2020 has just begun and it looks like it will be an exciting year when it comes to Canon cameras. According to the latest reports, Canon might introduce three new mirrorless cameras over the course of 2020. And what’s more, the first of them may come as soon as next month.
The Canon EOS R has proven to be somewhat popular. But so as to not put all their eggs in one basket, and to not eat into potential sales of a future model, it certainly wasn’t the perfect camera Canon shooters had hoped they’d release to compete with Sony’s latest round of mirrorless cameras.
Rumours of an upcoming EOS R Mark II announcement have been around for a little while, and there have even been reports of them being tested out in the wild. But there has been no information on their capabilities. Now, though, Canon Rumors has reported a list of possible specs.
Action cameras seem to come out with alarming regularity, and more players are jumping into the field every year. But there’s been very little real innovation in action cameras beyond improving on what already exists. Insta360, though has taken a very different approach with their entry into the world of action cameras.
Announced today, the Insta360 ONE R sees Insta360 team up with Leica to develop a modular action camera that offers three different ways to shoot. A dual-lens “Super 5.7K” 360° module, a 4K wide-angle module, and a 1″ 5.3K wide-angle module developed in partnership with Leica.

Since the initial and somewhat vague “development announcement” in September, Nikon has remained pretty tight-lipped about the impending Nikon D6. They haven’t even said when they’re announcing it, yet, although all indicators pointed towards a date in early 2020, following on from the January 6th announcement dates in 2012 and 2016 for the D4 and D5 respectively.
But it seems the announcement may come in a tad later, according to a report on Nikon Rumors. They say they’ve been hearing February 12th, 2020 as a potential announcement date more than once, although it could be for an internal presentation rather than a public announcement. But they do have an updated list of rumoured specs, too.
Well, it was bound to happen, wasn’t it? Nikon has been slacking on the mirrorless front and Nikkei now reports that they are projected to take 3rd place behind Sony in camera sales for this fiscal year. In a year where Nikon is set to record their first loss, at around $92 million (way down from their initial projections of $110 million profit), this isn’t good news for the company.
