    Detailed Features

    16.1 MP CMOS sensor

    A Canon designed and manufactured 16.1MP APS-H sized CMOS sensor produces incredibly low noise images in the lowest of light. The sensor captures outstanding detail ideal for A3 prints or larger, even after cropping.

    Max 10fps with upto 121 JPEG frame burst

    Capture every moment of action with the EOS-1D Mark IV’s maximum 10fps shooting speed, and continuous bursts of up to 121 large JPEG images (28 RAW).

    45-point AF system

    A high-precision 45 point AF system featuring 39 cross type sensors debuts in the EOS-1D Mark IV. Ensuring accurate focusing with fast aperture lenses, 39 high sensitivity cross-type sensors are employed, suitable for lenses with an aperture of f/2.8 or faster.

    Full HD movie recording

    Combining exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot Full HD (1080p) video with user selectable frame rates, EOS-1D Mark IV offers huge versatility. For more control users can manually set exposure or choose to shoot at 720p or VGA resolution. An HDMI output allows High Definition playback of footage and images.

    Low light shooting

    Thanks to the EOS-1D Mark IV’s exceptionally wide ISO range of 100 to 12800 – expandable up to an incredible ISO 102400 - shooting need never stop even in the darkest of conditions.

    3.0” Clear View II LCD with Live View mode

    With its high resolution 920,000 dot 3.0” Clear View II LCD screen, detailed checks on images and video are easy. Using a solid structure construction, reflections are minimised, allowing Live View to be used under any conditions.

    Dual “DIGIC 4”

    Canon’s Dual “DIGIC 4” processors enable high speed processing of the high resolution images from EOS-1D Mark IV’s CMOS sensor, delivering 14-bit image processing with smooth gradations and natural looking colours. The Dual “DIGIC 4” provides advanced Noise Reduction when shooting at higher ISO speeds and instant startup times.

    EOS Integrated Cleaning System

    Canon’s built-in dust prevention system offers a professional and comprehensive solution in protecting images against the effects of dust: reduction of internal dust generation; an in-camera sensor cleaning mechanism; automatic removal of dust spots with the included Digital Photo Professional software.

    Full EF and EX Speedlite compatibility

    Canon’s full range of EF lenses and EX-series Speedlites is available to the EOS-1D Mark IV user. Create a system tailor-made to your photographic needs.
