Canon is currently developing the EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera containing CMOS sensor, image processing, optical, and other state-of-the-art technologies the company has cultivated through its long history of camera development. The EOS R System enables greater freedom in lens design thanks to a wider lens mount diameter, short back focus, and high-speed system for transmitting data between the camera and lens, resulting in an imaging system that delivers higher image quality and greater ease-of-use.
The new full-frame mirrorless camera, currently under development, will fully leverage the advantages of the EOS R System, helping to produce a camera that features high-speed continuous shooting and 8K video recording. Furthermore, the camera will provide photographers with more efficient workflows thanks to improved transmission functionality, operability and reliability. These enhancements, along with many others, will help to further elevate and solidify the EOS Series concept of "Speed, Comfort and High-Image-Quality."
Canon's EOS R5, the first of the next generation of full-frame mirrorless cameras planned for EOS R System, will include a newly developed CMOS sensor. The new sensor will enable enhanced features such as high-speed continuous shooting up to approximately 20 fps when using the silent shutter and up to approximately 12 fps when using the mechanical shutter; a feature professional sports and wildlife photographers will find to be extremely impactful on their ability to capture fast-moving subjects. From a video perspective, the camera's 8K video capture capability will prepare videographers for the future of movie-making: capturing 8K footage today allows for even higher-quality 4K productions in addition to the ability to extract high-resolution still images from the video footage. The EOS R5 will be the first Canon camera equipped with IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) and when used in conjunction with the extremely effective in-lens stabilization (IS), will allow photographers to handhold the camera in light levels not previously imagined. Additionally, the camera will also feature dual-card slots and will support the automatic transfer of image files from the device to the new image.canon cloud platform.
