Canon EOS 5D Mark IV murmurings (nothing really new) [CW3]

Canon RumorsCanon Rumors
A rehashing of old Canon EOS 5D Mark IV rumors in a package mimicking new information surfaced on the web. Some of the suggested specs leaked first here on Canon Watch.

  • The EOS 5D Mark IV will come after the EOS-1D X Mark II announcement
  • Q1 of 2016 is the ship time Canon is aiming for
  • EOS 5D Mark IV will have 4K (we were the first to report this)
  • New Speedlite metering system coming with the EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Sensors ranging from 18mp to 28mp are in testing for full frame cameras. I suppose this implicitly means “in testing for the EOS 5D Mark IV”. We were told something else, and I wonder who really believes the EOS 5D Mark IV will have an 18MP sensor (but see next point)
  • EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R were a test for “two model viability”, a model split of the EOS 5D Mark IV still possible. First reported on Canon Watch, Canon may announce a second, cinema oriented EOS 5D Mark IVc with an 18MP sensor
  • New DIGIC processor

All in all nothing that hasn’t been rumored before. I agree with the possible announcement at the beginning of 2016, though it is still possible that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the end of 2015. The reasons for a 2016 announcement of the EOS 5D Mark IV in 2016 may have to do with issues with the new TTL flash system Canon is developing. Hope we will soon get some fresh EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. All EOS 5D Mark IV rumors.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM vs. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II focus and sound differences in Video Servo mode

Dustin Abbott posted a short video on YouTube that shows the differences in focus quality and sound between the new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and the EF 50mm f/1.8 II, both lenses used on a camera in video servo mode. Well, big differences. Congrats Canon for having made another excellent and inexpensive lens.

LensRentals’ Roger Cicala posted a teaser (on Facebook) of the ongoing Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R testing they started. Read what they say:

Roger [Cicala] has been res testing the new Canon 5ds/ 5dsr cameras all afternoon. Here is a teaser graph for the pixel peepers! (The results are impressive)

While we are waiting for the reviews to show up on the Web, have a look at LensRentals’ teaser image. The results are impressive. Kudos Canon!

The Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R start official shipping tomorrow. However, it’s an open secret that some customers have already got theirs. No name of the shops that are already shipping since it could be that Canon has a sale embargo until June 14.

The Ax Smash Method – An alternative way to deal with DSLR errors

Did you ever experience an error on your DSLR? Well, get ready to meet a guy who solves these problems with crude violence.

You have first to listen to some weirdness the guy speaks out, so jump to mark 4:55 of the video to see how some people likes to cope with camera errors.

The camera getting destroyed is a Canon EOS 70D. I own a 70D, took it everywhere, from deserts to glaciers, I used it in the tropics under the rain, and in many more difficult situations. I am normally not very caring about my gear. It’s gear and is has to do the job. Well, I never, never, experienced an error on my trusty EOS 70D. Before being tempted to destory your EOS 70D, have a look what others make with this fantastic camera (see here too).

A picture of the destroyed EOS 70D was later posted on Instagram, with the caption: “movie recording has stopped automatically” – worst bug ever, the camera had to be destroyed“. Oh, dude, take it easy next time. And why destroy the lens too?
