More Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Information Leaks (IBIS still rumored)

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Ii

We are getting closer to the announcement of Canon’s next top dog flagship DSLR, and some new bits come in.

A new set of rumored specifications for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III surfaced over the web. According to the source, the specifications below apply to a working prototype of the EOS-1D X Mark III.

  • 28.1mp full-frame CMOS
  • Up to 30fps still shooting
  • Dual DIGIC 9 (would be the first time the EOS-1D series would introduce a new processor)
  • IBIS
  • New and larger rear LCD, the source said it looked brighter too.
  • February announcement

This is the second time that IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) is mentioned to be featured on the EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors). And that sounds a bit weird to us. Why should Canon introduce IBIS on a top tier DSLR, which will most likely be bought by people already owning lots of expensive and image stabilised lenses? Wouldn’t it make more sense on a mirrorless camera? IBIS on a future Canon mirrorless camera has already been suggested by a Canon exec. For sure Canon filed a remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with IBIS. IBIS is coming to Canon cameras, that’s a sure thing. But will the EOS-1D X Mark III be the first to feature it?

However, announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is expected in February 2020, so stay tuned for more.

Two New Canon Cinema EOS Cameras Coming In 2020

Canon Cinema

Canon announced only one Cinema camera in 2019, the Canon EOS C500 Mark II. Next year we might see two new Canon Cinema cameras.

One of these new Canon cameras will be the Canon EOS C300 Mark III (Super 35mm and 4K video), and it will have the same modular design as the EOS C500 Mark II.

The other one might be the replacement for the Canon EOS C100 Mark II. For this one it’s also suggested it may have the Canon RF mount (introduced with the EOS R system).

Finally, it seems 2020 will not be the year Canon is going to introduce 8K video to its Cinema line-up. We may see some sort of development announcement, though.

Stay tuned.

The High Res Canon EOS R Camera Most Likely Is A 2020 Affair (and what else to expect)

Canon Eos R Firmware

It seems the announcement of the next Canon EOS R model, i.e. the anticipated high resolution EOS R, will happen in 2020.

In the past our sources always suggested Canon might announce the high megapixel Canon EOS R (all rumors) toward the end of 2019. We have now reasons to believe the announcement will happen within the first half of 2020, maybe already in the first quarter of the year.

There are tow main photo events to look out in 2020. One is CP+, scheduled for the end of February 2020, the other is Photokina, happening in May 2020. Latest rumor suggests Canon might have an important announcement scheduled for February 11, 2020 (which happens to be before the start of CP+).

Both the high megapixel Canon EOS R (all rumors) and the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors) can be expected to be announced in the weeks between February and May 2020, in any case before the Summer Olympics.

And what about the Canon EOS R for astrophotography that leaked recently? It’s not clear when Canon is set to announce it. But given that the leaflet and other informations already leaked it can’t be too far away. Expect more information soon.

What else to expect? There still is the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS we are waiting for. It’s safe to assume this lens will be announced in 2019, most likely within a month. 2020 will also see a bunch of new Canon RF lenses.

Stay tuned.

Canon Might Have A Video Camera With RF Mount On Their Agenda, Patent

RF Mount

Is Canon working on a video camera with RF mount? A patent suggest they might.

Canon patent application 2019‑161567 (Japan) describes a compact video camera that looks like the Canon XC10, and we think it has the RF mount, introduced by Canon with EOS R full frame mirrorless camera system.

Don’t get too excited, however. Most patent applications never go into production. Never the less, it might be a hint that Canon is investing in the RF mount. In any case, an interesting Canon patent application. Please note that the patent application doesn’t explicitly mention the RF mount. We think it might be an RF mount because according to the patent pictures, the lens mount is too close to the sensor to be an EF mount.

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
