Canon is adding a second 8K camera to its portfolio with the launch of the EOS R5 C.
The camera is a hybrid of video and stills, with users selecting the option they wish to employ.
It includes a high-resolution, full frame CMOS sensor, DIGIC X processor and RF Mount, which enable 8K capture, and 45 megapixel still photo capture at burst speeds up to 20 frames per second, all in a single body.
In a first for Canon, the EOS R5 C has been fitted with a dedicated Timecode In/Out terminal. According to the company, users can make use of the Content Transfer Mobile application for FTP transfers and the editing of ML-G2 metadata.
Canon believes the camera will best suit documentary makers thanks to its Timecode capabilities.
The camera can record in 8K 30p RAW, and can reach 8K 60p when attached to an external power supply. It also has HDR support via PQ and HLG, as well as Canon Log 3 gamma.
Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system enables the EOS R5 C to offer Eye AF and EOS iTR AF X auto focus technology, which tracks people’s eyes in real time and can also follow their head as they look away from the camera. Working in combination with the Optical IS in compatible lenses, the camera features electronic image stabilisation with coordinated control that mitigates the effects of shaking when shooting hand-held, said the company.
The EOS R5 C will be available from March.
