[UPDATE 8/25/16: The Canon 5D Mark IV has been officially announced and will ship September 8. Check it out here at B&H Photo.]
We’ve been talking about the Canon 5D Mark IV for so long, it’s hard to believe that the camera is almost here. The amount of images and specs that have now leaked and corroborated among several outlets leave the official announcement as a mere formality.
The camera should be announced next week and is expected to be available within a month. As such, it should be a monster seller.
So, what is the fuss about?
Pretty much everything we’ve reasonably asked for… [Read more…]
It appears that legit final specs for the Canon 5D Mark IV are starting to leak out via Canon Rumors with a couple of interesting departures from what we’ve seen in the past. Notably, a 30MP full frame sensor and no CFast card slot are features that are likely to stir the pot of opinions among Canon shooters.
Canon 5D Mark IV Specs
- Compact Flash/SD Card Slots (No CFast)
- 24/30fps @ 4K
- 60fps @ 1080
- 120fps @ 720
- USB 3
- Cable release port moved to the front of the camera where the “Mark XX” badge was.
- A lot more touchscreen functionality than the EOS-1D X Mark II
- Other ergonomic changes, such as a new “locking switch” on the rear of the camera.
Canon Rumors says it expects to receive more details on the upcoming Mark IV over the next few days. If you recall, we expect the official announcement date to be August 25, 2016.
If these reportedly leaked specs are true, what do you think about the 5D Mark IV so far?
Of course, many more rumors could come and go between now and the expected August 25 announcement date. This latest info comes from a tip over at Canon Rumors, which also points out the marketing convenience of a 30MP sensor when sandwiched between the 5Ds, 1D X Mark II and 6D Mark II models. At 30MP, the camera wouldn’t step on any toes and would give other models room to grow without becoming redundant.
Does a 30MP sensor matter to you when considering a 28MP, 24MP or 22MP option?
The 5D Mark IV has been in the rumor mill shortly after the launch of the 5D Mark III. The final spec list is still unknown but several key specs have been rumored in recent months. Here are the rumored specs thus far: [Read more…]
Canon has issued a firmware update for the 1D X Mark II that addresses the recently-published image corruption problem with certain SanDisk CFast 2.0 cards. The firmware update specifically provides the following improvements:
- Incorporates countermeasures for a phenomenon in which the bottom part of still images recorded to SanDisk CFast cards become corrupted.
- Enhances communication reliability between the camera and CFast cards.
If you are using the affected CFast cards, after having updated the Camera Firmware to Firmware Version 1.0.2, please make sure to use the camera to format the CFast card.
You can download the new firmware update here on Canon’s website.
