Canon 5D Mark IV and 1D X Mark II to be Announced Before NAB 2016?
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.
On the other hand when we look at the previous rumors, Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is rumored to be announced before Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The DSLR will indeed be a quantum leap in Canon’s flagship camera and compete against the soon to be announced Nikon D5. We can expect the 1D X Mark II for CES 2016 in the beginning of January.
