EOS 80d Eos M5

A new report on the series of rumor outlets says that Canon is about to replace a mid-level DSLR. The same report also mentions what we are mentioning since a while now, that the replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II could be one camera for both.

The report also claims what we’ve already posted many times, that the replacement for the EOS M5 will be announced within 2019.

Canon EOS R High Resolution Camera Undergoing Field Testing [CW3]

Canon Eos R

We’re told that the next Canon EOS R camera is already field tested by a small group of selected photographers.

The next Canon EOS R camera will have a high resolution sensor. We expect Canon to announced the high resolution EOS R somewhen in Fall 2019. We still have no reliable information about the resolution but you can expect a sensor between 50MP and 70MP.

2020 is an Olympic year and our source suggests that Canon is looking to make a splash with their upcoming high resolution EOS R model. This leaves us somewhat puzzled since we do not believe professional photographers will embrace a mirrorless camera system for their work. Not yet. On the other hand, the Olympics might be a good stage to showcase a professional, high resolution mirrorless camera, especially if it introduces some cool and new technology. I guess it mainly depends on what features Canon will pack into their next full frame mirrorless camera.

A high resolution EOS R model is coming, that seems quite likely now.

Stay tuned.

This Is The Canon Rebel SL3 (Specifications and Leaked Images)

Rebel SL3

Canon really managed to add some more confusion to their weird geo-dependent naming scheme. While it’s Rebel SL3 in the USA, the same camera is named EOS 200D Mark II in Southeast Asia (EOS 200D in Asia?), Kiss X10 in Japan, and EOS 250D in Europe. I suggest they fire someone in the marketing department. Release date is expected for April 25, 2019.
