Canon EOS C300 Mark III (and other stuff) To Be Announced Ahead Of NAB 2019?

Canon EOS C300 Mark III

Canon might announced two new Cinema EOS cameras ahead of NAB Show 2019.

One of these new Cinema camera will most likely be the replacement for the Canon EOS C300 Mark II (we reported back in November 2018), while the other camera is rumored to be a high frame camera.

It’s also suggested that the Canon EOS C300 Mark III will might have sensor upgrade option for 8K video. This will most likely be a paid upgrade, apparently to keep the initial price competitive (we reported). 4.4.4 codec and electronic image stabilisation will likely be on board.

Along with these cameras Canon might also announce a CN-E 100mm cinema prime lens

Canon Instant Cameras With Built-In Printer On The Way?

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

Nokishita spotted a list of Canon camera SKUs which point to instant cameras, and some might have a built-in printer.

Here’s the list:

  • 3879C001: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Gold)
  • 3879C002: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (White)
  • 3879C003: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Blue)
  • 3879C004: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Red)
  • 3884C001: IVY instant camera (green)
  • 3884C002: IVY Instant Camera (Yellow)
  • 3884C003: IVY instant camera (blue)
  • 3884C004: IVY instant camera (red)

The interesting thing here is that Canon mobile printer series have the moniker IVY. This, and the “2in1” denomination, makes us think some of the cameras listed above have a high probability to be instant cameras with a built-in printer, like the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10

Canon RF 14-21mm f/1.4L Lens For EOS R Systems Coming 2020? [CW2]

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

Rumor has it that an RF 14-21mm f/1.4L lens for the Canon EOS R system is currently in advanced development stage and will likely be one of a couple of world’s first lenses coming for the RF mount in 2020.

There is an US patent application (2018-0314060) which supports the rumor.

We are usually cautious with rumors about gear which is said to be announced much later, as it is in this case. On the other hand, Canon stated more than one time that the RF mount will allow them to build “world’s first” lenses, hence a RF 14-21mm f/1.4L lens is in the realm of possibilities.

For a list of existing lenses for the Canon EOS R system have a look on what is on display at CP+ 2019.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Undergoing Field Testing?

Eos-1d X Mark Ii

Rumor has it Canon has started to field test the replacement for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.

The EOS-1D X Mark II was released in 2016 so it seems a bit early for an announcement. However, being this the top professional Canon DSLR it wouldn’t be strange if Canon spends a lot of time testing it.

Our bet is Canon will announce the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III before the Olympic games in 2020. So far no specifications have leaked.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS 80D And EOS 7D Mark II To Be Replaced By One New APS-C DSLR? [CW2]

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

We have been told (thanks) that Canon will not release a replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II. Instead, there will be one model to replace both.

So, no EOS 90D nor EOS 7D Mark III? The suggestion comes from a new source, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s entirely possible, though. Given the success Canon’s mirrorless cameras are having (both EOS M and EOS R systems) it’s plausible that Canon starts investing less in APS-C DSLR development. Moreover, both replacements are long overdue.

If this rumor is reliable, expect a new Canon APS-C flagship with plenty of features, combining the best of the Canon EOS xxD series (e.g. tiltable screen) with the best of the EOS 7D series (e.g. weather sealing, sturdiness), and an entirely newly developed sensor.

We are rather cautious with rumors flooding our inbox after a major Canon announcement, since in our experience they rarely are reliable. However, it’s not the first time we hear about Canon planing to put the EOS xxD and EOS 7D line-ups together. Given the sheer amount of more or less entry-level oriented Canon APS-C DSLRs, it definitely possible.

Stay tuned.
