Report: Canon to launch 8K and 4K full frame cine cameras, plus RF cine lenses

Is an 8K, full-frame follow-up to the Canon EOS C500 Mark II on the way next year?

We were expecting a lot from Canon in terms of new Cinema EOS cameras this year, but things have been disappointingly quiet. As we approach 2022, though, that may change dramatically, as a new 4K and a pair of new 8K cinema cameras are apparently on the way – along with a new line of RF cinema lenses.

The company has been steadily building a reputation in this area for many years now, and it seems to have paid off. Last year saw the release of the hybrid Canon EOS C70, featuring a DSLR-style body and RF mount, along with the pure Canon EOS C300 Mark III. However, both were Super 35mm cameras – and we haven't had a sniff of a new full frame Canon cine cam.
