Are These The Specifications Of The Upcoming High-Megapixel Canon EOS R?

Canon Eos R Firmware Update

Yesterday a patent was spotted that seems to confirm our rumor about the resolution of the upcoming Canon EOS R camera.

Today, perfectly on schedule, a set of suggested specifications for the the high resolution EOS R surfaced. We were expecting it. Here are the specifications (of a prototype, according to the source):

  • A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
  • 80mp full-frame image sensor
  • A “new style” of joystick
  • Larger LCD than the EOS R
  • Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
  • The “viewfinder” can be tilted up and down
  • Dual SD card slots
  • No video specifications are known

All in all everything in the list above is plausible. A high resolution EOS R that’s going to replace the Canon EOS 5Ds/5Ds R would have everything listed above.

The high resolution EOS R was scheduled to be announced in 2019 but it starts to appear it will come in 2020. We are still not sure about this.

All high resolution EOS R rumors are listed here. More Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.
