The EOS R5 builds off of the powerful legacy of Canon’s full frame cameras offering next generation refinements in image quality, performance and reliability. It’s an ideal choice for a large range of photographic and cinematographic environments from weddings, portraits, sports, journalism, landscape, cinematography and more.
Canon’s all-new 45 Megapixel full-frame sensor is at the heart of the EOS R5’s superb image quality, which also leads the way for impressive 8K DCI cinematic movie capture with theability to extract 35.4 Megapixel still images. Focus and speed are paramount in the EOS R5, providing impressive continuous capture at speeds of up to 20 frames-per-second and with Dual Pixel CMOS AF II capability, to track split second movements of eventhe most elusive of subjects. With 1,053 Automatic AF zones, it is easier than ever to photograph people with the use of Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or intuitively track the whole body, face or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection*2AF. The 5-axis in-body image stabilization can effectively compensate for camera shake with approximately 8 stops of stabilization*with use of certain non-stabilized, and optically image stabilized lenses. Connectivity like 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi®and Bluetooth®, is also included.
8K RAW, 4K up to 120fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 with Canon Log or HDR PQ, Internal Recording in all Formats, with Auto Focus.
With the high-speed processing capability of the DIGIC Ximage processor, the EOS R5 is ableto record 8K movies (uncropped, atup to 29.97 fps) – a first for Canon full-frame mirrorless cameras. 4K video shooting is also possible at up to 119.9fps, in 4:2:2 10-bit (H.265) Canon Log, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF is available in all 8K and 4K modes. Image-makers worldwide will be able to tell their stories in larger-than-life resolutions. Additional new features include: Internally recorded and uncropped 8K RAW Recording up to 29.97 fps with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, and HDR-PQ Recording (H.265) capability.
In-body Image Stabilizer can provide up to 8 stops of Shake Correction*.
The EOS R5 is Canon’s first camera to incorporate 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization). This camera will not only enhance the ability to shoot still images at slower shutter speeds but it will also help reduce camera shake when shooting movies. Additionally, the EOS R5’s IBIS will work in combination with Optical Image Stabilization found in many Canon RF and EF lenses. *When combined with certain IS lenses such as the RF24-105mm F4 IS L USM, or when used with certain non-IS lenses as well.
Dual Card Slots for CF express**and UHS-II SD Memory Cards***
Whether you are shooting photos every day, or are recording 8K videos, the EOS R5 camera can capture an incredible amount of images through its super high-speed CF express dual card slots. Plus a UHS-II SD***card slot is also provided at your disposal. **Type B compatible. ***Some types of data cannot be saved on the SD memory card.
0.5-type OLED EVF with Approx. 5.76 Million Dots
The EOS R5 camera features a high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 5.76 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera. The EOS R5’s EVF supports a 120 fps refresh rate^1and has been created to provide a bright, sharp and colorful 100% view of the subject at hand, displaying a crisp and vivid image with minimal aberration or distortion. ^1Display may be grainier.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
The EOS R5 camera features a 3.15-inch, 2.1 Megapixel Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD.

The brightness of the EVF and the LCD monitor can even be adjusted individually. Touch screen features include settings, review and even AF point selection.
Dot-matrix LCD Panel
An LCD panel on the top of the camera features a dot-matrix display that shows information on the camera’s status, recording mode and more. It gives real-time setting information both when the camera is in use or on standby, and can be inverted from black to white to suit viewing preferences or the ambient light source.
