Canon Announces EOS R5 with '8K' Video


  • Canon Announces EOS R5 with '8K' Video

    From DPReview:




    Canon has announced the development of the R5 - a flagship RF-mount mirrorless camera with built-in image stabilization, capable of 8K video and 20fps stills shooting. Beyond that, details are scant, but the new camera is expected to be released at some point this year.

    Key specifications (so far):

    • Newly designed CMOS sensor (likely 40MP)
    • In-camera image stabilization
    • 20fps continuous shooting (silent shutter)
    • 12ps continuous shooting (mechanical shutter)
    • 8K video capture
    • Twin card slots

    There is a presser attached to the article, which is currently scant on details right now. However, what we do know is that the camera has in-body image stabilization, a new CMOS sensor, 20fps continuous shooting in silent mode, 12fps continuous shooting with the mechanical shutter, and dual card slots. But the new show stopper is the claimed 8K video capabilities; DPReview has the belief right now that the 8K is actually a 2x oversampled 4K video. This also means that the sensor is likely in the 40+MP range in order to do 8K. No word on how Canon is managing the data rates and heat from 8K video capture.


    Otherwise, the body looks like an evolution of the current EOS R platform; the tilt-flip rear LCD screen is there, but Canon has dropped the divisive multi-function touchbar for a more tradtional AF joystick.


    Also being announced at the same time are 7 RF mount lenses, including a RF 100-500 F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, a RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM kit lens, and a pair of teleconverters. Samples of the R5, the 100-500mm, and two new RF Extenders (1.4X and 2X) are expected to be shown at the WPPI show in Las Vegas, and the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan, both scheduled to take place later this month, so I would expect more details to become available then.

There is a firmware update available, but If the drive fails in this manner there is no fix and the data is currently not recoverable....
