After having ridiculed each and any rumor we posted about Canon’s plans with 4K technology, some of the rumor sites now started to post one Canon 4K rumor after the other. Funny.
The latest bits suggest Canon will release a prosumer mirrorless camera with 4K on board. The rumor is a bit confusing since it refers to three different models, at least one featuring 4K. Canon might announce two mirrorless cameras with an APS-C sensor (already rumoured), and one with a full-frame sensor (leaked first here one CW; see here too). A Canon mirrorless camera with fixed lens is also rumoured (something like the Leica Q and Sony RX1 R).
Canon Watch’s take: with Canon already investing in 8K technology, and given the ubiquity of 4K from smartphones to cameras, it is a safe bet to assume that a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera to be announced in 2016 will indeed have 4K on board. Canon itself talked about their mirrorless plans in a recent interview, and then in another interview.[via Canon Rumors]
