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.

  • Imaging sensor: 45mp full frame format
  • The EOS R5 features 5-axis IBIS, and it can work with optical image stabilisation found in many Canon lenses:
  • Frames per second: 12fps (20fps electronic shutter)
  • Video features:
    • 4K at 120fps
    • 4K @at60fps
    • 8K RAW internal video recording up to 29.97 fps
    • 8K internal recording up to 29.97 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265) and 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265).
    • 4K internal recording up to 119.88 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265). 4K external recording is also available up to 59.94 fps

  • Dual card slots: CFexpress and SD UHS-II
  • 5GHz WiFi

  • Price likely around/below US$4000

We expect Canon to announce the EOS R5 in June or July 2020. But there are signs that shipment might get delayed or will start with small figures because of the global pandemic.

Stay tuned.

Adobe Premiere Pro And Final Cut Pro X Now Support H.265/XF-HEVC Recording For The Canon XF705

H.265/XF-HEVC Recording

H.265/XF-HEVC Recording is now supported in Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X.

Canon press release:

Canon Announces Adobe Premiere Pro And Final Cut Pro X Will Now Support H.265/XF-HEVC Recording For The XF705 4K Professional Camcorder

Adobe Update Also Includes Compatibility for Canon EOS C500 Mark II Cinema RAW Light Files

MELVILLE, NY, November 6, 2019 – Stepping up to meet the latest needs of end-users, Canon U.S.A., Inc. a leader in digital imaging solutions, is thrilled to announce that the new version of Adobe® Premiere® Pro and the current version of Final Cut Pro (version 10.4.7) include support for the H.265/XF-HEVC recording format of Canon’s award-winning XF705 4K professional camcorder. The new format brings improvements over the previous H.264 standard, such as improved file compression and bit-rate reduction.

“Software updates like these from Apple and Adobe for the Canon XF705 are critical for working professionals who come to expect and require the very best from their Canon equipment,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon is excited to continue working with companies like Apple and Adobe to ensure that the updates needed to meet the needs of our end-users are available.”

XF-HEVC, sometimes referred to as MPEG-H Part 2 or ITU-T H.265 is the latest video coding standard presented by the ITU-T Coding Experts Group and the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group organizations. The new format incorporates many improvements over H.264/MPEG-4 AVC including the ability to allow for significantly improved file compression performance relative to the existing standards. Users can experience up to a 50 percent bit-rate reduction over the prior format with equivalent image quality.

The new release of Premiere Pro also provides support for Canon’s newly announced EOS C500 Mark II cinema camera. The new camera can record in Canon’s proprietary Cinema RAW Light format, which provides the benefits of RAW recording in a more compact file size. The Canon RAW Plugin for Final Cut Pro will be updated in December to enable support for Canon Cinema RAW Light files from the EOS C500 Mark II cinema camera.

Final Cut Pro version 10.4.7 is currently available from the Mac App Store and the latest Adobe Premiere Pro release will be available in early November 2019. For more information, please visit pro.usa.canon.com.
