Canon pushes DSLR performance further with new Canon 5D Mark IV

In a major upgrade to its “mid-size” pro DSLR, Canon has pushed DSLR performance further with its new . The 30.4MP full-frame camera can shoot at 7 fps for up to 21 frames in RAW, and an unlimited number when recording JPEG. 61 AF points should give it excellent Autofocus performance. The addition of 4K video @ 30 fps (up to 30 minute clips) is also a nice, modernizing, feature. Startup time is an impressive .1 seconds, with a 58 millisecond shutter lag. At 1.76 pounds, it fits squarely into the “mid-range” of pro DSLRs, a popular category for those who don’t want to carry (or pay for) the 3 pound monster flagship models.

The power of the comes at a price. You can pre-order one for $4,600 from B&H, with the cameras expected to start shipping on September 8th.
