More Information About the New Camera Line [CR1]
« on: January 26, 2018, 10:33:22 AM »
We’ve had a follow-up from yesterdays story about a “new style of camera” being tested by Canon. The original source and second source have added to the story.

A breakdown of what we’ve been told, I’ve labeled the sources 1 (original) & 2 (new):

  • Removable grip (1)
  • The body has two scroll wheels like a pro Canon DSLR (1)
  • Two versions of the camera (2)
  • Bigger camera is EF/EF-S (2)
  • Smaller camera is EF-M (2)
  • Canon is working on a new EF/EF-S to EF-M adaptor to make Cinema lenses fully compatible with the EF-M mount camera. (2)

There is one contradiction between the two sources. Source 1 says the body does NOT look like the XC line, the second source said they do. This sort of thing can be up to the eye of the beholder, so we’ll look past it for now.

After receiving these two separate  bits of information, I began to wonder if I was being trolled, but I noticed something from source #2 that gave me a bit more confidence in the information. Still, none of this information is confirmed at this time.

I did lower the rating to [CR1] on this.

Neat!

That's exciting stuff; I like hearing that there is a native mount EF/EF-S version and a EF-M version.  You'd think a EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter wouldn't be that different from the one for the M cameras.

It would be wonderful if Canon stuck to this when they develop a mirrorless Full Frame.  I might even buy one, then :D

This would be awesome. It would get people to keep their Canon glass and invest more in EF-M glass if they ramp their lineup. 4K 60p, please, Canon- otherwise, it's a non-starter.

New  EF - EF-M adapter makes sense if that camera sports a Super35 fomat option because APS-C is 22.5 mm wide and Super35 format is 25mm wide. The current EF-M adapters have a bezel like structure inside which might block some light for the Super35 image borders.

Maybe they add some changeable gray filters - there was a patent floating around from Canon - into the adapter. I think they use something like I2C for body-lens-communication so it would be easy to control this additional feature in the adapter.
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
