Nicely, that didn’t take lengthy. Simply days after rumours verify (if that in itself isn’t an oxymoron) that the Canon EOS R7 goes to be introduced later this 12 months, we now have our first set of rumoured specs. Actually, although, I’m not completely positive how correct these are going to be at this stage. I believe most of those will be put all the way down to some first rate guesswork based mostly on the opposite stuff Canon already has available on the market.
However in addition to a primary rumoured specs listing, Canon Rumors is reporting that “reliable sources” have advised them that Canon will launch two “RF-S” lenses – the mirrorless equal to Canon’s EF-S APS-C DSLR lenses – on the time of the EOS R7 launch.
Let’s check out the specs first, which brings the announcement ahead barely from This autumn to about midway between Q3…
- 32mp APS-C BSI Picture Sensor
- DIGIC X
- 1x CFExpress & 1x SD Card Slots
- 4K @ 60fps
- 1080p @ 240 fps
- C-Log 3
- The newest sizzling shoe
- A mix of ergonomics from the EOS R6 and EOS R5
- Announcement in August 2022
As I stated, a few of the specs – if not all of them – will be put down to only some first rate guesswork, actually. 32-megapixels isn’t an unreasonable quantity digicam nowadays, even an APS-C one, and we all know Canon’s working with BSI sensors now, because the EOS R3’s launch. The Digic X chip additionally isn’t a lot of a shock. It was within the EOS 1DX Mark III, it’s within the EOS R5, R6 and R3, so for a sports activities & wildlife oriented APS-C physique, it’s not precisely a stretch. The identical goes for the twin SD/CFexpress card slots, video capabilities, c-log, the flowery new hotshoe (nicely, duh).
The specs could also be proper, however they might equally be improper. It appears to me like a logical greatest guess based mostly on what Canon already has on the market. I’d hope that we might get some greater FPS on that 4K video, although.
So far as the 2 new lenses that Canon is predicted to announce alongside the EOS R7… Once more, I believe that is fairly logical. They’re going to wish to at the very least launch a equipment lens for a begin, that they’ll promote with the digicam – which Canon Rumors believes is perhaps a Canon RF 18-45mm f/4-5.6 IS STM that’s been sitting on the roadmap for some time now. The opposite lens is probably both an extended focal size vary zoom (like a 70-300 equal) or maybe a relentless f/2.8 or f/4 aperture “regular” zoom.
I suppose we’ll have to attend and see!
