Canon EOS R5 (Under Development): Updated Video Specs

a little bit of 8K/30P in my life
a little bit of 4K/120P by my side
a little bit of 12fps is all I need
a little bit of IBIS is what I see
a little bit of Face, Head and Eye tracking in the sun
a little bit of Dual Card Slots all night long
a little bit of full-frame sensor here I am
a little bit of FREE Cloud Service makes me your man

(Apologies to Lou Bega and his Mambo No. 5)

Canon is obviously playing the teasing game with us concerning the upcoming, still-under-development EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera. I mean the camera is still in development and they even have a product showcase page for it on their site. Being the only full-frame mirrorless to offer 8K (no crop) video at 30P, 4K/120P (no crop), and Dual Pixels AF for video, it feels that it can brag a little bit here, brag a little bit there. It’s also bragging that it finally has IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization), which will work in tandem with the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) in its lenses.

What’s exciting for us is that it looks like, after ignoring serious mirrorless development for 12 years, Canon is finally taking mirrorless seriously. Finally. It seems that it is even getting excited to go head to head with the established mirrorless brands, and its engineers are having fun again. Good news for consumers. Scary thought for all other mirrorless camera manufacturers.
