CAnon 1DMrkIV announced

It was expected, it is now out.

You can read the Canon official announcement here and look at its spec sheet here. Basically, it is a 7D with a 1.3 crop, 10fps, 16mpx sensor.

Here is a list of the key features:

  • New 16.1 Megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor
  • 10 frames per second continuous shooting
  • Up to 121 large JPEG images in a single burst
  • New 45-point wide area AF with 39 cross-type sensors with f/2.8 sensitivity
  • High-speed Dual “DIGIC 4” processors for superb image quality
  • 12,800 high ISO expandable up to 102,400
  • Full HD movie recording at 30, 25 and 24 frames per second
  • 3.0” Clear View II LCD with Live View mode
  • Durable dust and water resistant body with 76 rubber seals

I have to admit that the 10fps is a bit of a let down for sport shooters hoping for more. But that is still a pretty impressive package!

It is available for order from Amazon.

But I hear you thinking ‘how does it perform?’

Our friend Vincent Laforet and Stu teamed up to create a new video Nocturne. Shot at ISO 6400, take a look

Looking at the comments from Vincent and Stu, it seems like ISO 6400 is not a problem for video and, read this carefully, rolling shutter is minimal! Both of these news are great and I cant figure out which one has more impact.

BTW, I am ordering one.

    Just keeps getting better and better…

    Since I’m fresh out of money, the announced development of the Firmware update for the 5DMkII is much appreciated.

    Do you think the 5dMkII will enjoy any advantages as the only remaining full-frame camera from Canon? Shallower DOF, for instance?
