The Canon EOS C100 successor camcorder is rumored to be announced in early 2015, before the beginning of the NAB Show 2015.
According to sources, the next Canon Cinema EOS camera will be the replacement of Canon EOS C100, not the C300 or C500 successor. The C100 successor will be released before NAB 2015 in April.
The rumor mill is also in talks of the Canon C300 and C500 replacement models. Canon could also replace both C300 and C500. However, they will probably be announced after the C100 successor.
