I am VERY happy with my Canon 5D Mark IV. It raises my photo taking to a whole new level. It is amazing how much flexibility I have now. I am amazed by its low light capability, I enjoy the heft of the body, it doesn't feel cheap and flimsy and it isn't too heavy. A few drawbacks: the Canon RAW Reader is mediocre. I had to subscribe to Adobe Photoshop CC to be able to finesse color and white balance. While the autofocus is great for taking sharp pictures, it sucks BIG for video bcuz anything in the foreground will pull focus. Too many focus points for me. I like having a 1 focal point option to better control focus w/o having to go full manual. But overall, I love it! Controls are intuitive. Since I am shooting professionally, I need a camera that can really deliver sharp images. The camera will pay for itself many times over.
Videographer/DP analysis: Great all camera but Sony a7 ii is better in this category. Not as great of lense selection but shoots in 4k at 60 fps and has a 400,000 iso vs 120,000 on 5D mk iv. 5D has much better battery though and is amazing dual focus af. If I were you, save up for the 1DX mk ii. It's better than the a7 ii and beats the 5D mk iv at everything it does. In practicality though, the 5D mk iv does everything it needs to. Install C_log profile for film and get a flash card for 4k. Supports dual card slots and has an amazing battery with the battery grip adapter. Build is amazing and it's very versatile besides the immovable lcd screen. Worth $2200, but not the original pricetag offered at $3500+. If you're wanting film: go black magic pocket cinema camera, or the amazing GH5s. The 5D MK IV has a lot of drawbacks: no raw video, no 4k external recording, no zebra, focus peaking, or false color. This is a great camera for it's price but the Sony does it better. Even the full frame sensor is worthless without a low megapixel for better color processing if you are doing video with the cheaper and more robust GH5s, which also offers dual iso. The more expensive 5D MK IV does not have this. I initially bought this after prompted to by Peter Mckinnon. Do your research before buying. This is not the camera you're looking for. The only redeemable features is the dual pixel af (which is actually amazing), dynamic range sitting at 91, and 4k 29.97 fps. Obviously this camera is still a solid piece. The 4k shoots in intraframe though so dealing with these files just takes up space, especially since you'd be recording @ 30 megapixels. Along with this, the 5D MK IV does not support Magic Lantern. You can always use the Atomos 2 for an external 10 bit, prores 422 out, but forget about the 4k. 4k doesn't support dual pixel af either...
I bought this body to replace my Canon 5D MK III body. I was debating between Canon 5D MK IV and Sony a7 R III. After much thinking, I decided to go with Canon because I didn’t want to learn a new system and buy new lenses. I know you could use Canon lens on Sony with an adapter but I can use a Canon body with my eyes closed. Also I got a great deal on eBay. All the improvements that Canon made for 5D MK IV is good enough for me until a full frame mirrorless body is released by Canon. The things I love the most about this camera: -improved image quality -awesome focusing -touch screen and touch screen focus -AF in video mode -WiFi and GPS -Intervalometer -custom quick menu -everything else is as good or better than MK III
This is an amazing camera. Not leaps and bounds beyond my iii though. The duel pixel raw feature wasn’t as exciting as I had hoped. The best feature of this over the three are the low light capabilities and the touch screen. The larger file size is actually kind of a pain because I’m burning through more space on my hard drive. Unless your doing births or weddings I would go for the iii. It is a super solid camera and a bargain.
I am hobbyist, what I really like; 1) Price: I trust the product and got one imported model. I am glad I did that. There is no difference, I don't care the warranty part. Now, I have both USA and Imported Model, no difference at all except some paper work. 2) Picture Quality is amazing 3) Easy and Quick Setup 4) Speedy, Low light, ISO, all amazing 5) More options, buttons, multi touch 6) Wirelessly Pictures transfer 7) Wirelessly Wifi Printing 8) GPS What is missing: 1) 100 years old fixed screen, no tilt (Vari-angle LCD) screen option 2) Still heavy: after 5 years production, came out again such heavy camera 3) C-Log is not Free.
