Patent: Canon Auto Switching Hybrid OVF and EVF

A patent showing a hybrid optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder from Canon has appeared. I’m going off the Google translation of the patent, but if anyone can translate the Japanese a bit better, we’d appreciate hearing from you.

Patent Publication No. 2016-173443 (Google translated)

  • Published 2016.9.29
  • Filing date 2015.3.17
  • Provided with the OVF and EVF
  • Trackable AF
  • It switched to the EVF and deviates from the effective range of the AF sensor

Could this be something we see introduced in a new EOS Rebel DSLR?
