Canon Expands EOS R Line with EOS R5 and R6

Canon Expands EOS R Line with EOS R5 and R6

Staying committed to expanding the EOS R system, Canon adds two new models with the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

The EOS R5 is the EOS 5D equivalent of Canon’s full-frame mirrorless line. Like its DSLR sibling, it comes with two card slots—CFExpress and SDfor flexible storage options. New to the EOS R5 is a 45-megapixel CMOS sensor that is paired with a DIGIC X processor. Aside from a native ISO range of 100-51,200, the EOS R5 can shoot uncropped 8K RAW video at 29,97FPS in 4:2:2 10-bit, along with uncropped 4K DCI at 59.94 fps. Canon claims that the EOS R5 can shoot 8K video for up to 20 minutes.

The EOS R5 also has in-body image stabilization that can do up to 8 stops when paired with lenses with OIS. The EOS R5 has a pro-grade shutter that can do up to 12FPS in mechanical mode and 20FPS in electronic mode. All of those features also benefit the improved Dual Pixel AF system, which Canon claims almost 100 percent of the AF area and 1,053 zones, along with eye-tracking for dogs, cats, birds, and humans.

The viewfinder gets a 120hz refresh rate and 5.76-million dot resolution, along with a 3.2-inch 2.1-million dot vari-angle touchscreen.

If you do not need 8K video recording, Canon also has the EOS R6. This one uses the same 20,1-megapixel sensor found on the EOS 1DX Mark III, letting it record video at 4K60 or 1080p120. The viewfinder resolution is the same, though you get a smaller 3-inch, 1.62 million dot touchscreen display, and no top LCD. Instead of a CFExpress and SD card slots, the EOS R6 settles for dual SD Card slots.

Both cameras are powered by a new LP-E6NH battery and can be outfitted with an optional BG-R10 battery grip.

The EOS R5 is priced at $3899(~Php 192.8k) for the body only and $4999(~Php 247.2k) with the RF 24-105mm F/4L lens. On the other hand, the EOS R6 is priced at $2499(~123.6k) for the body $3599(~Php 177.9k) with the RF 24-105mm F/4L lens and $2899(~Php 143.3k) with the RF 24-105 F/4-7.1 lens.
