Canon EOS R official specs and pictures leak – Same sensor as 5D Mark IV?

Comment on the forum

The Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera is nearly here. The body appears to have some kind of camcorder-style zoom rocker, it features 4K video but IBIS appears to be missing from the leaked specs. The lenses look rather nice but the sensor appears to have an identical megapixel count as the 5D Mark IV.

Canon EOS M50 – an accidental 4K Digital Bolex

Comment on the forum

It’s 2018 and a good video feature arrives on a Canon! I immediately assume it’s an accident, so taunt is the leash Canon has on video specs.┬áIndeed, what makes the M50 appealing to me is the happy accident of what crop factor you get when you cut an 8 megapixel window out of a 24 megapixel sensor. All the best things are happy accidents when it comes to Canon, who gave us DSLR video by accident, then later RAW video on a 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern by accident, then with the M50’s ridiculous crop – a Super 16mm camera!

Canon’s rival to the GH5 leaks

Comment on the forum

The drawing above shows what Canon’s rival to the GH5 will look like. It is based on the form factor they introduced with the XC10 but features several ergonomic improvements and an interchangeable lens mount. The lens mount appears to support EF lenses and has a locking mechanism. However there seems to be even more going on with the lens mount than meets the eye.

Sony A7R3 users – THROW AWAY YOUR CANON LENSES!

Comment on the forum

It’s time to turn to Sigma if you are a Sony user.

With Sigma’s own Canon mount MC-11 adapter, PDAF in video mode is blazingly responsive.

But ONLY with Sigma’s own lenses.

Canon – the REAL technical and political reasons behind the lack of decent video

Comment on the forum

In 2009 Canon introduced a disruptive technology. His name was the 5D Mark II and it was the devil incarnate. At the time they had a pro line-up of video camcorders like the XL2 which were used by filmmakers all over the world. Canon’s 60+ year old management probably thought they’d just killed an entire business, by accident, with a consumer DSLR.
