EOS R5 C Full-frame, 8K Cinema EOS System Camera
Compact and lightweight, the EOS R5 C is a true hybrid camera, boasting many of the video formats and features from the Cinema EOS lineup as well as many of the still-imaging capabilities of the EOS R5 camera in a beautifully designed body.

The EOS R5 C is a complete package that offers filmmakers, multimedia journalists, and advanced amateurs a cost-effective 8K, 4K, and FHD video camera to help unlock their creative potential.

===============================================

ziggy note:

Yes, this is a "cinema camera" in every sense of the phrase. It is the "long-format" version of the EOS R5 Mirrorless camera. It's also a competitor for the:

  • Sony Alpha 1 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • Nikon Z 9 | Flagship Z Mirrorless Camera
  • Red KOMODO 6k
    ... and several others.

    Shares Common Features & Technology with the EOS R5 Camera

    Canon's 45 Megapixel full-frame, CMOS imaging sensor is at the heart of the EOS R5 C camera's superb image quality, which also leads the way for impressive 8K/60P RAW cinematic video shooting.

    Focus and speed are paramount in the EOS R5 C camera, providing impressive still-image continuous capture at speeds of up to 20 frames per second, and with Dual Pixel CMOS AF II capability, to track split second movements of even the most elusive subjects. With 1,053 Automatic AF zones, it is easy to photograph people with the use of Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or intuitively track the whole body, face or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection AF. For those with the need for speed, Canon has also included still-image vehicle subject detection to assist with accurate tracking of cars and motorcycles. Connectivity like 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®, is also included for the transfer of still images.

    Video Control for the Dedicated Video Professional

    As soon as the EOS R5 C's main switch is moved to the "video" position, the familiar Cinema EOS menu system and interface take over. Expected high-level video features such as waveform monitors, video codec options, and extensive audio control become available - greatly expanding the EOS R5 C's video potential for the experienced camera operator or video content creator. During "photo" operation, menus are nearly the same as on the EOS R5 camera.

    Supports 8K/60P Internal RAW Recording

    The 8K sensor and DIGIC X processor produce high-quality video at up to 8K/60P. Use of the Cinema RAW Light format with its high-efficiency mode enables internal card recording without an external recorder.

    Internal Cooling Fan Enables Non-stop 8K/60P Recording

    The EOS R5 C camera features a cooling fan built into the body, forcing out the heat from inside. This enables continuous and virtually limitless shooting of high-definition 8K/60P video without interruption.

    Expanded Interface for Professional Needs

    The EOS R5 C camera provides a Timecode input/output terminal for easy synchronization when shooting with multiple cameras and other interfaces. A cable protector is also included as standard to prevent cable disconnection or damage to the terminal if strong force is applied when connecting interface or HDMI cables.


    Canon's Multi-function shoe with digital audio interface supports the optional TASCAM CA-XLR2d-C professional audio XLR microphone adapter for up to 4-channel audio. This optional accessory adds two full-sized XLR terminals with phantom power and shotgun mic mount, enabling digital 4-channel and 24-bit audio recording to meet professional video production needs.

    In order to run several of the highest quality video settings, including 8k-60p RAW, you need more power than the single battery in the camera or the optional vertical grip:

    Canon DR-E6C DC Coupler for EOS R5 C

    About Canon DR-E6C

    The DC Coupler DR-E6C allows for the use of external power supplies, including A/C mains wall power, for extended shooting periods as well as 8K/59.94P raw recording.

    The Canon R5C has 1 Major Flaw (ALMOST perfect camera??) - Peter McKinnon

    ... With Matti Haapoja and shot at Matt Barnes' private 'lair'.

    In this video I take you behind the scenes of our recent Matt Barnes shoot. I give Matti the new Canon EOS R5 C mirrorless camera for a day of shooting and we put these cameras to work. I have personally been using this camera for the past 2 months now and wanted to share some of my initial thoughts with you. There are a few interesting things about this camera that I wanted to highlight while I talk through the battery life and some power source quirks while shooting 8K Cinema RAW Light. I then get into some thoughts on the menus and the camera overall. Is this my one and done camera? Let’s get into it!
