Now it is confimed that the Canon EOS 5D Mark III successor will be called “EOS 5D Mark IV“, not the previous rumored “EOS 5D X”, “EOS 5DC” or “EOS 5DS”. But unfortunately, there is no other information available about the 5D Mark IV.
Canon EOS 5D Mark III ($2,499) is a great all-around camera, but it is not perfect and it is three-and-a-half years old. These days Sony and Fujifilm have vaulted ahead in the innovation game. So, if the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV doesn’t have enough revolutionary upgrade in performance, people will look elsewhere for a camera body solution, like Sony a7RII, Nikon D810. So Canon will have to be careful about the choices made in this camera.
It will be interesting to see what Canon does finally unveil when the 5D Mark IV is announced. Several improvements will be made to the 5D Mark IV when it comes to its specifications. The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will have a new sensor, more megapixels, increased dynamic range and a higher maximum ISO sensitivity.
And the previous report said that this new 5D Mark IV is designed for videographers and filmmakers and it will have the best video features in the entire Canon lineup (not including the cinema line). For videographers, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will offer better video features than the newly-announced 1D X Mark II. And for Canon, video features will become an important part of the development of the camera.
Although the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will most likely not be unveiled at 2016 NAB Show, Canon will reveal some information about the DSLR to some insiders. And this new 5D Mark IV is expected to be announced in August and showcased at Photokina 2016 in September. So, stay tuned for more info.
