Canon EOS RP To Feature A 26MP Sensor? [CW2] – UPDATE

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Update 1/6/19: it turned out the rumor is reliable.

An unconfirmed suggestion showed up in our inbox, coming from unknown source. The upcoming Canon EOS RP might have a 26MP sensor.

Earlier a rumor emerged suggesting the EOS RP will have a 24MP sensor. In favour of a 26MP sensor there is a yet unreleased Canon camera which leaked a year ago through a wireless certification authority.

The unreleased camera denominated K433 has these (machine translated) specifications:

  • Mirrorless camera
  • Full size [full frame, editor’s note]
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Maximum image size of test machine: 6240 × 4160 [makes up to 26MP, editor’s note]
  • Probably will be released within 1 year data as 5D Mark IV [K349], the image size may be a dummy possibility)

As fas as we know this camera has not yet been released. On the other hand, the poorly translated “image size may be a dummy possibility” might also mean there is no 26MP full frame mirrorless camera on Canon’s agenda. This is not the first time a 26MP sensor suggestion comes up, but there was some confusion about the denomination. So, it looks the Canon EOS RP might have a 26MP sensor. The announcement is on February 14.

Any help appreciated, sound off in the comment section.

Canon’s Next EOS R Model Is Entry Level, Costs $1600, And Has One Card Slot, Announcement Feb 14

Canon Eos R Firmware Update

Canon’s next full frame mirrorless camera will most probably not be a high resolution model as we wrote. It will be a competitively priced entry level model.

A good source told us it will sell at $1,600, and have one card slot, which is to expect at this price. The moniker EOS RP is most likely.

So far we do not have more specifications to share but I’m sure more information will show up soon.

Stay tuned.

We can add a bit of information to our leak about a major, mirrorless related Canon announcement expected for mid February 2019.

We have been told that Canon is set to hold this announcement on February 14, 2019. We still have no reliable intel about what Canon is going to announce, but a new full frame mirrorless model is very likely. Some new RF lenses might also be on the plan.

In the past days a new moniker emerged from the web, Canon EOS RP, and we have reasons to believe it will be a new EOS R model. Our sources always suggested Canon would announce a high resolution model in Q1 2019. Others believe an entry level EOS R model is in the pipeline.

Stay tuned, more to some soon…

The Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Party Of 2018

Full Frame Mirrorless

2018 was an important year for the mirrorless camera industry. Canon launched the EOS R, Nikon released their Z line-up, and Panasonic announced their upcoming Lumix S1 and S1R cameras.

Reason enough for the folks at DPReview to make a short video animation about the state of the full frame mirrorless nation. Enjoy.

Nikon Execs Believe They Will Beat Sony and Canon and Become Nr. 1 in FF MILC Market

Canon

In an interview with DPReview dating back to Photokina, Nikon Execs made a bold statement.

When asked about aimed market shares, they said that they point to become the number one in the full frame MILC market.

Question: Do you have an internal target for percentage of sales represented by Nikon mirrorless versus DSLR?

We have internal sales targets for each model, but we cannot disclose the figures. Our goal is to become number one in the full-frame market for both mirrorless and DSLRs.

Question: What is your target timeframe for achieving this goal?

That’s a difficult question to answer – we cannot disclose the specific timeline, but we will make every effort to hit the target of being number one as soon as possible. We believe that we can achieve the number one position maybe quite soon. A lot of manufacturers have launched full-frame mirrorless cameras, but sales of our Z6 and Z7 are really robust, which gives us confidence.

Good luck Nikon. Beating Sony and Canon won’t be an easy task. And as long as we are concerned, we have no doubts Canon will dominate the market within a few years.
