The 16-megapixel Canon EOS 1D Mark IV is a camera targeted at sports and action photography offering 16 megapixel images (4896 x 3264) from a 27.9 x 18.6 mm sensor. If its sensor were scaled to full-frame dimensions of 35.9 X 24.0, it would be a 26.6 megapixel camera.
Sensor size and focal length
The sensor dimensions mean that there is a 1.3X field-of-view crop, which might give pause for wide-angle shooters, but could be very appealing for telephoto users:
16mm => 20.8mm
21mm => 27.3mm
50mm => 65mm
100mm => 130mm
200mm => 260mm
300mm => 390mm
Telephoto users will love this camera for its high quality 16 megapixel images, results further enhanced with effectively being able to shoot an equivalent 260mm f/2 and a 390mm f/2.8.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
