PCTablet report suggests that the 5D Mark IV may be priced around $3000. That price is obviously for the body only. The new DIGIC 7 image processor will be seen in the 5D Mark 4. As of now, only the high-end Canon 1DC and 1D X Mark II can shoot 4K. A report from Fstoppers expects the much-awaited camera to come with more exciting features like GPS, Wi-Fi, fully-featured touchscreen, CFast, anti-flicker, and more. Canon 5D Mark IV is expected to have anti-flicker technology that first appeared in 7D Mark II. This technology adjusts the timing of the shutter to avoid poor exposure caused by the flickering of overhead lights. When it comes to autofocus, the 5D Mark IV will likely inherit most of the 1DX Mark II’s system with 61 AF points. GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities have been very well received by Canon fans worldwide. So it’s fair to expect at least GPS capabilities even in 5D Mark IV.

Nothing is final until the official announcement. So we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt. Feel free to post in the comments section if you happen to know any other specifications of the Canon 5D Mark IV.
