What according to you are the next upcoming cameras from Canon for 2017? We expect Canon have more than dozen of cameras to be announced in 2017 including the long awaited Canon 6D Mark II and followed by different cameras. As we saw, the big Canon announcements were the releasing Canon 1DX Mark II and 5D Mark IV in which Canon put a huge efforts to show their latest and impeccable technology into the practical world. Presently, Canon’s both cameras are just the master class in the world of photography that surprises us by delivering fast and stunning results.
The age of 2016 is going to be over and now we are heading towards very new 2017, so Canon also must want to welcome this New Year with brand new cameras. Probably, Canon have bunch of cameras in their pipeline for 2017, unfortunately they didn’t reveal it but we know the roadmap of Canon for 2017 and we want you should also know the name of the upcoming canon cameras.
Here is the List of Canon Upcoming Cameras and Lenses 2017
Canon Upcoming DSLRs Cameras
Just in the beginning of 2017, CES and CP+ are the two big photography events to be held consecutively in January and February. CES in January and CP+ in February, but this long awaited and the successor for current Canon 750D/760D—Canon 800D is highly expected to be announced at CES means in January. According to the current rumors circulating around this Canon 800D may be announced with a new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens. So far, if we talking about its specifications then Canon 800D may hire the AF system from its own family member Canon 80D (45-Point All Cross-Type AF System), but again Canon won’t do this and if they do then the selling rate of 80D will be slowed down. Instead of using Canon 80D’s AF system, Canon must use Canon 70D AF system, which is dual pixel CMOS sensor (19-Point All Cross-Type Phase-Detect AF). One thing Canon would probably bring in Canon 800D is that unlike the Hybrid CMOS AF III in Canon 750D/760D—the Canon 800D may have Hybrid CMOS AF IV.
Note– Earlier, Canon released split out version—Canon 750D/T6i and Canon 760D/T6S. Now according to the rumor mills this time also Canon may come with two versions (Canon T7S and T7i) and if Canon do this then the price of Canon T7S may cost you marginally higher than T7i, which means T7i will remain under the consumer range and we expect there will be a price difference of around hundred dollars.
Canon 6D Mark II
There must be huge number of photographers who have been holding their purchase to spare on this long awaited Canon 6D Mark II. Rumors have been circulating over web for long time and once it was also expected that the camera would be announced just after Canon 5D Mark IV, but Canon made their users to wait for more extra months and finally we got to know that it may be announced in the early Q4 or spring of 2017. Rumors say that the 6D Mark II may come with EF 200-600mm Lens.
So Far the rumored specifications of Canon 6D Mark II are…
- 24mp Full Frame CMOS
- 1.5 stops better than Canon 6D at higher ISO
- Low-light autofocus (centre point) at -5 EV
- Built-in Wi-Fi
- Built-in GPS
- Built-in NFC
- Dual-pixel autofocus technology
- Touchscreen, LCD size same as current 6D
- New connectivity feature on 6D Mark II
Canon Powershot Rumor
Canon SX70 HS
When we were in the end of 2015, we mentioned Canon PowerShot SX70 HS as the upcoming camera of 2016. Now 2016 is almost over and somewhere it was speculated that we could see this camera’s announcement at Photokina show in September, 2016, but Canon didn’t introduce it. Latest rumor suggests that CES is the perfect platform Canon may choose to announce this long awaited Poweshot camera. By the way, Canon SX60 HS the current 65X Optical zoom camera was announced back in September 2014, means almost two years is about to over, but there is no appropriate news or rumors about its successor. Excitingly, rumor suggests CES in January, 2017 is perhaps the expected place for this SX70HS announcement.
Canon G9 X Mark II
At present, we don’t have enough information about this upcoming Canon G9 X Mark II. No one has accurate information about this camera…however, it is expected that Canon may introduce this camera at any points of 2017. It will be the successor of current Canon G9X.
Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark III
Of course, this will be Cinema camera and the successor of current Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark II. It is rumored that Canon won’t announce it at CES and CP+ as well, but may choose NAB in April, 2017.
Canon EOS M– No hints, no rumor about this Canon EOS M, but may take this camera also seriously to announce anytime at 2017.
It was everything about the cameras and now we are heading towards the expected lenses for 2017…

As we have already told you that Canon could release these Canon EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM II along with Canon 800D/T7i or T7S in between Feb/March2017. Now the rumor is also expecting that this lens may come alongside the new Rebel cameras ahead of CES, 2017. Plus, it is also rumor that there will be another “interesting lens” Canon is going to announce alongside the rebel cameras, but sadly if it would be in January or any other point of the Year.
