Canon’s new EOS R5 and EOS R6 digicam bulletins anticipated round July 2nd

It seems to be like we would lastly have an precise stable and agency worth on the upcoming Canon EOS R5 as Canon Rumors studies that an announcement could also be coming as quickly as Thursday, July 2nd. Not solely that, however they are saying that we’ll hear an official announcement for the extra secretive Canon EOS R6 on the identical time.

Whereas there was various info fed out in regards to the upcoming Canon EOS R5 since its early teasers (no official worth but, clearly), Canon has mentioned just about nothing in regards to the EOS R6. There have been a number of rumours right here and there, however nothing stable as but. It’s anticipated, although, that availability for each fashions shall be introduced on the identical day.

In addition to the attainable July 2nd announcement, CR says they’ve additionally been informed that it might really occur on July sixth. This is able to put an announcement both the day earlier than or the day after the July 4th long-weekend festivities. They do be aware, nevertheless, that there shall be restricted availability till not less than the top of July.

At any time when it comes, the announcement ought to fill in a number of lacking bits of details about the EOS R5 that had not but been confirmed.
