Design & Build Quality
The EOS R5 is a top-of-the-line interchangeable lens mirrorless camera from Canon. It uses a magnesium alloy body for enhanced strength while still being comparatively lightweight. The camera body weighs approx. 738 g with battery and memory card and measures 138 (W) x 98 (D) x 88 mm (H). The camera is made in Japan.
The Canon EOS R5 sits at the top of Canon mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and is chock-o-block with features. It incorporates a newly designed 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS imaging sensor. The R5 is compatible with all Canon RF lenses and along with an EF-EOS R adapter, can use the EF and EF-S lenses. Like its younger sibling, the R6, the R5 also provides IBIS (in-body image stabilisation), which, when used with lenses having their own optical image stabilisation, can provide up to a whopping 8-stop advantage in shutter speeds. During movie recordings, the R5 offers in-body + in-lens optical + Digital Image Stabilisation. The camera offers 12 stops of dynamic range in movie footage when used with Canon Log. During video shooting, a zebra-display draws your attention to over-exposed highlights, thus allowing you to take immediate corrective action. Movies can be shot in 8K Raw/DCI resolution without any crop being applied. This provides four times more pixels than 4K videos. You can also extract 8K still frames to create approximately 35.4 megapixel still images from 8K DCI movies recorded at 30p or create slow motion with 120p/100p in 4K DCI/UHD resolution.
Autofocus on the R5 uses a new Dual Pixel CMOS AF II sensor. AF coverage is 100% of the image area. 5940 manually selectable AF positions are available. In Auto-area AF mode, the R5 uses 1053 AF frame segments. The camera can detect an eye, face and head, even when the subject is far away or facing away from the camera. Its Animal Detect AF can detect and track eyes, faces and bodies of cats, dogs and birds. Autofocus works in light as low as -6 EV!
ISO sensitivity on the R5 ranges between ISO 100-51,200, but can be expanded to ISO 50 equivalent on the lower end, and to ISO 102,400 equivalent at the upper end. Metering modes available are Evaluative, Partial, Spot and Centre-weighted average. Exposure modes are Scene Intelligent Auto, Flexible- priority AE (Fv), Program (P), Shutter priority (Tv), Aperture priority (Av), Manual, Bulb, Custom shooting C1, C2, and C3.
The electronically controlled focal-plane shutter on the R5 offers electronic 1st curtain shutter, mechanical shutter and a fully operational electronic shutter. The shutter is tested for 500,000 activations (that would be equal to approx. 13,889 36-exposure film rolls!). The maximum range of shutter speeds varies between 30 seconds to 1/8000sec, plus ‘B’ (Bulb).
