Canon EOS R5C
The Canon EOS R5c, a rumored update of the R5 that boasts a cooling system as not to overheat, will purportedly be released in Q1 2022.
Although Canon’s EOS R5 is a great full-frame mirrorless, due to overheating issues many professional cinematographers are not able to include the EOS R5 in their professional workflow.
The Canon EOS R5c is, according to perpetual leaks, a video-oriented version of the Canon EOS R5 with a number of upgrades – including an active cooling system for “unlimited 8K 30p”, the 21-pin Mult-Function Shoe debuted on the Canon EOS R3, a full-size HDMI port and the Canon Log 2 profile.

Canon 200D Mark III & Canon M300
The latest Canon EOS Rebel SL3, also known as the EOS 250D, EOS 200D II and the EOS Kiss X10 (B&H Photo Video/Amazon) simply makes everyday photography extraordinary. Canon has slowed down the development process for DSLR and compact cameras and continues to focus more on full-frame mirrorless. On the other hand, it is possible for entry-level cameras to show up sometime in 2022 and it will possibly be the Canon Canon EOS Rebel SL4 / EOS 250D Mark II / EOS 200D III camera a.k.a Canon Kiss X10i in Japan.

One thought on “Upcoming Canon Cameras 2022”
As a Canon user at heart since the film days when I had the Canon F-1N system, I hope Canon reads what I have to say.
When I finally went digital in late 2008, I opted for the Rebel XSi as it was on sale and came with 2 lenses. I then upgraded to a 60D, 80D, and 5Dii in that order with numerous lenses and accessories subsequently bought. I also had the G12 when it came out. Feeling the need to go smaller and lighter as I aged, I went mirrorless and bought a Panasonic Lumix GX85, GX8, and GX9. Their lightweight and small lenses got me sold even with a smaller sensor that struggles in low light conditions. I love the rangefinder type of the GX’s as the position of the viewfinder is such that my nose does not hit the monitor and I do not need to constantly wipe the oils from my nose on the monitor, plus your left eye is also able to clearly see things on the left side as it is not blocked by the body of the camera. Among these 3 models, I find the GX8 is best with its having an articulating monitor, an IBIS (though Panasonic crippled it as it won’t work with non-IS lenses when taking video), a mic input (albeit it is non-standard), numerous customizable buttons, a sensible layout of its control buttons and wheels, and a good-sized grip. One of the best features (shared with the GX9) is the ability to reposition the viewfinder from 0 to 90 degrees for the most comfortable position as called for when shooting stills or video. Despite what Chris Niccolls of Dpreview TV and other influencers say who question the latter’s functionality, it is a great usable feature.
Falling in love with the capabilities and functionalities of the rangefinder type mirrorless and wanting a full-frame system, I bought the Sony a7C as it fit my current needs. One of its features that got me sold is its ability to allow a full-frame lens to be used in APS-C (i.e., Super 35 mode). This allows me to limit my lens purchases. I bought the Tamron 17-28mm f2.8 and the Tamron 28-200mm f2.8-f5.6 lens so I’m basically covered for wide to telephoto (300mm in APS-C mode) with just these 2 lenses. The a7C is not perfect, but it will make do for now…until Canon comes up with a similar version in rangefinder format, but with enhanced features. Hopefully, they’ll include a tilting viewfinder like the GX8 (& GX9), plus more programmable buttons and a more sensible layout that Canon is famous for. Oh, and please add a button that allows instant 100% magnification when playing back a still image.
