Identical to the 7D.

By the way, the topic of this discussion is the EOS 1D Mk. IV, despite the annoying efforts of some
folks to turn it into something else... I have cheerfully withdrawn all of those posts from public view.

Reaction to 1d Mk IV vs 7d

Just when I was thinking the 7d was going to be the right camera for my needs I find out about the 1d. I was curious about the reaction from those in the know to this camera and how it stacks up against the 7d. Are there features that the 7d has over this? I'm wondering about monitoring as you shoot and overall control. It seems to reason that since it's more expensive that the main features should carry over. Any thoughts?

You're talking about a $5000 camera vs. a $1700 camera. They are in two completely different classes. It's not rocket science -- buy the one you can best afford. In terms of video capability, they are practically identical except for two major differences: the EOS 1D Mk. IV will have astonishingly superior low light recording capability, while the EOS 7D will have a greater telephoto reach due to its larger crop factor.

Yeah, I caught that when I saw it this morning. Got a chuckle out of it because I wasn't expecting to see Charles' name pop up.

I'm waiting for some genius engineer to put the 1D "guts" and a H4n into a small video camera chassis. Super 35mm video with 4 channels of audio. Hmmmmm......

I contacted Vincent after I saw "Reverie" to offer up my services; all these months later, he came a'callin' with this one and I was glad to be involved and see the new camera ahead of time. It was a real pickle getting it rigged up the night of the shoot, took some serious "thinking outside of the box" but the shoot had a great pioneering quality to it, and I was blown away by the 1D's ability to deliver in "impossible" lighting conditions. Unfortunately I had my own shoot the next morning (a narrative piece with the 5DMKII, coincidentally--currently being edited and looks great) so I could only stick around Vincent's shoot for a few setups, would have liked to do more.

The latest 1D Mark IV certainly looks to have included a lot of features that many have been asking for, such as the new LCD screen that has an anti-reflective surface and a 920,000 dot resolution, up from the MK3’s 230,000, and, according to Canon, an updated focusing algorithm. The addition of HD video in Canon's top tier professional 1.3X crop mode body is an indicator to the way the industry is moving.

With video options now slowly moving in to the higher end pro-DSLR arena, I wonder if Canon will also offer video options in the next full frame 1Ds update.

You've never used a Canon 1 series camera, have you? :)
It's not just about features... the 1D is a machinegun of still photography.

Just go down to your local camera shop and shoot a few frames with a 1DmkIV when it comes out... you'll know the difference right away.
If all you want it for is video, and don't need ultra ultra low light, the cheaper 7D is a perfect answer for most.

How does the release of this camera affect the EX1 in any way, shape, or form? They are two TOTALLY different markets. That's like saying that the release of RED was going to kill Panafflex sales/rentals.
