The EOS R5 builds off of the powerful legacy of Canon’s full frame cameras offering next generation refinements in image quality, performance and reliability. It’s an ideal choice for a large range of photographic and cinematographic environments from weddings, portraits, sports, journalism, landscape, cinematography and more.
Canon’s all-new 45 Megapixel full-frame sensor is at the heart of the EOS R5’s superb image quality, which also leads the way for impressive 8K DCI cinematic movie capture with the ability to extract 35.4 Megapixel still images. Focus and speed are paramount in the EOS R5, providing impressive continuous capture at speeds of up to 20 frames-per-second and with Dual Pixel CMOS AF II capability, to track split second movements of even the most elusive of subjects. With 1,053 Automatic AF zones, it is easier than ever to photograph people with the use of Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or intuitively track the whole body, face or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection*2 AF. The 5-axis in-body image stabilization can effectively compensate for camera shake with approximately 8 stops of stabilization* with use of certain non-stabilized, and optically image stabilized lenses. Connectivity like 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®, is also included.
High Image Quality featuring a New 45 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
The EOS R5 camera features an entirely new Canon-developed CMOS sensor with approx. 45 effective megapixels. It employs the DIGIC X Image Processor to enhance the speed of operations across the board. This means fast, efficient performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints, impressive 4K video and more.
DIGIC X Image Processor
The EOS R5 camera is the first Canon EOS camera – in the Mirrorless series camera line - to feature a powerful DIGIC X Image Processor, which helps to enhance fine detail in your image.
ISO range of 100-51200; Expandable to 102400*1
Delivering high standard and expanded ISOs (for still images), and a score of options to help enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations, the EOS R5 camera can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 102400 (H).
Up to 12 fps with Mechanical Shutter
Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 12 fps, the EOS R5 camera can capture the split-second details between a subject’s movements. This is ideal for dynamic action photos such as athletes, animals or vehicles in motion.
Up to 20 fps Electronic (Silent) Shutter
Especially helpful for wildlife photography, journalism and situations where photographers need to remain discrete, the EOS R5 camera features a selectable electronic (silent) shutter mode, and can capture images at up to 20 fps. With a fast AF/AE system, DIGIC X image Processor and high-speed recording with new Dual CFexpress card slots, the EOS R5 helps ensure that camera operations are performed quickly and precisely.
High-speed Focusing with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
The EOS R5 camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features an incredible 1,053 Automatic AF zones that can be designated as auto-focus focal points (when Face + Tracking priority AF is selected). This ensures higher-precision Eye Detection AF, or allows for you to focus on the desired AF point. Fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease.
AF Area Coverage of Approx. 100% x 100%^2
The EOS R5 camera features an expansive focus area of approx. 100% horizontal and 100% vertical^2 when working with select RF and EF lenses. With older EF lenses, or with Extender types I and II, the EOS R5 focuses on approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically of the image. This means fast and impressive focusing even when composing your subject far from the center of the frame.
EV -6^3 Low-light Autofocus
Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light settings, the EOS R5 camera’s brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -6^3 where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works together with the EOS R5’s EVF to clearly capture subjects even when light is limited. Combined with the EOS R5 camera’s remarkable low-light AF performance, still and video shooting is possible even in dark situations in a variety of places and occasions.
Head and Eye Detection
The EOS R5 camera brings head and eye detection to a new level. Even in situations where a camera may struggle to detect a subject, the EOS R5 camera can locate and a person’s head or eye when people detection is set, allowing ease and accuracy when capturing videos or still images, or while in Live View mode.
For the first time in a Canon Mirrorless camera, animal detection is now possible. Developed using deep learning technology, the EOS R5 camera can effectively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, or birds for speed and precision – regardless of the animal’s size, posture, or orientation of the face.
8K RAW, 4K up to 120fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 with Canon Log or HDR PQ, Internal Recording in all Formats, with Auto Focus
With the high-speed processing capability of the DIGIC X image processor, the EOS R5 is able to record 8K movies (uncropped, at up to 29.97 fps) – a first for Canon full-frame mirrorless cameras. 4K video shooting is also possible at up to 119.9fps, in 4:2:2 10-bit (H.265) Canon Log, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF is available in all 8K and 4K modes. Image-makers worldwide will be able to tell their stories in larger-than-life resolutions. Additional new features include: Internally recorded and uncropped 8K RAW Recording up to 29.97 fps with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, and HDR-PQ Recording (H.265) capability.
In-body Image Stabilizer can provide up to 8 stops of Shake Correction*
The EOS R5 is Canon’s first camera to incorporate 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization). This camera will not only enhance the ability to shoot still images at slower shutter speeds but it will also help reduce camera shake when shooting movies. Additionally, the EOS R5’s IBIS will work in combination with Optical Image Stabilization found in many Canon RF and EF lenses.
Dual Card Slots for CFexpress** and UHS-II SD Memory Cards*** Memory Cards
Whether you are shooting photos every day, or are recording 8K videos, the EOS R5 camera can capture an incredible amount of images through its super high-speed CFexpress dual card slots. Plus a UHS-II SD*** card slot is also provided at your disposal.
0.5-type OLED EVF with Approx. 5.76 Million Dots
The EOS R5 camera features a high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 5.76 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera. The EOS R5’s EVF supports a 120 fps refresh rate^1 and has been created to provide a bright, sharp and colorful 100% view of the subject at hand, displaying a crisp and vivid image with minimal aberration or distortion.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
The EOS R5 camera features a 3.15-inch, 2.1 Megapixel Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD. Its extensive flexibility makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle, making selfies simple and enabling the LCD to fold away when not in use. The brightness of the EVF and the LCD monitor can even be adjusted individually. Touchscreen features include settings, review and even AF point selection.
