Will Canon Release a Full-Frame RF Mount Camera with 100+ Megapixels in 2023?
The latest rumor suggests that “Canon is indeed going to release a full-frame RF mount camera with 100+ megapixels some time in the first half of 2023“. The official announcement could come as early as in Q4 of 2022.
There have been rumors about Canon EOS R high megapixel full-frame camera (EOS R5S?) for quite some time, but this may be the first time that it will appear in 2023. And, There were various rumors about the number of pixels of this camera, such as 75 megapixels, 90 megapixels, over 100 megapixels, but apparently the highest pixel sensor with over 100 million pixels was adopted.
This camera seems to be highly appealing to those who need high resolution anyway, but since high sensitivity performance is a trade-off, it seems that it will be a peaky camera that is not very versatile. If you love recording videos or making movies, you will probably like the Canon EOS R5 or the Canon EOS R6.
