We’re told the following specifications are for a camera that may turn out to be the EOS 5D Mark IV, but for the moment it is just a test camera that may never get to market in this form. We’re expecting a replacement to the EOS 5D Mark III some time in the final quarter of 2015.
A camera currently being tested specifications
- 18mp Full Frame CMOS
- ISO 100-204,800
- 61 AF Points (all crosstype)
- Dual CFast
- 4K Video Capture
It was stressed that the above is NOT the EOS-1D X Mark II. There will be a quantum leap in fps, dynamic range and a bump in resolution for that camera. We’re told that there’s a possibility that a replacement to the EOS 5D Mark III could be called the EOS 5D X, but no final decision has been made on that.
I stress again that this is a reported test camera that may never come to market, and it is unknown how old this test camera is.
