Canon tipped to launch five cameras in 2023, but not the one everyone wants

Next year could be even bigger than the last twelve months for new Canon cameras, with new rumors predicting five new launches in 2023. But as exciting as those new arrivals are, there’s a notable absentee in the list – a cheap full-frame camera.

Canon Rumors‘ list of expected Canon cameras for next year contains three APS-C cameras and two full-frame models. At the more affordable end are the Canon EOS R50 (a budget model that will apparently sit below the Canon EOS R10) and another APS-C camera that will (somehow) slot in between the latter and the Canon EOS R7. A video-focused Canon EOS R7 C may also be en route, but that’s less certain.

Less comprehensive, though, are the predicted full-frame offerings. Anyone who’s been hoping for a successor to the Canon EOS RP – a camera that arrived back in 2019 with the tagline ‘full-frame for the masses’ – may be particularly disappointed. The two models on Canon Rumors’ list are the Canon EOS R5 S (likely to be a high-megapixel beast) and the Canon EOS R5 Mark II, which will be one of the most anticipated cameras of the year.

Yet that excitement will mainly be felt by well-heeled pros or amateurs with big budgets. The current Canon EOS R5 arrived with a $3,899 / £4,199 / AU$6,899 price tag. And if the rumors about its successor are to be believed – a new 61MP BSI sensor, 9.44M-dot EVF and 8K/60p video are in the predicted specs – then the Mark II could be even pricier than that.
