Canon EOS 1D Mark 4 - A quality crop, but full frames are cheaper

thinkdigit.com
31 May 2011
  • Summary: The 1D Mark 4 is a joy to shoot with and an extremely well built and great performing dSLR - a true pro photography tool. We'd like button placement to be a little more optimised (like the 7D), but that aside, there's little to complain about. The real competition comes from full frames like the Canon 5Dmk2 and Nikon D3s. For Rs.
  • Pros: Very well built with good environment sealing, Great low light performance, the sensor is noise free at ISO 3200, Excellent resolution and sharpness, Fast and responsive
  • Cons: Expensive - some full frame cameras are cheaper, Bulky and heavy, Button placement not as good as the 7D, Not compatible with EF-S lenses

  • Summary: Putting the EOS-1D Mk3's demons behind it Canon has produced an upgrade that's not just better, but delivers an incredibly versatile tool that blurs the 'sports camera/studio camera' line more than ever before. The Nikon D3S might beat it in very low light, but if you want speed and resolution, the EOS-1D Mark IV delivers convincingly.
  • Pros: Highly detailed 16MP images in a wide range of conditions, 10 frames per second shooting make it the fastest full-res camera on the market, Compatible with the most comprehensive lens range on the market, Excellent AF performance during our testing, Very good high ISO performance even at 25,600, Consistent if slightly over-keen metering, Highly customizable buttons let you tailor the camera's behavior, Excellent JPEGs that make the most of the camera's resolution, Goo...
  • Cons: Movie mode (and live view to a lesser extent), feels tacked-on, rather than integrated, Level of AF customization makes optimization challenging, Placement and interaction of AF customization options unhelpful, White balance isn't brilliant in artificial lighting (but few cameras shine in this respect), Like the D3S, the vertical AF-ON button can easily be pressed by accident

  • Cons: Movie mode could be better integrated, serious battery drain when using live view or shooting video.

  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS 1D MkIV , ( compare prices ) ( review ) is a remarkable camera, and perhaps at a cost of around $5000 you should expect no less. It’s built to a standard to survive hard professional use while delivering images of outstanding quality under adverse conditions. It can shoot at 10 fps and in light levels so low that other cameras would yield images that were mostly noise. It can also shoot broadcast quality 1080p HD video when called on to do so.

Canon 1D Mark IV review

What Digital Camera
12 April 2010
  • Summary: The 1D Mk IV is one of the best DSLRs ever produced. As to whether it is better or worse than Nikon's D3s is too close to call without direct comparison testing between the two. It's fair to say, though, that both have their benefits and faults and on comparing their ISO performances on our colour chart, the 1D Mk IV doesn't control noise as well above 12,800 but it does have other strengths.

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV Review

Digital Camera Review
5 March 2010
  • Summary: Canon's newest 1D model has no pretenses about being anything other than the high performance leader of the Canon DSLR fleet. You can pay more for the 1Ds Mark III, but not shoot nearly as fast, and with not all that much more resolution than the Mark IV. No built-in flash, no scene shooting modes, and only one shooting mode that allows the camera to make both decisions on aperture and shutter speed.
  • Pros: Fast continuous shooting rate, Solid, weather-resistant construction, Wide range of ISO sensitivities, Good image quality
  • Cons: Cost, Size and weight
