Canon Confirms the Upcoming EOS R5 Will Record 8K Video
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, March 16, 2020 @ 07:00 PM (EST)

After announcing in February that it was working on a new full-frame mirrorless camera called the EOS R5, Canon has published a press release providing some juicy new details. The big headline: The EOS R5 will offer 8K internal video recording at up to 30fps—using the full width of the sensor. The company also says Dual Pixel CMOS AF will be available for all 8K modes. The image sensor resolution isn’t disclosed, however.

According to the press release from Canon Australia, the EOS R5 will feature “advanced animal AF—recognising dogs, cats and birds, relying not only on the eyes of the animal but also the face and body for situations when the eyes are not visible.” (Sadly, no mention of sharks, seals or sailfish!)

The press release also lists the EOS R5 specifications previously confirmed by Canon:

  • The EOS R5 offers a step-change in performance with an incredible 12fps using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter offering 20fps
  • The EOS R5 takes Canon’s cutting-edge image stabilisation technology to the next level, by including a newly Canon-developed, in-camera image stabilisation system—which works in combination with the lens stabilisation system
  • With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R5 supports automatic transfer of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform
  • The highly anticipated EOS R5 will feature dual card slots
  • Upon launch, the Canon EOS R5 will also be supported by Canon Australia’s 5-year warranty when purchased from an authorised local dealer

As for the release date, “coming soon” is all we have to go on, and given the present global productivity downturn due to the coronavirus, it’s anybody’s guess when that could be.
