An 8K 60p Canon cinema camera is already in the field (report)
An 8K 60p cinema camera could combine the C500's chassis with the C70's RF mount

Not only has Canon developed a cinema camera capable of recording 8K 60p video, but a "beta version" of that camera is already being field tested, according to the latest rumors emerging online. 

In addition to its headline 8K 60p, this new Cinema EOS camera will also be capable of capturing 4K 90p – both in 12-bit RAW. It will feature a Super35mm image sensor and will almost certainly, following the lead of the new Canon EOS C70, feature the new RF mount.
