Is Canon planning some VR (Virtual Reality) production system based on the Canon EOS R camera system? A patent application appears to suggest exactly this.

Canon patent application 2020-42197A (Japan) discusses optical formulas for a dual view anamorphic optic for 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras (i.e. the Canon EOS R system).

  • Focal length: vertical 7.44 mm, horizontal 5,57 mm
  • F number: 4.00, 2.81
  • Half angle of view: 90, 90
  • Image height: 11,75 mm, 8.75 mm
  • Lens length: 100.00 mm
  • Back focus: 15.92 mm

Intriguing, isn’t it? What plans does Canon have with the EOS R system and the RF mount? At least it has become very clear that Canon is very committed to their new full frame mirrorless system.
