Canon just unveiled the 4th generation of the 5D, their iconic full-frame DSLR camera which was first launched in 2005. And for those of you who were hoping the 5D Mark IV would live up to expectations then rest assured — your dreams have officially come true. Now equipped with GPS, shoots in 4K, has built-in WiFi and NFC connectivity, as well as a touchscreen that allows you to pinch-and-zoom into the preview image or touch on the precise area in the photo you want to focus.
Sean O’Kane of The Verge writes, “The Mark IV employs an all-new 30.4-megapixel sensor, has a native ISO range of 100-32,000 (which is expandable to 50-102,400), and uses Canon’s Digic 6+ image processor. It gets a small bump up in shooting speed, too — 7 frames per second versus 6 on the Mark III. While the Mark IV has the same size 3.2-inch LCD screen as the Mark III, the resolution gets a bump up to 1.62 million dots.”
The camera comes with a modest price tag of $3,499 (most likely worth every penny). You can learn more at TheVerge.com and check out some images of the 5D Mark IV, as well as a video from Canon. To buy your own you can visit USA.Canon.com.
