More Canon 6D Mark II Rumors

Canon 6D Mark II

Northlight Images reports of an ad in the UK ‘EOS’ camera magazine that includes a “6D Mark 2 day out” later this year.

That’s probably a typo but there have been a deluge of rumors for the 6D Mark II, 5D Mark IV/X and 1D X Mark II lately – and isn’t it a little late in the product cycle to promote an “original 6D day out”?

Previous rumors indicated that the 6D Mark II would feature a smaller body and move up market in price. As Northlight points out, “If the 5D4 becomes some ‘X’ model with 4k video and other whistles and bells, then it might leave space for a move upwards in 6D2 specs.”

Expect the rumor mill to pick up as we approach the next major announcement.

New rumors about the upcoming Canon 5D X have surfaced over at the DP Review forums. The rumors claim that the Canon 5D X will feature a single DIGIC 7 quad core processor, while the upcoming 1D X Mark II will have two DIGIC 7 processors and one DIGIC 6 processor (perhaps the DIGIC 6 processor will be used for AF processing?).

Canon 5D Mark IV Rumors Update

Canon-5D-Mark-IV-Rumors

New rumors from Northlight Images suggest that Canon has a couple of 5D Mark IV variations undergoing field testing – an 18MP and a 24MP camera.

However, the final camera is expected to be 24MP resolution, while the 18MP version is being used to test AF speed and buffer management issues. Additionally, the camera is rumored to shoot less than 8fps.

Even at 24MP, that’s a relatively low resolution after the Canon 5Ds and 5Ds R have now landed at a whopping 50MP.

Previous rumors pointed to a 5D Mark IV camera with 4K video capture and a new flash system. Perhaps Canon will finally integrate the in-body radio trigger we saw years ago in its patent filings?

Additionally, past rumors suggested the 5D Mark IV would be equipped with a 28MP sensor and 9fps shooting speed. It seems we are getting closer to whittling things down and should start to see specs and rumors conform on some of these items.

Stay tuned!
