The 1D Mark 4 is a joy to shoot with and an extremely well built and great performing dSLR - a true pro photography tool. We'd like button placement to be a little more optimised (like the 7D), but that aside, there's little to complain about....

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...

The Canon EOS-D1 Mark IV ($4999 MSRP, body only) appears to be a solid camera with a lot of great features. If people were eagerly awaiting a slew of big upgrades from the Mark III, well... they may be a bit disappointed. The increase in resolution...

The new 1D Mark IV is a step up the evolutionary ladder from EOS Erectus, going where all SLRs are heading these days—High-Definition (HD) video capture. The camera on the left is the EOS-1D Mark IV, the Mark III is on the right. Externally, the...

Canon dominated the sports and press market for many years but since the launch of Nikon's D3 the distribution is much more balanced. The EOS 1D Mk IV was launched within a month of Nikon's record ISO headlined D3s, as tested in last month's...

Canon's newest 1D model has no pretenses about being anything other than the high performance leader of the Canon DSLR fleet. You can pay more for the 1Ds Mark III, but not shoot nearly as fast, and with not all that much more resolution than the...

As I write this review, the Vancouver Winter Olympics are only days away and the games should be a good test for Canon and its 1D Mark IV. As far as my testing is concerned, I believe Canon has a winner on its hands with the Mark IV, especially in...

The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV has the feel of a product that is determined to be as close to perfect as possible, and this is understandable after the uncertainty that hung over the 1D Mark III. It almost doesn't matter how many people were affected by...

It's interesting to see how much technology has progressed through 2001 to 2010. Film still produced grainy images with ISO 800 rated film back then, and we now have pristinely clean photos at ISO 12,800. Without a doubt, the technology has been...
