Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark II equivalent mirrorless is coming sooner than originally thought [CR1]

Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark II equivalent mirrorless is coming sooner than originally thought [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | June 24, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We have been told that Canon has “accelerated” development of the “pro” level EOS R camera, and we’re not talking about the high-resolution model that we expect to see in late 2019 or early 2020.

This new camera will be along the lines of a mirrorless version of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II (or III).

The source also mentioned that it is possible this camera could be announced alongside the EOS-1D X Mark III in the first or second quarter of 2020. Though the date of the announcement is a long way from being decided.

Announcing these two cameras together would be a unique move for Canon, and while I think it’s possible, I suspect we’ll see a development announcement for the EOS-1R X (as I feel like calling it) well before the actual camera ships.

An EOS R professional body with some new RF super-telephoto lenses at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics next July could be a great time for the launch of pro-level EOS R and RF mount gear.

The RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS is coming soon

The RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS is coming soon

By Canon Rumors | June 21, 2019 | Canon Lens Rumors

It looks like the next RF lens to hit the market will be the RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS, a lens that will be highly desirable to Canon EOS R shooters.

The RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS will come kitted with the Canon EOS RP body as well, which is a likely pair for a lot of shooters.

Pricing for the lens and EOS RP kit have yet to leak.

Along with the lens and kit, lens hood EW-78F is also coming.

Patent: Switchable 1.4x & 2.0x teleconverter

Patent: Switchable 1.4x & 2.0x teleconverter

By Canon Rumors | June 20, 2019 | Canon Patents

A patent showing a new style of teleconverter from Canon has appeared at the Japanese Patent Office this week and translated by Canon News.

Canon is showing off a teleconverter that can switch between 1.4x and 2.0x, which would be a great way to increase the usability, flexibility and efficiency of using teleconverters.

If you’re on location with both Canon teleconverters, it adds to the risk of dust getting inside the camera body. If you’re switching between 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters, you may also miss the shot.

Adding teleconverters to big lenses increases the size, weight and bulk of lenses as well, so simply putting built-in teleconverters into every super telephoto lens probably isn’t the answer either. Canon has been working very hard to reduce the size and weight of their big white lenses.

I couldn’t figure out in this patent if you could also switch to 1.0x, so you could, in theory, leave the teleconverter attached to your favourite lens if you so desired.

Is the Canon EOS C500 Mark II finally coming in 2019? [CR1]

Is the Canon EOS C500 Mark II finally coming in 2019? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | June 18, 2019 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We’ve been told that Canon will finally announce a successor to the Cinema EOS C500 cinema camera. A camera that never really had a market, and is one of the few sales failures of the Cinema EOS lineup.

We’ve been told that the Cinema EOS C500 Mark II was shown to a very select group of dealers at NAB 2019 back in April, with a potential launch coming sometime in 2019.

We have reported that a new Cinema EOS camera was coming this year, but signs had pointed to a Cinema EOS C300 Mark III being the camera we’d see. There is a chance we see both.

Additionally, the source says that the C500 Mark II will be a “completely different take” as far as Cinema EOS cameras go. We’re not sure what that means, but it could be exciting.
