Canon EOS R5 Rumor: Updated Specification List (45MP confirmed)

Here is a new Canon EOS R5 Rumor. The EOS R5 was previously rumored as “EOS Rs”. We expect the Canon EOS R5 to get announced February 13, 2020.

A few days ago a specification list for the Canon EOS R5 emerged. While there were some plausible features listed, other specs look too good to be true (especially the video features).

Now we have a slightly corrected specification list coming from the same source. Have a look below (the more reliable/plausible specifications are in bold):

  • It will be named Canon EOS R5
  • 45mp full frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K@30fps RAW
  • 4K@120fps
  • 4K@60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month
  • Shipping in July 2020 

We are still a bit puzzled by the 4K video at 120 fps, and also about the 8K raw video. This can only come with a crop factor in our opinion. On the other hand, our own sources confirmed the sensor resolution to be 45MP, so I guess this one should be safe now. This new specification list pretty much differs from a previous spec list coming from the same source.

The Canon EOS R5 would be the first of three rumored new Canon EOS R bodies to get announced this year. There is the EOS Rm, a camera rumored to be even more inexpensive and entry-level than the EOS RP (but is this possible, given that the EOS RP currently sells for less than $1,000?) And then there is this possible, third Canon EOS R camera coming in 2020. We know as good as nothing about this one. Will this one be a sports camera? Or is this just the EOS R Mark II?

It’s getting hot and hotter, folks. A Canon EOS R5 announcement before CP+ Show means there will be more leaks and also images very soon. So, stay tuned for the next Canon EOS R5 rumor.
