As widely predicted, Canon has released details of its new $3499 / £3399 street price EOS 5D Mark IV canera body, and the official spec sheets tally with what has been leaked so far — in other words, that 4K 30fps MJPEG rumour is true.

    The original EOS 5D’s place in video history is that it didn’t shoot video at all

    By (David Shapton)

    The original EOS 5D that started it all

    The debate over the video capabilities of Canon’s latest EOS 5D Mark IV seems to have largely lost sight of the fact that, when the EOS 5D range first came out eleven years ago, video wasn’t even in the picture.

      The Canon 5D MK IV Is Here with 4K Video Recording and Dual Pixel Autofocus

      By Adam Plowden

      Canon 5D Mark IV Front

      The long awaited Canon 5D Mark IV makes it’s official announcement, with 4K video internal recording and dual pixel autofocus.

      After what feels like an age since the mk III was released, Canon have finally caught up with competitors in offering 4K video, 61-point auto focusing and … to the cameras feature line up. As an operator that switched from Canon to Sony for video, this is welcome news and finally puts Canon back on the map for superb quality photography and filming.

      4K video has been long awaited in the DSLR side of Canon cameras, since it’s only been offered in the high spec cinema cameras. 4K is now offered internally in different frame rates (4K Motion JPEG video DCI cinema-type 4096 x 2160, but cropped image not full frame), with 60p HD resolution and 120fps in 720p too. (HD is recorded in full frame)

      The colour bit depth is still 4:2:2 8-bit. This is recorded at 500Mbps MJPEG format, which is also used in the IDX II and 1DC models, that have 4K as a video recording resolution. 8.8mpx stills can be pulled from the 4K video as well.

      The dual pixel RAW offers photographers the option to choose their focus points after capture, much like the Litro Illum. You now have the option of post focusing.

      With updated 4K video, advanced auto focusing features for the video shooter (Dual Pixel CMOS AF for responsive and smooth AF during video or live view shooting ), Canon is back in the race. But is it enough or too late? Let us know what you think in the comment secession.
