From a Canon employee (although not one from DSLR division or even from Japan):"....or those expecting 4K video in a DLSR will be very disappointed. Canon sees no reason for this in a consumer camera yet. They told my boss only about 10% of people buy a 5D III for it's video capabilities. They are focusing on cinema market and want you to pay big dollars for the C300/500 or 1DC if you must have a DSLR with 4K. 5D IV will not get it IMO and at best we will see 1080p @ 60fps."
Great so they want to go from a lot buying the 5D2 for video to 10% for the 5D3 to 0.1% for the 5D4. Brilliant.
If this is true and no Exmor-low ISO.... maybe Canon really and truly has lost the plot.
We'll see next year.
I still findit hard to believe they'd be that THAT foolish to leave 4k out of even the 5D4 though. I still think it will ahve it.
'A Canon employee', well that's specific. There are close to 200,000 of them, and the vast majority know nothing about the details of future corporate strategy. Anyone placed highly enough in the organization to actually know would also know better than to divulge. I'd give your quote about the same level of reliability if I heard it from a gas station attendant or supermarket cashier.
