Canon 5D Mark IV Rumor

canon_5d_mark_iv

Rumors have been circulating about the successor to the Canon 5D Mark III that will have 4K video recording (likely with a unsatisfying video codec if Canon remains consistent in its approach).

The main rumor has been 28mp, 9fps, and 4K video, to be released around September.  One other source has suggested 32mp and a release date that makes it questionable if it will be out before the year end.

In a recent interview one of the Canon high up staff acknowledged that Canon as a company needs to move faster in releasing its products.  Let’s hope the Mark IV will surprise us as the Mark III was a disappointing update from the Mark II.

Quicklapse is a way of extending the burst shooting rates that digital cameras have (like 4 or 5 shots per second) by using software to generate the frames in between. There are of course limitations to this technique and the type of subject matter that it works for.

Sanchez & Olaso, who specialize in architecture motion photography, have released the following example of their 8K video with the aforementioned quicklapse technique:
