Will Canon Find A Way To Cripple The EOS R5? These Guys Think So

Canon EOS R5 Rumor 8k

While the Internet is still discussing if the recently leaked EOS R5 and EOS R6 rumors are anything near to reliable, here are some guys who think Canon will cripple the EOS R5 with a hammer (like).

Don’t take the folks at Camera Conspiracies too seriously. The intent is sardonic if not sarcastic. Never the less, they might have some good points. Enjoy.

All Canon R5 rumors are listed here. All Canon EOS R6 rumors are listed here.

The Canon EOS R5 is rumored to come with some amazing features, and that’s the reason some people think they are not real (the feats in bold are said to be more likely to be real).

  • It will not be named Canon EOS Rs but R5
  • 45mp full frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K@30fps RAW
  • 4K@120fps
  • 4K@60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month
  • Shipping in July 2020 

Canon 2019 Financials – EOS R With New Sensor, Image Processor, Advanced Features Under Development


Canon published their financial results for 2019. And there are some interesting statements about the EOS R roadmap to find in the documents.

Canon takes the EOS R full frame mirrorless system very seriously.

In Imaging System, sales and profit also declined. While we enhanced our lineup in order to recover the ground we lost by entering the mirrorless camera market late, our camera business was negatively impacted by market contraction and the intensely competitive environment.

Yep, you were a bit late Canon. But we are willing to forget and forgive. Especially if you make us lusting for gear with statements like this (emphasis mine):

Although we have launched two full-frame mirrorless cameras as well as ten dedicated lenses, our lineup is still insufficient. In order to recover from our late entry into the mirrorless camera market, we have plans to launch a model that incorporates a newly developed image sensor and image-processing engine that offer even more advanced features. We will work to raise our presence in the mirrorless camera category, leveraging
large trade exhibitions around the world. Even amid increasing competition, we will expand sales of higher-end models driven by new products and aim for top market share even in the mirrorless camera market.

Ok, so if got it right an EOS R model with a newly developed sensor, a newly developed image processor and with advanced features is under development. We say “under development” because if Canon mentions it in their financial strategy papers, it can’t be that far away. And guess what? There is more. What about new lenses?

At the same time, we will expand our lineup of dedicated lenses launching several innovative ones that take advantage of the new mount that allows greater flexibility when designing lenses. We will accelerate sales by responding to user need to capture various images, expanding options by combining camera bodies and lenses.

Needless to say how good this sounds in the ears of a Canon aficionado. Maybe this advanced EOS R camera is one of the upcoming models?
