Canon R5 - The Tool For Professionals

The Canon R5 is a brilliant full-frame camera body that delivers all the features professional, and enthusiast photographers are looking for. Featuring a 45MP full-frame sensor with a built-in image stabilizer, the Canon EOS R5 is capable of 8K video recording and continuous shooting at 20 frames per second thanks to a combination of a mechanical shutter and electronic shutter. Professional photographers and cinematographers can continue capturing with dual memory card slots and Wi-Fi capabilities without worrying about running out of space. The Canon R5 is truly a game-changer when it comes to sports and wildlife photography. In combination with the fast continuous shooting, Canon adopts Dual Pixel CMOS AF to ensure the professional camera keeps ahead of the competition. Plus, with an eye, face and head autofocus functionality up its sleeve, it’s no wonder we are witnessing a move over to this camera body.

A Canon Camera With 8K Video Recording - Remarkable!

With the DiGiC X Processor onboard, the Canon EOS R5 can capture seamless 8K RAW video in Canon LOG. With impressive battery life and an electronic viewfinder to match, cinematographers can use a host of Canon’s RF lenses to record movies and short films, all at the press of a button. In terms of the specs, the Canon R5 can record uncropped 8K video up to 29.97fps and 4K video recording at up to 119.9fps. These two frame rates make this professional camera an ideal companion in all environments.

Class-Leading Autofocus That Works When You Need It Most 

Canon’s engineering team have certainly put their best foot forward when it comes to subject detection. The Canon R5 is amazingly fast when half-pressing the shutter button. This is all thanks to the Ultra-High-Speed Autofocus that automatically detects a face, head or someone’s eye when the People detection mode is set. In addition to humans, cats, dogs and birds are also able to be tracked with ease.

The Canon EOS R5 Body Houses A Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The Canon EOS R5 is built with quality in mind. Housing a 45MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with Pixel CMOS AF II, the Canon R5 delivers a quality resolution that’s sharp every time you press the shutter button. The full-frame sensor also allows the camera to shoot 8K video clips as 10-bit HDR videos.

Continuous Shooting at 20 Frames Per Second

The Canon EOS R5 can assist professional sports and wildlife photographers with state of the art Dual Pixel CMOS AF system at 20 frames per second. Using the mechanical shutter, photographers can obtain up to 12fps, whereas the electronic shutter (silent shutter) offers the higher spec. We highly recommend pairing this feature with Canon’s range of RF lenses, including the Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens, Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Canon RF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens or Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM Lens.

Canon EOS R5 Battery Life

If you are out in the field, having a camera body with a reliable battery is essential for photography and video. The Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera uses the Canon LP-E6NH rechargeable Li-ion battery, capable of 320 photos before recharging is required. If you need more shots, there’s also an optional BG-R10 Canon Battery Grip that holds a second battery, doubling the number of photos you can take.

A Camera Body with Stabilization For All Your RF Lenses

Canon has made a statement with the Canon EOS R5. This Canon camera is the first mirrorless to feature a 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization) system. In simple terms, this image stabilizer will make all of your RF lenses stable for video and still photos. The stabilizer works with the electronic shutter and welcomes longer focal lengths. If you have an RF or EF lens with an Optical Stabilizer, then the IBIS will work in unison to ensure you get the lowest shutter speeds possible without blur.

Dual Card Slots For Greater Flexibility and Backup

Featuring a dual card slot, the R5 meets expectations for Australian photographers. The CFexpress and SD are UHS-II compatible, meaning they will handle faster read and write speeds for image files. Card saving combinations include saving videos and stills on separate slots, sequential or backup. Our recommendation that works well with the DiGiC X Processor is the 

Final Thoughts On The Popular Canon EOS R5

If you are using this Canon camera as an upgrade from your previous EOS model, then you’re sure to be impressed. As soon as you look through the electronic viewfinder, you’ll see that it’s a new world to explore. The crisp 8K RAW video is breathtaking. Combine this with the Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system, and it’s a match made in heaven, both for photos and video.

Canon has put the user first with tonnes of functionality beyond the shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Wi-Fi will become a staple for image transfer as well as the dual card system. Pairing the popular Canon EOS R5 body with Canon’s impressive growing line-up of RF lenses means you’ll have every focal length covered. So whatever your photography style or videography genre, the Canon EOS R5 is the perfect camera for you.
