Canon China has posted a teaser to the Chinese social media website Weibo for a product announcement event on February 8th. The event is set to start at 11:50am China time on February 8th, which means 3:50am for the UK and 10:50pm Easter and 7:50pm Pacific on the February 7th. Time Zones are a pain. Anyway, Canon seems set to make a big announcement within the next couple of days.
There are no hints as to what the product might be, but with rumours of EOS R8 and EOS R50 cameras being announced soon, it’s logical to assume that’s what we might see being announced. The EOS R8 looks like it’ll replace Canon’s original EOS R camera (and perhaps the EOS RP), while the EOS R50 finally appears to be a true EOS M system replacement and a direct replacement for the EOS M50 II.
