Canon EOS R1 Development Announced

In a relatively slim press release, Canon has confirmed that they are indeed developing an EOS R1 flagship camera, aimed for a 2024 release. It will have a new image processing system (DIGIC Accelerator) that Canon says will improve the camera’s autofocus and other functions. The new subject-tracking capabilities in particular sound very interesting, especially the ability of the camera to recognize important subjects with “Action Priority.”
