We reported a few weeks ago that the “5D” line would be split into the 3 cameras, the two 5DS cameras as well as the 5D Mark IV.
Today we were told that the 5D Mark IV is indeed coming in 2015 and will focus on being a lowlight event and sports type of camera with good enough image quality for pretty much anything else you throw at it. The camera could also be the next Canon DSLR to get 4K video recording, along with new video features. We haven’t heard anything in regards to an EOS-1D C replacement, which lends some credence to the rumors that the next 5D Mark XX will take over where the 1D C will leave off, though we don’t want to say that’s a for sure thing right now.
Northlight reports that the camera is currently scheduled for an announcement in August and will see a modest increase in megapixels.
As predicted, the Canon EOS-1D C has seen an official price drop in North America and it’s significant. The camera has been reduced in price by $4000 and now retails for $7999. This new pricing will go into effect on Sunday, February 1, 2015.

The first thing people have noticed is the maximum ISO of 6400 for both the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.
We’re told this is because of a much stronger CFA which will produce much greater color accuracy than anything currently in the Canon lineup.
The EOS 5D Mark IV will be the camera geared to sensitivity and lowlight performance and we will see one sometime in 2015.
