There have been a few rumors since the launch of the EOS R that a Cinema EOS model would be coming to the mirrorless lineup. I haven't heard anything about such a camera for more than a year. That has changed this week, as it looks like we will see an “EOS R5c” in early 2022. I'm just calling it the R5C to keep things easy.
I have been told that the camera will have a slightly different body design than the EOS R5, likely to combat heat and some ergonomic changes.
The only other information the source knew is that it will definitely have internal ND's, Canon Log 2 and 3. The source wasn't sure which image sensor was going to be featured in the camera, so I don't know whether it's a 4K or 8K camera.
More to come…
(Of course, if it is a totally different design, then it probably won't give any clues).
Why would anyone spending this type of money, want a smaller S35 sensor over a true FF sensor (or larger)?
If this has no time limit recording and effective thermal management, could be an exciting camera.
