Recently, with rumors of the Canon 5DS and 5DS R being discontinued, there was talk around the industry of Canon possibly bringing a 150-megapixel monster to the market. More news has emerged that the high-resolution camera is being tested by a chosen few photographers, and while it is not 150 megapixels, it will certainly bring buckets of detail.
Canon Rumors is reporting the upcoming camera that's currently being tested is somewhere around "double" the resolution of the 45-megapixel R5. First, I certainly think it is plausible that Canon is done with high-megapixel DSLRs and that the next high-resolution camera from the company will be a mirrorless body, particularly since their new RF lenses are much better equipped to handle extreme resolutions than most EF lenses and the company seems to be shifting most of its innovative focus toward the mirrorless realm. I would not be surprised to see a mirrorless body around 80 megapixels, particularly since Canon has shown they're looking to aggressively take back market share by leapfrogging competitor's specs with the upcoming EOS R5, and in the resolution race, the 61-megapixel Sony a7R IV is the current champ to beat.
