EOS 5D mkIV

I’ve had my Canon EOS 5D mk4 for over a year now and in that time I have been impressed with it’s image quality, ergonomics, auto focus, quietness in S shoot mode, handling, high iso shooting image quality but most of all it’s shear versatility, you can shoot anything with it. Features, movie stills, portraits, sport, you name it it will do it.

The camera handles lovely on it’s own but add the BGE20 booster pack and this gets even better plus like the old F1n which I loved, you can take the booster pack off if weight is an issue on a shoot. With the booster pack, the ergonomics are great, the camera just feels really nice in the hand used like this. It’s quiet S mode when used in single shot is another feature of the camera I really, really like, it’s not silent but very smooth and very quiet, the best type of this mode on any camera i’ve owned. Take the booster pack off, put on something like the EF85 1.8 short tele lens and you have a lovely unassuming portrait camera that the camera shy will approve of. Far better sometimes than say a big EOS1DX & EF70-200 for putting a sitter at ease. Not that I have anything against the 1DX as I own 2 of them.

Focussing is very responsive, as well as single shot and AI servo, you have AI focus which the camera chooses between the two previous mentioned AF modes for moving or static subjects and it works. Very handy on busy assignments when having to choose between static and moving subjects. Having dual card slots is very useful albeit one CF and one SD slot but very welcome for backing up when on a shoot.

The image quality off the camera is first rate especially at high iso’s. Used with my studio lighting on low iso, the quality is splendid especially when shooting raw. I work in low light a lot of the time and this is somewhere this camera excels. I’ve shot at iso 5000 in dimly lit arenas on assignments and the quality is so good, easily double page magazine spread quality good. Shooting night time sport, bands in dimly lit arenas, shooting available light corporate jobs it can do in it’s stride. This strength of the camera plus it’s quietness and versatility make it for me one of the best EOS cameras ever.
