Canon’s Big Announcement is Tomorrow | Here’s Everything We Expect to See
Canon’s big product announcement is happening tomorrow, July 9, 2020 at 8:00am EST. You can watch it live at www.usa.canon.com/virtualproductlaunch. If you can’t wait that long, there’s a lot that we already know about what Canon is planning to release. The two highlights of the announcement should be the EOS R5, and the so-far unannounced EOS R6. The R5 is easily the most anticipated camera of the year, and for good reason. On top of its impressive specs like it’s 20fps electronic shutter, the R5 will be the first full-frame mirrorless camera to offer 8K RAW video recording at 30fps.
