The big daddy of digital SLR cameras has arrived — ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.

Packing 16.1 megapixels on an APS-H-sized CMOS sensor, the 1D Mark IV is also laying claim to being the first professional level digital SLR with full high-definition video recording. Nikon's recently announced D3S could have trumpeted this fact but it's only capable of 720p recording.

Burst rates are also a bit special, at up to 10 frames per second with 120 shots able to be captured in succession. Like the D3S, the 1D Mark IV is capable of some pretty impressive high ISO sensitivities, all the way up to 102,400.

The 1D Mark IV will be available in Australia from December, with an Australian price yet to be announced.
