Canon EOS 1D Mark IV
Extra! Extra! This just in. Canon has announced their newest flagship DSLR. I’m watching the walk-through video as I type this. Here’s what I’ve gleaned so far:
• 16.1 Megapixel APS-H sized sensor
• ISO Range 100-12,800 native with extend ISO up to 102,400. It’ll be interesting to see how this stacks up to the low light performance of the new Nikon D3s
• New 45-Point AF
• Auto Lighting Optimizer. I have no idea how this is supposed to work, but it looks kind of like it may add a little “fill light” to the picture. Similar to how Photoshop’s shadows/highlights feature works. Don’t quote me on that though.
• 1080 24p + 720 60p. I wonder if they are still employing line skipping to generate video image? And…does anyone shooting for web or SD broadcast care?
