Canon has announced the development of its latest mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS R5. According to the company, this is the most advanced full-frame mirrorless camera they have ever made. The main attraction of the Canon EOS R5 is its newly designed CMOS sensor and a new image processor. In addition to the EOS R5, Canon plans to release a total of seven RF lenses and two RF lens extenders in 2020 that are currently under development.
The upcoming Canon EOS R5, which we mentioned at the beginning is currently under development, will use a newly designed CMOS sensor. With this, the camera will be able to support advanced features such as continuous shooting up to about 20 fps using an electronic shutter and up to about 12 fps using a mechanical shutter which will help in capturing fast moving objects easily. In addition, the camera will be able to capture 8K videos which will allow users to extract high-resolution still images from video footage as well as process 8K videos into high-quality 4K videos.
Moreover, the Canon EOS R5 also sounds promising when it comes to image stabilization, at least on paper. The upcoming camera will be the first Canon camera to integrate the camera’s in-body stabilizer with an image stabilization system found in an attached RF lens, resulting in better-stabilized shots. And to capture everything, the camera will also feature dual media card slots and support automatic transfer of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform.
As we mentioned above, Canon plans to release a total of 9 RF lenses in 2020, including RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x, and Extender RF 2x. In addition to the EOS R5 mirrorless camera, these lenses will be on display at the CP + Camera and Photo Imaging Show 2020 to be held at the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Hall in Yokohama, Japan from February 27 to March 1.
