Yet Another Mention Sigma Is Going To Reveal RF Mount Plans Soon

Sigma Canon Eos R Art Prime Rf Mount

We already knew Sigma would make RF lenses. Now another mention surfaced over the web.

We were told Sigma would make lenses for the EOS R back in July 2019. Our source told us Sigma would announce these lenses after they released a bunch of lenses for Sony MILCs.

Latest rumor about Sigma’s RF mount plans has it the company will reveal these plans early 2020. This too fits with our previous rumor. Guess sometimes the Internet silently recycles rumors.

Besides all rumors, you shouldn’t have any doubt that Sigma will jump on the RF mount bandwagon. It’s just plain logic. And that’s great news for all EOS R shooters since Sigma’s recent lenses are nothing less than outstanding.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumor, 24MP Sensor Suggested

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras

Canon announced the development of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III a few weeks ago. Since they did not disclose all the specifications there is always room for a new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor.

It suggested the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III might sport a 24MP image sensor. It seems the people that is testing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is not allowed to use a memory card in the camera, so for the time being there is no reliable intel available about the image sensor. This might change in the future. However, a 24MP is considered likely.

We expect the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to get announced to the masses at the beginning of February 2020. An early 2020 announcement has been confirmed by an authoritative source In the meantime I’m sure we will see more Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor surface.

Stay tuned, there is more to come soon.

About Canon EOS Ra

Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography

Capture the intricacies of a starry night sky with the new EOS Ra camera — Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography. Building on the success of the EOS R, the EOS Ra offers 30x magnification in both the viewfinder and in Live View shooting for more accurate focus.

Modified Filter for Enhanced Night Sky Recording

Positioned in front of the CMOS imaging sensor, The EOS Ra’s infrared-cutting filter is modified to permit approximately 4x as much transmission of hydrogen alpha rays at the 656nm wavelength, vs. standard EOS R cameras. This allows for a higher transmission of deep red infrared rays emitted by nebulae, without requiring any other specialized optics or accessories.

Original post:

Ahead of the its announcement, product images of the Canon EOS Ra leaked over at Nokishita. The product leaflet already leaked weeks ago.

The Canon EOS Ra is an EOS R full frame mirrorless camera modified for astrophotography. While the camera operation mode is the same as the EOS R, the EOS Ra has approximately four times the transmittance of hydrogen-alpha light (656 nm) as the EOS R.

Canon eos Ra

Photographs of subjects that reflect a lot of infrared light will therefore appear redder than they actually are. This is good for astrophotography and less optimal for normal photography. With the EOS Ra it may not be possible to obtain an appropriate color balance and uneven colors may result when shooting normal subjects.

Announcement coming soon, stay tuned.

More Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumors Surface After Development Announcement

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras

Some new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumors surfaced on the web after Canon’s development announcement.

So far some of the previously rumored features have proven to be unreliable (6K video, 30fps, IBIS). Some people in the industry thinks Canon did the development announcement for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to counter the speculations of the rumor mills.

The latest rumored specifications for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III are of the vague nature, and for that reason might be even correct:

  • The battery life is nothing short of amazing, much better than the EOS-1D X Mark II
  • The silent shutter mode in liveview is absolutely silent
  • The eye AF works incredibly well (via liveview we are assuming)
  • The AF-ON trackpad is so innovative, works fast and it very precise. In the source’s words, “it’s a real revolution. Nobody will be using the old joystick”

It’s plausible that Canon might introduce these features on their next full frame flagship.

We now know for sure that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be released early 2020, most likely in February.

There’s A High-end Canon EOS R In Consideration, Says Canon Exec, And It Will Have IBIS

Canon Eos R Firmware

Not the first time that a Canon exec suggests there will be a high-end Canon EOS R model, but it’s nice to hear it again.

The Canon exec is David Parry, Canon UK’s product intelligence consultant, interviewed by the folks at Digital Camera World. And what you can read below about the high-end Canon EOS R is marketing department language at its finest:

There’s a high-end EOS R in consideration […] So we are considering bringing a high end EOS R to the market.

If we do, it will have dual card slots, it will be that sort of level, and under development is in-body image stabilization. So we are looking at this technology, it is in development with us.

I think in-body IS is really exciting for us, if we do bring it to market and it does come across, I think it could be really good and I think it says something about our [EOS] R series.

So, just to get it straight.

  • Canon is considering to release a high end EOS R body
  • If they do (if!) then it will have dual card slots
  • If they do it then it will have IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
  • IBIS is exciting and would be good for the EOS R lineup

There is no reason to doubt that Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that another Canon exec told the world about. It’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless.

Stay tuned
