Canon will release an APS-C RF mount camera(s) later in 2022 [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | November 30, 2021 | Canon EOS Rumors

The long rumoured APS-C RF mount camera from Canon is starting to appear more and more likely. I have been told by an solid source that Canon is “definitely” releasing an APS-C RF mount camera in 2022.

Now, I don’t know if we’re talking about something like an “EOS R7” or a camera(s) to take the place of the EOS M line.

Review: Canon EOS R3 by The Digital Picture

Review: Canon EOS R3 by The Digital Picture

By Canon Rumors | November 29, 2021 | Canon Reviews

Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the Canon EOS R3. Canon’s latest full-frame mirrorless camera which began shipping last week.

Bryan’s closing thoughts

With each new high-end camera iteration, it becomes more difficult to be happy with the newfound annoyances (additional steps or efforts required to get the same job done) of the older models, and the R3 brings out those inadequacies of the other models. The R3 has professional-grade build quality combined with arguably the best AF system ever placed in an interchangeable lens camera. The Eye Control AF, subject detection and tracking performance, Smart Controllers, and a myriad of other features give this camera a review-time advantage over all other models.

The performance of the Canon EOS R3 suggests flagship 1-series membership, and selecting the R3 over the 1D X Mark III is an easy choice. That the R3 is a 3-series model suggests that Canon has an even more impressive (and more expensive) model coming in the future. Read the full review
