Press Release: Canon Announces the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR, 16-35 III, 24-105 II and W-E1 WIFI Adaptor

Yes, I'm late to the game of posting this but this just so happen to be announced while I was on vacation. The Canon 5D Mark III was released in 2012 and four years later, Canon has officially announced the EOS 5D Mark IV, the fourth generation of its full-frame DSLR for photographers. The new camera features a 30MP Dual Pixel CMOS sensor allows for fast phase-detection autofocus in video and—for the first time in a Canon full-frame body—continuous focus for stills shooting in live view. Video can be captured in the DCI (4096 x 2160) 4K format at up to 30p (and up to 60p in 1080, and 120p in 720). 4K video is captured in the high quality but inefficient Motion JPEG format.

The camera's AF coverage, sensitivity and lens compatibility has been expanded in-line with the EOS-1D X Mark II and the maximum frame rate boosted to seven frames per second.

Canon 5D Mark IV Key Specifications
  • New 30.4MP CMOS full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel AF
  • DCI 4K 30/24p video using Motion JPEG + 4K Frame Grab
  • 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type sensors (center point sensitive to -3 EV)
  • Dual Pixel AF (sensitive to -4EV) for continuous Servo AF in stills (first for a full-frame Canon camera) and video
  • ISO 100-32000 (expandable to 102400)
  • 7 fps continuous shooting
  • Dual Pixel Raw (image microadjustment, bokeh shift, ghosting reduction)
  • 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor
  • 1.62M-dot 3.2" full-time touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi w/ NFC + GPS
  • Built-in bulb timer interval timers
  • Improved weather-sealing
The EOS 5D Mark IV will go on sale in early September with an MSRP of $3499. Kits with the 24-70mm F4L IS will ship at around the same time for $4399, while a 24-105mm F4L IS II USM kit follows in late October for $4599.

Currently, I have the Canon 5D Mark III and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the Canon 5D Mark IV. Anyone else looking forward to the Canon 5D Mark IV?

Indiegogo: Omnicharge Smart & Compact Portable Power Bank

[update headline="QI Wireless, USB-C and EU Plug - 8.12.2016:"]Omnicharge has no added QI wireless charging ($16 extra). You also have the option of USB-C charging instead of using the barrel plug style. And if you haven't been following, they have now added the option of EU socket plug for international backers.[/update]

While browsing the web, we happened to stumble upon a portable power bank called Omnicharge on Indiegogo. Not only does it let you charge your portable devices such as smartphones, tablets and other USB devices but you can also charge AC items as well. If your camera battery is low, you can plug the wall unit charger into the Omnicharge. Have a laptop that needs to be charged? Plug in the AC adapter into the power bank. You can even power lights, fans, curling irons, power tools, portable speakers and more.

Omnicharge is the world's smallest power bank with (1) AC/DC Power Outlet and (2) USB Fast-Charging ports for charging or powering nearly any device. With intelligent charging, it knows what is connected and the optimal charge for each device, so it won't fry your electronics, no matter what type of device you are powering. It comes in two different sizes, 13600mAh (Standard) and 20400mAh (PRO).

Every electronic device requires a different power voltage to charge, and their battery life and efficiency reaches optimal levels when they are charged using the designated voltage.

Omnicharge actively manages outflow and inflow to ensure that both your device and omnicharge are operating safely while displaying power-flow and estimated charge time remaining for each device.

This process is controlled and protected by our patented power management system, making Omnicharge the first Smart Power Bank on the market – a battery with a brain.

The Smart Power Management System also makes it possible for Omnicharge to recharge using "Universal Inputs" (details below), meaning nearly any cable.

Early bird starts at $99 for the Standard and $129 for the PRO. $189 for (2) Standard and $219 for (1) Standard and (1) PRO. And for you power hungry users, you can get (2) PRO for $249. It will begin shipping out in October. You can place your order at Indiegogo.
