Canon Ambassador Teases New 30fps Canon DSLR On Social Networks

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

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.

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.

Report: Canon EOS 80D/7DII Replacement and EOS M5 Mark II Next From Canon?

EOS 80d Eos M5

A new report on the series of rumor outlets says that Canon is about to replace a mid-level DSLR. The same report also mentions what we are mentioning since a while now, that the replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II could be one camera for both.

The report also claims what we’ve already posted many times, that the replacement for the EOS M5 will be announced within 2019.

So far no reliable information have been leaked about the specification for the EOS 80D/7DII replacement.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS 80D And EOS 7D Mark II To Be Replaced By One New APS-C DSLR? [CW2]

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

We have been told (thanks) that Canon will not release a replacement for the Canon EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II. Instead, there will be one model to replace both.

So, no EOS 90D nor EOS 7D Mark III? The suggestion comes from a new source, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s entirely possible, though. Given the success Canon’s mirrorless cameras are having (both EOS M and EOS R systems) it’s plausible that Canon starts investing less in APS-C DSLR development. Moreover, both replacements are long overdue.

If this rumor is reliable, expect a new Canon APS-C flagship with plenty of features, combining the best of the Canon EOS xxD series (e.g. tiltable screen) with the best of the EOS 7D series (e.g. weather sealing, sturdiness), and an entirely newly developed sensor.

We are rather cautious with rumors flooding our inbox after a major Canon announcement, since in our experience they rarely are reliable. However, it’s not the first time we hear about Canon planing to put the EOS xxD and EOS 7D line-ups together. Given the sheer amount of more or less entry-level oriented Canon APS-C DSLRs, it definitely possible.

Stay tuned.

Unreleased Canon Gear Leakes Through Certification Authority (EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds replacements?)

Ibis Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Canon PowerShot G7 X Canon Eos 90d

Nokishita posted a new list of camera codes used in certification authorities.

Note that both DS126751 and DS126761 are either DSLRs or full frame mirrorless cameras. One might be the replacement for the EOS 5Ds(R) or the rumored high resolution EOS R model. It’s suggested that both models have a full frame sensor, either in a DSLR or a MILC. However, DS126761 seems to refer to a more entry level oriented camera and thus may well point to the Canon EOS 80D or Rebel SL2 replacements (maybe something got lost in translation?). Both are expected to be announced in the first half of 2019. P2355 refers to a PowerShot camera and might be the PowerShot G7X Mark III. No signs of the EOS 7D Mark III here.

Canon EOS 90D to be announced before end of 2018?

EOS 80d Eos M5

After a while, we got a new Canon EOS 90D rumor.

Latest has it that the EOS 90D is the next DSLRs Canon is set to announce, and that this may well happen before the end of 2018.

We had contrasting rumors in the past, suggesting a 2018 announcement first and a 2019 announcement after that.

If you have a look at Wikipedia, you’ll see that the interval between Canon xxD models has been around 3 years for the latest models.

  • Canon EOS 40D – August 2007
  • Canon EOS 50D – October 2008
  • Canon EOS 60D – August 2010
  • Canon EOS 70D – July 2013
  • Canon EOS 80D – February 2016

Given the fast pace the industry is evolving, I wouldn’t be surprised if Canon decides to put the EOS 90D (all rumors) on market before the next big holiday shopping season. The Canon EOS 80D was and still is highly popular and having a replacement ready for Christmas wouldn’t hurt Canon.

However, there other candidate DSLRs for an announcement in 2018, who may not be likely but still possible.

First, we have the long rumored full frame mirrorless camera, which is alternatively rumored to be announced towards the end of 2018 (think Photokina), or in Q1 2019 (think Photokina again).

Next, there is the Canon EOS 7D Mark III (all rumors). The latest bit we got about the EOS 7D Mark III was saying we should expect an announcement between September 2018 and May 2019. Not very a exciting hint, to be honest. Personally, I’m starting to think this will be a 2019 affair.

Though less likely than the ones above, it could also be the Canon EOS 5Ds R Mark II (all rumors) that’s going to be announced in September 2018. Here too there have been contradicting suggestions about the announcement.

Stay tuned.
