Rumored since a while and yet not released, the next Canon EOS R5 firmware update…
We reported many times that Canon is set to announce two new EOS R models within the first half of 2020. Here is a new Canon rumor about these cams.
Once more these announcement dates get a confirmation. You can expect the high resolution EOS Rs to be announced in February 2020, and another yet unknown EOS R camera in May 2020. Please note the “Rs” is a moniker created by the rumor mills and not an official Canon denomination.
We still do not have reliable information about the specifications of the high resolution Canon EOS Rs. So far these specifications have been rumored for the EOS Rs:
- 75mp full-frame CMOS
- Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
- Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
- DIGIC 9
- Dual Card Slots
- Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
- Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
- Fully articulating LCD screen
- Fully weather-sealed
- Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)
We know even less about the second EOS R camera that will get released in 2020. It might be the Canon EOS R Mark II, but it could also be another kind of EOS R camera, though we do not think it will be the rumored pro-oriented EOS R camera.
Will IBIS come to a Canon camera anytime soon? We are pretty sure Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that a Canon exec told the world about. And it’s very likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless camera in the EOS R lineup.
Stay tuned for the next Canon rumor.
