Canon EOS R5c Announcement At The Beginning of 2022?

Canon Rumors Canon EOS R5c

We didn’t get the Canon EOS R3, despite all the rumors pointing to an imminent announcement. But despair not: here is a Canon EOS R5c rumor for you.

The EOS R5c would be the cinema/movie making version of the EOS R5. Rumor-wise the EOS R5c got little attention. Canon Rumors reports with confidence that the EOS R5c might get announced in Q1 2022. The rumor also suggests that the announcement was postponed after a scheduled October 2021 release.

While getting most of the features of the Canon EOS R5, the EOS R5c might also sport:

  • active cooling
  • slightly different form factor
  • more codecs for video recording
  • full-size HDMI port.

Still a long time to go for an announcement in Q1 2022. Stay tuned.

The Canon EOS R3 Is Coming Soon, But Likely Not Tomorrow

Canon Eos R3 Specifications

It seems someone jumped the gun to early with the Canon EOS R3 announcement date. Expected to get announced tomorrow after a rumor made it’s round, it might still be months away.

PetaPixel reports that multiple “sources outside of Canon” have told them that there is no Canon EOS R3 announcement to expect. Neither tomorrow nor in the near future. According to PetaPIxel:

[…] the EOS R3 will not be announced tonight nor will any additional information be revealed. It’s unclear why this date was specifically pointed to, but the company is reportedly still months away from the official release. While it is possible that other aspects of the rumor could come to pass, no official announcement about the camera will be made this week.

Along with many Canon EOS R3 rumors came also the suggestion that the R3 would be announced ready before the Olympics 2021. As PetaPixel notes “Professional sports photographers are unlikely to trust a brand new camera for such an important photo mission“.

If PetaPixel’s sources are right it means we will see the EOS R not earlier than Fall 2021. In the meantime have a look at these EOS R3 images.

Here are are the known and rumored EOS R3 specification in one list:

  • 30.1mp backside illuminated image sensor (resolution is not confirmed yet)
