The report says that the Canon’s next cropped-sensor camera “will be the tiniest EOS R system camera” which may target “both sports shooters and videographers.” This necessarily means the APS-C camera will feature high continuous shooting speed and Dual Pixel AF II. the other specs and features of the APS-C RF mount camera aren’t known.
While Canon’s APS-C camera will reportedly be small in nature, we assume it won’t be smaller than the Canon EOS RP camera body which costs Rs 85,995 in India. The EOS RP features a 26.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. There will be more details on the APS-C camera as we draw closer to 2021. Possibly, the imaging brand will officially drop hint at the launch of the cropped-sensor camera very soon.

For now, the company has released the Canon EOS M50 Mark II camera in India. The new EOS M50 Mark II mirrorless camera may be a component of the EOS M line of cameras. Clearly, Canon wants to remain the EOS M and EOS R camera series separately. For the EOS R line-up, we saw that the company launched Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 in July 2020. While the EOS R5 mirrorless camera features a 45-megapixel CMOS sensor and thus the Digic X processor, the EOS R6 comes with a 20.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and thus the Digic X processor.
