Just a friendly reminder of the gear we expect Canon to announce on February 8,…
We got some bits about the Canon EOS 7D Mark III, EOS Canon EOS 80D and EOS M5 Mark II from a new source.
With reference to the Canon cameras leaked through a wireless certification authority, we have been told that
- K437 is the EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors)
- K436 is the EOS 80D Mark II (apparently, not EOS 90D, all rumors)
- EC811 is the EOS M5 Mark II (all rumors)
All have a new 28MP Canon APS-C sensor without AA filter (which finds us a bit skeptical) and a DIGIC 8 processor. And they are said to be able to shot 4K video at 30fps with Dual Pixel AF.
The EOS 80D Mark II is said to have dedicated headphone and mic ports. Btw, naming the EOS 80D replacement EOS 80D Mark II makes sense. They may have room for an EOS 90D but not for an EOS 100D, since this one already exists (Canon Rebel SL1 in the US). In other words: there is just one moniker left for the xxD line-up. Probably better to start marking the series.
Update: please note that K436 is said to use the same battery as the Canon EOS 77D, which is an entry level DSLR. Either the information about the battery is wrong, or the K436 is not the replacement for the EOS 80D. A Canon EOS 80D Mark II with a downsized battery is very unlikely.
The EOS 7D Mark III ist said to feature dual DIGIC 8 processors, GPS, and dual storage slots.
The EOS M5 Mark II ist said to feature a single DIGIC 8 CPU, and GPS.
The same source claims that there is one prototype of Canon’s full frame mirorless camera (all rumors) that sports an EF mount, and IBIS.
Take all with a grain of salt. We rate the rumor CW2
/CW3. If it wasn’t for the “APS-C sensor without AA filter” we would have give a higher rating. But three Canon APS-C DSLRs without AA filter is a bit of a stretch.
More to come…
