The consumers are patiently waiting for the release of Canon 5D Mark IV but there is a buzz that the features are not pleasing the public.

Those who must feel a bunch of excitement must not expect much of the device. According to one outlet, its capabilities could not cater the professional photographer or those who are working in the film industry.

Digicame Infor (via No Film School) reported that Mark IV update might be weak despite the 4k recording capacity.

The website wrote that the sensor is only 30MP. As a result, Canon has “to either use a crop (the middle 4000 pixels) or pixel-bin to downscale the images into 4K resolution in real-time.”

Furthermore, the Canon 5D Mark IV is also using the same 4K codec as the 1D X Mark II and 1D C,  MJPEG 4:2:2 500Mbit/s, 8bit. However, there is a lot of competitors which offers the same feature with a relatively low price.

Check out the other specs and features of the camera device below:

  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • AF 61 points
  • 150,000-pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
  • Anti-flicker
  • Continuous shooting 7 frames / sec.
  • ISO100-102400 (extended sensitivity)
  • Touch panel
  • 4K at 30fps, MJPEG 4:2:2 500Mbit/s
  • JPEG still image of 8MP from 4K video
  • 120fps HD video for slow motion (1080)
  • Time-lapse movie
  • GPS built-in
  • Wi-Fi, NFC
  • Media SD / SDHC / SDXC and CompactFlash TypeII
  • USB3.0 terminal, HDMI terminal (unknown if 1080 or 4K via HDMI, likely 1080)
  • Size: 150.7mm x 116.4mm x 75.9mm
  • Weight: 890g

On the other hand, Canon Rumors claimed that the Canon 5D Mark IV will sport a Dual Pixel RAW. Furthermore, this allows the users to record both a regular RAW file and Dual Pixel RAW file at the same time.

According to Mobipicker, the people behind Canon 5D Mark IV might unveil the product update at the Beijing conference on Aug. 25. Nevertheless, people must wait for the official release to check if the features are indeed disappointing.
