Next Canon EOS M Camera(s) Coming In August 2019 (EOS M500)?

Eos M5

A followup to the rumor of upcoming EOS M cameras replacements surfaced over the web.

It’s suggested Canon might announce a replacement at least for the Canon EOS M5, while the EOS M6 seems not to be scheduled for replacement. Moreover, Canon might announce an EOS M model that’s below the EOS M50, the Canon EOS M500. Two new EF-M lenses might also be announced.

Take this with a grain of salt, and stay tuned.

Metabones Announced EF to EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 7.1x

Speed Booster

Metabones announced a new Speed Booster (EF to EF-M mount). Metabones EF-EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x is available right now for $479.

Press release:

Metabones® Introduces EF to EOS M (EF-EFM Mount) Speed Booster® ULTRA 0.71x

Vancouver, Canada, May 2, 2019 – Metabones introduces the latest member of its award-winning Speed Booster family of DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) to mirrorless lens mount adapters, EF-EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x. Full-frame Canon EF-mount lenses are now one stop faster, 0.71x wider and with increased MFT (note 1) on Canon EOS M cameras. The 4k/UHD video crop on EOS M50 can also be mitigated with third-party APS-C lenses using this Metabones Speed Booster. Some Canon EF-S lenses may be modified to fit on the Speed Booster but Metabones cannot be held liable for any issues arising from modifications. Using APS-C lenses with Speed Booster for still photography or full HD videography may result in vignetting.

Ever since the first Speed Booster was introduced, there have been DIY attempts to modify it to fit EOS M cameras. The turnkey solution Metabones now offers adds a number of refinements:

  • The optical housing is redesigned for perfect fit on EOS M.
  • The EXIF metadata is changed to reflect the faster aperture (note 2) and shorter focal length.
  •  The autofocus speed of the lens is adjusted and optimized for the change in focal length and aperture to ensure the best performance. This is especially important for dual-pixel autofocus (DPAF) in video mode.
  • A ‘chip’ mode is added so that the user may store the metadata of a fully mechanical manual lens in the adapter.
  • A LED indicates operational status of the Speed Booster.

Since both the lens and the camera speak the same protocol most features are supported with the exception of lens aberration correction, which is automatically turned off.

Canon Rebel SL3 Review (excellent live view system, Photography Blog)

Canon Rebel SL3

Canon Rebel SL3 at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • UHD 4K Video and 4K Time-Lapse Movie
  • 9-Point AF System; Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Photography Blog posted their full review of the new Canon Rebel SL3, aka EOS 250D aka EOS 200D Mark II aka Kiss X10.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS 250D / Rebel SL3 is a rather modest upgrade of the 2-year-old Canon EOS 200D / Rebel SL2, principally adding 4K video recording, a much-improved Live View experience and longer battery life to justify its introduction.

[…]

Canon have been much more successful in improving the EOS 250D’s live view mode, which does benefit from using the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. Being able to compose using the vari-angle touchscreen and choose from one of the 3,975 AF points, complete with face/eye detection, is a real advantage, making the EOS 250D one of the best DSLRs around in terms of its live view mode.

On the other hand, having such an excellent live view system does highlight the camera’s rather basic optical viewfinder, which still relies on a rudimentary 9-point AF system and doesn’t offer the same rich experience as a true mirrorless camera. The headline grabbing battery life of over 1,000 shots also relies on using the optical viewfinder, rather than the much better live view mode.

More Information on Unreleased Canon Camera (EOS 90D/EOS 7D Mark III?)

Eos 7d Mark Iii

Nokishita spotted a yet unreleased Canon camera registered at a wireless certification authority, the registration number is DS126801.

DS126801 seems to have WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and the larger LP-E6N battery. This battery is used on the EOS 80D, EOS 7D Mark II, and the EOS R.

According to Nokishita, the camera named DS126801 is the same described as K437 in the programming code of the latest EOS Utility. Reading the code you learn that DS126801/K437 has a resolution of 6940×4640, which is approximately 32MP.

Is this the resolution of the next Canon APS-C camera?

K437 already leaked in June 2018, and a bit later we got a tip saying it could be the EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors) or EOS 90D. We had different rumors about the sensor resolution of K437, but a resolution of 6940×4640. i.e. 32MP leaked already in September 2018, so this new post by Nokishita is more a confirmation than a new rumor. Also note that recent rumors we got suggest Canon might replace both the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II with one new camera.

So, is this the replacement for the EOS 80D and/or the EOS 7D Mark II? It’s possible. It’s less likely that K437 points to a new EOS R model or a full frame DSLR. If this is going to be a new Canon APS-C flagship then it gets a big resolution bump from the 24MP resolution of current Canon APS-C DSLRs.

Stay tuned.
