Nikon working on full-frame mirrorless camera, patents suggest (and where is Canon’s?)

mirrorless

Patent for 50mm f/0.9 lens

While the Canon community is eagerly waiting to know more (or at least something really reliable) about the long rumored (and much wished) Canon full-frame mirrorless camera (all rumors), we learn that Nikon is also working on such a camera.

Two Nikon patents for 50mm f/0.9 and 35mm f/1.2 lenses specifically designed to be featured on a full-frame mirrorless camera have been spotted. It is a hint that Nikon has such a camera on a blueprint at least.

We found similar patents filed by Canon in the past (1 | 2), and even a patent for an EF/EF-S adapter for a full-frame mirrorless camera. I just wish we would know something more. The latest rumor regarding Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera is here, I sum it up:

  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.
  • And for all those 4K fans out there: we have been told that, yes!, most likely it will feature 4K video.

Do you think we will see a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera in 2018?

Canon full-frame mirrorless camera eventually coming in 2018 with a sensor over 30MP?

Canon Full-frame Mirrorless Camera Eventually Coming In 2018 With A Sensor Over 30MP?

The long running speculations and rumors about a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera got a new push.

I’ve been told (thanks) that 2018 may indeed be the year Canon will announce the company’s first mirrorless camera with a full-frame sensor. For sure such a camera is highly anticipated by the community.

In the past there were all sort of rumors, sometimes one contradicting the other. One of the more interesting suggestions was given to us in January, and it said Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera may have the same sensor and electronics as the EOS 6D Mark II. While this could be considered at least plausible back in January it no longer does in August. There was no announcement of a Canon full-frame mirrorless and I strongly doubt there will be one before end of 2017.

A full-frame mirrorless camera set to go to market in 2018 will not have the same internals as the EOS 6D Mark II, let alone the same sensor. Canon needs to catch up with the competition (Sony, mostly) and the high resolution sensors delivered. 2018 will be the year when Canon will start delivering image sensors with resolutions well over 30MP for all their full-frame cameras.

So, what do we know about Canon’s mirrorless camera? A few things we do:

  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.
  • And for all those 4K fans out there: we have been told that, yes!, most likely it will feature 4K video.

I think the most interesting bit among the very scarce information we have so far is related to the EF mount. Given Canon’s incredible laziness in producing dedicated lenses for their EOS M system, I can only hope Canon’s engineers manage to build a mirrorless camera with EF mount.

What do you think, will we see a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera in 2018? And do you think it will have an EF mount? Sound off in the comment section, I am curious to know your thoughts.

Canon EOS M20 to be announced at the end of August, 24MP sensor? [CW3]

Canon EOS M20 To Be Announced At The End Of August, 24MP Sensor? [CW3]

This is not a new rumor, it surfaced previously. We got a hint that Canon will announce the replacement for the Canon EOS M10 at the end of August 2017.

I can’t rate this more than CW3 for the time being, though the likelihood of an August announcement is high.

The EOS M10 is Canon’s entry-level MILC, it’s safe to assume the EOS M20 will follow in its footsteps. The moniker “EOS M20” was suggested to Canon Watch in June 2017. We also know that a Canon entry-level camera was registered at a certification authority back in May 2017. While there are still some doubts about the name, it’s sure that there will be an EOS M10 replacement.

So what about the specs? None leaked so far. The EOS M20 will not be a powerhouse, but you can assume that some of the features introduced with the EOS M5 and EOS M6 will find there way to Canon’s next entry-level MILC. The only thing I feel I can say is that it will have a 24MP sensor, like all recent Canon DSLRs and MILCs.

If an August announcement is to take seriously, then we will soon see some leaked specs and images.

Stay tuned…

Canon’s next mirrorless camera is the EOS M20, to be announced in August 2017

Canon’s Next Mirrorless Camera Is The EOS M20, To Be Announced In August 2017

We knew Canon would release a new entry-level mirrorless camera since registration at a certification authority leaked over the web. And we anticipated it might be named EOS M20.

New rumor has it that Canon will announce the EOS M20 at the end of August 2017.

No specifications so far. Being the replacement for the EOS M10 and an entry-level MILC, it will not be a powerhouse, though some of the tech and features of the EOS M5 and EOS M6 might be on board.

Stay tuned.
