Canon EOS R5: We Did Not Expect This!
Canon EOS R5 may be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we’re still curious of its specs – and we bet you’re curious too. We have told you already about its first details. Now Canon has released another round of specs, revealing several compelling reasons why this camera is set to be the most revolutionary Canon product since the debut of the 5D Mark II. Once again it seems like the EOS R5 will be a true revolution in the market.
Why are we so impressed? Its video shooting capacity is stunning. For us, dental photographers, the EOS R5 can be a new approach, with its possibility to take great photos and unbelievable videos at the same time.
- Dual Pixel CMOS AF available in all 8K and 4K recording modes and Internal 4K/120p video recording give a clear message to the competition: it’s time to get to work. Nikon, you seem to be a bit late now.
- We knew that the EOS R5 will shoot in 8K, but giving it RAW quality is a great surprise
- 4K AND 8K with a full capacity of Dual Pixel CMOS AF and 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilization: this means that any short film will be in great quality, even without a tripod!
- No-crop 8K and 4K video recording using the full-width of the sensor: registering without compromises
