Canon proudly introduces the newest member to its EOS 1D series of cameras, the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV to the buyers of the United States. The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera comes equipped with a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 Imaging Processors, and 14-bit A/D data conversion. The EOS-1D Mark IV has a new autofocus system that starts with 45 AF points including 39 high-precision cross-type focusing points capable of tracking fast moving athletes or wildlife accurately at speeds up to 10 frames per second.
The Canon Mark IV also comes with the advantage of Canon’s widest ISO range and highest performance ever, speed settings range from 100 up to 12,800 in 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments with ISO Expansion settings of L: 50 for bright light or H1: 25,600, H2: 51,200, and H3: 102,400 for even the most dimly lit situations. The Mark IV also has 60% more pixels than the EOS-1D Mark III and can record Full HD at 1920 x 1080 in selectable frame rates of 24p (23.976), 25p, or 30p (29.97); and 720p HD or SD video recording at either 50p or 60p (59.94).
The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera is scheduled to be delivered to U.S. dealers in late December for an estimated market price of $4,999.00 for the body only.
