Canon 5D Mark IV Here

Get Canon 5D Mark IV at at B&H Photo and my Canon DSLR wishlist and other wish lists.

Adobe Camera Raw unsupported file type

The Canon 5D Mark IV is here. Nice camera—Canon has stepped up its game on the menu system, and the touch screen (which I rarely use on any camera) is actually quite handy for entering things like copyright info.

I remain disappointed that neither Nikon nor Canon see fit to offer an optional hot-shoe-based EVF option, which would be very nice for some shooting scenarios.

Plate for tripod use: Really Right Stuff has the B5DMkIV plate available for pre-order, but it won’t ship for a few weeks, so I am using the generic BP-CS Multi Camera Plate for now as a workaround. All my gear sports RRS plates.

Unfortunately, Adobe Camera Raw does not yet support either the standard or double-pixel raw format of the 5D Mark IV, so the ISO series I had planned to shoot and present will have to wait until that support is available.

As shown below, the double-pixel raw format is twice the size (almost) of plain raw. The double pixel stuff is going to require special support to extract the extra benefits, so I hope Adobe plans on doing so.
