The Canon EOS R5 has given video directors and YouTubers a welcome boost by teasing a few more of its official specs – and the new announcements confirm that the R5 will break new ground for mirrorless cameras.
Last month, Canon batted away suggestions that the EOS R5’s video powers would be compromised in a similar way to previous models like the EOS R, by confirming that it will shoot 8K video internally at 30fps using the full width of its sensor.
And now Canon has followed that up with some even bigger video spec announcements. One of the most interesting is that the EOS R5 will be able to shoot 4K video at up to 120fps, making it a potentially great option for shooting high-quality slo-mo footage. That mode has only previously been available on professional Cinema EOS cameras like the C200.
Even better, Canon has confirmed that when shooting video on the EOS R5 “Dual Pixel AF is available in all video modes at all resolutions and frame rates”. That’s pretty incredible, given the Canon 1DX Mark III can’t even manage that – that pro DSLR doesn’t offer Dual Pixel AF when shooting in either Raw or 60p modes.
