first_imgAnother new year, another new round of juicy camera conjecture. Here’s your officially unofficial 2017 camera rumor roundup!Expectations are high for camera releases in 2017. Just like in years past, we’ve rounded up the latest camera rumors that have appeared online. While a lot of last year’s camera rumors came to fruition, it seems a few might have been a bit too optimistic. So, keep in mind, there are no guarantees here — only hopes and dreams. Here are the best rumors for cameras we may see released in 2017.Canon Camera RumorsWell, last year turned out to be a bust for the Canon 5D Mark IV, but they did roll out some new Cine cameras and updated a majority of the existing line. Here are the latest Canon camera rumors.Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark III4K video recording up to 60fps1080p up to 120fpsSuper 35mm CMOS SensorPL + EF MountISO 100-102,400CFast + SD Card SlotsXF-AVC/MPEG-4 AVC/H.264/ProResRAW capture with external recorderNew anamorphic lens announced alongside its releaseTo be announced in April (ahead of NAB)Rumor via Rumors Dot Camera/Canon Watch /Additional SourcesCanon EOS 1D C Mark II8K video recording up to 30fps4K up to 60fps1080p up to 120fps15 StopsEF MountISO 409,000Dual CFastRumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS 6D Mark II4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fps25 MP sensorDual SD Card slotsArticulating screenNew super-telephoto lensTo be announced Spring/Summer 2017Rumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS Rebel T7i, T7s1080p up to 60fps24MPMax ISO 25,600Wi-Fi, NFCTo be announced in January/FebruaryRumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS M(?)Full-frame mirrorless camera4K video recordingEF-M MountNew prime lensTo be announced in Q4 2017Rumor via Canon Rumors/Additional SourcesSony Camera RumorsSony had another killer year, with their cameras increasing in popularity and their sensors being used in everything from iPhones to Nikons. The Alpha series looks like it will get a new flagship camera in the a9 (also called the a7RIII), as well as an update to the the a7. Sony has already announced the FS7 Mark II, and with their increasingly quick new camera turnaround, we could hear about an FS5 Mark II in the coming months.(Some specs are pretty realistic and on par with current models, as manufacturers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Nikon all suffered delays after the 2016 earthquake in Kumamoto.)Sony XDCAM PXS-FS5 Mark IISuper 35-Sized CMOS SensorSony E Mount6K up to 30fps4K up to 60fps1080p up to 240fpsDual XQD Memory Card SlotsSony Alpha a9/a7R III70-80 MP full-frame sensorDual XQD card slotsInternal 4K up to 60fps1080p up to 120fpsISO 102,400Unlimited RAW burst (based on memory card size)Shipping Q4 2017Rumor via The New Camera / Sony Alpha Rumors / Additional SourcesSony Alpha a7 IIIInternal 4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsISO 102,400To be announced Q2 2017Rumor via Sony Alpha RumorsSony Alpha a670024.2MP sensor4K Video up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsWi-Fi with NFCISO 51200 RED Camera RumorsYou can’t ever really guess what RED is up to. Even when expectations are over the top, the manufacturer tends to exceed them. 2016 saw most RED users getting the ability to shoot up to 8K across the DSMC2 line. Current major directors are using advanced prototypes, like on James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Michael Bay’s commercial and feature work on Transformers: The Last Knight, and David Fincher’s new Mindhunter project for Netflix.Unless you’re an A-list talent (or good friends with one), you probably won’t be getting your hands on any major new RED cameras this year. You can expect to see some more updates to the existing lines.What’s your favorite 2017 camera rumor? Have plans to buy any of these? Let us know in the comments below. Fujifilm Camera RumorsFujifilm hopped into 4K video with the X-T2. There aren’t many rumblings on the next camera with video capabilities, outside of a new color body for the X-T2. (It’s supposedly silver.)Rumor via FujirumorsBlackmagic Camera RumorsBlackmagic is still doing some major overhauls to the URSA Mini firmware. As far as hardware, there’s not been much noise related to any upcoming camera announcements. There is potential for an updated Pocket Cinema Camera, but we’ve been expecting that for a while.

While the manufacturer has cameras that capture video, they never really caught on with video producers. That said, there are a couple of noteworthy cameras for those who primarily shoot Nikon stills and the occasional video. Outside of the rumors, you’ll also see the Nikon D560 come to the US from Europe.Nikon D76024 MP sensor4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsISO 102700-328000014-bit RAWRumor via The New CameraNikon 1 J620.8 MP CMOS SensorTilting touchscreen LCD4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fps720p up to 120fpsWi-FiISO 12800To be announced February 2017Rumor via Nikon RumorsNikon D5XFull-frame sensorNikon F mountHD video recording up to 30fpslast_img
