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.
Canon 6D Mark II Leaked Specifications

- Dual Pixel AF
- 45-point AF (all cross-type)
- ISO 40,000 max sensitivity (up to ISO 102,400 extended)
- Full HD with 5-axis electronics image stabilization

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.
The Canon 6D Mark II has been on deck for quite a while now and we are starting to see more info leak out with the certification bodies. Additionally, the Canon Rebel SL2 appears to be set to launch with or around the same time of the 6D Mark II in July 2017. [Read more…]
I’ve gone on and on about Canon’s need to enter the full frame mirrorless market. While some of its more recent mirrorless cameras are intriguing, we aren’t going to take Canon seriously until it comes out with a camera that can actually go head-to-head with the Sony A7 line. [Read more…]
[UPDATE 8/25/16: The Canon 5D Mark IV has been officially announced and will ship September 8. Check it out here at B&H Photo.]
We’ve been talking about the Canon 5D Mark IV for so long, it’s hard to believe that the camera is almost here. The amount of images and specs that have now leaked and corroborated among several outlets leave the official announcement as a mere formality.
The camera should be announced next week and is expected to be available within a month. As such, it should be a monster seller.
So, what is the fuss about?
Pretty much everything we’ve reasonably asked for… [Read more…]
It appears that legit final specs for the Canon 5D Mark IV are starting to leak out via Canon Rumors with a couple of interesting departures from what we’ve seen in the past. Notably, a 30MP full frame sensor and no CFast card slot are features that are likely to stir the pot of opinions among Canon shooters.
Canon 5D Mark IV Specs
- Compact Flash/SD Card Slots (No CFast)
- 24/30fps @ 4K
- 60fps @ 1080
- 120fps @ 720
- USB 3
- Cable release port moved to the front of the camera where the “Mark XX” badge was.
- A lot more touchscreen functionality than the EOS-1D X Mark II
- Other ergonomic changes, such as a new “locking switch” on the rear of the camera.
Canon Rumors says it expects to receive more details on the upcoming Mark IV over the next few days. If you recall, we expect the official announcement date to be August 25, 2016.
If these reportedly leaked specs are true, what do you think about the 5D Mark IV so far?
