If you are photographing animals* such as dogs, cats and birds you also get eye, face and whole body detect.
*For some subjects, animal detection is not available, and in other cases subjects other than dogs, cats or birds may be detected as animals.
EOS R5 gives you greater flexibility in post-processing with its 8K video recording capabilities, a first for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The Canon EOS R5 is able to record 8K video in multiple codec flavours including RAW from its full-frame sensor without cropping the sensor so your full-frame wide-angle lenses stay wide for maximum impact. Even more impressive is Canon's renowned Dual Pixel AF which is available in all video recording modes on the EOS R5. Dual Pixel AF is one of the best video autofocus systems out there and a proven life-saver for any solo content creator using Canon cameras.
One of the many benefits of 8K video recording is that you get around four times the detail of 4K video and the ability to export around 33 megapixels still frames out of video footage which opens up for new creative possibilities. If you shoot video and like to have the ability to zoom in while editing you are now no longer limited to only producing for HD delivery as you can zoom up to 4x without a noticeable quality loss! 8k oversampling also enables much higher-quality 4k movie recording resulting in sharper UHD videos from the EOS R5.
Canon EOS R5's recording limit for 8K videos (RAW. DCI, UHD) is restricted to a maximum recording time of around 20 minutes at room temperature due to internal camera temperature limitations. Canon has measured this when setting crop to [Off] and up to 29.97 fps / 25 fps.Canon EOS R5 Key Video Specs
Canon's most advanced autofocus system is available in all 8K recording modes on the EOS R5 for advanced tracking and subject recognition. As getting sharp focus is critical for 8K and 4K video, Canon has made sure that even Eye Detect autofocus is available for 8K video recording.
With the Canon EOS R5 you can capture up to 8K 30P RAW videos internally at a bit depth of 12-bit for maximum post-processing flexibility.
Experience smooth cinematic slow motion 4k footage, an experience like no other thanks to Dual Pixel Autofocus keeping your slow-mo action in focus.
HDR PQ recording enables easy HDR video capture for minimal post-processing before delivery while the inclusion of Canon LOG enables you to easily match the EOS R5 with any of Canon EOS Cinema range cameras.
Following in the footsteps of the EOS 5 series, the EOS R5 is constructed from a magnesium-alloy body with strategic weather-sealing at selected locations to ensure high operability and reliability. The body features three control dials; a main dial and two quick control dials for fast and ergonomic use. Canon has listened to feedback from users and AF points can now be selected with a traditional joystick multi-controller within easy reach of a user's thumb.
*Battery compartment, card slot cover, and other parts that can be opened must be securely closed in order to maintain dust- and water-resistance.
The CFexpress card supports high-speed transfer, allowing the camera to perform continuous shooting of 45-megapixel still images, at up to 20 fps, as well as internal recording of 8K RAW movies.
Canon has put a responsive electronic viewfinder (EVF) with 5.76 Megapixels resolution in the EOS R5 which promises smooth performance when switching between using the monitor and the EVF while also being great for burst shooting. The viewfinder supports brightness, colour tone and fine-tuning of colour tone adjustments as well as having optimised EVF optics.
The inclusion of a fully-articulated Vari-angle LCD monitor makes it easier to shoot from high and low angles or shoot in portrait orientation. An articulated screen like this is a must for any video content creator looking to vlog with the Canon EOS R5 or any creator working alone creating presentation pieces in front of camera.
A top-mounted dot matrix LCD display allows you to turn off the main monitor to save power and still be able to check various settings and shooting mode on this display with a quick glance at the top of the camera.
With the EOS R5 Canon also introduced a new battery the LP-E6NH for longer battery life with around 14% increased battery life. It also keeps backwards compatibility with older LP-E6 style batteries and accessories.
Additionally, the EOS R5 also supports an optional BG-R10 Battery Grip for even longer battery life and improved comfort when shooting for an extended time, in portrait orientation, or with longer telephoto lenses.
The Canon EOS R5 supports IEEE802.11ac Wi-Fi standard and 5GHz* wireless LAN it is also compatible with image.canon and fully automatic image data transfer to the cloud.
