Canon Inc. has announced the development of the EOS R5, a professional full-frame mirrorless flagship camera offering photographers and filmmakers a host of ground-breaking new features.
This new addition to the Canon EOS-R cameras can record up to 30p internally in 8K with the full sensor width and should redefine mirrorless cameras with its market-leading functions. Additionally, it can shoot up to 20 frames per second with an electronic shutter and 12 photos per second with a mechanical shutter.
It also supports Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF in all 8K modes. New details concern the autofocus system for the recognition of animals: dogs, cats, and birds. The system relies on the identification of the eyes, but also on that of the muzzle and the body in situations where the eyes are not visible.
The EOS R5 takes Canon’s innovative image stabilization technology to the next level with the brand new built-in image stabilization system developed by Canon that works in conjunction with the lens stabilization system. Since the distribution of content is just as important as the taking of photos and videos, the EOS R5 supports the automatic transfer of image files from the device to the cloud platform.
The highly anticipated EOS R5 also has two practical memory card slots. Although there is still no precise information about the sensor resolution, as already mentioned, given the 8K capabilities of the machine, this must be at least 33 MP. The first rumors in January also indicated a 45 MP full-frame.
More details are expected to be revealed during its launch.
