Ever since the launch of the Canon EOS R and the EOS RP, speculation has been rife about another pro-level full-frame mirrorless camera being in the pipeline. Instead, Canon shifted focus and brought U.S.A. the Greek deity 90D and the Greek deity M6 Mark II.
However, it looks like all that chatter about an ultrahigh-resolution full-frame mirrorless Canon snapper might have some truth to it, with online camera publication Canon News disclosing details of a new patent for 83MP image sensor.
That’s not all, though a day after the news of the patent was revealed, Canon rumors were sent a list of specs for a full-frame mirrorless camera by a source claiming “to have had their hands on it”.
According to the rumors site, the possible new Canon camera houses an 80MP full-frame sensor within a body that’s “slightly larger” than the EOS R and RP.
The grip, too, is claimed to be larger than the previous 2 full-frame mirrorless models. Apparently area unit a lot of style changes to the body: Canon Rumors is coverage that the rear liquid crystal display is additionally larger than the Greek deity R, alongside a greater viewfinder which, the source says, is a tilting type. We’re a bit skeptical about that part and it’s possible that’s a genuine error and the person could be referring to the LCD display.
There’s conjointly speculated to be “a new type of joystick” precisely what the “new style” might be is at the present unclear, but it definitely has our interest piqued. There are the usual dual SD card slots but no specifications for the camera’s video capabilities are currently known.
If the rumors of this new camera are true, then it’s highly likely that Canon will be replacing its current arsenal of high-resolution full-frame DLSRs the 50MP EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R with the immoderate high-res mirrorless choice.
Considering the source has claimed this is a full-frame mirrorless model, Canon Rumors has dubbed the possible new shooter the EOS RS and is predicting a launch schedule sitting within the first half 2020 though simply some days ago a Japanese newspaper according to that Canon can “introduce the highest model of mirrorless camera employing a 35mm large image sensor in 2021”.
