Canon Watch has followed up on its story about a video focused Canon EOS R camera. They have called it the EOS R5c, which is likely a placeholder. I'll just call it the ‘EOS Rc' for now.
It's now being reported that the EOS Rc will have a full-frame sensor of “about 11.25mp”. For the record, the soon-to-be-launched 4K capable Sony a7S III is 12.1mp.
To me, this looks like it could be the rumored Cinema EOS C50, which is expected to be announced sometime this year. Though the EOS C50 will use the Super35 sensor from the Cinema EOS C200.
I have not personally heard anything directly about an ‘EOS Rc', so please take this information with a big grain of salt.
Where have you seen “lackluster” stills performance? I know it’s 12mp, but what has been lackluster in performance?
And, of course, the other limitation would be recording past 29'59" in all modes.
For Instagram, 2 megapixels looks pretty good. I assume 12 megapixel looks fine printed up at 16x20. One of the 20x30s hanging in my house is from an 8 megapixel Canon from yesteryear.
Maybe with some improved heat dissipation design ...
This is supposedly a video-centric camera. Do the stills requirements of said target audience really exceed 12MP? Why?
This really isn't that different that the heat sinks on CPUs that either use fluid or sometimes just copper pipes to conduct heat away from the CPU to a fan a short distance away.
It is just a thought.
Right, but based on what lackluster performance? Not 12mp pictures but the camera ?
