In addition to the EOS C300 Mark III, Canon shared additional specifications of the upcoming Canon EOS R5. The full frame mirrorless camera is currently in development but with the newly released information we now know more details on the 8K video recording capability, IBIS and more.
We already know that Canon EOS R5 will be the 5D series Equivalent for Mirrorless. The new EOS R5 will be able to record 8K video at 30p with no crop and full-width 4K at up to 120p with 10-bit 4:2:2 recording and full AF in all modes.
The 8K footage comes from the whole width of the sensor, as does its DCI 4K output, which could imply the use of the wider-screen 8192 x 4320 pixel version of 8K (a 1.90:1 ratio ration than 16:9). 4K specs extend up to internal 120p capture and can be recorded internally or output over HDMI. The camera will have dual card slots: one for CFexpress cards and one UHS-II SD slot.
