Canon are planning what they claim will be a “historic” launch event in Hollywood this November, sparking the photo buffs to begin speculating as to what the DSLR specialists may have planned.
Due for November 3rd, the “historic global announcement”, many expect the event to reveal the 5D Mark III and 1DS Mark IV cameras.
However, with the location being in Hollywood, perhaps Canon are lining up a big video capture update. Could a 4K camera, similar to that seen at the Canon Expo in New York last year be inbound? That concept piece could capture video at 4096 x 2160 resolution at 60 fps, compared to the 1280×1080 resolution of full HD. The 5D Mark II is renowned for it’s superb video capturing skills, so perhaps the 5D Mark II will make the jump to 4K.
Alternatively, we could see the rumoured launch of Canon’s compact mirrorless system, which has become somewhat of a secret race between themselves and Nikon to see who’s will appear first.
We’ll keep you posted on any developments come that November 3rd launch event.
