Canon has reportedly started testing the EOS 5D Mark IV as the initial development phase is now complete, while the DSLR’s announcement date is set to take place in the fourth quarter of 2015.
One of the most rumored cameras of recent times has arrived in the hands of a few professional photographers. This DSLR is said to be in a select company and to be ready to be unveiled sometime by the end of the fourth quarter of 2015. The product in question, which has exited its initial development stage, is the Canon 5D Mark IV and it is most likely scheduled to become available on the market in very late 2015.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR enters field testing phase
Many gossip talks have had the EOS 5D Mark IV as their main subject. A lot of things have been said about this full-frame DSLR, but we will have to cast more doubt upon them in the wake of new details being revealed by a reliable source.
There was no secret that Canon was working on this camera for a long time. However, now it has arrived at the point when the camera is ready to get to the next level, which consists of field testing.
A few select photographers are said to be testing the EOS 5D Mark IV in order to provide feedback to Canon concerning the good and the bad things. This way, the company will be able to tweak it and to improve the DSLR so that consumers will enjoy it when it hits the market.
There are no details about possible specifications, but the information is coming from a trusted source. The announcement date of the Canon 5D Mark IV is said to be planned for Q4 2015. The camera will also be released this year, albeit it could occur at its very end.
What is Canon EOS 1D X Mark II’s status?
In the past, it has been said that the EOS 5D Mark IV will feature a 28-megapixel sensor capable of recording 4K videos. A faster sensor readout technology will also be added to the DSLR and a new sensor will make all this possible.
Unfortunately, the name of the sensor has not been revealed, yet. The DIGIC 7 engine has been mentioned in regards to the EOS 1D X Mark II, which would come out in late 2015 or early 2016.
Gossip talks are hinting that, if Canon does not put a DIGIC 7 into the EOS 5D Mark IV, then the EOS 1D X Mark II will be delayed and it might miss the 2016 Olympics as well as the 2016 UEFA Euro Championship. Nevertheless, it could be pushed all the way to Photokina 2016.
As usual, everything that comes from the rumor mill requires a grain of salt.
