Latest Canon Rumors: XF505 Video Camera And New Cinema Lenses, First For RF Mount

Canon Rumors

Here are the some new Canon rumors for the video and Cinema side of things.

The Canon rumors suggest Canon will announce some new video gear for NAB 2021. Among this gear is the Canon XF505, a run-and-gun camcorder likely similar to yet more feature packed than the Canon XF405. A few rumored specifications made it to the world:

Canon XF505 Specifications:

  • Same 1″ sensor as the XF705
  • 12G-SDI output and SD cards
  • An integrated zoom lens with 15x zoom
  • BP-A batteries

Next, Canon is likely to release also a bunch of new Cinema lenses, and among them the first for the RF mount. The rumor suggests Canon is set to replace the current Compact CINE-ZOOMs with new models that cover the Super35 and the full-frame imaging sensors. This is achieved by changing the rear group of optical elements. PL and EF mount will be available as usual. The first Cinema lens for the RF mount might be a prime lens. No more to get here for the time being.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay safe, stay tuned.

There are many factors that could delay these announcements, the global pandemic and related supply chain shortages or other production issues in first place.

Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II Might Be Close To Release (April 2021)

Cinema EOS C200

Canon might soon release the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II. April 2021 is the suggested date.

Canon Rumors reports that the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II has these specifications:

  • Same sensor as the Cinema EOS C300 Mark III
  • RAW Recording
  • 4:2:2 10-bit
  • 4K 60P
  • 2K 120P
  • More a unibody design than the modular design of the C300 Mark III

NAB 2021 happens in April 2021, so it seems a good date to release the replacement for the Canon EOS C200.
