Canon EOS R1 launch has been torpedoed by prototype problems (report)

The Canon EOS R1, the eagerly-awaited and conspicuously MIA flagship camera from Canon, has reportedly been delayed “due to an issue with test units”.

It’s the latest in a long series of stops and starts for the EOS R1, which was widely anticipated to be announced in January at CP+ 2024 – ahead of an expected launch, as is the tradition for flagship professional cameras, in time for the Olympic Games.
