EOS R5: No compromise. Revolutionary imaging innovation.
For the first time, Canon has given the iconic EOS 5-Series name to the EOS R Mirrorless system with the EOS R5. The EOS R5 is an unprecedented leap forward in mirrorless technology and offers the highest resolution EOS cameraxxiii ever. The DIGIC X processor, CMOS sensor and RF lenses combine to advance all aspects of image quality to achieve a resolution up to 45 megapixels. Achieving up to 100% AF coverage xxiv, capable of 5,940 user selectable AF points and featuring an ISO range of 100-51,200, EOS R5 keeps subjects razor-sharp even in extreme low light conditions. Dual-card slots support a high-speed CFexpress and SD UHS II card, housed in a weather resistant magnesium body.
Professionals can capture stunning 8K 12-bit RAW video internally using the full width of the sensor for a truly cinematic result with continuous eye and face AF tracking for people and animals. The EOS R5 also sets new standards for videographers shooting in 4Kxxv. Capture 4K DCI (full frame) and 4K UHD at frame rates up to 120p (119.88fps) with 4:2:2 10-bit quality, enabling high resolution,
smooth slow-motion with full AF performance. Users seeking the very highest 4K quality can use the 4K HQ mode to reproduce incredible detail at frame rates up to 30pxxvi by internally oversampling 8K footage.
• 8K RAW internal video recording up to 29.97fps (non-cropped)
• 8K internal video recording up to 29.97fps (non-cropped) in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265) or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265)
• 4K internal recording up to 119.88fps (non-cropped) in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265) or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265)

The 20.1 megapixel CMOS sensor shares many technologies and performance seen with the EOS-1D X Mark III, providing 100-102,400 auto ISO range. This enables users to produce clean images in the toughest low light environments such as weddings and indoor events, providing additional flexibility and choice.
Enabling content creators to meet the increasing demand to produce both stunning still and moving image, the innovative EOS R6 can film in 4K UHD resolution at up to 59.94fps achieved through
oversampling from 5.1K. Output incredible slow-motion footage with AF support using Full HD at up to 119.88fps. During movie shooting, zebra display can be used as a guide to exposure adjustment, particularly useful in conditions that typically result in overexposed highlights. With the option to record internally in 8-bit H.264 or 10-bit YCbCr 4:2:2 H.265 and Canon Log, users can experience ultimate post-production flexibility.
The 0.5inch 3.69 million dot EVF working up to 120fps maximum refresh rate supports minimal lag ideal for photographing sports, offering a transparent and responsive view of shooting subjects.
