(CW1) Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Coming With 18MP?
A weird rumor was posted at Canon Rumors. A “test camera” is mentioned, which “could” be the EOS 5D Mark IV. However, the specs are weird:
- 18mp Full Frame CMOS
- ISO 100-204,800
- 61 AF Points (all crosstype)
- Dual CFast
- 4K Video Capture
While we were the first to report that he 5D4 will have 4k video ob board, it looks somewhat strange that Canon will lower the megapixel count on the EOS 5D Mark IV. It’s 22MP on the EOS 5D Mark III and I can’t really figure out while it should be 18MP on the next iteration. The rest of the suggested specs are at least credible. But then: I think Canon will feature a new auto-focus system on the 5D4. I think the 5D4 rumor I got some weeks ago is more realistic.
I rate this rumor as CW1 since it doesn’t sound very plausible to me. What do you think?[via CR]
