Canon Testing Two 5D Mark IV Prototypes for 18MP and 24MP Sensors

Canon is rumored to launch the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera sometime in late 2015 and more details has been leaked online.

According to the latest Canon Rumors, two versions of 5D Mark IV camera is currently in testing with different sensor resolutions. One of them is 18MP and the other one is 24MP.

The 24-megapixel sensor is likely to come to 5D Mark IV as final version. The continuous shooting speed is said to be less than 8 fps.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

From NL:

A report (thanks) of 5D4 testing, where there is still a mix between 18 and 24MP. 24MP is the likely final outcome, with the lower MP sensor testing AF speed and buffer management issues (less than 8FPS is the likely shooting speed).

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will focus on low light events, wildlife, and sports photography. The DSLR camera is said to come with improved video and still performance and features, and with just a modest increase in resolution. It would be a direct competitor to the Nikon D750.

Canon has spent a lot of money on 5D Mark IV project, with the hope of a big jump in features and performance over the more-than-capable EOS 5D Mark III.

The rumor mill also in talks that the EOS 5D Mark III sales are still good and that may delay the release of the EOS 5D Mark IV until after the EOS-1D X Mark II is announced.
