EOS 5D Mark IV

I was thinking a level of visual fidelity to rival OVFs, so maybe 7-8 million dots at 60+ FPS. I know Sony and a few other manufacturers are developing 5+ million dot EVFs at 240FPS, so it might not be too far in the future.
Sony is more than developing one, they have a samples available now with full rate production starting in a few months. Part number is ECX399A.
Personally, I have found that extended use of EVFs tends to hurt my eyes. Hopefully something can be done on that front. I’ve used the a7r3, and to me it’s mostly fine from a clarity and speed standpoint.
I imagine so. The A9 can get up to 1/160th second before banding/rolling is seen. I guess we just need faster stacked sensor designs.
Yeah I was thinking nine, or eight anyway. I know Canon is already working on their next-gen DPAF, so I have a feeling they're coming up with a method to incorporate expanded directional orientation in their pixels. I'm already satisfied with DPAF subject tracking, but I'd like a mode for rapid subject acquisition.
Canon is indeed working on that expansion: they have two patents, I believe, one for quads per diode, and one which rotates the pairs in adjacent sites.
