Canon EOS 90D to be announced before end of 2018?

EOS 80D

After a while, we got a new Canon EOS 90D rumor.

Latest has it that the EOS 90D is the next DSLRs Canon is set to announce, and that this may well happen before the end of 2018.

We had contrasting rumors in the past, suggesting a 2018 announcement first and a 2019 announcement after that.

If you have a look at Wikipedia, you’ll see that the interval between Canon xxD models has been around 3 years for the latest models.

  • Canon EOS 40D – August 2007
  • Canon EOS 50D – October 2008
  • Canon EOS 60D – August 2010
  • Canon EOS 70D – July 2013
  • Canon EOS 80D – February 2016

Given the fast pace the industry is evolving, I wouldn’t be surprised if Canon decides to put the EOS 90D (all rumors) on market before the next big holiday shopping season. The Canon EOS 80D was and still is highly popular and having a replacement ready for Christmas wouldn’t hurt Canon.

However, there other candidate DSLRs for an announcement in 2018, who may not be likely but still possible.

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. Personally, I’m starting to think this will be a 2019 affair.

Though less likely than the ones above, 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.

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’s full-frame mirrorless camera might be called M3 and sell for $3500, T. Northrup predicts

canon

Tony & Chelsea Northrup shared their predictions for cameras that will or might be announced in 2018.

Among other stuff, he makes some speculations on how Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera might be shaped. These are the cameras discussed in the video: Canon EOS 5DS R Mark II, Canon EOS 7D Mark III, Canon EOS 90D, Canon EOS M3, Nikon D650, Nikon D850A, Nikon M700, Sony a5200, Sony a7 III, Sony a7S III, Fujifilm X-H1, Pentax K-1 II, Panasonic GH5-S, Olympus E-M5 Mk III.

No Canon EOS 90D coming in 2018? [CW2]

Eos 90d

We got a Canon EOS 90D rumor (thanks).

Unfortunately, we did not get hints about the specifications. The source suggests Canon might not announce the replacement for the Canon EOS 80D in 2018. The Canon 90D will be a 2019 affair, apparently.

This contrasts with another early EOS 90D rumor, which surfaced back in July 2017 and was suggesting a 2018 announcement. However, I had a quick look at Wikipedia to check when the previous models of the EOS xxD series have been announced. Let’s have a look before going on.

  • Canon EOS 40D – August 2007
  • Canon EOS 50D – October 2008
  • Canon EOS 60D – August 2010
  • Canon EOS 70D – July 2013
  • Canon EOS 80D – February 2016

As you can see, intervals between an EOS xxD model and its replacement were getting longer with recent models. It was two year between the EOS 50D and the EOS 60D, and it’s three years since the EOS 60D, before the EOS 70D and EOS 80D were announced. A three years interval before we see the EOS 90D fits in this pattern. I rate it CW2 because it comes from a new source (albeit with good points).

We can only guess what the EOS 90D will have on board. We got hints for a 28MP sensor on the EOS 7D Mark III. Maybe the same sensor is going to be featured also on the EOS 90D.

Stay tuned.

New Canon gear has been registered at certification authority (EOS 90D or 5Ds Mark II too?)

canon rumors

Nokishita posted a list of yet unannounced Canon gear that has been registered at certification authorities, and one of the cameras could point to the EOS 90D or EOS 5Ds R Mark II.

At the bottom at the list there is a camera that could easily be Canon’s modular Multi-Purpose Camera MM100-WS, of which the company recently announced the development. The second camera in the list (D126741) cold be the replacement for the EOS 80D or EOS 5Ds, for the reason that no Bluetooth module is present which leads to the assumption that no GPS is featured. Actually the only Canon DSLRs eligible for replacement that to not have GPS are the EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds. While registrations at certification authorities usually mean an announcement isn’t far away, I doubt Canon will announce the EOS 90D in 2017. Both the EOS 90D and the replacement for the EOS 5Ds will be a 2018 affair.

In the list we also find the PowerShot G1 X Mark III (which I do not longer think will be be announced in September 2017), another PowerShot camera, and the Rebel T7.

No one knows the exact release date for the Canon EOS 90D and 7D Mark III but they try

canon rumors

Pointless rumors surfaced on the web. Announcement dates for the Canon EOS 90D and EOS 7D Mark III are suggested.

The first half of 2018 is when Canon is said to announce the 90D and 7D3.

It’s way too early for a reliable rumor about the announcement for these cameras. Pointing to CP+ for the announcement of at least one of these DSLRs makes sense but still is pure speculation.

We knew the announcement date of the EOS 6D Mark II only a few weeks before it happened, after many supposed announcement dates that all were wrong. The approximately one dozen of wrong announcement dates for the 6D2 all came from the same source that’s now suggesting the dates for the EOS 90D and 7D Mark III.

Enjoy the camera you have and don’t waste time with rumors.
