Next Canon Announcement in May For RF 85mm f/1.2L Lens (EOS R System)

Canon RF 85mm

We were told Canon would make a camera related announcement at the end of April. It seems our source got the date wrong. And while being “camera related” it is not about a new camera.

The Canon announcement we were reporting doesn’t concerns a new Powershot or new EOS M camera. It is for the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens for the EOS R system. At the time of writing we do not know if the version with “Defocus Smoothing” will be announced or the versions without it.

We expect Canon to announce the RF 85mm f/1.2L lens around May 9.

Canon Set To Announce A New Camera Soon (PowerShot or EOS M)

Canon Rumors Eos R Full Frame Mirrorless

Canon will soon announce a new Camera soon, likely next week.

For the time being we do not know if Canon is going to announce a new PowerShot camera (the PowerShot G7 X Mark III would be a candidate) or a replacement for the EOS M5 or EOS M50. Replacement for the EOS 80D or EOS 7D Mark II are less likely. Don’t expect Canon’s upcoming high resolution EOS R camera until Fall 2019.

More to come soon, stay tuned.

Canon Might Have a 63MP Full Frame Image Sensor On Their Agenda, Leaked Document Suggests

An apparently legit Canon document describing a full frame image sensor with a resolution of 63MP leaked over the web.

The 35MM63MXSCD named CMOS sensor has Dual Pixel AF, shoots around 5fps, and is made with a 300nm manufacturing process.

We expect Canon to announce a high resolution EOS R camera in Q4 2019. Could this be the sensor Canon will feature in their upcoming high resolution EOS R camera? Hard to say. It might be but it might also well be one of Canon’s super-specialised image sensors, maybe even a prototype that never went into production.

The sensor in the leaked document seems at first glance to be the sensor rumored for the high res EOS R model, although the latest rumor we got was talking about a 75MP sensor. We tend to believe this sensor has nothing to do with the upcoming high resolution EOS R camera.

More about Canon’s special purpose sensors can be learned here.

What is you opinion?

Upcoming Canon APS-C Cameras Now Rumored To Have 32MP

Canon Rumors Eos R Full Frame Mirrorless

A few days after the rumor suggesting future Canon cameras featuring an APS-C sensor will have an “all-new” sensor with 24MP, the same source now reports 32MP might be possible.

We expect Canon to replace the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II, possibly with one new camera for both, and one or two models in the EOS M line-up. All latest Canon APS-C cameras already have a 24MP sensor.

Both 24MP and 32MP appear unrealistic in our opinion (both rumors are rated accordingly). At the end of the day a new APS-C sensor with 28MP seems to be the most likely. Take everything with a grain of salt (so far).

Stay tuned.

Canon Not Raising Resolution On Future APS-C Cameras, Keeping 24MP?

Eos M5

A new rumor from the series of tubes says that the next Canon APS-C cameras will feature an image sensor with the same resolution as currently the latest APS-C Canon cameras have, i.e. 24MP.

The 24MP sensor is said to be “all-new” but there are no specifications so far. The “all-new” sensor is supposed to be featured in the upcoming replacements for the EOS 80D, 7D Mark II, and the EOS M series.

What “all-new” means is unclear. Although we spotted some patents referring to Quad Pixel AF and stacked sensor technology, it’s unlikely Canon will feature it in upcoming cameras.

Stay tuned.
