The long-rumored Cano EOS R5c is reportedly still expected to be announced in the first quarter of 2022. Original rumors placed an announcement for January 2022, but I can't confirm that will be the case.
The source did say certain retailers are being told to expect the camera to be announced in Q1 of 2022 with availability coming soon thereafter, but likely in limited quantities.
Pricing is still unknown obviously, but I have been told that it will cost “significantly less” than the Canon Cinema EOS C70, which is currently priced at $5499 USD.
Canon EOS R5C Information
- 45mp full-frame sensor (Same as the EOS R5)
- DIGIC X
- 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.
