Early this morning Canon introduced several new products including the much anticipated EOS 5D Mark IV with a list of new features and capabilities, two new L series lenses – the EF 16-35mm F2.8L III USM and the EF 24-105mm F4L IS II USM as well as a WIFI SD card to bring WIFI support for 3 existing cameras.
There has been endless speculation about the EOS 5D Mark IV but now it is finally here with a new 30MP sensor with advanced Daul Pixel technology for video, large touch screen, new AF system, faster shooting speed, WIFI/NFC and GPS but maybe more importantly (for some at least) – 4K video at 30 frames per second.
