Canon News - Canon EOS 1D Mark IV Announced

After much anticipation, today Canon announced their successor to the EOS 1D Mark III, with the predictably named Mark IV:

Although almost identical externally, there are some key new features to convince you to buy/upgrade:

  • Completely Redesigned 45-Point Autofocus System, with 39 high-precision cross-type focusing points
  • Fast 10 fps Continuous Shooting
  • 16-Megapixel Resolution
  • Outstanding ISO Sensitivity (up to 102,400)
  • Full HD Video Recording at Selectable Frame Rates

To accompany the new EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera, Canon is also announcing a new accessory, the WFT-E2 II A wireless file transmitter providing photographers with a wide range of professional digital connectivity options, details here.

As for me, I can't afford one, so I'll just upgrade my 'dream camera' from the Mk III to Mk IV version!!
