World's first 8K Video Recording in a Mirrorless Camera
EOS R5 gives you greater flexibility in post-processing with its 8K video recording capabilities, a first for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The Canon EOS R5 is able to record 8K video in multiple codec flavours including RAW from its full-frame sensor without cropping the sensor so your full-frame wide-angle lenses stay wide for maximum impact. Even more impressive is Canon's renowned Dual Pixel AF which is available in all video recording modes on the EOS R5. Dual Pixel AF is one of the best video autofocus systems out there and a proven life-saver for any solo content creator using Canon cameras.
One of the many benefits of 8K video recording is that you get around four times the detail of 4K video and the ability to export around 33 megapixels still frames out of video footage which opens up for new creative possibilities. If you shoot video and like to have the ability to zoom in while editing you are now no longer limited to only producing for HD delivery as you can zoom up to 4x without a noticeable quality loss! 8k oversampling also enables much higher-quality 4k movie recording resulting in sharper UHD videos from the EOS R5.
Canon EOS R5's recording limit for 8K videos (RAW. DCI, UHD) is restricted to a maximum recording time of around 20 minutes at room temperature due to internal camera temperature limitations. Canon has measured this when setting crop to [Off] and up to 29.97 fps / 25 fps.Canon EOS R5 Key Video Specs

Renowned Canon EOS Ergonomics, Reliability & Dust- and Moisture-resistant Construction
Following in the footsteps of the EOS 5 series, the EOS R5 is constructed from a magnesium-alloy body with strategic weather-sealing at selected locations to ensure high operability and reliability. The body features three control dials; a main dial and two quick control dials for fast and ergonomic use. Canon has listened to feedback from users and AF points can now be selected with a traditional joystick multi-controller within easy reach of a user's thumb.
*Battery compartment, card slot cover, and other parts that can be opened must be securely closed in order to maintain dust- and water-resistance.
Dual Card Slots
The CFexpress card supports high-speed transfer, allowing the camera to perform continuous shooting of 45-megapixel still images, at up to 20 fps, as well as internal recording of 8K RAW movies.
- CFexpress Card slot
- SD Card slot (UHS-II)
5.76 Megapixels Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with 119.88 fps Refresh Rate
Canon has put a responsive electronic viewfinder (EVF) with 5.76 Megapixels resolution in the EOS R5 which promises smooth performance when switching between using the monitor and the EVF while also being great for burst shooting. The viewfinder supports brightness, colour tone and fine-tuning of colour tone adjustments as well as having optimised EVF optics.
3.2" Vari-angle LCD Touch Screen with 2.1 Million Dot Resolution
The inclusion of a fully-articulated Vari-angle LCD monitor makes it easier to shoot from high and low angles or shoot in portrait orientation. An articulated screen like this is a must for any video content creator looking to vlog with the Canon EOS R5 or any creator working alone creating presentation pieces in front of camera.
Top-Mount Dot Matrix LCD Display
A top-mounted dot matrix LCD display allows you to turn off the main monitor to save power and still be able to check various settings and shooting mode on this display with a quick glance at the top of the camera.
Canon EOS R5 Extended Battery Life | New LP-E6NH Battery
