Were These The Specifications For The Canon EOS C50?

Canon Eos C70 Canon Eos C50

A few weeks ago we got a tip about two upcoming Canon EOS R cameras, one of these was a video-oriented camera. It might have been the Canon EOS C50.

The source gave us some specifications for this video/cinema oriented camera, which was named to us as EOS R5c (or R3c):

  • Same sensor technology as the EOS R5 but with 11.25MP resolution
  • Records 4K/120P with no crop
  • Does 2.8K supersampling in super-35 mode
  • Has newly developed heat sink
  • Dual Pixel AF performance in low light better than EOS R5 and EOS R6

Now, another source contacted us and told us that the camera specifications listed above refer to the EOS C50, an upcoming Canon Cinema camera with RF mount. We already expected the C50 to get announced with the Canon EOS C70.

As usual, I am thankful for more insights and constructive comments.

New Canon Multi-Purpose Cameras Show Up At Certification Authority

ME20F-SH Canon Multi-purpose

Canon has a long history in making multi-purpose or otherwise highly specialized cameras. It seems two more are going to be added.

Two Canon multi-purpose cameras showed up at a Russian certification agency: the ML-100 and the ML-105. You can see the cameras listed in the image below, along with two already released multi-purpose/specialized cameras, the ME20F-SH and the ME200S-SH. So far we have no precise idea what these cameras are about. Maybe another Canon camera that can see in the dark?

Canon Speedlite EL-1 Specifications Leak Ahead Of Announcement

Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT

After the Canon EOS M50Mark II product brochure leak, here is the Canon Speedlite EL-1 product brochure leak.

Marketing material for the upcoming Canon Speedlite EL-1 leaked over the web. Please note that the text below is machine translated.

Stabilization of light emission amount and improvement of continuous light emission performance

  • By adopting a newly developed highly durable xenon tube, it suppresses variations in the amount of light emitted and realizes stable light emission.
  • Equipped with a newly developed active cooling system that uses a blower fan and glass panel. Circulating air inside the strobe
  • Suppresses the temperature rise of the heat spot. Heat resistance is improved by combining with a highly durable xenon tube, and the number of continuous light emission is about 160 times.

Minimal emission of 1/8192

  • By adopting a newly developed xenon tube and improving the accuracy of light emission control, stable minute light emission of at least 1/8192 is realized during manual light emission.
  • The setting range for manual flash has been expanded from 1/128 to 1/8192, expanding the range of use for high-sensitivity shooting. Handheld strobe
  • It enables new shooting expressions in scenes that require delicate light, such as when shooting portraits against a starry sky with ultra-high sensitivity.

Comfortable strobe shooting with the adoption of a new lithium-ion battery

  • By adopting a large-capacity lithium-ion battery LP-EL capable of discharging a large current and newly designing a charging circuit, strobe charging is completed after light emission.
  • Achieves high-speed charging with a charging time of approximately 0.1 to 0.9 seconds. Speedlite EL-1 alone, “Speedlite 600EX II RT” and external power supply
  • Faster charging is possible than when using the combination of the battery pack “CP-E4N”.
  • Achieves 1/1 light emission of about 335 times when fully charged. It can also be used for mass shooting over a long period of time. Compact battery pack “CP-E4N”
  • By using in combination with, it achieves about 680 times of light emission at 1/1 light emission.
  • For the first time as a Canon external strobe, it supports battery level display. Easy-to-understand battery replacement timing, battery
  • Exchange can be done efficiently.
  • Adopts the same battery charger “LC-E6” as cameras such as “EOS R5”.

Full basic performance and excellent operability

  • Achieves a large amount of light emission with a maximum guide number of approximately 60. In addition, the strobe light irradiation angle corresponds to the focal length of the lens, 24-200 mm. Built-in wide
  • By using a panel, it also supports the shooting angle of view of an ultra-wide-angle lens with a focal length of 14 mm. Also, is the upward bounce angle 90 ° in the conventional way?
  • Expanded to 120 °.
  • Adopts a dust-proof and drip-proof structure while being equipped with an active cooling system that suppresses temperature rise. Sealing on the mating surfaces of exterior parts
  • Maintains airtightness by applying. Packing and rubber materials are used for the battery compartment lid and terminal cover, and the mounting legs are “dust-proof and drip-proof.”
  • Equipped with an “adapter”, it can be attached to a compatible camera to prevent water droplets and dust from entering the strobe contact area.
  • Wireless strobe photography via radio wave communication and optical communication is possible. Supports both sender and receiver functions. Away from the strobe and camera
  • It is possible to produce various lights with an off-camera by arranging it in a position and shooting. -Radio communication The rear curtain can be synchronized during wireless shooting.
  • By installing a modeling lamp with two-color LEDs, lighting is possible while imagining the color and direction of light before shooting.
  • When the light emission mode is switched from E-TTL automatic light control to manual light emission, shooting can be continued with the light emission amount memorized by automatic light control.
  • Equipped with “Molly”.
  • Intuitive operability is realized by adopting a joystick.
  • The bounce adapter diffuses the strobe light to suppress the shadow of the subject and achieve a more natural depiction.
  • By attaching a color filter, you can change the white balance of both the subject and the background.
  • By assigning “Strobe function setting” to the camera button in “Button customization” of the camera, the strobe setting can be changed to the camera.
  • Can be changed to enable efficient shooting.

We expect Canon to announced the Canon Speedlite EL-1 in a few days along with the EOS M50 Mark II.

  • Can be transferred to (Membership Plan).
  • Compatible with the automatic image transmission application “Image Transfer Utility 2” to a PC. Self-images and videos to the paired running PC
  • Dynamic transmission is possible. Furthermore, by registering in “image.canon”, images sent to a PC can be automatically transferred to the cloud.
  • Video performance that expands the enjoyment
  • By using the “Add vertical location information” function, even videos shot in the vertical position by the camera can be automatically played back in the vertical position on a smartphone or PC * 1.
  • Smooth video posting to SNS such as Instagram and YouTube is possible.

If you have set the disclosure range and events in advance from your smartphone or PC, you can simply connect to Wi-Fi without preparing a distribution unit.

Live distribution on YouTube is possible only with the camera itself.
