Canon EOS-1D Mark IV DLSR First Impressions Review

EOS-D1 Mark IV continues the traditions set by the Mark II and Mark III: a rugged professional-grade DSLR with a huge list of image settings and controls.

$4,999.00 MSRP | Buy now at Amazon


The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV ($4999 MSRP, body only) is a professional-level DSLR, if the price itself didn't clue you in. It offers just a few step-ups from the three-year old 1D Mark III, but they may be enough to sway the right shooter: 16 MP pictures, a faster computer inside for better auto focus, higher ISOs, and video recording.
