Canon Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera May Launch On Sept 5
Nikon recently announced the launch of Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras. Now, Canon – another Japan based multinational corporation specialised in the imaging and optical products, is all set to launch revamped mirrorless devices of its own. However, so far, there has been no word of mouth from any credible source. And Canon has been completely mum about it.
Mirrorless cameras draw massive attention because of the fact that they have various advantages over traditional DSLR cameras in some areas. As the name itself suggests, mirrorless cameras do not require a reflex mirror or an optical viewfinder. Instead, the imaging sensor is exposed to light at all times.
Aaccording to CanonRumors, Canon may at least unveil one of the two full-frame mirrorless cameras as soon as September 5. Recently, CanonWatch posted a specification list for an upcoming full frame mirrorless camera from Canon.
Previous rumors suggested that Canon would announce the new range at Photokina this year (which runs from September 26 to 29), but CanonRumors says it is “likely” we’ll get official word on the first one next week. With this, it’s still not clear when will see the launch of Canon’s mirrorless cameras.
Despite officials at Canon being pretty tight lipped about it, rumour mill is abuzz with the possible specifications. Some specs did leak out last week. According to Canon Watch, one of the cameras will feature a 28MP sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and in-body image stabilization (IBIS), along with a 10fps burst speed. The leaked specs also suggest the Canon will offer 4K video capture at 30fps, or 1080p footage at 60fps. Price may fall somewhere around $1,900 (about £1,500 / AU$2,600).
- 28MP full frame sensor
- Dual Pixel Auto Focus
- IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
- 10fps shooting
- Priced $1,900
If there’s a sliver of truth in these specifications, then it is likely that the device will fall under the lower-end bracket of the two anticipated cameras. As Canon’s professional-level, full-frame mirrorless camera is getting its own reveal sometime in the next couple of months.
For now, we have to wait for another week to see if there is indeed another mirrorless camera stepping foot in the market.
