Having teased it for a while, Canon has officially launched the EOS R5, it's flagship mirrorless camera that has a new 45MP full-frame CMOS sensor powered by the DIGIC X image processor. This allows the EOS R5 to record up to 8K resolution videos in 29.97fps in either RAW, 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log H.265, or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ H.265.

Moreover, the EOS R5 features an all-new 3.2-inch panel with 2.1 million dots on a fully articulating arm and a touchscreen. The camera uses Canon's new Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, which is an upgraded version of Canon's tried-and-tested excellent autofocus solution.

On the connectivity front, the EOS R5 features a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port and a micro HDMI connector along with a headphone and microphone jack, a PC socket to synchronize the flash. You also get dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth. The camera is weather-sealed and built around a magnesium alloy chassis and magnesium alloy for the main body.

Lastly, the Canon EOS R5 price in India is set at ₹3,39,995 (body only). It will be available starting August through Canon Image Squares and authorized retailers.

Canon EOS R6: Price, Specifications, and Features

The Canon EOS R6, despite its higher model number, sits below the R5 in the company's product portfolio. The R6 comes with a 20.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS Sensor with the DIGIC X processor. Unlike the R5, the R6 does not feature 8K video recording, so you're limited to 4K video at up to 59.94 fps or 1080p video at up to 119.88fps in 10-bit 4:2:2 Canon Log H.265 or HDR PQ H.265.

The EOS R6, too, comes with Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system, which is an improvement over the earlier Dual Pixel AF system. Both cameras also feature 5-axis in-body stabilization, which when coupled with the optically stabilized RF lenses provides 8 stops of shake correction.

Unlike the R5, the EOS R6 isn't weather-sealed, but it, too, is built around a magnesium alloy chassis but the outer body is made out of plastic. The connectivity options on the EOS R6, on the other hand, are identical to the flagship-spec EOS R5.
