The EOS R5 also offers groundbreaking video performance, including cinema-quality 8K RAW recording internally at 30fps with dual pixel autofocus.

Beyond impressive resolution, the EOS R5 leverages advanced technologies to expand creative possibilities.

Canon EOS R5 Features In Detail

High-Resolution Sensor Captures Fine Details

The 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor inside the EOS R5 delivers images with a spectacular level of resolution and clarity. It rivals medium format cameras for intricate detail perfect for landscape, architecture, still life, and other photography that benefits from capturing the finest textures. The exceptional dynamic range also retains nuances in highlights and shadows. Whether printing massive gallery wraps or cropping aggressively, the R5 provides ample resolution.

Shoots at 20 Frames Per Second Continuously

A staggering 20 frames per second continuous shooting speed ensures you can freeze subjects in motion like peak action sports. The electronic shutter also enables completely silent operation free of shutter vibration. Coupled with advanced autofocus and auto-exposure tracking even erratic motions stay properly focused and exposed in sequences. Having a tool capable of such fast image capture opens creative possibilities to convey a feeling of speed and motion.

Cinematic 8K 30fps RAW Internal Video Recording

As the first camera ever to offer uncompressed 8K RAW recording internally, the EOS R5 provides unprecedented flexibility when editing video footage. 8K oversamples a huge pixel area allowing room to crop and stabilise footage in post-production while retaining 4K resolution. The results can mimic shooting with gimbals and dollies in the camera. Shooting in RAW universally retains optimal dynamic range compared to codecs. For filmmakers, the R5 provides cutting-edge tools to achieve cinema-grade productions straight out of the camera with stunning 8K resolution.

5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilisation Up to 8 Stops

By integrating a 5-axis image stabilisation unit directly in the camera body, the EOS R5 provides up to 8 stops of shake correction with compatible lenses. This allows hand-holding the camera at much slower shutter speeds and still obtaining sharp images. The stabilisation effect also provides a stabilised viewfinder image making it easier to frame shots and focus properly while avoiding shake. For both still photos and video, in-body stabilisation expands working ranges enormously benefiting low-light photography and run-and-gun style videography.

Dual Pixel AF II with Deep Learning Enables Precise Subject Tracking

For reliably keeping moving subjects in sharp focus the EOS R5 leverages a sophisticated AF system pairing on-sensor Dual Pixel AF II with a deep learning algorithm. It can accurately track the whole body, face, and eyes of humans plus the bodies of animals both domestic pets and birds even when viewed from profile orientations. The latest firmware also enables vehicle tracking. The AI-based AF programming continues optimising subject detection as you use the camera. From action shots to candid portraits, eye detection focuses superbly.

Direct File Transfer over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth connectivity make wireless operation with the EOS R5 very flexible. Using the Canon Camera Connect app you can remotely control the camera from iOS and Android devices, browse photos, and transfer JPEGs quickly. An always-on low-energy Bluetooth connection enables faster Wi-Fi connections when needed then powering back down to conserve battery life. The R5 also supports wireless direct transfer of image files into FTP servers making field delivery of assets highly efficient. No extra accessories are needed to enable wireless connectivity and file transfer from the EOS R5 camera itself.

High Frame Rate 4K HQ Video Recording

In addition to the full 8K video, the EOS R5 offers oversampled 4K recording derived from the 8K sensor readout. Shooting 4K video this way retains exceptional clarity, sharpness, and detail in the footage. The camera supports 4K at up to 120 frames per second for producing fluid 5x slow motion effects during post-production. The 4K HQ mode stands out by recording 4K using an 8K pixel readout and then downsampling on the device – bypassing the need to shoot 8K when all you need is 4K. The results exhibit stunning quality ready for professional use with virtually no moire or aliasing artifacts.

Extensive Lens Compatibility via EF Adapters

The EOS R5 pairs optimally with Canon’s lineup of high-performance RF mount lenses. It retains seamless compatibility with existing Canon EF and EF-S lenses using one of Canon’s lens mount adapters, with no loss of image quality or performance compared to native RF lenses. This allows you to continue using trusted lenses in your kit as you upgrade camera bodies or add new RF lenses for specific needs. Especially valuable for professionals heavily invested in Canon glass, you can upgrade just the camera yet retain the capability to use your favourite lenses you’ve come to rely on when EF mount compatibility is needed.

Comparing the Canon EOS R5

EOS R5 vs. EOS R6

As mirrorless cameras designed for professional photography, the EOS R6, sharing a lineage with the R5, is known for its speed and low-light performance, while the R5 excels in high-resolution imaging. However, the EOS R5 steps ahead with its emphasis on high-resolution imaging and advanced 8K video capabilities. Catering to professionals who require the utmost detail and image quality, the R5 stands out for tasks where every pixel counts.

It’s the go-to choice for high-end commercial photography, cinematic video production, and any scenario where image resolution cannot be compromised.

EOS R5 vs. EOS R6 II

The EOS R6 II, as an evolutionary step from the EOS R6, brings enhancements in speed and autofocus capabilities. Despite these improvements, it remains distinct in its focus when compared to the R5. The EOS R5 continues to be the premier choice for high-resolution photography and sophisticated video production.

It offers a unique blend of features, especially in terms of its 8K video capability and advanced imaging prowess, that the R6 II, focused more on general versatility, does not match.

EOS R5 vs. Sony A7IV

In the face-off against the Sony A7IV, the EOS R5 asserts its dominance in several key areas. While the A7IV is undoubtedly a formidable competitor in the mirrorless camera market, the EOS R5 eclipses it with superior resolution and video capabilities. The R5’s 8K recording feature, in particular, sets a new benchmark in the industry.

Additionally, the R5’s autofocus system and state-of-the-art image stabilisation grant it a distinct advantage, especially for professionals tackling dynamic and challenging shooting environments.

What We Think of the Canon EOS R5

As a camera shop specialist celebrating over 70 years in business, we have seen our fair share of camera launches from all the major manufacturers. The Canon EOS R5 however stands out as one of the most impressive releases we’ve seen yet in the mirrorless era.

Canon engineered this camera without compromise across all facets – resolution, speed, video capabilities, durability, and more. 45 megapixels at 20 frames per second captures fast action is spectacular clarity. Unsurpassed 8K RAW video puts cinema production directly in your hands. The weather-sealed body provides reassurance when shooting in rough conditions. Dual card slots, large-capacity battery, and ergonomic design optimise camera handling.

We are thoroughly impressed by how Canon managed to balance such high resolution with incredible speed and fast intelligent autofocus. The stunning image quality across both still and video recordings retains tons of flexibility for content creation. Having a camera of this calibre truly empowers our customers to think big when it comes to photography and filmmaking ambitions.

Our team unanimously agrees Canon hit a home run with the EOS R5. As a full-frame mirrorless camera, it represents the pinnacle for pros and enthusiasts across multiple genres from weddings and events to nature, wildlife, sports, cinematic productions and more. We carry the entire RF system here to help those interested in building a kit fully optimised for their needs.
