The Canon EOS R5 Has Zebra Peaking, Video Reveals

Zebra peaking is something we missed in one of the EOS R5 hands-on videos we posted after Canon’s reveal of new EOS R5 specifications.

We featured five first impression videos posted by some lucky folks who got the chance to play around with the EOS R5. In the last one of the videos, now made private, you can briefly spot a menu section with a “Zebra settings” entry (image on top, thanks Jonathan for the tip).

It seems 45MP resolution are indirectly confirmed through the revealed specifications. Canon says the R5 will shoot DCI 8192 x 4320. That means the sensor has a width of 8192 pixels. Given the 3:2 ratio the height is 5461 pixels. All sums up to a 44.7MP sensor.

During the live-streamed announcement (you can watch it again here) Canon revelead the second teaser after the development announcement and a subsequent reveal of more specifications. All R5 coverage is listed here.
