Canon Rumors notes new rumors that suggest Canon will use a new, dedicated sensor for its upcoming mirrorless camera. As rumored, the upcoming full frame mirrorless won’t use the sensor from the 5D Mark IV or 6D Mark II. Additionally, we’re not expected to hear official word from Canon until Photokina 2018, which is slated for next August.
What’s on your wishlist for a full frame camera from Canon? What’s the sweet spot in resolution for this camera?
Tim Driman says
Are you guys kidding?
I have written to Canon in South Africa twice to ask what their take is on the mirrorless technology as I would love them to keep pace or better what the SONY A9 can do…. I am heavily invested in Canon toys… Their silence has been deafening! Not very encouraging would you say?
Methinks we have another KODAK story brewing kind Sir….
By the time CANIKON both wake up, SONY would have passed the winning post and been far too far ahead for them to catch up….
I have been a Canon guy for 18 years and love the equipment, but recently purchased the A9 and G Master 70mm-200mm f2.8 + 2x converter….I love my Canon 1DMKii / 200mm-400mm f4.0 + 1.4x built-in converter and have incredible results…..But the SONY A9 kicks it’s butt for speed and tracking!
I think people have lost patience with the DSLR camera for size, features and cost ….likes if GoPro and particularly cell phone market is showing that we need inovatation and not another camera body.
Canon MK4 disappointment on SNR Vs comparators and new inovative like light showing that breakthroughs and origional thinking can change landscape. Pixel2 showing a way through a 4k video camera and given waisting money in mx? Range is probably end of the road.
Good luck canon and other DSLR camera makers in your incremental products that don’t cut it any more for consumer….there is times to invent and differentiate but likes of me not seeing it at each stage
Best of luck….I will not bit on buying the next DSLR for sake of it

The sweet spot in resolution is well above 50 Mpixels. Matthew Brady was making the equivalent of 80 to 100 Mpixel images during the Civil War and we still aren’t up to that point in 2017??? (Except $$$ medium format) When Canon introduced the 5Ds and 5Ds R with its elaborate mirror damping and delays up to 1 second they admitted that the DSLR is not the appropriate platform for high resolution sensors. I hope that Canon gives us lots of megapixels, lots of dynamic range and 14 or 16 bit raw images. I hope it isn’t a compromise camera with lots of frames per second, high ISO, etc. I’d be thrilled with a high resolution camera permanently set on ISO 100 and one frame per second tops. I hope it’s NOT a “professional” camera – that has come to mean an expensive low/medium resolution high speed camera for sports.

While I’m at it I also hope that Canon produces a big heavy camera that takes EF and EF L lenses with no adapter. Sony already demonstrated that small bodies and small batteries suck for mirrorless cameras. I hope the Canon has a huge integral vertical grip with two big batteries or the Mother of all Batteries.
Does the fact that this new Canon looks like the Sony a7R2 mean that it will accept Sony FE lenses?
Eric Reagan says
No. That’s just a Photoshopped hack job. We have no idea what it will look like.
William Sommerwerck says
For me, the sweet spot in resolution would be that which permits ISO 3200 without any visible noise or artifacts. (Yes, I grew up shooting Polaroid 3000 material.) A higher ISO would be even nicer.

The new mirorless canon looks like a Sony.
