More details about the next-generation Canon EOS 5D-series DSLR have surfaced on the web, as the 5D Mark IV is expected to become available in October for a price similar to the one of its predecessor.
Photographers have been expecting it for years, but this DSLR is not in a hurry to show up on the market. Some sources said that it would be revealed around the National Association of Broadcasters Show 2016, but we recently determined that this is not going to happen and that the camera will be introduced in anticipation of Photokina 2016.
Plenty of tidbits are now leaking online and among them we have found the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV release date and price details, as well as some specifications. According to trusted people, the DSLR will begin shipping shortly after its official launch.
Latest Canon EOS 5D Mark IV release date details: DSLR coming shortly after Photokina 2016
The successor to the 5D Mark III is one of the most anticipated cameras on the market. The current generation was launched in March 2012 and a lot of things happened in the meantime, therefore a new and improved shooter must be announced soon.
Insiders who have shared spot-on information in the past are now reporting that the Canon 5D Mark IV released date is October 2016. The DSLR will be revealed in late August or early September, as previously reported, so sometime in October 2016 seems like a reasonable expectation.
It is worth noting that the camera has a slim chance of showing up towards the end of September. However, people should not count on it as the Photokina 2016 event ends on September 25, so it is unlikely that the Japanese company will begin shipping its asset that quickly after the world’s biggest digital imaging show.
Canon will sell the EOS 5D Mark IV for a similar price to that of its predecessor
For the time being, it is kind of soon to speak about the specifications and we have said this many times. Nevertheless, some things will definitely make their way into the EOS 5D Mark IV. This list includes WiFi connectivity, GPS functionality, and 4K video recording.
Some other specs are said to consist of a touchscreen and dual card slots. An insider claims that one slot will support CFast cards, albeit the information is not coming from a known source. This usually happens in the flagship segment, as the EOS 1D X Mark II has dual card slots and one of them is designed for CFast cards.
Finally, the Canon 5D Mark IV price will stand around the $3,500 mark. This was the price tag at 5D Mark III’s launch, therefore potential buyers should not expect major differences in this department.
A lot more details will be leaked soon and, in the meantime, take these ones with a grain of salt!
