An official on behalf of Canon confirmed the claim about EOS R!
While the CES 2019 exhibition ended, a lot of announcements about new camera models were discussed at the fair in Las Vegas . As in the past year, companies that prefer to take a quiet attitude, CES 2019’in video cameras and cameras in terms of very quiet cause. But the Gospel of a Canon official who spoke at CES overturned this deep silence.
Canon Inc. According to Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi , the company’s product marketing , video recording plays a major role in the development of EOS R camera systems. For this reason, Mizoguchi announced that the goal of developing an 8K camera is on the road map of Canon.
“(…) and video recording are not just from the camera perspective, so we are trying to understand how to produce RF lenses for better video reception. For example, the RF 24-105mm f / 4L lens is the first L-series lens to use Nano USM technology This allowed the camera to automatically and automatically adjust the focus during video recording.
Although many camera manufacturers have made 4K a standard in mirrorless camera systems, Canon can be said to be quite slow. The first high-resolution video recording camera model, the EOS M50 in early 2018 introducing the Japanese company, therefore 4K party was remembered as one of the companies that attended the latest. Although the Canon EOS R full-frame mirror camera features a 4K video camera, many users complained that this model of Canon cropped videos at 1.8x and had a maximum frame rate of 30fps.
However, if Mizoguchi is right, Canon may be among the first companies to offer 8K video recording. This is a sign of great change in the name of the company, since Canon may want to achieve the position of “innovation locomotive” that Sony is holding.
During the meeting, Mizoguchi also said that Canon would focus on developing DSLR models due to “high supply”. This is a result of the company’s intense interest in the 5D Mark IV , 6D Mark II and EOS 80D . This is good news for those who are eagerly waiting for the Canon EOS-1 DX Mark III to arrive this year.
Mizoguchi has heralded the 8K EOS R camera, but has chosen to keep it a secret as to when it will be presented.
