Information About A Canon EOS R Model With 26MP Making Rounds

Canon Rumors Eos R Full Frame Mirrorless

A rumor claiming that a Canon EOS R model with 26MP is in Canon’s pipeline is making its rounds on the web.

The rumor builds on a post by Nokishita dated March 2018, where a list of unreleased Canon gear is published (see image below).

UPDATE: we posted the wrong model number. There is indeed a unreleased 26MP full frame mirrorless camera.

  • Mirrorless camera
  • Full size [full frame, editor’s note]
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Maximum image size of test machine: 6240 × 4160 [makes up to 26MP, editor’s note]
  • Probably will be released within 1 year data as 5D Mark IV [K349], the image size may be a dummy possibility)

While there might be a 26MP EOS R model on Canon’s agenda, so far nothing ever leaked about such a camera nor have there been any reliable hints in this direction. For the time being, this is a wishmor (wishful rumor),

Stay tuned, February 14 is the day Canon will most likely announce their next full frame mirrorless camera.

A Third Canon EOS R Model Coming In 2019? [CW 1]

Canon Eos R

Shortly before the expected announcement of a new Canon EOS R model, a new rumors emerges from the web.

Latest has it that Canon might announce a third Canon EOS R model in 2019. So far we are reasonably sure only about one model, which we expect to be announced on February 14. It will most likely be named EOS RP.

However, Canon Rumors seems to rather confident that there might be a third Canon EOS R model on Canon’s 2019 agenda:

  • The camera is in “final” development, but production has not started.
  • Dual card slots are present in the body, one being SD, the other being something else.
  • The touch bar is gone, replaced by a familiar joystick.

This is the first time we here about a third EOS R model. It’s possible, but we think it’s highly unlikely. It also puzzles us that the only specifications so far are related to two of the strongest criticism the EOS R had to face: no dual card slot and the touch bar.

The Canon EOS RP Might Be An Entry Level DSLR And Not A Mirrorless Camera

According to Nokishita, the recently surfaced moniker Canon EOS RP might not belong to a new full frame mirrorless model in the EOS R line-up but instead to an entry level DSLR.

The machine translated text below seems to suggested this.

That said, consider that a lot may get lost in translation. The underlined text above could also mean that the two unreleased Canon cameras leaked through wireless certification authorities are the EOS RP and an entry level DSLR, though that seems less likely.

We expect a Canon mirrorless announcement on February 14. Stay tuned, we will soon know more.

Updated List Of Unreleased Canon Gear Spotted At Registration Authorities

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Nokishita posted an updated list of unreleased Canon gear that has been registered at wireless certification authorities.

As you can see in the list below, there are two cameras that will either be a DSLR or a full frame mirrorless camera (RF mount). The last item the list below (PC 2366) appears to be the already leaked PowerShot G7 X Mark III.

DS 126751 and Ds 126761 have different SKUs, which might mean these models will come in different color variations. Since DS 126751 is made in Japan (Oita plant), we think it is either a new EOS R model or a higher end DSLR (EOS 7D Mark III?). We expect Canon to make a major mirrorless related announcement on February, 14. It may well be about a new full frame mirrorless camera.

    • Digital camera (single lens reflex or RF mounting machine)
    • Made in Japan (Oita Plant)

We can add a bit of information to our leak about a major, mirrorless related Canon announcement expected for mid February 2019.

We have been told that Canon is set to hold this announcement on February 14, 2019. We still have no reliable intel about what Canon is going to announce, but a new full frame mirrorless model is very likely. Some new RF lenses might also be on the plan.

In the past days a new moniker emerged from the web, Canon EOS RP, and we have reasons to believe it will be a new EOS R model. Our sources always suggested Canon would announce a high resolution model in Q1 2019. Others believe an entry level EOS R model is in the pipeline.

Stay tuned, more to some soon…

Major Canon Mirrorless Announcement Coming Around Mid February [CW4]

Canon Eos Rp

From a very good source we heard that Canon is set to make an important “mirrorless-related” announcement around mid February.

Our source didn’t know if it was about a new camera or about new lenses for the EOS R system (both are possible). However, after the leak about a Canon EOS RP model, we are rather confident Canon will announce a new EOS R model, which will likely be named EOS RP (P for professional?).

A new EOS R model is rumoured since a while. According to the people we talked to, it will be a high resolution model.

We feel very confident that our source gave us a reliable hint about the mid February announcement.

Stay tuned, more to come very soon…
