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
- Price $5.999
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.
