Are video capabilities going to be a much bigger segment of the DSLRs coming from Canon?
Holy cow don't we all hope so?
That would be huge.
When I've talked with Canon in the past, I've always been told that they believed they had a strong video component to their DSLRs – which is true really – but the overwhelming sentiment is that folks like Sony are crushing the video from Canon with their mirrorless line.
So if this is true, it will certainly be a welcome addition. I mean, what could it hurt?
Video Capabilities Will Be at the Heart of All Future Canon Prosumer Camera Bodies [CR2]
Via Canon Rumors:
We’re told a big selling point of all future Canon prosumer camera bodies will be video capabilities. Internally Canon has had a lot of discussion about improving the perceived feature set of prosumer cameras to match the likes of Sony and Panasonic.
We consider a prosumer DSLR to be anything EOS 7D Mark II and up. That said, we don’t think Canon has anything currently we’d consider prosumer in the mirrorless space, as much as I like the EOS M5 and EOS M50. Feel free to disagree on the latter.
The source claims that Canon no longer wants to lose the “spec war” with their future camera releases. This way of thinking is trickling down to various Canon subsidiaries around the globe to prepare for the changes coming.
As we mentioned yesterday, there’s likely going to be an accelerated product development cycle over the next 18-24 months, and video will be central to it.
