The Canon EOS R5 is probably the most anticipated camera on earth at the moment, but it has only been teased by Canon with a development announcement. We do expect the Canon EOS R5 to be officially announced at some point in the next month or so.
Here are the rumoured specifications for the Canon EOS R5.
Below is a gallery of new images of the Canon EOS R5 body courtesy of dc.watch.
BTW: Are there news about the 1dx mkIII? Need the camera in April and I am worried about this corona virus thing....
I really like they went for the "Dsrl" design and not the uncomfortable square metal design that is now so popular.
Makes me crazy the lack of buttons for exchange ISO, Drive, White balance, flash...makes it so difficult, I love the R but I can't go fast between the configuration as I need only with the button M-fn.
A dedicated Mode dial on the left shoulder would be a better option in my opinion. Instead of this silly waste of a space they implemented with the on/off dial. I think the perfect place for the on/off dial is around the shutter. And a third push to activate the light.
But overall it looks super close to perfect :)
If the rumoured specs are true and there is no major fuckup like missing DPAF in 4k or crazy rolling shutter like on the 5D, than this is in my opinion the PERFECT camera. I dont see ANYTHING missing or wrong. Its incredible versatile and covers ANY kind of photography - from event, to landscape, to products and even high end sports. I think pretty much any price would be okay, even up to 6k like the 1D. Overall it looks even more powerfull than the 1D in my opinion (which became more and more a SUPER specialized tool). With the insane speed, the 5D could even replace the 1D for most sports photographers (unless you truely need the LAN port. Though this could be replaced with USB-C to LAN adapters - at least theoreticaly).
With the giant EF Lense selection and the Adapter with internal ND Filter its a VERY promising camera, even for video :)
Maybe there is some hotkey option to put the lock feature on a custom key...
Where is my EOS R7: R5 with a crop sensor.... come on Canon :)
