Last week a report from Canon Watch revealed some of the potential specs from Canon’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera. Now thanks to a post from Nokishita Camera, more alleged specs of the upcoming camera have been revealed, some of which corroborates the previous report, and some of which is brand new information.

What’s interesting about these specs is that it shares something in common with Nikon’s recently announced mirrorless cameras, and that is they will only have support for one SD card (Nikon’s only supports one XQD card). This means that for certain professionals, such as wedding photographers, this might not be the camera for them.

This is because one SD card slot can be dangerous as it means should the card fail, there is no backup, whereas the chances of two cards failing at the same time is lower. Whether or not this is a deal-breaker for some remains to be seen, but it should be worth noting all the same. Other specs include a 30.3MP sensor, dual pixel RAW support, an EVF, ISO sensitivity ranging from 100 to 40,000, continuous shooting of 8fps, 4K video recording at 30fps, and a 3.15-inch touch screen on the back.

It is unclear as to what kind of lenses this camera will use. With Nikon we’ve seen how the company has adopted a new Z-mount which also led to the launch of several native Z-mount lenses. It has not been mentioned if Canon will be heading down the same path, but we should find out soon enough as Canon’s rumored EOS R is said to be officially announced on the 4th of September.
