Just recently, the Canon R7 was introduced with a moveable S35/APS-C sensor and 4K recording at 4:2:2 10-bit, optionally in C-Log 3. Coupled with DualPixel AF and a relatively small price tag of 1,500 euros, it thus meets with some interest in the filmmaking community, but is not yet available at all.

It&s not yet clear to what extent filmmakers will have to contend with heat problems again with this camera (as they did with the R5/R6 back in the day) - Canon itself, for example, states a recording time of approx. 60 min. at +23 °C output temperature for 4K 30p HQ. Since the sensor resolves at 32.5MP, the 4K material is recorded via downsampling, which definitely requires computing power.
As CanonRumors now writes, a cine-optimized version of the camera is to follow next year, just as the R5 was joined by the R5 C. The Canon EOS R7 C is rumored to shoot up to 7K60P in Cinema RAW Light and offer the same codec options as the EOS R5 C.
Thanks to active cooling, heat limits are no longer an issue with the R5 C, but in return, the IBIS was omitted due to design reasons, as according to Canon, the two could not be combined. We took a look at the camera&s other optimizations for video at in the Canon R5 C field test.
Speaking of Canon and the S35: The Canon EOS C200 was released in 2017 and has thus been on the market for a good five years. A successor wouldn&t seem rushed, and according to the rumor mill, one is also being planned - but not until next year.

The Cinema EOS C200 Mark II is supposed to have according to first information the sensor and the connections of the C300 Mark III and also offer the same framerates and resolutions. Which in turn also smells a bit like a C300 Mark IV, if the distance between the product lines is to be maintained; in fact, according to CanonRumors, several Cinema EOS cameras are to appear next year.
Apparently the lens mount of the presumed C200 Mark II is very easily switchable between EF and RF. According to this, a detachable EF mount is supposed to sit on top of the native RF mount. Whether this will actually be a real mount, or rather an adapter (like the one supplied with the Canon R7), remains to be seen. It&s still quite a while until 2023 anyway.
