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.

Why Canon lacks a 4K B-cam

On the EOSHD Forum recently, filmmaker Oliver Daniel raised a very good point about the Canon C200 –

“It’s a professional camera, used for professional jobs that pay well. (or it’s an expensive hobby camera!) For this purpose, you then have to start thinking about smaller B and C cameras – and this is where the prospect falls.

Update: Rather an an SDI port, it seems the XC15 is set to feature an audio connector for a set of XLR jacks on a top grip accessory which slots into the hot-shoe similar to the C300. The larger hot-shoe has been redesigned with a screw-thread, again another hint the update is all about accommodating a handle with XLRs.

With a camera so ripe for a change, could we expect anything else or is this yet another disappointment?
