wow pretty amusing reading around the interweb at all the anger and hate directed (mostly) at 5D4's lack of video functions, for what is primarily a stills camera

it's pretty obvious the direction canon is going with the 5D4, "we are going to give you at least the option to shoot 4K in what is a fantastic stills camera, if you want more video options have a look at the rest of our product line up"

i mean, it's not like you're allowed to buy another brand/product that suits your needs better right? and if your sonikonfujisonic is so perfect why not just be happy with what you got and not go sh!t on a product from a brand that you don't even use?

as a stills shooter who shoots a bit of everything (landscape, macro, birds, astro, portraiture, very occasional weddings/events), this camera is nearly (and i say nearly) as perfect as it gets

all f/8 AF points, -3 EV sensitivity (-4 EV in live view!), wider AF coverage and improved tracking, better metering system, 30mpx seems like good compromise between better resolution vs having to deal with too big of a file size and maintaining high ISO performance, (assumed) much improved DR/noise floor, even shooting stills in live view is starting looking incredibly useful and that dual pixel tech that allows you to AFMA an image in post! that alone is pretty game changer to me (as matter of fact chatting to a Nikon wedding photographer mate last night at dinner and he's drooling over that function), i dunno if it's just me but they all look like pretty legit and useful improvements to me

if only canon would link spot metering to AF points and add a flippy screen (one can dream right :p)

This guy ^^^^ he a smart one. spot linked would be amazing and I doubt they would lose much 1D sales over it... look how many of us WANT it that do NOT buy the 1D. The flippy screen would make the camera epic... I'm a huge fan of the flippy screen ;)

80D would make a great astro camera. I shot my astro at ISO 1600 on the 5D3, 20 second exposures and 2.8 seemed to work out just fine.

This. And getting older doesn't help with this 'fun'.

Great news if that's the case, thanks.

Edit: page 150 of the manual linked by peteg1 confirms illuminated points in AI Servo. Happy with that.

Awesome awesome awesome!


well that didn't last long...

Kinda sucks... but wifi with remote shooting would solve that now. I know it's not as quick/seamless as the flippy screen but it would work

Like the custom function for min/max shutter and min/max aperture although those settings are global so if in a pinch you want to go to F8 after you set a max of say 5.6... nope you'll need to disable it.

I see myself finally using the custom functions now. will have one setup one way and one setup another way.

heck ya... SET button will be set to ISO and the area selection button under the joystick will be set to exposure compensation. FINALLY an awesome powerful combo. for me at least.

well this concludes my read through on the manual. Everything I expected. Good luck Canon getting me to let go of this camera in 4yrs... you'll have to do something amazing. This thing is built to last!

Just some thoughts from someone that does not have a dog in this fight.

I think constructive criticism of the new Canon D Mk 4 is a good thing. Everyone has different expectations when a new model is announced and some of those will be very happy, some content with the upgrades and of course, some who are very disappointed. Just depends upon our individual needs.

I’ve watched the Tony Northrup video on the MK4 and he is not a big fan of the upgrades because they do not meet his needs. For him, he says the Mk4 is a “jack of all trades and master of none”. Which I believe to be true. He also outlines what he does and does not like about the Mk4. I found it to be entertaining and just one man’s personal opinion.

If I needed a full frame camera, I would buy it without hesitation. But the need is not there.

Excuse me, there is a knock at the front door. I believe it’s the UPS man with my new 80D! :grin:

Interesting yet off topic, but there is still no thread on the 16-35 III in the lens area. No love?
