What Canon Cameras to Expect Next

What Canon Cameras to Expect Next

We have already seen Canon's mind-blowing lens roadmap for the RF mount, but now that the EOS R5 and R6 are here, what can we expect next in terms of cameras?

Canon Rumors is reporting that Canon is planning a range of new camera bodies for its RF mirrorless mount. Perhaps the most exciting (and probably most expected) body will be the R1, the mirrorless equivalent of the 1D series that we should see at the Olympics in 2021. Also exciting will be a high-resolution body, likely to replace the 5DS series. Given the excellent optical quality of RF mount lenses, it is very likely that Canon is planning an ultra-high-resolution camera to leverage their abilities. At the other end of the spectrum, we can also expect a replacement to the EOS RP. The EOS RP is notable for being a sub-$1,000 full frame mirrorless camera, and of course, while that means compromises, it is also a fantastic option as an easy entry into the RF system or as a second body. Altogether, it looks like Canon intends to offer a wide gamut of options that should contain something for everyone. Head over to Canon Rumors for more on the upcoming cameras.

After the R5 debacle, I have not so much hope something will come that can be remarkable.
The Canon R5 was supposed to bet the flagship that should replace the 5D series, and it's far from that.

It's basically a dream camera for cold mountains photography if you like to carry extra battery pack.

The shutter lag forbid you to use it in fast action shooting,

#The overheat limit is stopping you to use the video modes it was marketed for. The other modes are fine, but nothing new from what the competition offers.

#The overheat logo start to flash even when taking pictures only, during studio long session. This is quite scary.

#The body temperature is quite uncomfortable if you shoot outdoor.

#Just don't turn the Wi-Fi on, you will just be stopped for shooting anything.

#The battery drain is 4 time more what the 5D was.

Amazing tech but packed in a wrong way together.

(And I'm not even talking about the fake overheating shut down/recovery time in video only based on a timer and not actual temperature readings; a complete marketing disaster)

What’s wrong with the R5? Shooting it from the day one it became available and didn’t notice any problems.

I just used the R5 in cold temperatures over the course of a week for photo and video AFTER updating my firmware, and the only thing I have concluded as being a possible negative compared to my Mark 4 is the battery life. Other then that, it’s leaps and bounds better.

People saying the R5 was some huge debacle never actually got their hands on one to test out themselves. If that were the case they’d be singing a different tune.

Haters gonna' hate.

According to his profile he's a Canon shooter. Maybe he's waiting on his R5 and lashing out? I don't know.....What you said man!

If you're writing off a company because you feel one product they put out has problems, I guess we can assume you're working from neither a Mac nor a Windows-based PC then?

They will release some more cameras that take photos and probably do some video.

I would love to see a "for photography-only" canon camera. No video needed here. I hate to be forced to pay for video features I never use. I am a photographer.
