Canon will release the EOS Ra astrophotography camera

Canon will release the EOS Ra astrophotography camera

By Canon Rumors | September 18, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Back in June, we reported about the possibility of a dedicated astrophotography EOS R system camera coming from Canon in late 2019.  It turns out such a camera may, in fact, be coming in 2020.

According to the source, they were told that a “Canon EOS Ra” has appeared on an internal Canon roadmap for 2020. The only time the “a” is used in Canon ILC camera models has been for the EOS 20Da and the EOS 60Da, which leads us to believe we will definitely be seeing a dedicated astrophotography camera.

No specifications are known at this time, as only the model name has appeared on the internal document. There is however a chance that the model name is an internal codename for a different camera.

Update: Canon themselves have mentioned the Canon EOS Ra in an EOS R leaflet on one of their official sites. You can download the leaflet here.

The leaflet states:

  • The EOS Ra is a version of the EOS R designed for astrophotography. This camera has approximately four times the transmittance of hydrogen-alpha light (656 nm) as the EOS R. Photographs of subjects that reflect a lot of infrared light will therefore appear redder than they actually are. Also, as it may not be possible to obtain an appropriate color balance or uneven colors may result, shooting normal subjects with this camera is not recommended. ..
  • Camera operations are essentially the same as for the EOS R. Refer to the included EOS R Getting Started Guide (booklet). Additionally, you can download the EOS R Advanced User Guide (PDF file) from the Canon website.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is coming in 2020

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is coming in 2020

By Canon Rumors | September 17, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’ve confirmed from a very solid source one of the worst kept secrets for 2020, that Canon will announce the EOS-1D X Mark III. The same source gave us a few tidbits of information about what could possibly be coming in the new flagship DSLR.

  • It’s likely the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will shoot 6K video without a crop.
  • Dual CFExpress cards are in the prototype models and will likely make it to the production version.
  • There will be a “significant jump in resolution for an EOS-1 series camera”.  The EOS-1D X was 18.1mp and the EOS-1D X Mark II came in at 20.2mp. So I guess anything over a 2mp bump could be considered “significant” to some.
  • New DIGIC processor. Canon doesn’t usually introduce a new DIGIC processor in the EOS-1D series, but that will apparently change this time.
  • IBIS is in prototype cameras

We weren’t given an idea on when we could expect an announcement, but we’ll update you as soon as someone sheds some light on that.

Canon EOS R “One YEAR Later” REVIEW…does it hold up?

By Canon Rumors | September 17, 2019 | Canon EOS R

Jared Polin gives his thoughts on the Canon EOS R a year later and Canon’s full-frame mirrorless future.

On September 26, 2019, Canon will be releasing the new v1.4.0 firmware for the EOS R, which should add some goodies for a lot of shooters. I think the EOS R was a good first step, but I agree with Jared, they need to do more with the bodies to close the perceived gap with Sony.

2020 will be a huge year, so sit tight Canon shooters.

By Canon Rumors | September 14, 2019 | Canon Patents

It’s no surprise anymore that IBIS is coming to future EOS R cameras, and possibly a Canon DSLR. This patent is an extremely detailed view of Canon’s IBIS unit. It looks like the technology is ready to go.

Canon News breaks down this particular patent:

They are looking to create high efficiency in the movement force, and to improve the linearity of the magnetic circuit for position detection.  Both of which are important to moving a large full-frame sensor quickly and with a high degree of accuracy.

Below is an exploded view of the IBIS unit found in Japan Patent Application 2019-152785.

Canon EOS M200 coming soon

Canon EOS M200 coming soon

By Canon Rumors | September 13, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

As previously reported, Canon will announce a replacement to the entry-level EOS M100 soon according to Nokishita.

No specifications have leaked out for the little EOS M camera, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep the same 24mp image sensor as the EOS M50, with the EOS M50 replacement getting the new 32.5mp image sensor that recently appeared in the new EOS M6 Mark II and EOS 90D. Here’s hoping we do get surprised and Canon brings the new sensor to the entry-level EOS M camera.
