We didn’t get the Canon EOS R3, despite all the rumors pointing to an imminent announcement. But despair not: here is a Canon EOS R5c rumor for you.
The EOS R5c would be the cinema/movie making version of the EOS R5. Rumor-wise the EOS R5c got little attention. Canon Rumors reports with confidence that the EOS R5c might get announced in Q1 2022. The rumor also suggests that the announcement was postponed after a scheduled October 2021 release.
While getting most of the features of the Canon EOS R5, the EOS R5c might also sport:
slightly different form factor
more codecs for video recording
full-size HDMI port.
Still a long time to go for an announcement in Q1 2022. Stay tuned.
We were expecting the Canon EOS R3 announcement this week. It didn’t happen. The reason might be a production issue.
It seems that the Olympics do not play a role in the Canon EOS R3 announcement. Also, it is not sure that the EOS R3 was delayed. It might well be that Canon didn’t plan to release it in June 2021. If there was a delay, Canon Rumors suspects it’s due to production issues. This most likely means supply chain issues. There is a chip shortage going on. It’s real and it is reported even on Wikipedia (see here too for more information).
Hard to say if the chip shortage is really affecting Canon’s production chain. It’s entirely possible, though.
