I have been told that Canon still has plans to release a slew of new video products in 2021. These cameras sell in lower numbers than consumer cameras, so production may not suffer from the same volume issues in the supply chain.

New specifications for the cameras below have been hard to come by, as most of these cameras have had their launch delayed. There may not be the usual rumor cycle this year.

Canon XF505

  • Replacement for the XF205
  • Same 1″ sensor as the XF705
  • 12G-SDI output and SD cards
  • An integrated zoom lens with 15x zoom
  • BP-A batteries

Canon XC20

  • Replacement for the XC10/XC15
  • Same 1″ sensor as the XF705
  • CFexpress slot for internal RAW recording
  • SD cards for XF-AVC/MP4 recording
  • An integrated lens with 10x zoom and constant f2.8 aperture
  • LP-E6NH batteries

Canon Cinema EOS C50

These specifications have been around for a long time, and with the delay in announcement, I wouldn’t be surprised if there are some tweaks to the specifications.

  • Super 35mm 4K sensor (same as the Cinema EOS C200)
  • No IBIS
  • RF Mount
  • Internal ND (10 Stops)
  • CLog 2 & CLog 3
  • 4:2:0 8bit internally onto SD cards up to 4K60 & 1080/120
  • No RAW
  • Dual LP-E6NH battery slot

Canon Cinema EOS 8K

A new 8K Cinema EOS camera is the worst kept secret, but its launch date is still up in the air. The NAB Show 2021 begins on October 9, 2021, and I expect that Canon is going to have a massive presence at that show.

There has been nothing new about the rumoured Cinema EOS C90 and Cinema EOS C200 Mark II.
