It seems the rumors about the Canon EOS R1 got the usual shift in expectations.…
Nokishita spotted new, unreleased Canon gear. And it gets pretty interesting.
It appears Canon has registered the Bluetooth module of a new camera at a certification authority. The new camera is named EOS M50 (Kiss M in Japan), and it definitely appears be a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.
It’s suggested the EOS M50 might be similar to the EOS M5 but with less features. I’m a bit puzzled by the moniker “Kiss M” (for the Japanese market), which seems to suggest a more DSLR-like design. Well, this is assuming “Kiss M” and “EOS M50” refer to the same piece of gear (I think they do).
When gear is spotted at certification authorities it is usually a matter of weeks before this gear gets announced. However, I do not expect the EOS M50 to be announced in 2017. This will most likely be a 2018 announcement.
What do you think is the EOS M50? Sound off in the comment section.
