The interesting thing with this rumor: it comes from an unexpected site. It’s online retailer DigitalRev on their blog to post the latest suggestion about the EOS 5D Mark III replacement. They also suggest the moniker EOS 5Dx, something we leaked last year. To sum up what they posted:
- 4K will be on board
- A new Auto-Focus system based on 1D X Mark II is suggested
The new 5D will also include Canon Log and Wide DR gamut, allowing the camera to capture a much wider dynamic range and opening up more possibilities in post. The camera will reportedly include both a CFast card slot and an SD card slot, presumably to accommodate 4K video.
The 5DX is already in testing with a select number of photographers, and should be ready for production once any software bugs have been ironed out.
Things are getting interesting, and all of our EOS 5D Mark IV rumors are hitting the web again. As I wrote many times, 4K on the EOS 5D Mark III replacement is no longer a matter of speculation but a matter of common sense. Would it be possible for Canon to announce such a camera without 4K on board? Don’t think so.
I rate the rumor about 4K on the EOS 5D Mark IV with CW4, the suggestion about the moniker EOS 5Dx as CW3.
