Canon’s camera with 100MP will be released soon


New reports suggest that Canon is working on breaking the 100-megapixel mark with an all-frame model that’s not available in this year’s lineup.

Canon Rumors (opens within an entirely separate tab) is confident that the camera that has a 100MP resolution is thought to have been dubbed”the Canon EOS R5s is on the verge of being designed. The new article on the website which claims that gives an overall score for the reliability of rumour that equates the status quo with “fact” and claims that it has “been informed that Canon will indeed launch a full-frame camera mounted on RF with 100+ megapixels, sometime in the first quarter in 2023”.

It may seem like a distance from now, but we’ll hear about the high-resolution camera before its release. Canon Rumors states it could be possible that “the announcement could come later in 2022” The announcement will likely be an announcement from a developer, similar to those that we’ve seen in earlier cameras, like the Canon EOS R3. Canon EOS R3.

These reports pose several fundamental concerns. First, what is the best place to put the model with 100MP in Canon’s EOS R lineup? While it might appear to be an expensive version, Canon is also strongly believed to be working on a Canon EOS R1 to be the most prestigious of its mirrorless lineup.

But… why?

Canon EOS R5s and its 100MP camera have turned out to be the perfect replacement for the 50-megapixel Canon 5DS DSLR. We gave this camera five-star ratings when it was first released in the year 2015 as it’s the best-resolution Canon consumer camera that purchased (impressively priced at less than $1000 (or PS1,000 second-hand today, if you’re looking for a used model).

The trickier issue to address is the reason Canon seems to be attempting to develop a full-frame 100MP camera at all in the first place. Landscape and studio photographers can benefit from a great deal of resolution, useful when creating huge wall-length prints.

However, the quality of photographs is likely to be lower than those higher in resolution, images of up to 50MP. This suggests that a second aspect that we are familiar with will be in the picture.

Recent reports through The Photo Rumors (opens in the new tab) suggest that Sony plans to launch the new 61-megapixel Sony A7RV later this year, and Fuji already has its 102 megapixels Fujifilm GX100S in its GFX lineup for medium-format. The report suggests that photographers must be prepared for the long-running tradition of the race to the most megapixels.

Analysis: A resolution is no longer an act of revolution

The reports of Canon’s first 100MP full-frame camera came to light a couple of days after a kitten-themed Samsung teaser showed off its camera phone’s brand new 200MP sensor. It’s possible to see it in a brand-new Motorola phone scheduled to be launched this summer. Are we approaching the end of a technological revolution?

However, not as very much. The only constant thing is that megapixels will be beneficial for marketing. Still, images will be more complicated when you have cameras with 100MP and target professionals who aren’t fooled by the huge headlines.

A small but important portion of professionals who shoot (and Archivists) will likely require an update to the new mirrorless Canon EOS 5DS, particularly because the new RF lenses can boost the quality of photographs to a higher standard when used in conjunction with a camera with 100 megapixels.

Canon is also losing some ground over the last couple of years, but Fujifilm’s mid-format range of GFX and Sony’s new A7R series offer stunning, high-resolution options and the Sony A7R V is believed to be on the way.

However, the advantages derived from resolution aren’t as good as they were in the past. Certain cameras like Sony’s A7R IV have now been upgraded to include the “Pixel Shift mode, which moves the sensor one pixel at a time to boost your camera’s resolution by up to four times. They also shoot photos which range from 61 to 240 millimetres.

The issue is that this is the best solution for stationary subjects. But an alternative, more flexible and adaptable AI technology is in place which can improve the quality of any photo. Both Adobe’s “Super Resolution” option and Topaz Gigapixel AI let you enhance the number of pixels in the image by 4 times following the time the photograph was taken and produce astonishingly clear results.

Pixel-savvy photographers might not be a fan of these post-processing techniques, but these advances render the improvement in camera resolution unimportant. We’re still content to watch another battle between the megapixels, particularly if high-resolution cameras of the moment are substituted by something cheaper.
