In February, Canon announced the EOS R5 camera — the next, and most formidable in its long line of dominant mirrorless offerings. Among other things, the implementation of 8K video capture caused the photographic/cinematic community to raise some questions about the platform’s validity; but, after an official announcement from the company, it turns out that the EOS R5 will, in fact, be Canon’s most advanced mirrorless platform to-date.
The Canon EOS R5 is slated to garner the title of Canon’s flagship mirrorless camera offering, thanks to cutting-edge 8K shooting capabilities and genre-leading autofocus. But if the ability to shoot 8K video isn’t enough to win you over, you’ll need to take into account that this is all being done without pixel binning (and on the camera’s full-frame sensor), making it the highest-resolution mirrorless offering in the industry, should the company deliver on its promise. Better yet, users will be able to capture this crisp, ultra-defined video while using Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which features responsive eye-tracking capabilities for both human and animal subjects, pairing with in-body image stabilization to provide exceptional sharpness and depth of field, regardless of the situation.
