Best Canon Cameras For Wildlife Videography


The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a perfect all-rounder for wildlife videography and offers exceptional quality with its 30.4Mp CMOS sensor. It shares the same DIGIC 6+ processor as the flagship Canon EOS 1DX Mark II. It has no problem processing dual pixel RAW files. This entry-level professional body is a rugged workhorse that will also let you capture some fantastic 4K video.


If you want the best, you cannot overlook the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II. It may be less portable than the 5D Mark IV. It does offer an incredible burst mode of 14fps. Coupled with a 61-point AF system with 41 individually selectable cross-type points, it can track and lock focus in the most challenging of circumstances.

An incredible dynamic range and low noise when shooting on high ISO allows you to achieve real clarity in your shots regardless of the conditions you are shooting in.


If you are a Videographer Kent then you will want the Canon EOS M50 because the M50 is user friendly and offers outstanding image quality. Its ability to track moving subjects is impressive. It has 143 focus points, eye detection and the ability to select focus-point using the touch-screen display.

Canon Lenses For Wildlife Videography

CANON 100-400MM F/ 4.5-5.6 IS II USM

Its focal range makes it a good all rounder, while its fast autofocus is perfect for capturing fast moving wildlife. Video stabilisation will allow you to stop down a further 4 stops, and of course being an L series, it has a weather sealed body to protect against dust and moisture.


If mobility is not an issue and you are after a greater focal range with a bright aperture (f/4). Then the Canon 500mm f/4L IS II USM is not to be sniffed at. Offering great Video quality and L series quality optics, you can easily override the great USM focusing with manual focusing to refine your Video.


Capturing the best of the natural world does not always mean shooting from afar and the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens is not only an incredible portrait lens. It allows you to capture precision clips up close.

We realise it’s not always just about the fancy camera equipment. We’ve compiled a blog on 11 essential accessories for wildlife Videography. However some smartphones are really good for wildlife photography, read about it here.
