Canon EOS 1D Mk IV – Hands-on Preview

 

The ultimate press photographer's camera just got even better.

Handling the 1D Mk IV for the first time it's impossible not to be impressed. It's a big, heavy camera weighing almost 1.2Kg even without a lens, and the immediate impression is a feeling of solid reliability and competence. Canon has put as much...

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV review

[Review] Canon 1D Mark IV

 

Now what can we say? Well to be very honest with you, we have been very disappointed by the 1D MK IV, so much so that we have started to wonder if the test camera we had did have some major flaws, however, it is interesting to notice that we also had...
