Canon EOS R3: Horrible News if This Happens

This would be a huge risk for the Canon EOS R3.

Canon has long been one of the few camera brands that produce their own sensors. Their latest creations have really pushed them back to the front of the pack. The EOS R5 and EOS R6 have proven Canon still makes great sensors. Canon fans are excited at the announcement that the Canon EOS R3 is coming. It’s going to be a first of its kind if they beat Nikon’s Z9 to market. A Full-Frame Mirrorless flagship of sorts. It will feature an integrated grip and mind-blowing specs. However, there’s a potential problem being theorized about this camera. It may not feature a Canon-made sensor. Read on below for more.

A Lens Patent Could Be the First Hint of a New Canon Fixed Lens Camera

It has been a long minute since Canon released a fixed lens camera; we’re hoping it’s a new G1 X.

Over the last few years, fixed lens cameras have become one of the hottest camera segments once again. Spurred on by cameras like the Fujifilm X100F, X100V, and even cameras like the Leica Q2, sales have been excellent. Canon produces excellent fixed lens cameras. However, as the title suggests, it has been a while (three years) since their last one. However, that might be about to change. A patent for a zoom lens that will pair up with a fixed lens camera has just been filed by Canon. This is incredibly exciting to us. What could it be, though? Let’s talk about this after the break.

Canon EOS R7: Do We Need a New RF Mount APS-C Camera?

canon aps-c cameras

If noise about a new Canon EOS R7 turns out to be real, the days of Canon EF-M cameras might be limited.

Over the last two years, we have seen Canon grow their presence in the Mirrorless space. Full-Frame RF Mount cameras have come on in leaps and bounds, and many have re-joined the Canon fold. One area that Canon really needs to work on, though, is streamlining its offerings. Currently, Canon’s Mirrorless cameras are spread across two different mounts; EF-M and RF. This is incredibly confusing to consumers, especially as EF-M cameras offer no clear upgrade path to the newer RF mount. So, it comes as no surprise that there’s some noise about a potential Canon EOS R7. To me, this model number suggests it could be a Mirrorless replacement for the aging Canon 7D series, and honestly, this is what it needs to be. Let’s talk about this after the break.

Canon’s New Workhorse Camera: The Canon EOS R6 Review

The Canon EOS R6 attempts to reclaim the workhorse camera throne from Sony, and it has more than a fighting chance of winning.

The Canon EOS R6 has been living in the shadow of its bigger brother, the EOS R5, ever since the two cameras were announced earlier this year. Aimed at working professionals, the Canon EOS R6 seems to be slightly underweight compared to its main rivals. Still, this camera, which is powered by the same 20.1MP sensor and DIGIC X processor found in the 1DX III, has a lot of fight in it. Does the EOS R6 have enough about it to make the Sony a7 III, the Nikon Z6, and the Panasonic S1 throw in the towel? Find out in our full review.

The Canon R5, R6 May Ship in Sept, August, But Will the Prices be Right?

The Canon R5 and the R6 are the most anticipated cameras of 2020, but Canon needs to get this right, or the RF mount may have to head back to the drawing board.

Canon has the photography world’s attention right now. All eyes have been on the BIG C since they first announced the Canon R5 and the Canon R6, and for a good reason. A quick look at the reported specs will make any photography and videographer weak at the knees, but until today, firm shipping timelines have been hard to come by, and there is still no word on pricing. It’s the latter part of that last sentence that has us slightly worried. Canon need’s to be really careful when it comes to pricing their new cameras, or they may find that their RF mount simply won’t gain traction.

Opinion: The 6 Ways Canon Can Win the Mirrorless Race

Canon will have to really up their game if they want to overtake Sony and win the Mirrorless race.

Come with me on a journey to 2012. Things were going fantastically well for Canon. They were riding high thanks to the success of the Canon 5D II, the 5D III had just hit the streets, and it too was a roaring success. Canon had the camera market under their thumb, and they looked untouchable. Nikon was doing well, but even their cameras, as strong as they were, just couldn’t keep up. Canon reigned over the camera world until Sony lit the base of their throne on fire in 2014 with the release of the Sony a7. After this release, the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to constant innovation, Sony surged ahead in the camera market, leaving Canon in its wake. So, here we are six years later, and Canon is now starting to mount their assault, but what will it take to get ahead in the Mirrorless race? Let’s talk about this after the break.

Canon Can Still Screw up the Canon EOS R5, If It’s Real. Here’s How!

Do you hear that?

The Canon EOS R II Really Needs to Feature a New Sensor

Canon EOS R

Canon, all we ask is please don’t reuse the sensor that is found in the EOS R (and the four-year-old 5D4) for the EOS R II.

No matter what way you slice it, 2020 is going to be an incredibly important year for Canon. For a while, Canon has been complaining about declining sales, but they can change all of that in 2020. Canon has been working hard on their RF Mount lenses, and they are incredible, but the cameras they attach to leave much to be desired. Hopefully, in 2020, we will see some new bodies from Canon, and we hope one of them is the EOS R II. But, Canon needs to make sure they get this right. Let’s talk about this after the break.

As we all know, Canon, along with Nikon, arrived incredibly late to the Full Frame Mirrorless camera party, and they have both paid the price for that snafu and their oversight.

New Market Stats Suggest Canon Needs an RF Mount Rebel Camera Now

camera deals

As Canon cameras are absent from the top 10 selling cameras in Japan for November 2019, perhaps it’s time for an RF Mount Rebel.

It seems as though things are going from bad to worse for Canon. For the first time in what seems like an eternity, the top-selling cameras in Japan for a given month do not belong to Canon. Not only is Canon’s absence in the top three unexpected, but there are also no Canon cameras in the top 10 for November 2019. Ouch. Canon’s insistence on pushing their M mount is not paying off, so maybe it’s time for an RF mount Rebel camera. Let’s talk about this.
