Canon EOS Ra, the astrophotography version of EOS R, has been officially announced. We first learned about it in September, when an instruction leaflet was published online. Then a few photos leaked, and now the modified version of the Canon R is finally out.
With the new Canon EOS RP, Canon has added the second RF mount camera to its lineup. It’s the lightest and least expensive Canon full frame camera ever, and it has some promising specs. However, judging from the first impressions videos, filmmakers and other video content creators aren’t exactly pleased with the latest Canon mirrorless.
Last month, Chinese company KIPON announced the first line of third-party lenses for Canon EOS R and Nikon Z cameras. ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon and Canon, is now available for ordering in case you want to treat your full-frame mirrorless camera with a new lens.
The announcement of Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera got many photographers excited, while the others were disappointed. In his latest video, Tony Northrup tested the Canon EOS R compared to some of its biggest competitors: the Canon 5D Mk IV, Canon 6D Mk II, Sony a7 III, and Sony a7R III. Take a look at the video and see how Canon’s full-frame mirrorless stacks up against competition in terms of image quality.
After some rumors about Canon full-frame mirrorless and its announcement date, it’s now officially here: Canon EOS R is finally announced, along with four new RF-mount lenses. The full frame mirrorless camera features a new RF mount, so three EF to RF adapters will also be available. Now that we have the official info and specs, let’s see if Canon’s new camera will meet your expectations.
Here is something to get your Saturday night going. nokishita-camera.com, a site that is usually pretty reliable, just shared what they say are the full frame mirrorless Canon EOS R photos and specs:
It’s pretty much a given at this point that both Nikon and Canon will come crawling and fumbling into the world of mirrorless cameras. It’s simply become inevitable if they want to survive in a market that seems to be rapidly becoming Sony-centric. Many have switched over the past few years, and many more will do the same if Nikon and Canon don’t impress us with mirrorless tech. Soon.
The rumours of impending full-frame mirrorless cameras have been floating around for a little while for both manufacturers now. And while it may be a case of too little, too late, both will have to deliver something amazing. Both will also likely require brand new lenses. And spotted recently by the blog Hi-Low’s Note, a new Canon 16-28mm f/2.8 full-frame mirrorless lens patent offers some insight into what may be coming.
After Nikon has officially announced their full frame mirrorless camera, it seems it’s time for Canon now. Website Canon Rumors collected some interesting statements from trusted sources, suggesting that Canon will be launching a new mirrorless camera in late 2018. Or better yet – it may be more than just one camera.
Other than this, they write that the upcoming mirrorless body will not a sensor from Canon’s full frame DSLRs like EOS 6D Mark II or EOS 5D Mark IV. Instead, it will use have a dedicated sensor, developed specifically for this camera.
Many Canon fans have been looking forward to trying Canon EOS 6D Mark II in 2017. But rumor has it that they may not see their wish fulfill. It appears that Canon might have something else in mind. Instead of launching a follow-up to the popular EOS 6D, the company might make a completely different move – launch their own full frame mirrorless camera.
