Canon has announced the development of the R5 - a flagship RF-mount mirrorless camera with built-in image stabilization. Capable of 8K video and 20fps stills shooting. Beyond that, details are scant, but the new camera is expected to be released at some point this year.
Key specifications (so far):
Newly designed CMOS sensor (likely 40MP) In-camera image stabilization 20fps continuous shooting (silent shutter). 12ps continuous shooting (mechanical shutter) 8K video capture. Twin card slots.
To natively sample 8K video (usually defined as 7680 x 4320 pixels) would require a 7680 x 5120 pixel sensor. This being the case, if the 8K isn't cropped, we can make a pretty good guess that effective resolution of the R5 will be ~ 40MP. Beyond these very limited headline specs, all we know about the R5 is what we can glean from the limited views of the camera released by Canon. Ergonomically, the R5 appears to be a clear evolution of the original EOS R, with more DSLR - like ergonomics (and no M-Fn bar!). But we'll bring you more information when we have it.
Alongside the R5, Canon is also teasing '9 RF lenses' coming later this year. Including a new telezoom - the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM.
Reference exhibits for the EOS R5 and RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM. Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x will be on display in the Canon booth at the CP+ Camera and Photo Imaging Show 2020. To be held from February 27 to March 1 at the Pacific Yokohama convention hall in Yokohama, Japan.
A preview of the EOS R5 will be on display at the 2020 WPPI Show. (February 25-27) in Las Vegas.
