Are they really worth the big money?
Let’s dive in to our first DSLR video test, the Canon 1Ds Mark IV.
Determining a new camera should be a no-brainer, but it can be tricky. You may want to buy a new camera that isn’t in a camera category you know you love, or you may want to try one that looks like another camera, but may not. In fact, when deciding which device to buy, one of the biggest decisions is whether or not to buy a body or a DSLR.
So, instead of taking on another article, and the potential to be distracted by the number of questions that can pop up if you choose a product based solely on price, let’s take a look at how the 1D Mark IV compares to its main competitors, the Canon 5D, Nikon D800 and Sony A7R.
The first time we saw the 1D Mark IV we were immediately curious whether or not it was going to take the prize for camera of the year for the 2012 Camera of the Year, and we decided quickly to take our test in a different direction. As with many of our test cameras and equipment, we wanted to find out whether or not the 1D Mark IV is truly the best DSLR camera of the year.
The 5D Mark IV
While the Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 5D Mark II were the best new products of the year last year, the Canon 5D Mark IV was the best of 2013. The 5D Mark IV was the best-selling camera in March for most of the year, so the question has always been can the new Canon 5D Mark IV deliver?
What do we mean by best-selling camera in March? With cameras and accessories that launch in May and June, sales and reviews come after Christmas, so we can’t directly compare the new Canon 5D Mark IV to the new Canon 5D Mark III until the end of August.
With a little bit of time and a little bit of patience, we came up with a quick set of criteria to try and figure out if the 5D Mark IV was truly the best new camera of the year in March.
If we go back and look at the charts below, it’s pretty clear that the Canon 5D Mark II (the 5D Mark III had only 1 month of sales, so March was the end of February for us) came pretty close to the top spot last year.
