A month since its development announcement of the EOS R5 – a full frame mirrorless camera built on the EOS R System – Canon Inc has quashed claims of the cameras ‘impossible’ specs.

Canon has confirmed that the EOS R5 will be able to record 8K video internally using the full width of the sensor at up to 30p.

In addition, in all 8K modes it will support Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF. 

Canon also affirmed that the EOS R5 supports advanced animal AF – recognising 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.

Binoj Nair, marketing director B2C business unit, Canon Middle East said: “We’ve seen speculation that the EOS R5’s specs are ‘impossible’. Today’s announcement confirms once again, we are achieving the ‘impossible’ in order to support our customers’ need for a camera that delivers exceptional image quality and video capture. “As an industry leader, we are challenging the market with this launch and showing what’s possible with our technology. The EOS R5 and the RF lens system is proof of our commitment to redefine mirrorless and shows Canon’s unparalleled strength in creating products with true purpose.”
