Canon is going for broke with EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless.
In a press release from Canon Australia, more information has come to light about the Canon EOS R5 since its development was confirmed. The most surprising feature will be its ability to record 8K internally using the full width of the sensor up to 29.97fps (30p).
Canon is also confirming all 8K modes will support Dual Pixel CMOS AF and will include eye, face, and body autofocus. There will also be advanced animal AF that “recognizes dogs, cats and birds, relying not only on the eyes of the animal but also the face and body for situations when the eyes are not visible.” Additionally, a new in-body image stabilization system (IBIS) will be developed to work in combination with the lens stabilization of Canon lenses. Here’s what we know so far.
