Just three days ago, the new Canon 5D Mark IV dropped, and while it's a great stills camera, all of the talk has been about what it can and can't do in the video department. This video takes a much closer look at many of those features in the Mark IV, going through menu functions and showing examples. I've included a list of the topics covered along with their time in the video within the article below.
First off, if you've been out camping all weekend and haven't been brought up to speed, go have a look at Vanessa Joy's review video, which covers most of the notable components of the 5D Mark IV.

Whether or not you're interested in this camera, there are some cool features to be found here. The 5D has come a long way from the original Mark II, where we had to trick the exposure lock just to set our aperture for movie shooting.
