Canon DSLR Rumors

A new Canon DSLR seems to be getting teased on social media by a Canon ambassador

Canon UK ambassador Andy Rouse has been active on Instagram apparently teasing a new camera body. I would think he’s not out using another company’s gear, so what could he be talking about?

He mentions using “new kit” and saying “I had to take the motor drive speed down from 30 fps to 5fps as I was taking too many sharp shots”

So what could he be teasing and/or testing? The obvious answer would be the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Andy was one of the early testers of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, so that’s not too much of a leap to assume. We were told back in February that testing had begun on the EOS-1D X Mark II replacement.

Is it possible that the EOS-1D X Mark III will shoot 30fps with the mirror locked up?

There’s also a possibility he’s testing out the new 32.5mp APS-C shooter that’s coming, but this is less likely. The mention of shooting stills at 30fps would probably be far too taxing for a 32.5mp APS-C camera, as the throughput required would be quite high. Although, it could be a lower megapixel feature to get the higher framerate while sacrificing resolution.

It could also be a new EOS R camera, as frame rate will likely be quite high on any sort of “professional” mirrorless body.

All of this could be much ado about nothing.

There is lots of discussion on our forum about Andy’s social media posts over the last week or so, you can check it out here.

In his tweet thread he specifically said this image was not taken with RF glass; he said none of the upcoming lenses are long enough.

I wonder if it’s either a new 300 f/2.8 or 500 f/4...

No matter what he's been using, this is a perfect picture.
Well, I was lying :eek:, it does matter...
Looking at the diffuse background, it sure was a long telephoto lens, EF 500 f.5,6:love: ???

There is essentially no background so how can you say it is a long telephoto 500/5.6?
 

Kit.

There is no background, nor is there any way to judge how distant is the background.
There is a very smooth 4-5 centimeter (to the scale of the cuckoo) bokeh of something that looks like thin branches. Can be a DS lens.

This thread is about new kit. You’re the old kit. What gives?

Yes maybe a 1DXIII.
I’m really interested in what that camera will be. It perhaps will be the last great DSLR

So it looks like it’s a camera. Andy posted two more images, as seen below. He puts some exif data along with them, such as the focal length of the lens and aperture/shutter speed, etc.

Okay, now I think it’s a mirror less camera!
