Canon Cinema EOS C200 to be announced next month, featuring 4K? [CW2]

EOS C100 Mark II

Is Canon going to announce the Canon Cinema EOS C200 next month? That’s what a new rumor suggests.

The Canon Cinema EOS C200 may also feature 4K video. No specifications so far. It’s not clear if the EOS C200 will replace the EOS C100, or not. We heard about an EOS C100 replacement last year, and it was suggested it may have 4K.

I’m a bit puzzled by this rumor. First. I wonder why the EOS C200 wasn’t announced at NAB, which would have been the right stage for this camera announcement. Second, the EOS 6D Mark II may be announced in JulyI’m not sure Canon is going to announce to major camera upgrades one after the other in such a short time frame.

Stay tuned.
