Canon Mirrorless Related Announcement on September 4/5, 2018?

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

We have been told (thanks) that Canon may stage a mirrorless-related announcement on September 4 or 5, 2018. This is partially in contrast with a previous rumor which stated that a major Canon announcement would happen in the second week of September 2018. Partially, because there might be different interpretations on what “second week” means, and some hints unfortunately get lost in translation.

At the time being we do not know if the announcement is about the replacement for the Canon EOS M5 (rumored to be the EOS M5 Mark II), or if it is about the so much emotionally anticipated Canon full frame mirrorless camera (all rumors).

As most of you likely know, Nikon has already stated very officially (and loud) that they will announce something evolutionary, and clearly based on a full frame mirrorless design. So, it’s just straight forward to expect the market leader, that’s Canon, to follow soon.

What do we know? Canon will announce new gear ahead of Photokina 2018, that’s sure. On top of the probability ranking you’ll find the EOS M5 Mark II, a 32-35mm f/1.4 or f/1.8 lens for the EOS M system, the Canon full frame mirrorless camera (at least one), and maybe some more gear (lenses?). Please note: at the time being it’s not sure if we will see Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera in 2018 or in Q1 2019.

We didn’t get any new intel about the EOS 90D/EOS 80D Mark II or the EOS 7D Mark III. An announcement in 2018 is still in the realm of possibilities but appears to become more unlikely as time goes by.

What to say? Stay tuned, because the next weeks will tell.

Updated Information about Canon’s unreleased cameras (leaked trough certification authorities)

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Nokishita posted an updated list of unreleased Canon gear along with some speculation about the camera models and announcement date.

According to Nokishita’s list, there are two full frame mirrorless cameras scheduled to be released. At least one of the FF MILC might have 30MP sensor. Some of the information we got last week gets confirmed by Nokishita, in particular the possible announcement dates that have previously been suggested to us.

  • K424 (most likely Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera)
  • Full frame mirrorless camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Not compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • Resolution: 6720 × 4480 (30MP)
  • Announcement in late 2018 to early 2019
  • K433 (one more full frame MILC?)
  • mirrorless camera
  • Probably full frame (not APS-C)
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • Probably released in 2019
  • K436 (may be the Canon EOS 80D replacement)
  • DSLR
  • APS-C sensor
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Battery level indication is displayed in 4 levels (same as 9000D/77D)
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • Probably released in 2019 or later
  • K437 (likely to be the EOS 7D Mark III)
  • Single-lens reflex camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Battery level indicator is displayed in six levels (same as 5D Mark IV etc.)
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • Probably released in 2019 or later
  • EC801 (upcoming PowerShot model, either PowerShot SX740 or PowerShot G7X III)
  • Compact digital camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • EC804 (upcoming PowerShot model, either PowerShot SX740 or PowerShot G7X III)
  • Compact digital camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Powershot G series
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • EC 805 (unknown so far)
  • Compact digital camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function
  • EC 811 (we think this is the EOS M5 Mark II)
  • Mirrorless camera
  • APS-C
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Compatible with smartphone’s Bluetooth remote control function

Announcement dates are still speculation. Canon might announce the highly anticipated full frame mirrorless camera for Photokina 2018 (September) but an announcement in Q1 2019 is also possible. The only camera we are reasonably sure it will be announced for Photokina 2018 is the Canon EOS M5 Mark II.

Canon full frame mirrorless camera possibly identified through certification authority

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.

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.
