Canon is offering a new version of full-frame 75-megapixel version EOS R mirrorless camera and called it the “Canon EOS Rs”. The development announcement of Canon EOS 1DX Mark III initiated some strong rumors regarding the launch of a high-resolution. It is noteworthy that most full-frame cameras offer high-resolution and designed for landscape professional photographers seeking for large prints. The Canon EOS Rs (based on Canon’s old 5Ds) performs a similar role as the A7R IV of Sony. The Canon Rumors source has indicated the Canon EOS Rs will be announced in the month of February 2020. But, there are no rumors yet regarding a price for the EOS Rs.
Point to be noted that Canon 5Ds was at 3699 USD when it launched in 2015. It is also the price point of the Sony A7R IV and could be the major rival to EOS Rs. Early rumors mentioned about a high-resolution version of the Canon EOS R with an 83-megapixel sensor, but the latest rumor pointed about a 75-megapixel camera. It is noteworthy that a single shot on the 61MP Sony A7R IV is a 120MB file, although Canon’s new C-Raw format will help keep them smaller for casual work. The Canon Rumors’ source said this sensor will be focused on the dynamic range and will be supported by a new Digic 9 processor. It will arrive in the Canon 1DX Mark III in early 2020.
Some other rumored features include dual card slots and a joystick. A few other treats will apparently include a fully articulating LCD screen, weather-sealing and larger, higher resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF) than the EOS R. The latter wasn’t exactly lacking in this department, with a 3.6 million dot OLED actually proving to be one of our highlights at the time of its launch. Canon has already confirmed that it’s working on an in-body image stabilization system. The EOS Rs seems the most likely, particularly as the Sony A7R IV has a 5-axis system that also enables its 240.8MP multi-shot mode.
