Thanks for this. I was wondering if it would be possible to determine the likely resolution for stills from the video resolution. Now I have the answer. And, honestly, it makes perfect sense for the next generation of 5 Series sensors. This would also give the camera about 17 mp in crop mode if I'm doing the math right.
Can't wait to buy the R5. My money is sitting in my bank account not doing anything as of late.Let's review. The R5 knocks it out of the park for all things video. So yes, the R6 will be the video body. /s
Seriously, It won't be, it will be the 6D equivalent.They have pretty much made it crystal clear they are following the dslr nomenclature. It will also be less expensive and what more people might buy. Unless of course, a lot of those people don't mind debt. I didn't say you, or you or you...I know everyone here is fabulously wealthy, will buy 3 R5's to complement their stable of 1DXlll bodies.
Likewise! As the owner of a 1DC (which I use 99+% for stills), I have all the video capabilities I need for at least the forseeable future.To be fair, the 1DC was a DSLR that was video-centric.
Agreed, though, that the R5 and R6 segmentation is not about one being video-centric and the other stills-centric. As SLClick and others have said, the monikers communicate a similar segmentation and positioning as the EF-mounted 5D and 6D, respectively.
Price-wise, I've expected the R5 to be consistent with 5D pricing at $3,299-$3,499. The mind-blowing specs, though, have me wondering if they'll push it to $3,699 or even a little higher like they did the 5DS(R). I see $3,999 as a hard ceiling for the 5 series and would be surprised if the R5 even got close to it. Given the well-established positioning of the 5 series, along with the current global economic landscape, I'm still feeling confident it will be in the mid-$3K range (USD).
I know everyone is drooling over the video specs, but on the stills side, the R5 has me drooling, too:
> Articulating Screen
> At least 5DIV, or better, ISO and DR performance
The announcement can't come soon enough for this stills shooter!
It is laid out pure and simple, apart from having EF-mount, a mirror and an OVF, it won't be too much different from this camera, same sensor, same processor, same CFExpress UHS-II SD dual card slots setup (it probably won't shoot 12fps with mechanical shutter, but it will do 20fps electronic shutter).Now, when will the 5D V rumors start?
I can't see this being a 20mpx sensor 6D series camera because unfortunately most people don't think like you do.I don't give a rats ass if I go from 22 mp on my 5D3 to 20 on something new if it gives me more of, well, everything except megapixels. Not getting hung up on the numbers here (stills guy going off!)
The extreme sides would be vignetted, but not any more than corners are with current sensors. They’d still be inside the image circle. Lenses like the RF 24–240mm are an exception, not the rule, and even that one would not behave too badly because its vignetting is due to barrel distortion which primarily affects corners.Remains the question what lenses you would need to get exposure to the extreme left and right ...
It is sort of the reverse of people being bothered because they think Canon is crippling their cameras by leaving out stuff they want. Now they think Canon is screwing them by forcing them to pay more by putting stuff in a camera they don’t want.I mean really. Can't it be a great video camera and a bad-ass stills camera too? Why do some think they are mutually exclusive?
I mean, why can't Canon just make a camera that has exactly the feature set that I want?!It is sort of the reverse of people being bothered because they think Canon is crippling their cameras by leaving out stuff they want.

I'm not sure why you would feel that way. it's going to be an insane stills machine from what we already know.Quite a few stills shooters feeling neglected right now (myself among them) with all the video spec excitement at least until the R5 price is announced.
It's the exact opposite to what you think. Regular Canon modus operandi is that they don't tell us anything about incoming models until the release is actually imminent. With the R5 they've been the opposite of secretive.Why all the secrecy from Canon on EOS R5 ? Maybe they haven't finished the specs yet ? Seems rather odd and annoying to Canon users
True!I'm not sure why you would feel that way. it's going to be an insane stills machine from what we already know.
- 12FPS mech / 20 fps electronic - all with AF
- AF includes human, dog,cat and BIRD (body, head and eye)AF
- dual card slots (CFE, UHSII) - ie: fast buffer clearing.
- IBIS with IBIS+IS offering up to 8 stops of stabilization that also includes EF lenses.
- 1DX Mark III (this sensor generation) is VERY good in terms of noise and DR.
- AF Joystick control ie: 5D IV style.
- Articulating screen (no 5D / 7D class body hand one before)
APS-C size is around 17.5MP - which means this is nearly a 7D packaged inside it, well, a 7D on steroids.
You feel neglected with that?!
What we don't know . is this going to put the hammer to DR once and for all? will Canon do dual ISO like on the C300 III? curious about that. Even without it, this is a crazy good stills camera.
of course, Canon leading up to NAB was going to talk about the video - it's NAB - it would be VERY weird if Canon talked about the stills performance.
Yes. So you would have an 8208 x 5472 (plus masked and "edge" pixels needed to be able to demosaic to 8208 x 5472) sensor using 8192 x 4337 pixels for 8K DCI video. No one is going to consider only using 99.81% of the width of the sensor as "cropped" video.Video tends to follow two ratio: 16:9 for UHD and 17:9 for DCI #K
