Transcode Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 4K MOV to DaVinci Resolve Editing

The Canon EOS 5D series is arguably one of the most recognizable camera lines of the digital age and the Mark IV is designed to appeal to the same wide range of enthusiasts and professionals. Nearly identical-looking to its predecessor, it receives substantial upgrades under the hood, including: a higher-resolution sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus, 4K video capture, an upgraded AF system, a touchscreen, improved weather-sealing, built-in Wi-Fi/NFC, an interval timer and GPS. All this adds up to a camera that fits into Canon’s product line nicely as the all-around full-frame option.

4K video capture is a welcome addition to this Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and users can record in either 24 or 30p, albeit with a 1.64x crop. All footage is captured as Motion JPEG. Additionally, the camera allows for 4K Frame Grabs, effectively giving users 30 fps stills shooting with (Dual Pixel) AF. We’ve seen that the camera suffers from some rolling shutter, but it may still have some merit for capturing the decisive moment when 7fps just isn’t enough.
