Full frame creativity arrives with EOS R5 and EOS R6 from Canon

July 13, 2020

New mirrorless cameras announced today.

Canon has officially unveiled two new mirrorless cameras in the form of the EOS R5 and the EOS R6 which are additions to the EOS R System built on the future-proof RF Mount. The EOS R5 is able to deliver 45-megapixel photos at up to 20fps and is the first mirrorless camera to record 8K RAW up to 29.97fps and 4K at 120fps. The EOS R6 on the other hand features 20.1-megapixel stills at 20fos along with the ability to shoot 4K 60fps/1080p 120fps video.

“The launch of the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 marks an exciting moment for us. This latest addition to the EOSR system is an innovation that will redefine the future of storytelling and is designed to meet the growing demands of storytellers around the Middle East region. At Canon, consumers are our core, and our vision, with this launch, is to help Canon users create compelling visual stories and long-lasting vivid memories,” said Venkatasubramanian Hariharan, Business Unit Director B2C at Canon Middle East.

A new CMOS technology that is combined with high-performance RF lenses enables users to capture incredible details along with the high-speed continuous shooting of up to 12fps. Both cameras also utilize a 5-axis in-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) that works with the IS system of RF lenses. This means that the lenses and the sensor will work together to correct pitch and yaw to offer intelligent stabilization.

Both the EOS R5 and the EOS R6 utilizes a DIGIC X processor that supports the world’s fastest AF that focuses in as little as 0.05 seconds. Along with that, there is the iTR AF X AF that was programmed using AI so that it can accurately identify eyes and faces when focusing. 

The two cameras also support built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (5GHz for the EOS R5 and 2.4GHz for the EOS R6) for easy connection to any smartphone. This means that you can easily transfer images taken from the camera without the need for a computer. This wireless connection also means that you can control the camera straight from your smartphone.
