Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might have a dedicated sensor [CW3]

Still nothing sure about Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera. Just a bit suggesting Canon will use a sensor developed specifically for their full frame mirrorless camera. No EOS 6D Mark II or 5D Mark IV sensor.

The suggestion  seems to come from an internal presentation at Canon. The announcement Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might happen at Fall 2018.

EOS M1 is rumored to be the moniker of Canon’s full frame MILC.

We know Nikon is now seriously committed to mirrorless, let’s hope Canon eventually does the same.

These are the tidbits about Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera, these:

  • Dedicated full frame CMOS sensor
  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.

Stay tuned
