Lastly, the a7S II is more affordable, costing $500 less. However, if paired with the right lens for tight quarters, it wouldn't be as big of an issue. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Sensor Review: Game changer? Chris Monlux Videomaker's Multimedia Editor. It Features 4K, But Itâs Disappointing 4K However, the picture it produces looks great. It’s far more affordable at $1,200. He is also Videomaker’s Multimedia Editor. We first saw noise at ISO 400 and at just 2 stops later at ISO 1600 or higher noise reduction would be required. This footage needs to be transcoded to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD in order to be edited fluidly as there’s no hardware acceleration support for such an outdatedÂ codec. The 7D has an even more remarkable spec of about 47ish Mbps for its 1080p30 files. Congratulations on the post, very enlightening. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV follows the EOS 1D-X Mark II in offering a touchscreen on its rear, and this can be used for a variety of purposes when recording video. While looking out the windows, it was fully lit with bright sun. Fast operation is enhanced with Canon's DIGIC 6+ Image Processor, which provides continuous shooting at up to 7.0 fps. But where the GH4 shines is with the ability to shoot longer than 29:59. As we know the Sony A7R II has a 42MP sensor yet manages to offer a full frame 4K mode as well as a Super 35mm crop 4K. Many of you may reply to the title of this article with an abrupt "No," and prior to using the Canon 5D Mark IV for my own videos, I would have agreed with you.

The 5D Mk IV does though. I will be there to check it out. On the second shot, closing up a stop from the first shot, the inside wasn't too dark, giving the best opportunity to pull information in the over exposed areas out the windows. Enabling smooth and precise pull focus transitions in any resolution from 4K to Full HD, just touch on the LCD the points you wish to focus to and from and let the camera do the rest.

So how does it work with the 5D Mark IV? After shooting the 5D Mark IV extensively, and since we frequently use the Panasonic GH4 which has a 2.3x crop factor, the Canon’s 1.74x crop factor did not seem like a big problem. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a full-frame 30MP sensor and captures 4K video, though with a substantial 1.64x crop factor. We would have liked a full touch screen for every function like on the Panasonic GH4, G7 and the Canon 80D.
