Canon 5D Mark IV Gallery Images: Exploring the city and the forest with Canon’s latest full-frame DSLR

Announced a bit before this year's Photokina tradeshow, Canon's long-awaited successor to the widely popular 5D Mark III has arrived. While on its exterior, it may look like just another 'Mark III,' the new Canon 5D Mark IV sports a lot of new features and performance improvements on the inside that should pique the interest of photographers and videographers alike.

Sporting a higher-resolution 30-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF -- Canon's second full-frame DSLR with on-sensor phase detect -- and a faster DIGIC 6+ image processor, the camera is not only faster at shooting stills (at 7fps; up from 6), but also offers faster frame rates and higher-resolution video formats including Cinema 4K at up to 30fps! Finally! The camera has a new native ISO of 32,000, which can be expanded all the way to 102,400. How well that super-high ISO fares in the image quality department out in the real world is still up for debate.

On the physical side, the camera includes a number of highly sought-after new features (at least to me, personally, and I'm guessing to a bunch of other folks, too) such as built-in Wi-Fi / NFC and GPS as well as a fully-operational touchscreen -- not just for tap-to-focus as on the 1D X Mark II!. Yes!

I've just now begun my in-depth Field Test on this popular DSLR, and I've spent the day today hiking along the Chattahoochee River and strolling across Midtown Atlanta and into Piedmont Park to bring you an initial batch of real-world gallery images. As you may know, we've already shared a sampling of real-world images from the 5D4, but that camera was a prototype model, and now we've snagged ourselves a full-production one. You can see a selection of re-sized gallery images throughout this article, but for downloadable full-resolution JPEGs and RAW files, jump over to our Canon 5D Mark IV Gallery Page (tip: search for images with "WB" in the filenames.)

My Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test is underway, stay tuned!
