I did an interview with Simon from the Ordinary Filmmaker YouTube channel yesterday. We talked a bit about the history of Canon Rumors as well as the EOS R5, EOS R6, and other Canon gear.
I apologize that my audio isn't great, as the external microphone I had refused to work with any level of reliability.
Sounds like you might want the rumored 20megapixels R6. While not officially pre-announced like the R5, it seems to be so close to be official, that it is almost not a rumour anymore.
I eagerly await Canon's lower cost R6, video-groundbreaking R5, and especially the possible stills-leaning 85?MP R(whatever). Since they've still got some time for that last one, maybe they could add Arca-Swiss quick-release grooves on the bottom edges and be the first one ever (that I know of) to do so?
Thanks again for this website - Well done!
This is one of the reasons I refresh Craig's site several times a day waiting for announcements. The R6 is in stealth mode. We have had two official news drops on the R5, and very little on the R6. Can't wait :)
thanks for doing this! And yes the R6 is also on my short list. I have an EOS R now which I really love (apart from the touchbar). But I’m very interested to see if the R6 will produce full
Frame 4K readouts like the DX3 with CLOG 10 bit 422 out. I’d look to buy it just for that. High frames rates would be nice but I dont really expect 4k120 on it. 1080p 120 would be nice enough with a standard 4k range of 24/30 and perhaps even 60. Working in that heavy 1.75crop on the EOS R can be cumbersome. Even a 1.3x crop like my DX2 would be fine. Problem is the DX2 cant send that 4k out over hdmi. R6 could really be a fantastic, light weight, basic video camera.

A complicated/dangerous question. I'm not sure I dare answer in general terms :)
However, since it apparently will have a 20megapixels sensor like the 1DXIII, I guess there's a good chance it uses the exact same sensor as the 1DXIII.
A cool interview, Craig letting slip exactly what he wants to be known whilst also protecting the valuable sources of leaks that make this site what it is. His short and sometimes teasingly abrupt answers all add to the mystery and rumours that fuel these forums here and make the site the valued and highly respected place it has become in the industry.
I found it particularly interesting what Craig said re the new kit I’ll be keen on obtaining the R6 and the up and coming 2 new EOS M bodies.
