Are These The Specifications Of The Upcoming High-Megapixel Canon EOS R?

Canon Eos R

Yesterday a patent was spotted that seems to confirm our rumor about the resolution of the upcoming Canon EOS R camera.

Today, perfectly on schedule, a set of suggested specifications for the the high resolution EOS R surfaced. We were expecting it. Here are the specifications (of a prototype, according to the source):

  • A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
  • 80mp full-frame image sensor
  • A “new style” of joystick
  • Larger LCD than the EOS R
  • Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
  • The “viewfinder” can be tilted up and down
  • Dual SD card slots
  • No video specifications are known

All in all everything in the list above is plausible. A high resolution EOS R that’s going to replace the Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R would have everything listed above.

The high resolution EOS R was scheduled to be announced in 2019 but it starts to appear it will come in 2020. We are still not sure about this.

All high resolution EOS R rumors are listed here. More Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Canon Patent Application Seems To Confirm Our Rumor About High Resolution EOS R Model

Canon Patent Application

Back in August we were tipped about what might be the sensor resolution of the upcoming high resolution Canon EOS R body.

Now a Canon patent application (2019-149607, Japan) surfaced. The patent application discusses an image sensor having a resolution of 83MP. To be more precise, the Canon patent discusses how you can improve focus accuracy based upon different subject colors. Two sensors ate discussed, one having a resolution of 20.75MP, the other of 83.06MP.

We think this Canon patent application could refer to the sensor of the yet not announced high resolution EOS R model (all rumors).

There is another aspect that captured our attention. The other discussed resolution, 20.75MP, is almost exactly 1/4 of 83.06. So is this patent application referring to the same technology, i.e. Quad Pixel AF, as this previously spotted patent application? We do not think, however, that Canon’s high resolution EOS R will have Quad Pixel AF.

An 83MP resolution is also what you get in a full frame sensor if you upscale the 32.5MP of the new APS-C sensor featured on the brand new Canon EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II. So, a full frame sensor with 83MP, as we leaked, is definitely a possibility. Add to this that the upcoming high resolution EOS R camera will also (most likely) replace the Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R and it appears even more likely.

Might this patent refer to the sensor in Canon’s upcoming high resolution EOS R camera?

A Pro-Oriented Canon EOS R To Be Announced In 2021, Prototype Already Around?

Canon Eos R

Is a professional tier Canon EOS R model due not earlier than 2021?

That’s what Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun reports. And that it will take 3 more years for the Canon RF lens ecosystem to match the EF mount lineup. And that a prototype of the pro-oriented EOS R body has already manufactured.

What we are talking here, is an EOS R model that’s equivalent to the Canon EOS-1D X cameras, i.e. the very flagship cameras in Canon’s offering. Such a camera has already been rumored, but its announcement was speculated to happen in 2020.

If this rumor is reliable, and we think it is, then at least we now know that a professional EOS R model is real. A working prototype means that Canon is actively developing this camera.

And where is the high resolution EOS R? So far we have no new intel about. Still considering a 2019 announcement to be likely.

Stay tuned.
