NAB Show is an annual trade show, this year, it is going to take place in Las Vegas in October. Reports suggest that Canon will make a splash at the event with its product launches. In order to attract the attention of users, Canon may launch a few interesting imaging products. Going by the report of Canon Rumors, the camera company will release Canon XF505 video camera, Canon EOS R5c mirrorless camera, as well as some CINE lenses.
The report clearly states, "It looks like NAB 2021 is going to be a big show for Canon, as they will be releasing a bunch of new CINE lenses, possibly the Canon EOS R5c and now we have to be told that Canon will release the Canon XF505."
Speaking of the company's upcoming video camera, the XF505 may sit between the XF405 and XF705 in the line-up. The camera has been in the news from quite some time. In fact, there are a bunch of features that are expected to be included in the forthcoming camera. Such features are: the same 1-inch image sensor as seen on the Canon XF705, 12G-SDI output and SD cards, an integrated zoom lens with 15x zoom, and BP-A batteries.
While mentioned above could be the rumoured specifications of the camera, but remember that in every rumour -there is a tang of truth. Diving deep into the same report, also suggests the company could launch Canon EOS R5c in the second half of 2021. Again, if this happens to be true, then the R5c model could be even more powerful than the Canon EOS R5 camera launched in July 2020.

"The camera, which we are calling the EOS R5c will be equipped with the same image sensor as the EOS R5 and will have all of the same recording options," Canon Rumors reported earlier. "It will be a slightly bigger body with active cooling and it will also remain a hybrid camera for stills shooting."
As for the optics, yes, there will probably be some CINE lenses that the company will announce alongside the cameras. Thus, camera users certainly have something exciting from canon to look forward to at the NAB Show 2021.
