New Battery Grip for EOS 5D Mark IV & More [CR2]
« on: April 22, 2016, 08:25:25 AM »
Information for the EOS 5D Mark IV is coming in slowly.

We’re told that the new EOS 5D Mark IV, which will be announced in August will have a new battery grip, the BG-E20. We don’t know at this time if the new camera will use an LP-E6 series battery or not, though we hope it does.

There is no dedicated external wifi transmitter coming for the camera, so that seems to confirm that wifi will be built-in to the EOS 5D Mark IV.

We’re also told that the EOS 5D Mark IV will see the return of the red autofocus point in AI servo mode.

That all sounds pretty specific and accurate.

New BG to accommodate a slightly changed body profile because of 4K (heat sink 'n stuff) ?

Well that will be a welcome return. But why only in AI servo mode?

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

Perhaps a typo.  Strange the AF would be red only in 1 mode.

Like to see the option of using 1Dx series batteries in the grip.

That actually is pretty genius!
Other than obviously more juice on a charge, enabling more power for better AF and maybe even FPS speed sounds like a winner.

A new battery grip is no surprise. Also the 7D Mark II got an all new battery grip with AF area selector, for sure this function will be available on the 5D IV body, too. The other news are excellent news, so far so good!

It is going to be a long wait until August.

So, do I get a used or refurb 6D to get me by til the 5D-iv comes out?

How about the ISO? Will it be the same with the 1DX II's ISO?

It is time for a new battery that has better capacity.

Provided the form factor is the same for compatibility, any increase in capacity is welcome. Don't expect much, advances in lithium chemistry batteries were minimal in the last few years, see laptop and smartphone batteries for comparison. A bigger battery is unlikely, I suppose the body won't grow any bigger, possibly the opposite.

Haha I can't fathom not having red autofocus points. I think Canon learned there lesson and won't leave that feature out in the future.

Although I appreciate the opportunity to use the same batteries, I've noticed that the 5Ds and 7DII drains the LP-E6 batteries noticably faster than my 6D did.  I'm conflicted whether I want new batteries or not.

I feel like every point in this posted rumor is kind of a "duh". They're all pretty obvious. I feel like the source of this rumor could just as easily be someone in the know, vs someone who is simply paying attention to Canon's lineup and making some educated guesses.
Gear: 5D Mark IV, 5Ds, 135L, 85LII, 35LII, 100L, 70-200/2.8L IS II, 16-35/4L IS, Sigma 50mm Art, 24-105 IS STM, Canon 600 EX II-RT (x2), Yongnuo 600 EX RT-II (x3), ORLIT RoveLight 610 RT, and lots of modifiers

I can't say for the 5Ds, but the 7DII drains the battery even when the camera is turned off, though the discharge rate is very low. My 5DII does not.

Possibly, comparing the 6D and the 7DII, dual digic and dual card play their part.

The physical design (maybe need a tray for the regular batteries) and electronics (circuitry to accommodate different voltage input) make that very, very unlikely.
