Canon is rumored to announce a DSLR camera with a high-megapixel full frame image sensor by the end of 2014, while the company will remain quiet at NAB Show 2014.
Update (January 13, 2015): More recent rumors have revealed that Canon will replace the 5D Mark III with three different cameras and only one will be called 5D Mark IV.
The rumor mill is “agreeing” that Canon will only launch three DSLR cameras throughout 2014. One of them has already arrived in the body of the Canon EOS 1200D / Rebel T5 / Kiss X70.
The second model is most certainly the Canon 7D Mark II, which is poised to replace the EOS 7D around the Photokina 2014. As for the third model, the most reliable information suggests that it will consist of a full frame DSLR with a big number of megapixels.
No new Canon Cinema EOS cameras at NAB Show 2014
Gossip talks have been hinting that Canon will be putting a great show at the NAB Show 2014 (National Association of Broadcasters) in April.
The company had been believed to launch a pair of Cinema EOS cameras. However, more recent details are revealing that this is no longer the case and the company will have another event without any product announcements.
It is still worth mentioning that this is just a rumor and our readers should take it with a grain of salt. Canon may or may not launch a new camera at the NAB Show 2014, but we will have to wait until early April to find out.
Big megapixel camera could shoot 4K videos and could be the Canon 5D Mark IV
Moving further away from the NAB event, we are hearing more and more information about a new Canon full frame DSLR camera. The device is supposed to feature a high count of megapixels, although whether it is around 75 or 45 remains to be seen.
Sources are talking about a Canon EOS 3D camera, which does not mean that the Japanese company is launching a shooter capable of capturing 3D photos. In fact, it refers to a DSLR in the 5D Mark III series.
The new camera could be a Canon 5D Mark IV instead of Canon 1D X replacement as initially rumored. What is almost certain, however, is that we are looking at a big megapixel camera which will be pricier than the Canon 5DMK3, which is available for more than $3,000 at Amazon.
Among its specs list, we will find the ability to shoot 4K videos and a lot of features for videographers. This surely makes it sound like a Canon 5D Mark III replacement or “bigger brother”, but we will have to wait for more information before giving any final verdicts.
