A list of initial Canon 5D Mark IV specs has been leaked on the web, confirming a few details that have been said on previous occasions about this DSLR camera.
Although the eyes of the entire world are set on Canon’s February 6 announcement event, when the 5Ds and 5Ds R big-megapixel DSLRs are expected to be revealed, the company is planning to replace the 5D Mark III later this year.
The 5D Mark III successor is said to pack some interesting features, such as 4K video recording. In order to give us a glimpse of what is coming, an unnamed source has leaked an early Canon 5D Mark IV specs list.
Canon 5D Mark IV specs list to include 204,800 extended ISO sensitivity option
The DSLR might be scheduled to be unveiled sometime in August. However, it appears that the Japan-based company has already made a decision regarding some of the camera’s features.
It is said that the Canon 5D Mark IV specs list will include a full frame image sensor of about 24 megapixels. Previously, sources have said that the 5D Mark IV will get a small megapixel increase over the 5D Mark III, which comes packed with a 22.3-megapixel sensor.
The full frame shooter will also come with a crop mode that is said to be borrowed from the 5Ds and 5Ds R. These two big-megapixel cameras are rumored to offer 1.3x and 1.6x crop modes, so it remains to be seen whether or not both modes are coming to the 5D Mark IV.
As the 5Ds and 5Ds R are focused on resolution, quality, and sharpness, the 5D Mark IV will be designed to perform in low-light conditions. The native ISO sensitivity range stands between 100 and 51,200, while 102,400 and 204,800 ISO modes will be available through built-in settings.
Canon will add plenty of videography features into the EOS 5D Mark IV
The shooter will be able to record videos at 4K resolution. Again, this is something that we have heard in the past. In order to offer even more videography features, the 5D Mark IV will employ Dual Pixel CMOS AF III technology.
Canon’s upcoming mid-range full frame DSLR will employ an improved autofocus system when compared to the one found in the 5D Mark III. It would not be a surprise to see the 61-point (41-point cross-type) AF system from the 5Ds / 5Ds R make its way into the camera.
On the Canon 5D Mark IV specs list, even more videography-related features will be found. This is another information that has been mentioned by a different source.
Last but not least detail, the camera will feature anti-flicker technology, which has been introduced in the 7D Mark II. The system detects on-off pulsing in artificial lighting, so the camera will capture photos only in peak lighting conditions.
Nevertheless, the EOS 5D Mark IV is said to become official in August 2015. There is a lot of time until then so take these details with a grain of salt.
