There Might Be No New Canon EOS R (high resolution) Camera in 2019 [CW2]

Canon Eos R

There has been some rumoring that Canon might announce a high resolution EOS R camera in 2019. Nikon has one, the Z 7, so it appears to be plain logic that Canon will follow.

Apparently not. Latest rumors reaching us suggest the high resolution EOS R camera will not ship in 2019, and that’s likely to be a 2020 affair.

We’re not sure what to think about this rumor. Canon itself said they will announce six new RF lenses in 2019, most clearly aimed to a high resolution sensor, so it seems a bit strange they would hold back the exactly camera that could exploit those lenses. The rumor suggests Canon might withhold the high res body until CP+ 2020.

Now for the stranger part. Same rumor says a “high end” EOS R will be announced within 2019. A contradictory statement and that’s when we decided to downgrade the rumor to CW2.

Stay tuned.

Canon Might Release A Cinema Camera With RF Mount, In The Distant Future [CW1]

Eos C100 Cinema Camera

Rumor has it that Canon may have a Cinema camera with RF mount in the works.

However, such a camera isn’t to be expected before 2021, or even later. I have no idea if the RF mount is anything that would make something special out of Canon’s Cinema cameras.

Honestly, I don’t think we will see such a camera anytime soon, if ever.

What’s Happening With The Canon EOS-1D X Series?

Eos-1d X Mark Ii

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is Canon’s top dog, the Canon DSLR for professionals. Period.

Announced three years ago, the EOS-1D X Mark II isn’t yet ripe for replacement. Most high end Canon DSLRs have a longer lifecycle. However, it seems Canon is already actively working on the EOS-1D X Mark III.

The announcement of the EOS-1D X Mark III might come at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. It’s still a long time to go.

Rumor has it that Canon might release the EOS-1D X Mark III ahead of the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan, which start July 2020. No specifications leaked so far, besides that the EOS-1D X Mark III will be more of an evolutionary than revolutionary update.

There have been rumors suggesting Canon might ditch the EOS-1D X line in favour of a mirrorless offering. This is unreal for the time being. It will take years before the folks shooting at events like the Olympics will switch from their trusted workhorses to a new technology.

Canon’s High Resolution EOS R Camera Gets Another Mention

Canon Eos R

It was time to stir up rumors for Canon’s next, third mirrorless full frame camera.

We expect Canon to announce a high resolution mirrorless full frame camera, something our sources suggest since a while. There are little doubts that Canon will announce such a camera in 2019.

More uncertain are the specifications for this camera. Rumor has it that the Canon’s high resolution mirrorless full frame camera might have a 70MP sensor and even IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation). That’s a lot. Take this with a grain of salt.

What about the EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R? Suggestions that Canon might ditch the EOS 5Ds(R) in favour of a mirrorless offering have been around since a while. Moreover, Nikon already released a high resolution model, so it’s just logic to expect Canon to do the same.

Stay tuned.
