Canon EOS Ra Brochure Leaks Online, FF MILC For Astrophotography Coming

Canon Eos Ra

It’s official. Canon will soon release the Canon EOS Ra, a full frame mirrorless camera dedicated to astrophotography.

The product leaflet already leaked at Canon UK. It’s likely they will put it offline soon. We have a screenshot.

The text in the Canon EOS Ra leaflet reads (see also image on top):

  • This camera has approximately four times the transmittance of hydrogen-alpha light (656 nm) as the EOS R. Photographs of subjects that reflect a lot of infrared light will therefore appear redder than they actually are. Also, as it may not be possible to obtain an appropriate color balance or uneven colors may result, shooting normal subjects with this camera is not recommended.
  • Camera operations are essentially the same as for the EOS R. Refer to the included EOS R Getting Started Guide (booklet). Additionally, you can download the EOS R Advanced User Guide (PDF file) from the Canon website.

It seems a new Canon EOS R camera is coming soon, very soon likely. Will this be a 2019 announcement? Also likely after this leak.

Stay tuned for more.

Canon Might Have An EOS Ra For Astrophotography Up Their Sleeve, Report

Astrophotography

So, now we have three different Canon EOS R models that are rumored.

Latest rumor has it that Canon is working on the Canon EOS Ra, a full frame mirrorless camera dedicated to astrophotography. The Canon EOS Ra could be announced in 2020. If true, 2020 would be the year Canon might release up to 3 new EOS R bodies.

Canon made DSLRs for astrophotography in the past. The Canon EOS 20Da and Canon EOS 60Da. Cameras for astrophotography have increased IR sensitivity. A mirrorless offering for astrophotography makes sense. The source of the rumor states that the EOS Ra moniker already appeared in a Canon internal roadmap document. No specifications have been suggested.

The other rumored EOS R models are a high-megapixel camera and another one at EOS-1D X level.

The next Canon mirrorless camera we expect to be announced is the Canon EOS M200.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III To Feature IBIS, 6K Video, Resolution Jump?

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Ii

IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) seems to be a big thing for a lot of people. We are not entirely sure we get the reasons for the hype.

However, latest Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor has it that the next iteration of Canon’s flagship will indeed have IBIS on board. That Canon will feature IBIS on future cameras seems to be a pretty sure thing given all the pertinent patents.

According to the source, a prototype of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is already in the hands of selected people. The prototype is said to have the following features:

  • 6K video without a crop
  • Dual CFExpress cards
  • Significant jump in resolution for an EOS-1 series camera
  • New DIGIC processor. Canon doesn’t usually introduce a new DIGIC processor in the EOS-1D series, but that will apparently change this time.
  • IBIS is in prototype cameras

Most likely the EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced in 2020, before the Summer Olympics. As soon as we have a more precise date for the announcement we’ll update you.

Stay tuned.

Canon Cameras EOS M100 Canon Eos M200

Nokishita reports that Canon will soon announce a new mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor, likely within a month.

The Canon EOS M200 will be available in black and white, and come as kit with the EF-M 15-45mm IS STM lens.

Is the Canon EOS M200 going to replace the EOS M100? In any case it will be an entry level mirrorless camera.

A “unique” Macro Lens To Be Announced Along With The High Megapixel Canon EOS R?

Canon Rumors C

A new Canon EOS R rumor surfaced.

It’s suggested that Canon might announce a “unique” macro lens for the Canon RF mount alongside with the high resolution EOS R camera expected within the next 6 months.

Unfortunately the source can’t tell what makes this macro lens “unique” and neither knows any specifications except the lens might be faster than f/2.8.

A few days ago a patent was spotted that seems to confirm our rumor about the resolution of the upcoming EOS R camera, around 80MP. A suggested specifications lists also surfaced:

  • A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
  • 80mp full-frame image sensor
  • A “new style” of joystick
  • Larger LCD than the EOS R
  • Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
  • The “viewfinder” can be tilted up

The high megapixel EOS R is going to replace the Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R. We were expecting the announcement in 2019 but it starts to appear it will come in 2020.

All high resolution EOS R rumors are listed here. More Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Are These The Specifications Of The Upcoming High-Megapixel Canon EOS R?

Canon Eos R

Yesterday a patent was spotted that seems to confirm our rumor about the resolution of the upcoming Canon EOS R camera.

Today, perfectly on schedule, a set of suggested specifications for the the high resolution EOS R surfaced. We were expecting it. Here are the specifications (of a prototype, according to the source):

  • A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
  • 80mp full-frame image sensor
  • A “new style” of joystick
  • Larger LCD than the EOS R
  • Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
  • The “viewfinder” can be tilted up and down
  • Dual SD card slots
  • No video specifications are known

All in all everything in the list above is plausible. A high resolution EOS R that’s going to replace the Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R would have everything listed above.

The high resolution EOS R was scheduled to be announced in 2019 but it starts to appear it will come in 2020. We are still not sure about this.

All high resolution EOS R rumors are listed here. More Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.
