Canon released a press release where the company states they will livestream their next press conference, instead of holding it as usual. Another consequence of the global virus outbreak.
Although some people is suggesting the EOS R5 could be announced at this date, it’s very unlikely. In the press release Canon mentions “broadcast and cinema products” to tackle “the current and growing needs of the respective industries such as 4K UHD and HDR, as well as evolving technologies“. So, it’s likely a new Canon Cinema camera is coming, most probably the EOS C300 Mark III.
