Soon after Canon has officially confirmed the development of the high-end full-frame EOS R5 mirrorless camera that will be capable of shooting 8K video internally, it seems that the company has another enticing offering in the making.
Canon Rumors has just reported that the Japanese behemoth is about to announce a new Cinema EOS camera ahead of NAB in April. At this stage, this rumor should be taken with a pinch of salt as nothing has been officially confirmed yet.
Considering that the flagship EOS C500 Mark II was announced back in September 2019 prior to IBC while being the only EOS cinema camera rolled out back in 2019, it won’t be a big surprise if we see another member of the EOS lineup hitting the market in 2020.
According to Canon Rumors, the new cinema camera will follow the same form factor as the recently released EOS C500 Mark II and will have a user interchangeable EF and PL mount alongside Super 35mm sensor and 4K video capabilities.
CR speculates that the new model will be the next iteration of the EOS C300 Mark II and not the coming 8K Canon Cinema EOS camera, even though a development announcement of such a device shouldn’t be completely taken out of the equation. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
