Have the best of both worlds at your fingertips, Cinema EOS and EOS Technology, videography and photography! Canon is bridging the gap with their new, all-in-one compact-and-lightweight camera. Welcome the new Canon EOS R5 C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera! A true hybrid, the Canon EOS R5 C showcases video formats and features from Canon’s Cinema EOS line, as well as select still capabilities from the popular EOS R5. The Canon EOS R5 C truly has something for everyone!
When it comes to the cinema side of the Canon EOS R5 C, it delivers 8K video with outstanding definition and realism with four times the resolution of 4K video. This enables unprecedented capabilities in video expression and highly flexible workflows, such as 4K cropping from 8K footage. Non-stop, uninterrupted 8K/60P recording is also possible thanks to an active cooling system. The EOS R5 C can record High Frame Rate (HFR) video up to 120P at 4K resolution in 4:2:2 10-bit without cropping the sensor, an ideal option when shooting scenes full of fast-paced action or when the camera is paired with a gimbal or drone. Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF is functional even in HFR shooting. Unlike some cameras where audio is not recorded during HFR shooting, the EOS R5 C camera can record .WAV audio as a separate file from video, virtually eliminating the need for separate audio recording.
The EOS R5 C is the first Canon camera to provide internal 8K (8192×4320) 60P Cinema RAW Light recording. This feature captures the full dynamic range of the sensor and provides video data with a cinematic look, optimized for advanced grading and HDR, in a more manageable file size than Cinema RAW. Cinema RAW Light now has three newly-developed modes, RAW HQ (high quality), RAW ST (standard quality), and RAW LT (light recording). All three modes are 12-bit regardless of frame rate. The EOS R5 C can also record 8K video in MP4 format, ideal for quicker delivery.
The EOS R5 C supports RAW output via HDMI for ProRes RAW recording with a compatible external recorder. When connecting the EOS R5 C with a supported external recorder, users can shoot in Apple ProRes RAW at up to 8K/30P. Proxy data can also be simultaneously recorded to an SD card in-camera, helping to provide efficient post-production operations.
Then switching to the photography side of the EOS R5 C, users will find the familiar Canon EOS R they know and love. At its heart is a 45-megapixel high resolution, high-speed full-frame CMOS sensor, paired with the equally impressive DIGIC X image processor. This gives users an ISO range of 100-51200; expandable to 102400.
Precise focus and lightning-fast speed are cornerstones of the EOS R5 C, featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF II and high-speed continuous shooting of up to 12 frames-per-second (fps) in mechanical shutter mode and up to 20 fps in silent electronic shutter mode. This allows users to track and photograph split-second movements of even the most elusive subjects. With EOS iTR AF X and 1,053 Automatic AF zones, it is easier than ever to photograph people using Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or intuitively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection AF. For those with the need for speed, the camera also offers vehicle subject detection to track cars and motorcycles accurately, especially in race-type environments.
