The Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera is equipped with a strong DIGIC X Image Processor and a 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, which together produce excellent photos with a broad dynamic range.

The Dual Pixel CMOS AF phase-detection technology provides 100 percent coverage and 1053 points that may be selected automatically. The subject tracking system is adept at acquiring and following not just animals but even people.

When used in conjunction with certain RF lenses, the in-body, five-axis sensor-shift IS system may provide compensation for up to eight stops of exposure loss.

The uncropped resolution of 8K (8192 x 4320/30p) may be recorded in Raw or H.265 format by the EOS R5. In addition to that, it can record in 4K at 120 frames per second in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265)/4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265).

Other notable features include a built-in electronic viewfinder with 5.76 million dots, a 3.2-inch tilting LCD touchscreen, built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth, and fast continuous shooting at up to 20 frames per second when using the electronic shutter and 12 frames per second when using the mechanical shutter.
