About the 5D Mark IV
The 5D Mark III was the first to be called a camcorder replacement and brought DSLR video to a professional level which almost completely eliminated the video camera market. The 5D Mark 4 now features a 30MP full frame CMOS sensor, touch screen, 4K Video (1080p), NFC and Wifi, GPS, enhanced LCD screen and so much more. It provides extreme low light capabilities with ISO up to 32,000, features super quick auto focus and up to 7fps with RAW shooting.

All DSLR housing manufacturers have chosen to make a housing for this camera. Ikelite are the first to ship out their housings in 3 versions (legacy port system, new port system and shallow version) all backwards compatible with the 5D MK III, 5Dr and 5Ds. Aquatica have announced this housing at a super attractive price point, almost $1,000 below the Nauticam housing. Both Aquatica and Nauticam should be shipping towards mid December 2016.
We expect this new release from Canon to become very popular among professional uw photographers and are already receiving many inquiries from 5D Mk III and 5D Mk II users that are looking to upgrade.
