SUPERCHARGE YOUR MOVIEMAKING
The new Canon Log^ feature enables the EOS 5D Mark IV camera to record 4K and HD video
files with expansive dynamic range and wide exposure latitude, making it simple to coordinate
colour settings with other Canon cameras in multi-camera set-ups. It’s ideally suited for
extensive post-production processing.
^ The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera does not come standard with Canon Log. The Canon Log feature can only be used with the
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Body with Canon Log option or using an upgraded version of the current EOS 5D Mark IV camera.
IMAGE CHARACTERISTICS
Canon Log helps record images for postprocessing that feature a wide dynamic range.
Captured 4K and Full HD video files feature
suppressed contrast and sharpness and
increased dynamic range of up to 800% or 12
stops (at ISO 400 or above). This means more
detail in the highlights, enhanced details in the
shadows, and because of its balanced image
quality – the flexibility to work with colour
saturation and tone to create a specific look, or
to match other recorded media. A View Assist
setting provides a preview on the LCD monitor
of how an image may look with post-processing
characteristics.
LOOK UP TABLE
The Canon Log feature includes two Look Up
Tables (LUTs) that correct the recorded image’s
gamma and colour space when viewed on an
external monitor. With Canon Log 10 to Wide DR
LUT, the video file is converted to Wide Dynamic
Range gamma, with well-preserved highlights and
shadow detail. With Canon Log 10 to ITU-R BT.709
While these tables show LUTs based on 10-bit input, the output for
LUT, the file is converted to ITU-R BT.709,
an EOS 5D Mark IV camera featuring Canon Log is 8-bit.
providing conventional camcorder specs for
viewing in a colour space consistent with an HDTV.

NOTES ABOUT IMAGE QUALITY WITH CANON LOG:
When Canon Log is set, horizontal noise stripes may appear in movies depending on subject or
shooting conditions. It is recommended to shoot a few test movies and check before the actual
shooting. Note that noise may become more noticeable especially when you apply strong contrast
during colour grading of the shot movie.
Horizontal noise stripes tend to appear when the subject is dark and flat or [Peripheral illum.] is set to
[Enable]. This noise may also appear when ISO speed is relatively low, such as at ISO 400.
When the noise is noticeable, it is recommended to set [Peripheral illum.] to [Disable], shoot in brighter
exposure, and perform brightness adjustment during colour grading. Also, noise may be decreased
when you shoot at ISO speed lower than ISO 400 (even though the dynamic range will be narrowed).
