Canon EOS 1D Mk IV?

According to NorthLight Images, there are a few Canon EOS 1D MkIV in real test now. Their features would be:

  • 1.3 crop
  • Images ~16MP
  • ISO 50-26500
  • 8MP sRAW1 format providing images that seem to best 1D3 files in detail
  • Very clean images at ISO 3200. 6400/12800 take further processing very well
  • Slightly faster FPS than 1D3 in real life shooting
  • AF greatly improved and very good in low light (actual comment was ‘Nikon fast’ 😉
  • Liveview AF – not up to fast sports use, but very usable otherwise
  • Video as with 5D2
  • Screen as per 5D2
  • Ergonomic improvements with grips – some buttons moved
  • Feels faster and more responsive in nearly all aspects of real use.

Of course, this may be right or not. Canon may change the name and feature set, or not.
