Camera body corresponding to the anti-vibration

According to a article published over famous rumor mills the Canon 5D Mark IV announcement is at-least 6 months away from now. It is expected that Canon will announce Canon 1DX Mark II before the announcement of Canon 5D Mark IV camera and if it’s true than Canon will sure wait to get a sufficient sales volume of Canon 1DX Mk II.
We do hope this time Canon will bring out advance phase AF module compared to its old 61 point phase AF module/sensor used inside Canon 1DX and 5D Mark III. The other most important feature we are waiting is introduction of Dual-pixel CMOS AF technology in fullframe still camera, however Canon already implemented Dual-pixel CMOS fullframe AF sensor inside its C300 Mark II Cinema announced on 8, April 2015.
Take a look at the AF speed of Canon Fullframe Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor below.
Latest High ISO test published at Imagine resource website. The new Sony A7R II model features Hybrid Phase detect sensor with 399 Active phase AF points and more resolution compared to its predecessor and biggest achievement of Sony A7R II is the camera able to improve its dynamic range and low-light performance despite of having more resolution and Active AF points inside the sensor.

According to the latest rumors floating over the web, Sony may announce new products soon, the to be announced list includes.
1. Sony A7S
2. Sony A7000
3. Sony a99II
4. Sony FE 24-70mm GM Lens for FE mount fullframe camera
6. Zeiss Loxia Wide-angle lens for FE mount fullframe camera
7. Sony A-mount lenses
The most confirmed camera in the list is Sony A7000, since the camera was expected to arrive back on May 2015 but due to some sensor heating issues while recording the 4K movies delayed the announcement of the camera. We strongly hope the Sony will sure announce Sony A7000 camera on Sep 2015.
According to a leaked document via wikileaks Sony was rumored to announce new A7 series in 2015, we have already seen Sony A7II and A7R II and the only left camera is Sony A7S.
Almost 3 years passed away after the announcement of Sony A99 II camera but no update arrive till now, we expect sony will soon announce A99 II with a completely new sensor and a option to record 4K videos.

It’s look like Canon is fully per-pared to announce the firmware update of its flagship Canon 1DX camera. It’s a fact and not a rumor since according to a Canon 1DX user and dforum.net forum member PSNet he found firmware 2.0.8 installed on his camera after coming back from Canon professional service. However the user didn’t discuss about improvements included in the latest version of the firmware update.
We have to keep in mind that after a major firmware update of Canon 7D [see our post published, on June 28th, 2012] camera Canon took almost two years to announce Canon 7D Mark II camera.
Will the upcoming firmware update can delay the announcement date of Canon 1DX Mark II camera ?
However at this moment I don’t expect the upcoming firmware will bring any major changes in the core specification of the camera and it will only fix minor bugs related to new / wide angle lenses. Hence you don’t have to worry about the delay of Canon 1DX Mark II camera, it will arrive before Q1 of 2016.
