Three Canon RF mount cameras rumoured for 2022 including EOS R/RP replacements and one APS-C

According to CR, among the cams will be an APS-C RF install electronic camera, one will be a brand-new entry-level full-frame body that uses the very same sensor as the Canon EOS R6 and the third will sit someplace between that brand-new entry-level video camera and the EOS R6 but will consist of a new sensing unit. The most likely scenario is “Mark II” updates to the initial Canon EOS R and EOS RP cams.

As far as the other 2 go … Theyre both full-frame and if they sit listed below the EOS R6, then replacement designs for the initial Canon EOS R and EOS RP announced in September 2018 and March 2019 respectively appears to be the logical conclusion. By the time the latter half of 2022 comes around, the EOS R will be near 4 years old and the EOS RP around three and a half. So, they seem about on schedule for replacements, especially when Canon has actually made massive leaps in mirrorless tech– and especially autofocus– since those very first two releases.

There arent any real specifications on any of the cameras other than what was pointed out above, however its been recommended that the APS-C model might be a sort-of replacement for the 7D Mark II, with CRs source recommendations that it was “possibly a little M50 blended with some 7D”. So, it may end up being more of an EOS 90D replacement rather than a true 7D Mark II replacement. That being stated, theres likewise this recently discovered patent relating to a theoretical “RF-S 16-55mm f/2.8” APS-C lens. The timing of this patent, along with the most current Quad Pixel AF patent does recommend that we might really see a mirrorless update to the 7D Mark II.

We may likewise see it come in at least one of the new full-frame designs, too. I question it would be in the lowest new entry-level design if it uses the EOS R6 sensor as rumoured, however we might see it in the new design that sits above that and below the EOS R6.

Rumours about brand-new Canon video cameras appear to have been relatively peaceful since the Canon EOS R3 was announced. At least, theyve been really peaceful when it pertains to anything particular, but a brand-new post on Canon Rumors suggests that we can anticipate three brand-new EOS R system video cameras to come in the latter half of 2022. Perhaps, none of them appears to be the anticipated EOS R1 flagship model.

The three new cams are expected to be launched in the second half of 2022, but beyond that they do not appear to get much more particular.

One other rumour is that there will be no EVF on a minimum of one of these cameras, although which one hasnt been defined. I would expect that it would potentially be the lower end entry-level model, possibly targeted more towards vloggers who do not actually require one. Vloggers were a big chunk of clients for the original EOS RP.

The big question, however, is will any of these cams see Quad Pixel AF? A lot of us have actually assumed that QPAF tech would be coming on the EOS R3 (it didnt) or the approaching EOS R1, but if the APS-C body is something of a 7D Mark II replacement, targeted specifically towards fast-moving sports and wildlife, the smaller sensor will likely be easier to evaluate the tech and make out in the genuine world.

Rumours about new Canon cameras seem to have actually been relatively quiet since the Canon EOS R3 was revealed. At least, theyve been very quiet when it comes to anything specific, but a brand-new post on Canon Rumors suggests that we can expect three new EOS R system video cameras to come in the latter half of 2022. As far as the other two go … Theyre both full-frame and if they sit listed below the EOS R6, then replacement models for the initial Canon EOS R and EOS RP revealed in September 2018 and March 2019 respectively seems to be the logical conclusion. I question it would be in the most affordable brand-new entry-level model if it uses the EOS R6 sensor as rumoured, however we might see it in the brand-new design that sits above that and below the EOS R6.
