We've just posted our first set of test shots from a production-level Canon EOS-1D Mark IV digital SLR, straight from the lab.
The 1D Mark IV is a direct replacement for the company's previous 1D Mark III model, which has now been officially discontinued and will no longer be available once existing stock is cleared from the retail channel. The Canon1D Mark IV supplements its predecessor's functionality with significant improvements in a number of areas. Perhaps most significant are the Mark IV's use of a new CMOS image sensor and dual DIGIC 4 image processors, which together have allowed Canon to offer both an increase in image resolution to 16.1 megapixels, along with a huge step forwards in the camera's ISO sensitivity range which now reaches as high as an expanded ISO 102,400 setting. Other enhancements include a revamped autofocus system, full HD video, support for UDMA cards, and much more. See our Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Preview for more details, and the Canon 1D Mark 4 Samples page for all the test images we've shot so far, including links to select RAW files. Look for more Canon 1D Mark IV test shots from the lab in the coming days!
