- A single SD card slot.
- Mic-in, headphone-out.

In particular, the camera is going to be focused on premium video cameras like in the recent past. Thus marketed towards YouTubers and Vloggers, who wants a highly capable camera in a compact size. Therefore we may expect some advanced live tracking and autofocus capabilities. It is going to be announced along side a new range of lenses.
Lastly, with the rumoured price tag of around $2,100, it doesn’t quite fit into the entry-level category. The C in the name stands for ‘compact’, it may even stand for ‘concept’ now that we have seen the teaser. Nonetheless, we will find out all about it on September 15.
