Canon DSLR Rumors

A Canon camera has shown up for certification

A camera, likely the EOS R5 has shown up for certification according to Nokishita.

The certification shows a new battery as we reported previously, it’ll be the LP-E6NH with a voltage of 7.2v and 2130mAh. Perhaps the “H” means “high-capacity”.

The certification also says the camera is compatible with the Speedlite 600EX-RT, does that mean the EOS R5 will have a wireless trigger? We haven’t heard that suggestion previously.

The camera is also compatible with the Canon RS-60E3.

Higher capacity in the same form factor is logical to me. By comparison Sony's A7/A9 batteries have 2280mah vs 1865 in the LP-E6N despite similar physical size, so it would seem there is room for denser energy storage.

"does that mean the EOS R5 will have a wireless trigger?"

Looking at photos of the camera from the Vegas show, it looks like the area under the hotshoe is a separate piece from the rest of the body. I assumed this camera doesn't have a pop-up flash. Maybe there's a pop-up flash trigger?

No, that’s the ”window” for the radio antennas (WLAN and GPS). Although I don’t see why there couldn’t be a radio trigger for RT flashes as well.

The RS80-N3 is older, from film days. The RS60-E3 was developed for a less bulky plug, and it can rotate.
The E3 very simple remote jack is much older than the better N3 jack. Usually the amateur Canon cameras have the E3 and the pro cameras the N3. The port on the front of the R5 looks exactly like the N3 of the EOS 5D-IV. Maybe this certification is for another simpler camera? The R6?

The port on front is for sure PC sync. Same asi on EOS R (on battery grip - in front). R5 will be using E3 as EOS R (mk I). I guess it will be on same place - left side, left top corner. PC sync is usually only for "pro" cameras in new day and age.

Now a 200-600 in addition to the announced 100-500 will make Sony users cry :D *
Oh and a few DO lenses...

* Or at least it will make Canon users smile :D
I don’t want to make anyone cry. We need to get past this Chevy v. Ford pettiness. Sony, Nikon, Canon, Fuji... all make fine cameras and the others don’t need to fail for Canon to succeed. Me? Canon because of the ergonomics and lens quality. 5D IV, 6D II, RP, M5. But I could live with any of the others if necessary and I doubt my photos would suffer.

Of course hence the smiles! I thought they were self-explanatory!

The PC Sync is on the side of the camera, seen here with the flash bolt icon:

The front is definitely the remote port, whichever type it is, much like on the 5D Mark IV.

I reckon the EOS R6 and later on the 5D Mark V will also use the same battery as well.

mAh figures are not comparable if you don’t know the voltages. mWh is what matters.
True.
BUT: Voltages are the same i.e. 7.2V for the LP-E6N (EOS R) and this one.
That means the increase in energy is proportional i.e. 2130/1865 -> 14% more energy.
But what we still dont know: Will this lead to a higher CIPA rating regarding number of photos that can be taken with a charge? I think: Unlikely, because the power consumption of the R5 might be quite higher given new features like IBIS etc.
