As you’re probably aware, we’re not big fans of rumours and news leaks whatsoever, but when it comes to the most anticipated DSLR camera of the year, an exception can be certainly made. This time, CanonRumors unveiled the first photo of the Canon 5D Mark IV along with a few more specs already crawling the web that shed more light on the upcoming announcement of the latest Canon DSLR, (supposedly) scheduled for August 25th/26th depending on where you live in the world. According to the leaked specs, the camera will sport a 30MP sensor boasting 4K video recording capabilities at 24 and 30fps along with 1080p video at 60fps, and 720p at 120fps.
Other speculations include ergonomic changes, such as a new “locking switch” on the rear of the camera, more touchscreen functionality than the EOS-1D X Mark II, CF and SD card slots, a cable release port on the front of the camera replacing the old “Mark X” badge, a USB 3.0 port and more improvements across the board. It’s also claimed the EOS 5D Mark IV will come in two kits, one with the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS and the other with the brand new EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II as the former kit will be the lower priced option.
No matter if all these rumours will be confirmed or not, it’s clear that Canon has another exciting camera up in their sleeves that’s expected to be announced in just two weeks or so. Only time will tell, though, whether all that buzz and excitement will be fulfilled or quite the opposite, it will arise even more discontent and frustration among aspiring filmmakers and videographers alike who have been waiting eagerly for the Canon 5D Mark III replacement since the latter was initially announced more than four years ago back in March 2012.
