Tag Archives: Canon EOS R5
Canon launched the EOS R System in Hawaii on Sept 5, 2018 with the Full-Frame Mirrorless EOS R camera and RF lenses. At that time, it was made clear that there would be more to come. The more affordable EOS RP was released in March 2019. For the third act in the EOS R series, Canon introduced the R5 and R6 cameras on July 9, 2020. Both cameras are weather, dust and spray resistant. My favorite feature, carried from the original R, is the mechanical shutter that completely covers and protects the sensor from dust when changing lenses (when the camera is turned off). All cine and mirrorless still cameras should have this.
This should catch your attention. Canon’s new EOS R5 is a 45 Megapixel Full-Frame RF-mount mirrorless hybrid still/video camera that shoots and records 8K DCI 12-bit RAW at 2600 Mbps to an internal CFexpress card. You may not wear socks from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but if you did, the R5 specs might just knock your socks off.
