    Best camera I will ever own!

    I upgraded from a Canon 4000D (T100) crop camera to this incredible 5D full frame camera and consider it one of the best purchases I've ever made, considering the cost. PROs: 1. Value for the money. 2. Canon's high quality standards make this "the" camera among many other choices. 3. Ergonomics - feels great in the hand, easy to reach buttons and dials when needed. 4. Easy to use menu system, which provides many powerful features. 5. Large touch screen makes it super easy to target subjects, change ISO/Shutter Speed/Aperture settings on the fly. 6. Takes both compact flash and SSD cards. 7. Long battery life (even more with the BG-E20 battery grip accessory). 8. Takes an AC power supply option. 9. Huge assortment of prime and telephoto zoom EF lenses to choose from. 10. Very large operator's manual, and definitely worth reading it. CONs: 1. No built-in flash. 2. Heavy - even heavier with the BG-E20 battery grip (as great an accessory that it is). 3. Hard to reach/adjust viewfinder diopter.

    Omg! It’s such a huge upgrade from a canon 6d mark 1. When you’re a professional photographer like me and want to up your game. This is the camera without going mirrorless. I have included before and afters of subjects I have photographed with this camera since I got it. The lenses are canon brand as well. Since I am use to canon it was easy to use. It was hard to get use to more focus points. My old camera only had 11. Lol you can imagine how happy it made me and helped on getting sharper images when photographing with a lower f-stop of 1.4 to 2.8. AND the ability to photograph with higher ISO because the sensor is so much better.

    The touch screen features make this camera body incredibly convenient. As well as it's build in wi fi capability. As far as weight it is a heavier body than the 60D which is a crop sensor frame. This again is a convenient camera, especially considering that Apple has not yet updated their software to support RAW files from the Mark IV. The fact that you can print RAW files at 16x20 without any pixel distortion is amazing. I can use my iPhone to shoot photos, change any settings and preview photos from inside my toasty warm vehicle in the dead of winter catching the Northern Lights. The speed at which it can take a photo when you tap the screen is impressive- although it is even faster when not in screen view mode. I love all of the new point options for focus targets. All the photos are with the Canon EF 11-24mm lens with no lens filters and MOBILE quality as the only downfall is I can not yet open any RAW files on my desktop until there's been updates to support them.

    What I like about the new features of the newest lineup of the Canon 5D Series camera is how simple and flexible the customization of the buttons. This is a pros dream. The enhanced speeds, functionality and accuracy of the 61 point focus point system is 2nd to none. To top it off its amazing touch screen capabilities are unmatchable to date!

    This camera has surpassed my expectations. It is a solid heavy camera that takes the most vivid pictures I have ever created. The files are big and I had to upgrade to the Lexar USB 3.0 card reader. Now the files load quickly. I have been using Paint Shop Pro for many years because it was easier than PhotoShop. However, with these crisp pictures you can actually see a big difference in quality in PhotoShop. When I got my Canon D20 it was such a fun camera. This Mark IV is epic!

    The day I got the camera was a early morning so that I could take it to Mt Hood. Right away I loved how fast it performed and tack sharp it was. I've been rolling with the canon 70d for the longest time as a amateur but later turned it from a hobby to a proffession. I watched a lot of reviews and would visit Best Buy to see which camera I would love. I checked out the Sony A7R iii and saw how many Canon users switched to Sony. But really didn't want to be apart of that group with there expensive lens, plus not spend a lot to change and sell my other Canon lenses like Amy other user would. And it was to small for my not so big hands and to light, which is a good thing for others but I wanted something I could have a good grip and a good weight. And I knew if I was to ever drop the Sony I wouldn't be happy. But I'm happy with the Canon 5d marl iv. And soon to be taking more beautiful photographs. The picture I posted isn't the full resolution one because I can only post a 5 mb image

    I love this camera. I bought it for the advanced video features only to find out I have to make a separate purchase of the c-log format for video AND only Canon service centers can do the upgrade AND it'll take a couple weeks without my camera. I wish it would have been available in-store.

    I knew going in that I was investing in a flagship Canon, and after the success of the 5D Mark iii, how could one go wrong here. Even still, I am floored by how clear and detailed my shots of my son came out in a room with no light execpt for the computer screen my son was playing keyboard on. The clarity and detail, and noise handling of this camera,,,I was blown away. No turning back from full-frame for me,,,and I look forward to growing into this camera over the next few years. You CAN NOT go wrong with this body. I paired it with the 50mm 1.8 ii (updated nifty fifty) and the results are beyond impressive. I’ll add shots of some pics I took in Union Square with this combo.

    So Amazing

    So I started off by buying a Canon 80D. Amazing camera but I just wasn't satisfied with a crop sensor. I just had this insane urge to move to a full frame. So I decided let's by a 5D mark iii. Loved the full frame and amazing build quality. Being that it's a 4 year old camera it was missing things from the 80D that I grown to love. That was wifi and the auto focus seemed to feel more accurate. I made the executive decision and shelled out another $1000 for the 5D mark IV. With this camera I had the best of both worlds. Amazing picture quality,camera build and felt confident that this will last me a long time and be able to keep up with all my risky adventures. If you can afford to get it and the upgraded features such as wifi and touch screen I say go for it. If those don't work for you I suggest the 5D mark iii as it's about $1000 less.

    I was impressed in every aspect of its specs. It performed well more than expected. Lighter but more settings added that are very useful. A great workhorse, weather sealed and alloy body. To make it short its the combination of 7d MkII and 5d Mk III in one remarkable body. Im getting another one for back up.

    i been on pentax for 6 years and finally went canon , after watching and waiting for 3 years .. when the sale happens and finally this black friday canon took 500 off with free battery grip .. i wanted to go nikon 850 but no price break ,, i finally am going off pentax .. i am not going to state canon specific but just post comparison with pentax ,, i was hoping big difference but it was not so for picture quality .. pentax was limiting me with lens to buy and where to buy pentax which made me leave .. but canon has now let me expand what i wanted .. but of course cost went way up too .. if you know and want certain hardware and specific results . so for final statement, , i will get a 5DS/R soon to compliment the 5D M4 and use one for big zoom and one for wide-macro ,, ,which is what i done with all my pentax hardware .. if the 5ds/r would have been on sale, i would only gotten that .. 4 stars for end result of a photo compared to pentax for this body .. and much higher canon costs .

    EOS 5D Mark IV is an addition to my other EOS 5D Mark II. EOS 5D Mark IV is very easy to use after initial setup for each settings. I normally sets each tab except the ISO and only adjust the ISO defending the lighting conditions in order to frame a perfect shots. Using the cameras multiple auto focus points to get a great shot of fast moving objects even when using a zoom lens.

    I have been shooting professionally for about four years with a Canon Rebel T6i, which is still my boo-- BUT there is absolutely nothing like the Mark IV. I'm obviously still learning but can see a high difference in the final product. This camera is a bit heavier but you adjust quickly to the weight and honestly it does everything my T6i could do but better.

    The Canon 5D Mark IV is a professional quality camera. The price has dropped to be affordable even to the hobby photographer. I highly recommend the 5DM4 if you want to advance your photography and/or video productions. I shoot a lot of sports and love the sharpness and speed. Make sure you buy a good lens to go along with it.

    I purchased this camera to upgrade from a Canon 5d Mark II, and I couldn't be happier with picking this camera. Going from the mkii to the mkiv there was a little bit of a learning curve, but the quality upgrade is stunning. I shot a wedding soon after receiving it, and its low light capabilities blew me away. I also really appreciate the touch screen and multitude of focusing points. If you're looking to upgrade your camera, this would be the one!

    Yes this camera is not a newer model but it gets the job done. Add CC2019 to the equation and now I have hours of fun to keep me entertained. Easy to use, and most expensive lenses are every where online at at good price.

    I would give this camera 6 stars if I could!!! This camera is hands down one of the best purchases I have ever made. I decided it was time to upgrade from my previous camera and I couldn’t be more happy with my choice! There isn’t a single bad thing I have to say about the 5d mark IV. I also purchased a 24-70mm 2.4f lens and I think the two make a perfect pair for all different types of photography. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone looking to upgrade and improve their photography skills and horizon.
