Canon 1D MkIV is still outstanding

Updated: Feb 4

Even though it is not the latest model, the Canon 1D MkIV still delivers outstanding performance and image quality. It has a robust and durable design that can withstand heavy use and harsh conditions.

The camera has a high-resolution sensor that captures fine details and accurate colours in various lighting situations. The autofocus system is fast and reliable, and the burst mode can shoot up to 10 frames per second. I have taken more than half a million photos with this camera and it still works flawlessly.

The Canon 1D MkIV is a professional DSLR camera that was released in December 2009. It has a 16.1-megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor with a 1.3x crop factor and dual DIGIC 4 image processors. It can shoot at 10 frames per second with a maximum ISO of 12800, expandable to 51200 or even 102400. It also features a new autofocus system with 45 AF points, 39 cross-type, and a 63-zone metering system. The camera has a weather-sealed magnesium alloy body and a shutter unit that is tested to 300,000 cycles. It has a 3-inch LCD screen with 920,000 dots and a 100% coverage optical viewfinder. The Canon 1D MkIV was the first Canon APS-H camera to offer HD video recording at 1080p resolution. It was discontinued in mid-2012 and replaced by the Canon EOS-1D X, which combined the features of the 1D and 1Ds series.
