Canon 5D Mark IV – Technology With Future


Canon 5D Mark IV testing is now started, the 5D Mark IV test models are now out for selected photographers, if everything goes according to plan than Canon 5D Mark IV announcement is expected on Q4 of 2015.


We do believe that Canon 5D Mark IV will introduce new ultra fast Digic 7 image processor and upcoming Canon 1-DX Mark II will use Dual Digic 7 image processor. It’ll be released with 4K resolution technology.

The 5D Mark IV is expected towards the end of the year and hopes are high that the test camera is a draft of sorts.

But while 4K video, super high ISO and a substantially boosted burst mode will be greatly appreciated by some, a possible decrease in the sensor’s megapixels could rain on their parade. The source states that the 5D Mark IV will be a rather standard update to the 5D Mark III, and that the 5D Mark IVc will be the video-centric camera that brings 4K video recording and some of Canon’s Cinema technology (e.g. the C300 Mark II’s dual-channel readout) to the 5D line. The standard 5D Mark IV will not have 4K, the source says. There are also specs being mentioned that may paint a clearer picture of what the two cameras will offer. The 5D Mark IV, on the other hand, is said to be a 28-MP camera with 12.fps shooting, Dual Pixel AF III, advanced AF technology, anti-flicker technology, crop mode, and an ISO range of 100-204800.

Canon is working on or testing before making final decisions regarding what hits the market. “So the big question is if Canon will really make a 5D Mark IVc beside the 5D Mark IV,” Canon Watch tells us. “My guess is they will, though it may have a different moniker.”

We should be hearing about the 5D Mark IV — and now possibly the 5D Mark IVc — later this year.


Andrew Reid over at EOSHD is hearing a conflicting report from a tipster, who wrote that the 5D Mark IV will be limited to shooting 1080p in Canon LOG to not overshadow Canon’s new cinema cameras.
