Canon EOS 5D Mark IV specification speculations [CW2]

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Specification Speculations [CW2]

A rehash of anything that has been suggested in the past about the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV surfaced as spec list on the web.

Be aware that it is still early for reliable leaks about the EOS 5D Mark IV‘s specifications (expected to be announced before Photokina 2016). As plausible as the list below may seem, it is not a spec list coming from a known source, or a reliable one, though it seems plausible.

  • 24.2MP Sensor
  • 61 AF Points (41 crosstype)
  • DIGIC 7+ (Single)
  • 7fps
  • ISO 100-51,200 (expandable options)
  • 3.2″ touchscreen LCD
  • CFast/SD card slots
  • Wifi built-in
  • GPS built-in
  • BG-E20 battery grip
  • LP-E20 battery
  • Slight weight reduction

Take anything with a proper amount of salt, especially the sensor resolution and having both WiFi and GPS on board. I got different suggestions about the sensor resolution, and so far Canon did not implement both GPS and WiFi in their highly weather sealed bodies (but there is a recent patent that shows how it can be done). The sensor resolution that has been suggested by my sources is 28MP, but for the time being I can not confirm it.

Interesting to note that 4K is missing in the list above. I am pretty sure the EOS 5D Mark IV will feature 4K (anticipated by us back in July 2014). We got many hints about 4K on the EOS 5D Mark IV, as did others.

Stay tuned for more…

New speculations about Canon’s next announcement dates (EOS 5D Mark IV, 6D Mark II, M4)

canon rumors

Some new suggestions about Canon’s next announcements surfaced on the web.

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV: announcement in August 2016, Release in September/October.
  • Canon EOS M (High end model): announcement in October 2016, Release in November/December.
  • Canon EOS 6D Mark II: announcement in February 2017, release in March/April.
  • Canon EOS M4: announcement in February 2017, release in March/April

Please note that some of the dates listed above have been adjusted around four or five times. The only announcement date that’s a safe bet is the EOS 5D Mark IV date. It’s very likely the EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced late Summer 2016, ready for Photokina in September. This got confirmed from my sources. The other dates are better taken with a grain and of salt, though an announcement of the EOS 6D Mark II in 2017 starts to appear to be likely.

It’s also suggested that the EOS 6D Mark II might have the same sensor resolution as the EOS 5D Mark IV, i.e. 24MP. We got somewhat different information and we are trying to learn more.

Canon prosumer mirrorless camera eventually coming in 2016? [CW2]

Canon Prosumer Mirrorless Camera Eventually Coming In 2016? [CW2]

New bits about Canon’s mirrorless plans surface on the web. The rumor suggests there will be two Canon mirrorless cameras set to be announced in 2016. One should be the replacement for the EOS M3, the other one may be the fabled full-frame mirrorless camera many of us would like to see.

The EOS M3 replacement is said to come with the sensor of the Canon EOS 80D and to have some minor ergonomic changes. The other, the full-frame mirrorless camera, is said to be “prosumer-oriented”, and to feature a newly designed 24MP sensor. And it should be possible to use EF lenses.

Finally, there may also be new EF-M lenses set to come.

This rumor strongly recalls an interview with Masaya Maeda of last year.

Stay tuned…

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – previously leaked specs get confirmed, and a price suggestion

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – Previously Leaked Specs Get Confirmed, And A Price Suggestion

Everyone appears to be desperately trying to get his hands on some fresh Canon EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. Understandable, since the EOS 5D Mark IV will likely be the hottest camera of 2016.

Some of the specs previously leaked first here on Canon Watch got another rehash and found their way to the web. Latest murmurings has it that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will feature 4K (as we wrote in July 2014), GPS and WiFi, and a touchscreen. All things you should already know if you follow CW. However, there is a new bit of information: the price. The EOS 5D Mark IV is suggested to go to market at $3,500, which is exactly the price tag the EOS 5D Mark III had at launch.

I think this specs are reliable. They also make sense from a pure common sense point of view. The rumored announcement date is still late Summer 2016, in time for Photokina 2016.

Stay tuned…
