How can I zoom in to check the focus of an image in review mode?

We recommend adjusting the set button to magnification so that you can easily zoom in on your image to check the focus is accurate - which is easy to do with one hand! You can also zoom using the touch screen.

How can I take a quick video with my Canon 5D Mark IV?

You can simply go to the live view button and flick the button towards the red video camera symbol to start and stop recording. This is really useful when you want to take a quick video without having to go into settings.

How can I extend the battery life of my new camera?

When you’re out on a long shoot, it goes without saying that your battery will eventually die and there isn’t much you can do about that. Having a spare battery handy is essential. You never know when you’ll be in the perfect moment and your battery runs out.

How can I protect my Canon 5D Mark IV?

Keep your new camera safe by carrying it around in a bag or case that suits your needs. You can never have too many bags. A blower brush is also a good idea to keep your camera clean and dust free.
