It looks like one of the last hurdles to production has been passed, as the Canon EOS R5 has received Bluetooth certification.
Nokishita breaks down the certification and code names:
Canon “DS126831 / 36/37/38/39/40” also passed Bluetooth certification. Probably all “EOS R5” (36 is North American version [1-11,36-64,149-165ch], 38 is Taiwan etc. version [1-11,36-165ch], 39 is Chinese version [1-13,36-64,149] -165ch]. There should be a Japanese version [1-13,36-140ch] and a 1-13,36-165ch compatible version)
Things are obviously all over the place at the moment, but the last thing I was told is that the EOS R5 would still begin shipping in July. I just don’t know when the official announcement date will be.
Saving up for the Canon EOS R5 already?
Adorama is looking for Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and Canon EOS R camera bodies, and they’ll pay $1200 and $1000 respectively for them (condition dependent). It’s a super simple process to get a quote, check it out at Adorama.
