Canon U.S.A. Inc., to Provide 120 EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lenses for Expansion of the Dragonfly Telephoto Array Project

Canon U.S.A. Inc., to Provide 120 EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lenses for Expansion of the Dragonfly Telephoto Array Project

By Canon Rumors | November 22, 2021 | Industry News

Canon USA continues to dabble in space projects along with Canon Inc.  Canon USA is sending Project Dragonfly 120 Canon RF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lenses. Project Dragonfly is an international research team consisting of Yale University and the University of Toronto researchers.

About Project Dragonfly

The Dragonfly Telephoto Array is a novel telescope concept designed to image large and extremely faint structures in the night sky. These structures hold important clues to the distribution and nature of dark matter, the elusive substance whose contribution to the total mass-energy density of the Universe is five times higher than that of normal matter. These structure are hard to see with conventional telescopes due to a combination of scattered light from bright stars and their mosaicked detectors. Dragonfly harnesses the power of commercially-available high-end telephoto lenses to address these issues. The latest generation of Canon 400 mm f/2,8 lenses have superb anti-reflection properties, owing to one of the first applications of nano-fabricated coatings with sub-wavelength structures on optical glasses.

Vehicle AF and more coming to the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 in December firmware update

Vehicle AF and more coming to the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 in December firmware update

By Canon Rumors | November 16, 2021 | Canon Firmware

I reported a couple of weeks ago that we’d be getting new firmware for the Canon EOS R5 sometime around the Canon EOS R3 ship date of November 26, 2021. This release has now been confirmed along with new firmware for both the Canon EOS R6 and Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.

One of the new features for the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 is “vehicle” AF mode. The EOS-1D X Mark III will not get this feature. The Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 will also receive updates to eye and face detection AF.

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will receive an update to head detection AF.

Another worthwhile new feature for the EOS R5 and EOS R6 is “SMOOTH EVF” when shooting in dark situations and the framerate of the EVF isn’t ideal.

The firmware updates will be available on December 2, 2021.

Press Release

London, United Kingdom, 16th November 2021 – Canon Europe today announces firmware updates for the EOS R5 (firmware v1.50), EOS R6 (firmware v1.50) and EOS-1D X Mark III (firmware v1.60). Following the recent launch of the EOS R3, a powerhouse for sport and reportage photography, Canon bolsters its professional range of cameras with enhanced detection, seamless file transfer and optimized support for lenses.

Unrivalled detection for subject tracking

Across both the EOS R5 and EOS R6, this update delivers enhanced recognition of subjects. Users of these cameras are now able to select “vehicles” as the main subject. Inheriting this abilty from the EOS R3, the cameras can track racing cars and bikes. The update also enhances the overall AF tracking of people, with improved eye and face detection even when the subject is wearing a mask, as well as adding body detection. Strengthening detection within the EOS-1D X Mark III for winter sports, the firmware provides improved head detection for subjects wearing goggles and helmets.

Simplified operation for streamlined workflows

For professional photographers, their camera needs to operate as an extension of them, with seamless and intuitive functionality to help them capture the shot. This upgrade gives EOS R5 and EOS R6 owners the ability to set a custom white balance in Live View, streamlining manual white balance control. Across all models, the firmware ensures that photographers aren’t able to mistakenly transfer files by pressing the multi-controller when “Transfer with SET” is set for FTP transfer. Previously, the EOS-1D X Mark III employed separate buttons for voice memo and image rating, but with newly added settings users can use one button to do both functions simultaneously.

Enhanced support for lenses

As the RF lens range continues to grow, photographers are able to unlock new possibilities with their cameras. Thanks to this latest update, the EOS R5 is now compatible with Canon’s EOS VR SYSTEM and the RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens, enabling content creators to easily capture immersive footage for virtual reality. The update also offers full-time manual support for the RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM, even if AF is selected.

The EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III firmware updates will be available to download from 2nd December 2021 from local online support centres:

New information about the upcoming Canon EOS R5C [CR3]

New information about the upcoming Canon EOS R5C [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | November 10, 2021 | Canon EOS Rumors

The Canon EOS R5c has been rumored for quite some time now, and I expect to see it sometime in 2022. Information about the EOS R5c has been lacking for the last little while, but things are starting to heat up.

Canon EOS R5C Information

  • Canon Log 3
  • Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
  • Unlimited 8K30P recording in Cinema RAW Light. XF-AVC and MP4
  • Timecode in/out
  • The same multipurpose hot shoe as the EOS R3. Which will work with accessories such as the Tascam XLR module.
  • Active cooling
  • 3/8″ or 1/4″ mounting point on the EVF for a top handle that won’t interfere with the hot shoe.
  • Full-size HDMI Port
  • The LCD has been moved further back to accommodate the cooling fan. So this likely means that it won’t recess into the body like the Canon EOS R5.

The Canon EOS R5c was originally rumoured to be coming in Q1 of 2022, I am unsure at this time if that timeline is still accurate.
