(CW3) No 4k to be featured on EOS 5D Mark IV (but Canon Log instead)?

Canon RumorCanon Rumor

After yesterday’s rumour about two possible EOS 5D Mark IV models (5D Mark IV and 5Dc Mark IV), EOSHD posted a tip they received from a “NAB show visitor […] who had spoken off the record to Canon“:

[Canon] believes a 4K 5D Mark IV would completely overshadow the recently released C100 Mark II and so wouldn’t happen, but that Canon LOG would likely go into the camera to allow shot-matching with the XC10.

Doesn’t sound totally implausible. However, as usual with rumours we have to wait for the very last moment to be sure what is going on in Canon’s labs. The big question is if Canon will really make a 5d4c beside the 5d4. My guess is they will, though it may have a different moniker.

Sometimes rumours refer to prototypes, and not always sources hit the mark when it comes to specs. Take the T6i and T6s as an example. No one knew about these two Rebels until the very last moment, but some of the specs had already leaked. I got this rumour about a DSLR positioned between the upcoming new Rebel and the 70D, but at the time, and for the following months, there were no rumours suggesting two new Rebels (though bits of the specs surfaced). The rumour about a DSLR positioned below the Canon EOS 70D and above the EOS 750D/Rebel T6i turned out to be real, but we didn’t know which model it would be for long time after we got the rumour.

Stay tuned, the EOS 5D Mark IV is coming and we will soon start to know more.

Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 Announced


On1 released Perfect Photo Suite 9.5. Press release:

Introducing Perfect Photo Suite 9.5

We take user feedback seriously. Our team has worked hard the past several months to improve performance and user experience in the latest release of our photo-editing app – Perfect Photo Suite. In this latest release, version 9.5, we’ve improved performance and usability for customers in several areas which include; browsing photos, portrait retouching, processing speed, feature additions, and enhancements.


Browsing photos is one of the key improvements and one of the most important tasks for photographers. Today, photographers use Perfect Browse as a front end to their workflow with other programs like Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop®.


The biggest reason to adopt this workflow is speed. Browsing photos must be fast, period. Improved speed in viewing photos assists in organizing photo libraries and helps determine what photos you want to work on. Specifically, the ability to view large Raw files in detail can take forever with some apps. Not with Perfect Browse. Users will see up to a 50% increase in speed with the latest version. Quickly seeing all the detail in photos without pixilation allows for faster culling, sorting, and rating. Then send your photos with the ratings intact to Lightroom or other applications, faster than ever before.


We’ve also added new features to Perfect Browse, which makes it a great standalone option for getting organized. on1 Albums allow you to create a collection of your favorite photos and provide a fast way to view them without searching. Want to drag and drop photos into an album? It’s simple to do right in Perfect Browse. Select the photos you want to add to the album and drag them to the Album Hot Spot. Photos in an on1 album can live anywhere, whether in the cloud or on your computer.

Faster Retouching and Effects

Another area we’ve focused on is improved speed and performance for portrait retouching and filters in Perfect Effects. Perfect Portrait is now faster than ever for auto face detection, and finding the details of the face, eyes, lips, and mouth. With easier to adjust control points and smoother sliders it makes for much quicker portrait edits. Many of the filters in Perfect Effects have been updated to use the computer GPU to make them much faster.

New Features

In addition to all the performance enhancements, Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 also has some great new features. The Line Mask tool allows you to create a straight path for masking sharp edges where brushing is difficult. Luminosity Masks have also been added for users to work on the luminance values or lighter and darker parts of a photo based on a specific selection.
