The Canon EOS R5 C has been rejected for Netflix Certification. This means Netflix has rejected the Canon EOS R5C for production certification. Also Canon doesn’t have any intention to address the issue like Sony did with the FX3.
Neither Netflix or Canon has spoken directly on why the camera was denied, but the only thing we think that the camera lacks Canon Log-2. There may be some other image quality reason that we don’t know about. The Canon EOS R5C seems to have every other feature required by Netflix for certification.
Here is a fresh Canon rumor. Canon is on the verge to announce four L-grade prime lenses for the RF mount within the next 12 months. As a reminder RF L-series lenses represent the very best in optical technology with faster performance and a whole new level of quality.
These are the rumored lenses:
Canon RF 12mm f/1.8L USM
Canon RF 24mm f/1.4L USM
Canon RF 28mm f/1.4L USM
Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM
Since we have already confirmed that RF 135mm f/1.8L USM lens will be announced soon, first of these Canon lenses could be the RF 24mm f/1.4L USM lens. Stay tuned for more info.
Canon has announced the new CR-N700 4K PTZ camera. The US price for CR-N700 is same as Sony FR7 and stands for $9,699. Pre-orders are available at B&H Photo Video/Adorama. The release date for CR-N700 is scheduled for December 2022.
Canon is rumored to release two more super-telephoto prime lenses in early 2023. One of these lenses will be RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens and according to recent rumors, this telephoto prime lens has been tested in the wild.
Canon has discontinued the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens for a long time, so many Canon photographer are waiting for this lens.
The Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L and RF 500mm f/4L are said to be much lighter and shorter than their EF mount counterparts. In addition, Canon may actually release the RF mount version of the 300 f/2.8 as a zoom.
