We mentioned previously that four new full-frame cameras were coming from Canon in 2020, and we now know two of them are the EOS-1D X Mark III and the EOS R5. The third camera looks to be the EOS R6, as we received base specifications for the upcoming mirrorless camera.
Canon EOS R6 Specifications:
- 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
- 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
- 4K @ 60p
- New battery (Not sure if it's the same as the EOS R5)
- June 2020 launch (We think a May announcement)
We'll update you once we hear more
Times are good!!!
This is a lot more believable than the R5 specs, at least.
Will the future be:
And a relatively modest 20 MP sensor in a 20 fps (we presume not gripped) body as the entry price point spec on that list?
So R1 ..... the heavyweight truepro body? R5 is the new 5D and R6 is entry level full frame aka 6D..... R7 for sports?
And if it's a true 7D II MILC with the AF, dual card and bulletproof body...... I'll have two pls and a LOT of RF glass.
So say you. RP lacks IBIS and sure as hell can't pop 12 / 20 fps.
R5 feels like the 5D5.
R6 feels like the 6D3.
RP may have been an inexpensive platform bugzapper to draw folks in to the platform. Perhaps RP and the original R will die out now once the more familiar hierarchy I posted above gets released.
Oh no, Cat said Voldemort.
Birders will have kittens over that one.
So follow my very loose tea leaf assembly here. If an R5 is coming with the specs from the rumor, and this R6 is happening...
I feel pretty good in thinking our familiar product lines in 1 / 5S (res) / 5 (all-around) / 6 and possibly 7 are happening with an R in front.
And if THAT happens, where does EOS R or RP fit in that scheme? One might argue that neither do, and we might not see R2 or RP2 happen.
If anything, these specs say "7DIII" minus the crop sensor . . . and if it is, I think there may never be an APS-C R :oops: Or, the rumor is wrong and this isn't a full-frame camera . . .
Sure it could. Tell every 6D2 owner that their new camera will come with all of the following upgrades:
I bet you'd sell a bunch of cameras. Not all users would take that camera, but many would.
At the below RP pricepoint....? Oh it will sell a LOAD of cameras. It's an introduction FF so why not 20MP?
Probably taken out the back and quietly shot.
Oooops I invoked the Unholy Name of Sony unwittenly....... Umm... Canon is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED?
(Altho if lets say the guess is right and the R7 IS a APS-C sports camera...... just imagine the M6 II's sensor spiced up with a DIGICX and cut down 1D mkIII liveview AF performance. Twin card slots, 7D II style budgeon people strong body - I reckon not just birders would lose their damn minds. It's not like that's a pie in the sky wish list, that IS a likely to be seen camera)
(and hopefully an R7)
If the rest of the specs are to be believed (sans that one), I buy it. If it's a full frame camera, with low MP and medium-high FPS, it doesn't fit anywhere within the current schema, unless it's also a low-light monster (and, therefore, an a7s competitor). Hmmmmmmmm.
