Canon UK ambassador Andy Rouse has been lively on Instagram apparently teasing a brand new digicam physique. I might assume he’s not out utilizing one other firm’s gear, so what might he be speaking about?

He mentions using “new kit” and saying “I had to take the motor drive speed down from 30 fps to 5fps as I was taking too many sharp shots”

So what might he be teasing and/or testing? The apparent reply can be the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Andy was one of many early testers of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, in order that’s not an excessive amount of of a leap to imagine. We have been instructed again in February that testing had begun on the EOS-1D X Mark II substitute.

Is it potential that the EOS-1D X Mark III will shoot 30fps with the mirror locked up?

There’s additionally a chance he’s testing out the brand new 32.5mp APS-C shooter that’s coming, however that is much less seemingly. The point out of capturing stills at 30fps would in all probability be far too taxing for a 32.5mp APS-C digicam, because the throughput required can be fairly excessive. Although, it might be a decrease megapixel function to get the upper framerate whereas sacrificing decision.

It may be a brand new EOS R digicam, as body price will seemingly be fairly excessive on any kind of “professional” mirrorless physique.

All of this might be a lot ado about nothing.

There is plenty of dialogue on our discussion board about Andy’s social media posts during the last week or so, you’ll be able to test it out right here.
