Despite the introduction of the full-frame EOS R and EOS RP cameras, Canon isn’t giving up on its APS-C line of EOS M bodies, as evidenced by the release of the EOS M6 Mark II and the EOS M200. Rumour has it, though, that there are a couple of new ones expected to be released during 2020.
At this early stage, the specs need to be taken with a grain of salt, but one is suggested to be a Mark II successor to the EOS M50 (or perhaps a new M60), while the name of the other is currently unknown.
Rumoured EOS M50 Mark II / EOS M60
The EOS M50 was hotly anticipated and finally announced officially in February 2018. It’s been a very popular camera, despite the crazy 4K 2.5x crop mode.
- 32.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor
- DIGIC 8 Processor
- 4K UHD @ 30/24fps
- FullHD 1080p @ 120fps
- 3″ 1.04-m-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD
- Expected announcement September 2020
With an expected announcement date 10 months from now, I think this light might be more wishful thinking rather than anything we can bank on. It’s very rare that rumours this far ahead turn out to be true.
Rumoured EOS M camera
This one doesn’t have a name, but it does come with a price. Whether this will replace an existing model or be a new product line entirely (however unlikely) is anybody’s guess.
- 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
- 3rd generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology / Eye AF compatible
- 3″ vari-angle touchscreen LCD
- Announcement date before July 2020
- Priced at $849 with a kit lens
Even if these rumours are true, and even if we get more information coming out about these cameras over the next few weeks or months, I wouldn’t get my hopes up until we know whether or not they crop in even further than the native 1.6x crop of the APS-C sensor when shooting 4K video.
