The Canon DSLR enthusiast, especially professional photographers are very curious about the replacement of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. It seems like they cannot wait to look forward to the launch of the successor, the EOS 5D Mark IV. Does the presence of the 5D Mark IV is only going to be just a rumor? The time to launch a high-end camera is usually different from the entry-level camera, which is usually faster than a professional camera.
Are you also curious about the presence of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV? The photographers, Canon especially true fan would want to enhance the features and technology in the 5D Mark IV, so that there are significant differences with his predecessor. From the rumors that thrive on the Internet, I found the approximate specifications of the EOS 5D Mark IV, as foreseen by kenrockwell.com, as follows:

According to newcamera.com it reported that Canon 5D coming in two different version 5D Mark IV and 5D Mark IVc, the C version id dedicated for Video purpose. They have also mentioned the camera expected to arrive at Q1 of 2016. However, the author canonwatch.com somewhat skeptical and hesitant with the naming of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, because the number four (4) is considered unlucky in Japanese culture because it is sometimes pronounced “shi“, which is also a word for death. Wow.
Does the Mark IV will be the Mark IVc? The canonwatch.com also mentioned that the “c” pointing to a more video-oriented model. If the mirrorless camera or DSLR camera there is enriched with 4K video recording capability, whether the 5D Mark IVc will also be equipped with 4K feature? Of course only Canon can answer, as well as other features such as NFC and Wi-Fi has become a new trend in digital cameras, even on prosumer cameras and mirrorless cameras.
The photographer seems increasingly want to be spoiled, so a photography device must also be able to communicate wirelessly with Wi-Fi or NFC, and of course there should be a built-in GPS. In addition to a strong body and shockproof, anti-dust or anti weather, then a variety of additional features, undoubtedly a camera will be more expensive.
A rumor, especially about the DSLR camera is the most scrumptious meals to be discussed online in various forums, and the subject of conversation when the photographers berkumbul warm in a coffee shop or when they were hunting photos in Bali or South Africa. However, especially in the case of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, it looks like the photographer must be patient, and let us look forward to the official news from Canon headquarters.
