A Canon DSLR Rumor Roundup Heading into 2018

A Canon DSLR Rumor Roundup Heading into 2018

By Canon Rumors | August 21, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

In the next week or so, we’ll be seeing the announcement of at least 4 lenses, an EF 85mm f/1.4L IS as well as three new tilt shift lenses, a TS-50mm f/2.8L Macro, TS-90mm f/2.8L Macro and a TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro. We’ll also see the EOS M100 mirrorless camera announced around the same time.

We have seen mentions of a new entry level  Rebel being announced, but we don’t usually hear too much about those.

Beyond that, we aren’t going to be seeing new Canon DSLR until early 2018. We’ve been told that there is likely going to be a “shakeup” as far as prosumer APS-C DSLRs go. The source is trying to find out what the “shake-up will be”, but I think by the time 2018 rolls around, both the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II are going to be ready for an update. Canon  cannot wait 5 years again for a sequel to the EOS 7D Mark II.

We should also see our first 4K APS-C camera from Canon in 2018. Whether it is in mirrorless or DSLR form remains to be seen.

The same source says the roadmap shows a replacement for the EOS 5DS and EOS  5DS R coming in 2018 as well. It’s expected by the source that Canon will amalgamate the two high megapixel bodies into one model. Nikon did the same thing after the D800 and D800E, as we only saw the D810.

What was interesting is that a “professional EOS-1” is said to be starting in-the-field testing in 2018. That doesn’t mean we’ll see a new body next year, but 2018 is an Olympic and FIFA World  Cup  year, which usually (but not always) lends itself to some new prosumer/professional gear.

There was no mention of a full frame mirrorless camera from this source.

Patent: Variable Curved Image Sensor Concept

Patent: Variable Curved Image Sensor Concept

By Canon Rumors | August 18, 2017 | Canon Patents

Northlight Images has uncovered a patent showing some curved sensor technology. The interesting part of this patent, is that the level of curvature in the sensor changes depending on the focal length.

You can see in the image above that there is a piston like device that will change the curve of the sensor.

As pointed out by Northlight, a “flat” setting is included here as well, so there should be no compatibility issues with old or third party lenses.
