It’s happening: Canon is finally answering our calls for cheaper mirrorless cameras

Canon’s recent launch of the mid-range EOS R7 and EOS R10 was good news for those of us who can’t afford full-frame flagships – and it looks like the camera giant could be following them up with another tantalizingly affordable model. .

The reliable Canon rumors (opens in a new tab) has claimed that “Canon’s next RF-mounted camera is in the field” and will be announced “before November 2022”. Like Canon’s last two releases, the camera will apparently be another APS-C model and “will be a small form factor vlogger” camera likely to compete with the new Nikon Z30. This means it could also be the long rumored Canon EOS R100.

Cameras with APS-C sensors are generally much more affordable than full-frame equivalents. So the launch of a third such RF mount camera – following the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 – will confirm a major shift in Canon’s strategy. And also a very welcome one in today’s tough economic climate.

Even if you’re not in the market for a vlogging camera, the arrival of another APS-C model will be a good sign for affordable Canon cameras. As our Canon EOS R7 review explains, one of the few problems with the camera is the lack of original lenses. Right now there are only two RF-S lenses, an 18-150mm and 18-45mm.
