A new Canon patent and for once it doesn't refer to RF mount lenses but…
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.
More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
- A battery grip that works with differently siszed cameras
