Canon EOS R1 to be announced in 2022 to compete against the Nikon Z9

PetaPixel reports about the nw R1 coming in 2022. Specs might be something like this:

45+ megapixels, 8K video recording at various framerates, and a price somewhere north of the R3’s $5,999

CanonWatch writes the camera might be releases in Q3 2022 and that the Canon EOS R1 will incorporate technology that will “let all competitors behind“.

This would mean it’s better than the new Nikon Z9. Nice if true…but one year is still a long time to go before we see it in real!

Micro Four Thirds had a hard year. With little announcements and many doubts. But both companies will have major announcements on October 17

Panasonic Japan announced it will celebrate the 20th anniversary on October 27th. I And there is a chance we might get some more info about the new GH6.

And OM Digital plans to make two kind of announcements:

  • Announcement of the new naming structure (there will be rebranding from OM-D E-M to OM 1D, OM 5D, OM 10D etc.)
  • Teaser of the new wow camera (Launch in early 2022, new kind of sensor, E-M1III size body).
