By Canon Rumors | July 8, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Here are more (no video information) specifications for the Canon EOS R6.

Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

● Equipped with a full-size CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of approximately 20.10 million pixels, which is customized based on the sensor equipped with “EOS-1D X Mark III”. High image quality and high-speed continuous shooting are achieved by the high-speed signal readout of the CMOS sensor, high-speed processing of the new video engine “DIGIC X”, and high-performance “RF lens”.
● When shooting with the electronic shutter, high-speed continuous shooting of up to about 20 frames/second is achieved with AF/AE tracking. You can shoot without worrying about the shutter sound in scenes such as facing wild animals and playing golf.
● When shooting with the mechanical shutter/electronic front curtain, high-speed continuous shooting of up to approximately 12 frames/sec.
● AF performance is improved as “dual pixel CMOS AF II” by high-speed signal readout of the new CMOS sensor and high-speed processing of new image engine. When “Face + Tracking priority AF” is set, the distance measurement area is expanded to a maximum of approximately 100% (vertical) x maximum 100% (horizontal) of the screen. Furthermore, when shooting still images, the AF frame is automatically selected from a maximum of 1053 divided areas.
● Supports the detection of human eyes, faces, and heads. Compared with “EOS R”, the detection performance of smaller eyes and profile is improved. In addition, it can detect the eyes, face, and the whole body of animals (dogs/cats/birds) to improve the capture rate of subjects.
● Achieved the EV-6.5 low-brightness focus limit for the first time in the EOS series. Achieves highly accurate focusing even in a dark environment where it is difficult for the naked eye to see the subject.
●High-speed AF of up to approximately 0.05 seconds is achieved by optimizing the drive control of “Dual Pixel CMOS AF II” and “RF lens”.
● Uses the AF algorithm installed in the “EOS-1D X Mark III”. Comfortable shooting with “Case 1 to 4”, which are preset with “subject tracking characteristics” and “trackability against speed changes” according to the scene, and “Case A (Auto)” that automatically switches according to the subject Realized.
● The CMOS sensor reduces noise and the image engine improves noise reduction performance, achieving a standard ISO sensitivity of up to 102400 when shooting still images.
● Supports still image/video recording in the “HDR PQ” method based on human visual characteristics. HEIF (10bit) recording that was done with RAW development software is realized in the camera.
● “Face lighting correction” is newly added to the auto writing optimizer function during RAW development. When the contrast of the face is high, it is possible to automatically correct the brightness of the face.
● “Strength” is added to the “Digital Lens Optimizer” that corrects lens aberrations.
● The built-in high-definition electronic viewfinder (EVF) with approximately 100% field of view that employs an organic EL panel with approximately 3.69 million dots. By setting the display frame rate to “119.88fps (smoothness priority)”, it is easier to chase moving objects.
●For the first time in the EOS series, a correction mechanism that moves the image sensor in response to camera shake is adopted in the body. Achieves in-body image stabilization with 5 axes: horizontal rotation axis/vertical rotation axis/rotation axis/left/right/up/down. Even with a lens that does not have an image stabilizer, you can shoot comfortably from wide-angle to telephoto, depending on the combination of camera and lens.
● The world’s highest 8.0-stop image stabilization is achieved by the coordinated control of the optical image stabilization mechanism on the lens side and the in-body image stabilization mechanism. Comfortable shooting is possible even in shooting environments where camera shake is likely to occur, such as telephoto shooting and handheld shooting.
●When shooting movies, in addition to the coordinated control of the camera shake correction mechanism inside the body and lens, it is also possible to use a movie electronic IS together.
● 4K/60P video is achieved by oversampling without cropping, enabling delicate video expression with reduced moire and noise that cause image quality degradation.
● Full HD/120P high frame rate video for smooth video expression.
● When shooting 4K/Full HD, smooth AF with “Dual Pixel CMOS AF II” is possible.
● Equipped with Canon’s original Log-Gamma “Canon Log”, which has a proven track record in video production equipment “CINEMA EOS SYSTEM”. By gently suppressing the crushing of dark areas and highlight highlights, it is possible to record videos with a high degree of freedom in editing and processing after shooting.
● Supports Wi-Fi/Bluetooth(R) connection to mobile devices such as smartphones.
● Equipped with an automatic image transfer function from the camera to “image.canon”. You can automatically transfer still images to “Google Photos” or “Adobe Creative Cloud” (membership plan) via “image.canon”.
● Equipped with a shutter unit that has achieved shutter durability of 300,000 actuations. You can choose to open or close the shutter curtain when the power is off.
● A dustproof and drip-proof structure is adopted to prevent water droplets and sand dust from entering the camera. In addition, a lightweight and highly rigid polycarbonate resin is used for the exterior, achieving both reliability and mobility.
● Equipped with dual slots for SD memory cards (UHS-II compatible).
● Equipped with a multi-controller that allows intuitive AF frame selection.

UK pricing leaks for the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6

UK pricing leaks for the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6

By Canon Rumors | July 8, 2020 | Canon Business General

Pricing on the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 has been tough to nail down with 100% certainty, but it does look like the rumored pricing from earlier is going to hold true.

According to UK retailers, pricing will be as follows:

This goes with yesterday’s UK pricing leaks on the upcoming RF mount lenses.

Please remember that doing straight currency conversions isn’t going to tell you the pricing in your country.

The Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping on July 30, 2020

The Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping on July 30, 2020

By Canon Rumors | July 8, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

According to Nokishita, the Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping in late July in Japan, and on July 30 in the United States. There was no mention of a European release date, but you can be pretty sure that it will hit that market around the same time.

It’s also reported that the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM will also begin shipping in late July.

The ship date for the RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Macro has not been mentioned as of yet.

Two other previously rumored lenses, the RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM and RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM are likely going to be some kind of a development announcement and will begin shipping later in 2020.

I have been told that the Canon EOS R6 will begin shipping on or around August 27, 2020.

The ship date for the Canon EOS R6 is currently unknown.

Update: I have updated the article to reflect the shipping date for the Canon EOS R6

Here are the Canon BG-R10 Battery Grip, Canon WFT-R10 Wifi Grip & LP-E6NH Battery

Here are the Canon BG-R10 Battery Grip, Canon WFT-R10 Wifi Grip & LP-E6NH Battery

By Canon Rumors | July 7, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Canon is releasing two new grips for the Canon EOS R5 and likely the Canon EOS R6, but I cannot confirm the compatibility of these two grips.

The new LP-E6NH keeps the same Canon shape you’re used to, as well as compatibility with older batteries. The new battery is said to have a big bump in capacity.
