(CW3) Canon EOS 5D Mark IV coming late 2015 with 28MP, 9 fps, and 4k

5d3

Northlight Images reports a new 5D4 rumor. According to NL the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will come in late 2015, and only after the new EOS 5DS and 5DS R have started shipping in reasonable numbers.

There are some specs that go with the rumor. The EOS 5D Mark IV is said to feature 28MP, 9fps, and 4k video (4k was rumored first here on CW). Moreover, both the 5D4 and the EOS-1D X Mark II should see an advance in Canon’s flash control features. NL suggests Canon may not put the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R on sale as long as the EOS 5D Mark III is selling good.

We will see if this rumor got it right. For the time being it’s classified CW3. We also got a 5D Mark IV spec list some time ago, which looks more plausible to me. The spec list we got a month ago:

  • 24MP sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF III
  • New and more advanced AF system (compared to EOS 5D3)
  • 4k video
  • Anti-flickr technology (seen first on the 7D Mark II)
  • Improved video features
  • Crop mode (featured on the upcoming EOS 5Ds)
  • ISO 100-51200 (H1: 102400, H2: 204800

About our rumor rating:

  • CW1 – probably fake rumor, not reliable
  • CW2 – rumor from an unknown/new source, but otherwise at least a plausible rumor
  • CW3 – a 50% chance to be real, coming from a known source, or from new source with good insight in Canon’s business
  • CW4 – rumor from a known source that was right in the past, high probability to be true
  • CW5 – as good as certain to be true
