Rumors of a Canon EOS R5c and EOS R5s [CR1]

While we have had numerous mentions of a high-resolution EOS R camera coming down the pipeline, Canon Watch is reporting than Canon will also introduce a video focused EOS R camera, which will be different than the upcoming EOS C50 and EOS C70.

I’m calling the cameras ‘EOS R Video’ and ‘EOS R high-resolution’.

A direct quote of specifications:

  • EOS R Video: has the same sensor technology as the EOS R5 but with half the resolution
  • EOS R Video: records 4K/120P with no crop
  • EOS R Video: does 2.8K supersampling in super35 mode
  • Both have a newly developed heat sinks
  • EOS high-resolution: has “double-width resolution sensor of EOS R6“  (This would put the resolution at 80mp if I’m understanding that correctly.)
  • EOS High-resolution: does 12fps
  • Dual Pixel AF performance in low light better than EOS R5 and EOS R6.
  • EOS High-resolution: “high resolution monster being hybrid for quality and speed

While I know a high-resolution EOS R camera is in the pipeline, I’m not too sure about a video focused EOS R camera. We have both the EOS C50 and EOS C70 RF mount cinema cameras on the horizon, and from the outside, it looks like Canon wants to segment video cameras and still/hybrid cameras.

Stranger things have happened though.
