Its release is very likely a few months off, but Canon’s upcoming 5D Mark IV is already getting a more definitive specs list.
Sent in to Canon Rumors from a reliable tipster, the successor to Canon’s 5D Mark III camera looks to be quite the improvement with improved specs and details across the board.
According to the unknown source, the Canon 5D Mark IV will have a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor driven by a single DIGIC 7+ imaging processor. An improved autofocus system is said to consist of 61 autofocus points, 41 of them being cross type.
Another improvement is its framerate. According to the tipster, the 5D Mark IV will be able to shoot 7 frames per second with an ISO range of 100–51,200 (not including additional expandable options).
Taking inspiration from newer Canon cameras, the 5D Mark IV is also said to have a 3.2” touchscreen LCD on the back as well as built-in WiFi and GPS. Media will be stored on a dual CFast/SD card slot setup.
Interestingly, the new camera is said to use a new battery and accompany battery grip, an LP-E20 and BG-E20, respectively.
To top it all off, the updated 5D-series camera is said to get a slight weight reduction.
All in all, it seems to be an impressive update if all holds true. The faster framerate in combination with more autofocus points and faster processor should make it quite a beast, whether it’s being used at a wedding or on the sideline of a football game.
