Canon's next EOS R model with an APS-C imaging sensor might not be far away,…
Do Canon’s already excellent ergonomics need to be improved? A new rumor suggests Canon is putting efforts in developing a new user interface.
Canon’s camera menu system, and the entire design philosophy behind, are excellent and universally recognized to be among the best in the industry. Never the less, increasing complexity of the also increasing number of features on modern digital cameras might call for a newly developed menu system.
According to the source of the rumor, on future cameras you will be able to select between a “Canon Classic” and a new menu system. That’s for sure a good thing, and will help long time Canon users to transition to the new menu.
It’s unlikely the new menu system will make it’s appearance any time soon via a firmware update. It might be featured on the upcoming EOS R flagship, the EOS R1. So, do not expect it to land on your EOS R5 or EOS R6 with the next firmware update.
Do you think Canon cameras need a new menu system? I am inclined to say they don’t.
Stay tuned, stay safe.
