Canon just released the new 5D mark IV and I’ve already played with it. The new bodies are supposed to start shipping today, so I’m waiting for my pre-order to get here. With the focusing engine of the Canon 1Dx mark II, it should keep up with that camera except not at 14 frames per second. While the 1Dx 2 comes in at just over 20 megapixels, the 5D mark IV shoots at 30. In all, this is the camera that I’ve been waiting for all summer. I loved the 1Dx2 when I shot with it this spring — the focus was so accurate and fast in sports and lifestyle work, but I wanted the larger files. Do I get rid of a 5D mark III? I don’t think so. Though the new mark IV shoots 4k video, I’ll keep both mark 3’s on hand for backup and BTS video shooting for now.

Thank Tank Photo – new cases
Also announced today are new airport camera cases from ThinkTank – my new goto supplier for camera bags. I want to get my hands on one of these Airport Security V3.0 cases. The Airport International version is slightly smaller to accommodate international security requirements, but the 3.0 is as big as you can get on a domestic flight. Check them out with the links below.
