Since the announcement of the Canon EOS R final yr, there have been unrelenting questions on what a real next-generation skilled mirrorless digital camera from Canon was coming.

We’re instructed that there are two our bodies deliberate that shall be marketed as “professional” our bodies once they hit the market in 2020. However, neither considered one of them shall be thought of equals or a alternative for the EOS-1D collection of DSLRs. We’re going to see an EOS-1D X Mark III subsequent yr and that would be the flagship digital camera from Canon by 2020.

The apparent first EOS R collection digital camera would be the high-resolution physique we’ve been speaking about for months.

The different shall be a “sports” oriented digital camera, with larger body charges, decrease decision and a few developments in sensor efficiency. This digital camera shall be designed for prosumer shooters in addition to a really perfect 2nd physique to “professional” photographers that could be utilizing the EOS-1D collection of DSLRs. So it virtually appears like a mirrorless full-frame EOS 7D physique.

We’re instructed that there’s a basic feeling skilled sports activities shooters (and different skilled EOS-1D shooters) would be the final to embrace mirrorless cameras throughout the board, and we agree with that. So making a complimentary digital camera physique to the EOS-1D collection that checks plenty of the containers would make sense.

The similar supply says there was no point out or discuss what kind of developments in video are coming for the EOS R line.
