Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

There are two camera choices for top sports photographers and the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is one of them (the other starts with an N). The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV’s new AI Servo II offers ridiculous continuous auto focus performance with 45 selectable auto focus points. The camera body is nearly indestructible and can machine gun 10 frames-per-second bursts. The 16-megapixel APS-H sensor has great image quality with sensitivity to ISO 12,800. If you’re shooting heli-skiing in Alaska, Formula One racing or firefights in Afghanistan, the EOS-1D Mark IV is the best Canon DSLR to have. The 1D Mk IV also has 1920 x 1080p full HD video as well as high-speed 720p at 60 frames-per-second for slow-motion sports video.
