Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

When we talk about the Canon EOS 5D series we are talking about a new era in the digital camera scenario, and the Mark IV is designed to be not an exception to this rule, nearly identical to its predecessor this camera has a lot of updates under the hood, including high-resolution sensor with the dual pixel autofocus system, 4K video capture and upgraded AF system, improved weather-sealing, a touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi/NFC and others.

It is built around a powerful 30.4MP sensor and uses the Digic 6+ processor. 4K video is a new – and necessary – update in this camera, making it a powerful competitor for its rivals in the market, it can record either 24 or 30p, albeit with a 1.64 crop.

Key specifications are:

  • Improved weather-sealing
  • Built-in bulb timer interval timers 
  • Wi-Fi w/NFC + GPS 
  • 1.62M-dot 3.2’’ full-time touchscreen
  • 150.000-pixel RGB + IR metering sensor 
  • Dual Pixel Raw
  • 7 fps continuous shooting 
  • ISO 100-32000 (expandable to 102400)
  •  New 30.4MP CMOS full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel AF 
  • DCI 4K 30/24p video using Motion JPEG + 4K frame grab 

This camera has too much to offer, and there’s a lot of experts that actually said that this one is going to make a lot of changes in how Canon EOS 5D users see their cameras, the image is solid, the video is beautiful, and the body and handling are nothing different to the previous comments, good. let’s talk about the pros and cons: 

The things we like: 

  • USB 30.0
  • 30.4MP CMOS full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus
  • Impressive AF performance in the video 
  • Flicker detection 
  • Configurable Q menu
  • Responsive touchscreen with excellent interface and usability 
  • 150.000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor
  • Highly customizable AF uses cases 
  • Improved base ISO dynamic range compared to previous Canon DSLRs
  • 4K/30p video + HDR 1080p

What we don’t like:

  • HDMI-out limited to 1080 video 
  • Custom controls could be better
  • No Log gamma, focus peaking, or zebras for video
  • 4K video limited to Motion JPEG 
  • 4K/30p video requires CF card 
  • No way to link spot metering to chosen AF point 
  • 1.64x crop factor in 4K video limits FOV

Julia's Sony Camera

As we say before, here at The Unboxings we actually love Sony cameras because we work with them, which is why we are going to give you the best recommendations for using these awesome cameras on your different camps. 

The Sony A7S II is one of the best shooting cameras out there at the moment, so to understand better how this powerful machine works let’s jump into the specifications.

What we like:

  • Super-high ISO ISO 409.600 maximum
  • Internal 4K video recording 
  • AF system good in low light

What we don’t like:

  • Video record button not ideally placed
  • Expensive and specialist
  • 8-bit rather than 10 or 12-bit video

This camera like the A7 II and the A7R is actually really comfortable to hold, with most controls being easy to reach, this camera is tougher than the original model, reinforced lens mount and more magnesium alloy, it’s also waterproof.

Sony incorporates some new updates in this camera to fight the previous critics of the oldest models some of the new features on this camera are:

  • Bigger grip
  • Shutter release forward on to the top of the grip
  • More standard semi-recessed type dial.

Unfortunately, the video record button is still on the corner of the thumb grip on the back of the camera and it’s awkward to locate and press when holding the camera, But you are free to relocate this button because of the plenty of customization options.

Here at The Unboxing’s studio, The Mark II camera scored about the same or slightly worse than the original model for stills, which can be taken as confirmation that the A7S II has been further optimized for video. comparing video footage from the two cameras we can appreciate that there’s not too much difference between these two.

Sony A7S II shoots 120 fps in low light with Zeiss Loxia 21 and Milvus lenses. 

This company already makes higher resolutions A7-series cameras so it’s able to target this one at low light and video photography without the need to compromise it for a wider audience.

Julia Trotti Lens

This one, in particular, is built very well, being very similar to the other Sigma Art-series lenses this one has a nice metal barrel and a metal mount, the lens feels solid in the hands and balances nicely on both lighter and heavy DSLR cameras.

Focusing with the Sigma 24mm /1.4 is very comfortable, the focus ring is located on the front of the lens barrel and it is very smooth and also easy to rotate, making this lens the perfect candidate for manual focusing.
