Major Canon R5 Firmware to Add New “IBIS HIGH Resolution”, Creates 400MP image
As you know a major Canon R5 firmware has been rumored for a while. We have some updates about the EOS R5 major firmware update. Here are the details.
A leaked screenshot from a cached Canon EU page indicates that the Canon R5 camera will get a new “IBIS HIGH Resolution” to create 400MP image. This feature will combine 9 shots to make a 400mp image. The IBIS High Resolution image will measure 24576 x 16384 pixels!
To keep the EOS R5 viable through 2023, Canon will release a major firmware update and we expect to see this new feature firmware update announced at NAB 2023 in April.
What is Pixel-Shift?
Pixel shift is a method in digital cameras for producing a super resolution image. The method works by taking several images, after each such capture moving (“shifting”) the sensor to a new position. In digital colour cameras that employ pixel shift, this avoids a major limitation inherent in using Bayer pattern for obtaining colour, and instead produces an image with increased colour resolution and, assuming a static subject or additional computational steps, an image free of colour moiré. Taking this idea further, sub-pixel shifting may increase the resolution of the final image beyond that suggested by the specified resolution of the image sensor.
According to latest rumors, Canon will release a major firmware update to keep the EOS R5 viable through 2023. We expect to see this new feature firmware update announced at NAB 2023 in April.
