I might have mixed up some things, but…didn’t we already knew that Canon would open the RF mount to other manufacturer? Maybe I did and forgot to post about it.

Digicame-Info reports a third-party rumor that Canon might be set to open the RF mount specifications to other manufacturers. I do not know how much in this rumor is wishful thinking and/or plain speculation. Indeed, Canon already opened the RF mount specifications to licensed manufacturers, as they said in this interview:

Although still limited to a few companies, Canon has already opened up the RF mount to third-party lens manufacturers through licensing. If we receive a request for an open mount from a third-party lens manufacturer, we will consider whether to license it according to Canon’s own business plan and strategy. In fact, we are in contact with several third-party lens companies in this regard. We separate whether or not to open the RF door to third parties and whether or not Canon’s own product line is complete.

So, I guess this was another click-bait rumor with the aim to waste your and my time and to get some more clicks. That’s how it is in this shitty industry based on lies and crap ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Spend your time with actual photography and not with bs.

Are These The Canon EOS R5 Mark II Specifications?

A set of alleged Canon EOS R5 Mark II specifications surface on the interweb of rumor sites.

Coming from a source with no known reliability record, these are the suggested Canon EOS R5 Mark II specifications:

  • 62mp Stacked CMOS Image Sensor
  • Variable resolution of 62mp, 31mp, 15.5mp
  • 8K recording up to 60fps internally
  • 4K recording up to 120fps internally
  • DIGIC X2s Processor
  • Dual CFexpress Type-B Card Slots
  • Eye control autofocus
  • A revised variable angle LCD panel
  • 5.76m-DOT 120fps EVF
  • Multi-function hot shoe
  • New battery, but same form as the LP-E6
  • New button layout and controls
  • Launch of new Canon camera app at the same time
  • Projected February 2024 Announcement

Besides the “DIGIC X2s” moniker for the CPU, there is nothing really new here. More an aggregation of various rumors that surfaced in the past. Also, in our experience, it is way to early for a reliable set of specifications; so take it with the necessary amount of salt, even if the source claims it comes “from an internal sales meeting […] with a large retailer”.

Stay tuned.

More Cameras With Stacked Sensor Coming From Canon?

Latest rumor has it that Canon might be set to release more cameras featuring a stacked sensor.

Stacked sensor was first introduced with the Canon EOS R3. The source of the rumor claims that Canon will release three new cameras with a stacked sensor. One might be the fabled EOS R1, another one might be the EOS R5 Mark II. Don’t get too excited, though.

The rumor doesn’t come with any consolidating argument nor with a timeline or release date. It’s all very speculative and we recommend you take it with a grain of salt. if ever, these sensors will be seen in 2024.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R5 Mark II To Get 60MP?

A new rumor about the Canon EOS R5 Mark II from what appears to be a new, recently surfaced rumor outlet. We never heard from these guys and do not know who they are. That’s to say that you should apply the proverbial truckload of salt. Most rumors are nothing but speculations or educated guesses.

Latest has it that the Canon EOS R5 Mark II might feature a 60MP imaging sensor. The current model, the EOS R5, already sports a 45MP sensor. The bump to 60MP wouldn’t be that unrealistic. Quoting the source:

Through some industry people, we have found out that it is very likely that the EOS R5 Mark II will get a resolution bump to 60mp, which seems to be a resolution embraced by other brands already. Reports suggest that the camera is already in the hands of the usual early testers as Canon works to refine the camera.

The same sources said that the R52 will also have the capability of shooting 8K/60P. We do not know if the increased framerate for 8K/60P will be internal RAW. External recording capabilities are not yet known.

But, hey!, what about the all-destroying overheating? Not surprisingly, “Canon has developed better cooling for the successor [the EOS R5]”. Of course they did.

The announcement date is now rumored to be around the first half of 2024. All Canon EOS R5 Mark II rumors are listed here.

Forget rumors, enjoy life and snap pictures.

Here Are All Canon EOS R1 Rumors Neatly Summed Up

Nab 2023 Canon Eos R5 Mark Ii Canon Eos R8 CP+ 2024 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

It’s still not here, and it’s the favorite rumor for many. The fabled EOS R flagship, the Canon EOS R1.

Don’t get me wrong: there will be a Canon EOS R1, for the simple fact that it is plain logic that there will be one. That people is exploiting this since three years again and again with the same rumors is an entirely different story. However, Canon Rumors has neatly summed up everything that has been reported about the Canon EOS R1:

  • Larger body than the Canon EOS R3
  • Much larger OLED panel on the back of the camera.
  • Resolution will be “around 45mp”, which Canon feels is the sweet spot for resolution.
  • The EVF will be the “highest resolution” when it launches, it will reportedly be a Canon made EVF.
  • Global shutter? Some say yes, others say no. For the moment, we have no idea.
  • The battery will be a variation of the LP-E19
  • The EOS R1 will get dual CFe slots.
  • Expect “a more EOS-1D style ergonomic design”.
  • The top down display will be colour instead of monochrome if you so desire.
  • An “all-new autofocus system”.
  • Video features? We have no idea.
  • The announcement will be a “drawn-out affair”, which we think means a development announcement first and then getting the camera in pros hands to do the final tweaks to firmware before an official announcement.

One thing that never ever is missing from this kind of rumors is the “all-new autofocus-system” :-)

Take the list above with a solid amount of salt. There is absolutely nothing to be sure about so far. Until the usual few Asian sites will deliver the real stuff, we can just speculate.

Forget rumors, go out snapping pics!
