Canon EOS R5 review: It holds nothing back

 

It may have taken two years to get it right, but the 45MP, 8K-shooting Canon EOS R5 proves that Canon knows how to be a leader in mirrorless cameras.

Excellent, 45MP photos ; Impressive 4K/8K video modes ; Responsive subject-tracking AF ; Good 5-axis image stabilization ; Excellent build quality

Control layout could be improved ; Can overheat in video mode ; Risk of banding at high ISO

Canon EOS R5 review

 

Canon's EOS R5 is one of the best mirrorless cameras on the market today. But even with its 45MP sensor, 20fps bursts and 8K video, its not without its flaws. Find out all the ups and downs of Canon's latest mirrorless flagship right here.

The Canon EOS R5 is one of the best cameras on the market, so long as you have the cash and desire this level of image quality and performance. It's fast, has an excellent autofocus system, offers high resolution, excellent video quality with plentiful...

Canon EOS R5 Review

 

Superb 45MP full-frame sensor ; Fast, accurate autofocus ; Subject tracking at up to 20fps ; Big, brilliant EVF ; Swing-out touch LCD ; 5-axis IBIS ; CFexpress and UHS-II SDXC card support ; 8K and 4K video look great

Video record time limited by heat ; Expensive CFexpress memory required for some features ; Battery life could be better ; Lens system still has some room to grow ; Priced higher than competitors

Still photographers will find little at fault with the high-resolution Canon EOS R5, but heat management issues will leave video-first creatives looking elsewhere.

Canon EOS R5 Review

 

The EOS R5 has been the hottest full-frame camera on the block ever since Canon pre-announced it back at the start of 2020, thanks to its headline grabbing twin features of a 45 megapixel sensor and 8K video recording. We've seen it a few times since...

Canon EOS R5 review

 

The Canon EOS R5 combines unsurpassed stills with fantastic, if frustrated, video

Pristine image quality ; Best AF on the market ; Best full-frame IBIS ; 8K video is astounding ; Lightning-fast burst

Recording limitations ; Standard 4K is just okay

As a stills camera, the Canon EOS R5 is simply Canon's finest product ever. It’s the perfect amalgamation of the EOS R’s form, the EOS 5D’s function, and the professional-grade autofocus of the EOS-1D X. If you're a stills or hybrid shooter who flits...

Canon's Best Camera Has One Big Flaw

 

Canon's latest flagship mirrorless camera is an incredible stills camera and video camera, but overheating issues can make 8K recording a real bummer.

Stills are absolutely gorgeous, incredible autofocus, and solid in-body image stabilization. Can shoot 8K30 and high quality 4K30 10-bit video buuuut…

EOS R5 Review | First With 8K Video Canon EOS R5

 

Here is the review of the Canon EOS R5, the first camera with 8K video. A double-edged sword, it turns out.

Almost the complete camera with 8K video, extreme resolution, insane firing rate and near perfect ergonomics.

8K is demanding for both the camera, the computer - and the photographer. Short battery life without vertical grip, and high price.

Canon EOS R5 review

 

The Canon EOS R5 is its best ever stills camera, with some video compromises.

Tried-and-tested form factor Very versatile stills camera Incredible autofocus skills Improved battery life Solid IBIS system

Not cheap Dual memory cards will require investment Recording limits for video shooting

Canon's best ever stills camera, the EOS R5 is an incredibly powerful tool for almost every kind of photography. While that versatility doesn't quite extend to video, it is still a compelling hybrid option if you're aware of its limitations. The only...
