10 great things about the upcoming 5D Mark V
« on: February 20, 2017, 10:58:51 AM »
You read the headline correctly... the Mark V.

Many of us have said that we will keep our 5D Mark III bodies and wait for the 5D Mark V if there is to be one.

Here are what I see as ten great things about the Mark V and it isn't even out or being talked about yet:

1. There is plenty of time to save the cash needed to make the upgrade.
2. It will probably clock 10 FPS.
3. Instead of plastic, carbon fiber will be used to cover the outside of the body except for   where the grippy parts go (exotic looking).
4. When the battery door is opened there will be a whoosh sound and vapor caused by liquid nitrogen in the cooling pipes will come out. The liquid nitrogen will be used to cool the 16k video functionality and to keep a positive internal pressure compared to the outside world for dust protection.
5. Built in RF transmitter for flash.
6. Interchangeable focus screens able to be chosen at purchase. No sending the camera out to change the screen.
7. Articulating touch screen.
8. In camera IS for those non-IS lenses we own. In camera IS is disabled for the IS lenses we own or can be used if IS is disabled on the lens.
9. 100% sealed for underwater functionality with specifically designed lenses.
10. At the time of this release the 1DX Mark II will be an affordable alternative.

LOL, you just had to be the first talking about the 5D V, right?

Only? I hoped for an interchangeable viewfinder - still fully weather sealed when mounted - giving the option of an EVF or OVF (and maybe an hybrid one), in different configurations (waist level included).

Ahh, now I see, Canon wants to emulate the Lincoln Continental naming scheme!

Yes, but Canon doesn't want to contribute to the ship jumping SonyFanBoy huffers.

i know for a fact that it will have quantum entanglement focus tracking....
and auto-flex sensor that microadjusts the corners of any attached lens... after microadjusting the center...

later...
the mark VI will transform from a small flip cell phone to full  size 5 series body...
when it senses you observing it...
...not the mk V....this feature is not ready

but the mk V wont have spot meter tracking....either

Nope. Miniature hydrogen fuel cell. I said battery door in my post. I meant fuel cell dock door. Sorry.

I think it will have multiple L lenses already attached......something like this:
5d Mkiii; Eos-M5 and too many lenses; 430 EXii, 430 EXiii-RT and a whole lot of stuff.

1.  The LCD screen will be replaced with and multi-angle holographic generator.
2.  The output ports will be expanded to include a base plate interface and will include fiber optics that support uncompressed 16K video.
3.  An optional battery grip will include eight card slots and an embedded 12 core processor that interface with the new optical port.  There will be a secret optical "service port" that Magic Lantern will find.
4.  A to D conversion will be utilize optical pathways that eliminate noise.
5.  The classic battery compartment design will change to a compartment aligned vertically in the front of the handgrip and will accommodate two LP-E6 batteries in a tray.
6  The back plate of the body will be interchangeable for upgrading imaging devices, custom astro-chips, and 35 mm film.
7.  A 1.5 to 5X digital zoom will be added.  This was requested by prime lens users that didn't want to be exposed as having owned a zoom lens.
8.  For theft protection, the on/off switch will be replaced with a touch pad that reads your finger print.
9.  A small rear facing lens will be added for selfies.
10.  One new programmable button is added.  In the "tools" menu, assign this new button to answer your phone while you continue to shoot.(Bluetooth interface)

I can promise you one thing.  The 5DV will be hugely disappointing to the fanboys at launch, but about 3-6 months later, those same people will buy one, use one, and then talk about how it's the greatest camera ever  :o ;D
CPS Score: 111 points, those 0 and 1 point items really add up
