More Information on Unreleased Canon Camera (EOS 90D/EOS 7D Mark III?)

Eos 7d Mark Iii

Nokishita spotted a yet unreleased Canon camera registered at a wireless certification authority, the registration number is DS126801.

DS126801 seems to have WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and the larger LP-E6N battery. This battery is used on the EOS 80D, EOS 7D Mark II, and the EOS R.

According to Nokishita, the camera named DS126801 is the same described as K437 in the programming code of the latest EOS Utility. Reading the code you learn that DS126801/K437 has a resolution of 6940×4640, which is approximately 32MP.

Is this the resolution of the next Canon APS-C camera?

K437 already leaked in June 2018, and a bit later we got a tip saying it could be the EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors) or EOS 90D. We had different rumors about the sensor resolution of K437, but a resolution of 6940×4640. i.e. 32MP leaked already in September 2018, so this new post by Nokishita is more a confirmation than a new rumor. Also note that recent rumors we got suggest Canon might replace both the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II with one new camera.

So, is this the replacement for the EOS 80D and/or the EOS 7D Mark II? It’s possible. It’s less likely that K437 points to a new EOS R model or a full frame DSLR. If this is going to be a new Canon APS-C flagship then it gets a big resolution bump from the 24MP resolution of current Canon APS-C DSLRs.

Stay tuned.

The Lens “Holy Trinity” for Canon EOS R Might be Released In July 2019

Canon Eos R

While we are now rather confident that Canon will announce the RF 85mm f/1.2L lens on May 9, 2019, there is a new rumor about more lenses for the EOS R system.

Canon might release what is commonly called the “Holy Trinity” of lenses (because of the focal lengths and f/2.8, which are more or less standard on a full frame system), i.e. the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS, before the end of July 2019.

Canon already announced the development of these and other lenses.

Stay tuned.

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

Canon RF Lenses

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.
