Ho Chi Minh City, 18 February 2020 – Canon announced today that the company is currently developing the EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera—containing CMOS sensor, image processing, optical and other state-of-the-art technologies the company has cultivated through its long history of camera development. In line with this, Canon plans to release a total of 9 RF lenses currently in development over the course of 2020. Through the addition of competitive cameras and lenses to its lineup, Canon will continue to strengthen the EOS R System.
Canon’s EOS R5, the first of the next-generation full-frame mirrorless cameras in EOS R System is now under development
The EOS R System enables greater freedom in lens design thanks to a wider lens mount diameter, short back focus and high-speed system for transmitting data between the camera and lens, resulting in an imaging system that delivers higher image quality and greater ease-of-use.
The new full-frame mirrorless camera currently under development will fully leverage the advantages of the EOS R System to realise high-speed continuous shooting, 8K video recording and expanding the boundaries of visual expression. In addition, it can contribute to more efficient workflows thanks to improved transmission functionality, operability and reliability. These enhancements and more will help the new camera elevate the EOS Series concept of “Speed, Comfort and High image-quality” to a higher level.
Canon’s EOS R5, the first of the next-generation full-frame mirrorless cameras in the company’s EOS R System, will include a newly developed CMOS sensor that makes possible advanced features such as high-speed continuous shooting – up to approximately 20 frames per second (FPS) using an electronic shutter and up to approximately 12 FPS using a mechanical shutter – to facilitate shooting of athletes at sporting events and other fast-moving subjects. In addition, the camera’s 8K video capture capability will enable users to extract high-resolution still images from video footage as well as process 8K video into higher-quality 4K videos, opening up new possibilities for visual expression. What’s more, the EOS R5 will be the first Canon camera equipped with a high-performance coordinated Image Stabilization (IS) system that integrates the camera’s in-body IS with IS systems on attached RF lenses. The camera will also feature dual media card slots and support automatic transfers of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform.
RF24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM, the smallest and lightest RF zoom lens
In line with customers’ needs, Canon is also pleased to launch the RF24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM, the smallest and lightest RF zoom lens available to date and weighing only 395g with a length of 88.8mm. Reasonably priced and available as a kit lens for EOS R and EOS RP, the RF24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM offers an affordable option for users who wish to jump into the full-frame bandwagon by adopting the new EOS R system.
When utilised with the renowned RF mount, the RF24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM will deliver top-notch image quality. Coupled with Image Stabilization of up to five stops, capturing images in challenging lighting conditions will be a breeze.
Another unique feature of the RF24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM is its ability to take excellent close-up images. With up to 0.4x magnification, capturing fine details of tiny objects is easily achieved. 0.5x magnification is also possible in Manual Focus mode for users looking to get more close-up images of their subjects.
BAlongside the EOS R5, Canon is also developing a total of 9 RF lenses scheduled for release during 2020, including the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x.
Reference exhibits for the EOS R5, RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x will be on display in the Canon booth at the CP+ Camera and Photo Imaging Show 2020, to be held from 27 February to 1 March at the Pacifico Yokohama convention hall in Yokohama, Japan.
