Let's me think about a rough artists concept ... an artists rough concept I made 5 years ago - see image below and submitted some years ago ( https://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=7114.msg131220#msg131220  ).

Now I would like to have sth. like a 12mm extension ring as adapter to get EF flange distance (reusing old glass!) but I would like to have the ring around the mount in such a beast to set e.g. the aperture. While using mostly primes or a zoom with preset focal length AND AF I have the left hand free to choose one parameter without any effort (like 30 years ago with FD lenses).
Now I am really back in the "100mm Macro (equiv) can do 95% for me camp" - no longer ultrawide and long tele addicted.

In general I think the SL2 is really close to that design. Compared to the D77 it has a more comfortable grip but they cut away some 15mm from the left side to keep overall size small.


Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

Most likely the Canon FF mirrorless which is supposed to be appearing around Sept 2018. The image accompanying the post seems to have caused a lot of confusion, but the actual description doesn't mention body which rotates separately to the grip, just a camera with a deep grip which looks different to a Canon DSLR. So, most likely, a new mirrorless then?

That drawing reminds me of earlier generations of Powershot cameras esp Pro 70 or Pro 90 IS.
The handgrip on the side looks detachable. It pretty much looks likes a mini c100 with no top handle, and a little bit more towards DSLR style than the C series, but it definitely looks similar to a c100.
Looks kind of like the Pro 1 from the drawing.

Guys, that isn't the camera. That's just a drawing that CR Guy recycled from a patent illustration, totally unrelated.


Whoops. Well, I like it anyway... 😉😂

This may pose a problem if you're using larger lenses as the body will be wanting to tip/swivel downward.

well, it looks about as bulky, fat, fugly and so totally opposite to my idea of a Canon mirrorless I'd want to buy that it may well be the real thing ... genuine Canon   :P  ;D

If it looks like an XC15 and shoots like XC15, it is an XC15. Or XC20.

That is a picture of a video focused camera. If somebody showed it to me without the attached article expressing confusion about what it could be, I would say it was an XC15.

Except then, it wouldn't be substantially different than. Any Canon body ever made. There's nothing at all to say that the new body will look like that drawing.

Per CanonNews site, Canon has filed a patent for a 'variety of high end APS-C zoom lenses' (Dec 2017) :

14-35 2.8
9-22 2.8
10-35 2.8-3.5
18-80 4.0
18-75 4.0
12-30 2.8

 APS-C dslrs have been around for ages, but why these many high end zooms all of a sudden ? Hm.. I recall seeing a post here (CR) that Canon will be launching an ILC type video oriented *system* slated for later this year. The system is supposedly positioned below CinemaEOS (read smaller than super35 sensor). Coupling that with Canon's announcement that 4k in the 7d3 will involve a 'slight crop' of an APS-C sensor leads me to think Canon's new system will be a sub APS-C ( a new format) prosumer oriented video ILC system with an EF compatible mount and that their first camera will launch with an introductory set of zooms (two or more from the above).

Could be a mirrorless camera, that has magnetic lock style adapters, could take all EF-M, EF-S, and EF lens.  The adaptor has a mirrorlock, so for those who want to use EF they can, and they dont have to feel that adaptor gets in the way all the argument a 100x again.

Thats what it looks like to me.

Hope it is for EF-M, not EF-S. Would buy an EF-M 18-75 or 80/constant 4.0 IS STM any time.  8)

One way that Canon could differentiate themselves in the medium format space is to have a larger sensor (and lenses).
They could make a 0.5x crop camera with a 3:2 aspect ratio that is exactly 2x the width and 2x the height of current full frame.
Make it compatible with EF lenses (adapter) so you can take images that use the entire EF image circle (obviously there will be a lot of 'black' area with no coverage), and then crop out the aspect ratio you want later.

if anything, they could be the first company to offer a 60mm x 60mm "true medium format" square sensor. THAT would be the only worthwhile market niche i can see for "Canon MF". All other niches are well under control of competitors.

He confidently stated the Canon MF camera will be a 1-series body style.

Just like the MILC market was well under the control of competitors?  5 years after entering it, Canon had grown to the #2 spot globally.
