Canon EOS R5C Rumored to be Announced in Q1 of 2022

We already know that Canon is working on a new Canon EOS R5C cinema camera that is designed specifically for videographers. Now we have several confirmations that the development of such a camera is on the way.

Initially, it was said that the Canon EOS R5C camera could be announced around NAB in October this year, but apparently it has been postponed to the first quarter of 2022. We think that Canon wants to release it within 60 days after its announcement.

The Canon EOS R5C camera is expected to have the same image sensor as the Canon EOS R5 and will have all of the same recording options (8K30 Raw and 4K120 10-Bit Internal Video). In addition, the Canon EOS R5C will be equipped with a powerful cooling system, a slightly different form factor, and more codecs for video recording as well as a full-size HDMI port, and it is expected to be a very attractive camera especially for those who mainly use videos for long turns.

Canon EOS R5C Rumored Specifications

  • Name: Canon EOS R5C
  • Active cooling system
  • Slightly different form factor
  • More codecs for video recording
  • Full-size HDMI port
  • The same image sensor as the Canon EOS R5 (45MP)
  • The same recording options as the Canon EOS R5 (8K30 Raw and 4K120 10-Bit Internal Video)

Still a long time to go for an announcement in Q1 of 2022.

Confirmed : Canon EOS R3 Sensor is Designed and Manufactured by Canon

It is now confirmed that the Canon EOS R3 sensor is designed and manufactured by Canon. 

Canon officially announced the development of the EOS R3 full-frame mirrorless camera and stated that the upcoming EOS R3 sensor “will feature Canon’s first-ever full-frame backside-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor that it designed in-house”.

But nearly a month after Canon EOS R3 development announcement, some sites reported that the sensor in the upcoming Canon EOS R3 could made by Sony.

To put an end to speculations, Canon has reiterated in no uncertain terms that it is not only the designer of the new sensor but also its manufacturer (via PetaPixel).

This is the same statement that the company said to journalists in April ahead of the Canon EOS R3’s official development announcement.

The Canon EOS R3 will be an ideal mirrorless camera for sports, wildlife and news photographers.

Rumors About Canon EOS R7, EOS R8 & EOS R9 APS-C Mirrorless Cameras

Canon is rumored to announce three new APS-C format RF mount mirrorless cameras. This rumor is about possible  Canon EOS R7, EOS R8 & EOS R9 that will arrive in the next 1-2 years:.

Canon EOS R7: The first Canon RF mount camera with an APS-C image sensor. It is already undergoing testing in the field by a select group of photographers. The official announcement will come as soon as Q4 of 2021, or Q1 in 2022. The source claims that the Canon EOS R7 APS-C RF mount camera will be “directly aimed at sports, wildlife and videography”, to replace the Canon EOS 7D Mark II? And this Canon EOS R7 is rumored to have a 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor, DIGIC X Image Processor, 5-Axis IBIS and UHD 4K60p & Full HD 120p video and more.

Canon EOS R8: The second Canon APS-C RF mount mirrorless camera. This camera will be designed for vloggers and other types of social media creators.

Canon EOS R9: The third Canon APS-C RF mount mirrorless camera. This will be the entry-level camera to the EOS R system.

Of course, these are just rumors and we cannot claim that all these models will be implemented yet. The previous rumor said that Canon will stop spending more resources developing Canon EOS M series cameras and 2021 will be the last year for Canon EOS M series cameras. This information is still not verified by reliable sources so take this information with a pinch of salt.
