Canon is gearing up for a big 2020 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | September 30, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re not going to see any more major product announcements from Canon in 2019, outside of the official announcement of the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, which we expect in the next month or two, with the availability of the new lens coming in December.

We have been told that Canon has a major announcement planned on or around February 11, 2020, which would come ahead of CP+, which begins at the end of February.

A second source said “your readers should start getting excited for Photokina”, which is happening in May. Unfortunately, that was all we were told and we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out what is possibly coming.

We expect both the high-megapixel EOS R body and EOS-1D X Mark III to be announced in the first half of 2020, along with a lot of new RF mount lenses.

Here is a short list of unreleased Canon gear from certification agencies

Here is a short list of unreleased Canon gear from certification agencies

By Canon Rumors | September 26, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Nokishita has posted known and unreleased Canon gear, for the moment the list is pretty short.

Unreleased Canon gear:

  • DS586191 (DS586192 / DS586193 / DS586194)
  • Wireless file transmitter
    • Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11a / b / g / n / ac) compatible
  • Interchangeable lenses:
    • 3450C005AA (RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM)
    • 3792C005AA (RF 85mm f/1.2L DS USM)

Some sites are stating that the DS586191 is the EOS-1D X Mark III, it is not. The EOS-1D X Mark III likely won’t have internal wifi capabilities, therefore wouldn’t need to get wifi certification. Secondly, Canon DSLR product codes begin with “DSC”, not “DS”.

We have some more information coming soon to address new gear and when we can expect to see the next major announcements from Canon.

Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III is the next cinema camera coming [CR2]

Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III is the next cinema camera coming [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | September 24, 2019 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

2019 has been a quiet year for Canon’s Cinema EOS lineup, with only the announcement of the long-awaited Cinema EOS C500 Mark II.

We have been told that the next cinema camera from Canon will be the Cinema EOS C300 Mark III. However, the information we’ve received about this camera contradicts what we were told previously.

The new information says the C300 Mark III will remain a 4K Super35 camera, but with a more modular design like we see with the C500 Mark II. There will be no 8K version of the camera like previously reported according to this source.

Now about 8K, a separate source claims that Canon will announce some kind of 8K offering in 2020, but that this camera will be “built to order” and not a retail consumer product.

As for a follow-up to the Cinema EOS C100 Mark II, we have been told a few times that there will be no direct replacement for that camera.

Patent: Canon RF mount modular CINE camera appears in drawings

Patent: Canon RF mount modular CINE camera appears in drawings

By Canon Rumors | September 20, 2019 | Canon Patents

An RF mount cinema camera of some kind is likely an inevitable evolution in Canon’s ecosystem when such a camera will appear is unknown at this time. I imagine the lens lineup needs to be a bit bigger before we see this sort of camera come to market.

Canon News has uncovered a patent that shows such a camera in great detail. The patent itself is related to reducing the size of the forced air cooling smaller and more efficient, therefore reducing the size of the camera.

As you’ll see below, the technical drawings for this camera are quite detailed. It shows a very modular camera design, it looks to be about the size of the XC series of cameras. We believe the Cinema EOS lineup will be moving to more modular designs as we’ve seen in the recent EOS C500 Mark II.
