The last time we saw Canon release a mirrorless camera was back in 2015 with the Canon EOS M3. So now that we’re in 2016, does that mean we can expect a new mirrorless from Canon? According to the folks at Canon Rumors, the answer is yes, and that we will most likely be seeing it by the end of the year.
According to the report, the camera will be the successor to the EOS M3 of 2015, which we guess isn’t a surprise. However it seems that Canon will be taking a page out of Samsung’s book and will be skipping one generation, meaning that instead of the EOS M4, it will apparently be called the EOS M5. We don’t know why they did that, but maybe it will be different enough to warrant skipping a generation.
The report goes on to add that in terms of ergonomics, there won’t be any major changes meaning that for the most part, the design should remain relatively the same. It will also be adopting an APS-C sensor, and it will apparently be a bit more up market compared to the EOS M3.
Other than that, not much else is known about the camera, like will it support 4K video recording, are there any changes made to its display, and so on, so for now it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt, but check back in the coming weeks where hopefully more details will be revealed.
