Like the Mark III (its recent predecessor), it features a professional grade magnesium alloy outer and inner body with weather and dust resistant seals and gaskets. It is also capable of shooting at a burst of 10 frames per second and offers a "Live View" mode with autofocusing options.
Aimed at a variety of photographic applications from Photojournalism to Sports, Nature, Industrial and Law Enforcement, the Canon 1D Mark IV promises to be an exceptional tool for the demanding professional.
