Canon announces further details about the EOS R5, the mirrorless full format camera, which is still in development but has already attracted attention with its promising video specifications. For example, 8K/30p will be recorded internally and the entire sensor width will be read out. For this purpose the Dual Pixel CMOS AF is to be supported "in all 8K modes". However, there is no further information about the 4K modes yet, not even to what extent 10 bit, log or even RAW options are planned for the camera.
On the other hand, it has been known since mid-February that the EOS R5 will be equipped with a movable sensor that can also work in combination with a stabilized lens. It will offer two card slots and will be able to handle up to 20 fps in single frame mode with electronic shutter.
Canon animal photographers can also look forward to a more advanced autofocus, which, thanks to a "holistic approach", will be able to recognise other typical characteristics of pets, not just eyes.
How much the R5 should cost and when it should be released is still open.
