  1. What's new in this club
  2. Canon is rumored to announce seven new RF lenses for 2019: Canon RF 16-35mm f/2.8L Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Canon RF 105mm f/1.4L Canon RF 85mm f/1.8 IS STM Canon RF Macro lens Canon RF non-L kit lens
  3. Rumors of a new Canon EOS R mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor surfaced online again. There is also the possibility that Canon will start using the brand new Sony IMX571 26MP back-illuminated APS-C sensor in one of their upcoming cameras (not sure if it will be a DSLR or a mirrorless with RF mount).
  4. Lensvid published their interview with Mike Burnhill from Canon Europe, here is the recap (more interviews can be found here): Just like the Nikon Z6/Z7 – Canon targeted with the EOS-R photo enthusiasts and not pro shooters. This led to many decisions that people have later criticized (slow shooting speed, single memory card slot, no full sensor readout in 4K), however, for the most part, all of these are the result of the way Canon’s engineers designed this camera for the specific target audience they went for (just think about this camera as a slightly more advanced mirrorless 6D MKII). The EOS-R started as a project that aimed to make the ideal lens mount (and future lenses). DSLR lenses are complex since they need to compensate for the longer flange distance using additional optics – when you remove the mirror you can remove some of the additional unnecessary optics and make better, small lenses. With the dual pixel technology every pixel on the camera is an AF point which means that on the EOS-R you have theoretically 30 million AF points, however, this is not practical so Canon reduced this number to 5655 AF points which is a limitation of the screen, not the sensor The sensor in the EOS-R is from the same “family” of the 5D IV, however, Canon did change a few things like the microlenses as well as the ability to AF in low light (up to -6EV – something that we have seen in action in a demo) and of course the number of selectable AF points which is much higher on the EOS-R. There is no option to turn off the shutter closing down when the camera turns off (to prevent dust getting into the sensor. The flange back of the lens is more important than the flange distance – what is important is to be able to put the back of the lens closer to the sensor for better optical performance. There is not a technical option to put an EOS-R on an EOS-M. The other way around is (maybe) possible but it will only be a macro lens according to Burnhill. Full sensor readout is not something that was possible to have at this price point at this point in time for Canon (video was just a small part of the feature list Canon wanted for this camera and 4K was even smaller). Burnhill did mention that Canon is aware of the fact that there are users who want this and more advanced video features will come with future models. Doing 10bit 4:2:2 internally (in the camera as opposed to into an external recorder) is not there yet in terms of heating, processing, cost etc. Canon invented the dual card slot for cameras and it understand how it is important for reliability, however for the target market of this camera – Canon didn’t see the need to add it. However, Burnhill made it clear that a pro mirrorless camera will most likely include a dual card slot. The idea to add the multi-function controller came from a new Canon engineer (sort of crazy Google style experiment that actually got it to a final product and Canon wants to see how users will accept it and see if it is worth keeping for future cameras). On sensor image stabilization is something that Canon didn’t include because of cost and target market (again this camera was not really designed for pro video work). Canon promised to release the “holy trinity” of lenses in 2019 (24-70mm, 70-200mm, 16-35mm). Even more interesting – Canon will not introduce any new F-mount lenses in 2019, but will focus all its efforts on RF lenses. New EF lenses will come later on (there are internal roadmaps for EF) but Canon knows it needs to catch up on its mirrorless lenses. Canon got some feedback on the eye-AF and the engineers are looking at ways to add this feature for continuous AF. via LensVid
  5. Canon is rumored to be currently testing a new EOS R mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor. It is not clear if this model will be officially announced in the future. via CanonRumors
  6. First leaked images and specifications of the Canon EOS R and the new RF mount lenses: Canon EOS R Specifications 30.3mp Full Frame CMOS Dual pixel CMOS AF 100% vertical x 88% horizontal AF coverage (We think) EV -6 low brightness autofocus 4K video Touchscreen LCD Articulating screen Wi-Fi Bluetooth Microphone jack Headphone jack Dustproof Drip-proof Magnesium body Battery: LP-E6N Battery grip: BG-E22 Size: Width of about 136 mm × height of about 98 mm Weight: Approximately 580 g Mount: inner diameter 54 mm, flange back 20 mm, 12 pin Mount adapter: “Mount adapter EF – EOS R” “Control ring mount adapter EF – EOS R” “Drop – in filter mount adapter EF – EOS R” Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Size: Approximately 74mm (2.9 inches) × 62mm (2.4 inches) Weight: Approximately 306g (10.8oz) Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Size: Approximately 83mm (3.26 inches) x 107mm (4.2 inches) Weight: Approximately 698g (1.5lbs) via Nokishita-camera.com
  7. Nokishita reports that Canon will soon announce a new PowerShot SX740 HS camera that will replace the current PowerShot SX730 model (pictured above). The new model will be available in both black and silver colors. via Nokishita
  8. Canon will release two full frame mirrorless cameras before the middle of 2019, the first one to come will be the “flagship” model for this new line of cameras. As reported earlier, this camera will sport a 30.4mp sensor that could be closely related to the EOS 5D Mark IV. The second full frame mirrorless body will be a lower megapixel count. We’ve seen mentions of various pixel counts, which isn’t unusual, as test cameras can come with a wide array of different image sensors. The most likely pixel count will be around 24mp, we do not believe they’ll be using the EOS 6D Mark II’s 26.2mp sensor, or even a modified version of it. Both cameras will shoot 4K, with the “flagship” model providing the best video features. We’re also told that there’s a possibility of a removable EVF on one of the cameras, which we think would be reserved for the lower end full frame mirrorless camera. We’re told that there are currently no plans to release a camera that will compete directly with Sony’s high ISO capable Alpha a7s II. What about the mount? We cannot get a straight answer about this. We’ve been told everything from a new mount to EF mount. One trusted source told us that the full frame mirrorless camera and EF mount problem has a “sexy” solution. We’re not sure what that means, but it’s the best news we’ve received on the topic. When are they coming? Both camera bodies will be shipping by mid 2019, but the exact announcement date for the first camera is unknown at this time. What will they be called? For the moment we only have codenames, but “EOS M1” has yet to be used by Canon. Other than that, no naming suggestions have been sent our way. via CanonRumors
  9. Canon now has a total of five new/upcoming cameras registered online (there was only one new camera registered three weeks ago). Two of the new cameras are DSLRs, three are mirrorless and one conmpact. Here are the details: Canon registered a new DS126721 camera The Canon K436 and K437 will be new DSLR cameras while the K424, K433 and EC811 will be mirrorless K433, K436, K437 and EC811 will all have Bluetooth remote control function The battery of the K436 is the same as the Canon EOS 77D The battery of the K437 is the same as Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Here is one possible scenario: K437 is the new EOS 7D Mark III K436 is the new EOS 80D Mark II EC811 is the new EOS M5 Mark II via Photorumors.com
  10. Samyang will soon announce a new AF 85mm f/1.4 EF full frame lens for Canon EF mount. The weight of the new lens is 485g and the dimensions are 88 x 72mm - significantly lighter and smaller than Canon version (950g, 88 x 105mm).
  11. Canon registered four new lenses with the Russian certification authority. This brings the total number of registered and not-yet-announced Canon lenses to five. The new lenses will be made in Japan (Canon Utsunomiya Factory, Oita Factory). Via Digicame-info
  12. It appears to be an EF mount with high speed electrical connections, not a hybrid mount, not a new mount type.
  13. Canon is rumored to announce new 70-200mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/2.8L lenses in June:
  14. Canon has a patent (2018-054913) for a new tilting screen designed for EOS-M mirrorless cameras (via CanonNews).
  15. Canonrumors confirmed that the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II will be announced in April.
  16. Canon Mirrorless Camera Last week CanonRumors reported that the new Canon full frame mirrorless camera is coming soon and is already being tested by select Canon pro photographers. Today Nokishita confirmed this rumor and posted several new Canon camera registrations that include also two new mirrorless models: K424 Interchangeable lens camera Full frame Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed It is described as a mirrorless full frame (6720 × 4480) in the test data (since the detail column is filled with almost the same data as 5D Mark IV [K349], the image size may be a dummy possibility) K433 Interchangeable lens camera Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed It is described as a mirrorless full frame in the test data (it is the same as the data of K424, so it is possible that the initial setting data was diverted for testing) K436 Lens interchangeable camera (probably single lens reflex) Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed K437 Lens interchangeable camera (probably single lens reflex) Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed EC801 Compact digital camera Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed EC804 Compact digital camera Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed More functions than EC 801 and EC 805 (probably G series) EC 805 Compact digital camera Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed EC 811 Mirror-less camera Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed via Photorumors
  17. Canon Has Ambitious Plans Canon made an interesting statement in their annual Corporate Strategy Conference (page 8) - the company is planning to go on the offensive in the mirrorless market and reach 50% market share of the entire interchangeable-lens camera market:
  18. Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Prototype Exists CanonRumors reports that a full frame mirrorless camera prototype with a new body style does exist. Here is what we know: It has a top down LCD like the Leica SL The flange distance looks too short for it to be an EF mount, but no lens was attached to the body to be sure A press of the shutter button in burst mode sounded like it shot over 10fps There were no markings on branding on the body via Photorumors.com
