Professionally Proven, High-Speed AF. New 45-point Area AF sensor
including 39 cross-type AF points with f/2.8 support plus new AI Servo II AF
with improved algorithm.
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
cameras 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.
ISO 100 - 12800 (expandable to L: 50, H1: 25600, H2: 51200, H3:
102400) for shooting from bright to dim light with low noise levels.
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 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 with fast (e.g., f/1.4) lenses.
Blown highlights, such as the shading of a brides 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.

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
16.1 Megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors
for high image quality and speed.
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.
10.0 fps continuous shooting up to 121 Large JPEGS or 28 RAW using a
UDMA CF card.
spacer The EOS-1D Mark IVs 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 IVs 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-inch ClearView II LCD monitor, 160 viewing angle, 920,000-dot
VGA, reflection resistance with multi coating and high-transparency materials
for bright and clear viewing.
The EOS-1D Mark IV features the finest Canon LCD screen to date (October 2009):
the new, high-resolution, 3.0-inch ClearView II VGA LCD has 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.
Magnesium alloy body with shutter durability up to 300,000 cycles and
exclusive dust- and weather-resistance.
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 IVs 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.
Fully compatible with over 50 EF lenses and a wide range of EOS
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.
The EOS-1D Mark IV features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With
any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash
output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in
total darkness. The camera's new 63-zone Evaluative Metering Sensor is also used
for flash metering with an improved flash metering algorithm which reduces the
chances of overexposure with wide-angle shots in which the main subject occupies
a small area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, Custom Function
II-4-1 allows shifting flash metering so that all 63 zones of the sensor are
used equally to calculate flash exposures.
The Speedlite 580EX II is perfectly suited to the EOS-1D Mark IV. It has
improved reliability of communications through the direct contacts, has a metal
flash "foot," and is dust-/water-resistant as with the 1D Mark IV. Other new
features include a PC socket on the flash unit, and an external metering sensor
for non-TTL autoflash if desired. With the EOS-1D Mark IV, you can set most
flash settings using the cameras menu. It has the same power as the previous
Speedlite 580EX (maximum guide number of 190 ft./58m at ISO 100) and, when
mounted on the camera, automatically compensates for the cameras sensor size,
enabling high output flash, with more flashes per charge. It includes an
AF-assist Beam, which works in conjunction with the EOS-1D Mark IVs focusing
system, and automatically sends color temperature information to the camera when
the flash fires, for more accurate white balance rendition with flash
