Canon EOS 1D Mark IV becomes official

As expected, Canon’s newest professional camera gets announced before the end of the year (and probably the last model for the year) — Canon EOS 1D Mark IV.

It comes with all the usual bells and whistles with some improved specs.


16.1 MP sensor
45-point autofocus
ISO range: 100 – 12,800
Dual Digic 4 Processors
1080p HD video recording

Estimated price is $4,999 in the US but could swell beyond Php250,000 when it becomes official here in the Philippines. Will update this post once I get official word from Canon Philippines.

    Look at the olympics or other sport events. You’d see a barrage of white lenses. Between those lenses and their photographers are the older generations of this camera (1d Mark1-III). Canon managed to capture the sports photography segment because of its great telephoto lenses and cameras like this.

    Why is this camera line expensive?
    -It can double as a machine gun at 10FPS so you never have to worry bout that missed shot:

    -It’s autofocus is worlds apart from your traditional DSLRs.

    -Manny Pacquiao bought one:

    Its Expensive because this Camera will earn enough money for you to buy not just one or two cars if you have the skill to use it.. :D

  15. Nitecrawler says:

    ..and people who buy this type of camera do not buy this with lens kit.. They usually have 4-10 professional lenses for it already from previous/older models.. and mind you.. if think the body is expensive.. wait till you finds out the cost of each professional grade lens..

  16. LeoLutero says:

    anybody there who knows about the Hasselblad camera. Their cheapest is about 1,000,000 pesos.

    If you are into photography, you must really prepare the money,

  17. Boffill says:

    A good combination for those expensive lenses to that would cost you around 400K. [email protected]

    Grabe, here comes another baby. :-(

  19. tuknenards says:

    wow for the camera!
    wow for the price as well!

    only those certified photo professionals would buy this. as starters like us, settled na tayo for a Canon 500D – and this is gold na for us.
