Dave Etchells of Imaging Resources has conducted an interesting interview with Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi of Canon - one of the leading product developers in the field of Canon Imaging. In this interview Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi reveals that an 8K video-enabled EOS R is within the EOS R roadmap. The original quote is:
"For example, an 8K video capable camera is already in our EOS R-series roadmap."
Of course, Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi does not reveal when a corresponding EOS R will be presented. So it could be 2019 or 2025. Those who had doubts about the direction the new generation of mirrorless full-frame cameras will take can at least be sure from now on: 8K video is coming - and we expect it sooner rather than later.
So maybe 2019 will not only be the year of RAW for everyone but also of 8K for everyone.
