A new flagship full-frame mirrorless camera will be arriving in 2024

COMING SOON! The EOS R1

TOKYO, May 15, 2024 — Canon Inc. announced today that it is currently developing the EOS R1, a full-frame mirrorless camera, as the first flagship model for the EOS R SYSTEM equipped with an RF mount and is aiming for a 2024 release.

The EOS R1 is a mirrorless camera geared toward professionals that brings together Canon’s cutting-edge technology and combines top-class performance with the strong durability and high reliability sought in a flagship model. This camera will dramatically improve* the performance of both still images and video and meet the high requirements of professionals on the frontlines of a wide range of fields including sports, news reporting, and video production.

This camera employs the newly developed image processor DIGIC Accelerator in addition to the pre-existing processor DIGIC X. The new image processing system, composed of these processors and a new CMOS sensor, enables large volume of data to be processed at high speeds and delivers never-before-seen advancements in Auto Focus (AF) and other functions.

By combining the new image processing system and deep learning technology to an advanced degree, Canon has achieved high-speed and high-accuracy subject recognition. For example, subject tracking accuracy has been improved so that in team sporting events where multiple subjects intersect, the target subject can continually be tracked even if another player passes directly in front of them. In addition, the AF “Action Priority” function recognizes subject movement by rapidly analyzing the subject’s status. In moments during a sports game when it is difficult to predict what will happen next, this function automatically determines the player performing a certain action, such as shooting a ball, as the main subject and instantly shifts the AF frame, thereby helping to capture decisive moments of gameplay.

The combination of the new image processing system and deep learning technology will help to improve image quality. Canon implements the image noise reduction function, which has been previously developed and improved as part of the software for PCs, as a camera function to further improve image quality and contribute to user creativity.

Canon is working on field tests for this camera, and will support capturing definitive and impactful moments at international sporting events to be held in the future.

Going forward, Canon will continue to expand the EOS R SYSTEM lineup of fascinating cameras and RF lenses, thereby continuing to meet the demands of a wide range of users and contribute to the development of photography and video culture.

I see in my newsfeed that it is a 30 mp body... Correct me if I am wrong .

30 mp is fine for sports sideline photographers. For the flagship cameras it’s about having their name on the sidelines and marketing that. I think the autofocus wars are looking a lot like the pixel wars.

Only official specifications can refute rumors .... Nothing is official yet. But, when we consider the needs of working professionals, the target for these flagship models, the balance of pixel resolution to noise performance in journalistic situations probably lands in the 30MP range in 2024.

I recently took photographs of a Lacrosse game. Very fast moving game totally new to me. I used an Olympus which has the Pro-Capture feature. Pro-Capture allows the user to partially depress the shutter button and the camera starts recording a loop of images. When the shutter button is fully depressed the camera records the desired image as well as records a set number (in my case 20) before and a set number after, if the shutter button is depressed for a few seconds. That is like a little time machine. (It's actually more like a video loop.) It allows the inexperienced user (me as far as the sport) to capture the perfect moment of the action.

I am hoping the Canon has something similar. I think Nikon has a feature that is similar. People yammer about "game changing tech." For me, the Pro-Capture was a game changing tech that saved the day. It bridged the gap between my lack of Lacrosse understanding and getting decent shots that I otherwise would not have.

If Canon accomplished the auto focus features such as focusing on the person who has the ball, that too would be a game changer. Couple that with Pro-Capture? Amazing. In my case, I was there to take pics of a certain player for my friend. If the wizardry of tech could automatically focus on that player in a mass of players, that too would be a huge advantage.

Always glad to have added tech that eventually bleeds down to the lower levels of cameras.

I'd be interested to see what the camera manufactures have as far as support / logistic for the pros at the Olympics. Hogsters tend to focus (pun intended) on the gear side of the equation, but the business side is fascinating to me. I recall that Canon had a massive area where they supplied lenses, replacement bodies, etc to the pros who were in need of gear replacement due to breakdowns or upgrades. I think Sony did the same thing. Oly had some old hippie in a van handing out t-shirts maybe. When organizations like AP start switching brands, it likely has little to do with the gear (all of which can capture great images) but more on costs, support, availability, etc.

Canon and Sony are the big dogs in the tent and deservedly so. Great gear, great support. What's not to like?

Canon has been "developing" the R1 for YEARS Now - mostly teasing ! I am afraid IF and when it gets here - it will be too little too late ....

Or, Canon will again change the industry like the R5 did, just like the 5D did, just like the 1D did, just like the EOS revolution did ....

I thought it was a confusing announcement, some say it was just so they didn't have to hide the test cameras at the olympics;. That makes some sense. All they talked about were speed and sophisticated AF, which any new camera at that level must have. So it sounded like a sports camera to most. But that is also what the R3 is.
I've seen the 30 MP speculation as well (which is more fuel for the sports camera thing)
Canon has officially announced nothing about MP, thus keeping options open. They COULD have 2 sensors ready to go. Canon is crazy proud of their 1 series. I think they are being very careful --perhaps too careful.....
Historically the 1 series was 2 cameras, High Res and speed/ sports. Then the merged those into the 1Dx which was Speed/sports with a 5D S & Sr High res, all the while teasing 100MP and I think even something like 250mp "Experimental sensors".
So this was one of the causes of people assuming that the R1 would be a do it all High Res, and the 20MP R3 seemed to cement that.
But Canon never officially said anything, nor did they discredit any rumors.
I certainly do not know what Canon will do. Whatever camera they make will be a good one that disappoints SOME fraction of their loyal fans, and thrills others. Then life will go on.
Personally, I was hoping for a High Res 1 series. The last 1 series I bought was in 2007. I had one of the first 1Ds III's shipped.(I paid $7995) 22Mp full frame at a time when Nikon did not have a FF camera Nikon's Flagship was (I think) the 12MP F2as a fine aps-c CMOS sensor with great color. So 22mp FF was a big deal. I still own and use that camera along with a 5D IV. I always preferred the 1 series style body, but had no interest in the otherwise great 1Dx.
I tend to shoot at base ISO
I loved and used Nikon since the F, I only switched to Canon because my Nikon Rep kept telling me digital FF is unnecessary. So I switched and have been very happy. I also use several T/S Lenses.
I'm sure I could have been Happy with nikon and would probably own a D850 now.
Camera brands do not make that much difference at the top--they are all good. But I am comfortable with Canon now and their service has been outstanding.
My impression is that Canon has a technical problem of some sort getting sufficient speed from a High Res Flagship sensor (I do not KNOW that) and that there is internal debate about World's Highest Res FF / Worlds Fastest FF..... so they have been dragging this out while the R5 sells tons of cameras.
Only Canon knows what they will do, and I'd bet that they are not sure yet either.
We'll Get what we get, and some folks will be thrilled.
That's my take

And you know that it's not as good as the R5 right?

Given an R1 doesn't exist, it would have a hard time being better than the market defining EOS R5 ....

The ruggedness of the Flagship models have offered a different camera from the brand's high-resolution models, now for several years and models. The highest pixel resolution hasn't been the top feature; rather, things like the AF performance, ISO performance, and frame-per-second inside the most weather resistant body take precedence. If you want a different list of features, there are options from every brand.

Your reference to Nikon F2as is wrong. That camera was a film camera made in the mid 70s early 80s.

Sorry, what was the correct name of Nikon’s last aps c which I think was a ccd, flagship.
It was the one before the D3/ D300 launch?
I should have known that, I still have an F3

You're probably referring to the D90. I had one for years - took over 30,000 shots. Great camera!
