Canon EOS 1D IV High ISO night images and letter readability test

Hello!

I am a sports photographer who want to try my hands at more serious landscapes and macro work too. Having the lenses I need, I decided that the EOS 1D IV might be a good choice to increase my capabilities since in the digital age the camera definitely plays a role. The same might be true for others who are interested in this fine camera.

I have made two tests which should give some indications of what can be expected from the 1D IV in available light and how detail is preserved at high ISO. The results should be relevant to many types of photography. In my opinion, the 1D IV is suitable for all sorts of nature photography including landscape, birds and animals, macro and what you can imagine. That is, it has the same characteristics as the 1D III but due to its greater number of pixels it should do even better with landscapes and its high ISO performance is desirable for animal photography during dusk and dawn and for all sorts of photojournalism.

So, let us see the pictures.
