Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?
« on: July 03, 2014, 06:47:28 AM »
Quote from: Canon Watch
Just recently a rumor surfaced stating that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the beginning of 2015. Now I have been told (thanks) that the successor of the EOS 5D Mark III could feature 4k video. The feature is going to be implemented, so the source, to further push the 5D into the videographers domain.

Currently Canon is featuring 4k on the EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo). It would be a more than welcome move if the 5D Mark IV would deliver 4k! Canon added HD recording to the EOS 5D Mark II, let’s hope the EOS 5D Mark IV will make the next step. Just to remind: full HD has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4K has a resolution of 4096 x 2160.

Why do they bother making video cameras if video is such a big deal on SLRs? I hate the fact I had to spend so much extra for a feature I've used once on my 5D3.


Why can't they just split the lines properly and sell each one at a reasonable price?
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

How much extra do you think you're paying for video?  Or do you hate live view as well?

Tongue in cheek:  My 5D definitely doesn't have a video feature.

I suspect what Dylan777 is playfully saying is that many participants on this forum never or seldom use the video features of their cameras (if present) and would not buy a 5DIV if 4K (whatever that is) were the only upgrade.

I realize that this may be a big deal for the video folk who participate on this forum.

And, I have no idea whether adding and upping the video features on a DSLR increases the cost or helps pay for the R&D for features that still photographers are coming to love (e.g., live view).

Live View comfortably predated video.

I would think it is almost a given or necessary that Canon takes the 4K step with the 5D.  There are some cameras in the market right now that shoot 4K and in the $2500-3000 price range.  My guess is that they would support external recording with the Atomos.  4K gobbles up storage like nobody's business.

For those of you not into video, shooting video with a 5DIII gives you many alternatives using all the Canon lens, and it is much better in low light situations.  We also use camcorders, which are easier and quicker to use.  It depends on what your needs and goals are that determine which to use for a given situation.

I shoot both at the same time, 80% of my time and it is really convenient just to dial the shutter speed and ISO up and 1DX becomes one of the best video tool in the room. I have only one body and two lenses with me.
If 4K and the 70D autofocus is introduced to 5D, I would sell my 5D MK III, even at half price, to fund it.
Raw photographers outhere would appreciate the advantage of not shooting in JPG anylonger.
With the arrival of Davinci 11, color grading will finally be a fun.
I will be more exited in getting that than buying my dream lens 200mm f2.0 (I don't have the money anyway).

I never shoot video and am quite content with my 5D3 autofocus so I call DIBS! on your  5D3 at half price . . .  ;D

I guarantee you that the extra you are paying is negative.

This might be disappointing news, as Canon might use 4K to differentiate the 7D replacement from the 5D replacement, meaning the 7D replacement wouldn't get 4K.  That would be the disappointing part.

As to whether or not the 7D replacement being disappointing without 4K, that'll depend on its price point. If it is over $2000, then yes. Under $2000, not as much.

What might be the case is, that Canon will ask about 4K for it ;-)
