It’s been two years since Zeiss announced ZX1, a full-frame Android-powered camera. The announcement was followed by a lot of questions, and it looks like all of them will be answered at last, since the Zeiss ZX1 has finally become available for preorders.
The Sony A7c is shaping up to be quite an interesting camera. This vlogger-and-creator oriented full-frame camera comes in a very small body that appears similar in size to Sony’s A6x00 series cameras. It doesn’t quite bump the Sigma fp it off its “world’s smallest full-frame mirrorless” pedestal, though.
A few photos of the new camera are out there, but now we also have some of the specs. For such a small camera, they seem quite impressive, too. And while it will likely be most popular with video content creators, it looks like it’ll be no slouch when it comes to stills, either.
It’s been a while since we heard anything about the “ultra high resolution” Canon RF mount mirrorless camera. It’s set to be the followup to the 50-megapixel 5DS and 5DSR DSLRs and was first rumoured way back in November 2018 with an expected 2019 release date. 2019 came and went with just a single mention and no new camera.
In March of this year, the EOS 5DS and 5DSR seemed to cease production, followed by word that a high-resolution RF mount camera was being tested. But again, silence ever since. Now rumours are resurfacing that the camera (which Canon Rumors has dubbed the “R5s”) is out in the wild and being tested again.
It seems almost inevitable that when Canon announces a new camera, it’ll get a quick whack from the cripple hammer, at least when it comes to video. Canon is pretty notorious for teasing some pretty amazing video claims, but then when the final product comes out and the specs are confirmed, many are left disappointed.
The biggest issue many video shoots have with Canon these days is the often severe crop that many of the cameras see when shooting their highest resolution video. It was a concern for the upcoming Canon EOS R5‘s boast of 8K video, too. But now Canon has confirmed that the EOS R5 will indeed shoot full-frame, cropless, 8K video.
The controversial M-Fn touchbar which was introduced with Canon’s EOS R mirrorless camera is notably absent from the upcoming EOS R5, new images show. Japanese website DC Watch has posted several images of the new camera, including some from the rear, showing that the touch bar found on the EOS R is nowhere to be found.
Instead, it has been replaced by the familiar AF-ON button and a joystick for your thumb. This will be good news to critics of the M-Fn touchbar, who weren’t keen on it in the EOS R. But it’s not the only change from the EOS R. The back has ha a complete redesign. When you see the two side by side, the differences become quite apparent.
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.
It’s been a minute since we last heard anything about the Lightroom-powered Zeiss ZX1 camera. Almost a whole year, in fact. It was first announced rather quietly at Photokina 2018 last September followed by a brief hands-on in December, but since then it’s been radio silence.
Now it looks like it might be one step closer to actually being released after support for its DNG files was added to the latest Adobe Camera Raw 12.1 update.
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.
