The Canon R5 Mirrorless Camera has given photographers and filmmakers an interesting surprise by revealing a few more of its official specs. The EOS R5 camera will surely be a game-changer for mirrorless cameras. According to the latest specs revealed, the Canon EOS camera will shoot 10-bit 4K Canon Log video using the full width of the sensor at up to a striking 120 fps. This spec of the EOS Mirrorless camera will definitely beat any other camera of its era.
Also, there is another very exciting and important of the camera that has never been seen before. With this camera, you’ll be able to capture 8K video at up to 30 fps and 10-bit external 10-bit 4K at 60 fps.
Canon R5 Mirrorless Camera will Shoot both 4K and 8K Videos
According to the latest video specs revealed by Canon, the R5 is capable to capture both 4K and 8K video using the full width of the sensor. But still, it isn’t confirmed whether the 4K video will be filmed using down-sampling or line-skipping. The fact that how the 4K will be captured using either of the two methods will be known, however, with time.
One way or the other, you’re at an advantage because of the shallow depth-of-field capability of the full-frame sensor. The EOS R5 Mirrorless Camera will also have a greater low-light capability to boot which will be great for filming in low-light conditions.
Another important and eye-catching spec is of the Canon EOS R5 video codecs. When shooting uncropped 8K and 4K, the R5 will shoot 4:2:2 10-bit in Canon Log (H.265) or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265). Already known, you’ll also be able to shoot an 8K Raw video internally at up to 29.97fps.
Other Video Specs of the R5 Camera
One of the other best specs I have known so far is the Canon’s outstanding Dual Pixel autofocus. The Dual Pixel autofocus of the EOS Camera will work for both the 4K and 8K recording modes. This feature will make the camera in much demand for the run-and-gun documentary makers and filmmakers. The company also says that the R5 will be first from Canon with a 5 axis in-body stabilization (IBIS) system. This stabilization system will work together with many of EF and RF lenses.
Also, the Canon R5 Camera will also have an advanced animal subject-tracking AF. With this feature, the EOS R5 will be able to recognize animals and birds detecting either their body, face or eye of the subject.
Dual Card Slots
The company also says that you’ll get dual card slots with one SD UHS-II slot and one CFexpresss slot. This shows that the EOS R5 has one eye on charming semi-pros and affluent amateurs too. CFexpress cards provide you with incredible data transfer rates that are perfect for shooting 8K video and rapid stills. But a drawback is that they are significantly pricier than the more common SD cards.
Also, one of the most interesting is that the R5 camera will be able to shoot 4K video at up to 120fps. This will make it a potentially great option for capturing high-quality slo-mo footage.
With all of the specs mentioned above, it can be clearly concluded that the Canon R5 Mirrorless Camera will surely be a game-changer. These specs prove that this camera will blow away rivals with not a single drawback in-sight. It will be the best mirrorless camera present in the market till now. However, the price is still a question, but it’ll be known too with time.
