A Full Frame mirrorless camera designed by David Riesenberg,

Well, I am sure Canon will release first "advanced" mirrorless system cameras in 2015. And Canon itself hinted the possibility to launch a completely new mirrorless mount system.

CanonWatch now reports that the launch of a 50 Megapixel Mirrorless Full frame camera is likely to happen in 2015.

I am yet not sure if that rumor is likely to become true or not. But we know Sony has a new A9 with high Megapixel sensor coming soon and I guess Canon knows that too...

From EOS-M to EOS-Madness? LOL :)

    Sony should use A mount for their mirrorless system. Yes, it's a bit bigger but easier to make fast lenses. So it relativized it because good lenses for e maount are also very big and heavy.

    Hopefully not yet another proprietary lens system.

    I think Sony is limited also by the fact that the full frame sensor only just fits into the E-mount diameter. It's difficult to design a lens with large enough exit pupil for such mount, especially for fast and wide lenses. I see this as a serious...

CanonWatch reports:

have been told (thanks) that Canon Professional Services and Canon sale forces in Germany have informed various big German dealers that Canon HQs are recalling all EOS M models, but are letting all EF-M lenses in stores and branches. Dealers were told that Canon will address the EOS M in December. For the time being it looks as if it will be a development announcement rather than a last minute X-Mas surprise. If the rumor is reliable then Canon might getting serious about the EOS M system.

I’ve also been told that a CPS roadshow is scheduled for May 2015 to showcase new and important products Canon is going to announce in 2015, which possibly could be the rumoured professional cameras Canon may announce.

I also strongly believe Canon and Nikon will finally launch advanced mirrorless cameras during 2015. They cannot afford "to ignore" the mirrorless market anymore.

    I so doubt this. M43 and APS-C will always have a kit size advantage over full frame.

    what's the point of getting the short end of the stick ergonomically and for other reasons and go FF MILC and nearly having the same kit weight? if the ...

    although FF mirror less with a smaller and lighter body is now a reality with the A7/r/s - there are still physics -
    and that is lens sizes - yes there are manageable Prime FF lenses - but when it comes to zoom then there are issues - compar...

    Nikon is struggling financially - but of course Canon is the big gorilla and they are making good money in their various other divisions - Nikon does have real winners in the D810 and the D750 but there are so many die hard Canon fans out there th...

Both Sony and Canon will announce Full Frame cameras with around 50 Megapixel during the first quarter of 2015. Those cameras will likely be displayed at the CP+ show which starts in mid February.

The Sony 46 Megapixel FF camera will almost certainly be a new E-mount A7 (or A9?). It will feature an advanced autofocusing system based on the current A6000 hybrid af camera.

Canon is likely to announce a new DSLR with such a 50MP sensor. But there is a small chance Canon could use that sensor also on a new Full Frame mirrorless system camera.

I am 100% sure those kind of sensors are coming early 2015. We have an exciting time ahead of us!

    Taking into account viewing distance, even the current sensor generation's pixel count is already useless. It only takes six to eight megapixels to generate prints of arbitrarily large size. In order to view large prints, you need to step further ...

That is a massive let down. Canon big teaser counter and full page advertising on the New York Times was made for a completely unexciting self-producing and self-publishing platform. There is one video on top and another one here if you want to see what it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtS39XS513I.

We will no more believe in any Canon teaser :)

    I just checked the code - the Javascript counted down to 9 a.m. system time.
    Set your system to NYC time and it starts counting again...

    If it counts to Canon USA HQ time (Melville, NY) we have still have to wait for 3:20 h.

    Oh, so they failed the time zone implementation. Should we assume its Canon us headquarter time or maybe ny times time that is revelation time.

  • October 07, 2014 09:08, Andre Vandal said:

    In my time zone (-5) it says still about 4 hours left, was this timer fixed with added time or is yours still at zero?

Finally the giant is waking up form the long sleep and promises to get serious on the mirrorless front. In an interview at Dpreview Canon stated:

In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.

Sounds like they are going after the Sony A7r!!!

    Maybe they just don't understand that when we say mirrorless in English, we don't mean Powershots.

    Canon sensors are about 5 years behind Sonys. They need to get serious period not just about mirrorless.

Canon held a huge presentation in Tokyo (report at DCwatch). The interesting news is that Canon believes the decrease in DSLR sales are just a very short happening. They expect the interchangeable lens camera market to grow again in 2015. The image on top shows the expected growth in Japan.

There is of course no mention at all about future mirrorless strategy. But I think Canon cannot ignore mirrorless anymore...

    This smells like BS. Their 2014 sales are down dramatically, this 'expected' growth looks made up.

    Interesting to see Canon that calls the grow in' interchangeable lens camera's'
    Normally Canon would have said growth in DSLR. Those words were carefully choosen by Canon I guess.
