This time, we have been introduced to the filming capabilities which we'll detail below, but it certainly looks like Canon are packing this new mirrorless system with an almighty punch.

High-Speed Mirrorless Photography

Canon promises high performance from the EOS R5. Particularly with high-speed continuous shooting. We’ve been told the R5 will shoot at a lively 12 fps on the mechanical shutter. The electronic shutter takes frame rates one step further by capturing at 20 fps. 

The rapid performance is paired with the EOS R range’s renowned image quality. This should offer the ideal package for wedding and wildlife photographers and beyond.


Superior stabilisation

The R5 is set to lead the way in image stabilisation. An all-new in-body stabilisation system will work harmoniously with the lens stabilisation system. This is set to produce sharp stills and smooth 8K video.


Futureproof video

Canon aims to futureproof the R5 by offering users Cinematic Quality 8K video capture. The R5 will offer 4x the resolution of current industry-standard 4K video. It does this by allowing you to shoot 8K wide, cropping to 4K when required.


Connected workflow

The R5 is set to support your workflow as a photographer. Automated image transfer will be possible directly from the camera to the Canon Cloud platform. This means you can almost instantaneously view and share your work on other devices. There will be dual card slots as well for peace of mind.
