For the professional image-maker who needs resolution, speed, and video
capabilities, there is the Canon EOS R5. Setting a new standard for
versatility, this full-frame mirrorless camera features a newly
developed 45MP CMOS sensor, which offers 8K raw video recording, 12 fps
continuous shooting with a mechanical shutter, and is the first EOS
camera to feature 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation.
Beyond just resolution, the sensor also pairs with the refined DIGIC X
image processor to usher in a new generation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF for
quick, smooth, and intelligent focusing performance using 1053
selectable points that cover the entire field of view. This focusing
system has also been updated to make use of Deep Learning technology for
improved subject tracking as well as precise eye, face, and
head-detection for both people and animals.
Complementing the imaging assets, the R5, while sporting a new design,
also feels familiar to EOS 5-series users. An especially high-resolution
0.5" 5.76m-dot electronic viewfinder provides a realistic 120 fps
refresh rate while the 3.2" rear touchscreen LCD monitor sports a
vari-angle design to accommodate vlogging needs as well as benefit
working from high and low angles. A top status makes for an intuitive
workflow and the camera also incorporates dual memory card slots—one
CFexpress Type B, one SD UHS-II—along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless
45MP Full-Frame Sensor and DIGIC X Processor
Built around a newly developed 45MP full-frame CMOS sensor, the EOS R5
offers both high-resolution stills and video output and the fine-tuned
DIGIC X image processor complements this with a wealth of speed.
Sensitivity from ISO 100-51200, which can be expanded to ISO 102400,
suits working in a variety of lighting conditions while quick continuous
shooting up to 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, or silent 20 fps with
an electronic shutter, is ideal for working with moving subjects.
8K30 Raw and 4K120 Video Recording
Benefitting more than just stills, the 45MP full-frame sensor also
enables impressively high-resolution DCI 8K 30 fps raw video recording
internally along with 4K recording up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit with
Canon Log. HDR-PQ recording is possible, too, in-camera HDR production
and external recording, via the HDMI port supports a clean 4K output at
up to 60 fps. Both All-I and IPB compression options are available,
along with the ability to use Dual Pixel CMOS AF when shooting at up to
Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
An updated Dual Pixel CMOS AF II features 1053 selectable focusing
points, which cover approximately 100% of the image frame for wide and
even coverage. This focusing system offers smooth and fast focusing
performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This
system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide
a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a
majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more
direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this
focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it
ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical
focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF
mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different
subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability
to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority.
Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by
touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change
focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also
heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognise
subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered
Subject tracking has also been benefitted through the use of Deep
Learning technology, which helps to gradually refine the focusing
system's ability to quickly and accurately recognise both people and
animal subjects. This technology also supports the more refined eye,
face, and head detection functions, for both people and animals, that
are well-suited for portraiture applications.
Sensor-Shift Image Stabiliser
A first for EOS cameras, the R5 incorporates five-axis sensor-shift
image stabilisation that compensates for up to an impressive eight stops
of camera shake for truly effective compensation of camera shake to suit
handheld shooting with slower shutter speeds. This stabilisation system
also works in concert with lens-based optical image stabilisation for
both native RF lenses and adapted EF lenses.
Body Design and Wireless Connectivity
- High-resolution 5.67m-dot 0.5" electronic viewfinder provides a bright
and detailed means for eye-level viewing and the quick 120 fps refresh
rate offers natural motion rendering for a more realistic viewfinder
- Rear 3.2" 2.1m-dot LCD touchscreen features a vari-angle design that
benefits front-facing recording, such as for vlogging needs, as well as
working from high and low shooting angles.
- Top status LCD can be used to quickly review camera and shooting
- CFexpress Type B and SD UHS-II memory card slots are featured for
flexible storage needs; the CFexpress slot is ideal for 8K video and
high-speed, high-resolution burst shooting needs while the SD card slot
retains a familiar form factor for wide compatibility.
- Both a 3.5mm headphone and a 3.5mm external microphone port are
featured for improved audio monitoring and recording capabilities.
- Refined body design incorporates four distinct control dials across
the body for intuitive tactile control and a joystick controller is used
on the back of the camera for fast and intuitive focus point selection
and menu navigation.
- Durable, weather-sealed body design is built to handle tough working
conditions and inclement weather.
- Both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi bands are available for fast file
transferring to a mobile device and Bluetooth is also available to
provide constant device connection via the Canon Camera Connect app.
