Is Canon readying the release of the replacement for the original EOS R? A new…
A new Canon EOS R6 rumor surfaced, suggesting the announcement might be postponed to July 2020.
So far, despite rumors suggesting possible shipping delays, the announcement was expected for May 2020. But maybe that’s not the case. Latest rumor suggests July 2020 as announcement date. The source does not mention if this delay has to do with the COVID-19 pandemic, but we guess it has.
With the announcement getting delayed, the EOS R6 will not begin shipping before August or September 2020. Very unlikely earlier.
These are the rumored Canon EOS R6 specifications:
- 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
- 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
- 4K @ 60p
- FullHD @ 120p
- Dual card slots
- No top-down screen
- Lower resolution EVF than the EOS R5
- Build quality not as good as the EOS R5
- New battery (Not sure if it’s the same as the EOS R5)
- July 2020 launch
