Ken Rockwell Speculates about the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (36MP, $3800, 7fps, 7D2’s AF)

This is an unusual source for a Canon rumor, a new entry among the many contradicting and confusing Canon rumor mills.

Ken Rockwell posted some speculations about the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, and they are less absurd than someone may think. In substance:

  • 36MP sensor
  • $3800
  • 7fps
  • Auto-focus system of the EOS 7D Mark II
  • 98% viewfinder coverage
  • 3.2″ display with 1,280,000 pixels
  • 2 CF card slots
  • Announcement March 17 2015
  • Available late April 2015

All in all these specs are more plausible than many people may think (and possibly more plausible than all the things the hyper-active rumor mills may spit out in the next months).

What I can confirm from rumors I got so far (all from anonymous sources) are the announcement in Q1 2015 and the AF system. Not mentioned by K. Rockwell is 4k video recording, something I was tipped more than once.

What do you think?

Two Lands – A Jaw-Dropping Time Lapse Shot in Iceland and Greenland (EOS 5D Mark III)

Los Angeles-based photographer Joe Capra of Scientifantastic made the video. It’s a journey into the wild landscapes made of snow and ice in Iceland and Greenland, and with a spectacular aurora borealis. Shot with three EOS 5D Mark III and various lenses, the video took 3 days of shooting in Iceland and 4 days in Greenland.

Enjoy!
