Canon Patents A Gimbal With An Interchangeable Lens System

Canon Patents A Gimbal With An Interchangeable Lens System

There are many gimbals in the market today, and for the most part, they’re sold separately from the camera. This means that you would need to own a camera to really take advantage of it. However, DJI did try to create an all-in-one solution with the Osmo Pocket, and it looks like Canon wants to do something similar as well.

According to a report from Canon News, they have discovered a patent filed by Canon that revealed that the company could be working on a gimbal with a built-in camera. However, Canon isn’t just looking to make a Osmo Pocket copycat, but rather it seems that the company wants to take things further by introducing an interchangeable lens system to the game.

Canon Will Now Sell Its Image Sensors To Third-party Companies

Canon Will Now Sell Its Image Sensors To Third-Party Companies

Given how many smartphones are sold every year, it’s actually quite a lucrative business, so it’s not hard to see why even Canon wants in on the action. The company has recently confirmed that they too will start selling their CMOS sensors to third-party companies who might need to use their technology.

According to Canon, “Canon has been manufacturing CMOS sensors since 2000 for exclusive use in Canon products. Building on that expertise and success, Canon is now committed to starting external sales to collaborate with various industries. Canon CMOS sensors feature unique designs to meet the needs of demanding vision applications.”

Lens attachments for smartphones aren’t new, but oddly enough, traditional camera makers have shied away from this particular market segment. However, it seems that maybe, just maybe, Canon could be toying with the idea of creating a lens attachment accessory for smartphones.

Canon Patents Lens Adapter With An Active Cooling System

Canon Patents Lens Adapter With An Active Cooling System

If you’re just a casual photographer, there’s a very low chance that you might encounter an issue where your camera overheats. This usually happens to more professional photographers who might take photos non-stop or who record lengthy videos in high resolution. However, it seems that Canon might have an answer to that problem.

In a patent discovered by Canon News, it looks like Canon’s answer to cameras overheating would be to create a lens adapter that comes with an active cooling system that will help keep the camera cool during operation. How this works is that this lens adapter will feature vents on the top and a fan on the bottom.

Canon Takes The Fight To Sony With Its New Eos R6 Camera

Canon Takes The Fight To Sony With Its New EOS R6 Camera

When it comes to full frame mirrorless cameras, it’s hard to deny that Sony has pretty much the market cornered. However, in the past few years, we’ve started to see more efforts from other camera makers looking to challenge Sony’s position on the throne, and it looks like Canon might have a potential camera that could rival Sony.

The company has officially announced its latest full frame mirrorless camera in the form of the Canon EOS R6. The camera will come with a 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor and DIGIC X image processor, and if you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, it is because this is the same sensor used in Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR camera, so you should be able to expect similar performance, but in a smaller package.

Canon Eos R With Hybrid Mount Could Feature A 'moving' Sensor

Canon EOS R With Hybrid Mount Could Feature A 'Moving' Sensor

According to a rumor from earlier this month, it was suggested that Canon could be working on a new professional EOS R camera that could feature a hybrid EF/RF mount. Now according to a report from Canon Watch, it seems that another possible rumored feature of the camera is a “moving sensor”.

The report claims that this moving sensor is what will help make the hybrid mounting system works. This is due to the fact that EF and RF lenses are made differently. By using a moving sensor, it can help to move the sensor back and forth to adjust for the flange distance between the two lens types.

Canon Eos R Mark Ii Reportedly Already In Testing

Canon EOS R Mark II Reportedly Already In Testing

Canon’s EOS R mirrorless camera was originally launched back in 2018. If you weren’t too thrilled by its specs or were waiting for a successor, you might be pleased to learn that we might be able to expect the Mark II version in 2020. This is according to a report from Canon Rumors who heard from their sources that testing of the EOS R Mark II is already underway.

The report goes on to claim that the camera will most likely be announced ahead of Photokina 2020 in May. Canon is also expected to announce more than one camera, where one model will the EOS R Mark II and the other will be the EOS Rs, which last we heard could be sporting support for dual memory cards.

The problem with a lot of camera systems is that generally speaking, lenses don’t come in a one-size-fits-all design. This means that even amongst the same brand, different models could use different lens mounts. This in turn creates a problem for photographers who are looking to adopt a new system and would either have to deal with adapters or buy a new set of lens entirely, which can be pretty expensive.

However, for Canon photographers, if you’re looking to make the move to the company’s EOS R series of mirrorless cameras but you have a bunch of EF mount lenses lying around, you could be in luck. This is because according to a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard that Canon is developing a new model of the EOS R that could come with an EF/RF hybrid mount.

In case Canon’s existing EOS R mirrorless cameras aren’t “pro” enough for you, you might have heard that the company could be working on a new model with an even higher megapixel count. Now according to Canon Rumors, it seems that we will be able to expect an EOS R camera with an 80MP+ sensor in the first half of 2020.

In addition to reporting on a potential launch date, the report also reveals some additional specs and features of the camera. This includes how this new model will feature a larger body and grip compared to the existing EOS R, which will come in handy for photographers with larger hands who might be able to appreciate such a design.

If you’re shopping about for a new DSLR camera and you don’t want to spend too much money, you’re in luck. This is because Canon has recently announced the EOS 90D.

In terms of the specs, the Canon EOS 90D will come with a 32.5MP CMOS APS-C sensor. If you were hoping for a full-frame sensor, you might need to look at other models. However, if you’re fine with it, the EOS 90D will also come with the DIGIC 8 image processor. The camera will also support 4K video recording at 30 fps, and also 1080p at 120 fps.

This is according to a report from Canon Rumors who spotted a leaked promotional video from Canon, advertising the EOS M6 Mark II.

Thanks to the leaked video, we know that the company is indeed working on the camera and now we also have an idea of what kind of specs we can expect.

There will also be a removable OLED viewfinder.

Canon EOS R L Mirrorless Camera With 75MP Sensor Rumored To Be In Development

A rumor from earlier this year seemed to suggest that Canon could have a “pro” grade camera of its EOS R mirrorless lineup in the works. The rumors claimed that the camera in question could have a 100MP sensor, although according to recent rumors, we’re hearing that there could also be another high megapixel camera in the works as well.

The camera in question is rumored to be known as the Canon EOS R L, with the L apparently standing for “landscape”, suggesting that this camera could be aimed at those who enjoy shooting landscape photographs – basically photographs that might not necessarily have a lot of movement and could benefit from things like long exposure and whatnot.

Canon has introduced a small clippable camera called the Ivy Rec. Meant for outdoor use, the camera is built into a keychain carabiner and is roughly the size of a USB drive. It can connect to a mobile device wirelessly through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and show a live preview. The company is crowdfunding this project through Indiegogo.

There’s a 13 megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor in the Ivy Rec which is capable of recording 1080p video at 60 frames per second. It’s waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to three feet of water. The empty square space that you see is essentially the viewfinder. There’s also a single dial at the back for switching between the modes.
