Canon R5 ‘in development’

If the CanonRumors ‘scoop’, also reported on extensively by other websites, is completely true, Canon will announce the Canon EOS R5 on or around February 13, for release mid-year.

Canon R5
This is a Camera Rumors rumour and this is the pic from Canon Rumors which accompanies it.

If the rumoured R5 turns out to be a real thing, it indicates Canon has upped the ante in the full-frame mirrorless stakes, with a camera boasting a 45 megapixel sensor, in-camera image stabilisation – the first in the Canon R series to have IBIS – and perhaps more fancifully, some form of 8K/30 fps video.

If it’s partially true, some of the above and some of the specs below might be facts or lily-gilding. It’s a slow news week, so for what it’s worth, here’s Canon Rumors list of specs to date:
– 45mp full-frame CMOS sensor;
– IBIS: 5 stops with IBIS alone, 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilisation. Really?
– 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic shutter;
– Scroll wheel added to the back, no touch bar;
– Liveview/Movie toggle like EOS DSLRs;
– Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6;
– 8K@30fps; 4K@120fps; 4K@60fps;
– Built-in 5GHz WiFi;

But wait, there’s more! Canon Rumors followed up the R5 rumour with an R6 rumour! How incredible. This is a camera which might be announced in May. It might also have a 20-meg full frame CMOS sensor and also include IBIS. Who knows if Camera Rumors is on the money or just talking through their Rs?

    Canon press release 13/02/10 – “Our new full frame mirrorless camera will have 45mp, IBIS, 12/20fps and 8k 30fps”
    Sony press release 14/02/20 – “Hold my beer…”

    Are Canon finally listening to their customers? Or have their customers already lost faith and moved over to Sony? This camera is what the R should have been all along – something to genuinely take on Sony’s A7 series with one truly novel feature (the 8k 30fps is obviously VERY tempting) – not the nervous toe in the water it turned out to be.
    Of course EF system users are still being given the short end of the stick and are forced to buy new glass (or adapt existing) – they really should be bringing out an EF body with similar specs – that might be enough for them to remain in the top spot for a while.
