What Do You Want To See in the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV?


Nov 12, 2013
Lower and higher ISO values, color accuracy like in 5ds, more AF points, lower introductory price.

Many people mention how great face tracking in Sony cameras is, although I can't comment on that since I haven't used Sony cameras. I feel this would be a good feature on Canon cameras too, if it's technically possible.

Besides all the "gimme-gimme" features that other have been talking about, I'd like to see a small feature added (heck, it could be retrofitted to the 5D3 easily):

+ Ability to choose which "info-levels" you toggle between during image playback. I basically only want to see the 2nd and 3rd screens (ie: large preview with data overlay and small preview with simple histogram). Should be simple to select this in software

+ Personally, I don't feel the need for a bump in MP, but it's obvious that we will see one.
+ Cleaner shadows like on the 5Ds(R)s
+ Illuminated (red) focus points. Illuminated buttons on the back would be useful too.
+ EC in M
+ Slight FPS bump (8 would be awesome)
+ AF improvements (I have a well document history of not being able to get the focus speed I want on the 5D3. Yes, blame me)
+ USB-3.1 Type C connector
+ AFMA controlable through the SDK
+ Built-in intervalometer would be nice
+ Wider AF spread would be nice
+ I cannot possibly imagine that more DR would hurt anyone. But it's very low on my wish list
+ Better autofocus in low-light Live-view mode (it wouldn't focus on the red supermoon :'()

Video features? Don't ask me, because I don't use the 5D3 to shoot video. Ask Vince LaForet or someone else who does video with a DSLR.

For me to get back to using Canon again:

- EVF.
- Wi-Fi.
- 30-40 mpix.
- DR around 14 stops.
- No banding/less noise.
- Dual card slots of the *same* type.
- Sensor IS

Though given Canons track record that is not going to happen anytime soon :)
