We’re back on the waiting game for more info on the upcoming Canon 5D Mark IV. Everyone seems to be feeling good that the 5D Mark IV will be announced in time for Photokina 2016.
Rumors of the Canon 5D Mark IV continue to trickle in. The latest word comes from Canon Rumors, which believes Canon will launch the 5D Mark IV in the August/September time frame ahead of Photokina (in late September).
There are really no reliable specs for the camera at this point. Previous rumors have suggested everything from 28MP to 4K video to CFast card slots. None of those specs are either confirmed or ruled out at this point.
NAB is just about 10 days away, so the rumor mill may pick up a bit over the next couple weeks leading up to whatever Canon’s news is for NAB.
Not that the suggestion of Canon producing a full frame mirrorless camera is revolutionary; however, it is reassuring to hear that one may be in the pipeline.

New rumors from Canon Rumors point to an upcoming Canon 1D X replacement will feature 4K video capture. Unfortunately though, the same rumors say that the 1D X Mark II will be the only next-gen Canon DSLR to offer 4K video capture at launch.
Of course, that would mean that the oft-rumored 5D Mark IV wouldn’t feature 4K video as an option at launch. Does the “at launch” clarification mean that a firmware upgrade could unlock it later down the line?
We have to remember, of course, that these are rumors but I still want to bang my head on the desk at even the suggestion that the next generation of Canon DSLRs will continue to neuter their video capabilities.
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?).
