Fuji X-H2 camera

Fuji X-H1 was announced on Feb of 2018 and we are sure that Fuji will take at least 2 year of time to replace its flagship cinema Mirrorless camera. It’s look like someone inside Fuji working tirelessly to bring Fuji X-H2 in front of us 🙂

The Fuji X-H2 sales flyer spotted by Photography blog website on London Camera Exchange stand at the Photography Show. BTW, on of the best typo error I have ever seen in my life.

Canon 1DX Mark III Coming in Q1 of 2020

Yes, In my opinion Canon is clearly talking about introduction time of Canon flagship DSLR camera Canon 1dx Mark III. When interviewer from DPreview asked “Olympics in 2020 is coming up – what will we see” . Then Canon clearly hinted us that we will going to announce a Pro Model at that time.

Yep – they are taking about 1DX Mark III.

1. Canon 1dx Mark III  Announcement Time hint

Q. The Tokyo Olympics in 2020 is coming up – when we look at photographers shooting with Canon at Tokyo in two years time, what will we see?

A. The Tokyo Olympics is a very important opportunity for us. If we look at the professional camera market, we would like to introduce a professional model at that time. Having said that, we take reliability very seriously. So when we talk about [creating] a model for the Olympics, we’re not just talking about performance. We’re also want to make sure that we can achieve the same level of reliability that we’ve always delivered [in our professional DSLRs].

Now, we have clear hint that canon will going to announce the 1dx mark III camera before 2020 Olympics. Or may be they are talking about introduction of a completely new Pro body DSLR body ? .. Keep in mind that every Canon DSLRs are announced under a series (either entry level, mid or high-end), And if Canon is talking about a Pro DSLR that clearly means they are talking about the 1DX Series for sure.

2. Canon 1DX Mark III  in Q1 of 2020

Olympics 2020

Now let’s talk about the timeframe when 1dx Mark 3 camera will going to be announced ? The 2020 Olympics will going to start from, Friday 24 July 2020 and will going to end on 9 August 2020.

3. Life-cycle of Canon FF Flagship DSLR camera Camera

In general Canon keep 4 to 5 years of Gap to announce a Pro Flagship body, but due to intense market completion we may see Pro DSLR before scheduled announcement date.

4. Announcement Time vs Shipping Time

Canon 1DX Mark II was announced in Feb 2016 and the shipping of the camera was started from April 2016.

Now, you have to understand that there is a difference between the announcement of a product and the shipping of a product. If any manufacturer announces a camera today then in general it shipping will going to start from after 2 or 3 months of time.

5. End of 2019 or Beginning of 2020

So, clearly means Canon 1dx Mark III is somehow scheduled to arrive at the end of 2019 or maybe in the beginning / Q1 of 2020. So photographers can get hands-on camera before 2020 Olympics.

Thanks Canon for letting us know that yes you are working restlessly to bring up new flagship camera for us before the 2020 Olympics.

Do share your thoughts and suggestion with us.

Canon EOS M50 Limited 4K isn’t a Tech Issue

Canon EOS M50 limited 4K

During an interview with dpreview team Canon accepted that Canon EOS M50 (Amazon | B&H ) mirrorless camera Limited 4K mode ( you get no CMOS autofocus support while creating a 4K video with that camera). is not technical issue, the features are bit Limited because the EOS M50 is entry level mirrorless camera.

Take a look what Canon said on limited 4K mode of EOS M50

The EOS M50 offers 4K video and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, but not at the same time. Is there a technical reason for this limitation?

With the EOS 5D Mark IV, we do offer 4K video and Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, so technically it is feasible. But given the position of the M50 in the lineup, we can’t include all of the features available in a product like the 5D IV. Given the position of the product, we wanted to achieve the optimal balance [of features] in a camera in that range. We’ve optimized the M50 as best we can [for its market position], and within those parameters, the combination of 4K video and Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus was not possible.

Ok, but my question is once you added DPAF sensor inside the camera then why you are limiting its performance ? Imagine if Canon EOS 50 have 4K with DPAF support it will sure kill the sales of Panasonic GX85 as well as other entry-level and Mid-range mirroless camera.

Dear Canon Photographers….We need your opinion on this.
