Canon will be announcing a brand new camera next week, with promises that it "ushers in an exciting new era". 

Specifically, the new camera will be part of the manufacturer's Cinema EOS System, which includes professional-grade video oriented bodies such as the hybrid RF-mount Canon EOS C70 Super 35mm 4K camera, and the traditional EF/PL-mount Canon EOS C500 Mark II full frame 5.9K camera.

"Canon today announces it will reveal details of a new Cinema EOS System camera on the Canon YouTube page at 13:00 CET on 19th January 2022," stated Canon UK.

Canon was the first company to release an 8K consumer camera in the form of the Canon EOS R5, which set the imaging industry ablaze when it launched in 2020. Since then, however, Canon has seen competitors challenging it in the video sphere with rivals like the Sony A1, Sony A7S III and recently the Nikon Z9.  

With this new camera being part of the Cinema EOS line, though, it seems that Canon is ready to return fire with its latest cutting-edge video product.
