Canon 3822B018AA overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS 1D Mark IV offers advanced photographic and video imaging possibilities for demanding professionals. Boasting a 16.1 Megapixel APS-H sized sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors, and a completely redesigned 45-point AF system, the 1D Mark IV builds upon the success of the legendary 1D series with expanded ISO performance (up to ISO 102,400), HD video recording, and 10 frames-per-second continuous shooting.

The 1D Mark IV's all new autofocus system employs 45 AF points, 39 of which are cross-type. All focus points can be selected automatically or manually, and programmed for priority based on the portrait or landscape orientation of the camera. New AI Servo II AF uses advanced algorithms to track moving subjects with precision and accuracy, even under the most difficult shooting conditions. An improved 63-zone metering system analyzes the frame for optimal exposure.

True 1080p HD video can be recorded at 24 (23.976), 25, or 30 (29.97) frames per second for better compatibility with non-linear editing systems. 720p HD and 640 x 480 SD video are captured at 50 or 60 (59.94) frames per second, offering the smoothest method of recording action subjects. An integrated mono microphone records spontaneous audio with video, while a 3.5mm stereo input offers higher quality options for professional applications.

Additional features include environmentally sealed magnesium-alloy construction, integrated sensor cleaning, and a 300,000 exposure shutter rating. With all this and more, the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV represents a complete photo and video solution for professional photographers and filmmakers.

Precision High-Speed Autofocus
The EOS-1D Mark IV has a newly developed, high-precision Area AF sensor with 45 manually selectable points including 39 cross-type, high-precision AF points for exacting and fast focusing no matter the subject. New AI Servo II AF focus tracking features improved algorithms that help improve stability, reliability and focus no matter the situation. Whether shooting a fast-paced soccer game or shooting a close-up of a bee on a wind-blown flower during macro photography, AI Servo II AF helps ensure sharp focus every time. AF point selection has been improved as well. Photographers can select their own point through either the camera's Multi-controller or Main Dial/Quick Control Dial. Automatic selection is as simple as the press of a button. With Custom functions, photographers can select their own default focus point to automatically switch between horizontal and vertical shooting and can even choose to have primary focus supported by adjacent focus points for more accuracy with moving subjects.
Powerful ISO Sensitivity
The EOS-1D Mark IV features a standard ISO range from 100 - 12800 with an expanded range of 50 to 102400. The combined noise reduction capabilities of the Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors and the Canon CMOS sensor help ensure that even at an ISO setting of 102400 noise is kept to a minimum. This greatly expanded capability provides an increased range of real-world shooting options, especially in available-light or dim situations. A low ISO speed can be useful, for example, when shooting high contrast scenes at large apertures. Blown highlights, such as the shading of a bride's dress, can be avoided and photographers can use wider apertures to control depth-of-field in ways not possible at higher ISO settings. Additionally, the EOS-1D Mark IV features the Auto Lighting Optimizer (ALO), which automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast during image processing to minimize the need for expensive and time-consuming post-production processing. Auto Lighting Optimizer is available in most shooting modes, including Manual mode and can be applied to RAW images using the included Canon Digital Photo Professional software.
HD Video Recording
The EOS-1D Mark IV captures video with all the benefits of shooting with an EOS digital SLR. The HD recording area on the EOS-1D Mark IV is approx. 27.9 x 15.7mm, similar when compared to the 24.89 x 18.65mm recording area of Super 35 motion picture film. By shooting video with a large sensor camera, photographers as well as videographers can take advantage of the creative features native to SLR photography. Along with its manual controls, the EOS-1D Mark IV allows for full use of Canon EF lenses, including wide angle, macro, super-telephoto, tilt-shift lenses and fisheye, providing a wealth of depth-of-field and other creative shooting options once reserved only for still photography. The resulting HD video is a standout in its stunning depth-of-field characteristics, remarkable capture capability under poor lighting conditions with its vast ISO range, and deep clean blacks with nearly undetectable noise.

When shooting HD video in AE modes, the EOS-1D Mark IV employs Center Weighted average metering to help ensure stable motion-picture exposure with the camera automatically selecting the ISO speed, shutter and aperture. Full manual exposure control is also available while shooting video when the camera is set to Manual mode.

Video can be captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution at frame rates of 24 (23.976), 25 or 30 (29.97) frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 (59.94) fps). The EOS-1D Mark IV has a built-in microphone for simple mono recording and stereo sound can be recorded through a self-powered external microphone.

High Resolution Image Capture
The EOS-1D Mark IV features a high-resolution APS-H sized 16.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor (with a focal length multiplier effect of 1.3x) and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors that can process images at full resolution continuously up to 10 frames-per-second. The combination of the CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors help to ensure smooth, detailed and refined images that are recorded quickly, accurately and reliably. This impressive combination of speed, quality and performance will make the EOS-1D Mark IV a staple among many professional photographers, including sports photographers, and a familiar sight on the sidelines of professional sporting events.
10 Frames Per Second Shooting
The EOS-1D Mark IV's rugged, high-speed shutter can shoot up to 10.0 frames per second (fps) for up to 28 consecutive RAW files or 121 full-resolution JPEGs when used in conjunction with UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) Mode 6 CF cards. The EOS-1D Mark IV's spectacular new 45-point high-speed AF sensor locks on and maintains focus, ensuring that the camera keeps up with its amazing shutter.
3.0" ClearView II LCD
The EOS-1D Mark IV features a new, high-resolution, 3.0" ClearView II VGA LCD. The screen boasts 920,000 dot resolution and provides a new level of clarity and sharpness with a 160° angle of view. Its performance is admirable, not only in confirming focus and composition, but in composing and shooting in Live View mode, or when shooting video. It features a tempered glass protective cover with an anti-reflective film and a new resin filling between the actual LCD and glass cover that helps minimize internal reflections and further improves visibility in bright viewing situations. During image playback, pressing the illumination button displays an LCD brightness screen, so brightness can be adjusted quickly and easily.
Professional Construction
A lightweight and incredibly strong magnesium alloy construction helps the EOS-1D Mark IV to endure almost any condition, and the EOS-1D Mark IV features a shutter designed to shoot 300,000 cycles. All the EOS-1D Mark IV's controls, buttons and external covers are dust- and water-resistant, ensuring uninterrupted operation whether shooting in the rain, in a windstorm and everything in between. Dust is managed with the advanced Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System, which helps to suppress dust generation, removes existing dust and uses the combination of Dust Delete Data and DPP software to eliminate any remaining dust spots on your images. When the EOS-1D Mark IV is used with a dust and water-resistant EF lens or external Speedlite, the entire camera system is nearly impervious to the elements.
Canon EF Lens Compatibility
The EOS-1D Mark IV is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup (excluding EF-S lenses), ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver outstanding performance in nearly all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as aspherical optics and fluorite elements, are featured in the widely acclaimed L-Series lenses, and Canon Image Stabilizer technology in select lenses helps to minimize the effect of camera shake. Through Canon lenses, photographers can truly maximize the quality and liberating performance of the 1D Mark IV.

    Canon 3822B018AA reviews

    EOS 1D Mark IV SLR Digital Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 180.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weather proof what's your proof? My Mark IV is still under warrenty and was exposed to rain for a few seconds, I ran to the car and wiped it off. To my suprise I saw water drops under the the top display window. I never returned it right away for fear it would not be back for a wedding I had to take. I took it to Canon and was told that my warrenty wouldn't cover it. I was led to believe that a camera of this durabilty could handle a few seconds of rain...poor customer much for the extra warrenty. $565 later to repair one of their 76 sealed parts that was water resitant. Please explain what water resistant means. Both my 40D and 50D got problem there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PRO SLR-AMAZING AUTOFOCUS I am a wildlife photographer and require a camera that can grab and hold focus. This is the first autofocus system I have ever used that has been able to accomplish the high level of autofocus that I require. Much of my work is done in Africa, under difficult conditions. The subjects are in dynamic motion and the lighting is all over the place. My preliminary testing of this camera indicates that this will be well within the capability of the Mark IV. Build quality is superb as is high ISO performance. The only negative I can think of is the large size of the OEM battery charger. Canon should make a smaller charger available for those of us who travel by air.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I recently purchased a EOS D1 Mark 1V, I have used it for 2 months and so far taken over 10.000 pics. I am loving every minute I spend with my camera. The quality is unsurpassed. I use the camera mostly for wildlife but have been taking lots of action shots of people as well as spend a lot of time taking night time pics with the tripod. The pics are fantastic. Once you get to know the way the camera and learn to use the various functions there really is no end to what this camera can do. I love the fast burst mode and I also find that when using a higher ISO I have been able to get good Quality pics without too much graininess. The camera is worth every penny

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great camera for sport and low light Took some soccer game shots with 135mm L at f2.2 and 70-200mm L F4 at f4. I am quite happy with the results. In most of the shot sequences, the focus was spot on, and it stayed on. IQ is great. The 35mm L shines on this camera, I don't hesitate to use it wide open, at f1.4, at ISO800. One thing I've noticed, if the moving person wears black cloth, Al Servo has trouble, the focus is not spot on. I tested with the 135mm L at f2.2, I will try another lens. But I don't think any camera out there can do any better, there is really no contrast. Another thing I need to complain, why can't Canon include a GPS? I ended up writing my own program on a Google Nexus One to provide the GPS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved Work Horse Use: Wildlife Photography What rocks? Much improved AI Servo functionality when compared against M III. I didn't see the issues RG's review raised and I'd say I've got an improvement of 30-40% on the quantity of sharp images taken on moving subjects (Birds in flight). Pretty much same as the M III in terms of lay of the land, no new learning curve on what button does what etc... they didn't really change a thing other than add HD Video, bump up the MP's and re-work the AF. Negatives: Price is steep, this camera body doesn't have the cool neat-o built in functionality of the new EOS-7D to tell me I've tilted the camera at the wrong angle...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I had hoped I was a little hesitant to upgrade from my 5D to the 1D Mark IV, due to concerns over image quality. I use my cameras for everything from portraits to wildlife to industrial and product photography. The 1D4 far, far exceeds my expectations, providing excellent quality color and tone rendition, with low noise and excellent detail across the range from shadow to highlight. The whole camera feels tighter and gives noticeably less shake. Autofocus is quick and accurate. Video capability opens a whole new world. I thought it would be awkward, but proved to be surprisingly easy to use. Wonderful viewfinder. Excellent controls setup. I am very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Camera! Well what can I say, I am coming from the 50D and I was hesistant to drop this kind of money. I can say that after the first shot with the Mark IV I would never go back. It was easy to learn the functions and menu increased menu options. The frame speed has made all the difference for shooting sports. I use this camera everywhere from NCAA sports to team portraits. Focus in outside sports was out of site. My keep percentage on my images due to focus issues went WAY up. Indoor dark locations did still present some challenges for the focus even with still subjects but I think it still was better then my 50D. Overall, the focussing system is way better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate for sports and wildlife When perfection in wildlife images is a must, so is 10 frames a second. My tests so far have shown an extremely high percentage of keepers, to the point of giving a sense of reliability that I have never had in a camera body before ( in nearly 50 years of photography). The extra file size allows for easy cropping as well as using it for landscape photography. It is a wonderful upgrade from the Mark 3. Love the auto ISO feature - to be able to dial in the optimum shutter speed as well as the sweet spot of the lens in use is like photography in dreamland!! Also, the HD video is great and might well help defray the costs of some of our more expensive photo trips.
