Canon Patent: In Body Image Stabilization For EOS M Or PowerShot Camera

Canon Patent

After all those Canon patents referring to RF mount lenses, here is a different one: IBIS on a small camera body.

Canon patent application US20210105391 (USA) discusses In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) for a small camera body. According to the drawings in the patent literature it’s either an EOS M camera or a PowerShot camera. IBIS coming to the EOS M system is already rumored. This patent seems to consolidate it.

This one looks more like a PowerShot camera

Canon Might Announce Two New Cameras….This Week!

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Canon might announce two new cameras within this week. We have so far no idea about what Canon is going to announce.

It’s not clear what kind of cameras Canon is going to release. The new cameras are in a “new segment for the company“. However, the rumor also suggests that the cameras have an internal model number that’s similar to those usually used or PowerShot or EOS M cameras. And that’s not a new segment.

The cameras might also be remotely-controllable Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) HD cameras with a price tag around $4,000. Canon has some offering in this segment, so not sure how much this is a new segment.

Might also be one of Canon’s concept cameras.

Stay tuned, stay safe.

The Canon EOS M Is Not Going To Die, New Rumors Contradicting Old Ones

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

A few months ago a rather weird rumor surface from the interconnected rumor jungle: the Canon EOS M lineup is going to die this year.

A totally unrealistic rumor, as we pointed out. Moreover, one of our sources told us it is not going to happen. Now it appears the original source suggesting the imminent death of the EOS M system is also changing its mind.

The latest rumor claims that Canon is set to “pivot the EOS M system [in] a new direction”. Not only this, but Canon might also announce a new EOS M camera this year. Not sure what the “pivoting in a new direction” might mean but it definitely doesn’t sound as if the EOS M series will be put to death any time soon. 2021 might thus be the year we will eventually learn more about the future of the EOS M system.

Mind that the EOS M series is quite popular with amateurs. Why would Canon kill the EOS M system? The EOS M50 is a best seller since it was released, and the EOS M50 Mark II is following on its footsteps. Indeed, the whole EOS M series is ratjher popular. The EOS M50 is a top seller on the US and Japan market. A fact stated by Canon itself.

I don’t think Canon is so dumb to discontinue their best selling mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor as long as people wants to buy it in large figures.

Stay tuned, and stay safe.

Death Of Canon EOS M Series “not happening” But Production Might Slow Down, Report

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

We have some news about the imminent death of the Canon EOS M lineup. It’s not going to happen.

A good source contacted us and told us that Canon putting an end to the EOS M lineup is “not happening any time soon”. Although, the source added, production of EOS M cameras and lenses is likely to slow down because of supply issues caused by the pandemic and Canon giving precedence to the EOS R system.

We had no doubt about that and got similar hints from other sources. On the other hand, common sense is already enough to debunk this always again recycled rumor. Ask yourself: why would Canon kill a lineup with bestsellers like the EOS M50? Not to mention that the whole EOS M series is quite popular with consumers. So, Canon is set to kill their best selling mirrorless camera with ab APS-C sensor? We don’t think that is realistic.

The soon-to-come death of the EOS M series is often used to push another weird rumor, that’s Canon releasing an EOS R model with APS-C sensor. We are still not entirely sold on an EOS R with crop sensor, although it’s at least possible. The same rumor suggesting that EOS R with APS-C also claims that Canon has no intention to make RF mount lenses for the APS-C sensor. A bit strange if you think that Canon made a wholesome EF-S lens lineup for their DSLRs with crop sensor.

Also, keep in mind that APS-C centered technology is less expensive than its full frame counterpart, both for the manufacturer and for the consumer. Not only has the manufacturing process of an APS-C imaging sensor lower costs than for FF, the lower costs regard all part that make up an APS-C camera (lenses included). This applies more to DSLRs but it also true for mirrorless to some degree. APS-C technology also means longer reach with telephoto lenses, one of the reasons the EOS 7D series was so popular with wild life photographers. Last but not least: APS-C technology means smaller form size of the camera. Something a lot of users appreciate.

In conclusion, we don’t think Canon will kill the EOS M lineup. There simply is no rational in doing it. Maybe, and only maybe, if Canon really releases an EOS R with APS-C sensor (and dedicated lenses for such a crop system), then it might happen. If it does, it won’t happen in 2021, as rumored, but sometime in the next 5 or more years. If ever.

The Canon EOS M System Is Going To Die. Is It Really?

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

A few weeks ago a many times recycled rumor made its rounds again, suggesting Canon will kill the Canon EOS M lineup after 2021. We think this is bs.

Going on since many years, the rumor suggesting the imminent dead of the EOS M system surfaces now and then. But it’s utterly absurd, and good only for clickbait. There is no reason Canon would kill the EOS M lineup. We reached out to our sources and no one told us this might happen.

Why the hell would Canon kill the EOS M system? The EOS M50 is a best seller since it was released, and the EOS M50 Mark II is following on its footsteps. Indeed, the whole EOS M series is very popular. The mere fact that some sites consider it not worth to be mentioned doesn’t prove the end is near for the EOS M. The EOS M50 is a top seller on the US and Japan market. A fact stated by Canon itself.

I don’t think Canon is so dumb to discontinue their best selling mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor as long as people wants to buy it in large figures. It seems that the only reason the EOS M has to die is because of some snobbish people who wants it to. You know, those characters with a website always bragging with their expensive gear while belittling less expensive cameras and the people using them.

We might be wrong, obviously. But we would be surprised if we are. There is simply no reason Canon would kill the EOS M and it seems calling it dead has no reason than to support another long running and bewildering rumor.

Let us know what you think.
