DP Review
12 October 2010
  • 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

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

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV review

  • Summary: In many situations the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV captures superbly detailed images with natural, yet punchy colours. The AF system performs well, even in low light, although it is worth paying for fast lenses that get the best from it. Users also need to spend time experimenting with the system so the right options are selected for each subject and situation.

  • Conclusion: This was always going to be a great addition to the EOS range however this model should only be considered by those who need the large ISO range and advanced AF system.

Test av Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

digital-foto.no
4 June 2010
  • Summary: Det er testens raskeste kamera. Formidable er også de 45 fokuspunktene som alle kan velges manuelt, der 39 er av typen krysstypesensor, som kan brukes med en maksimal blender F4.0. 1D Mark IV har testens raskeste og mest presise autofokus. Kameraet er stort og imponerende robust og er alldeles nydelig å holde i. Det har også forsegling i samlingene.

  • Excerpt: Det er testfeltets hurtigste kamera. Formidable er også de 45 fokuspunkter, som alle kan vælges manuelt, hvor de 39 er af typen krydstypesensor, som kan benyttes med en maksimal blænde F4.0. 1D Mark IV har testens hurtigste og mest præcise autofokus. Kameraet er stort, imponerende robust og lækkert at holde på. Og så er det forseget i samlingerne.

Test: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV (DSLR über 1.000 Euro)

CHIP Online
12 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Canon ist mit der EOS 1D Mark IV eine überzeugende Kamera für Profis gelungen. Den Umstieg von der Mark III rechtfertigen neben der um 60 Prozent gestiegenen Auflösung bei gleichbleibender Schnelligkeitauch das viermal so hoch auflösende Display, die Videofunktion sowie das bessere Rauschverhalten.
  • Pros: Überzeugende Bildqualität, Sinnvolle Ausstattung, Sehr schnelle und lange Fotoserien
  • Cons: Rauscht im High-ISO-Bereich mehr als Nikon D3s
