According to the latest Canon rumors, Canon EOS R1 announcement is planned for the second half of 2023. There could be a teaser for this new R1 in Spring 2023. In terms of features, Canon EOS R1 will be a new resolution king, and it will focus on 8K video production.
Latest reports say that Canon’s new flagship will be the “new resolution king” and will focus on 8K motion production and integration with the Cinema EOS series, but that there will be no “C” version.
We have also heard that the EOS R1 is a step forward in form factor and ergonomics, combining what you would expect from Canon’s flagship camera with some new features. Canon has spent much of its development talking to photographers, especially pros using the EOS R3.
Until now, we had no idea what kind of camera the EOS R1 would be, but since information has come out that it will be the “king of resolution”, if this is true, it will be at least higher than the 61 million pixels of Sony a7R IV.
Will the EOS R1 be a camera that combines ultra-high resolution, high-speed continuous shooting, and 8K video functions? Also, since it emphasizes cooperation with Cinema EOS, it seems to be a camera that emphasizes video.
