With CP+ cancelled, the next show of any real size is The Photography Show in the UK next month. We’ve already heard that the Nikon D6 will be making its debut there, but now it seems that Canon’s EOS R5 is coming way ahead of when everybody thought and will also make its own grand entrance at TPS between March 14-17th, 2020.
Canon has teased some real info about the rumoured EOS R5 full-frame RF mount mirrorless camera, and it looks like it’s going to be a bit of a beast. First of all, it’s real, and it will definitely be called the EOS R5.
Aimed squarely at professionals, and looking to take sales from Sony’s A7R IV, the two big features of the EOS R5 are that it will be able to shoot 8K video and will be Canon’s first camera to utilise in-body image stabilisation.
Well, this has been an interesting one. Rumours have been flying all day about an upcoming Canon mirrorless camera. That camera, according to Canon Rumors now appears to essentially be a mirrorless update to the 5D Mark IV. The EOS R5 will have a 45-megapixel sensor, shoot up to 20fps and insanely high resolution 8K 30fps video.
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.
According to a report on Digital Camera World, Canon will not be releasing anymore EF mount lenses for their DSLRs, despite having just announced the Canon 1DX Mark III, their new flagship DSLR, only yesterday. They say they are open to the possibility of making new ones, though, if the market demands it. But for now, they want to shift their attention towards RF lenses for their EOS R system.
So, this will make, what? 4 new Canon bodies expected in the relatively near future? There’s the EOS 1DX Mark III, an EOS 1DX-like mirrorless, a super high resolution “EOS Rs” and now an EOS R Mark II is already being tested, according to Canon Rumors.
The Canon EOS R was announced only just over a year ago in September 2018, and it seems crazy to replace it so quickly, although a Mark II was already rumoured to be on Canon’s roadmap as recently as October. The EOS R, while rather good, isn’t perfect, and Canon is playing catch up to Sony in some respects, so a short initial release cycle isn’t too crazy.
Canon’s EOS 5DS and 5DSR have proven quite popular amongst landscape, architecture, product, macro and other photographers who demand high resolutions over speed. But they were released in 2015 and Canon has shown no indication that they’ll be replaced by an upcoming DSLR. A high-resolution EOS R mirrorless model, however, has been rumoured for a while now.
Now it looks like the folks at Canon Rumors have managed to get their hands on some possible specs for the new high-res mirrorless, which they’re dubbing the “EOS Rs”. Their source also claims to have shot with a prototype of the new model, and that we can expect an announcement possibly as soon as February.
Two years after announcing the EOS M100, Canon is introducing its successor, the EOS M200. Canon hasn’t changed much in terms of design, but there are some other improvements you may find useful. First of all, the new M200 is capable of shooting 4K, and it has improved autofocus. Let’s dive in and see the remaining specs.
