Again, a Canon EOS R5 Mark II rumor. Again, the alleged release date has changed.…
We got an interesting tip and want to share it with you. It’s a about a new image sensor developed by Canon and the possibility it will be featured on the EOS R1.
Our source told us (thanks) that Canon has developed a new image sensor with these specifications:
- 21MP full frame sensor (6.4um)
- Global shutter
- 120dB dynamic range
- 120 fps
- Sensor based on the enhanced technology from the 2/3 inch GS sensor shown at ISSC 2017
Just to be clear: the rumored sensor is not a 2/3″ sensor but it is based on a 2/3 inch sensor.
So, the question here is: might this sensor come with the Canon EOS R1? Maybe. The EOS R1 is said to be equivalent to the EOS-1D X lineup, and it is rumored to get released in 2021. Will a 21MP full frame sensor still be good enough for a sport-oriented, professional mirrorless camera in 2021? Let me know what you think.
