A fresh batch of Canon 5D Mark IV rumors have been leaked on the web, revealing that the DSLR is coming sometime during the third quarter of the year with a new sensor and 4K video recording.
Canon is expected to replace both the 5D Mark III and the 1D X by the end of the year, albeit the latter’s release date may slip into 2016. Until then, the company’s fans want to hear more about these two devices. Inside sources have now revealed more details about the so-called 5D Mark IV, its specs list as well as its launch and release dates. It is rumored that the shooter will be introduced sometime during the third quarter of 2015 and will be capable of recording videos at 4K resolution.
Latest Canon 5D Mark IV rumors say that the DSLR will record 4K videos thanks to a 28MP sensor
There has been a lot of chatter surrounding the possibility that the 5D Mark III successor will shoot 4K footage. A trusted source says that the DSLR will definitely have this ability.
The latest Canon 5D Mark IV rumors are also saying that the camera will employ a new 28-megapixel full frame image sensor. This is an improvement over the previous leaks, saying that the DSLR will sport a 24-megapixel or an 18-megapixel sensor.
This device will be capable of shooting up to 9fps in continuous shooting mode. If this piece of information becomes true, then the 5D Mark IV will be a great improvement over its predecessor, which comes with a 22.3-megapixel sensor, full HD video recording, and 6fps continuous mode.
Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR camera will be announced sometime in late August or early September
Canon will allegedly introduce the camera in August or September. The 5D Mark III replacement will be shipping later this year, after the 5DS and 5DS R big-megapixel cameras become available in greater numbers across the world.
This is in line with previous Canon 5D Mark IV rumors, stating that the shooter is coming sometime this fall and that it will be released on the market towards the end of 2015.
The source says that 5D Mark IV’s launch might be pushed after the 1D X Mark II’s release because the 5D Mark III is still selling well in some markets, such as Europe. However, it is worth noting that other sources have said that the 1D X Mark II is coming in 2016, so the 5D Mark IV will probably come sooner rather than later. Either way, take this with a pinch of salt and stay tuned!
