Back in July, we reported that Canon was working on a high-megapixel EOS R camera body and that two different sensors were being tested, one around 70mp and another over 80mp.
Yesterday we reported on a patent that shows an 83mp full-frame image sensor from Canon, which seems to give some credibility to the original report on the possible sensor resolution for the camera.
Over the last 24 hours, we have received a mini-flood of information about the coming camera that we dub the EOS RS (Canon may call it something different) and it’s likely going to replace the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R DSLRs.
The information below is based on a prototype the source claims to have had their hands on.
Rumored information about the EOS RS:
- A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
- 80mp full-frame image sensor
- A “new style” of joystick
- Larger LCD than the EOS R
- Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
- The “viewfinder” can be tilted up and down (We’re not sure if this was the LCD screen or the EVF, we have reached out for some clarification)
- Dual SD card slots
- No video specifications are known
This camera is expected to be announced some time in the first half of 2020.
