A set of alleged Canon EOS R5 Mark II specifications surface on the interweb of rumor sites.

Coming from a source with no known reliability record, these are the suggested Canon EOS R5 Mark II specifications:

  • 62mp Stacked CMOS Image Sensor
  • Variable resolution of 62mp, 31mp, 15.5mp
  • 8K recording up to 60fps internally
  • 4K recording up to 120fps internally
  • DIGIC X2s Processor
  • Dual CFexpress Type-B Card Slots
  • Eye control autofocus
  • A revised variable angle LCD panel
  • 5.76m-DOT 120fps EVF
  • Multi-function hot shoe
  • New battery, but same form as the LP-E6
  • New button layout and controls
  • Launch of new Canon camera app at the same time
  • Projected February 2024 Announcement

Besides the “DIGIC X2s” moniker for the CPU, there is nothing really new here. More an aggregation of various rumors that surfaced in the past. Also, in our experience, it is way to early for a reliable set of specifications; so take it with the necessary amount of salt, even if the source claims it comes “from an internal sales meeting […] with a large retailer”.

All Canon EOS R5 Mark II rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned.

More Cameras With Stacked Sensor Coming From Canon?

Latest rumor has it that Canon might be set to release more cameras featuring a stacked sensor.

Stacked sensor was first introduced with the Canon EOS R3. The source of the rumor claims that Canon will release three new cameras with a stacked sensor. One might be the fabled EOS R1, another one might be the EOS R5 Mark II. Don’t get too excited, though.

The rumor doesn’t come with any consolidating argument nor with a timeline or release date. It’s all very speculative and we recommend you take it with a grain of salt. if ever, these sensors will be seen in 2024.

Stay tuned.

Will The Canon EOS R5 Get Pixel-Shift With A Future Firmware Update?

There was a lot of buzz about Canon releasing the EOS R5 Mark II this year. Then the same source told us that, nope, no EOS R5 Mark II but a massive firmware update instead.

Now the same source claims a future firmware update will bring something called “pixel-shift” to the Canon EOS R5. What is pixel-shift? According to Wikipedia:

Pixel shift is a method in digital cameras for producing a super resolution image. The method works by taking several images, after each such capture moving (“shifting”) the sensor to a new position. In digital colour cameras that employ pixel shift, this avoids a major limitation inherent in using Bayer pattern for obtaining colour, and instead produces an image with increased colour resolution and, assuming a static subject or additional computational steps, an image free of colour moir√©. Taking this idea further, sub-pixel shifting may increase the resolution of the final image beyond that suggested by the specified resolution of the image sensor.

Additionally, assuming that the various individual captures are taken at the same sensitivity, the final combined image will have less image noise than a single capture. This can be thought of as an averaging effect (for instance, in a pixel shift image composed of four individual frames with a classic Bayer pattern, every pixel in the final colour image is based on two measurements of the green channel).

Sounds super-cool, doesn’t it? For that reason alone you should take it with a huge grain of salt.

Stay tuned.

Canon Rumor: No More EOS R5 Mark II In 2023 But A huge firmware update Instead

It seems we will not see the Canon EOS R5 Mark II in 2023. Instead we will see a massive firmware update for the EOS R5, says the same source.

For some time it was suggested with some confidence that Canon might announce the EOS R5 Mark II in 2023. Nope, says the source, and adds that we will see a huge firmware update for the EOS R5, so that it stays “viable through 2023“.

The rumored firmware update for the EOS R5 might bring the following:

  • Lens breathing correction
  • Pre-shooting buffer
  • Removal of 30 minutes record limit
  • Vehicle tracking AF mode (bikes, trains & planes)
  • Additional tracking for more animals
  • More new and unspecified features

As the most attentive readers might already have seen, the features in the list above are all already implemented in the EOS R6 Mark II.

Not surprisingly, the EOS R5 Mark II is now rumored for 2024, as is the EOS R1, after years of “imminent release” rumors.

Stay tuned…

The Canon EOS R5 Mark II Might Get Announced Before The EOS R1

A new rumor surfaced from the interweb of rumor mills. A bit strange, though. The Canon EOS R5 Mark II might get announced before the long rumored EOS R1.

The source of the rumor states that the Canon EOS R5 Mark II…:

[…] will likely arrive before the Canon EOS R1

The rumored specifications for the Canon EOS R5 Mark II are these:

  • New 61MP CMOS BSI sensor
  • Dual DIGIC X processor
  • 30 FPS electronic shutter with tracking / 12 FPS mechanical shutter
  • Same 8-stop IBIS
  • New High Resolution mode similar to pixel shift shooting found on Sony/Fujifilm
  • 2x/4x/8x digital tele-convertor
  • Same Dual Pixel CMOS AF II from EOS R3 and EOS R6 Mark II
  • Internal 8K 60p video recording (8K RAW video spec to be confirmed)
  • Internal 4K 30p/60p/120p video recording (all by oversampling)
  • FHD 240p video recording
  • Focus breathing correction for video
  • New overheat prevention design similar to EOS R6 Mark II, at least 40min for 8K video, and over
  • 60 min for 4K video
  • Dual CFexpress type B card slot
  • Standard HDMI port
  • Dual USB-C port
  • 9.44M-dot EVF
  • New design of vari-angle LCD monitor optimized for video shooting

You better take this all with a reasonable amount of salt. I’d not bet my money on it, neither the specifications nor the announcement.

Stay tuned.
