Canon’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless cameras will be here very soon. According to the most recent reports, both the heavily previewed Canon EOS R5 and the rumored Canon EOS R6 will be announced together “on or around July 2nd.”

This news comes from the ever-reliable Canon Rumors, who has been on a tear in terms of predicting Canon’s moves with the EOS R-series of cameras. Initial reports of an EOS R with 20fps continuous shooting and 8K video capability were scoffed at, only to be confirmed by Canon shortly thereafter. Since then, just about every spec they’ve reported has been officially confirmed.

Now, CR is reporting that both the EOS R5 and its lower-resolution little brother, the 20MP EOS R6, will be officially announced in less than a month.

Leaked Photo Shows Canon 1D X Mark III with Silver-and-Black Color Scheme

 Gear, Mirrorless  Comments Off on Leaked Photo Shows Canon 1D X Mark III with Silver-and-Black Color Scheme

A low-res leaked photo published by Canon Rumors today purports to show a Canon 1D X Mark III… but it doesn’t look like any 1D camera we’ve seen in recent years. The color scheme looks more like a film SLR from years past.

The photo has been modified by CR to cut out the photographer holding the camera, but otherwise this is a real photo of a real Canon camera being used in the wild. The question is what exactly are we looking at? Either Canon is planning to differentiate the 1D Series by adding another color option to the mix with the 1D X Mark III—which is currently only shown in black at online retailers—or this is just an unpainted prototype currently being tested in the wild.
