Professional Canon EOS R With Hybrid EF/RF Mount Might Have A Moving Sensor

Professional Canon EOS R Mirrorless

We got an update to the rumor suggesting Canon is working on a professional Canon EOS R body with a lens mount that can fit both EF and RF lenses.

This professional Canon EOS R body is said to play in the same league as the EOS-1D X series, i.e. the most professional tier in Canon’s gear lineup. This makes more sense than you might think at first glance. Given how committed Canon is to the EOS R system, an EOS R body with hybrid lens mount isn’t that unlikely in our opinion. And even if it is an engineering challenge, and for sure it is, Canon has the means and skills to build it.

We have been told (thanks) that the professional EOS R body with hybrid EF/RF mount will have a moving sensor, i.e. a sensor mounted on a mechanical system that can move the sensor forth and back to suit the different flange distance of EF and RF lenses (the distance between the lens mounted on the camera body and the camera’s image sensor).

We guess a moving sensor is the most feasible engineering approach to build a camera with hybrid EF/RF lens mount. Other technical solutions appear to be more difficult to realize. Given that you need to change the distance between the lens and the image sensor, what else could you do? Maybe moving the lens mount back and forth from the camera body? Doesn’t seem to us to be the better approach. Other feasible engineering approaches? Can’t think of any. I’m looking forward to spot a Canon patent application for a moving sensor.

Canon EOS R Mark II Rumor: Field Testing Already Started

Canon Eos R Mark Ii Rumor

Here is a Canon EOS R Mark II rumor. The EOS R Mark II would be the followup of Canon’s first full frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R.

It’s suggested that the Canon EOS R Mark II is already undergoing field testing by a selected group of Canon photographers.

The Canon EOS R Mark II might be announced ahead of Photokina 2020 (May 2010). It’s rumored the EOS R Mark II will have similar ergonomics as the also upcoming Canon EOS Rs (the high resolution EOS R, rumored to get announced February 2020 and to feature IBIS).

So far no specifications have leaked but be assured that the next Canon EOS R Mark II rumor will follow soon. Please note that there is also a pro-oriented EOS R model that’s rumored.

So far, only this preliminary specification list for the high resolution EOS R body surfaced over the web:

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R Rumor: Next Model Might Have IBIS On Board

Canon Eos R Rumor

Want Canon to eventually feature IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) on their cameras? This Canon EOS R rumor might make you happy.

We have been told (thanks) that Canon’s next EOS R camera will have IBIS on board. The source couldn’t tell us if the EOS R body with IBIS will be the high resolution R camera or the pro-oriented one.

We give this rumor credit. There is no 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. So it’s just a matter of when and on which camera it will appear first.

There have been rumors suggesting Canon might feature IBIS on the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. We think this is unlikely. First appearance of IBIS on a Canon camera will most likely be on a mirrorless body.

Our source couldn’t tell us any specifications of this upcoming EOS R model. If the rumored announcement date of at least one of the rumored EOS R bodies is reliable (February 2020) then we will soon know more.

So far, this preliminary specification list for the high resolution EOS R body surfaced over the web:

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

Stay tuned, the next EOS R rumor will come soon.

Canon EOS Rs Rumor, Possible Specifications Leak, 75MP Mentioned Again

Canon EOS Rs Rumor

Take this Canon EOS Rs rumor with a grain of salt.. A list of specifications for the upcoming high resolution Canon EOS R model leaked over the web.

Please note that “Rs” is a moniker created by the rumor mills, not a leaked denomination for this camera. The high resolution EOS R body might have a totally different name.

It seems the sensor resolution we leaked back in April gets another confirmation. We were told the EOS Rs will feature 75MP, and it gets backed by this Canon EOS Rs rumor (but 80MP have also been rumored).

The rumored specifications for the high resolution, Canon EOS Rs camera:

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

The list originates from a source who claims to have shot a prototype of the EOS Rs. Announcement is now expected early 2020, with February being the most likely candidate.

Stay tuned.

Here Is Another Unreleased Canon Camera Leaked Through Certification Authority

Canon Eos M200 Unreleased Canon Camera

Nokishita spotted another yet unreleased Canon camera registered at a wireless certification authority.

The camera’s denomination is “DS126821“, and according to the certification data it uses the Canon LP-E17 battery and has Bluetooth 4.2.

The Canon LP-E17 battery is used on the EOS M3, EOS M5, EOS M6, Rebel SL2, Rebel T6s, Rebel T6i, Rebel T7i, and EOS 77D. The camera DS126821 could refer either to a new EOS M model or a new Rebel. We think it’s likely it refers to the Canon EOS M5 Mark II.

A few weeks ago a rumor surfaced suggesting Canon is set to release two new EOS M cameras. The two rumored EOS M cameras are said to have these specifications:

Canon EOS M50 Mark II / EOS M60

  • 32.5mp APS-C CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 8
  • UHD 4K 30p / 24p
  • Full HD 120p
  • Rear monitor 3 inches 1.04 million dots Vari-angle touch panel
  • Announcement date September 2020

Another Canon EOS M camera

  • 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor
  • 3rd generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology / Eye AF compatible
  • Rear monitor 3-inch vari-angle touch panel
  • Announcement date Before July 2020
  • Price $849 with kit lens

Might DS126821 be one of these unreleased Canon camera?. Stay tuned.

Canon Working On A Pro EOS R With Hybrid EF/RF Lens Mount?

Top 10 Cameras Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R Pro Eos R Canon Lens Explorers Of Light

A pro EOS R model with a hybrid EF/RF lens mount is rumored over the web.

It’s suggested the upcoming pro EOS R, i.e. a Canon EOS R body aimed a photography professionals and on the same tier as the EOS-1D X lineup, might be able to natively mount both RF and EF mount lenses.

Being able to mount both EF and RF mount lenses without using an adapter would be a killer feature. It’s not surprising it is rumored for the fabled EOS-1D X-like professional EOS R that might be announced next year, or in 2021 (all rumors).

As weird as this rumor may sound we give it some credit. While technically complex to implement it is surely not impossible, and we know Canon has the know how and the skills to do it. On other words: it’s feasible for Canon.

What do you think, is this rumor plausible? All Canon rumors are listed here.
