My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer, utilizing Canon equipment for almost three decades and traversing the globe on wildlife photography shoots. Recently, I came back from a trip to the Okavango Delta and Chobe River. You can follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter, see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com
As I travel to remote places, I am usually out of WiFi range and lack contact with the photography world and news but gain valuable field experiences in testing many Canon gear and equipment.
The bread-n-butter model of Canon's DSLR lineup is the EOS-80D. It has been over 2 years since this camera was announced. My sources informed me the replacement model, EOS-90D will be 'a big leap forward'.
This may mean a lot of things to many photographers but one thing is certain. Canon has been aware the video performance of their latest cameras may not be perceived as competitive as some Sony models, for instance. This does not bother me because my philosophy is as a still photographer, my equipment should be the best in class in one thing, and not try to be best in multiple classes. For those who prefer the best in videography, they should go for the EOS Cinema series of cameras.
Nevertheless, perception is everything these days and Canon is known for a slow, methodical approach to introducing new products and features. Recently, Canon's CEO has expressed his desire to speed up the company's response to new innovations and developments.
My best guess is the EOS-90D may be announced some time in early 2019, perhaps around the CES or CP+ Show. Find out what to expect from Canon in terms of product announcement in the next 12 to 18 months. Keep checking back for the latest development and information.
