Canon EOS Rs Rumor: Possible But Unlikely Specification List Surfaces

Canon EOS Rs Rumor: Possible But Unlikely Specification List Surfaces
The Canon EOS Ra for astrophotography is the latest EOS R body that has been released

Here is a new Canon EOS Rs rumor, and it comes with a specification list that’s almost too good to be true.

This specification list pretty much differs from a previous spec list coming from the same source:

  • 45mp (conflicting intel suggests also 40mp)
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 14fps / 20fps (conflicting intel suggests also 12fps / 20fps)
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touchbar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous Canon EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K@30fps RAW
  • 4K@120fps
  • 4K@60fps
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month

These are a hell of video specs, and the reason we have some doubts about this specification list. The same source also suggested this EOS R model might be named EOS R5, and not EOS Rs (which has always been a moniker invented by the rumor mills).

45MP are perfectly fine as sensor resolution, besides the fact that so far resolutions around 70-80MP have been rumored. Another thing is a bit weird, according to experience. If the announcement is set to happen before CP+ Show then we should see serious leaks and reliable specification lists very soon, or they should even already have leaked. It’s a month until CP+.

The Canon EOS Rs would be the first of three rumored new Canon EOS R bodies to get announced this year. There is the EOS Rm, a camera rumored to be even more inexpensive and entry-level than the EOS RP (but is this possible, given that the EOS RP currently sells for less than $1,000?) And then there is this possible, third Canon EOS R camera coming in 2020. We know as good as nothing about this one. Will this one be a sports camera? Or is this just the EOS R Mark II?

Any ideas about this Canon EOS Rs specification list?

Stay tuned for the next Canon EOS Rs rumor.
