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
Conclusion: For those moments (and people) Canon has their 1D series, and the EOS-1D Mark IV is definitely not a letdown, targeting serious photographers, photojournalist, sports photographers; this camera will deliver what it is required to do. The Canon 1D series have always meant serious business, “1” refers to their top of the range cameras. What makes the Canon 1D Mark IV series unique is its autofocus system of 45 points and a speed of 10fps!
Summary: Seit Dezember 2009 lockt die überarbeitete 1D Mark IV Profifotografen mit mehr Megapixeln, hohen ISO-Werten, einer Videofunktion und Detailverbesserungen. Dazu gehören z.B. noch mehr Kreuzsensoren, speicherbare AF-Felder und ein höher auflösender Kameramonitor.
