2022 has been a busy year for Canon, with multiple cameras and lenses released, but it is not over yet. It appears Canon has one more camera in store before the end of the year.
Canon Rumors is reporting that Canon will announce one more camera this year, the EOS R100. Following Canon's naming convention of higher numbers representing lower-level bodies, the EOS R100 will likely look like EOS M cameras, with specs to match. These will include a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor paired with a DIGIC X processor, 4K 30p video, 12 fps continuous bursts with the mechanical shutter, Dual Pixel AF II, and a 1.04-million-dot Vari-Angle touchscreen.
Perhaps the most interesting spec is that the EOS R100 will have no viewfinder. Canon has been gradually working on filling out the budget end of the EOS R lineup, and no doubt, another affordable camera would likely be a popular entry point into the RF mount or backup body for those already in it. With the Vari-Angle touchscreen, Dual Pixel AF II, and lack of a viewfinder, I would bet that Canon is aiming this camera at vloggers and the like, but in such a tiny package, it could be a nice portable option for things like hiking and travel, especially if we see more smaller RF-S lenses making their way to the market.
