Yes. “An EOS R system camera,” meaning a camera that’s part of the EOS R system, i.e., not an EOS M series camera or a DSLR, not a Cinema EOS camera, and not something brand new with a unique new lens mount.That may just be a poor choice of words. I think he is referring to the R series as a "system" and saying that a new R camera is coming to the system. Model or series might have been a better term.
While I doubt it would be very controversial, it would make sense for Canon to use the RF mount for specialty cameras going forward.Perhaps it's a camera with Canon's 1mp SPAD sensor which will be able to photograph a black cat in near total darkness , can auto focus at LV-15 , iso range from iso 100 up to iso 1,000,000,000,000
Handy for photographing bats in caves.
EOS - R zero
The people who claim every camera should have 10-bit 4:2:2 uncropped 4K at 60 FPS do not seem to realize that there are people who do not use video at all.Well no diss to those who do video but I think there's still a really big photography only market out there but the hybrid/video shooters are a lot more vocal.
The RP is still in the top 50 on Amazon and the top 20 on B & H.Very true and I wonder how well the RP sold and if Canon would have any useful data on what features of it was used most, such as 90% of owners not touching video for example. The DF was high priced and also had the vintage look so that could have easily played into the sales too. I'd definitely buy one as well but maybe one day...
I never thought about that.Nah. The way it'd work is that you still have to pay full price to get it, and *then* a monthly fee to keep it working, or to maintain some key functionality. Maybe it won't have memory cards at all but lots of built-in flash, but you can't upload photos to anywhere but Canon's site that costs...
-It doesn't have enough MP, useless for landscape and studio photography
-It has too many MP, so it's useless in low light and will be full of noise
-It doesn't have fast enough FPS, action photographers won't buy it
-It has too high FPS, so it will take days to sort through bazillions of images
-It has too many video features - going to cost too much for features stills only people don't need
-It doesn't have enough video features - hybrid shooters won't buy it because they'll still need a dedicated video cam
If it's an R7 type crop, the "there's no reason to have a crop sensor in R system" fanboys will yell
If it's a high res R5s type camera, the "low MP count has superior low-light and low noise" folks will scream
If it's the sub $1K FF cam, the "why did they leave out THIS or THAT feature which I use so everyone needs it" crowd will holler
If it's a video focused R5c type cam, the "Canon has forgotten us photographers again" crowd will be in an uproar
No matter what it is, the "Canon has lost their way, I'm jumping ship to Sony" crew will come out in droves...
So yeah, anyway, what I want is an R5s type camera, so that's obviously what most people want and clearly will be Canon's next release after the R3.
Not only that. Even when it came out (the 5DSR) it was more or less based on a 2012 body. They didn't really change much from the 5d mk III, except for the sensor and processor. So even when I bought it, I felt it was kind of behind the times. I love the resolution, but the camera would sure benefit from some newer technologies.Let's hope Canon updates this high Res body on a more frequent basis than every 7 years !!!
That would be my hope - Ironically, although I have a couple of R6 units, I just ordered the R5, which may be delivered on the day of the announcement! Go figure... Still, if it is at least 6 months before it reaches me in NZ, I can probably save my pennies...It's the 7D Mark III dslr, but with an RF mount
Oh like Adobe.....something we all are outraged over yet still use. HmmmmmmNah. The way it'd work is that you still have to pay full price to get it, and *then* a monthly fee to keep it working, or to maintain some key functionality. Maybe it won't have memory cards at all but lots of built-in flash, but you can't upload photos to anywhere but Canon's site that costs...
