New Canon EOS Ra full frame mirrorless camera for astrophotography is rumored for 2020. The astrophotography EOS R mirrorless camera will be named as Canon EOS Ra, and it is already appeared on an internal Canon roadmap for 2020.
If you prefer to shoot astrophotography nightscapes including the Milky Way, Meteor Showers or Aurora, a full-frame camera will be your best choice. With this in mind, Canon is planning to introduce a full frame mirrorless camera in EOS R lineup dedicated for astrophotography. According to rumor mill this camera will be named as Canon EOS Ra.
In the past, Canon has released several DSLR models such as EOS 20Da and EOS 60Da for astrophotography. Currently, there is no specs about this EOS Ra full frame astrophotography camera.. More buzz after the break!
Although it is said that Canon is working on a full-frame mirrorless camera like the Canon EOS Ra for astrophotography, we have been facing a lot of different model numbers lately. As can be remembered, two of these are the high resolution 80MP Canon EOS Rs and the Canon EOS RL for landscape photography.
Our opinion is that Canon will diversify the different models for the EOS R in the same way as the Sony A7 series. In this direction, the “S” symbol for the Canon EOS RS represents sport or speed, while the “L” symbol for the Canon EOS RL may indicate landscape and astro-photography.
No specifications are known at this time, as only the model name has appeared on the internal document. There is however a chance that the model name is an internal codename for a different camera.
