Canon is rumored to announce a new budget-friendly full-frame mirrorless camera. Although the name of the new camera is not yet certain, it is said that it will be Canon EOS RC and will be announced in early 2021.
As is known, Canon EOS RP (B&H, Adorama, Amazon) is the cheapest RF-mount mirrorless camera currently on the market and costs $999. It looks like Canon plans to announce a new “EOS RC” entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera built under the EOS RP in the first half of 2021.
Along with the EOS RC rumor, Canon will allegedly announce a new APS-C format RF mount mirrorless camera in the second half of 2021, which was initially slated to be announced in early 2021. And the long-rumored Canon EOS M7 high-end flagship mirrorless camera will come in Q4 of 2020, and it will probably be the last EF-mount mirrorless camera ever!
Here is a recent talk about the Canon EOS RC full frame mirrorless camera by Tony Northrup. Continue reading “Canon EOS RC Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Coming in Early 2021”
