What To Expect Next From Canon (Cinema, XC & XF cams, RF lenses, EOS M)

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii

We can expect some more gear announcement by Canon within 2020.

It seems two different timeframes are to expect for announcements, one in August/September and another one towards November and December. However, to us it seems weird that Canon might announce gear in December, and August is almost over (but still rumored for announcements).

The gear Canon might announce:

As we said, the timeframe for all these announcements seems to be a bit tight but everything is still possible.

Stay tuned.

C300 Mark Iii Canon Firmware Updates 8k Cameras

Canon might well be set to announce and release two new 8K-capable EOS Cinema cameras next year.

The first of these 8K Cinema cameras will be the next flagship, boosting some pro-oriented features.

The other one will be a modular and more similar to the Cinema EOS C300 Mark III and Cinema EOS C500 Mark II cameras.

No price nor specifications so far. We assume that Canon might announce these cameras around April 2021, i.e. when NAB 2021 is scheduled.

Stay tuned.
