The EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system enables capture of Dual Pixel RAW (DPRAW) files***. Images shot as DPRAWs offer advanced photographers significantly more parameters for post-production adjustment with Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software. DPRAW files processed in Digital Photo Professional can be adjusted with functions that include Image Micro-adjustment to help reduce blur and maximize sharpness in detail areas, Bokeh Shift for more pleasing soft focus areas and Ghosting Reduction to help minimize aberrations and flare.
*** When lens diaphragm setting is fully open, adjustment volume and compensation effect are emphasized. Sufficient adjustment volume and compensation effect may not be achieved, depending on lens in use and shooting conditions. Adjustment volume and compensation effect vary depending on camera position (landscape or portrait).
In-Camera Digital Lens Optimizer and Diffraction Correction
The EOS 5D Mark IV camera is equipped with a number of in-camera optical correction functions, previously available only using Digital Photo Professional software, for more clarity, less distortion and less light fallout in the corners of the frame. It comes preloaded with aberration data particular to specific lenses, helping the EOS 5D Mark IV camera to correct images in-camera with virtually no delay. Able to correct for peripheral brightness and chromatic aberration, the EOS 5D Mark IV also features distortion correction to help remedy barrel and pincushion distortions and diffraction correction to correct the blurring effects from diffraction that can be created when capturing an image at a small aperture. Effectively compensating for optical quirks from the lens, the EOS 5D Mark IV produces clean files that are ready for print or display, quickly and easily.
ISO Range of 100–32000 (expandable to 50–102400)
Featuring an ISO range of 100–32000 (expandable to 50–102400), theEOS 5D Mark IV camera thrives at low-light photography. Whether shooting at night, in inclement weather or even in dimly lit auditoriums, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s sensor has an improved S/N ratio plus an improved noise-processing algorithm to deliver high-level light sensitivity, without compromising image quality. In low light, or when simply suppressing camera shake blur, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s extended ISO range helps it to excel in a wide range of lighting situations.
4K Frame Capture*
To confirm focus, review compositions and even to save still photos for printing or sharing, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera can save individual frames from 4K video as new 8.8 million pixel still image files, which is easily done using on-screen commands during video playback.
* Saving a still image from a single movie frame may not result in the same image quality as a normal still image.
61 Point AF
The EOS 5D Mark IV has a new AF sensor, with 61 AF points covering a broader vertical area of the image than its predecessor. This AF system delivers excellent accuracy and performance, with up to 41 cross-type AF points available, and extra-high-precision AF at up to 25 points on the AF array (when wide-aperture lenses are used). Low-light sensitivity of this AF sensor is also improved, with the center point delivering AF at levels down to EV -3. AF with tele extenders at f/8 maximum effective apertures is also greatly improved — AF is possible at up to all 61 AF points, when specific Canon telephoto lenses are combined with Canon's Version III EF tele extenders.
150,000 Pixel RBG + IR Metering Sensor
To determine and maintain proper exposure, especially in varying light sources with moving subjects, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s iSA (Intelligent Scene Analysis) system has a dedicated RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. It provides the camera with quick and comprehensive image analysis. The EOS 5D Mark IV also incorporates Canon's Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to maintain subject tracking.
Especially helpful when shooting under fluorescent lights, the EOS 5D Mark IV camera’s anti-flicker function detects the frequency and phase of a light source’s flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely to be properly illuminated.
