No 4K Crop On Future Canon APS-C DSLRs (Canon EOS 90D)?

EOS 80d Canon Eos 90d

Back in February we reported that Canon might replace the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II with one new camera for both lineups. The camera would be the Canon EOS 90D.

Rumors following suggested that the EOS 7D lineup is set to be abandoned by Canon and that instead we might see a mirrorless offering.

Latest rumors address one of the strongest criticism to Canon’s implementation of 4K video on APS-C cameras, i.e. the evil crop factor, stirring heated discussions on the web. It seems the next Canon APS-C DSLR, which most likely will be the EOS 90D, will record 4K video at 32MP and with no significant crop applied.

We expect Canon to announce the EOS 90D in August or September 2019. The rumored EOS 90D specifications are listed here. All EOS 90D rumors are listed here. All Canon rumors are listed here.

Canon EOS 7D Series Reached End of Life And To Be Replaced By Mirrorless Camera?

Eos 7d Mark Ii

We mentioned a few times that Canon might replace both the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II with one camera for both, killing both line-ups in favour of a new camera.

Now a new rumor confirms partially what we reported. The Canon EOS 7D Mark II might be the last of its kind. It’s suggested Canon will replace the EOS 7D Mark II with a mirrorless offering, i.e. an EOS R model with an APS-C sensor. But is an EOS R with crop sensor really something that might happen?

Apparently retailers are worried to lose customers of the highly popular EOS 7D Mark II, especially because these folks are more likely to buy more and more expensive lenses. More than users of Canon Rebels or even the EOS 80D. It seems Canon told these retailers not to worry and that the issue will be addressed.

As for the suggestion that Canon might have an EOS R with APS-C sensor on their agenda, we honestly do not know what to say. It appears to be highly unrealistic in our opinion. Most people we talked to dismissed this possibility. If it is possible, or if it makes sense or is feasible from an engineering point of of view, is beyond our knowledge. Some sites are heavily pushing the idea of an APS-C EOS R, others call it bs.

The RF mount is extremely powerful and for sure Canon hasn’t yet shown all possible benefits and advantages. But an APS-C sensor? We think it is more likely Canon will replace the EOS 7D Mark II with a new DSLR, which will also replace the EOS 80D.

We are pretty confident Canon will announce at least the replacement for the EOS 80D later in 2019. A replacement for the EOS M5 or EOS M6 is also expected this year.

Are These The Canon EOS 90D Specifications?

Eos 90d

A list of suggested specifications of what is said to be the Canon EOS 90D surfaced on the web.

While it’s still not clear if Canon will release one camera to replace both the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II, the list below makes sense in our opinion, especially is you consider it the replacement for the EOS 80D (but seems to make less sense for the EOS 7D Mark III).

  • 32.5mp APS-C DPAF Sensor
  • Dual DIGIC 8
  • Dual SD card slots
  • 10fps still shooting
  • ISO range of 100-51,200
  • 45 AF points (no word on the number of cross-type points)
  • 4K video at 24/25, 30 and 60fps (No word on DPAF in 4K recording)
  • 3.2″ rear articulating LCD
  • Dust and moisture sealing
  • Built-in wifi and Bluetooth
  • $1399 USD price at launch
  • Coming late August 2019

A 32MP sensor is rumored since September 2018, and seems to be entirely plausible for Canon’s next midlevel APS-C DSLR. However, we have some doubts this could be the EOS 7D Mark III but the list seem perfectly fine for the EOS 90D.

Stay tuned.

Canon Ambassador Teases New 30fps Canon DSLR On Social Networks

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

Canon Ambassador and renowned wild life photographer Andy Rouse teased a yet unreleased Canon camera on Twitter and Instagram.

In a post on Twitter he says he is “using some new kit. No questions yet as [he] won’t answer!!!

In another post on Instagram (below) he mentions a camera doing 30fps when he “had to take the motor drive speed down from 30 fps to 5fps as I was taking too many sharp shots“.

What camera is Andy Rouse referring to? If he is alluding to a yet unreleased Canon camera, and we think it’s likely he does, there a few possibilities:

  • It’s the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, already rumored to undergo field testing. Canon Ambassadors are for sure among the people who might test the EOS-1D X Mark III. The EOS-1D X Mark II does 16fps in Live View. Is the replacement almost doubling the fps?
  • It’s the next Canon APS-C flagship, i.e. the replacement for the EOS Canon EOS Canon EOS 80D and/or EOS 7D Mark II (there might be one camera to replace both). But an APS-C DSLR doing 30fps? Seems a bit of a stretch.
  • It’s a new full frame mirrorless camera in the EOS R lineup. A very sports or generally pro oriented EOS R model. Don’t think Canon might already put such a camera on the market. We expect Canon to announce a high resolution EOS R next.
  • It’s totally new camera in a new lineup we never heard anything about. It’s just possible.
  • It’s a camera from another company.

I don’t see other options.

What do you think?

More Information on Unreleased Canon Camera (EOS 90D/EOS 7D Mark III?)

Eos 7d Mark Iii

Nokishita spotted a yet unreleased Canon camera registered at a wireless certification authority, the registration number is DS126801.

DS126801 seems to have WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and the larger LP-E6N battery. This battery is used on the EOS 80D, EOS 7D Mark II, and the EOS R.

According to Nokishita, the camera named DS126801 is the same described as K437 in the programming code of the latest EOS Utility. Reading the code you learn that DS126801/K437 has a resolution of 6940×4640, which is approximately 32MP.

Is this the resolution of the next Canon APS-C camera?

K437 already leaked in June 2018, and a bit later we got a tip saying it could be the EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors) or EOS 90D. We had different rumors about the sensor resolution of K437, but a resolution of 6940×4640. i.e. 32MP leaked already in September 2018, so this new post by Nokishita is more a confirmation than a new rumor. Also note that recent rumors we got suggest Canon might replace both the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II with one new camera.

So, is this the replacement for the EOS 80D and/or the EOS 7D Mark II? It’s possible. It’s less likely that K437 points to a new EOS R model or a full frame DSLR. If this is going to be a new Canon APS-C flagship then it gets a big resolution bump from the 24MP resolution of current Canon APS-C DSLRs.

Stay tuned.
