Canon launched an official teaser for the July 17 announcement: Canon R5II and R1 coming!

Now it’s official! Canon will announce new products on July 17. I expect them to announce the R5II and share many more details about their new flasghip Canon R1 model.

CanonRumors reported a new list of possible R5II specs:

New Canon EOS R5 Mark II Information (Unconfirmed)

  • No blackout during continuous shooting
  • A better implemented pixel-shift high resolution mode (no details)
  • “Some” illumination with the buttons
  • LCD resolution more than doubled
  • Focus sensitivity of -8EV
  • Increased battery performance (don’t expect a quantum leap here)
  • Maximum Electronic Shutter Speed “beyond” 1/8000s
  • Dynamic range claim of 16 stops (claimed vs real world can differ)
  • Full Size HDMI Port
