Canon to Release Two More EOS R Cameras in 2021: Report

Canon Rumors is reporting that Canon has not one, but two new EOS R bodies planned for release in 2021. That’s in addition to the already-announced EOS R5 and the rumored EOS R6, both of which are expected in 2020. Unfortunately, details about these cameras are non-existent for now.

Canon to Release Two More EOS R Cameras in 2021: Report

is reporting that Canon has not one, but two new EOS R bodies planned for release in 2021. That’s in addition to the already-announced EOS R5 and the rumored EOS R6, both of which are expected in 2020.

Unfortunately, details about these cameras are non-existent for now. It’s still too early for specs to leak. But based on previous rumors, there are several reasonable assumptions we can make about what these cameras might be.

As points out, an EOS R1 mirrorless camera for sports shooters is almost certainly in the works, and a high-megapixel “EOS R5s” that trades video performance for resolution is definitely possible as well. There are plenty of rumors to support both of those options. A replacement to the entry-level EOS RP is also possible, though it seems too soon for Canon to be focusing on that.

Finally, there has been some talk of an EOS R camera with an APS-C sensor, but given the recent reports that Canon has multiple EOS M cameras and lenses the works, a crop-sensor EOS R seems less likely. To produce crop-sensor cameras in not one, not two, but three mounts at the same time seems like a huge waste of R&D.

Of course, speculating about future cameras seems silly right now, given that we don’t even know when already-announced cameras will ship, or how far camera sales will continue to drop before they begin to rebound. Still, it looks like Canon is determined to attack the full-frame mirrorless space head-on—Nikon, Panasonic, and even well-established Sony will have their work cut out for them over the next couple of years.

Taking Pinhole Portraits of ‘Lockdown Street Bingo’ for World Pinhole Day

Working as an analogue photographer at Little Vintage Photography, Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (#WPPD) is something that I love taking part in every year. Sadly with lockdown happening, the workshops and photowalks I’d normally run were of course, put on hold.

In such strange times and with many aspects of life and lockdown already forcing us to slow down, pinhole and analogue photography actually seemed to be the perfect way of capturing our world and a unique opportunity to record a slice of social history.

I was lucky enough to be sent a an ONDU pinhole camera as a surprise by Elvis and Jessi who are based in Slovenia and which arrived, out of the blue, the day before WPPD!

Our neighbours had put a note through our letterbox that morning to say that they were going to be running ‘Street Bingo’ the following day to raise everyone’s spirits. They asked anyone who wanted to take part to be at their front doors, and they’d call out numbers through a megaphone, with prizes of toilet roll and Prosecco for the winners!

Normally I’d get quite close to my subject with a pinhole camera, because it’s a great way of getting some interesting perspectives, but of course on this occasion that wasn’t possible, so instead, I stood on the opposite side of the road with my wooden 6×9 pinhole camera and simply asked everyone to hold still for 5 seconds.

Luckily, with the beautiful sunshine we’d been enjoying, I was able to use a roll of Ilford HP5+ film, which I rated at 400 ISO, to capture most people in this way. Having now processed the rolls in my home darkroom, it was really exciting to see how they’d come out! Of course, they’re not perfect images, but I think they have a certain charm to them.

Creating this small project and documenting a one-off moment in our street’s history, has given me a little lift. Most importantly of all, as we shouted to our neighbours across the street, it really did feel as though it brought our little community together (at a safe social distance!) with a little joy.

This connection between people and the memories that can be captured, are two of the main reasons why photography is important to me, so although it’s not the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day I thought I’d be having this year, it was definitely memorable.
