Shortly after we got the Canon EOS R1 rumor there was more stuff that surfaced from the interweb of rumor mills.

We were told that the Canon EOS R1 might get released in Q3 2022, and that it will “let all competitors behind” (whatever that means). Over there at Canon Rumors they got a few more bits immediately after we posted our rumor. Here are the new bits:

  • Global shutter? Despite being on the wishlist of many, it seems once more it was a hoax. No global shutter on the EOS R1.
  • Where is the EOS R1 positioned? According to a source, the R1 is “A jack of all trades, and a master of none. Except that it will be a master of everything.” (whatever that means(
  • Is the EOS R1 ready? Not yet, apparently. It seems some of the EOS R3 feedback will go into the EOS R1
  • How many megapixel will it have? More than the EOS R3 but no one knows yet how many. Might well be above the 45MP of the EOS R5.
  • Video? Most likely it will have 8K video on board
  • What about the price? Moe than the EOS R3 but less than $10,000.

As you can see, no real beef on the fire here. Sound more like educated speculation than specification to us. Time will tell.

Stay tuned…

A new, fresh rumor about the Canon EOS R1, a not yet released Canon mirrorless camera.

According to our source, the Canon EOS R1 might be released around Q3 2022. Not much has been told to us about the specifications. Just that the Canon EOS R1 will incorporate technology that will “let all competitors behind“. Whatever that means.

The Canon EOS R1 (moniker comes from the web, not official Canon name) will be Canon’s flagship full frame mirrorless camera. The next step after the already game changing EOS R3. No doubt left here that the EOS R1 will be another game changer in the industry.

Stay tuned, there is more to come soon…

A New Canon EOS R Camera Coming Within 2021, And It’s Not The R1

Eos R Canon Cameras

A new Canon EOS R camera might get announced in the second half of 2021. And it seems it is not the flagship EOS R1.

A new rumor suggests that “an exciting new RF mount camera is coming early in the 2nd half of 2021“. Not the EOS R1 but maybe, just maybe, it might be the high resolution version of the EOS R5. No other information is available at this point. Also, it seems, according to the source of the rumor, that Canon still has supply chain issues.

No new rumor about the EOS R1. At this point we wonder if we will see it within this year or in 2022.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned, stay safe.

Possible Canon EOS R1 Flagship Specifications (85MP, global shutter, Quad-Pixel AF)

Canon Eos R1 Rumour

Update (3/6/21): I have reasons to believe the list below was already posted on Weibo. Please take it in account when evaluating the rumor.


A anonymous source contacted us (thanks) and sent a list of what could be the specifications of Canon’s upcoming EOS R1 flagship camera.

We know such a camera is in the coming, most rumors foresee an announcement within 2021. Without further ado, here is the specification list we got:

  • Approx. 85MP global shutter CMOS imaging sensor
  • Approx. 85MP at 20fps, 21MP at 40fps unlimited continued shooting
  • Full Sensor Large Quad Pixel Auto-focus technology
  • 15.5 EV+ wide dynamic range
  • ISO 160-1638400
  • 5-axis IBIS up to 9 stop
  • 3.5” 9.33MP 1280nit 10-bit WCG RGB-OLED touch screen with 120Hz AE-AF
  • 9.44MP 120Hz SuperSpeed AE-AF electronic viewfinder
  • Price $8,500 in USA

The list is a bit on the “to good to be true” side of things. On the other hand, no one expected the R5 to be so feature rich and innovative, hence the EOS R1 might have all those killer features above. In any case, for the time being we recommend to take it with a grain of salt.

And there is another thing. The specs, especially the 85MP resolution seem to be more likely for the also rumored high resolution EOS R camera, dubbed EOS R5s, which is indeed rumored to have a resolution around 90MP. We got the rumor as referring to the EOS R1 but it wouldn’t be the first time that similar information gets lost in translation. As far as I am concerned, the specifications above might well refer to the EOS R1.

The Canon EOS R1 is rumored to get announced along with two new big telephoto lenses for the RF mount system. All Canon EOS R1 rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned, stay safe.

Canon Developed A New 21MP Sensor, Might It Be Featured On The EOS R1?

Canon Eos Line-up Eos R7 Eos R10

We got an interesting tip and want to share it with you. It’s a about a new image sensor developed by Canon and the possibility it will be featured on the EOS R1.

Our source told us (thanks) that Canon has developed a new image sensor with these specifications:

Just to be clear: the rumored sensor is not a 2/3″ sensor but it is based on a 2/3 inch sensor.

So, the question here is: might this sensor come with the Canon EOS R1? Maybe. The EOS R1 is said to be equivalent to the EOS-1D X lineup, and it is rumored to get released in 2021. Will a 21MP full frame sensor still be good enough for a sport-oriented, professional mirrorless camera in 2021? Let me know what you think.

Canon EOS R1 And Two “big white” RF Telephoto Lenses Coming In 2021?

Canon Eos R1

Here is a new EOS R rumor, and it’s about the Canon EOS R1 and new telephoto lenses for the RF mount.

The rumor suggests Canon will release two “big white” telephoto lenses along with the C Canon EOS R1 somewhere in Q2 2021. Please note that “R1” is a moniker created by the community, not an official Canon naming.

No idea so far if one the big white telephoto lenses is the rumored RF 500mm f/2.8L. A RF 300mm f/2.8L IS lens is also a possible candidate. In any case it fits into Canon’s strategy to gradually broaden the professional RF lenses lineup.

The EOS R1 is supposedly the EOS R camera equivalent to the EOS-1D X lineup. Honestly, we have some doubts Canon might release such a camera in 2021 but everything is possible. It’s a while it’s rumored, and we are sure it is coming.

Stay tuned.
