Canon’s recent release of the mid-range EOS R7 and EOS R10 was great news for those of us who can’t afford to invest in full-frame flagships – and it looks like the camera giant could follow suit. with another temptingly affordable model.

the reliable Canon Rumors (opens in new tab) stated that “Canon’s next RF mount camera is in the field” and will be announced “before November 2022”. Like Canon’s two most recent releases, the camera will apparently be another APS-C model and “will be a small form factor vlogger camera” that will likely compete with the new Nikon Z30. That means it could also be the Canon EOS R100.

Cameras with APS-C sensors are generally much more affordable than their full-frame counterparts. So the launch of a third RF-mount camera – following the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 – would confirm a major shift in Canon’s strategy. And also very welcome in today’s difficult financial climate.

Even if you’re not in the market for a vlog camera, the arrival of another APS-C model would bode well for affordable Canon cameras. As our review of the Canon EOS R7 explains, one of the few issues with the camera is the lack of native lenses. There are currently only two RF-S lenses, an 18-150mm and an 18-45mm.
