The Canon EOS R5 will be Canon’s next flagship camera in the EOS R ecosystem. To confirm the features of this incredible mirrorless camera that can shoot 8K videos, Canon just made an announcement to give users a little bit more details about its capabilities. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Canon EOS R5 – Canon’s Next Flagship Mirrorless Camera
The Canon EOS R5 has been announced in February 2020. Since then, there has been a lot of noise around this camera all over the Internet. Indeed, on paper, the Canon EOS R5 features incredible photo and video capabilities, including:
- A new CMOS sensor.
- It can shoot 8K video, and it can down-sample 8K videos to 4K for improved image quality.
- Dual-card slot.
- It is the first-ever Canon camera to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS).
- The possibility to shoot stills at up to 20 frames per second using an electronic shutter. Using the mechanical shutter, you can go at up to 12 FPS.
- Support automatic transfer of image files from the R5 to the image.canon cloud platform.
The EOS R5 will surpass most of the stills cameras they ever created. These kinds of high-end video specs in a DSLR/mirrorless camera are usually unexpected from Canon. But recently, it seems like Canon is unleashing the beast with the release of the Canon EOS-1DX Mark III, and now the EOS R5.
The EOS R5 was first shown during WPPI 2020 in Las Vegas at the end of February, but Canon just released an update to confirm some of the details about the video capabilities of the R5.
Canon EOS R5 – Canon Confirms Some Details
Canon confirms that the Canon EOS R5 will be able to capture 8K video internally at up to 29.97 frames per second. Also, there will be no crop, and the EOS R5 will use the full width of the newly developed CMOS sensor when shoot video.
You will have access to Dual Pixel AF in every 8K shooting mode, and even get access to Animal Detection. Finally, Canon confirms that you can combine the in-body image stabilization (IBIS) with the Image Stabilization (IS) from Canon lenses, to get super stable results.
And that’s it; there is still no other words from Canon about the price nor availability of the Canon EOS R5. Otherwise, with the Coronavirus pandemic at the moment, Canon – like every other manufacturer out there – might issue some production delays on their latest flagship mirrorless camera. As always, we’ll keep you updated as soon as we have other information regarding the EOS R5.
