Is the 2023 Canon 5d4 worth buying? What lens is good for Canon 5D4?

How about Canon 5d Mark Iv Camera ?

The Canon 5d4 is a high-end SLR 5d series model from Canon,

1. The full-frame digital SLR sensor with 30.4 million pixels is used, which can better retain details. After being magnified, the details will become more prominent. You can cut the picture you want at will, with less loss of details and better picture quality.

2. The Canon 5d4 adopts an all metal body, with solid workmanship and good protective performance, which can adapt to harsh outdoor shooting environments.

3. The Canon 5d4 has good body control and a shoulder screen function, allowing for quick selection of buttons in the focus and focus area, making it very suitable for people with control requirements.

4. Canon 5d4 has many body interfaces, including headphone monitoring interface and flash synchronization interface, which is very suitable for monitoring sound in video shooting.

5. Adopting the Canon 61 point dual core focusing system, the response speed is very fast, and RAW provides greater space for the later stage.

6. Canon 5d4 can capture 1080p 60 frame videos

7. Equipped with WiFi transmission function, it is particularly convenient to link photos to mobile phones. With a continuous shooting speed of 7 photos/second

8. It also has a fully functional touch screen, providing a better shooting and control experience.

9. Canon's color rendering is very good, and the photos taken are clean, transparent, and brightly colored, which looks great without the need for image editing.


1. Shoot 4k 30 frames of video, not oversampling, with 1.7x cropping of the image, and cannot be recorded for long periods of time.

2. The body is relatively heavy, and the shooting range is not very ideal

3. No flip screen

How about shooting videos on Canon 5d4?

Canon 5d4 supports 1080p 60 frame video shooting, with 1.7x cropping for 4k 30 frames. At present, the video shooting performance of the Canon 5d4 is somewhat outdated, but it is also very suitable for beginners to learn and use in video shooting.

Will you buy Canon 5d4 or r6 in 2023?

The future development trend of cameras is micro single cameras. The Canon R6 was released in 2020, and the only drawback of the R6 is its 2010 megapixel sensor, which is sufficient for taking portraits. If it is used for cutting, or shooting scenery, portraits, etc., it is slightly lower.

In terms of imaging, the r6 is a bit sharper than the 5d4, with stronger focusing and better control of high sensitivity and noise. The body is relatively light, and the video performance of the 5d4 is far inferior to the r6.

Disadvantages: RF bayonet lenses are too expensive, and the texture of the body is not as good as the 5D4.

The Canon 5d4 has 30.4 million pixels, making it even more advantageous in photography. It has a good handling experience, a large body, and longer battery life.

In the long run, if it's commercial portrait photography, I recommend 5d4, otherwise I recommend Canon r6.
