The long-rumored Canon EOS R5c is going to be announced in mid-January I have been told. It's safe to say that the camera will be announced sometime between January 11, 2022, and January 18, 2022.
Retail availability will begin 6-8 weeks after the announcement. I'm beating a dead horse here, but the chip shortage will still be playing a role in stock levels.
Canon EOS R5C Information
- 45mp full-frame sensor (Same as the EOS R5)
- DIGIC X
- Canon Log 3
- Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
- No Internal NDs
- Unlimited 8K30P recording in Cinema RAW Light. XF-AVC and MP4
- Timecode in/out
- The same multipurpose hot shoe as the EOS R3. Which will work with accessories such as the Tascam XLR module.
- Active cooling
- 3/8″ or 1/4″ mounting point on the EVF for a top handle that won’t interfere with the hot shoe.
- Full-size HDMI Port
- The LCD has been moved further back to accommodate the cooling fan. So this likely means that it won’t recess into the body like the Canon EOS R5.
