Right here is an attention-grabbing patent software showcasing what seems to be new design and performance of an built-in grip mirrorless digicam physique. Right now, there’s no approach to actually know if this design is in actual fact one Canon is transferring ahead with on a digicam physique equivalent to an EOS R1, or if it’s simply a part of the design course of.
The patent largely offers with a safe grip for each horizontal and vertical capturing.
This design is sort of distinctive in that there’s an open cavity within the physique that your fingers can grip via as you’ll be able to see within the patent illustration under.
That is undoubtedly some out-of-the-box considering in terms of digicam design, however I feel the open area throughout the digicam physique is plenty of misplaced actual property for electronics. In the event you’ve ever seen a digicam opened up, there’s not often sufficient area inside for a lot of something.
One of many purposes of the pass-through design is for lively cooling, which is one thing we’ll see sooner or later on the Canon EOS R5c, however I can’t see the EOS R5c having a totally built-in grip, because it has been described to me as “barely bigger than the EOS R5”, however this design would match as considerably bigger.
The patent additionally mentions contact bar performance, which wasn’t well-received on the unique Canon EOS R.
Might we see a few of this design within the EOS R1? Maybe, however it appears a bit too radical for my part.
