Canon 1D Mark IV prototype

I was able to handle a Canon 1D Mark IV body while I was at DEMA (but wasn't allowed to take files from it). We took some photos at ISO 25,600 (using the new image-stabilized 100mm macro lens), and it was crazy clean!

Luckily, owners of underwater housings for the 1D Mk III will be able to use the same housing for this camera. The only issue is that housings typically don't have access to the FEL button, which is the button used for starting and stopping video. It shouldn't be a big challenge to overcome.
