Canon EOS R5 Announcement Getting Closer – Adobe Adds File Support

Canon Eos R5 Announcement

Any doubt left that the Canon EOS R5 announcement is imminent? Here is another proof it’s coming.

Adobe added support for the Canon EOS R5 files to Premier Pro.

  • Enhanced bitrate controls for JPEG 2000 MXF export
  • Import of Canon EOS R5 footage
  • Import of Canon EOS-1D X Mark III footage
  • Import of RED Komodo footage

Premiere Pro is just the first Adobe product to get official EOS 5 support, all the other will follow soon.

Canon already partially disclosed specifications and features (1 | 2) of the EOS R5, and there is not much left to discover but the price. After the last specification reveal there are even some videos to watch. All R5 coverage is listed here. All we know about the Canon EOS R5 specifications is listed below.
