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

The reliable Canon Rumors (opens in new tab) has claimed that “Canon’s next RF-based camera is in the field” and will be announced “before November 2022”. Like Canon’s two latest releases, the camera will apparently be another APS-C model and “will be a small format vlogger camera” that will likely compete with the new Nikon Z30. That means it could also be the long-rumored Canon EOS R100.

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

Even if you’re not in the market for a vlogging camera, the arrival of another APS-C model would be a good sign for budget Canon cameras. As our Canon EOS R7 review explains, one of the few problems with the camera is the lack of native lenses. Right now, there are only two RF-S lenses, an 18-150mm and 18-45mm.
