Sigma - Compatibility Issue with Canon 5D Mark IV

canon-5d-mark-iv-image

There is no major issue, as we all know Canon all DSLR camera comes with built-in lens correction tool that corrects Peripheral illumination, Chromatic aberration and Diffraction once the shot is captured. Every Canon EOS camera have lens database inside and apply lens correction algorithm only when native Canon lenses mounted on it.  Lens correction tool doesn’t work with third party lenses and the second thing don’t try to adjust focus ring while lens is on AF mode, Manual Override not available with Sigma lenses.

From Sigma

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

Please find the following notes on the usage of SIGMA interchangeable lenses for EOS, when attached to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that is released on September 8th.

  • MO (Manual Override) function is unavailable with this camera (Full-time Manual function can be offered).
  • When using a SIGMA interchangeable lens for EOS, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, as “Lens Correction” functions of the camera, such as Peripheral illumination correction, Chromatic aberration correction, Diffraction correction and Distortion correction are not supported.*

* If those functions are activated, the performance of lenses may not be accurate.
* This is not only for EOS 5D Mark IV, but also for other camera bodies with the same function.

We appreciate your continued support for our company and products.

Sensor:

Canon 5D4 vs 5DS

Practically both the camera using Canon made fullframe sensor but the technology used inside them are completely different, the Canon 5D Mark IV uses Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor that can do fast AF while recording video or shooting with live-view model. Not only that, other brand users should also understand that the camera doesn’t have any dead pixels inside the sensor to do AF. The Dual-pixel AF technology uses to sub-photo diodes to acquire AF and hence your sensor doesn’t have any single dead pixels.

ISO Range

canon-iso-image

If you look at the ISO range of the current Canon 5D Mark IV, its much improved compared to the Canon 5DS camera. The standard ISO range of the Canon 5D Mark IV as well as the expandable ISO range both are better.

The Canon 5D Mark IV features 30 MP FF sensor whereas the Canon 5DS features 50MP FF Sensor, more megapixel on the same sensor plane means smaller photodiodes. When the sensor Photodiode becomes small it become less sensitice to light. Canon 5DS camera is not made to perform in low-light environment. It does need a well controlled environment to deliver optimal result.

Advance AF System :

Touch and shoot Canon 5D Mark IV imageThe new Canon 5D Mark IV system uses touch and shoot / track technology with the help of High Speed Dual-Pixel CMOS AF system.

The Canon 5DMark IV DSLR uses two different types of AF system

  1. Dual-pixel CMOS AF Sensor for Fast AF during still and video
  2. 61 Point Phase AF module 41 cross-type (f/8 support at all points)

The Canon 5D Mark IV features advance Phase AF module whose All 61 point AF system is compatible with F8 aperture whereas Canon 5DS center point only support F8 aperture. The other major advantage Canon 5D Mark IV is Dual-Pixel AF system that enables super fast AF while shooting with live-view or video. The Canon 5DS features a contrast detect sensor AF become slow and sluggish when you s them for shooting in live view or video.

Video:

Canon 5D Mark IV Canon 5DS
4096 x 2160 (4K), 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), 1280 x 720 (HD)
 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), 1280 x 720 and 640 x 480

The Canon 5D Mark IV can shoot 4K videos on the whereas the Canon 5DS remain limited to Full HD mode only. The Canon 5D Mark IV record 4K video with an ideal 1:1 pixel sampling ratio and while recording Full HD video it uses the entire Full frame sensor. The 4K video is recorded using a central 4096 x 2160 area of the sensor at a 1.74x crop so there is still a lot of space of improvement left for Canon 5D Mark IV camera. BTW, it is better than Canon 5DS.

Wireless connectivity

The Canon 5D Mark IV feature built-in WiFi and NFC connectivity as well as GPS module. The NFC also allow you to enable remote shooting from your smartphone. The camera also compatible with CS100 Connect Station.

Conclusion:  We highly recommend you to get the Canon 5D Mark IV camera, the camera features new sensor, advance AF system and a option to record 4K videos. Canon also introduced Dual-Pixel AF mode, that allow photographers to fine tune AF after the shot is taken.

Canon 5D Mark IV vs Sony A7R II vs Panasonic GH4

Canon 5D Mark IV vs Sony A7R II vs Panasonic GH4 High ISO Video test done between all these three ultra-popular camera. Before we begin just take a look what Tony said about the test

If video usability is important to you, we recommend the GH4. If video quality is more important, get the a7R II or even better, the A7S II. Order the 5D Mark IV at (though clearly not for its video capabilities)

canon-5d-mark-iv-video-test

I always look test videos carefully before I publish them to my blog. So, while looking at the 5DMK4 latest test video I always noticed the Canon 5D Mark IV sample is more sharp (at 100%) compared to Sony A7R II and Panasonic GH4. Why?
It may be due to several reason, type of lens used or may AF was not set on tony face, whatever. But again, if I look at the test video 5DMkIV sample look more sharp and usable.
