The next EOS & PowerShot processor
It has been a long time since we spoke about or saw an updated DIGIC processor in a Canon Camera. It seems DIGIC IV has been around for a long time, 2008 to be exact.

I was told today that DIGIC V has been in development for at least 4 years. A lot has changed during its development because of the explosive success of the 5D Mark II and HD video.

Features of the next DIGIC Processor

  • Still and video noise reduction that will be industry revolutionary (I like that word)
  • The most throughput on the market
  • Dynamic range improvements, unknown to what extent
  • New video codec. RAW video is unknown, but the throughput will attainable
  • New liveview AF abilities, unknown whether that will affect video AF
  • New “creative” tools for new DSLR and compact features
