Canon Rumor: A High End EOS M Model Coming 2020?

Canon Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

Here is a new Canon rumor. We leaked in February 2020 that Canon was set to announce two new EOS M camera in 2020.

This got confirmed a few weeks ago. Our source told us that these cameras would be the EOS M50 replacement and likely the EOS M5 Mark II.

A new rumor follows up to these rumors, suggesting that beside the EOS M50 Mark II (or M60) Canon will announce a “flagship” EOS M body. That is a EOS M camera of “greater durability and performance than you’d expect from an M5 follow-up“. So, no EOS M5 Mark II?

Be aware that the COVID-19 outbreak might delay Canon plans, and all this might happen in 2021.

Canon EOS R5 And EOS R6 Shipments Might Get Delayed (COVID-19 impact)

Canon EOS R5

The global COVID-19 impact might well delay shipments of both the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6. It was already murmured that it might happen (here and here).

First thing first, shipment of the EOS R5 and R6 will not begin earlier than July 2020, if not later. Next, and unfortunately, there are reasons to believe Canon will not be able to produce the number of cameras they planned and that means low quantities of both cameras to ship. At least for the next months. Consider that the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the production and supply chains of Canon and also of other manufacturers that Canon’s chains build on.

However, all rumors suggest the official announcement of the EOS R5 and EOS R6 will not be delayed and is still scheduled for May 2020.

As for the Canon EOS R5, 45MP resolution have indirectly been confirmed through the revealed specifications. Canon says the R5 will shoot DCI 8192 x 4320. That means the sensor has a width of 8192 pixels. Given the 3:2 ratio the height is 5461 pixels. All sums up to a 44.7MP sensor.

During Canon’s live-streamed announcement (you can watch it again here) Canon revealed the second teaser after the development announcement and a subsequent reveal of more specifications. All R5 coverage is listed here.

The Canon EOS R5 Has Zebra Peaking, Video Reveals

Zebra Peaking

Zebra peaking is something we missed in one of the EOS R5 hands-on videos we posted after Canon’s reveal of new EOS R5 specifications.

We featured five first impression videos posted by some lucky folks who got the chance to play around with the EOS R5. In the last one of the videos, now made private, you can briefly spot a menu section with a “Zebra settings” entry (image on top, thanks Jonathan for the tip).

It seems 45MP resolution are indirectly confirmed through the revealed specifications. Canon says the R5 will shoot DCI 8192 x 4320. That means the sensor has a width of 8192 pixels. Given the 3:2 ratio the height is 5461 pixels. All sums up to a 44.7MP sensor.

During the live-streamed announcement (you can watch it again here) Canon revelead the second teaser after the development announcement and a subsequent reveal of more specifications. All R5 coverage is listed here.

Canon EOS R6 Still Expected To Get Announced in May 2020

Canon Eos R6 Rumor

Latest rumors have it that Canon will announced the Canon EOS R6 in May 2020, as we were expecting.

However, there might be some issues with availability after the announcement, because of the global pandemic situation. The Canon EOS R5 is also expected to get released in May 2020, and here too there might be issues with availability. Availability depends by demand but at least for the EOS R5 it’s safe to say it will sell a lot. A few days ago Canon revealed some more specifications.

The EOS R6 will be less feature rich as the R5. If the EOS R5 is the mirrorless version of a 5-series camera then the EOS R6 is the mirrorless version of the 6-series cameras.

Rumored Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

  • 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS
  • 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
  • 4K @ 60p
  • FullHD @ 120p
  • Dual card slots
  • No top-down screen
  • Lower resolution EVF than the EOS R5
  • Build quality not as good as the EOS R5
  • New battery (Not sure if it’s the same as the EOS R5)
  • June 2020 launch

Canon Rumor: IBIS On Canon EOS M Cameras Mentioned Again

Canon Eos M6 Mark Ii Firmware Canon Rumor

Here is a new Canon rumor, suggesting again that Canon might feature IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) on the EOS M lineup.

This refers two the rumored EOS M cameras, the replacement for the EOS M50 (EOS M60 or EOS M50 II) and the EOS M5 Mark II. Both of these cameras were also already rumored before. However, the mew rumor suggests that at least one of the two upcoming EOS M cameras will have IBIS. We think this is possible.

We also know that IBIS will be featured on the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

Upcoming Canon announcements:

We expect Canon to announce a new Cinema camera on April 20, 2020, during a livestreamed conference, most likely the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III. The EOS R5 will not be announced on April 20, 2020, we expect the EOS R5 announcement before Summer 2020.
