Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV released

Info - Canon EOS 5D Mark IV released

The Canon EOS 5D Mk. II started it all back in 2008. It was a step-up from the Mk. I with a new little feature: video recording. Well that little feature turned out to be quite the game changer. It's been eight years since that revolution in video recording and Canon has announced its latest iteration of the EOS 5D. It's nothing surprising to be honest.
