Rumours about Canon releasing new mirrorless full-frame cameras are bubbling under, with the Japanese company apparently set to release three EOS R devices. The EOS RS has taken the lead on rumours so far, but new leaks about the EOS R5 and EOS R6 are fuelling speculation that Canon is planning to overhaul its EOS R range.

According to rumours, Canon is set to release three new mirrorless full-frame cameras this year, specifically EOS R-branded units. Reported by Canon Rumors, the Japanese company was apparently readying the EOS RS, EOS R5 and EOS R6. While newer information has nixed the idea of the EOS RS coming to market, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 are still set to arrive later this year.

The EOS R6 is supposedly the cheaper camera of the two, with it set to feature a 20 MP full-frame sensor, along with a 5-axis image stabiliser (IBIS). Canon Rumors claims that the EOS R6 will launch in May or June, with its money on the former rather than the latter. The EOS R6 will apparently be capable of shooting 4K videos at 60 FPS, too.

Meanwhile, the EOS R5 will also include 5-axis IBIS, but with a 45 MP full-frame sensor instead. The camera can apparently shoot in 4K at 120 FPS or 8K at 30 FPS, too. Moreover, it will support 5 GHz Wi-Fi and dual card slots. According to Canon Rumors, the EOS R5 will launch in July, but Canon will unveil it at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2020 on February 13.

Pricing for either camera is yet to be offered, though.
