New Canon DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras Coming Down The Pipeline




My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer and I have used Canon equipment for over three decades. Throughout the years, I have embarked on many worldwide photo shoots. You can follow my travels on Facebook , Twitter and see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com

I attended an invitation only Canon EOS-R event last night in California and had a hands-on session with the production camera, all the RF lenses and adapters.

The feel of the body with the BG-E22 grip is reassuring for those who are used to grips on their EOS-5D and EOS-1 bodies. The LCD rear panel is super sharp but unfortunately, those are the only two things that impressed me.

The layout of the buttons and functionalities on the EOS-R are so different from the EOS DSLR series and the new features are not enough for me to spend time and money learning, adjusting and building a new line of lenses for my equipment bag.

For those who are willing to build up another line of lenses and like to keep their present EF glass, the EF - EOS-R adapter is simple and straight forward to use but the other two adapters with control ring and drop in filter features are 'solutions' to an non-existent problem and a waste of money.

I am waiting to upgrade my EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS-7D Mark II bodies to the Mark III models. They should be announced by the middle of 2019 or before. Below are some upcoming Canon announcements discovered through their certification applications.
