Canon EOS R System Announcement

Canon EOS R5

The first announcement from the Canon EOS R System Announcement is the Canon EOS R5. 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 both photographic and cinematographic environments. From weddings, to portraits, sports, journalism, landscape, cinematography and more, the EOS R5 can handle it all. 

Canon EOS R5

Canon’s all-new 45 Megapixel full-frame sensor is at the heart of the EOS R5’s superb image quality. The sensor also leads the way for impressive 8K DCI cinematic movie capture with the ability to extract 35.4 Megapixel still images. Focus and speed are also 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 even the most elusive of subjects.  The EOS R5 has 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*2 AF. 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.

Canon EOS R6

The EOS R6 full-frame mirrorless camera is designed to meet the demands of both photographers and video content creators who want a strong and versatile camera to keep up with their active lives. It can go from photographing high-speed action sports to filming 4K cinematic video with ease. The EOS R6’s high-performance CMOS sensor and DIGIC X image processor are sure to impress. 

Canon EOS R6

The EOS R6 features the same base image sensor and image processor as the EOS-1D X Mark III. This gives the R6 a native ISO range of 100-102,400. It boasts high-speed continuous shooting. You can expect continuous shooting of up to 12 fps with the Mechanical shutter. The R6 also includes an impressive 20 fps with Electronic “silent” shutter. Either way, the EOS R6 can keep up with just about any fast moving subject.  Combined with the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system with approx. 100% coverage of the frame, and 1,053 Automatic AF Zones, the EOS R6 will confidently follow elusive subjects at 20fps for sharp images.

Tracking subjects is easy and intuitive with the ability to track people using Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or when tracking the whole body, face or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection AF. With the new 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer, up to 8-stops of shake correction is possible with both non-stabilized and optically image-stabilized lenses, opening up many more creative opportunities for incredibly stable lower light photo or video content creation. 

Those also looking for creative cinematic video options will appreciate frame rates including 4K 60P and Full HD 120P with the option of internally recorded 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log or HDR-PQ recording. And the inclusion of Dual SDXC UHS-II card slots combined with Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® allows for multiple transfer and automatic backup options, making the EOS R6 ready when you are.
