A BSI APS-C EOS R camera is coming in the second half of 2022 [CR2]

A BSI APS-C EOS R camera is coming in the second half of 2022 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | September 27, 2021 | Canon EOS Rumors

Ever since the launch of the original Canon EOS R, there has been a burning question as to whether or not Canon would be bringing an APS-C RF mount camera to consumers.

Over the last few years, there have been sporadic reports that this is going to happen eventually.

I have now been told by a good source that Canon will definitely be bringing an APS-C RF mount camera equipped with a backside-illuminated sensor in the second half of 2022.

I have also been told that this new BSI APS-C sensor will appear in more than one camera. The resolution of the sensor is unknown at this time, but I think something in the area of 28mp-32mp is quite likely.

While we wait for Canon to make available the manual and white paper for the Canon EOS R3, they have provided this thorough interactive PDF for the king of Canon’s mirrorless lineup.

The Canon EOS R3 is expected to begin shipping near the end of November 2021. The first round of shipments likely won’t fulfill all of the preorders, as the camera has proved to be quite popular amongst shooters just going by the preorder numbers.

What’s next for the Canon Cinema EOS line

What’s next for the Canon Cinema EOS line

By Canon Rumors | September 23, 2021 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

Things have been relatively quiet in the Cinema EOS space from Canon, as they marketed the heck out of the Canon EOS R3 for the last many months.

There was an expectation that Canon would make a big splash at NAB 2021, but that show has been cancelled and won’t return until April 23-27, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This change may have an impact on when Canon announces new Cinema EOS gear.

Dan Havlik at Digital Photo Pro had the chance to interview Jeff Cable, probably the most talked-about Canon shooter at the Tokyo Olympic Games for his work with the Canon EOS R3.

Jeff gives a pretty glowing review of the Canon EOS R3 experience, but without the marketing speak, as there were a few things such as the eye-controlled AF that didn’t hit the mark all of the time.

Preorder: Canon EOS R3 Body

Q: How was the Eye Control Autofocus (AF) feature on the R3?

Jeff Cable: Eye Control worked well but there were some environments where it was more effective for me. I tried it a couple of times at press conferences, and it was great. For instance, when Katie Ledecky is standing in front of me and I want her face in focus, Eye Control AF made it easy to lock-in.

During some sports though, the Eye Control AF wasn’t locking in fast enough for what I wanted, so I turned it off and went to back-button focus. Mostly though, I didn’t have time the learn it well enough to use it during the Olympics. I’d like to spend more time experimenting with it. It’s something I’m dying to use for my event photography.

Like myself, I do wonder why the Canon EOS R3 isn’t dual CFExpress slots. I think the market that will buy this camera is ok with spending more on fast memory cards.

Q: What’s the one thing you liked least about the R3?

Jeff Cable: The SD Card slot is slow. I was shooting RAW plus JPEG to both the CFexpress card and the SD card since I couldn’t easily open the R3’s RAW files yet and needed the JPEGs. Some people don’t know this but shooting RAW plus JPEG slows the camera down more than shooting two RAWs because the camera has to process the image twice.

Q: What’s one thing that surprised you about the R3?

Jeff Cable: I like that you can turn on a simulated noise that makes the R3 sound like it has a DSLR shutter. The R5 and R6 don’t have that. I wanted that audible feedback. With the R3, you can go completely silent and it’s a little disconcerting to a DSLR shooter, especially because there’s no blackout. On the other hand, if I’m shooting a Bar Mitzvah or a wedding, I don’t want that sound so I can turn it off and go completely stealth.

It looks like Canon may have one more lens to announce in 2021. They have registered a new and unreleased lens, with the product code 5554C005AA.

The latest Canon lenses to be announced the RF 16mm f/2.8 STM has the product code 5051C005 and the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM is the 5050C005.

I don’t know for sure which lens is being registered here, but if I had to wager a guess based on the Canon Rumors RF lens roadmap, I’d go with an RF 35mm f/1.2L USM. Again, that’s just a guess!

I would think a 35L would definitely create enough hype to be announced on its own.

Gordon Laing from CameraLabs gives his first reviews of the new Canon gear, including the EOS R3

By Canon Rumors | September 14, 2021 | Canon Business General

After watching far too much YouTube this AM, I came to the conclusion that Gordon Laing’s first reviews of Canon’s newest gear should give you all you need to know about the EOS R3, RF 16mm f/2.8 STM, and RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM.

These reviews are the first of what will likely be a few more in the future from Gordon.
