More Canon EOS-5D Mk IV Camera Talk

Canon EOS-5D Mk IV camera

The Canon EOS-5Ds and EOS-5DsR cameras are available everywhere now. DxOMark recently came out with their sensor score on the camera and compared it to the Nikon D810 and Sony a7R.
I have a post comparing the EOS-5D Mk III to the EOS-5Ds for those who are contemplating buying either camera or upgrading to one. The current 5D3 is an excellent camera and my pick as the best value in full frame photography.

My attention is focused on later this year when Canon plans a second round of upgrade to their full frame camera lineup by announcing the EOS-1D X Mk II and EOS-5D Mk IV. Both cameras are expected to have new sensors and processors with unmatched dynamic range and high ISO performance. The EOS-1D X Mk II is expected to be announced first, perhaps in Q4 with an end of year to Q1 2016 delivery date.

The EOS-5D Mk IV may be announced Q1 to Q2 of 2016, with delivery in the following quarter. Canon has invested a lot of time and money into these two cameras. They are putting on an invitation only Exposition (once every 5 years) in New York City and Paris in September, 2015. There may be some development coming out of these two events. Keep checking back for the latest development.

Possible specs for EOS-5D Mk IV :

  • Burst rate 8 to 10 fps
  • Camera may have 4K video
  • Comes with new sensor and processor
  • DIGIC 7 processor (unlikely)  DIGIC 6+ (most likely)
  • Current test cameras have mid 20 to 30 MP sensors (24MP most likely)
  • May share the same AF system as EOS-1D X Mk II
  • Improved material and egornomics
  • Possible announcement date - Q1 - Q2, 2016, after C300 Mk II and EOS-1D X Mk II

Hoping my slowly tiring 5D3 shutter will last that long...

The 5D line is great. My original EOS-5D is still going strong after 10 years. A new shutter is not that expensive these days.
