We’re told that the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV sensor will employ the same dual-channel readout as the EOS C300 Mark II.
The source says:
… this essentially works as a hardware implementation of what the Magic Lantern guys did with software, and actually takes it a bit further.
There has been no real confirmation that the EOS 5D Mark IV will shoot 4K video like the EOS C300 Mark II. Although, a lot of people almost expect it to be able to.
An announcement for the EOS 5D Mark IV is not expected until late summer at the earliest.

Best DSLR Expert: EOS 7D Mark II
Selected for this year’s “Best DSLR Expert” award, Canon’s APS-C-size flagship-model EOS 7D Mark II offers impressive specifications that, according to the TIPA jury, “appeal to photographers who know what a DSLR is capable of delivering.” The camera is equipped with an approximately 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s Dual DIGIC 6 image processors, all housed within a weather- and dust-resistant magnesium alloy body. In addition to realizing a fast continuous shooting speed of 10 frames per second, the EOS 7D Mark II employs a 65-point (all cross type) AF system and viewfinder providing an approximately 100 percent field of view. The jury highlighted such “exciting” features as HDR (High Dynamic Range)3 and Multiple Exposure4 modes, as well as an intervalometer and a bulb timer for long exposure capture. Furthermore, the camera incorporates dual card slots for both SD and CF cards, is capable of capturing smooth, highly responsive Full HD video thanks to its Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, and is equipped with a dedicated stereo microphone and built-in headphone jack ports.
