Canon announced that it has included two new products, the EOS R5 and EOS R6, in the EOS R system, in which professional photography and video enthusiasts cannot give up. EOS R5 and EOS R6, the new members of the EOS R system, which is accepted as a revolution in the field of the camera, will bring a new breath to the market in terms of speed and resolution with its technical features developed in accordance with the technology of the future.
Designed for professionals, the EOS R5 can record 8K 12-bit RAW and 4K video footage up to 120p in 4: 2: 2 10-bit directly on the memory card, while in the photo part it can take up to 1 20-megapixel 45-megapixel photos. The EOS R5 is also the first full-frame mirrorless camera with these features.
4K 60p video at Full HD, capable of 120p shooting and 20 frames/sec in the first 20.1-megapixel photos that can attract the EOS R6 is making the transition to the mirrorless camera and features ideal hosts for amateur and professional users who want to develop capabilities on these devices.
Professional mirrorless camera
EOS R5 and EOS R6 enable users to capture new levels of detail at industry-leading speeds, thanks to the new generation of CMOS sensor technology combined with high-performance RF lenses. EOS EOS R5 and R6 full automatic exposure (AE) and Auto Focus (AF) tracking and completely silent electronic shutter operation with users to 20 frames/sec 1 up to provide the ability to make shots. In this way, users can capture the action with exceptional quality photos and video shots in any place without disturbing anyone.
By breaking new ground in the EOS series, Canon has integrated the 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) feature to the EOS R5 and EOS R6 models, giving users the advantage of all lens types. Thanks to this intelligent stabilization system, the EOS R5, and EOS R6 allow users to show their creativity at the highest level by adjusting up to 8 stops 2, handheld at low shutter speeds, or video shooting without using a tripod.
The RF mount on the EOS R5 and EOS R6 stabilizes the in-body image thanks to its large diameter. In this way, even when there is movement in the sensor, the light travels to the corners to reach the entire sensor. Use of EF lenses with image stabilization (IS) in the body on EOS R5 and EOS R6; Users of EF lenses can achieve better IS performance as it offers rotation and XY correction. Users can benefit from the 5-axis correction advantage that the EOS R5 and EOS R6 offer in-body IS functionality even when using non-IS-enabled EF lenses.
DIGIC X processor
Canon’s popular DIGIC X processor technology, which is used in the EOS-1D X Mark III, is also included in the EOS R5 and EOS 6 models. The DIGIC X processor supports the next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, maximizing the speed and reliability capability of machines. The world’s fastest AF focuses in as little as 0.05 seconds 3. While the EOS R5 can focus at very low light levels such as -6 EV 5, the EOS R6 is the first EOS camera to offer the minimum EV level in AF with -6.5 EV 4.5.
EOS R5 and EOS R6, with iTR AF X AF system and face/eye detection mode programmed using deep learning artificial intelligence (AI), make things clear even in unexpected movements in the shallow field of view. The EOS R5 and EOS R6 can be focused and tracked precisely, regardless of subject size, posture, orientation, or face orientation, allowing users to shoot with confidence even in the most unstable subject movements.
5 GHz Wi-Fi Support
With built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi features, EOS R5 (5 GHz Wi-Fi 8) and EOS R6 (2.4 GHz Wi-Fi 8 ) can easily connect to smartphones or networks and can perform high-speed file sharing and FTP / FTPS transfer.
EOS R5: Introduction to 8K Age
The EOS R5 represents the revolution in mirrorless technology and offers its users the 6 highest resolution levels ever achieved from an EOS camera. By combining the DIGIC X processor, CMOS sensor, and RF lenses, a resolution exceeding 45 megapixels is achieved. With 5940 selectable AF points and 100-51,200 ISO range, up to 100% AF coverage allows 7 subjects to be shot clearly even in extremely low lighting conditions. Placed in a weatherproof magnesium alloy body, the dual card slot supports high-speed CFexpress or SD UHS II cards.
Using the full width of the sensor, professionals using the EOS R5 find the opportunity to achieve a truly cinematic result with sight and face-free AF tracking in person and animal shots and capture eye-catching 8K 12-bit RAW videos internally. EOS R5 also sets new standards for videographers in the 4K shooting. Videographs can shoot high resolution and smooth slow motion with 4: 2: 2 10 bit quality with EOS R5, 4K DCI (full-frame), and 4K UHD shots at up to 120p (119.88 fps) and full AF performance. The EOS R5’s 4K HQ mode, for users seeking the highest 4K quality, allows them to achieve exceptional detail with8K recording fast sampling, built-in at shooting speeds up to 30p.
EOS R6: Ready for 4K
The EOS R6 incorporates the revolutionary technology of the EOS R system, just like the EOS R5. Its class-leading EOS R6 meets all the demands of all amateur and semi-professional users who take pictures of any type with its power and versatility. For example; sports and wildlife enthusiasts, 20 frames/sec 1 up to speed capacity, 6072 selectable AF points flexibility, it finds profound learning-based automatic percent of the eye and the animal is captured fast-moving action in a very comfortable way benefiting from the AF tracking mode.
The innovative EOS R6, which allows content creators to meet the ever-increasing demand for photo and video images, provides fast sampling from 5.1K to capture in 4K UHD resolution up to 59.94 fps. At the same time, users can shoot high-quality slow-motion using Full HD up to 119.88 fps with AF support.
Three new EOS accessories from Canon
The LP-E6NH is not only included with the EOS R5 and EOS R6 but also attracts attention with its compatibility and compatibility with all existing cameras using the LP-E6 series batteries. The LP-E6NH battery, which replaces the LP-E6N model with a 14% higher capacity and reaches a 2130 mAh level, allows users to shoot longer while remaining compatible with existing products and accessories.
BG-R10 battery handle
The BG-R10 is ideal for weddings, wildlife, and news shots, allowing for longer continuous shooting with EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras. The new battery handle allows machine bodies to be powered by two batteries (LP-E6 / N / NH). The battery handle also offers dual control for easier vertical shooting.
The battery handle-style Wi-Fi transmitter and 2 × 2 MIMO antenna WFT-R10, which are used for faster and wider range transmission compatible with EOS R5, are among the accessories introduced for the new devices. The WFT-R10 also features enhanced network processing that allows SFTP over Wi-Fi, as well as gigabyte speed through its Ethernet port.
