Back at CES 2019, we saw several concept cameras on display in the Canon booth. Now, rumors are going around the photography blogosphere that we’ll see them launch targeted toward a younger crowd. [Read more…]
One of the frustrations of shooting 4K on many of the recent DSLRs (particularly Canon) has been that the image is severely cropped. If new rumors are to be believed, however, the Canon 90D may feature 4K capture using the full APS-C sensor.
Canon Rumors posits that “we may be getting the new generation of Canon sensors with line skipping or pixel binning for video work.”
Previous rumors suggested the 4K video capture from a 32.5mp APS-C DPAF sensor. Full-width 4K capture on the APS-C sensor would be a very welcomed improvement for what may be the last of this prosumer breed of DSLRs. If this turns out to be true, I think the Canon 90D will sell like hotcakes at the rumored $1400 pricepoint.
One of the big highlights during the new Mac Pro unveil yesterday was the machine’s 8K video editing prowess; however, there is a shortage of cameras capable of capturing 8K footage. During Jonathan Morrison’s Hands-On video (embedded below) of the new Mac Pro, we got a sneak peek of an unreleased Canon 8K cinema camera that was used to capture 8K Pro-Res RAW. [Read more…]
Canon had a few concept cameras on display at CES 2019. With CES being a consumer-oriented show, the specific products on display were targeted toward a lower-end consumer audience. Check them out below. [Read more…]
The upcoming Canon EOS M50 4K mirrorless camera and a pair of Canon Rebel models have leaked out. [Read more…]
According to Canon Rumors, the successor(s) to the popular Canon 5DS and 5DS R is not expected to receive a major jump in resolution. While the 5DS series jumped out from the 5D product line with a massive increase in resolution, the next iteration to the product line is expected to see less than a 20% increase for the already whopping 50.6MP sensor on the 5DS.
The new Canon 5DS Mark II (or whatever it is called) is expected to hit sometime in 2018. With Nikon’s new D850 (and its 45.7MP FX sensor) rolling in a ton of praise right now, what does Canon need to do with the 5DS line to gain the spotlight once again?
Canon will, of course, unveil a new addition to the popular 7D product line – likely to be called the Canon 7D Mark III. The most recent timeline suggests this will happen in 2018.
As we inch closer toward an actual release date, we’ll surely hear more and more rumors about such a camera. Today, we have a rumored (if somewhat suspect) list of key specifications for the upcoming 7D Mark III. Check it out below. [Read more…]
The Canon 6D Mark II has been a very leaky camera. Now, we’ve got photos and leaked specs of the upcoming camera.
The specs confirm basically what we’ve been seeing for awhile now. I think this is looking like one of the best Canon DSLR releases since the Canon 7D.

In the last rumor update on the Canon 6D Mark II, I was hoping that the 6D Mark II would come in at or below the $2100 price point of the original Canon 6D. New credible info from Canon Rumors reveals that the retail price will be $1,999 when it is officially unveiled next week!
While the 6D Mark II doesn’t look like it has the whiz-bang video features of the 5D Mark IV, it looks like it has some serious chops as a still image shooter. It’s rumored to be a full frame DSLR with a 26MP sensor with a 45-point AF system with all cross-type points.
Of course, the 1080/60p video capture on the full frame sensor is going to do well enough, it’s not quite cutting edge as a 2017 HDSLR. With the updated AF, high-res full frame sensor and sub-$2,000 price, it looks like a well-timed and welcome photography tool at a substantially-discounted price from the state-of-the-art 5D Mark IV.
We should know everything for certain next week on the 6D Mark II’s expected announcement date of June 29.
