Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Body Summary

The EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless body is the undisputed king of Canon’s mirrorless camera range which delivers a number of groundbreaking industry firsts. It comes packed with features for professional or advanced enthusiasts who shoot both movies and stills. The body shares cutting edge technology with the flagship 1D X Mk III DSLR ensuring the very latest features are now also available for mirrorless users. A 45 megapixel CMOS sensor is cable of adapting to any style of content creation with ultra high resolution detail which is powered by DIGIC X processing. Action, sports and wildlife photographers enjoy high speed continuous shooting with 20fps electronic and 12fps mechanical shutter.

Eye, Face as well as Animal Eye are acquired within 0.05 seconds (when using particular RF lenses) utilising deep learning from the updated Dual Pixel CMOS II autofocus system. Even birds in flight can be tracked with full coverage from 5940 manually selectable focus areas covering the entire frame. ISO ranges span from smooth noise-free ISO 100 to ISO 51200 and AF works down to -6EV for near complete dark capabilities.

Movie capture delivers significant advantages for professional videographers with the world’s first 8K 30p 12bit RAW full-frame video in a 35mm camera. Un-cropped high speed 4K can also be captured at up to 120p for ultra smooth slow motion playback. 5 axis in-body stabilisation delivers up to 8 stops of compensation with certain RF lenses providing users with another class leading shooting advantage. Lens options are limitless with 15 native RF lenses currently available, together with any number of Canon’s huge catalogue of EF and EFS lenses which can be employed with optional lens mount adaptors.

The EOS R5 is weather sealed for outdoor photography and manufactured from durable magnesium alloy providing excellent rigidity and heat dissipation. This allows the camera to record video for a maximum duration of 29min 59sec or 7min 29sec in high speed mode.

High capacity data is recorded using an ultra fast CFexpress card in one slot, whilst the second slot houses an SD card. Power is provided by a new LP-E6NH Lithium-Ion Battery delivering a 17% increase in power over the previous LP-E6N battery, for around 490 shots with the high resolution LCD. Conveniently the battery compartment is backwards compatible with the previous battery pack. Users can deliver and share their content easily with built-in WiFi, USB-C or when connected to a smartphone.

Our Verdict

Canon has pulled out all of the stops with their latest flagship mirrorless camera and the EOS R5 fulfils the needs of professionals with class leading video and stills image capture. The 45 megapixel resolution is ample for gallery quality prints and 8K 30p RAW video is a world first in a 35mm sensor body.

Any style of photography is catered for, including low noise for architecture, fine art or landscape and ultra fast shooting for sports, action and wildlife. Portrait, street and wedding photographers will also benefit from a deep learning autofocus system which recognises subjects instantly, acquiring eye, face or body depending on the situation. Blistering continuous shooting speeds in both mechanical and electronic shutter ensure every moment is captured with the full coverage AF system. With up to 180 RAW and 350 JPGS photographers can shoot through entire action sequences capturing every single perfect moment.

Video recording is both advanced and flexible providing complete versatility starting with the impressive headline 8K 30p. Movie makers also get 120p in full-frame 4K for spellbinding slow motion effects, zebra patterns and 12bit RAW capability. Adding personal styles during edits is simple with Canon log 10bit HEVC and all of this is processed by the high speed DIGIC X engine.

A CFExpress card with a second SD card slot are most welcome, catering for the high volumes of data being captured. In-body stabilisation provides between 6.5 and 8 EV stops of compensation depending on which RF lens is being used for world class hand-held advantage. High quality materials and a weather sealed body add to the long list of pro features ensuring many years of service from this mirrorless body. The EOS R5 is amongst the most powerful content creation tools available today thanks to innovative upgrades throughout virtually every element of the camera.

  • Flagship technology combined for the very latest 45MP high resolution stills and 8K video capture
  • High speed continuous shooting with deep learning Dual Pixel CMOS II autofocus system
  • Exceptional 8 stop image stabilisation for sharp stills and video even when handheld in low light
