The awaited Canon EOS R5 arrives with specifications to cater for the professional image-maker's needs for resolution, speed, and video capabilities. This mirrorless camera body boasts a newly developed 45MP full-frame CMOS Sensor that offers impressively high-resolution DCI 8K 30 fps raw video recording internally and 4K recording up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit with Canon Log. The EOS R5 also offers HDR recording, either via in-camera HDR production or through external recording via the HDMI port, which supports a clean 4K output up to 60 fps. The capacity of the 45MP sensor to achieve high resolution stills and video output is complemented by a fine-tuned DIGIC X image processor with speed: a wide sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200 can be further expanded to ISO 102400 to suit working in varied lighting conditions; quick continuous shooting up to 12fps with a mechanical shutteror silent 20 fps with an electronic shuttercaters for working with moving subjects.
The pairing of the new sensor and refined image processor affords the new generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, which features 1053 selectable focusing points that cover about 100% of the image for wide and even coverage. Offering smooth and fast focusing when working with still imagery, critical focus can be attained even when shooting and tracking of moving subjects. A Movie Servo AF mode offers similar apt capability for shooting videos, where focus is smooth and natural when transiting between subjects or distances within the scene. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system's ability to recognise subjects and maintain focus when working within cluttered or changing scenery heightens the EOS R5's subject tracking in movie. Moreover, through the use of Deep Learning Technology, the intelligent focusing system gradually refines its ability to quickly and accurately recognise both people and animal subjects. This technology also supports eye, face, and head detection functions for both people and animals to suit portraiture photography. The ability to for users to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority, as well as intuitive rack focus adjustments via the Touch AF system, contribute to user control and efficiency during recording. Another first for this EOS model, the EOS R5 incorporates a five-axis sensor shift image stabilisation that impressively compensates up to eight stops of camera shake to effectively support handheld shooting with shutter speeds. This stabilisation system collaborates with the lens-based optical image stabilisation for both native RF-mount lenses and adapted EF-mount lenses (via the separately available EF-EOS R Mount Adapter).
Beyond the performance attributes, this camera design features a generously high-resolution 5.67m-dot 0.5" OLED electronic viewfinder for markedly clear and bright eye-level viewing that is coupled by a fast 120 fps refresh rate to offer a more realistic viewfinder experience. A rear 3.2" 2.1m-dot LCD touchscreen is also featured and has a vari-angle design that benefits working with front facing recording, such as when vlogging, as well as from high and low angles. A top status LCDbenefits a smooth workflow as it can be employed for quick review of camera and shooting setting while four control dials and a joystick provide for intuitive tactile control amd fast and intuitive focus point selection and menu navigation. The durable weather-sealed body is built for working in the toughest environments. Built-in 5 GHz and 2.4GHZ Wi-Fi bands, along with Bluetooth, offer fast file transferring and remote camera control via the Canon Camera Connect App, which also supports geotagging your files by using the connected mobile device's location data. Integrated dual memory card slots pave the way for flexible storage on CPexpress Type B and SD UHS-II memory cards with faster read and write speeds to better support the high-resolution recording and fast continuous shooting. The battery, charger, camera cover, battery pack cover, neckstrap, cable protector and interface cable are supplied with the EOS R5.
