A Low Res Video And A High Res Photo Cam For The Canon EOS R Lineup?

Canon Eos R6 Manual

We got a rumor from a new source about a possible Canon EOS R5C (or R3C) video camera and a Canon EOS R5S (or R3S) camera with a high resolution sensor.

The Canon EOS R5C/R3C and the EOS R5S/R3S are said to share the same camera body form factor. Here is what else got suggested:

  • R5C/R3C has the same sensor technology as the EOS R5 but with half resolution
  • R5C/R3C records 4K/120P with no crop
  • R5C/R3C does 2.8K supersampling in super35 mode
  • Both have a newly developed heat sink
  • R5S/R3S has “double-width resolution sensor of EOS R6
  • R5S/R3S does 12fps
  • Dual Pixel AF performance in low light better than EOS R5 and EOS R6.
  • R5S/R3S “high resolution monster being hybrid for quality and speed

To be honest we have some doubts about this rumor. Besides the moniker uncertainty there is more that makes us wonder. Even if something might have got lost in translation, we wonder what “double-width resolution” exactly means.

Take this with a huge grain of salt. All Canon rumors are listed here.

These Three Canon RF Lenses Are Scheduled For 2021 (possibly)

Canon RF 50mm

We got a tip about a bunch of Canon RF mount lenses that Canon might announce in 2021.

Our source suggested that Canon is set to release three RF mount lenses within 2021:

All in all the three lenses are at least plausible. We hope to learn more soon.

There are other RF mount lenses rumored to come in 2021:

  • RF 18-45mm IS STM
  • RF 24mm Macro IS
  • RF 100-400mm IS USM

Stay tuned.

Canon’s High Resolution EOS R Camera Undergoing Field Testing?

High Resolution Eos R

Did you forget about the high resolution EOS R model we reported first about and that was confirmed by a Canon exec? Well, it’s here again.

A new rumor about the high resolution EOS R showed up, and it seems it sums up everything that was rumored in the past. The source claims that a small group of selected photographers is already testing this camera. The rumored resolution is 90MP, which fits pretty well with the resolution we were tipped last year. There is also a Canon patent that seems to confirm what our sources told us.

All in all there is nothing new coming with this rumor. Sometimes the interweb just recycles what is already there, and easily gets forgotten. That’s how the rumor industry works. Take it or leave it. The only new information coming with this rumor concerns the EVF (Electric ViewFinder), said to be larger than on actual models.

That’s all. So far no specifications nor an announcement date have been suggested.

Stay tuned.

Can Canon Make An R Series Camera Less Expensive Than The EOS RP? (yes, a Canon exec said)

Canon Eos Rp Kit

A new rumor surfaced, suggesting Canon is working on an entry level camera with a price point below the Canon EOS RP. All fine, but it’s nothing new and we knew before.

Back in April 2019, Michael Burnhill, European Technical Support Manager at Canon Europe said in an interview:

Question: Do you see a full-frame camera coming in at a price below the RP?

Michael Burnhill Yes.

The rumor source suggests Canon might release such an entry level camera with a price below $999 in the first half of 2021. A bit of a recycled one, this one.

However, even with a Canon exec saying there will be an entry level EOS R camera below the EOS RP, the question is: can Canon make and sell a full frame mirrorless camera that costs less than the actual RP price of $999? Might be difficult, in our opinion. What would be the price point, $700? Not realistic. If you have an idea how this might work out please let me know in the comment section.

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R With APS-C Rumor Surfaces Yet Again (now it’s 2021)

Canon Eos R With Aps-c

Some rumor are surprisingly smart when it comes to the perfect timing. The long running and now-and-then surfacing rumor about a Canon EOS R with APS-C sensor seems to belong to this category.

Just a few days after someone suggested Canon might kill the EOS M lineup, someone else suggests that Canon will release an EOS R model with crop sensor.

We always had a hard time to buy this rumor, independently of the source. The Canon EOS M lineup is well established, has a fond user base, and is a best seller with the EOS M50. So why the hell should Canon kill the EOS M lineup? And why should they come up with an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor? Wouldn’t even further fragment their offering?

However, the EOS R with with a crop sensor gets shifted fro year to year. It’s now rumored for 2021 but I bet in 8 or 10 months it will be rumored for 2022. I migth be wrong but I call the EOS-R-with-APS-C nothing but a fantasy (or bs, your mileage may vary). If someone has a compelling argument for such a camera, I’m listening.
