Canon Might Have A Video Camera With RF Mount On Their Agenda, Patent

RF Mount

Is Canon working on a video camera with RF mount? A patent suggest they might.

Canon patent application 2019‑161567 (Japan) describes a compact video camera that looks like the Canon XC10, and we think it has the RF mount, introduced by Canon with EOS R full frame mirrorless camera system.

Don’t get too excited, however. Most patent applications never go into production. Never the less, it might be a hint that Canon is investing in the RF mount. In any case, an interesting Canon patent application. Please note that the patent application doesn’t explicitly mention the RF mount. We think it might be an RF mount because according to the patent pictures, the lens mount is too close to the sensor to be an EF mount.

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
