Canon will announce the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR soon, as its detailed list of specifications and photos have been leaked on the web.
For some, it is becoming tiring at this point, but they will have to bear with us for not too long. Canon will officialize the sought-after and much-rumored 5D Mark IV in the near future, likely in very late August or very early September.
In the meantime, trusted sources have leaked the photos of the camera along with its specifications. There are some interesting things in there, including the confirmation that the sensor will have more than 28 megapixels, as initially speculated. Here is what is new!
Detailed Canon 5D Mark IV specifications leaked alongside the DSLR’s photos
Canon’s upcoming 5D Mark IV will employ a 30.4-megapixel full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel AF technology. The autofocus system will consist of 61 points and 41 of them will be cross-type, while the continuous shooting mode will deliver 7fps.
There will be a 150,000-pixel RGB and IR sensor that is joined by an anti-flicker technology, the latter ensuring a consistent exposure when shooting in burst mode. The sensor will offer an extended ISO sensitivity of up to 102,400, which will be handy when shooting in low-light conditions.
As expected, the DSLR will record videos at 4K resolution at up to 30fps. Additionally, it will support full HD capturing at 60fps and 720p HD shooting at 120fps. Users will be able to extract 8MP stills from 4K movies, too.
There will be a time-lapse photography mode added to the camera along with built-in WiFi connectivity in order to allow users to transfer files to a mobile device easily. The link up can be done via NFC, while another bonus is integrated GPS functionality, so that users can record the exact location where their photos and videos were captured.
It seems like there will be two card slots in the Canon 5D Mark IV. One of them is designed for SD/SDHC/SDXC cards, while the other one will support CF cards. Getting back to connectivity, the camera will have both USB 3.0 and HDMI ports.
The display on the back will be a touch-enabled LCD, while whole camera will be weathersealed. It will measure about 116.4 x 150.7 x 75.9mm, while weighing 890 grams.
Finally, there is a mention of the possibility of users not being required to post-process their shots thanks to the Dual Pixel technology. This information still needs clarification, but we will get it soon enough, as the Canon 5D Mark IV will be revealed within a few weeks.
