According to recent rumors, Canon has a new EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera in the works that could be a budget model. It turns out the rumors were right on the money because Canon has since officially announced the EOS RP, the company’s next attempt at a full-frame mirrorless camera that won’t break the bank.
For those unfamiliar, Canon announced their first full-frame mirrorless camera back in 2018. However there was always something “missing” from the announcement, and it turns out that the EOS R represented a mid-range full-frame camera, and now the EOS RP is the budget version, which means that there could be one more high-end camera in the works.

Nikon unveiled the relatively affordable Z6 full frame mirrorless camera earlier this year. It will be a good option for those looking for a camera of this sort without shelling out close to $3,500 for the company’s Z7 camera. Nikon has confirmed today that the Z6 camera will be available for purchase starting November 16th.
Customers will be able to purchase the Z6 in body only form for $2,000. If they want it with the 24-70mm f/4 S lens then they will have to pay $2,600. The camera has a 24.5 megapixel full frame sensor with 100-51,200 native ISO, 273 autofocus points, 12 fps continuous shooting, and 4K video.
When it comes to full-frame mirrorless cameras, for years Sony has more or less monopolized the market with its A7 and A9 cameras. However it looks like Sony is about to get some very serious competition from Canon, at least as far the Japanese market is concerned, according to a report from BCN Retail (via Peta Pixel).
The report claims that Canon now commands a whopping 22% of full-frame mirrorless sales in the country, which is very, very impressive when you consider that it was only back in September that Canon launched the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system. It also seems that despite only having one model, Canon has managed to beat out the likes of Nikon who reportedly accounts for about 10% of full-frame mirrorless sales.
With companies such as Nikon and Canon getting into the full-frame mirrorless camera game, you would not be wrong in your assumption that other camera companies might want to get in on it as well, such as Fujifilm. The company has stated in the past that they do not have plans to go full-frame, but it was only recently that they have claimed that they will “never” go full-frame.
For the longest time, Sony has pretty much dominated the full-frame mirrorless camera market as they were essentially the only ones who made such cameras. However in the past month or so, both Nikon and Canon have since come forward with their own full-frame offerings, but apparently that’s not all.
In an announcement by Panasonic, it looks like the company is also throwing their support behind full-frame mirrorless cameras by launching two brand new models: the Lumix S1 and the S1R. Now these aren’t just your typical “me too!” kind of announcements, and what’s interesting about them is that they were actually made in partnership with Leica.
In the mirrorless camera market, Sony used to dominate the full-frame segment, but with entry from the likes of Nikon and Canon, their position is certainly threatened. It also seems to show how there is a growing interest in full-frame mirrorless systems, although this seems to be a market that Fujifilm is avoiding for now.
