Canon plans to launch a couple of cameras this year. As per previous reports, the company may release EOS R1 flagship camera, an APS-C RF camera body, and two 8K cinema cameras. The latest report by Canon Rumors suggests Canon will announce two new cinema EOS cameras in the first half of 2021. Though it is unsure if the cameras will boast 8K video recording capabilities or not.
"I have been told that Canon still plans to announce two new Cinema EOS cameras in the first half of 2021. I was also told that a third one would come in the second half of 2021 and that it will most likely be the 8K Cinema EOS camera," Canon Rumors writes.
The two cameras that are expected to arrive in the first half are the Canon Cinema EOS C50 box camera, and the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II.
The report reveals rumoured specifications of the Canon Cinema EOS C50. The camera may include a 35mm image sensor, similar to Cinema EOS C200. It may support CLog 2 and CLog 3 as well as 4K video capture at up to 60FPS and fullHD videos at up to 120FPS. There are conjectures about missing in-body image stabilization in the same C50 camera.
For the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II, there are no much details on the technical specifications. The report states, "As for the Cinema EOS C200 Mark II, I haven't been given any specifications for the camera, but I would expect something to hit my inbox in the next little while if the camera is indeed coming in the next few months."
Since we do have the rumoured specs and features now, the launch of the two cinema cameras will certainly happen. However, there can be a delay in the launch or shipment of the products due to the global scenario.
In other news, the company just unveiled the Canon PowerShot PICK camera with AI technology. The camera is capable of surveying a scene, detecting faces, tracking them, and clicking a photo. It is exclusive to Japan as of now, and is priced at 42,900 yen.
