Sony a7R V Coming in 2022 with 102MP Sensor?

According to recent reports, the Sony a7R V will be released in 2022 with a new 102MP full frame sensor. Of course, the image here is not real, but the expectation is that the sensor resolution of the Sony A7RV will be 102MP.

The Sony A7R series is a high resolution mirrorless camera model designed not for video shooters but for photographers who care about details

Rumors : Canon EOS R5C Coming in Q1 of 2022

As you may remember, we started talking about the EOS R5c mirrorless camera that Canon has been working last year. Now we have several confirmations that the development of Canon EOS R5C cinema camera is on the way.

The rumor mill claims that the Canon EOS R5C camera could be announced around NAB in October this year, but apparently it has been postponed to the first quarter of 2022. We think that Canon wants to release it within 60 days after its announcement.

The Canon EOS R5C camera is expected to have the same image sensor as the Canon EOS R5 and will have all of the same recording options (8K30 Raw and 4K120 10-Bit Internal Video). In addition, the Canon EOS R5C will be equipped with a powerful cooling system, a slightly different form factor, and more codecs for video recording as well as a full-size HDMI port, and it is expected to be a very attractive camera especially for those who mainly use videos for long turns.
