Canon EOS 1D MkIV, really?

Canon EOS 1D Mk IV

Canon EOS 1D Mk IV?

According to NorthLight Images, there are a few Canon EOS 1D MkIV in real test now. Their features would be:

  • 1.3 crop
  • Images ~16MP
  • ISO 50-26500
  • 8MP sRAW1 format providing images that seem to best 1D3 files in detail
  • Very clean images at ISO 3200. 6400/12800 take further processing very well
  • Slightly faster FPS than 1D3 in real life shooting
  • AF greatly improved and very good in low light (actual comment was ‘Nikon fast’ 😉
  • Liveview AF – not up to fast sports use, but very usable otherwise
  • Video as with 5D2
  • Screen as per 5D2
  • Ergonomic improvements with grips – some buttons moved
  • Feels faster and more responsive in nearly all aspects of real use.

Of course, this may be right or not. Canon may change the name and feature set, or not.

    These specs sound good – i hope, they will be realised.

    I really hope the mkiv will have the video capabilities of the 7d. After all, it is a ‘faster’ camera, and I’d love to have the low-light performance on a video level in 1080p 30/24fps
