[CW3] First Canon EOS 5D Mark IV test units out in the wild?

Canon RumorCanon Rumor

Have the first Canon EOS 5D Mark IV test bodies been handed out to select photographers? That’s what a new rumour suggests. There are no new specifications to talk about, just some suggestions that the EOS 5D Mark IV will not feature the same DIGIC processor that’s expected to come on the EOS-1D X Mark II. Announcement of the EOS 5D Mark IV is still expected for Q4 2015.

Very little is known so far about the EOS 5D Mark IV. Here at Canon Watch we had a tip that the 5D Mark IV could come in two variants: one more video oriented, the other being a straight update to the EOS 5D Mark III.

Stay tuned…

Nice little video about travel and photography by CanonUSA on YouTube:

When you travel, time seems to fly by. Don’t regret it later because your experiences are too extraordinary to remember with photos that are just “good enough.” The places you go, the people you meet and your adventures of a lifetime are worth getting the right shot with a Canon camera.
