What to Expect from Canon in 2022 ?

By on

What to expect next from Canon ? In this 2022 version, you’ll get the latest news and rumors in one place for the upcoming Canon DSLR and mirrorless cameras as well as new lenses.

As you might have heard that it is confirmed by a Canon executive that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be the last DSLR from Canon. Canon will end the development and production of its DSLR cameras, including the flagships, by transforming manufacturing to produce mirrorless systems only. So this 2022 edition of upcoming Canon Cameras will mostly include full frame mirrorless system related news. However we also have some rumors about Canon compact cameras too.

Here are some updated rumors about upcoming Canon cameras & lenses coming in 2022.

Canon EOS R1

Canon is working on a Canon EOS R1 camera, to compete against the Nikon Z9 and Sony Alpha A1. The development announcement of the camera is expected between March to June 2022.

Canon EOS R5C

The Canon EOS R5c, a rumored update of the R5 that boasts a cooling system as not to overheat, will purportedly be released in Q1 2022.

Although Canon’s EOS R5 is a great full-frame mirrorless, due to overheating issues many professional cinematographers are not able to include the EOS R5 in their professional workflow.

The Canon EOS R5c is, according to perpetual leaks, a video-oriented version of the Canon EOS R5 with a number of upgrades – including an active cooling system for “unlimited 8K 30p”, the 21-pin Mult-Function Shoe debuted on the Canon EOS R3, a full-size HDMI port and the Canon Log 2 profile.
