We have gotten a few questions about the EOS 5D Mark IV when it comes to it’s 120fps 720p slow motion mode. We covered it back in August but samples were hard to find back then; all that has changed and now we can rate and position the camera in our HSC Camera Guide ranking. While it will not win any contests for resolution or frame rate we think it is a good all around camera with useful features for video enthusiasts.
The negatives like high price, Moire & Aliasing prone slow mo resolution, huge inefficient 4k bit rates on an old codec, 1.74x crop in 4k recording and big system bulk still apply for this camera. The Panasonic GH5 for instance destroys the 5D Mark IV in the video spec department but that is ok considering the 5D Mark IV is a stills workhorse with a full frame sensor first and an excellent AF and high ISO performance package.
