Image.Canon indication as to what is coming for cameras?

The R5 is supposed to beam photos up to Canons cloud.  Do you think we could see cameras with no memory cards in the future, and instead sending photos to a cloud instantly?

No chance.

One must access the cloud from… within the camera
body? From anywhere?

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Let's do the math:

Nah, I won't bother. The time it would take to transmit RAW files would be onerous, and if you want JPG, there's already a solution for that with your phone.

I think Canon is trying to solve a problem that doesn't really exist, or at least affect many people. Just whiners that can't buy more memory cards.

Yes and no. 

When I saw this, I visualized 3-5 years down the line when we might be on 7G - 9G cell service.  Then having this sort of tech will zap photos as they are taken to this cloud with out the need for memory cards.
