Canon to release a $799 full frame RF mount camera in 2022?

The Canon EOS RP is currently the cheapest Canon RF camera – but could that all change? (Image credit: Canon)

Hold onto your hats Canon fans! A new rumor has appeared that might just be one of the most interesting things we've heard so far this year. Apparently, Canon could be planning to release a full frame RF mount camera for under $800 in 2022. It should be noted that it's worth taking this rumor with a healthy pinch of salt, but if it does pan out to be true, then this could be a very welcome move from Canon.

So far, all of the RF mount Canon cameras released have been full frame – and the cheapest so far was the Canon EOS RP, which was launched at $1,299. Offering a full frame Canon RF camera for under $800 / £578 / AU$1,070 would not only be a fantastic way to offer entry-level users an affordable way into the RF system, but it would also undercut rivals offering smaller APS-C sensors at a similar price.
