A 30.4 Megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images that are packed with detail and low in noise, even in bright highlight and dark shadow areas. A finer resolution means nothing is lost, allowing you the freedom to crop in for the perfect shot and retain the quality.
Each of the EOS 5D Mark IV’s 30-million pixels is made up of two photodiodes, which can be used together or individually. This technology enables the creation of Dual Pixel RAW (DPRAW) files, which contain a pair of images shot from two very slightly different points of view. When processed using Digital Photo Professional software, DPRAW files allow photographers to perform image adjustments to keep sharpness on the area intended.
Low light performance is improved at every ISO setting, with much reduced digital noise and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 32,000 (expandable to ISO 102,400). Be confident of superb image quality even when shooting in poor light.
Built-in Lens Aberration Correction improves lens performance by compensating for factors like diffraction, distortion and chromatic aberrations to produce an image which is visibly superior.
A Digital Lens Optimizer adds another layer of correction, tackling even more optical phenomena, including the effect of the camera’s optical low-pass filter. The result: optimised performance and incredible image quality.
The 5D Mark IV features a choice of Auto White Balance (AWB) settings that take a different approach to artificial light. ‘Ambience Priority’ aims to retain some of the warm colour tones from artificial light sources in order to preserve some of the atmosphere of a scene, while ‘White Priority’ eliminates most of the warmth from tungsten lighting and tries to give colour-neutral images where possible.
The ‘Fine Detail’ Picture Style has been included in the 5D Mark IV to maximise the amount of detail captured by the cameras’ 30.4 Megapixel sensor. This setting prioritises gradation of tones and emphasises fine detail.
Fine Detail Picture Style features three adjustable sharpening parameters, similar to those found in the Unsharp Mask filter in Adobe Photoshop and Canon’s DPP software.
