  • they are very very late for the party. No more drinks, no more food. All pretty girls found already a guy.

  • Sounds to good to be true, but even if by some miracle we will see something like this announced from Canon, I bet it won't be cheap and it will have a lot of * (a la cripple hammer) in the specs.

  • New cameras can be tragedy for Canon. As, as far as rumors go, they aim at the highest profits in the industry, more than Panasonic (who holds record among mainstream manufacturers of FF cameras now).

    Although we have launched two full-frame mirrorless cameras as well as ten dedicated lenses, our lineup is still insufficient. In order to recover from our late entry into the mirrorless camera market, we have plans to launch a model that incorporates a newly developed image sensor and image-processing engine that offer even more advanced features. We will work to raise our presence in the mirrorless camera category, leveraging large trade exhibitions around the world. Even amid increasing competition, we will expand sales of higher-end models driven by new products and aim for top market share even in the mirrorless camera market. At the same time, we will expand our lineup of dedicated lenses launching several innovative ones that take advantage of the new mount that allows greater flexibility when designing lenses. We will accelerate sales by responding to user need to capture various images, expanding options by combining camera bodies and lenses

    A technological war machine, the EOS R5 is the first hybrid camera announced with an 8K video mode. To this first is added the stabilization of the sensor (a first for Canon) or a burst at 20 frames per second.

    Canon seems to have understood that these EOS R and EOS RP were not really technologically advanced. As a result of which he takes out of his hat a development announcement that makes reading fun. The EOS R5, which should arrive later this year, will thus be the first “serious” case of the RF mount. The few elements that Canon has agreed to share has enough to make you salivate.

    In the front row, there is the video, 8K! A world-first in the world of consumer cameras. An unprecedented skill that would allow Canon to take back the king of video, lost during the transition to 4K for the benefit of Panasonic and other Sony.

    Canon does not advertise any frame rate, compression (codec), etc. You will have to wait for the launch announcement to find out more.

    The other big news is the arrival of mechanical stabilization of the sensor, a first for Canon. This lack of stabilization is partly responsible for the poor ratings we have given to the EOS R and EOS RP.

    According to some information leaks, mechanical stabilization alone would gain up to five speeds. Coupled with the optical and electronic stabilizations included in certain optics, this mechanical stabilization could allow gaining up to eight speeds.

    Then Canon announces an impressive burst of 20 frames per second in electronic shutter, as with the Sony A9, and a burst at 12 frames per second in mechanical shutter, like sports cameras from Canon and Nikon (1DX Mark II or D5) .

    Leading performance that we hope followed by level tracking algorithms. Let’s also hope that the buffer is generous so that the “sport” potential is not restricted.

    Finally, the EOS R5 will have two memory card slots, which will change from the first models limited to a single card – sometimes even placed in the battery compartment, as with the EOS RP.

    The Next Generation: Canon Announces The Development Of The Company’s Most Advanced Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Ever – The EOS R5

    The Company will Also Develop Seven RF Lenses and Two RF Lens Extenders in 2020

    MELVILLE, NY, February 12, 2020 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company, Canon Inc., is developing the highly anticipated Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera. The camera will feature a newly designed CMOS sensor and new image processor, along with new state-of-the-art optical technologies the company has been able to cultivate through its long history of groundbreaking camera and digital imaging solutions development. In addition, Canon plans to release seven RF lenses and two RF lens extenders that are currently in development. These new photography tools will help to continue to strengthen the EOS R system and cement the RF mount as an industry leader.

    “Today’s announcement comes as a direct result of the tireless effort of Canon engineers who have been tasked with developing the next generation of Canon EOS R camera and RF lenses to help elevate the popular system that was announced in 2018,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “In developing the new camera, Canon listened to extensive user-feedback from a variety of photographers. The outcome is a camera and lenses that will delight a variety of shooters and further helps to demonstrate Canon’s commitment to full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses.”

    The EOS R System was initially developed to provide engineers with the ability to design lenses that were thought to be impossible to create previously. The wide lens mount diameter, shorter back focus, and high-speed system for transmitting data between camera and lens have resulted in an imaging system that delivers higher image quality and greater ease-of-use than ever before.

    The new full-frame mirrorless camera currently under development will fully leverage the advantages of the EOS R System, helping to produce a camera that features high-speed continuous shooting and 8K video recording. Furthermore, the camera will provide photographers with more efficient workflows thanks to improved transmission functionality, operability and reliability. These enhancements, along with many others, will help to further elevate and solidify the EOS Series concept of “Speed, Comfort and High-Image-Quality.”

    Canon’s EOS R5, the first of the next generation of full-frame mirrorless cameras planned for EOS R System, will include a newly developed CMOS sensor. The new sensor will enable enhanced features such as high-speed continuous shooting up to approximately 20 frames-per-second (FPS) when using the silent shutter and up to approximately 12 FPS when using the mechanical shutter – A feature professional sports and wildlife photographers will find to be extremely impactful on their ability to capture fast-moving subjects. From a video perspective, the camera’s 8K video capture capability will prepare videographers for the future of movie-making- capturing 8K footage today allows for even higher-quality 4K productions in addition to the ability to extract high-resolution still images from the video footage. The EOS R5 will be the first Canon camera equipped with IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) and when used in conjunction with the extremely effective in-lens stabilization (IS), will allow photographers to handhold the camera in light levels not previously imagined. Additionally, the camera will also feature dual-card slots and will support the automatic transfer of image files from the device to the new cloud platform.

    Alongside the EOS R5, Canon is also developing seven RF lenses and two RF lens extenders scheduled for release during 2020, including the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x.

    This and this

    The new sensor will enable enhanced features such as high-speed continuous shooting up to approximately 20 frames-per-second (FPS) when using the silent shutter

    are quite contradicting things.

    Or we have 8K 20fps video ala famous Fujifilm 4K.

  • Canon EOS R5 will begin shipping prior to the summer Olympic games in Tokyo, which begin on July 24, 2020.

    Probability of Tokyo games not be postponed is around 10-15%. So, R5 can be also significantly delayed, up to November.

    Canon INC has today released further development specifications for its recently announced Canon EOS R5, the next-generation full-frame interchangeable lens camera in the company's EOS R System. These additional details come exactly one month since Canon released the development announcement of the EOS R5 and shut down speculation that some of its revolutionary specifications are 'a fantasy'.

    Signalling a new phase of Canon 5-Series imaging and a revolution in the mirrorless full camera category, Canon's EOS R5 will offer every photographer -- not just professionals -- access to high-quality imaging, cutting-edge 8K movie recording, new approaches to in-body image stabilisation, and revolutionary subject detection and tracking performance features.

    New possibilities for movie performance

    Unleashing new possibilities, Canon Inc. confirms the EOS R5's video capabilities will exceed that of competing cameras on the market. With its ability to internally record 8K using the full width of the sensor at up to 30p, the latest Canon EOS R camera is set to redefine mirrorless with its market-leading features. In addition, in all 8K modes the EOS R5 will support Canon's renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

    A beast for subject detection and tracking performance for animals and people

    Canon Inc. also confirms the EOS R5 supports advanced animal AF -- recognising dogs, cats and birds, relying not only on the eyes of the animal but also the face and body for situations when the eyes are not visible.

    Jason McLean, Director -- Consumer Imaging & Services, Canon Australia, said:

    "Our EOS 5-Series was developed fifteen years ago to make full-frame cameras accessible to consumers, not just professional shooters. Today, that purpose remains steadfast as we continue achieving the 'impossible' to deliver the hybrid needs of content creators who are demanding uncompromised performance to generate more still and motion visual content than ever before."

    "With its game changing 8K movie capabilities, new approaches to image stabilisation, revolutionary subject detection, and compatibility with Canon's full suite of EF^2^ and RF lenses, the EOS R5 represents a category revolution as opposed to product evolution in the interchangeable-lens camera market."

    The EOS R5 specifications previously confirmed by Canon include:

    • The EOS R5 offers a step-change in performance with an incredible 12fps using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter offering 20fps
    • The EOS R5 takes Canon's cutting-edge image stabilisation technology to the next level, by including a newly Canon-developed, in-camera image stabilisation system -- which works in combination with the lens stabilisation system
    • With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R5 supports automatic transfer of image files from the device to the cloud platform^3^
    • The highly anticipated EOS R5 will feature dual card slots
    • Upon launch, the Canon EOS R5 will also be supported by Canon Australia's 5-year warranty when purchased from an authorised local dealer^4^.

  • We are running at less than 1/4 of Canon’s manufacturing capacity due to supply chain issues from the Coronavirus.

    Whole camera can be new and brave PR move by Canon. As top managers know that they could shift it safety to Q4 2020 or even early 2021.
