Despite rumours of a 1DX-like mirrorless camera to add to Canon’s EOS R line up in 2021, it seems that Canon plans to offer the best of both worlds. According to a report on Canon Rumors, Canon is also going to release a 1DX Mark III DSLR, too, in 2020.
Last month, Canon Rumors reported that a 32-megapixel APS-C sensor was on the way from Canon. Now it looks like that information has been confirmed, according to a Taiwan certification agency.
The document seems to be mostly in Chinese, according to Google Translate, and mostly seems to relate to a new wireless module. But it mentions that it’s destined for a new Canon sensor. DC126801 appears to be a new 32.5-megapixel sensor that could be set to go into either a 7D Mark III or 90D DSLR.
It seems that the Canon will finally add 4K video to the G7X line in a Mark III refresh, if a post on Canon Rumors is to be believed. It’s been a long demanded feature and the sole reason why many still choose to go with the Sony RX100 models over the G7X line for things like vlogging.
CR says that they have received some specs, but that they come from an unconfirmed source. But given the specs of the previous model G7X Mark II, the suggested specs for a Mark III incarnation don’t seem too out of line.
It seems Canon weren’t kidding when they said they were willing to cannibalise their DSLR sales to go full on into mirrorless. Canon Rumors report that they have “confirmed” Canon’s new mirrorless camera is out there in the hands of “select Canon pro photographers”.
They note that a survey was sent out to some Canon Explorers of Light in January, asking what they wanted to see in a “professional” mirrorless camera. It seems that now, we may actually be closer than we thought to Canon actually announcing something.
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.
Rumours about the 5D Mark IV seem fairly scarce. At least compared to most of the new camera releases we’ve seen over the years. The only thing we know for sure is that it’s called the 5D Mark IV.
Canon Rumors now report that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV may be released with a 30MP sensor. If true, it would be an interesting new sensor. This would be the first time seeing this resolution in a DSLR.
