Canon EOS R5 first details revealed

Well, this is a real bombshell. After last days with rumours and unconfirmed leaks it seems that we can be sure what will the EOS R5 look like.

The awaited camera seems to be a mirrorless update to the 5D Mark IV.


Taking all the rumours and news under consideration, these are the expected specifications:

  • 45mp full-frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No-touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K @ 30fps RAW
  • 4K @ 120fps
  • 4K @ 60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV

Announcement ahead of CP+ next month. It seems like Canon will release the confirmation within the next few weeks, but the EOS R5 should be available in July 2020. Unfortunately, the price of the newest Canon baby is still a secret. Looking at the specs we are really looking forward to touch it!
