For all the wedding videographers, drone camera operators, and multimedia journalists who have professional photo still and cinema video production needs, get ready for a new type of shooting experience with the EOS R5 C Mirrorless Cinema Camera from Canon. With a simple switch, the R5 C is a full-featured still photo camera with all the settings of the R5 EOS mirrorless camera. When switched in the other direction, it becomes a full-frame 8K60 Cinema EOS camera that internally records 12-bit Cinema RAW Light footage. There's no more need to carry a second camera with you to your production when stills and video are available within a single compact design.

The R5 C enhances a number of features in comparison to its siblings the R5 and C70, including 4K120 recording, HDMI RAW output, Canon Log 3 HLG/PQ support, unlimited recording time, a timecode port, Dual Pixel CMOS AF with eye detection, an active cooling system, a high-power LP-E6NH battery, 13 reassignable buttons, and a multi-function shoe for XLR adapters. The camera also retains the reliable features of those cameras such as Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, footage compatibility with DaVinci Resolve and Canon apps, an electronic RF mount, CFexpress/SD card slots, a similar button layout, and more. And all this is packed into a tiny 770g body that is just asking to become your go-to drone camera.

As soon as the EOS R5 C's main switch is moved to the "video" position, the familiar Cinema EOS menu system and interface take over. Expected high-level video features such as waveform monitors, video codec options, and extensive audio control become available, greatly expanding the EOS R5 C's video potential for the experienced camera operator or video content creator. During the "photo" operation, menus are nearly the same as they are on the EOS R5 camera.

The EOS R5 C camera's body design is incredibly compact and lightweight. When paired with a Canon RF lens (or EF lens using the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R), it offers outstanding performance that fits easily and comfortably in your hand, making handheld shooting a breeze whether shooting video or still images. Its electronic viewfinder is optically extended, for eye-level viewing similar to the conventional EOS R5 camera, and it uses the same ergonomic grip design.

The 8K CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processor produce high-quality video at up to 8K60 resolution. Use of the Cinema RAW Light format with its high-efficiency mode enables internal card recording without an external recorder. The EOS R5 C camera supports HDR recording in Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) format, which helps ensure full-colour rendition and wide latitude with a great range from black to pure white, outstanding for the delivery of live streams, broadcasts, and post-production projects.

Cinema RAW Light in 8K is amazing for post-production grading and archiving, or MP4, which is optimized for faster online use. 5.9K in Super 35mm mode and 2.9K in Super 16mm mode are also available for internal recording to CFexpress cards. Cinema RAW Light video files have been optimized for better efficiency to achieve 12-bit recording in all frame rates. Thanks to three newly developed Cinema RAW Light modes (High-quality RAW HQ, standard-quality RAW ST, and Light recording RAW LT), users can select the RAW video mode according to their shooting needs. Lighter, smaller proxy video files can also be recorded while shooting 8K.

The EOS R5 C camera supports RAW output via HDMI and ProRes RAW recording with compatible external recorders such as Atomos devices. By connecting the EOS R5 C camera with a supported external recorder, users can shoot in Apple ProRes RAW at up to 8K30. Proxy data can also be simultaneously recorded to an SD card in-camera, providing efficient post-production operations.

Along with Cinema RAW Light, which provides light data sizes for RAW recording, the EOS R5 C camera supports MXF-based XF-AVC, which conforms to broadcasting standards, as well as the highly versatile MP4. The EOS R5 C camera is also capable of recording two independent video files simultaneously, such as Cinema RAW Light and MP4 at various resolutions including 4K and HD, as well as lightweight proxy files for various professional workflows. XF-AVC offers robust 10-bit 4:2:2 files in a . MXF wrapper for simple compatibility with non-linear editing systems (NLEs) and existing workflows.

The EOS R5 C camera features a cooling fan built into the body, forcing out the heat from inside, enabling continuous and virtually limitless shooting of high-definition 8K60 video without interruption.

The EOS R5 C camera provides a timecode input/output terminal for easy synchronization when shooting with multiple cameras and other interfaces. A cable protector is also included as a standard to prevent cable disconnection or damage to the terminal if a strong force is applied when connecting interface or HDMI cables.

Canon's multi-function shoe with digital audio interface supports the optional TASCAM CA-XLR2d-C professional audio XLR microphone adapter for up to 4-channel audio. This optional accessory adds two full-sized XLR terminals with phantom power and shotgun mic mount, enabling digital 4-channel and 24-bit audio recording to meet professional video production needs.

The EOS R5 C camera is designed with operational flexibility in mind, conforming to each individual professional workflow, including 13 marked, assignable buttons that allow for user-friendly customised operation.

The EOS R5 C camera reads out signals for all effective pixels from its full-frame 8K sensor, enabling 4:2:2 10-bit high-definition recording through oversampling during 4K and 2K video recording. A high-definition debayer algorithm has been included and the 4K generated from the abundant RGB data of the 8K sensor enables more refined imaging capabilities with less incidence of moiré, false colours, "jaggies", and noise.

The EOS R5 C camera can record High Frame Rate (HFR) movies at up to 120p at DCI/UHD 4K resolutions (4096 x 2160/3840 x 2160) in 4:2:2 10-bit without cropping the sensor. Great for shooting scenes full of fast-paced action, the EOS R5 C camera's fast and intuitive autofocus remains enabled even during HFR recording, making it ideal when shooting from a gimbal or drone, delivering outstanding focus accuracy at HFR or at common frame rates.

Unlike some other cameras where audio is not recorded during HFR shooting, the EOS R5 C camera can record .WAV audio as a separate file from video, virtually eliminating the need for separate audio recording and delivering HFR video and audio files in one convenient device when shooting slow motion or fast motion video.

The EOS R5 C camera features Canon Log 3, which is found in many Canon cameras and works with multiple Canon EOS and Cinema EOS cameras. The wide dynamic range can be used for a wider range of grading after shooting. Canon Log 3 is a gamma that is designed for simple gradings, such as tightening dark areas and adjusting tones. It carries on Canon Log's ease of use with less noticeable noise. It can also be used when shooting with other Cinema EOS system cameras such as the EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C70 cameras.

Enhanced image stabilization is achieved through coordinated control when Canon's RF lenses with optical IS are combined with the EOS R5 C camera's electronic IS when shooting XF-AVC or MP4 formats. With an RF lens that has optical IS and the electronic IS in the EOS R5 C camera, coordinated control helps achieve the optimum hand-shake correction effects. This helps achieve better anti-vibration performance than with conventional IS-equipped EF lenses (using optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R) and electronic IS together.

The EOS R5 C camera is an excellent camera pairing with Canon's RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens to achieve stereoscopic 3D 180° VR video (viewing in 3D requires the use of a compatible Head Mount Display). A plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro and Canon's EOS VR Utility is available to streamline the workflow from shooting to editing.

Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology uses every pixel on the imaging sensor to detect focus, and also to capture actual image information achieving both high precision focusing and high image quality. With most Canon RF and EF lenses, AF for video can be carried out over approximately 80% of the vertical and horizontal area of the screen.

Still-imaging features and operation are nearly identical to Canon's EOS R5 camera. The EOS R5 C camera features the same Canon-developed CMOS sensor with approx. 45 effective megapixels, and a DIGIC X Image Processor to enhance the speed of operations across the board. This means fast, efficient performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints, impressive video, and more.

Delivering high standard and expanded ISOs (for still images), and a broad range of options to help enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations, the EOS R5 C camera can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 102400 (H).

The same subject detection and tracking AF as the Canon EOS R5 Camera, even at shooting speeds as fast as 20 fps.

Select "People" as the EOS R5 C's "subjects to detect," and like the EOS R5, it can focus on a detected person's eyes, face, head (if a face is obscured), or even entire body if ahead cannot be detected.

For still images, the same revolutionary Animal Detection AF as the EOS R5 can identify and focus upon eyes, faces, or bodies of birds, cats, and dogs, and can do so over virtually the entire image area with many Canon lenses. This opens up game-changing possibilities for wildlife images, even with subjects as challenging as birds in flight.

Carried over from the high-performance Canon EOS R3 camera, the EOS R5 C adds Vehicle Detection AF as a subject detection option, during still-image shooting. Cars and motorcycles, especially in racing applications, can be identified and tracked, even at high speeds. User-selectable Spot Detection lets the R5 C's AF detect the helmets of an exposed rider or driver, and put focus upon them, instead of the leading edge of the vehicle.

Select the size of the active AF area from a precise single AF point to the entire available AF area and rapidly move a user-selected area via the 8-way multi-controller on the back of the camera. The EOS R5 C has the same range of choices for still-image AF method selection as the EOS R5 camera.

The EOS R5 C camera features an expansive focus area of approximately 100% horizontal and 100% vertical when working with select RF and EF lenses, during still-image shooting. With older EF lenses, or with EF Extender types I and II, the EOS R5 C focuses on approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically of the image. This means fast and impressive focusing even when composing your subject far from the centre of the frame.

Great for night photography or in very low-light settings, the EOS R5 C camera's brilliant AF can operate for still images in light as dim as a light rating of EV-6 where other AF systems may fail or search. Still-image AF is possible with lens + Canon RF tele extender combinations having maximum effective apertures as slow as f/22 - meaning AF is still possible with the RF800mm F11 IS STM + RF2x extender.
