The biggest technological leap for Canon
A lot of people are excited about Canon’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera. We already know that it can shoot crop-free 8K video (with Dual Pixel AF no less), comes with in-body image stabilization, and can shoot up to 20FPS with its electronic shutter.
While it remains unclear when the EOS R5 will officially launch, Canon confirmed several features in its latest press release. This time, Canon gave a full rundown of the EOS R5’s video capabilities, which include the following:
- 8K RAW internal video recording up to 29.97 fps
- 8K internal video recording up to 29.97 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265).
- 4K internal video recording up to 119.88 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265).
- 4K external recording is also available up to 59.94 fps.
- Canon Log available in 8K and 4K internal recording modes.
Those video capabilities alone make the EOS R5 very interesting, especially since it has almost the same size as the EOS R. Aside from the video capabilities, Canon also revealed that it will have 5-axis in-body image stabilization that will work together with optical image stabilization on select EF and RF lens, along with CFExpress and UHS-II SD card slots.
