Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Body Only

See Legendary.

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera builds on the powerful legacy of the 5D series, offering amazing refinements in image quality, performance and versatility. Canon's commitment to imaging excellence is the soul of the EOS 5D Mark IV. Wedding and portrait photographers, nature and landscape shooters, as well as creative videographers will appreciate the brilliance and power that the EOS 5D Mark IV delivers. Superb image quality is achieved with Canon's all-new 30.4 Megapixel full-frame sensor, and highly-detailed 4K video is captured with ease. Focus accuracy has been improved with a refined 61-point AF system and Canon's revolutionary Dual Pixel CMOS AF for quick, smooth AF for both video and Live View shooting. Fast operation is enhanced with Canon's DIGIC 6+ Image Processor, which provides continuous shooting at up to 7.0 fps*. Built-in Wi-Fi®**, GPS*** and an easy-to-navigate touch-panel LCD allow the camera to become an extension of you. When quality matters, the EOS 5D Mark IV helps deliver results to inspire even the most discerning imagemaker.

Recording Functions

  1. Standard
  • Select manually to record on either the CF card or SD card.
  • Auto switch card
  • When the current card becomes full, the camera switches to the other card automatically.
  • Record separately
  • The CF card and SD card record the same image at a different image recording quality (Large/Fine, Large/Normal, Medium/Fine, Medium/Normal, Small 1/Fine, Small 1/Normal, Small 2, Small 3, RAW, mRAW, sRAW).
  • Record to multiple
  • Both the CF card and SD card record the same image at the same image recording quality (Also applies to RAW+JPEG, mRAW+JPEG, and sRAW+JPEG).

Backup Recording


File Numbering

The following three types of file numbers can be set:
  1. Continuous numbering
  • The numbering of captured images continues even after you replace the card.
  • Auto reset
  • When you replace the card, the numbering will be reset to start from 0001. If the new card already contains images, the numbering will continue from the last recorded image in the card.
  • Manual reset
  • Resets the file number to 0001, and creates a new folder automatically.

Continuous Shooting Speed

High-speed continuous shooting: Max. approx. 7.0 fps
  • With 1/500 sec. or faster shutter speed, maximum aperture (varies depending on the lens), with a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E6N, and at room temperature (73°F/23°C).
  • The maximum continuous shooting speed will decrease under the following shooting conditions:
  • [Anti-flicker shoot.: Enable] results in maximum approx. 6.6 fps.
  • [Dual Pixel RAW: Enable] and RAW or RAW+JPEG image quality.
  • [Digital Lens Optimizer: Enable] will greatly decrease the continuous shooting speed.
  • The continuous shooting speed may become slower depending on the shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions, brightness, lens, flash use, temperature, battery type, remaining battery level, etc.
  • With the AF mode set to One-Shot AF and the Image Stabilizer turned off when using the following lenses: EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM, EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
  • In AI Servo AF operation, the continuous shooting speed may become slower depending on the subject and the lens used.
  • If you use Battery Pack LP-E6 and shoot in low temperatures (battery temperature is low), the high-speed continuous shooting speed may become slower.
  • The continuous shooting speed may become slower if the remaining battery level is low or if you shoot under low-light conditions.
Low-speed continuous shooting: Max. approx. 3.0 fps
Silent continuous shooting: Max. approx. 3.0 fps
