Announcing The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

Announcing The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

By Canon Rumors | February 1, 2016 | Canon DSLR News

Immense power. Phenomenal speed. A remarkable combination of innovation and refinement.

The new EOS-1D X Mark II camera is nothing but legendary every step of the way. Building on a heritage of sophisticated innovation, the EOS-1D X Mark II is blazingly fast. Up to 14 fps*(up to 16 fps* in Live View mode) can be captured at a burst rate of up to 170 RAWs with a CFast™ card, and an improved 61-point AF system helps deliver clean, sharp images quickly, even in dim light. This remarkable speed means faster recording too: 4K video can be recorded at up to 60 fps with smooth AF and strikingly clear detail. Combined with superb low-light performance thanks to its powerful sensor and expandable ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark II performs brilliantly, swiftly and stunningly no matter when or where the photographer is shooting. From the stadium, safari or studio to virtually everywhere in between, the EOS-1D X Mark II maintains and enhances all the hallmarks of what Canon has to offer, marking a new page in the legacy of the EOS series of cameras.

What Will The EOS 5D Mark IV Bring to the Table?

What Will The EOS 5D Mark IV Bring to the Table?

By Canon Rumors | January 31, 2016 | Canon Business General

With the specifications of the EOS-1D X Mark II being made public, the obvious next question is what can we expect to see in the EOS 5D Mark IV, which is coming in 2016.

The EOS 5D Mark III followed the EOS-1D X quite closely in on paper specifications. Below is a prediction based of what we think we could see inside the next 5D.

  • 28mp
  • 9fps
  • DIGIC 6+ (They won’t launch DIGIC 7 so closely to a flagship camera)
  • 61 point AF
  • CFast & SD
  • Touchscreen
  • Built-in GPS & Wifi
  • Lighter weight

The biggest question will be in regards to 4K video capture. It appears that on the EOS-1D X Mark II, you will be able to record 4K video to the CFast 2.0 slot. Will Canon put a CFast 2.0 slot in the 5D Mark IV along with the SD card slot and do away with CF? I don’t see them taking the SD card slot out of the camera in favor of dual slots for CF and CFast. Everyone we’ve spoken to has said 4K recording will not be part of the EOS 5D Mark III direct replacement camera, but that can obviously change.

A video oriented version of the 5D such as a 5D C? It’s possible and has been long rumored, but nothing reported can be considered reliable at this point.

I screwed up on the resolution in a translation looking back, we were told 20.2mp and I reported 22mp for the longest time. Our source was reliable, I’m the one that wasn’t and I’m quite annoyed by this and apologize.

Some Conflicting EOS-1D X Mark II Specifications [CR2]

Some Conflicting EOS-1D X Mark II Specifications [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | January 28, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The following information comes from a very well known source, who has been correct about 80% of the time. The resolution information about the upcoming EOS-1D X Mark II contradicts what we were previously told.

Specifications (Italics are a direct quote):

  • 20.2mp sensor (We messed up and screwed up a translation and reported 22mp, instead of 20.2mp.)
  • “Some sort of a built in AA filter removal function. User can choose to have AA on or off, not too sure how that works.”
  • Improved dynamic range, but still won’t match the Sony sensors.
  • “Specifications may not be perceived as exciting as the Nikon D5.”

Leaks for this camera have been extremely hard to come by.
