A new report from our friend at Photo Rumors has Sony bringing a “pro” mirrorless body in the first quarter of 2021. This would be a huge deal for Canon shooters waiting for an EOS R1, a camera I do think HAS to come from Canon in 2021.
The ‘pro’ designation on a camera body means it has an integrated grip to house a much bigger battery. It also gives more space inside the camera to add higher end cooling solutions and ergonomics.
Rumored Sony Pro Body Specifications:
Bigger and truly pro body
9.44M dots EVF
Newly developed sensor
8K video recording with no overheating
Dual card slots
New menu systems from A7S3
IBIS with Steady shot active mode
Everything about this camera is new
It was also reported that there are some of these pro Sony bodies out in the wild. Sadly, I haven’t heard anything specific about the Canon EOS R1.
