I already reported that Canon is working on the full frame mirrorless camera, and according to the latest rumors, the new Canon full frame mirrorless camera will be announced in 2016, and some sort of early prototype already exists.
The source said that some sort of early prototype already exists, though it never came out of Canon’s labs. Maybe it is still undergoing lab tests and development.
And, in an interview with DPReview, Masaya Maeda, Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations at Canon, confirmed that Canon is working on serious mirrorless camera system other than EOS-M.
Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution?
Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
In addition, Canon filed a new patent: an EF/EF-S adaptor for full frame mirrorless cameras.
The Canon EOS M3 mirrorless camera has been officially announced in USA and it will be released on October 4, 2015, according to Amazon US. And the rumors said that the new Canon EOS M4 Mirrorless Camera will be a global product and it will be announced in the first part of 2016.
As you know, the new Canon 5Ds & 5Ds R cameras feature super resolution 50MP full frame sensor, so what we will see on Canon Full frame Mirrorless Camera?
