to use a new camera from scratch, so it designed the 5D Mark IV with the Mark III as its base template. Buttons and dials are placed sensibly around the camera, and it’s a very comfortable camera to use. 4K video recording is also included, as well as other great modern features such as a touch-sensitive screen and built-in Wi-Fi.
This camera is capable of shooting in a wide range of conditions – but right now, you’ll pay a premium for it. Hopefully, the cost of the 5D Mark IV will come down over the next few months as the markets stabilise.
