In an interview across the time of the pixel shift firmware replace for the Canon EOS R5, a Canon govt claimed that Canon wasn’t even engaged on a follow-up to the EOS R5, which even on the floor was foolish, due to course they’re and have been for a while. Typically context will get misplaced in translation although.
We’re additionally seeing some aggressive pricing and reductions on the Canon EOS R5, which is not at all times an indicator of a substitute on the close to horizon, it’s an indicator that inventory ranges are a bit too excessive for retailers and Canon themselves.
We additionally count on This autumn of this yr to be a particularly energetic announcement cycle for lots of corporations. We count on Panasonic, Sony and Nikon to make some large digicam bulletins. We additionally suppose Canon goes to have one thing main to inform us a few digicam physique in This autumn.
We’ve got been informed by one superb supply that Canon has ever intention to announce the EOS R5 substitute a method or one other in This autumn. The identical supply is as sure as they are often about an R5 Mark II showing earlier than the long-awaited EOS R1, which shall be a sluggish burn launch cycle main as much as the Paris Olympic video games.
One other supply talked about that it is attainable Canon releases two EOS R5 substitute our bodies. One being the EOS R5 Mark II, and the opposite being the unicorn high-megapixel EOS R5 variant. If you are going to make each cameras, it will be superb for shoppers to provide them a alternative as to which manner they’d wish to go, as a substitute of getting to “settle”. The high-megapixel model will not have the identical video options because the EOS R5 Mark II, which ought to be anticipated and fairly frankly, welcomed.
Don’t count on any significant decision improve on the EOS R5 Mark II, that 45mp decision could be the candy spot for fairly a while. Which can also be welcomed from our viewpoint.
Neither supply had any concept about the way forward for the EOS R5 C and if Canon has or can determine cooling the EOS R5 Mark II and not using a fan. We’re not engineers, however not a lot is inconceivable in terms of digicam our bodies.
Extra to return on the EOS R5 Mark II and EOS R1 later this week.
