Canon EOS 5D Mark IV announced with 30MP sensor and Dual Pixel AF

By on

Canon has officially announced the EOS 5D Mark IV digital SLR camera. It has become the fourth generation of the company’s full-frame DSLR for enthusiast and professional photographers.

Featuring a 30.4 megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF, it significantly extends the still and video capabilities the series has become known for. The camera’s AF coverage, sensitivity and lens compatibility has been expanded in-line with the EOS-1D X Mark II and the maximum frame rate boosted to seven frames per second.

The 30-megapixel CMOS sensor allows for fast phase-detection autofocus in video and continuous focus for stills shooting in live view. Video can be captured in the DCI (4096 x 2160) 4K format at up to 30p. And up to 60p in 1080, and 120p in 720. 4K video is captured in the high quality but inefficient Motion JPEG format.

The EOS 5D Mark IV is also the first EOS camera to premiere the innovative Dual Pixel RAW file format. It allows photographers to fine-tune images in post-production. So they adjust or correct the point of sharpness, shifting the foreground bokeh or reducing image ghosting.
