If you want to know why Corning created the Gorilla Glass Victus 2, the new cover glass the company released today, you can thank (or blame) its big, fat phone.

Canon tipped to launch five cameras in 2023, but not the one everyone wants

Next year could be even bigger than the past twelve months for new Canon cameras, with new rumors predicting five new launches in 2023. But as exciting as these new releases are, there’s one notable absentee from the list – a full-size camera. frame cheap.

canon rumors‘ list of Canon cameras expected for next year contains three APS-C cameras and two full-frame models. On the more affordable end are the Canon EOS R50 (a budget model that will apparently sit below the Canon EOS R10) and another APS-C camera that will (somehow) fit between the latter and the Canon EOS R7. A video-focused Canon EOS R7 C could also be on the way, but that’s less certain.

Less comprehensive, however, are the anticipated full-frame offerings. Anyone hoping for a successor to the Canon EOS RP – a camera that arrived in 2019 with the slogan ‘full-frame for the mass’ – might be particularly disappointed. The two models on the Canon Rumors list are the Canon EOS R5 S (probably a high-megapixel beast) and the Canon EOS R5 Mark II, which will be one of the most anticipated cameras of the year.

However, this excitement will mostly be felt by well-heeled professionals or amateurs with big budgets. The current Canon EOS R5 arrived with a price tag of $3,899 / £4,199 / AU$6,899. And if the rumors about its successor are true – a new 61MP BSI sensor, 9.44M-dot EVF and 8K/60p video are all in the predicted specs – then the Mark II could be even more expensive than that.
