And here we are again. A new rumor about the Canon EOS R model with…
Remember the Canon EOS R5c? It’s Canon’s rumored EOS R camera for Cinema (hence the “c”). New bits emerged from the interweb of rumor mills.
Canon Rumors reports with high confidentiality a set of possible Canon EOS R5c specifications. Without further ado, here they are:
- Canon Log 3
- Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
- Unlimited 8K30P recording in Cinema RAW Light. XF-AVC and MP4
- Timecode in/out
- The same multipurpose hot shoe as the EOS R3. Which will work with accessories such as the Tascam XLR module.
- Active cooling
- 3/8″ or 1/4″ mounting point on the EVF for a top handle that won’t interfere with the hot shoe.
- Full-size HDMI Port
- The LCD has been moved further back to accommodate the cooling fan. So this likely means that it won’t recess into the body like the Canon EOS R5.
“Active cooling” sounds interesting. Might make it bulkier, and allow for long recording times with 4K and 8K. Announcement of the Canon EOS R5c is expected in 2022. The moniker comes from the community and not from Canon.
