Let’s face it, Canon has been around since 1933, and if you are doing something for 80 years you are supposed be good at it, and Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is a prime example of that. We all agree that digital photography has changed the world, there are more photos taken every second than ever before, even more shared and uploaded. But all photos taken and shared might not be of equal quality. When precision matters, that’s where professional equipment kicks in, especially in photography where there are moments which can’t be missed.
For those moments (and people) Canon has their 1D series, and the EOS-1D Mark IV is definitely not a letdown, targeting serious photographers, photojournalist, sports photographers; this camera will deliver what it is required to do. The Canon 1D series have always meant serious business, “1” refers to their top of the range cameras. What makes the Canon 1D Mark IV series unique is its autofocus system of 45 points and a speed of 10fps! Here is an example of Burj Khalifa, these shots are handheld and shot with the following settings:
