Canon: The new EOS R5 mirrorless full-frame 8K and 4K camera

It is based on the C500 Marking Two, which launched at IBC 2019, and is aimed primarily at the picture palace market place. The C500 MkII recently started shipping and the two look almost identical.

“Nosotros wanted to follow this modular design, with the aforementioned push button layout, same look and feel. This is really important for people switching between the cameras,” said David Parry, product specialist for photo and video products, Catechism United kingdom. “They don’t accept to learn a new photographic camera, they can just selection it up and offset using it.”

However, “internally they are very different beasts”, he added. The C500 MkII has a v.9K full-frame sensor, while the C300 MkIII has a new Super-35 4K chip that hasn’t been used on any other photographic camera. It is a dual proceeds output (DGO) sensor, with 16+ stops of dynamic range, “which is more than whatever other product we’ve got at the moment”. Information technology also promises to take the lowest noise of any Picture palace EOS photographic camera.

As well as HDR, it also offers high-speed 4K DCI or UHD recording (10-scrap four:2:ii XF-AVC or Movie theater Raw Light), at up to 120 frames per second, “which is something nosotros’ve been asked for quite a bit recently”, particularly for documentary piece of work, said Parry. The camera tin can do up to 180fps, only just in Hard disk or 2K using a Super16 crop, and records to dual CFexpress cards and an SD card.

Also useful is its very long recording time – upwards to 130 minutes on one BP-A60 bombardment, “which is pretty impressive”, according to Parry. Using less energy not only has benefits for battery life, merely also picture quality, he added, as lower power requirements hateful the sensors run libation, generating less noise.

The DGO is bachelor at all ISO settings (the native ISO is 800) and works at up to 60p, but non at college frame rates. It uses two betoken paths, i processing shadow areas and the other for highlights, which are then combined in an HDR paradigm.

The photographic camera will come with an EF mount that is user-interchangeable for PL and EF Movie house Lock mounts. Although the C500 MkII is selling primarily with PL mounts, Parry expects the C300 MkIII volition be more popular with EF users.

It takes the aforementioned EVF viewfinder module that fits on the C500 and C700, and there are ii expansion units: the European union-V2, which has been popular for the C500 considering it comes with a V-lock battery mount; and the smaller EU-V1, with just Genlock/Sync Out, RS-422 Remote and Ethernet, which he expects will exist more than popular for the C300 MkIII, particularly as the internal battery life is so much better.

Canon has also revealed more about its upcoming EOS R5 mirrorless full-frame sensor camera, specifically its video capabilities, delivering 4K and 8K.

It will be able to tape 8K Raw at up to 29.97fps, too every bit 4:2:2 10-bit H.265, while 4K can go to 120fps internally (to CFexpress and SD cards) at 4:ii:ii 10-scrap H.265 (Catechism Log or HDR PQ), while it can also output 4K at up to 60fps via HDMI. It also has Dual Pixel CMOS auto focus at all resolutions and all modes.

The camera has five-centrality in-torso sensor stabilisation that works with any lens, making it the first Canon photographic camera with this. It can be combined with lens stabilisation for a “actually high quality image stabiliser”, said Parry.

The company has also appear firmware updates for its professional brandish monitors and Cinema EOS System cameras.

The camera firmware update includes support for Canon’s new CN10x25 IAS S lens on its various Cinema EOS cameras, including such functions as dual pixel CMOS AF, chromatic aberration and peripheral illumination correction functions and lens meta data recording. It has also added XF-AVC Long GoP and XF-AVC Proxy recording to the C500 MkII, plus simultaneous HDMI and SDI output for the EOS C200.

Meanwhile, the visitor’s seven models of professional 4K reference displays have new firmware that improves their 4K/HDR workflow, such as: enhanced brightness and contrast; support for the .cube LUT file format; enhanced co-ordination with Red Digital Movie theatre cameras; and further enhancement of functions to support editing operations.
