Adorama pays top dollar for your used gear.

I use these stores and ScanCafe. I can't vouch for ads below.

There is no Canon 5D Mark IV yet, although if I die before it comes out and can't update this page, this will be the link to order it from Adorama.

It should run 7 FPS and add many of the new features from the 7D Mark II, namely light-sensitive time-shifting to allow great shots under flickering sports arena lighting.

Recommendations         top

Intro   Specs   Recommendations

For a shoot today, buy the 5D Mark III and never look back. There is always something new coming that we can't get today. If you have photos to make today, you can't make them with a camera you can't get.

There's always some next great thing that we can't buy today, so forget about the Canon 5D Mark IV until it really becomes available.

Even if announced today, it will be months or more before anyone will get one.


Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.
