Article: Release Date and Review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV(4)

Looks like the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV(4) will be announced in October [1] along with a new pro printer.

It is going to shoot about 12 FPS and be about 28 MP with the new digic VI(6) system. It is also rumored as having Dual Pixel AF III, advanced AF technology, anti-flicker technology, crop mode, and an ISO range of 100-204800.


Dual Pixel AF III: 61 cross points and auto focus assist light

Lens Compatibility

All Canon EOS EF lenses should work. Including older lenses from as far back as the 1980s.

Old manual focus FD lenses or earlier won’t work.

What I would like to see in this new digital camera:

50 MP

8K video

Easy to use hue/color adjustment settings.

Lots of fun filters: Miniature, pop colors, toy camera, etc. Also the ability to make and load our own.

USB Type C

Wifi and GPS built in

Wireless charging from their new dock

2 typhoons almost made it up here together and there has been a lot of rain. It’s the first time in 10 years I’ve seen the Toyohira river flooding.

The Ezo Wolf is Gone for Good: A few people I’ve met in Susukino swear these wolves still hang around in the back alleys of Susukino, Sapporo, but it’s usually after a few beers or tequilas, while sitting on a bar stool or at the counter when they seem to appear out of nowhere… Better watch out ;)

* The northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, as well as Sakhalin, the Kuril islands, the Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Iturup and Kunashir islands, used to be where you could find the Hokkaido wolf (Canis lupus hattai, formerly known as Canis lupus rex), also known as the Ezo wolf.

The Ezo wolf was typically grey in color with slightly reddish brown and/or black markings on its body. It was also significantly larger than the wolves found on Honshu probably because of the harsh weather, climate of the area and larger pray like the red deer it used to eat. The Ezo wolf descended from Siberian wolves from the Asian mainland, and the Hokkaido subspecies retained a size closer to their large ancestors compared to the wolves found on Honshu.

2012: Closing Sale: Unfortunately the Ezo Wolf bar was with us only for a short time.

2011-09-20th: Looks like the Ezo wolf is back. There is a Tex Mex themed international bar called El Lobo (エル・ロボ) in Susukino. The address is South 5 West 4, Susukino, Chuou-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan (札幌市中央区ススキノ南5条西4丁目9-9 入口南向き). This izakaya/restaurant in Susukino doesn’t have a table charge and lots of people are saying the food is nice. :)  011-211-6919. I haven’t been there yet but will try and check it out sometime next week.
