First Canon Full Frame mirrorless system camera rumors…

CanonWatch summed up the rumors about the future Canon FF mirrorless system cameras:

  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.
  • And for all those 4K fans out there: we have been told that, yes!, most likely it will feature 4K video.

New Canon patent shows they are working on a “curved sensor” too!

There is a brand new published Canon patent that discloses a very new kind of camera:

1) It has a curved sensor

2) It has a new EF mount with a lever to detach the lens ( no need to turn)

3) The camera in the patent is a cinema camera but it can be used for a more classic photo mirrorless system camera too

So after Sony and Nikon also Canon is patenting curved sensor tech. Whom will be the first to launch an actual product on the market? My bet goes on Sony…
