Almost immediately after the Canon EOS R3 was announced, people were already asking about the Canon EOS R1, Canon’s future flagship camera.
We have been told that the Canon EOS R1 is scheduled for the 2nd half of 2023 for an announcement and that we could see teasers beginning in the spring.
The latest information says that Canon’s new flagship will be the “new resolution king” as well as a big focus on 8K video production and tying in with Cinema EOS, though it won’t get a “C” variant. With Sony, Nikon and Leica topping out at around 60mp for stills, that would put the Canon north of that if the reports are true.
We are also told that the form factor and ergonomics will take a step forward, mixing what we expect from a Canon flagship camera, along with some new features. Canon has spent a lot of the development speaking with shooters, and especially EOS R3 professionals.
More to come…
