We’re told that “more than a few” Canon preferred photographers have been out testing the EOS 5D Mark IV recently ahead of the expected August announcement. This should tell us that the camera hardware specifications have been finalized and the software remains the final piece of the puzzle to tweak and improve.
While solid specifications remain difficult to come by, we were told a few things about the video features of the camera.
- Internal 4K confirmed (again)
- 120fps @ 1080p confirmed
We couldn’t get confirmation on 4K @ 60fps, but if the camera is going to use CFast 2.0 as has been rumoured, I think this will be a likely feature. Canon seems to be putting some marketing dollars behind 4K frame grab photography, as they had some presentations on the technique at NAB this past April.
We’re also very interested to know if this DSLR will be the first to get DIGIC 7, which is currently only available in the PowerShot G7 X II.
