Canon 5D Mark IV Underwater Camera Review Part I

We’ve put the Canon 5D IV through a series of test dives with surprising auto focus results. Watch the video below for details on this inspiring new feature. Canon 5D IV Underwater Camera Review - Part I Autofocus in Video Mode - YES! As luck would have it, we had poor visibility in Monterey this week, but possibly perfect conditions to challenge the new autofocus features in the Canon 5D IV. The camera routinely snapped autofocus even through our silty conditions. Further, as we tilted the camera from a near subject to a far subject, the focus triggered quickly and with surprising smoothness. We’re not prepared to sound the alarm now, but the new autofocus features in the Canon 5D IV and Canon 1DX II could be a new milestone in video autofocus for underwater image makers. Stay tuned for more details on this topic. Great White Balance and Low Noise Matching our previous Canon experience, the Canon 5D IV offers great color and low noise in our test footage. We were able to get good color on overcast and low visibility days at depths below 50 feet and ISO 1250 maintained low noise in the shadows. Please see our recent articles on the Canon 1Dx II Review and Canon 5D III Review to learn more about how successful Canon has been at underwater color. This new model continues the core features that make Canon a great solution for underwater use. Housing Upgrade Options - MkIII to MkIV If you currently own a Canon 5D III housing, you’ll likely have upgrade options available from most manufacturers. As of the time of this writing, the Subal CD5M4 housing is shipping now and an upgrade path is ready for the Nauticam NA-5DSR Underwater Housing. We expect details on Aquatica, Ikelite, and Sea & Sea shortly. All manufactures will be releasing a dedicated housing for the Canon 5D IV soon. Please contact the Backscatter staff as new details are being released daily.
