Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

There is another RF mount camera coming in 2020 [CR2]

I have been told by a pretty reliable source that Canon will announce another RF mount camera in 2020. What exactly the camera is, I was not privy to at this time.

I do not believe it’s an EOS R system camera, but an RF mount video camera. I also don’t know if this is a totally new product, or if it’s an adapted Cinema EOS camera that is currently available.

I believe we may see an announcement for this camera during the last week of August, or the first week of September ahead of when IBC 2020 is scheduled to happen.

More to come…

I think it is a new product, the 12-pin communication interface is different compared to the EF-mount.
Maybe the XC-series camera that was a rumoured a few times...?

With a crop sensor, it would be able to take Metabones Speed Booster or the V-ND adapter as well.

Fingers crossed for:
- XC-10/15 style body
- R5 internals
- RF mount instead of an attached lens

~$4500 and then YouTube can. shut. up. about. video.
YES. Exactly. XC-15 with R5 internals (or R6 with All-I, only 4K needed), XLR adapter, Internal ND, TIMECODE, Super35 sensor (can’t imagine it would be full frame and crush C300/C500), IBIS.

a small C100 RF cinema camera. Done.

I would imagine that both the updated sensor with a faster readout would go with a new C-series body. This won't just be a mount change, as it would not make sense to utilize this new technology.

I would buy the above list. This would be a damn near perfect camera

Would actually love for it to not be a crop. If a "consumer" 45mp sensor can outperform a C500FF then somebody is gonna do it; might as well disrupt yourself before somebody else does. I'm under the impression that the C3/500 have a huge set of features that simply require those sorts of large bodies and astronomical prices. I don't think that anyone short of ARRI is going to be able to command these $25-50K prices for much longer.

If anything I think you're more likely to see some wild sensor formats, but without things like ND, timecode and SDI—specifically to differentiate the true cinema line. But I mean a little baby C200 with a 4K S35 sensor would be nice for sure.

Could it be an RF mount Cine camera? Hmmm, Canon has a line of EF-mount Cine lenses to go with their EF-mount Cine cameras. making an RF-mount Cine camera before they have RF Cine lenses seems weird, unless they expect users to adapt EF glass.

I think it’s safe to expect an 8K Cine camera soon. When Apple showcased the Mac Pro, they used an 8K footage from an unreleased Canon Cine camera.

There is no difference at all in performance with or without an adapter for autofocus canon lenses (in some cases with an adapter on RF is actually faster than native EF) - so there definitely wont be a difference with manual focus cine lenses. I see no reason why adapting would be a problem for anyone and I am sure Canon will one day implement native RF lenses. So, I see no reason why this cant happen today.
