With the CP+ show out of the way, Canon will likely be focusing on the NAB 2023 show in Las Vegas, which starts on April 15, 2023.
Canon just announced the Canon EOS R8 and Canon EOS R50 camera bodies alongside the compact Canon RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and crop lens the Canon RF-S 55-210 f/5-7.1 IS STM. These camera announcements modernized the consumer side of the EOS R lineup.
Now it's time for Cinema EOS.
It has been a long time size Canon make a Cinema EOS splash with a new camera body and/or new technologies. We do think that a lot of new products were either delayed or reworked.
Here are the latest rumored new products for the Cinema EOS line-up that we think could be announced ahead of NAB in April.
- Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II
- Canon Cinema EOS C700 Mark II
- RF Mount Cinema Prime Lenses
We expect an RF mount to be the default mount on the Cinema EOS C200 Mark II.
With the success of the Canon Cinema EOS C70, there have been suggestions of a Cinema EOS C50 more recently, but we have been unable to confirm if this is new information, or recycled information from a couple of years ago.
Hopefully we get 24 T1.3 and 35 T1.3.
This will be a huge issue in the future. Canon needs the new buyers to support the system growth. We need to trust can has the ability and will to really get in a fight for a spot. They have the tech they just need to put it in their cameras. Do what Arri and red does. Put everything in the cameras and dominate.
I live the canon cine cameras but they have to do rf nount, ProRes internal, nd and SDI connections. Miss this and they will lose out.
Canon will never be a player in the high-end “Cine” camera world, en-mass, baring something just incredible and Earth shattering happening.
