Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test Part II: Exploring performance with basketball, ice skating and more


posted Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 4:15 PM EDT


We're back with more Canon 5D Mark IV review content! Rather than having the same person do a full Field Test on the camera, we've changed things up a bit, boxing up the gear and sending it north to our trusty NYC-based writer and photographer, Eamon Hickey. In his just-published 5D Mark IV Field Test Part II, Eamon focuses (no pun intended) on the 5D Mark IV's performance qualities, especially continuous AF performance. Bringing the camera along for some ice skating photography as well as some tricky indoor college-level basketball games, Eamon put Canon's C-AF capabilities to the real test.

70-200mm f/4L IS: 78mm, f/4.5, 1/500s, ISO 5000

Also on the menu for this Field Test was a look at the Canon 5D Mark IV's new 4K video recording capabilities, a first for the 5D-series EOS camera. 4K videos look great, but the super-high bitrate footage can be taxing on even quite high-end computer systems, so it's not without its downsides. Eamon also took a look at the 5D Mark IV's interesting Dual Pixel Raw feature, which offers subtle post-capture image adjustment capabilities.

For all the details, jump over to our Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test Part II for all the info. Be sure to also check out the updated 5D IV Gallery Page for new images. And, if you haven't done so already, please feel free to read over our Field Test Part I.
