I own a 7D Mark 1 and a 5D Mark II - Both still great cameras with a lot of use over the years - The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is without a doubt, a superior upgrade. The quality feature list is longer then most people can properly detail. If you have an older camera, it is worth looking into the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I own a 7D Mark 1 and a 5D Mark II – Both still great cameras with a lot of use over the years – The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is without a doubt, a superior upgrade. The quality feature list is longer then most people can properly detail. If you have an older camera, it is worth looking into the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

Right off the bat. If you’re a nature, bird, or sports photographer, you get access to all focus points at F8. So if you use an Extender – at F8 you’re are not limited to a single Focus Point anymore. Focus is also faster. The touch screen is amazing. Once you start using it to preview pics – send pics to your phone/Tablet or other WiFi Device, you won’t look at your old cameras the same way again. You can also remotely adjust settings, and take photos or video with your WiFi device. And yes, you can also toggle on GPS info.

I’ve only had my camera for a week and I have yet to test a 1/4 of the new features yet. The menu system is much improved and all of it is easily accessed and changed through the touch screen. I’ve yet to try HDR Photos, HDR Video (1080), 4k video, Time Lapse Video, Unlike the Mk II you get 7 Exposure Brackets instead of 3. There’s plenty more I haven’t mentioned. This is a very significant upgrade from the Mark II.

Batteries: Important to note! The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV uses LP-E6N whereas the Mark II uses the LP-E6. Having read up on this difference, the LP-E6N offers about 10-15% more battery efficiency = Incremental longer usage per charge. Beyond that, the batteries are the same size. The “N” designation was purportedly added after as safety enhancement in the Battery build required in Japan. Are the batteries interchangeable? This is best left open to ones research for Pros and Cons

I see a lot of negativity in online reviews on the 5D Mk! V and I’m going to say that if you’re buying a DSLR to fulfill your videography needs, there are superior DSLR’s out there. Yes, the 5D Mk II started the Video in DSLR movement, but the reality is Canon has allowed other players to take that mantle away. If you use your cameras primarily for Photography and minor video work, this is a great upgrade.
