Announcing the Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Camera
On February 13th, 2020, Canon announced that they’re developing the EOS R5, their latest in full frame mirrorless cameras. Plus, they also announced their plans to release 9 RF lenses, which are already in development. These lenses include the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x, and the Extender RF 2x. With this camera, and their new lenses, Canon’s overall plan is to strengthen their ESO R System. Currently, the Canon R5 is scheduled to release in early April 2020.
Canon’s development of their EOS R5 and RF lenses
The R5 currently being developed is being designed to take full advantage of the EOS R Systems technology, this includes high-speed continuous shooting, 8K video recording, and much more. Plus, it will contribute a more efficient workflow with improved functionality, operations, transmissions, and most important of all, reliability. With all their planned enhancements and technology, Canon is planning to take the concept of “Speed, Comfort, and High-image-quality” and raise it to new heights.
The Canon EOS R5 is the first of their next-gen mirrorless cameras designed with the company’s EOS R System. The R5 will include a newly developed CMOS sensor to allow features like high-speed continuous shooting. If equipped with an electronic shutter, it can shoot approximately 20 FPS (frames per second), while a mechanical shutter allows around 12 FPS. This makes the camera an excellent choice when capturing shots of athletes at a sporting event, running animals, and other fast-moving targets. Plus, the camera has outstanding video features as well. It can capture 8K video with ease, create high-resolution photos from video footage, and process 8K video into higher-quality 4K video. This greatly expands the video possibilities of the R5. The EOS R5 will also be Canon’s first camera with a high-performance coordinated image stabilization (IS) system, integrating the built-in IS with the IS systems on any RF lens you attach. This camera also has dual media card slots, and supports automatic image transfers from the device to the cloud platform image.canon.
