Canon Eye Controlled AF Coming for Mirrorless

According to a latest patent Canon is working on a eye-controlled autofocus for their upcoming Mirrorless camera. The EOS-3 was the first Canon camera to introduce eye-controlled autofocus back on November 1998.

How Eye Controlled AF Work

The camera features  a infrared transmitter and receiver mounted around the eyepiece monitored the position of the iris, thus “knowing” where the photographer was looking and focusing on that point. At that time the system was having some system limitations however, notably eyeglasses and occasionally contact lenses would confuse the system.

New Eye AF Patent for Mirrorless Camera

Patent Details Machine translated

In addition, a display element 10 composed of a liquid crystal or the like for displaying a captured image, a display element driving circuit 11 for driving the display element 10, and an eyepiece 12 for observing a subject image displayed on the display element 10 are provided. Has been placed.   Reference numerals  13a to 13b denote light sources for illuminating the photographer’s eyeball 14 for detecting the direction of the line of sight from the relationship between the elephant and the pupil reflected by the cornea reflection of the light source conventionally used in a single-lens reflex camera or the like. The infrared light emitting diode is disposed around the eyepiece 12. The illuminated eyeball image and the image by corneal reflection of the light sources 13a to 13b are transmitted through the eyepiece lens 12, reflected by the light splitter 15, and the eyeball lens in which the photoelectric element array of the CCD ridge is arranged two-dimensionally by the light receiving lens 16. An image is formed on the image sensor 17. The light receiving lens 16 positions the pupil of the photographer’s eyeball 14 and the image sensor 17 for the eyeball in a conjugate imaging relationship. The line-of-sight direction is detected by a predetermined algorithm, which will be described later, from the positional relationship between the eyeball imaged on the eyeball image sensor 17 and the corneal reflection of the light sources 13a to 13b. 

So, Canon will be implementing Eye AF in their pro mirrorless camera in 2021-2022. In general once a patent gets registered it takes 2 to 3 years to become a real product.

Canon 25-300mm Lens Patent for Mirrorless Camera

Recent patent we have seen Canon is working on super zoom lenses for its Fullframe Mirrorless and Fullframe DSLRs camera. One of the most  the most important attractive then we have seen is the 25 to 300 mm lens which covers Almost 90% of starting from Wide Angle shots to telephoto.

Canon Fullframe Mirrorless Lens Patent

1.Focal distance: 29.22  – 350.06  F 2.8 – 4.5

  • – 4.50 – Half angle of view: 32.15
  • – 3.5 – Image height: 18.36
  • – 21.61 – Total length: 406.68
  • – 406.68 – Back focus: 22.42 – 22.42

2.RF 25-300 mm F 3.5-5.6

  • – Focal distance: 25.20-294.41
  • – F value: 3.50
  • – 5.60 – Half angle of view: 36.72
  • – 4.20 – Image height: 18.80
  • – 21.61 – Total length: 374.08
  • – 374.08 – Back focus: 21.75 – 21.75

As you can see the details of the two above lenses having shorter Back Focus distance. One lens is focal length of 25-300mm with aperture ange F6.5-F5.6 and other lens we have in the list is the 30mm to 350mm with aperture range F2.8-F4.5. Literally with bit extra wide coverage the 25-300mm Lens is commercially more usable than the 30-350mm lens.

Not only the above two lenses we also have two DSLRs lenses those who give extreme coverage, you can  say these lenes are being inspired from Canon EOS Cinema (PL Mount) lenses.As usually PL Mount lenses give extreme coverage but they are costly too.

Canon Fullframe DSLRs Lens Patent

1. Canon EF 35-350 mm F 3.5-5.6

  • – Focal length: 35.04-350.37
  • – F value: 3.50
  • – 5.60 – Half angle of view: 30.36
  • – 3.5 – Image height: 20.53
  • – 21.61 – Total length: 321.17
  • – 321.17 – Back focus: 40.10 – 40.10

2. Canon EF 35-400mm F 4.5-5.6

  • – Focal distance: 35.13 – 386.45 – F value: 4.50
  • – 5.60 – Half angle of view: 30.30
  • – 3.20 – Image height: 20.53
  • – 21.61 – Total length: 362.82
  • – 362.82 – Back focus: 54.68 – 54.68

But as you can see the Focal length of both the lenses are exactly same at wider end starting from 35mm bit at tele end one is having 350mm coverage and other having 400mm coverage. The Lens made of Canon Fullframe DSLRs having 35-350mm focal length and aperture range F3.5-5.6 look bit more usable to me compared to 35-400mm lens with F4.5-5.6 aperture.

By looking at these patent data one thing is sure that Canon  really planned something great for thir mirroless fullframe camera as well as Fullframe DSLRs. Which lens is your fav lens among the list of four lenses do share with us.
