The New Stuff
8K RAW Internal
The R5 C is kitted out with new shooting features that elevate this camera to the status of a Professional Video Camera. The R5 C can capture next-level 8K DCI RAW video at 30P (up to 60P with external power supply) internally to a CFexpress card. While in this mode, you can make full use of the R5 C’s Focus Tracking capabilities and it uses the entire width of the full-frame sensor for that cinematic look. Being able to shoot 8K RAW not only offers the highest level of image quality but also complete flexibility in post using Canon Cinema RAW Development software or other non-linear editing applications.
Up next: 4K
When 8K RAW is not needed, the R5 C can shoot in 4K DCI full-frame and 4K UHD at frame rates up to 120fps in 4:2:2/10-bit, with both audio and autofocus. This results in super-smooth and incredibly high-quality slow-motion video capture that is suitable for any professional project.
Adding to this image quality, the R5 C oversamples its 45-megapixel sensor which in turn, increases sharpness and colour fidelity, and lowers noise.
These new video features require power. Power generates heat. And this is where other cameras suffer without Canon’s intelligent design and engineering. The R5 C features a redesigned version of the original internal cooling system featured on the R5 that is engineered to enable the heat that’s built up in intensive video capture to be expelled via a built-in fan and exhaust at the rear of the camera. This allows you to record 8K footage for long periods without failure.
A Powerhouse Sensor
The EOS R5 C uses an incredible 45 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that’s coupled with Canon’s powerful DIGIC X image processing engine. This potent combination of photographic engineering and design enables a level of image quality and performance that was unheard of until recent times. It’s this sensor that enables image capture with incredible detail, a wide ISO range, low noise and wide dynamic range, as well as offering burst speeds up to 20fps. And, it features Automatic Exposure Bracketing and an Interval Timer for timelapse.
Fast, Accurate and Reliable
Fast, accurate and reliable and all words synonymous with Canon’s ground-breaking Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. This system offers Eye AF and EOS iTR AF X for precise and reliable face/head/eye tracking, even if your subject turns away from the camera. The speed of this combined with the electronic shutter's 20fps makes for a formidable pair, accurately capturing fast-moving subjects with unbelievable detail.
So, there’s a lot to go over here. This camera is built for professional use and with that, it’s kitted out with a range of features that allow for efficiency and precision. To begin with, the R5 C is an impressively compact and lightweight Cinema EOS camera, so much so that it’s all the more impressive what this camera can produce. It features a high-resolution OLED viewfinder, bright articulating 3.2-inch LCD monitor, and 13 user-assignable buttons.
The R5 C is equipped with the renowned RF mount that offers a wide range of premium lenses and of course, with the use of Canon’s Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, you have 100’s of lenses at your disposal. As we mentioned before, there’s also that redesigned active cooling system that enables long-duration recording. And as with the original R5, the R5 C is equipped with an effective Digital Image Stablisation system.
Again, this camera is designed for professional use. It features a wide range of connectivity options including Wi-Fi4, Bluetooth and the Multi-Function Accessory Shoe. There’s dedicated terminals for timecode, 3.5mm mic, headphones, micro-HDMI, flash sync and USB-C. And of course, Canon offers an extensive range of photo and video software application support such as image.canon, Content Transfer Mobile, Browser Remote etc.
