The rumor mill around a "CineVersion" of the current Canon EOS R5 is once again bubbling vigorously. Rumors about an actively cooled version of the EOS R, which would then complete Canon&s current full-frame DSLM lineup as the "Cinema" EOS R5C, keep surfacing. Accordingly, continuous 8K 30p recording would then be possible and - if you trust the tech augurs - for the first time also in XF-AVC - which is Canon&s 10-bit "workhorse" codec (MXF container) for professional video and TV productions.
Also of interest for professional (team) productions should be Timecode In/Out as well as the XLR adapter connections via hot shoe, which until now has only been available on the Canon Eos R3 (here our www.slashcam.de/artikel/Test/Canon-EOS-R3-im-Praxistest--12-Bit-6K-RAW-50p--Hauttoene--LOG-LUT--Stabilisierung--DJI-RS2-uvm--.html field test of the Canon EOS R3).
Canon Log 3 and Log 2 as well as Cinema Raw Light and MP4 recording along with a full-size HDMI output would round out the Canon EOS R5C.
That&s about it for the current rumor mill on the Canon EOS R5C.
High on our wish list for an upcoming EOS R5C would be a fullsensor readout for 4K 60p - active cooling could put that option within realistic reach.
