Canon testing the 5D Mark IV, could be unveiled in August

We might see the brand new 5D Mark IV as rumours are coming in that the new DSLR could arrive in a couple of months


Canon’s EOS 5D series has been one of the company’s most successful DSLR range as far as professional cameras go. The Mark II and even the Mark III have been quite popular among DSLR users especially in the video department as they have been the choice of many independent as well as commercial film makers. Now we might see the brand new 5D as rumours are coming in that the Mark IV could arrive in a couple of months.

The rumours around the new fourth generation of the 5D say that a handful of photographers closely associated to Canon have already had the opportunity to test out the new camera before the company’s announcement, which will be somewhere in August this year. This kind of testing means that Canon has finalised on the hardware and is probably still working around the software.

Specifications of the camera have not been confirmed but the only information that we have right now is that the camera will yet again focus heavily on video capture.

The new 5D Mark IV could feature 4K recording as well as 1080p video at 120fps by utilising Canon’s new DIGIC 7 image processor. The only other DSLRs from Canon capable of 4K video recording are the high-end 1D X Mark II and the 1D C, which means that the 5D Mark IV will be one of the more affordable 4K video capable DSLRs, though we don’t expect a price tag of less than Rs 2,00,000 for the body only.

Hopefully we will get more scoops on the upcoming camera before the actual announcement.
