2. Canon EOS R5 Latest Press Release via Canon Australia

Press text:

Sydney, AUSTRALIA, 13th March 2020: Canon INC has today released further development specifications for its recently announced Canon EOS R5, the next-generation full-frame interchangeable lens camera in the company’s EOS R System. These additional details come exactly one month since Canon released the development announcement of the EOS R5 and shut down speculation that some of its revolutionary specifications are ‘a fantasy’.

Signalling a new phase of Canon 5-Series imaging and a revolution in the mirrorless full camera category, Canon’s EOS R5 will offer every photographer – not just professionals – access to high-quality imaging, cutting-edge 8K movie recording, new approaches to in-body image stabilisation, and revolutionary subject detection and tracking performance features.

New possibilities for movie performance
Unleashing new possibilities, Canon Inc. confirms the EOS R5’s video capabilities will exceed that of competing cameras on the market1. With its ability to internally record 8K using the full width of the sensor at up to 30p, the latest Canon EOS R camera is set to redefine mirrorless with its market-leading features. In addition, in all 8K modes the EOS R5 will support Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

A beast for subject detection and tracking performance for animals and people
Canon Inc. also confirms the EOS R5 supports advanced animal AF – recognising dogs, cats and birds, relying not only on the eyes of the animal but also the face and body for situations when the eyes are not visible.

Jason McLean, Director – Consumer Imaging & Services, Canon Australia, said: “Our EOS 5-Series was developed fifteen years ago to make full-frame cameras accessible to consumers, not just professional shooters. Today, that purpose remains steadfast as we continue achieving the ‘impossible’ to deliver the hybrid needs of content creators who are demanding uncompromised performance to generate more still and motion visual content than ever before.”

“With its game changing 8K movie capabilities, new approaches to image stabilisation, revolutionary subject detection, and compatibility with Canon’s full suite of EF2 and RF lenses, the EOS R5 represents a category revolution as opposed to product evolution in the interchangeable-lens camera market.”

The EOS R5 specifications previously confirmed by Canon include:
• The EOS R5 offers a step-change in performance with an incredible 12fps using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter offering 20fps
• The EOS R5 takes Canon’s cutting-edge image stabilisation technology to the next level, by including a newly Canon-developed, in-camera image stabilisation system – which works in combination with the lens stabilisation system
• With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R5 supports automatic transfer of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform3
• The highly anticipated EOS R5 will feature dual card slots
• Upon launch, the Canon EOS R5 will also be supported by Canon Australia’s 5-year warranty when purchased from an authorised local dealer4.

Canon EOS R5 Killed 1DX Mark III Sales ?

We know that Canon is in DSLR cannibalization mode from March 2018. But, they have done something weird that no one ever expected from Canon. Just after 1 month, from the announcement of Canon 1DX Mark III camera, Canon announced the development announcement of Canon EOS R5 camera. With far better core specification we have in the Canon 1DX Mark III and despite being a more compact mirrorless camera Canon EOS R5 will have in-body IBIS and DUAL card slots.

Canon 1DX Mark III Sales chopped off  in favour of Mirrorless?

It looks like Canon doesn’t want to disappoint their professional DSLR camera users, and that’s why they have introduced the Canon 1DX Mark III camera on time with a decent set of upgrades. At the same time they are also willing to move their user base on Mirrorless zone as per the DSLR cannibalization policy they have. As expected, just after the announcement of Canon EOS R5 (development announcement) we are getting feedback from Canon users those who were waiting for 1DX Mark III, now they are waiting for Canon EOS R5. It clearly indicates that Canon is now preferring Mirrorless cameras more compared to their DSLR range.

World First 8K M4/3 Mirrorless Camera Developed by SHARP

World First 8K M4/3 Mirrorless Camera Developed by SHARP, the prototype was displayed at CES event and according to SHARP representatives the camera will officially arrive at the end of 2019. It’s really interesting to see how this camera performs when we record 8K videos. And one of the most amazing thing is the Camera also carries built-in IS mechanism. I still remember Panasonic representatives told us they have removed IBIS from Panasonic GH5s camera due to heat dissipation issues. So, let’s hope for the best and Sharp new M4/3 8K solution will open new gateways for existing camera makers. BTW, they can do reverse engineering also to create their own iterations  😉

SHARP 8K M4/3 Mirrorless Camera Core Specifications

8k at 30 fps in H.265 codec (Sharp is working on 60 fps)
Price under $5,000
Micro Four Thirds format
5″ inch large touchscreen
1 SD card slot [only]

Ultra Compact BMC design
Offifical Announcement on NAB 2019

Take a look at the interview of Sharp representatives at CES show

Dual base ISO Coming to Sony A7S III

TNC Exlusive: Dual base ISO coming to Sony A7S III. According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Sony may implement Dual base ISO at Sony A7S III camera.

From Initial reports, its look like the prototypes of the camera have the Dual Base ISO feature, we do hope that the feature will continue in the production version of the camera.

It’s really a great news for professional filmmakers and serious youtubers if true. Dual native ISO means exactly there are two optimal settings of the camera. So, at native ISO is where Camera Performs best in-terms of SNR (signal to Noise ratio) and Dynamic Range.

Native ISO is actually a saturation point of any camera at which the analogue signal does not need to be modified before it converted into Digital Signal and you get optimal image quality.

So, in Dual base ISO we have two Values first is High Base ISO (ex 2500) and other is low base ISO (ex 500). Increasing the ISO above the lower base number amplifies the output but also increases noise in the image. But when the ISO reaches the higher base ISO, the circuit is switched so the photosites output higher levels without applying the additional gain.

Sony A7S III Specs / hints from Sony

In an recent interview with Sony Kenji Tanaka said

” (A7S II users)They want 4K/60p, 4:2:2 10-bit, and of course more battery power, increased AF accuracy – many things!”

But later in an interview he also added that

dpreview says, Sony’s Kenji Tanaka told us the a7S II successor would be “more than [a7S II users] expect.”

What actually coming inside Sony A7S III ?

Sony very clearly hinting us that upcoming camera have either 6K or 8K video recording options. And as we have published that Sony upcoming A7S III, Sony A7R IV and Sony A9 II camera will have 8K video recording capability. 8K video recording capability doesn’t mean you will get a 8k output, as we know the current line-up of Sony alpha fullframe and mirrorless camera uses 6K videos (Full sensor readout) to create 4K videos.

8K on Micro 4/3 is complicated, if not impossible.

Ok, now its also important to look back a bit, Panasonic M4/3 8K Camera news is not new. Back on Feb 2018 we have published news that Panasonic successfully developed 36MP M4/3 sensor which records 4K videos. For more details you can check here

 Olympus 8K Mirrorless camera in Future RoadMap

It all started with Olympus, when the reveled their future strategy in their Annual Report of 2017. In an Annual report published by Olympus mentioned about the development of 8K video and PRO Lenses for their MFT lineup

Take a look at the important announcements made by Olympus back in 2017

1) Focus on the development of high-value-added mirrorless cameras (primarily OM-D series) and interchangeable lenses

(PRO series) boasting competitive prices

2)  Develop systems that allow for improved efficiency in new product manufacturing start-ups and mass production by

transferring production to Vietnam

3) Establish comprehensive range of technologies for 4K and 8K video, development of devices necessary for recording at

these resolutions, and optimization of interface with outputs (monitors)

So, competition is always very healthy and consumers will get advantage of it. But at the same time are we ready for 8K on our camera. Since we need high speed processing computers and 8K display units.
