The Canon EOS R5 Is Real, And Has Just Got Announced (development)

Canon EOS R5 Price

And finally, after a lot of rumors, Canon announced the development of the Canon EOS R5, and of seven new RF lenses and two RF lens extenders. The EOS R5 looks like a hell of a camera. Someone left who thinks Canon doesn’t innovating?

No intel about the price so far, but the a preview of the EOS R5 will be on display at the 2020 WPPI Show (February 25-27) in Las Vegas.

Here is a B&H Explora article about the Canon EOS R5.

Canon EOS R5 Images And Description Leak On The Web

Canon EOS R5 Price

Well, a minute ago it seemed the Canon EOS R5 announcement was a hoax and now it appears we have a serious leak.

The Canon EOS R5 leaked on a non English website, and we are happy to provide the machine translated text. A word of caution: it’s not yet 100% sure that we have the real thing now (and we can’t tell the URL).

However, it seems most of the so far rumored specifications are real (if the leak is real):

  • It will not be named Canon EOS Rs but R5 (all rumors)
  • 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
  • [email protected] RAW
  • [email protected]
  • [email protected]
  • 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 

Here is the machine translated product description of the EOS R5:

A technological war machine, the EOS R5 is the first hybrid camera announced with an 8K video mode. To this first is added the stabilization of the sensor (a first for Canon) or a burst at 20 frames per second.

Canon seems to have understood that these EOS R and EOS RP were not really technologically advanced. As a result of which he takes out of his hat a development announcement that is fun to read. The EOS R5, which is expected to arrive later this year, will be the first “serious” package in the RF mount. The little that Canon has agreed to share is enough to make you salivate.

In the front row, there is the video, 8K! A world first in the world of consumer cameras. An unprecedented skill that would allow Canon to take back the king of video, lost during the transition to 4K for the benefit of Panasonic and other Sony.
Canon does not advertise any frame rate, compression (codec), etc. You’ll have to wait for the launch announcement to learn more.

he other big news is the arrival of mechanical stabilization of the sensor, a first for Canon. This lack of stabilization is partly responsible for the poor ratings we have given to the EOS R and EOS RP.
According to some information leaks, mechanical stabilization alone would save up to five speeds. Coupled with the optical and electronic stabilizations included in certain optics, this mechanical stabilization could allow gaining up to eight speeds.

Then Canon announces an impressive burst of 20 frames per second in electronic shutter, as with the Sony A9, and a burst at 12 frames per second in mechanical shutter, like sports cameras from Canon and Nikon (1DX Mark II or D5) .
Leading performance we hope followed by level tracking algorithms. Let’s also hope that the buffer is generous so that the “sport” potential is not restricted.

Eventually, the EOS R5 will have two memory card slots, which will change from early models limited to one card – sometimes even placed in the battery compartment, like the EOS RP.

Canon Rumour: IBIS Is Coming To The Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6

Canon Eos R1 Rumour

Here is new Canon rumour about the upcoming Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 full frame mirrorless cameras.

After a lot of rumors and a remarkable collection of patent applications about IBIS, it seems to be rather sure Canon will feature it on EOS R5 and EOS R6.

A source claiming to have seen promotional videos of both cameras delivered some more bits about. It’s just a bit surprising that a promotional video for a camera, the EOS R6, said to be announced in May, is already leaking.

However, according to the latest murmuring:

  • The EOS R5 has magnesium alloy body, the R6 has not
  • The EOS R6 has a no top-down LCD
  • The EOS R6 has multiple scroll wheels
  • The EOS R6 has a more rounded shape than existing R models

Sounds all plausible, we just wonder that a promotional video has already been produced (and leaked) months before the announcement. Still possible, though, that Canon made a promo video for both the EOS R6 and R5, despite the former getting announced late than the latter.

We expect the EOS R5 to get announced very soon, i.e. within the next weeks. The Canon EOS R5 is rumored to come with some amazing features, and that’s the reason some people think they are not real (the feats in bold are said to be more likely to be real).

  • It will not be named Canon EOS Rs but 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
  • [email protected] RAW
  • [email protected]
  • [email protected]
  • 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 

Stay tuned for the next Canon rumour.

Will Canon Find A Way To Cripple The EOS R5? These Guys Think So

Canon EOS R With Aps-c

While the Internet is still discussing if the recently leaked EOS R5 and EOS R6 rumors are anything near to reliable, here are some guys who think Canon will cripple the EOS R5 with a hammer (like).

Don’t take the folks at Camera Conspiracies too seriously. The intent is sardonic if not sarcastic. Never the less, they might have some good points. Enjoy.

All Canon R5 rumors are listed here. All Canon EOS R6 rumors are listed here.

Canon Told US One Year Ago That An 8K Capable Canon EOS R Camera Is Coming

Canon EOS R With Aps-c

If you follow us, you’ve seen the latest Canon EOS R5 rumors. And if you did, you might be scratching your head because of the rumored 8K @30fps.

Thanks to an attentive user of CW, it turns out Canon anticipated an EOS R model with 8K video already one year ago (sorry, I forgot). In an interview with Imaging Resource, a Canon exec said:

Video will play a huge role in the EOS R System for sure. For example, an 8K video capable camera is already in our EOS R-series roadmap

However, the “EOS-R-series roadmap” could easily extend over the next 5 years, and nothing in the interview suggests that the Canon EOS R5 will feature 8K video. But then, it has been said by a Canon executive, so at least you can be sure that it will be featured on some future EOS R camera. Now it’s to see how far in the future this EOS R camera is.

One thing is sure: if the EOS R5 comes with 8K, then Sony might be in serious troubles.

Stay tuned.

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

Canon EOS R With Aps-c

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
  • [email protected] RAW
  • [email protected]
  • [email protected]
  • 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.
