We have reported several times that Canon is working hard on a new high-megapixel EOS R full frame mirrorless camera (Canon EOS R5S?). And there were various rumors about the number of pixels of this camera, such as 75 MP, 90 MP, over 100 MP, and Canon hasn’t yet internally decided on which image sensor will come in the new high-megapixel RF mount camera…. but now it is almost confirmed that the highest pixel sensor with over 100 megapixels is adopted.
Canon Rumors reported that “Canon is indeed going to release a full-frame RF mount camera with 100+ megapixels some time in the first half of 2023“. This camera will probably be named “Canon EOS R5S“. The official announcement could come as early as in Q4 of 2022.
The previous rumors said the new high-megapixel Canon EOS R series camera was being tested by a very select group of photographers as a finished product. And, the high-megapixel Canon EOS R series camera is not simply going to be an EOS R5 body with a higher resolution sensor, but a camera deasigned specifically for landscape and studio photographers. So it may be a camera that is quite different from the EOS R5 in terms of body design and functions. If you love recording videos or making movies, you will probably like the Canon EOS R5 or the Canon EOS R6.
Canon EOS R5S Rumored Specifications:
- Approximately 100MP full-frame CMOS image sensor
