The Panasonic Lumix GH5 has been a solid choice for run-and-gun video shooters, offering 4K 10-bit 4:2:2, and 4K 60p from its micro-four thirds sensor. Three years after its release, the time for its successor might be upon us.
After getting off to a somewhat middle-of-the-road start with the EOS R and EOS RP, Canon blew the doors off the photography industry with the upcoming R5, which has jaw-dropping specs across the board. Not content to stop there, the company will likely be releasing two more mirrorless bodies in 2021.
The Nikon Z 6 and Nikon Z 7 have been generally well received, with the Z 50 filling out the current lineup at the lower end. There is still room to grow in both directions, however, and it seems that will soon be the case, with at least two new cameras expected from the company in the next year or so.
Speculation is increasing that Canon has two new EOS M cameras due to appear later this year, with suggestions that one of them might be an entirely new model. Given that Canon seems to have shifted its attitude towards in-body stabilization, could one of these new cameras feature IBIS?
The Fujifilm X-E4 (set to replace the older Fujifilm X-E3 this year) seems to have been axed, according to reports on Fujirumors. However, it's not just the X-E4 that's finished before it's begun, the entire X-E line seems to be cast to the wayside as the X-E3, now discontinued, might be the last of its generation.
It’s thought that coronavirus may have an impact on the release dates of both the Canon EOS R5 and R6 as a result of systems dropping to less than a quarter of their regular capacity at the Japanese manufacturer.
With camera bodies getting smaller and processors getting faster, it’s no wonder that manufacturers are having to explore new means of dispersing heat. This is not the first Canon patent to show a cooling fan inside, and how they could be implemented is still something of a conundrum.
With the development announcement for Canon's next mirrorless camera, the R5, many are debating whether or not this will be the company's attempt to usurp the mirrorless throne. Of course, Sony has been the mirrorless king for the last few years now, but will the R5 withstand the legendary might of the Canon Cripple Hammer?
Canon seems to be a little bit shy about announcing the lenses for the new RF mount that are due to appear in 2020. The official roadmap is still a little thin, but rumors are emerging, and we could see a total of seven lenses in the next ten months.
Canon dropped quite a bombshell when it announced the EOS R5, a camera that shows the company is very serious about the mirrorless revolution. Though the company typically works on their own timeline a bit independent of the faster rates of other companies, it seems they are fast-tracking the R5 a bit, with an expected shipping date coming this summer.
