Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Nokishita posted some more information about an unreleased Canon camera that has been registered at a wireless certification authority.

The camera identified as “DS126721″ may indeed be Canon’s highly anticipated full frame mirrorless camera.

What do we know about DS126721?

  • Interchangeable lens camera (either DSLRS or full frame mirrorless)
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Battery: DC 7.2 V, 1800mAh
  • Charger: Input AC 100 – 240V (50/60Hz), Output DC 8.4V 1.2A
  • Same radio parts as EOS M50 (WM 600)

There have been other unreleased Canon cameras leaking through certification authorities. Among them, most likely the EOS 7D Mark III, EOS 90D, and EOS M5 Mark II.

It’s getting hot and hotter, stay tuned!

More about upcoming Canon cameras leaking through certification authorities (EOS 7D Mark III & 90D?)

canon rumors canon full frame mirrorlessNokishita posted some more bits about yet unreleased Canon gear. The intel leaked though a wireless certification authority, so the information is spare. However, we can make some deductions based on the batteries mentioned in the leak.

The registered Canon cameras are

  • “DS126721”, no information for this one
  • “K436” and “K437”, appear to be DSLRs
  • “K424”, “K433” and “EC 811” appear to be mirrorless cameras

According to the used batteries, K436 seems to be an entry-level camera (same battery as EOS 77D), K437 may be either an xD or an xxD camera (same battery as EOS 5D Mark IV, that’s the LP-E6N, used on both line-ups).

Which upcoming cameras might be mentioned in the leak? K427 may point to both the EOS 7D Mark III and the EOS 90D, cameras that could be announced in Q1 2019. An announcement before Photokina 2018 (September 2018) is also possible.

Among the three mirrorless cameras, there might obviously be the highly anticipated Canon full frame mirrorless camera. This camera is expected to be announced between Q4 2018 and Q1 2019, though, according to our sources, a Q1 2019 announcement appears to be more likely. We expect Canon to announce the Canon EOS M5 Mark II in the near future, so this one may also be in the list.

Stay tuned.

Major Canon product announcement coming September 2018?

Canon Rumorscanon rumors

We have been told (thanks) that Canon is set to announce something important in September 2018.

Now, what could this be? There are some candidates. First, we have the long rumored full frame mirrorless camera, which is alternatively rumored to be announced towards the end of 2018 (think Photokina), or in Q1 2019 (think Photokina again).

Next, there is the Canon EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors). The latest bit we got about the EOS 7D Mark III was saying we should expect an announcement between September 2018 and May 2019. Not very a exciting hint, to be honest.

There is also the Canon EOS 90D (all rumors), which I expected to be announced somewhen between Q4 2018 or Q1/Q2 2019.

Finally, it could also be the Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II (all rumors) that’s going to be announced in September 2018. Here too there have been contradicting suggestions about the announcement.

If our source is right and Canon is set for an “important, major announcement” in September 2018, I can’t see other candidates, and I don’t think it may be about a new lens.

What do you think, did I miss something? Sound off in the comment section.

Canon EOS 7D Mark III to announced between Photokina 2018 and Photokina 2019?

Eos 7d Mark Iii

Call it “rumor” but to me it looks we should call this “common sense”. We have been told (thanks) that Canon will announce the replacement for the glorious EOS 7D Mark II somewhen between Photokina 2018 (September) and Photokina 2019 (May).

There is nothing really surprising here. After a series of rumors that alternatively suggested the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019 as the most likely date for the EOS 7D Mark III announcement, this rumor isn’t telling us anything new. That Canon will announce the EOS 7D Mark III somewhen between September 2018 and May 2019 is very much just common sense.

It’s since a few years that Canon has become very secretive about their products. Reliable leaks are rare, and usually surface only a few weeks ahead of the announcement. That’s to say that we still know nothing about the EOS 7D Mark III (besides some obvious things like tiltable screen). Over the last two years we got the following bits:

  • newly developed 28MP sensor, said to introduce a new Canon APS-C sensor generation (we leaked this first)
  • more video-oriented
  • some sort of 4K video (though no details, we leaked this first)
  • tiltable touch-screen
  • new generation of Dual Pixel AF
  • more upscale than the EOS 7D Mark II
  • richer feature set compared to the 7D Mark II
  • same introductory price as the EOS 7D Mark II

So far there is only one hint that Canon may indeed announced the EOS 7D Mark III for Photokina 2018: it seems major retailers are clearing stocks of the EOS 7D Mark II.

Stay tuned.

 

Has the Canon EOS 7D Mark II reached End of Life, replacement on the horizon?

Canon EOS 7D Mark III

In the last weeks we got some hints that the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is reaching its end of life, i.e. it may soon be discontinued.

Mails in my inbox, coming from major, authorised US retailers, with headlines like “Want a Canon EOS 7D Mark II? Get it while you can!” or “grab it!” may be a hint that the glorious EOS 7D Mark II is indeed about to be discontinued. Moreover, we got word from readers that smaller retailers in Europe appear to clear stock of the EOS 7D Mark II.

Does this mean the Canon EOS 7D Mark III will be announced in 2018? It may. We have always been told that Canon would announce the EOS 7D Mark III in 2018, with a first batch of rumors stating it would happen before Summer 2018, and then some other rumors suggesting the EOS 7D Mark III may be announced towards Q4 2018.

Specification-wise we still know very little about the successor of the highly popular EOS 7D Mark II. Please note that there are two specification lists making the rounds on the web. One which originates from us, another which does not. Although this specification list was attributed to us, it didn’t come from us.

The bits we got over the last months:

  • newly developed 28MP sensor, said to introduce a new Canon APS-C sensor generation (we leaked this first)
  • more video-oriented
  • some sort of 4K video (though no details, we leaked this first)
  • tiltable touch-screen
  • new generation of Dual Pixel AF
  • more upscale than the EOS 7D Mark II
  • richer feature set compared to the 7D Mark II
  • same introductory price as the EOS 7D Mark II

All Canon EOS 7D Mark III rumors are listed here.

Canon EOS 7D Mark III pushed later into 2018? Tell us what you think

Eos 7d Mark Iii

We were fearing such a tip. Now it’s here.

We anticipated that Canon might announce the EOS 7D Mark III before Summer 2018. We got this from a good source. However, another source we worked with in the past tipped us that the EOS 7D Mark III might be a late 2018 affair, possibly slipping into 2019.

Specification-wise we still know very little about the successor of the highly popular EOS 7D Mark II (price & specs). Please note that there are two specification lists making the rounds on the web. One which originates from us, another which does not. Although this specification list was attributed to us, it has nothing to do with us.

The bits we got over the last months:

  • newly developed 28MP sensor, said to introduce a new Canon APS-C sensor generation (we leaked this first)
  • more video-oriented
  • some sort of 4K video (though no details, we leaked this first)
  • tiltable touch-screen
  • new generation of Dual Pixel AF
  • more upscale than the EOS 7D Mark II
  • richer feature set compared to the 7D Mark II
  • same introductory price as the EOS 7D Mark II

No big surprises here. The list above has a lot of obvious stuff (tiltable screen, richer feature set etc) and/or stuff we hear rumored for any major Canon DSLR iteration. I just hope it’s true the EOS 7D Mark III will have the same introductory price as its predecessor. Also, 4K video isn’t a real surprise: that the EOS 7D Mark III will have 4K is just common sense. I guess not even Canon could afford to not feature 4K on their next APS-C flagship.

No one so far has any reliable specifications for the EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors). If the suggested announcement timeframe before Summer 2018 is to be believed, we will soon start to see leaked specifications, and when the announcement gets closer also some pictures of the EOS 7D Mark III.

If the previous rumor is not reliable (i.e. no announcement before Summer 2018), all you’ll see will be a lot of fake rumors and the first serious stuff not before September or October 2018. Also note, that Canon has become very secretive in the last years and reliable rumors leak during the very last weeks before an announcement, and almost entirely come from Japanese sites. Something, certain people do not want you to know.

Stay tuned.
