Canon 5D Mark IV Rumored to Use C300 Mark II Technology, Coming Summer

The upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV sensor will use the same dual-channel readout technology used in the new announced Canon EOS C300 Mark II camcorder. It has been a while since the last time the rumor mill has mentioned the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera. According to the source, the announcement for the EOS 5D Mark IV is not expected until late summer at the earliest.

The source says:

… this essentially works as a hardware implementation of what the Magic Lantern guys did with software, and actually takes it a bit further.

The Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR will come packed with a 28-megapixel full frame sensor that shoots 4K videos. But currently, the 4K video shooting feature hasn’t confirmed yet.

Additionally, an improved image processor will power the camera in order to allow users to capture 9fps in burst mode. Its maximum ISO sensitivity could reach 204,800, while its autofocus system will most likely be the 61-point model from the 5DS and 5DS R cameras.

Stay tuned for more info.
