Canon EOS R5


  • a long awaited full frame mirrorless camera from Canon which will compete against the Sony a7R IV
  • this is Canon's 1st camera ever (along with the Canon EOS R6 released at the same time) which has ALL the major features that I care about in a camera:
    • relatively light
    • excellent weathersealing
    • sensor-shift image stabilisation
    • minimal rolling shutter with usable video and electronic fast burst modes of 20fps with C-AF
    • accurate and reliable eye tracking AF covering most of the frame
    • rear swivel touch screen

    • excellent ergonomics
    • plus they have added a few nice extras which are expected in 2020:
      • USB-C charging
      • high resolution EVF albeit at the expense of battery life and price
      • Bluetooth, WiFi
      • animal eye AF tracking
