Not that it would happen but a multi-line long term collaboration b/w CANON and RED would burn the segment down faster than a dozen R5s in death valley.
i'm on the list for a stormtrooper, and received my r5 on saturday. I don't konw how i'm going to explain this extra one to my wife. i haven't even told her i'm gonna buy the ST yet either....

had to sorta-sign-up a while ago, no idea what the requirements were but was surprised i was slotted one. i think the list is closed since a coupel weeks ago, so now have to wait for the production model. but given alto of people are still waiting fo teh ST gonna guess its not until later this year. probably this RF camera will come along long before.

Maybe it will look like the XC15 without a lens and with a built-in vertical grip which will help with cooling besides housing the two batteries (like with the GFX100).

With the crop sensor, it's going to undercut the Sony FX6 by quite some margin, it won't have much direct competition.

Camera size smaller than the EOS-1D X Mark III
Interesting if true.

I still want the full frame 4K variant in the smaller form factor, so this bodes well for future cinema bodies. Packing all that power into a smaller and lighter package is pretty exciting.

How would this camera compare to the current C200?
It's a much newer camera, so a big step up in technology (10-bit internal 4k120p recording to CFExpress cards) and portability (smaller and lighter) but a step down in handling and build (more internal ND, full-size XLR, SDI connection and a bigger battery on the C200)

EF-to-RF speed-booster not working on current RF bodies? Bummer; was looking forward to using it on the R5 in crop mode.

yeah i was wondering how they would make it so different that it woudln't work w/ another camera with teh same mount. Maybe has to do with some specific design relevant to the internal ND squeezed into a small area?

This sounds like the first small sized and (at least for me) affordable Cine camera. The R5 obviously can't do this to the full extent. So I'm very excited!

All I can say is wow! I just wrote my contact at my local shop to let them know that I am interested in purchasing. For video work this will be an amazing camera. As others have noted this is the first Cine camera that is affordable by my standards. I also really like the fact that is is rumored to use the same batteries as the R5. It will be great to have two separate systems using the same batteries! I just hope that it offers internal RAW recording like the C200.
