Looks like our hopes and dreams regarding Canon EOS R1 might come to fruition after an incredibly reliable source has pulled the rug on the specifications of this model which looks like something out of the dream and in fact too good to be true.

This might be our chance to take a jab at the information provided after cross-checking it on various boards, forums, and subreddits, allowing us to spill the beans which looks something like this: 

  • Based on the information provided by a “solid source”, The EOS R1 is going to break records with its high-speed 30MP stacked dual-gain sensor with a 1/1,250 flash sync speed, which undoubtedly raised a couple of eyebrows when we first heard it.
  • But that’s not all, apparently, the camera is also expected to roll out with robust hardware that has brawns high enough to handle 120FPS continuous shooting. 
  • And let’s not forget that There is also mention of 6.7K and 4.2K video capabilities suited for both cinema and run-and-gun workflows, the commercial shots with this thing are going to be wild.

Members of our team were quick to weigh in on what these specs could mean for their craft. Maria, who is a professional wildlife photographer expressed her excitement, saying “The readout is faster than I would ever need for my wildlife photography and 1/1250th of a second flash sync speed should be a welcome addition.”

It even gained some traction on Twitter too, which in my opinion was hard to miss, apparently one tweet stated, that we are simply hopeful that his dream comes to fruition with the advent of EOS R1 since the autofocus and tracking upgrades would give him an edge. As per his words “The high-speed 30MP stacked dual-gain sensor looks enticing, looking really forward how it would translate its power in public events I often cover, if the performance and clarity are up to the mark, it might just be my next daily driver.”

Nevertheless, regardless of the news that often makes its way up the surface, there are always discrepancies around it, so While some gentleman argues over finer points around resolution and shutter type, most agreed the R1 appeared to advance Canon’s stance in the crucial areas of speed, video quality, and low-light performance, it always crucial that we wait till it drops for real-world.

As far as the release date is concerned, my fingers are tingling to feel its ergonomics because it has been quite a while since such flagship models have dropped that have ground-shattering capabilities, nevertheless, as per our trusted sources, it seems that the official date might just be around the corner, no later than February, until then, we will be digging in on this story and keep you updated news revolving around this story, stay tuned for more articles like these.
