Canon has launched the highly-awaited EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR capable of shooting 4K videos in India. This camera is the first variant in the 5D series that can record 4K movies. It will be available for sale from September.
The EOS 5D Mark IV has a resolution of 30.4MP and a full-frame CMOS sensor. It’s fitted with an in-built digital lens optimizer and Canon’s Digic 6+ image processor. The camera has a 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen display supplemented with Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus. This technology enables faster autofocus even in the video mode.
High-speed continuous shooting in the EOS 5D Mark IV occurs at a rate of 7fps. 4K videos are captured at speeds of up to 30fps in 4096 x 2160p resolution. The device is also hosting a mirror vibration control system for higher speed in continuous shots. The shooter’s ISO ranges from 100 to 32000. It comes with a 150000-pixel RGB + IR metering sensor and EOS iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recording).
One of the EOS 5D Mark IV’s notable features is the Dual Pixel RAW which makes micro-adjustments to the optical errors seen on the image after clicking. This tool can also be used to make bokeh-shifts and reduce ghosting in pictures.
Besides the above-mentioned specifications, the EOS 5D Mark IV also supports connectivity options like Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and GPS. It is the first device in the 5D range to be host to NFC which can be used to pair the camera with supported phones.
The body of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is priced at Rs 254995. If buying it with the EF 24-105mm lens, the cost shoots up to Rs 324995. You can also purchase the camera with an EF 24-70mm lens which will set you back by Rs 306995.
