Canon EOS 5D Mark IV launched for ₹2,54,995; features 4K video, improved AF, Wi-Fi and NFC


Canon announced the new EOS 5D Mark IV last week, four years since the launch of its very well-received predecessor, the EOS 5D Mark III. The EOS 5D Mark III went on to become one of the most popular professional cameras in the market, a mainstay in the hands of photojournalists, photographers, and even videographers. Under the hood, the new EOS 5D Mark IV features some significant upgrades – 4K video, built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, GPS, Dual-Pixel AF technology, which we first saw on the EOS 70D, and a touch-sensitive 3.2-inch LCD.

The new EOS 5D Mark IV sports a 30.4-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and uses the DIGIC 6+ processor. Standard ISO range for the EOS 5D Mark IV is 100-32,000, expandable to 50-102,400. The camera lets you shoot 4K video at 25/30p in addition to Full HD video at up to 60p, and HD video at up to 120p. The camera also allows for 4K-frame grabs, which effectively gives you 30fps stills shooting with autofocus.

It has a continuous shooting speed of up to 7fps. The EOS 5D Mark IV features Canon’s proprietary Dual-Pixel CMOS AF,  with 61 AF points including 41 cross-type points, which promises a significant improvement in precision and speed compared to its predecessor. The 5D Mark IV allows you to continuously focus in Live View while capturing stills, a first for Canon’s full-frame cameras. Dual-Pixel RAW is a new feature that allows you to micro-adjust focus after having shot an image.

The new 5D Mark IV costs ₹2,54,995 for the body only. With the 24-70mm IS USM lens, the camera is priced at ₹3,06,995, and ₹3,24,995 with the 24-105mm IS II USM lens kit.
