Canon EOS Rs Rumor: Announcement Date Gets Another Mention

Canon EOS Rs Rumor

Here is a Canon EOS Rs rumor. The announcement date of the high resolution Canon EOS R we leaked in the past got another mention on the Internet.

Please note that the upcoming high resolution EOS R model has been dubbed “EOS Rs” by the Internet community and that it is not an official Canon moniker.

However, latest murmurings about the Canon EOS Rs suggest it will be announced ahead of CP+, starting at the end of February, and that fits perfectly with the already rumored announcement date. Along with the high resolution EOS Rs, Canon might also announce two new, possibly budget-oriented RF mount lenses.

It seems that the sensor resolution we leaked back in April is still the rumored resolution. We were told the EOS Rs will feature 75MP (but 80MP have also been rumored). So far we do not have really reliable intel about the the EOS Rs, all we know is what is rumored (take with a grain of salt):

  • 75mp full-frame CMOS
  • Sensor “focused on the dynamic range”
  • Frames per second “… Sounded similar to the EOS R”
  • DIGIC 9
  • Dual Card Slots
  • Joystick the same as the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Larger and higher resolution EVF than the EOS R
  • Fully articulating LCD screen
  • Fully weather-sealed
  • Similar ergonomics as the EOS R (No touch bar)

The list originates from a source who claims to have shot a prototype of the EOS Rs.

Stay tuned, the next Canon EOS Rs rumor will come soon, and also expect first reliable leaks in the next weeks.

Unreleased Canon Lens Appears At Certification Authority (RF mount?)

Top 10 Cameras Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R Pro Eos R Canon Lens Explorers Of Light

According to Nokishita, a Canon lens for a ILC has been registered at a Russian certification authority. The SKU of the lens is 4111C005AA (image below). Since when are lenses registered at certification authorities?

We think this most likely refers to an upcoming RF lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. Or does it refer to the already released RF 85mm f/1.2L DS, mentioned in the image above? Which one we do not know for the time being. Recent rumours suggested Canon is set to release some consumer oriented lenses for the EOS R. If true, this lens might be among them.

Among the next Canon releases we expect the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors), already announced development-wise but still shrouded in mystery. The EOS-1D X Mark III is expected for February 2020. There is still uncertainty about the sensor resolution. While both 20MP and 24MP are rumored, we think the latter is more likely.

Canon might also release up to three EOS R bodies in 2020. One will be the high resolution EOS R, also expected for February 202, the other one might be the pro-oriented EOS R, though this one might well slip into 2021. And then there might be the EOS R Mark II in 2020. One of these upcoming EOS R bodies is rumoured to have a hybrid EF/RF mount. Time will tell.

One of the hottest speculation about upcoming Canon cameras concern IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation). Some rumors suggest it will be featured on the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. We think this is unlikely. There is no reason to doubt that Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that a Canon exec told the world about. But it’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless camera in the EOS R lineup, and not the flagship DSLR.

Stay tuned for more.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumor: Announcement Gets Closer As Latest Product List Gets Updated

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Rumor

A new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor confirms the previously suggested release date. Canon already announced the development of the EOS 1D Mark III but did not reveal all specifications or the release date.

According to Nokishita the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and the WFT-E9 wireless file transmitter are now listed on Canon’s latest product list.

The release of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is expected around the beginning of February 2020, and there are no doubts left about that.  An authoritative source confirmed it will be at the beginning of 2020, February is the natural choice (CP+ happens). General availability should be ready in April 2020.

Below is the list of what we know for sure so far about the EOS 1D X Mark III:

  • All-new CMOS sensor
  • Dual-pixel 525-point CMOS AF with 90/100% coverage horizontally and vertically
  • New Digic Processor
  • 10-bit HEIF file capture (in addition to JPEG and Raw)
  • Max 16fps capture via viewfinder, and 20fps in live view (with AF)
  • Dual CF Express card slots
  • 10-bit, 4:2:2 4K/60 video with C-Log
  • Backlit buttons

There is still uncertainty about the sensor resolution. While both 20MP and 24MP are rumored, we think the latter is more likely. Another persistent rumor says IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) will be featured in the EOS 1D X Mark III. We have no doubts that Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that another Canon exec told the world about. But it’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless, and not the flagship DSLR.

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor, February 2020 Announcement Mentioned Again (and an image)

Canon Eos 1d X Mark Iii Rumor

Here is a new Canon EOS 1D X Mark III rumor. Another mention of a possible announcement in February 2020 emerged from the Internet. Canon already announced the development of the EOS 1D Mark III but did not reveal all specifications or the release date..

There are no real doubts left about the announcement of the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III. An authoritative source confirmed it will be at the beginning of 2020, February is the natural choice (CP+ happens).

An image (on top) said to show the upcoming Canon EOS 1D X Mark III was posted by Canon Rumors. It’s a low resolution image. The question is: is this the EOS 1D X Mark III? It doesn’t look like.

The image on top may refer to:

  • a prototype of the EOS 1D X Mark III (for instance unpainted or unfinished on the outside)
  • a 1D X Mark III with a different look (will Canon really offer a “vintage” 1D X Mark III?)
  • A faked image and hence not a 1D X Mark III

We still haven’t made up our minds, though most think it’s a prototype of the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III. What do you think?

Below is the list of what we know for sure about the EOS 1D X Mark III:

  • All-new CMOS sensor
  • Dual-pixel 525-point CMOS AF with 90/100% coverage horizontally and vertically
  • New Digic Processor
  • 10-bit HEIF file capture (in addition to JPEG and Raw)

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor: 4K With No Crop And DPAF, And Maybe 6K Video Too

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras Big Game

A new Canon EOS 1D X Mark III rumor emerged from the Internet.

Canon already announced the development of the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III but did not reveal all the features (as sensor resolution, for instance). No surprise we continue to get bits of Canon EOS 1D X Mark III rumor.

The Canon EOS 1D X Mark III (all rumors) is said to record 4K video without crop and with Dual Pixel AF, which is to expect from Canon’s next flagship DSLR. The other bit suggests Canon might feature 5.9K video on the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III, and that this decision is still not definitive. In other words: Canon execs are still discussing if they should feature 6K video from the beginning or maybe deliver it later via firmware (and maybe for a price). In any case, while 4K video is a sure thing I’d not bet on 5.9K. I mean, the EOS M6 Mark II has uncropped 4K video so why should the EOS 1D X Mark III not have it?

An authoritative source confirmed the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III will be released at the beginning of 2020, February being a good candidate. This is what we know for sure so far about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors):

  • All-new CMOS sensor
  • Dual-pixel 525-point CMOS AF with 90/100% coverage horizontally and vertically
  • New Digic Processor
  • 10-bit HEIF file capture (in addition to JPEG and Raw)
  • Max 16fps capture via viewfinder, and 20fps in live view (with AF)
  • Dual CF Express card slots
  • 10-bit, 4:2:2 4K/60 video with C-Log
  • Backlit buttons

We still have no reliable information about the sensor resolution. While both 20MP and 24MP are rumored, we think the latter is more likely.

Some sources claim IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) will be featured on the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III. We think this is highly unlikely. There is no reason to doubt that Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that another Canon exec told the world about. But it’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless, and not the flagship DSLR.

We are sure the next Canon EOS 1D X Mark III rumor will surface soon. Stay tuned. In the meantime there is an interview with the mastermind behind the EOS-1D X series to read.

Professional Canon EOS R With Hybrid EF/RF Mount Might Have A Moving Sensor

Professional Canon EOS R Mirrorless

We got an update to the rumor suggesting Canon is working on a professional Canon EOS R body with a lens mount that can fit both EF and RF lenses.

This professional Canon EOS R body is said to play in the same league as the EOS-1D X series, i.e. the most professional tier in Canon’s gear lineup. This makes more sense than you might think at first glance. Given how committed Canon is to the EOS R system, an EOS R body with hybrid lens mount isn’t that unlikely in our opinion. And even if it is an engineering challenge, and for sure it is, Canon has the means and skills to build it.

We have been told (thanks) that the professional EOS R body with hybrid EF/RF mount will have a moving sensor, i.e. a sensor mounted on a mechanical system that can move the sensor forth and back to suit the different flange distance of EF and RF lenses (the distance between the lens mounted on the camera body and the camera’s image sensor).

We guess a moving sensor is the most feasible engineering approach to build a camera with hybrid EF/RF lens mount. Other technical solutions appear to be more difficult to realize. Given that you need to change the distance between the lens and the image sensor, what else could you do? Maybe moving the lens mount back and forth from the camera body? Doesn’t seem to us to be the better approach. Other feasible engineering approaches? Can’t think of any. I’m looking forward to spot a Canon patent application for a moving sensor.

What do you think?
