For amateur photographers, having a single memory card in your camera is usually good enough to get the job done. However, professionals who need to be constantly moving and shooting, such as at a wedding, a single memory card is definitely not enough. This is why cameras that support dual memory cards tend to be favored by the pros.
The good news for Canon photographers looking to hop onto the EOS R system is that according to a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard that for Canon’s next EOS R camera, it could actually come with a dual memory card slot. This is actually not the first time we’ve heard this and in the past, it has also been suggested that in-body image stabilization could also be a potential feature.
We’re not sure when this camera will be launched, but the speculation is that it could take place this February. In addition to dual memory cards, other rumored features include a 75MP full-frame CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 9 processor, a joystick navigation feature similar to the EOS 1D X Mark III, a fully articulating screen, and it could also be fully weather sealed.
Recently, there have also been talks about Canon working on a EOS R camera with an EF/RF hybrid mount, but we’re not sure if that could be a feature for this camera.
