Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 Announcements As Scheduled, But Shipping Might Get Delayed

Canon EOS R5

There have been rumors the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 might get delayed because of the Coronavirus outbreak. It has neither been confirmed nor denied by Canon.

Now another rumor adds some bits. It’s reported that Canon will stick to the scheduled announcement dates. However, shipments could indeed be subject to a bunch of yet unknown factors that could have an influence on dates.

The same source also reports that Canon will likely push back announcements for new lenses. If this is caused by the virus outbreak is not reported.

This sets the announcement of the EOS R5 (already development-announced) and the EOS R6 within the next two months. A new Cinema Camera should also come in April 2020.

So, you’ll be soon be able to place a preorder for the R5 and R6, and will then have to wait an unknown time for delivery. Let’s hope not.

All we know about the highly anticipated Canon EOS R5 is listed here.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R5 And EOS R6 Production Might Be Delayed Because Of Coronavirus

Coronavirus Eos R5

A somewhat different Canon rumor surfaced, and it’s about the Coronavirus.

The production of the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 is reduced because both are “running at less than 1/4 of Canon’s manufacturing capacity due to supply chain issues from the Coronavirus“. Please note: this is a rumor, not an official report.

The same source also states that Canon is currently deciding if start to deliver the EOS R5 and EOS R6 as planned and with limited quantity available, or to wait until October 2020 to be able to satisfy the demand without shortcuts.

So far there are no official confirmation or else form Canon.

Another Yet Unreleased Canon Camera Shows Up At Certification Authority

Canon Camera

Nokishita spotted another unreleased Canon camera as it shows up at a wireless certification authority.

The newly spotted Canon camera has the denomination DS126838, and uses the same battery as the previously spotted camera.

We think this might be either the upcoming Canon EOS R5 or, maybe more likely, the also upcoming Canon EOS R6.

Please note that the data sheet below mentions a 600EX-RX Speedlite. Is this just a typo (600EX-RT would be correct) or is Canon set to release a new flash?

Stay tuned for more to come.

Canon Rumour: IBIS Is Coming To The Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6

Canon Rumour

Here is new Canon rumour about the upcoming Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 full frame mirrorless cameras.

After a lot of rumors and a remarkable collection of patent applications about IBIS, it seems to be rather sure Canon will feature it on EOS R5 and EOS R6.

A source claiming to have seen promotional videos of both cameras delivered some more bits about. It’s just a bit surprising that a promotional video for a camera, the EOS R6, said to be announced in May, is already leaking.

However, according to the latest murmuring:

  • The EOS R5 has magnesium alloy body, the R6 has not
  • The EOS R6 has a no top-down LCD
  • The EOS R6 has multiple scroll wheels
  • The EOS R6 has a more rounded shape than existing R models

Sounds all plausible, we just wonder that a promotional video has already been produced (and leaked) months before the announcement. Still possible, though, that Canon made a promo video for both the EOS R6 and R5, despite the former getting announced late than the latter.

We expect the EOS R5 to get announced very soon, i.e. within the next weeks. The Canon EOS R5 is rumored to come with some amazing features, and that’s the reason some people think they are not real (the feats in bold are said to be more likely to be real).

  • It will not be named Canon EOS Rs but R5
  • 45mp full frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K@30fps RAW
  • 4K@120fps
  • 4K@60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month
  • Shipping in July 2020 

Stay tuned for the next Canon rumour.

Canon EOS R6 Rumor – Is A 20MP EOS R Camera Coming?

Canon Eos R6 Rumor

While we still have to decide what to think about the latest Canon EOS R5 rumor, here we are with a first time Canon EOS R6 rumor.

Not sure where these monikers come from, if they are Canon’s or just made up by the rumor mills. However, an alleged specification list for an alleged Canon EOS R6 (previously rumored as EOS Rm) camera surfaced over the web, and here it is:

  • 20mp full frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
  • 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
  • 4K@60p
  • New battery (might be the same as the EOS R5)
  • Announcement in May 2020
  • Starts shipping in June 2020

We are not really convinced of this specification list. As little as we are of the EOS R5 spec list (which still seems to be too good to be true).

Time will tell. In the meantime stay tuned for the next Canon EOS R6 rumor.
