Powerful image stabilisation for new ways of shooting
The EOS R5 features a five-axis in-body Image Stabiliser, which provides up to 5 stops of protection against camera shake when shooting with lenses that don’t have their own IS. However, when a compatible IS-equipped RF lens is fitted the two stabilisation systems work together creating an Intelligent Image Stabilisation system that delivers an incredible 8-stop advantage.
New levels of realism from an electronic viewfinder
The EOS R5’s electronic viewfinder refreshes at 120 frames per second and features no fewer than 5.76 million dots. The result is a staggering realistic view of the world that will have you feeling totally immersed in the scene – as if there is nothing between you and your subject. Of course, this state-of-the-art EVF also previews factors such as white balance, depth of field and Picture Style, so you’ll always know what you're shooting.
AF and subject tracking powered by deep-learning AI
The EOS ITR AF X autofocus system in the EOS R5 has been programmed using a deep-learning AI, originally developed for Canon's EOS-1D X Mark III. In Face/Eye detection mode, the system recognises faces accurately, including those in profile when only one eye is visible. This ensures subjects are kept razor sharp, even when moving unpredictably and depth of field is shallow. And if a person turns away for a moment, their head continues to be tracked so that their face is sharp when they turn back towards the camera. Furthermore, the EOS R5’s deep-learning AI has been programmed with the ability to recognise and track cats, dogs and birds – focusing on either their bodies, faces or eyes. This makes photographing wildlife easier than ever before, especially subjects such as birds in flight. This class-leading AF system can focus in as little as 0.05sec and in light levels as low as -6EV giving you the confidence you need to capture superb results.
More powerful battery
The EOS R5 is powered by a more powerful new LP-E6NH battery, which adds 20 per cent more capacity than older LP-E6N batteries, letting you capture (on average) 490 shots on a single charge. LP-E6NH batteries can be charged using the supplied battery charger or in-camera via USB C 3.1, with 5V/1.5A power delivery (PD) capabilities. The BG-R10 battery grip is also available, which can accommodate two batteries at once for extended shooting times.
Shoot RAW video at 8K resolution
Capture superb 8K 12-bit RAW video using the full width of the EOS R5’s full-frame sensor for a truly cinematic result, with footage being captured internally to a CFexpress card. 8K filming is possible with continuous AF with eye and face tracking – perfect for run-and-gun style documentary filming. RAW 8K footage gives the best image quality on the EOS R5, but 8K can be captured in other ways too, which speed up the editing workflow – choose between 10-bit 4:2:2 MP4/H.265 or 8-bit 4:2:0 MP4/H.265 codecs.
Alongside its ground-breaking 8K capabilities, the EOS R5 sets new standards for videographers shooting in 4K. Capture 4K DCI (full frame) and 4K UHD at frame rates up to 120p (119.88fps) with 4:2:2/10-bit quality, enabling silky smooth slow-motion with stunning high resolution. At frame rates up to 59.94fps, there is a choice between using the full width of the camera’s sensor or a 1.6x crop, which is similar in size to Super 35mm. For those needing the very highest 4K quality, the EOS R5’s 4K HQ mode reproduces stunning detail at frame rates up to 30p by oversampling 8K footage. The results need to be seen to be believed.
