Another Mention of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Coming in 2015

EOS 5D Mark IV
The EOS 5D Mark III

In a dealer sourced rumour, we’re again told that the 5D mk4 is due for launch at the start of February (in time for CP+ 12th-15th) along with ‘another Canon Pro DSLR’ around the same time.

This is not the first time that the EOS 5D Mark IV is rumored to be announced in 2015. So far very little specs leaked (and/or are speculated). Here at CW we got a rumor some time ago, saying the EOS 5D Mark IV will feature 4k video (which I really hope it will).

It’s still a bit early for reliable EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. Stay tuned…

Next Canon Full-Frame DSLRs Will Feature Dual Pixel AF (and 6D Mark II has tilt-able display)

Canon Rumor

A trusted source told me that the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II will feature a sensor with Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus technology. Apparently Dual Pixel AF will not come with the EOS-1D X’s next iteration. The same source told me that the EOS 6D Mark II will feature a tilt-able display.

Previous rumor has it that the EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced in 2015, and that it will feature 4k video.

CW’s take:

Dual Pixel AF on Canon’s next enthusiast and semi-pro full-frame DSLRs makes sense. First, Dual Pixel AF is a groundbreaking technology that has to and will be featured on all next Canon DSLRs. Second, Dual Pixel AF is a videographers dream. The 5D Mark IV will be committed to videography as the 5Ds before. Third, Canon just announced their first STM zoom lens with EF mount (i.e. for FF DSLRs), the EF 24-105mm IS STM; Dual Pixel AF and STM lenses work perfectly together. The fact that there is a full-frame STM zoom lens gives some credit to the rumor.

What do you think?

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?

Canon EOS 5D Mark III price check: B&H Photo, Adorama, Amazon USA, Amazon CA, KEH Camera, BestBuy, Canon CA, Canon USA

Just recently a rumor surfaced stating that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the beginning of 2015. Now I have been told (thanks) that the successor of the EOS 5D Mark III could feature 4k video. The feature is going to be implemented, so the source, to further push the 5D into the videographers domain.

Currently Canon is featuring 4k on the EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo). It would be a more than welcome move if the 5D Mark IV would deliver 4k! Canon added HD recording to the EOS 5D Mark II, let’s hope the EOS 5D Mark IV will make the next step. Just to remind: full HD has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4K has a resolution of 4096 x 2160.

Take it with a grain of salt. Canon has been very smart in keeping their plans secret in the last time. It’s still a long time until we will see the EOS 5D Mark IV.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II To Be Announced In 2015?

EOS 5D Mark IV

A new rumor surfaced on the web.

NL got some bits about Canon’s roadmap for their flagship models. The rumor claims that Canon will announce the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II at the beginning of 2015. Both cameras are said to “incorporate significant advances in sensor design“. The buzz is that both DSLRs will feature the new sensor technology that Canon is most likely to announce with the replacement of the EOS 7D.

A replacement of the EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs) and EOS-1D X (price & specs) is at least plausible, both DSLRs were announced in 2012, in March and June, respectively. On the other hand, the EOS 7D (price & specs) was announced 5 years ago and we have yet to see a replacement (though is seems very probable that Canon will announce it towards the end of August.

Take this with the usual pinch of salt, and stay tuned for more news.

Another Mention Of Canon’s High Megapixel DSLR (EOS 3D is back)

EOS 3DEOS 3D

The Canon-high-megapixel-saga grows on a new murmuring, and the fabled moniker “EOS 3D” is back again.

Latest rumors have it that Canon will announce a DSLR named “3D” later this year. The rumor suggests it will be sort of a bigger brother to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs), and not a camera that’s part of the EOS-1 series.

Specifications of the EOS 3D are said to be “broadly similar” to the 5D Mark III, but with “much higher” resolution and 4k video. Price will be higher than the first price of the 5D Mark III. The 3D should be available late 2015.

There is a small possibility, suggested by the rumor source, that the “3D” name was just the name of a prototype undergoing testing, and that the DSLR we are discussing here could indeed be the EOS 5D Mark IV.

Beside that “3D” is a moniker that is rumored since long (and probably never will be seen in the real world), it is also worth to mention that the latest “Canon high megapixel”-rumors are somewhat contradictory. The latest information I got was about a possible 3-layers sensor. I have also been told that this camera could be announced soon. However, Canon Rumors had word that there will be no Canon DSLR announcement at NAB 2014.

Hard to say how many salt is needed here. I don’t think we will ever see a Canon DSLR named 3D, but I think it is rather plausible it could be a name given to test units. I am also pretty sure Canon is working on a high resolution DSLR.

Rumor: 6D Mark II, 5D Mark IV, Studio Camera, new EOS-1 and EOS-1s (and no 3D)

5D Mark IV

The rumor appears to originate from a high level dealer presentation in Japan. The rumor states

  • that the EOS 5D Mark IV will push specs even higher
  • that the rumored Canon “studio camera” will aim at “total image quality”
  • there will not be a 3D
  • by early 2015 there will be 4 new DSLRs: EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark IV, a new EOS-1, and an EOS-1s – two of these camera should be announced next year
  • medium format is “still an option”
