Still having doubts about how shitty the rumor industry is? A few days ago, a…
This appears to be a try to stray fake rumors for the fun of doing it. However, our mission is to report any Canon rumor, so we won’t miss this. EOS 5Dx is the latest rumored moniker for the upcoming EOS 5D Mark IV.
The following “rumor bits” were posted in the DPReview forum:
The Digic 7 is going to be a quad core cpu which will allow 4x the processing power for high MP, high frame rate bodies. The 5DX will contain one Digic 7 and the 1DX Mark II will contain 2 Digic 7s and 1 Digic 6. The Digic 6 will be for metwring and other smaller tasks. The 1DX will have a different larger battery while the 5DX will keep going with the same.
This next processor from Canon will be class leading and will be much faster than whats currently out. It will have multicores. The processing power will be equivalent to a laptop from years ago.
All posts are from the same forum user, which concludes:
Keep in mind 1DX Mark II, 5DX and 6D Mark II coming out in a matter of months.
While all this sounds at least plausible, I would take it with a huge amount of salt. It’s not the first time that hoax-rumors are posted in forums. We do not expect the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II to be announced in 2015, both cameras are expected in Q1 2016.
What about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II? The EOS-1D X Mark II could indeed be announced towards the end of 2015. But will it come at the August 14th announcement? Probably not. We expect the Rebel SL2 and two lenses to get announced in August. However, the EOS-1D X just got a $700 price drop, and some people sees this as a proof for an imminent announcement.
What do you think about this rumor, whishful thinking or real thing?
