Canon 8K Video Capable EOS R Camera is on the Way

Imaging-Resource has published a new interview with Canon Executives, taking about the future of Canon EOS R mirrorless system and RF lenses. Canon Executives confirmed that an 8K video capable EOS R camera is in their roadmap and it is already in development. In addition, Canon is working on how to make RF lenses better for video capture.

Here are some interesting quotes from the interview:

The sales performance of EOS R camera and RF lenses is almost in line with our original expectation.

We developed the EOS R System for the next 30 years, and started by introducing higher-end RF lenses. Yes, we are very serious about mirrorless. But please do not get the wrong impression, we will continue to enhance DSLR technology and products as well.

The typical development cycle for a camera is on the order of 18 months or thereabouts.

Video will play a huge role in the EOS R System for sure. For example, an 8K video capable camera is already in our EOS R-series roadmap. And we are not just looking at video from a camera perspective, we are also working on how to make RF lenses better for video capture as well.
