The Canon EOS M50 is the company’s next mirrorless camera

Canon Rumors

 

Nokishita spotted new, unreleased Canon gear. And it gets pretty interesting.

It appears Canon has registered the Bluetooth module of a new camera at a certification authority. The new camera is named EOS M50 (Kiss M in Japan), and it definitely appears be a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

It’s suggested the EOS M50 might be similar to the EOS M5 but with less features. I’m a bit puzzled by the moniker “Kiss M” (for the Japanese market), which seems to suggest a more DSLR-like design. Well, this is assuming “Kiss M” and “EOS M50” refer to the same piece of gear (I think they do).

When gear is spotted at certification authorities it is usually a matter of weeks before this gear gets announced. However, I do not expect the EOS M50 to be announced in 2017. This will most likely be a 2018 announcement.

What do you think is the EOS M50? Sound off in the comment section.

DPReview published their full review of Canon’s latest beginner oriented mirrorless camera, the EOS M100, Canon’s smallest and most inexpensive mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Excerpts from DPReview’s conclusion:

On the whole, we consider the M100 to be a great value and incredibly user-friendly. If you’re a novice, and grow in your photography such that you find you do want to dictate some of your exposure settings, this camera also offers all the manual control you might want. […]

The Canon EOS M100 offers virtually identical image quality to the higher-end EOS M5 and M6 for hundreds of dollars less; this means that dynamic range and noise levels are competitive, if not best-in-class. […] [the EOS M100] will simply take great pictures under a wide variety of scenarios, and places very few demands on the user while doing so. It’s a camera that you just want to pick up and take with you to document your daily life.

And it’s because the M100 is such an enjoyable camera to use at a competitive price, that it encourages you to bring it with you rather than letting it languish on a shelf, and that it makes taking pictures genuinely fun, it earns our highest award. Read the review…



Canon clearly had the audience of smartphone users looking to step up in mind, and at those users they aimed the EOS M100. It’s a pity that Canon still does not deliver a real ecosystem (i,e. lenses) for their EOS M system. It must also be said that EF/EF-S lenses used with the EF/EF-M adapter and Dual Pixel AF perform very good. Still, native lenses would be better.

The EOS M100 is getting many positive reviews. Good to see that Canon did it right. You can download the EOS M100 user manual, in case you want to learn more about Canon’s latest MILC.

ePHOTOzine posted their full review of the Canon EOS M100, the company’s latest entry-level mirrorless camera.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS M100 is a compact mirrorless camera, that is easy to use, and results from the camera are good, with colourful images, that are detailed with well controlled noise. The majority of lenses available for the camera are compact, and perform reasonably well, making the camera system quite appealing if you’re looking for a compact camera with DSLR image quality.

If you’re looking to use it as mostly a point and shoot camera, then the M100 would be a good choice. However, if you’re likely to want to advance beyond point and shoot, then the lack of flash hot-shoe and external controls makes it less suitable. For beginners, this would make a great mirrorless camera, but for photographers, there are simply too many other choices available, with better features and often a lower price. The next step up, from Canon, would be the Canon EOS M6, which is much more suitable for serious photographers. Read the review…

Canon’s latest entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M100, got reviewed by Photography Blog. The small M100 get’s a lot of love in reviews.

From the conclusion:

Canon has created its simplest and smallest EOS M mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor yet. The M100 can slide into a pocket and is capable of some lovely looking images.

You’ll get DSLR image quality, with the control of a point-and-shoot compact. Although the manual control is there, the Canon EOS M100 is definitely set up and geared to those that want the camera to get on with the job, with as little input was possible.

[…]

Ease of use aside, what new photographers will enjoy is the excellent image quality right-off-the-bat. Canon cameras like the EOS M100 are able to produce sharp images with accurate colour rendition, without the need for editing in post. Read the review…

Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might have a dedicated sensor [CW3]

 

canon rumorscanon rumors
Still nothing sure about Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera. Just a bit suggesting Canon will use a sensor developed specifically for their full frame mirrorless camera. No EOS 6D Mark II or 5D Mark IV sensor.

The suggestion  seems to come from an internal presentation at Canon. The announcement Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might happen at Fall 2018.

EOS M1 is rumored to be the moniker of Canon’s full frame MILC.

We know Nikon is now seriously committed to mirrorless, let’s hope Canon eventually does the same.

These are the tidbits about Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera, these:

  • Dedicated full frame CMOS sensor
  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.

Stay tuned

Is the Canon EOS M1 the company’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera? [CW2]

 

canon rumorscanon rumors

We were first to report Canon’s working on a full-frame mirrorless camera, and that early prototypes were undergoing first tests. Well, there are some news.

A new rumor suggests those prototypes have gone out of the labs and are no longer accessible only to Canon’s engineers. Though, so it is told, no prototype has been handled to trusted photographers so far. This camera is murmured to have the moniker EOS M1.

Apparently there will be a big marketing push when the EOS M1 will go to market. Which makes sense. If Canon is set to launch a prosumer mirrorless camera with a FF sensor and a serious set of features, then they will do it with much fanfare.

The rumor isn’t very clear if the EOS M1 will have an APS-C or a FF sensor. However, speculation points to a FF sensor, and to a seriously pro-oriented feature set. Let’s hope it is true.

We know Nikon is now seriously committed to mirrorless (s0 they say), it wouldn’t come as a surprise if Canon eventually does the same.

We still have only a few tidbits about Canon’s mirrorless camera, these:

  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount.

A Canon FF mirrorless camera is coming. Stay tuned.
