Soon after the Japan based company Canon completed its major announcements for the EOS 1DX Mark II this year the 5D Mark 4 rumours started lurking around the web once again.
According to the latest rumours surfaced the new and coming Canon EOS 5D Mark 4 DSLR will most certainly feature a 4K video option natively without the need for aftermarket tools like Magic Lantern and such.
Certainly after the intro of a Dual Pixel focusing sensor in the 1DX Mark II we are right to expect Dual Pixel Full Frame CMOS AF in the upcoming EOS 5D Mark 4 DSLR. As far as we know, and this is nowhere near to be confirmed, Canon’s next 5D camera will most likely have the new Canon Log function and Wide Dynamic Range gamut. The very recently announced EOS 1DX Mark 2 has already arrived with 4K video capabilities but it doesn’t yet support Log Gamma or Wide DR gamut.
The new Canon Log Gamma function records an image or video with artificially lowered sharpness and contrast then the camera with Log Gamma function preserves the high DR and the color grading to use in postproduction. The Canon Log Gamma function offer rich gradients from mid-range to highlights when editing video in post production softwares.
Here is the rumoured and updated spec of the new EOS 5D Mark 4 DSLR that has been floating around
The Canon EOS 5D Mark 4 Rumored Features:
28mp or 24 MP Full Frame CMOS Sensor
