The Canon EOS R5c has been rumored for quite some time now, and I expect to see it sometime in 2022. Information about the EOS R5c has been lacking for the last little while, but things are starting to heat up.
Canon EOS R5C Information

Canon Log 3
Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
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.

The Canon EOS R5c was...

Its impossible to squize an ND into mirrorless compact ff body. And Canon already has C70 )
C70 is super 35 sensor though.

Just giving an R5 active cooling won't make the already excellent R5 a much better video camera.

Canon really needs to stop messing about and give us all what we really want rather than playing around pimping out stills cameras.

A compact RF cine camera, FF sensor with ND, full size HDMI, time code and SDI outputs and it would sell by the boat load. The modularity of C300/C500's are great and their size with large lenses is a big plus but we don't all need that or shoot for TV where stuff like that matters.

And you know how?

I don’t know all the technical junk involved with this working, but isn’t the sensor regardless of size still the same distance from the lens?

I mean the R5 series is a focus on Hybrid work (photo first). Why wouldn’t the R5c be that, but with more focus on video performance?

Make a compact cinema ff camera like you said, but don’t remove photo capabilities. Us Hybrid shooters need that. R5 is only hindered on video performance with heat (especially hot days) and file sizes imo. Fix that, and is hybrid shooters are golden.

Sounds like the R1 will be the better of both worlds and might skip out on the R5c all together.

R5s High Resolution Shooters might have to wait another Seven Years for their Camera

Perhaps it's Time to check out the
Fuji GFX System

Canon appears to be not interested in serving the High Resolution Photography Market anymore

Or Perhaps Sony will take up the cause
With their New 102 Megapixel Full Frame Sensor

The trouble with photo style hybrid video cameras is how difficult they are to rig.

There is no way it will have anything more than 3.5mm microphone inputs and certainly no phantom power. Standard camera batteries just don't last very long and can only power the camera so that means adding more stuff to get it to work as a decent video camers. Adding more stuff without it being a box style camera or a much bigger camera (like C70) then makes it a much worse stills camera IMO.
