A new rumor about the Canon EOS R5 Mark II from what appears to be a new, recently surfaced rumor outlet. We never heard from these guys and do not know who they are. That’s to say that you should apply the proverbial truckload of salt. Most rumors are nothing but speculations or educated guesses.
Latest has it that the Canon EOS R5 Mark II might feature a 60MP imaging sensor. The current model, the EOS R5, already sports a 45MP sensor. The bump to 60MP wouldn’t be that unrealistic. Quoting the source:
Through some industry people, we have found out that it is very likely that the EOS R5 Mark II will get a resolution bump to 60mp, which seems to be a resolution embraced by other brands already. Reports suggest that the camera is already in the hands of the usual early testers as Canon works to refine the camera.
The same sources said that the R52 will also have the capability of shooting 8K/60P. We do not know if the increased framerate for 8K/60P will be internal RAW. External recording capabilities are not yet known.
But, hey!, what about the all-destroying overheating? Not surprisingly, “Canon has developed better cooling for the successor [the EOS R5]”. Of course they did.
The announcement date is now rumored to be around the first half of 2024. All Canon EOS R5 Mark II rumors are listed here.
Forget rumors, enjoy life and snap pictures.
