High Resolution Canon EOS R Undergoing Testing Mentioned Again, 90MP Sensor

High Resolution Eos R

Last week we got a suggestion about the rumored high resolution Canon EOS R. Our source suggested a 150MP resolution, which we posted with some cautionary advise.

A new rumor about the Canon high resolution EOS R model came up. The source of this rumor suggests that 1) the high resolution EOS R is already undergoing testing by selected photographers (we got the same suggestion last year), and 2) the resolution might be closer to what we got suggested last year, i.e. a resolution somewhere around 90MP. According to the source the resolution is “significantly lower than 150mp” and “just about doubles” the 45mp in the upcoming Canon EOS R5.

The only other bit that emerged so far is that the high resolution EOS R will not be that strong on the video features side, which is to expect from a high resolution camera.

This EOS R model might get announced at the beginning of 2021. The next Canon EOS R cameras that we expect to get announced are the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

Stay tuned.

Canon reveals further EOS R5 details – shutting down speculation that some specs are ‘a fantasy’

Sydney, AUSTRALIA, 13th March 2020: Canon INC has today released further development specifications for its recently announced Canon EOS R5, the next-generation full-frame interchangeable lens camera in the company’s EOS R System. These additional details come exactly one month since Canon released the development announcement of the EOS R5 and shut down speculation that some of its revolutionary specifications are ‘a fantasy’.

Signalling a new phase of Canon 5-Series imaging and a revolution in the mirrorless full camera category, Canon’s EOS R5 will offer every photographer – not just professionals – access to high-quality imaging, cutting-edge 8K movie recording, new approaches to in-body image stabilisation, and revolutionary subject detection and tracking performance features.

New possibilities for movie performance
Unleashing new possibilities, Canon Inc. confirms the EOS R5’s video capabilities will exceed that of competing cameras on the market1. With its ability to internally record 8K using the full width of the sensor at up to 30p, the latest Canon EOS R camera is set to redefine mirrorless with its market-leading features. In addition, in all 8K modes the EOS R5 will support Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

A beast for subject detection and tracking performance for animals and people
Canon Inc. also confirms the EOS R5 supports advanced animal AF – recognising dogs, cats and birds, relying not only on the eyes of the animal but also the face and body for situations when the eyes are not visible.

Jason McLean, Director – Consumer Imaging & Services, Canon Australia, said: “Our EOS 5-Series was developed fifteen years ago to make full-frame cameras accessible to consumers, not just professional shooters. Today, that purpose remains steadfast as we continue achieving the ‘impossible’ to deliver the hybrid needs of content creators who are demanding uncompromised performance to generate more still and motion visual content than ever before.”

“With its game changing 8K movie capabilities, new approaches to image stabilisation, revolutionary subject detection, and compatibility with Canon’s full suite of EF2 and RF lenses, the EOS R5 represents a category revolution as opposed to product evolution in the interchangeable-lens camera market.”

The EOS R5 specifications previously confirmed by Canon include:
• The EOS R5 offers a step-change in performance with an incredible 12fps using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter offering 20fps
• The EOS R5 takes Canon’s cutting-edge image stabilisation technology to the next level, by including a newly Canon-developed, in-camera image stabilisation system – which works in combination with the lens stabilisation system
• With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R5 supports automatic transfer of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform3
• The highly anticipated EOS R5 will feature dual card slots
• Upon launch, the Canon EOS R5 will also be supported by Canon Australia’s 5-year warranty when purchased from an authorised local dealer4.

Will The Canon EOS R5 Survive The Cripple Hammer?

Canon EOS R5

So, here is another humor(ish) post about the upcoming Canon EOS R5.

The folks at Camera Conspiracies wonders if the EOS R5 will survive Canon’s cripple hammer, i.e. how much the specifications Canon revealed at the development announcement (for instance 8K video) will be reduced in their scale (for instance heavily cropped 8K).

Will the Canon Cripple Hammer let the Canon R5 leave the warehouse untouched? Or will there be a back alley battle to cripple the perfect camera? Does 8k matter? Will Canon IBIS be better than Panasonic and Olympus? Will this camera end my channel like the Fuji XT4 is attempting? Let’s find out :)
