Nokishita spotted another yet unreleased Canon camera registered at a wireless certification authority.
The camera’s denomination is “DS126821“, and according to the certification data it uses the Canon LP-E17 battery and has Bluetooth 4.2.
The Canon LP-E17 battery is used on the EOS M3, EOS M5, EOS M6, Rebel SL2, Rebel T6s, Rebel T6i, Rebel T7i, and EOS 77D. The camera DS126821 could refer either to a new EOS M model or a new Rebel. We think it’s likely it refers to the Canon EOS M5 Mark II.
A few weeks ago a rumor surfaced suggesting Canon is set to release two new EOS M cameras. The two rumored EOS M cameras are said to have these specifications:
Canon EOS M50 Mark II / EOS M60
32.5mp APS-C CMOS sensor

Might DS126821 be one of these unreleased Canon camera?. Stay tuned.
A pro EOS R model with a hybrid EF/RF lens mount is rumored over the web.
It’s suggested the upcoming pro EOS R, i.e. a Canon EOS R body aimed a photography professionals and on the same tier as the EOS-1D X lineup, might be able to natively mount both RF and EF mount lenses.
Being able to mount both EF and RF mount lenses without using an adapter would be a killer feature. It’s not surprising it is rumored for the fabled EOS-1D X-like professional EOS R that might be announced next year, or in 2021 (all rumors).
As weird as this rumor may sound we give it some credit. While technically complex to implement it is surely not impossible, and we know Canon has the know how and the skills to do it. On other words: it’s feasible for Canon.
What do you think, is this rumor plausible? All Canon rumors are listed here.
BCN rankings for the market figures 2019 in Japan are out. If there was a full frame war, there is only one winner.
If you look at the image on top you can clearly see that only one manufacturer managed to increase unit and value sales for compact cameras, APS-C cameras, and full frame cameras. Oh, it’s Sony.
Canon and Nikon sale figures are rather bad with the exception of the Canon’s full frame unit sales (up 6%, but value sales down 7%). Sony is now the leader in full frame camera sales (in Japan, but we can assume it reflects the global trend). No more full frame war.
If you wonder how big the share of full frame cameras is compared to other systems, have a look at the image below. You’ll see it’s much less than you might have thought (these are figures for the Japanese market).
