Canon 5D Mark IV vs Canon 5D Mark III Canon announced 5D Mark 4 camera just while ago and we are here to compare it with its predecessor Canon 5D Mark III.

We have carefully selected only those points who can show the actual difference from its predecessor for example effective pixels, dual pixel-raw and  while using a F8 aperture. Now let’s look at the comparison below.

Up to 61 points / 21 cross-type AF points (all individually selectable)

AF points at f/8: Canon 5D Mark IV 61 AF points as well as 41 cross type are compatible down to F8 aperture  and also works down to EV-3. Whereas, the Canon 5D Mark III only 1 AF point was active when you have selected F8 aperture.

Canon 5D Mark 4 camera features contrast detect CMOS sensor so there is no chance that it can compete with the recently announced Canon 5D Mark 4 camera with dual pixel CMOS AF Technology.

Canon 5D Mark IV features Continuous Shooting  mode of 7 frames per second @ 30 MP. whereas, the Canon 5D Mark III remains limited to 6 frames per second @ 22.3 megapixel.

Burst while using live view display, Canon 5D Mark IV camera can shoot 4.3 fps burst while live-view is ON and it will do continuous AF without and issue.

No 4K video recording option available in Canon 5D Mark III. The Canon 5D Mark IV is able to record 4K video at Digital Cinema (DCI) standard 4K (Motion JPEG) videos of 4096 x 2160 pixels at up to 30 or 24 fps. The Canon Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor inside the EOS 5D Mark IV enables touch AF while recording 4K video. EOS 5D Mark IV is equally able to shoot Full HD video at up to 60p plus HD at frame rates as high as 120p, ideal for smooth slow-motion video.
