Stay focused on the action, with an expanded 61-point AF system that tracks even the most erratic of subjects. In the EOS 5D Mark IV, the 61 AF points1 have been given a wider area in which to operate – an 8 percent more vertical expansion in the central area, and 24 percent more vertical expansion in the peripheral area – giving greater freedom in where subjects can be placed when composing.
With a highly-sensitive AF sensor the focus performance on the EOS 5D Mark IV is assured, even down to light levels as low as EV-32. This is further improved to EV-43 when shooting in Live View with Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
If you are a sports or wildlife photographer, you will often have to use super telephoto lenses with extenders to get closer to your subjects. With a maximum of 61 points with 21 cross-AF type points at f/81, high precision focusing is made that much easier.
The EOS 5D Mark IV uses a dedicated 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor to carry out highly accurate exposure metering. This sensor also works in conjunction with the camera’s AF system to help detect and track coloured objects and perform face recognition.
The EOS 5D Mark IV features the EOS iTR AF system, which greatly enhances the subject tracking performance. Customise the tracking based on your needs with different modes for when focusing and tracking a face or a different subject.
Canon’s AI servo AF III features an AF algorithm that, improves the tracking sensitivity in scenes where subject movements may occur suddenly.
Six customisable AF Case study settings help you choose the most appropriate option for your subject such as Tracking Sensitivity, Acceleration/Deceleration tracking and AF Point Auto Switching.
The EOS 5D Mark IV detects flicker frequency of light sources and adapts the shooting timings to capture the image near peak brightness to reduce flicker effects. This function works with a flicker frequency of 100Hz and 120Hz and has an improved algorithm to prevent the incorrect detection of flickering light.
A new AF area selection button on the back of the EOS 5D Mark IV makes it easy to switch autofocus points with the camera still held to your eye.
