I do must admit that you ARE correct that the #2 Delicate Detail Macro is BEST and really shows how good a smartphone could be. I was surprised how it came out. However, I do think Canon DOES have to worry because as other posters have said, it's a 2mm plastic lens over a tiny, tiny sensor!

Now IMAGINE a 2/3rd inch sensor or an APS-C sensor on a SMARTPHONE !!!

Combine THAT with high-end computational photography software and somebody like Sony with its VAAAAAST experience in smartphones would literally pound Canon into the sand on it's low end camera line!

---

Again, while these new ones aren't great shots, they DO illustrate what a 2mm lens on a crappy 1.3 micron photosite sensor can do! So I do must disagree in that I say that Canon is NOW treading a very fine line into almost irrelevance on the low-end and may be pounded by Sony in the High End!

So the WARNING to Canon, is to START bring out decent mirrorless cameras with the FULL SET of features espoused in MANY forums and start making a dent in the higher-end lens areas before Sigma grows its share even more than it already has with its Art Series of SUPER-SHARP lenses at reasonable prices!

It's Your Choice Canon!

The Market is Speaking Loudly and it is NOT in your favour right now!
Oh okay. You've resorted to 'kind of tongue-in-cheek but maybe you mean it' trolling. You always did spam these forums with nonsense, I shall pop you on my ignore list so as to be spared it in future.

Unfortunately it seems to be a non-Canon camera. If you read the comments on the flying cuckoo on his facebook, he says it is NOT a 1dx111, it is NOT a prototype Canon, it is NOT a D5; so maybe it is Sony or Panasonic; but Panasonic has just announced their flagship and it cannot do 30fps; so Sony then (A9 successor). Andy has changed systems before (Canon to Nikon and then back to Canon) so I will not be surprised. Or maybe he is just testing the new Sony and not changing systems? Who knows.... I still wish I had his job :)

Since Sony was mentioned, the current RX10 MkIV has 24fps and a 8.8-220mm f/2.4-4 lens (equivalent 24-600) so how about a Sony RX10 Mk V with a lens up to 300mm at f/4 and 30fps?

A 300mm f/4 on an RX10 is one of my dreams, if Zeiss could keep up the resolution. Actually, a new Canon 300mm f/4 is another dream.

... However a 4/3 sensor does not seem like a big deal to me however improved it is. I would rather use my "oldie but goody" 7D2 (or 5DsR) + 400 DO II as a portable setup combination.

Apples with orranges! A 7D2 (or the 50mpixel 5DsR which has the same pixel density) would make it an effective 1344mm. And an adaptor (if it exists) with Olympus would make it an effective 1680mm.

However, I understand the small size and the light weight benefits that's why I mentioned above the 400DOII lens as my favorite portable combination. It combines the best of both worlds.

Definitely not Canon gear
If you look at Andy's shots nowadays most of them are of the 'environmental' variety where fast action focussing and tracking are not essential - yes, he has the shot of a cuckoo in flight (in difficult circumstances!) but that is less his work nowadays. Also he is experienced enough to be able to get decently close to the animal which means that being large in the frame it will withstand being shown larger than most people will ever view it. And with subjects being large in the frame it also means that the Olympus could probably keep up with a fair bit of action work. Me? My fieldcraft is not too good which means that I rely on the camera AF to over a lot of incompetence and this is where (at the moment) Canon wins out for me. But I do like using the Pana/Oly kit at other times.

A Canon APS-C with a 32.5mpx sensor would have the same pixel density as a 20mpx micro4/3 to give the same reach and a wider field of view. A new Canon 90D with such a sensor would make a great partner for the current 100-400mm II.

It actually can shoot 30fps...it shoots 60fps without autofocus...so the Olympus OM-D E-M1X is likely the camera he's using.

Well, from my experience the "honeymoon" phase tends to pass. More so for those who play the field. Anyone enamoured with some new toy can make great claims and produce something to reinforce their claims. After all, all of us get lucky at times and we are not talking about poor quality gear in this case.

I think Andy may be in the mode of acting as an ambassador for the mystery camera manufacturer and providing hype very effectively, preceding coming out.;)

New olympus camera and 300f4 microfourthirds lense is very cool kit but i dont think i can pay 5500E
Canon knows how to make cheapest stuff ,i hope there will be like 2000E kit soon what can do as good autofocus what olympus camera +bird profile locking
and optically can beat zuiko 300 .
I dont care so much about fps . i am still so noob that i believe i can push shutter with right timing :p

I am going to stick my neck out and say it is going to be a digital version of the 35mm format EOS-1N RS camera:

184566


This was the last pellicle mirror camera that Canon made. It finished production around 2002. Canon have a tradition of making pellicle mirror cameras eg the Pellix line, going back many decades, and it arguably odd that they haven't offered a pellicle mirror design since 2002 given the number of patents they own in this area. Patents related to digital pellicle mirror designs have been found before. This will eliminate the mirror shock and allow faster frame rates.

The next prediction I am making is that the 1D successor may have a global shutter, thus eliminating the other shutter shock from the last key mechanical component left in cameras. Canon may have beaten Sony and Panasonic to market with the commercialisation of global shutter technology and are going to use the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to showcase their progress.

The incomplete evidence in this situation being an Instagram post which suggests a 30FPS camera.

After getting people all spun up, I’m going to laugh really hard if he’s playing with a prototype Sony a9ii.

BTW which rumors speak to the state of canon prototypes?
I'm 5 pages late to the party, so apologies if I post something redundant: Andy was asked on IG whether he was testing a Sony, which he denied.

But he's also stating that "it's not Canon kit" @Canon Rumors Guy
