(CW3) Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Specification Surface (24MP, Dual Pixel AF, 4K, Anti-Flickr, New AF System)

Canon RumorCanon Rumor

I got some specifications (thanks) for the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (we expect the announcement in August 2015).

It’s not much and it is what common sense easily suggests the EOS 5D Mark IV might feature. The 4k rumor is not new. The rumor says the EOS 5D Mark IV will sport all the latest Canon technology, and lists (I give some subratings):

  • 24MP sensor – (CW2)
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF III – (CW4)
  • New and more advanced AF system (compared to EOS 5D3) – (CW4)
  • 4k video – (CW4)
  • Anti-flickr technology (seen first on the 7D Mark II) – (CW4)
  • Improved video features – (CW5)
  • Crop mode (featured on the upcoming EOS 5Ds) – (CW3)
  • ISO 100-51200 (H1: 102400, H2: 204800 – (CW3)

Not much to be honest, and nothing you wouldn’t expect after a bit of reasoning. Since the feature set is at plausible, I rate the overall rumor CW3 even if it comes from a new source. Stay tuned for more.

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
  • CW5 – as good as certain to be true

    “Dual Pixel CMOS AF III”… ummm… that’s 2 different sensor-based AF technologies (DPAF and CMOS AF). I could be wrong, but I don’t think it could have both…?

      well it´s fantasy from a moron anyway…. anyone can write rumors and they will get published.

    • canonwatch

      why 2 different sensor-based AF techs? There is only one: Dual Pixel AF.

      • Jonathan

        I meant to say “DPAF and CMOS AF II” are 2 different technologies – the first is in the 70D and 7D Mark II, the second is in the M2 and SL1. There is currently no second generation of DPAF (ie, DPAF CMOS AF II) so how do we jump to version 3?

  • MikeD

    36mp and 8fps. That, I’d like :)

    • l1

      28-30 mp would be enough for me.

  • Eno

    It’s more like a wish list than a rumor but I hope at least it will recording 4K video.

    • Panzerfaustnl

      Why 4K, I want RAW

      • Eno

        If it’s recording compressed 4K, than maybe ML will hack it for a RAW 4K.

  • Dual pixel for video or live view at the expense of focus speed and processor utilization of the graphics engine. Phase detect via the AF sensor during stills for maximum speed/focus tracking and utilizing the dedicated AF sensor.

    August is way too late..
