Canon 1D Mark IV

A few hours ago, Canon Inc. released a new Pro DSLR "the Canon 1D Mark IV" to replace its previous Canon 1D Mark III model.   It features a new 16.1 megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor with improved ISO sensitivity from 100 - 12,800 (standard) to 50 - 102,400 (expanded).  It also features dual DIGIC 4 image processors, full HD Video and improved AF points.

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.
