Lots of Talk, Very Little Solid Information About Canon’s Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Recently we’ve learned that six different Canon cameras have leaked through certification authorities (see here and here). The only camera out of the bunch that we’re quite sure is coming this year, is the EOS M5 Mark II ahead of Photokina 2018 in September. Beyond that, everything is currently a bit messy.

Around the web, there are various contradicting reports about Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera, sometimes promoting the idea Canon will release two FF MILCs, sometimes not. Unfortunately, so far, we have been unable to confirm that Canon has two FF MILCs on their agenda. Good sources have said repeatedly to us that there would be just one full frame mirrorless camera to start with.

Now, rumors are rumors, and rarely a rumor has been abused as much as the Canon full frame mirrorless camera rumor. Not having any specifications to discuss, the only thing remaining so far is the announcement date. We all eagerly want to know when Canon will eventually release the FF MILC. Here too there are contradicting information about the announcement. Since registrations at wireless certification authorities happen many months before an actual announcement, it’s possible we have to take in account an announcement in 2019. If true, there is very little chance to get any real specifications in the next months. We will see a lot of guesses and speculations, though. And that besides all the clickbait crap we are unfortunately used to see and read.

Personally, and besides all the hints and rumors we get in our inbox, I’m starting to be more inclined to believe Canon will announce their first full frame mirrorless camera in Q1 2019. On the other hand, there are serious reports stating Nikon might announce their FF MILC very soon. If this is the case, I wonder if Canon will wait much longer to present their’s.

Btw, we can assure with a very high confidence that Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera will not have the same or a similar sensor as the EOS 5D Mark IV. The rumored resolution of 30MP lead some people to push the idea the sensor is closely related to the sensor in the 5D4. Unfortunately, this is a byproduct of the mess surrounding Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera rumor mill environment. Canon might be the most conservative company of the world, but for sure they are not so silly to launch a new product line with an old sensor.

At the end, we can not exclude we’ll have to wait for 2019 in order to see Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera. If so, get ready for a flooding of unreliable information. The most difficult thing for us is to discern the crap from what is true.

Stay tuned.

Nikon discontinued the Nikon 1 mirrorless line-up, getting ready for their FF MILC?

Nikon 1

Nikon Japan officially discontinued the Nikon 1 line-up of mirrorless cameras, a line-up that wasn’t very successful. The timing seems to be on spot for the introduction of the company’s first full frame mirrorless camera.

Rumored specifications for Nikon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera have already leaked over the web. Nikon officially stated that they will release a full frame mirrorless camera before Spring 2019.

And Canon? There is a certain likelihood Canon may announce a full frame mirrorless camera ahead of Photokina 2018. So far as good as no specifications have leaked. All Canon full frame mirrorless rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned.

Yet another suggestion Canon might announce a full frame mirrorless camera before Photokina 2018

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

We wrote it for weeks if not months: Canon might announce a full frame mirrorless camera before Photokina 2018 (September).

Now others seem to have come to the same conclusion and are suggesting Canon might announce one of the (supposedly) two full frame mirrorless cameras they have on their agenda. It’s just 10 weeks to Photokina 2018, so, if an announcement in September 2018 is to expect, then very soon we will see serious leaks instead of speculations. The only thing sure so far is that Canon will announce at least one full frame mirrorless camera between now and Q1 2019. It’ sure it’s coming but no one knows when.

Off Brand: Nikon full frame mirrorless camera specifications surface

Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Nikon Rumors

While we are waiting to learn more about Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera, we have some leaks about Nikon’s to discuss. May also give us a glimpse about what Canon has on their agenda.

Nikon Rumors reports these specifications:

  • Two mirrorless cameras: one with 24-25MP and one with 45MP (48MP is also a possibility).
  • Similar body size to the Sony a7 camera but with better ergonomics and a better grip.
  • 5-axis in-body stabilization
  • 9fps
  • New mirrorless mount.
  • The new mirrorless mount will allow for f/0.95 lenses
  • Memory cards: XQD and CF Express
  • EVF resolution: 3.6MP
  • Initially, three lenses will be announced: 24-70mm, 35mm and 50mm (the 35 and 50mm could be f/1.4). There is also talk about a 24mm, but it may come later.
  •  Pricing:
    • The 45MP model will be around $4,000/€4,000 in a kit with the 24-70mm lens.
    • The 25MP model will be under $3,000/€3,000 (also with a lens).
  • The official announcement is rumored for the end of July (on or around July 23rd) and shipping shortly after (August 23rd).

As you can see, a new mount type is rumored for Nikon as well as for Canon. We are a bit skeptical about an end of July announcement. Does Nikon want to be there before Canon? In such a scenario, we might think Canon will follow soon with the announcement of their full frame mirrorless camera.

Exciting times, more to come…

Canon set to announce a new MILC ahead of Photokina 2018 but it may not be a full frame mirrorless

Full Frame Mirrorless

We got a bunch of suggestions that Canon will announce a new, pro-oriented mirrorless camera ahead of Photokina 2018 (September), and it may be another APS-C camera.

Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera has not been put on ice. It will most likely be announced before Photokina 2019 (May). While rumors and rumor outlets have alternatively suggested a September 2018 and Q1 2019 announcement, we start to believe that Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera is indeed a 2019 affair.

While we have always been told by our sources that Canon will announce their full frame MILC ahead Photokina 2018, we have now reasons to think that Canon is set to announce two new MILCS within the next 8 or 9 months. The first one will be announced ahead of Photokina 2018, the second one ahead of Photokina 2019. The former will most likely be another APS-C body, the latter the long awaited full frame mirrorless camera.

For the time being we have no clues about specifications of both cameras. We expect the full frame mirrorless camera to have a sensor resolution around 36MP, the APS-C MILC may go around 28MP. For more tidbits check the four articles below.

Things are hard to get by since Canon started to secure their development plans from leaking. More to come…

Another suggestion a Canon full frame mirrorless camera may be announced ahead of Photokina 2018

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

We got a bunch of mails suggesting that the announcement of the long rumored Canon full frame mirrorless camera may happen ahead of Photokina 2018, i.e. before September 2018.

An announcement around September 2018 has always been what was suggested to us, though sometimes we got some doubts. Shall we now take September 2018 again as a candidate announcement date? I do not know at the time being.

Sincerely, I really hope Canon will announce this thing asap so it’s over. Since I started this site, this is the most stressful rumor I had to deal with. Not only we get a lot of unreliable mails (i.e. absolute bs) but it’s also getting harder to discern the crap from what may indeed have some value. We are more on the conservative side, I guess, so most of the things that are suggested to us are not being published immediately, if ever.

If, and only if, an announcement in September 2018 is to expect, then there will be first serious leaks no later than end of July 2018 or beginning of August 2018. But then, there will be another Photokina in May 2019. So it’s either for the former or for the latter.

That Canon will still not have been announced their full frame mirrorless camera by Photokina 2019 (May 2019) is unrealistic. It will happen within a year at most. Maybe this is the only thing we can be somewhat sure about.
