The EOS 5D Mark III
Northlight Images writes:
In a dealer sourced rumour, we’re again told that the 5D mk4 is due for launch at the start of February (in time for CP+ 12th-15th) along with ‘another Canon Pro DSLR’ around the same time.
This is not the first time that the EOS 5D Mark IV is rumored to be announced in 2015. So far very little specs leaked (and/or are speculated). Here at CW we got a rumor some time ago, saying the EOS 5D Mark IV will feature 4k video (which I really hope it will).
It’s still a bit early for reliable EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. Stay tuned…
Mr. Northrup expresses his thoughts also about the recent DxOMark figures for the EOS 7D Mark II sensor. As all Canon sensors, the 7D Mark II sensor scored rather mediocrely. On the other hand this measure has little to do with real life performance (1 | 2 | 3).
More about the EOS 7D Mark II can be seen here. The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is shipping in the US:
- 7D Mark II 18-135mm IS STM KIT – $2,149 – Adorama | B&H Photo | Amazon

Canon released a new firmware for the C300:
Firmware Version 220.127.116.11.00 incorporates the following improvements and fixes:

Firmware Version 18.104.22.168.00 is only for EOS C300 cameras with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied. If the EOS C300 camera does not have Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied, please download Firmware Version 22.214.171.124.00.
