EOS 1D Mark IV launched

Canon has announced the launch of the EOS 1D Mark IV – a high-speed, professional digital SLR (DSLR) camera designed to empower photographers to capture split-second moments in high resolution, under the most challenging of conditions.

Ideal for shooting action, sports, news events and wildlife photography, the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV delivers speed, power and high-resolution images, creating the perfect camera for photographers who require reliability in fast-paced, high-pressure situations.

Developed incorporating feedback from professional photographers, the EOS 1D Mark IV features a new Canon 16.1MP APS-H CMOS sensor and a brand new 45-point autofocus (AF) system with 39 f/2.8 sensitive cross-type points, providing a wide selection of precise focus areas across the frame.

EOS 5D Mark II firmware development

Canon is developing a firmware update for the EOS 5D Mark II to enable the recording of high definition 1080p video at 24 and 25fps. The decision to develop new firmware to support these features has been taken following feedback received from cinematographers and photographers.
Introduced in September 2008, the multi award-winning EOS 5D Mark II was the first DSLR product to offer full frame 1080p HD video recording, opening up a multitude of new creative possibilities for photo journalists, news photographers and amateur filmmakers. Since then, Canon has continued to develop its groundbreaking EOS Movie functionality, firstly with the firmware update to the EOS 5D Mark II that enabled manual exposure control, and more recently by introducing a choice of video recording frame rates with the EOS 7D and EOS 1D Mark IV.

Canon currently expects the firmware update to be made available during the first half of 2010. An announcement regarding details of the update and its availability will be made closer to the release date.
