Canon EOS R5 Will Include Powerful 8K Video Features

The Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera

Today, Canon announced some exciting development news about its upcoming high-end EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera: For starters, the EOS R5 will capture 8K video. And as Editor William Brawley of Imaging Resource writes in his news story on the new camera, “And boy, oh boy, if you are serious about shooting video—and perhaps don’t want or need to jump all the way up to a Cinema EOS camera—the new Canon EOS R5 looks like it’ll be an absolute beast of a camera for shooting video!”

According to Canon’s press announcement, the EOS R5 (technically still in development) will ship with the following 8K-video recording capabilities, in-camera image stabilization (IBIS) and more:

  • 8K RAW internal video recording up to 29.97 fps.
  • 8K internal video recording up to 29.97 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265).
  • 4K internal video recording up to 119.88 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265). 4K external recording is also available up to 59.94 fps.
  • No crop 8K and 4K video capture using the full-width of the sensor.
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF available in all 8K and 4K recording modes.

What Imaging Resource points out is that “the new sensor and processor, as well as the camera’s construction, must allow for very efficient processing performance as well as good heat dissipation in order for it to offer such high-resolution and high bitrate video recording capabilities.”
