Jared Polin from FroKnowsPhoto has completed his real world review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, it’s an hour long video and worth a watch. Jared touches on Dual Pixel RAW and didn’t come away a big fan of the concept in its current form, however we may see some great advancements with this sort of technology in the future.
On Dual Pixel RAW:
In theory this sounds like a fascinating technology, being able to shift your focus after the picture is taken. In reality it’s not there just yet. You do have the ability to shift focus and bokeh but it’s truly micro. When I say micro, the adjustments are so subtle that at times you will have a little trouble seeing something actually happen. So in the end, cool tech but not something I am going to switch into often, if ever.
On ISO Performance:
How does the ISO compare to the 5D Mark III? The files are cleaner at higher ISO’s, which it better be. Is it far better and worth the upgrade? It’s better. Any time you can get cleaner high ISO shots it’s worth it in my opinion.
Worth the upgrade?
I think this is a great general camera for those who consider themselves to be a photographer who also shoots video. Or if you’re a filmmaker on a budget and can’t drop $16,000 on a camera, I think the Mark IV is for you. Let me remind you that people will point out how other companies have better specs or do this or that better. I’m not going to deny that in some cases, but for a well-rounded dual purpose camera, you can’t go wrong with the Mark IV. Read the full review
