With the previous EOS R announcements, Canon unveiled a new path for the EOS name, and today we have a hint on what can be found a little further on down this path; its name is the EOS R5.

Since it was announced as being in development, Canon have teased us with specifications and features that hint at a camera that is sure to please plenty of enthusiast photographers out there.

The first wave of Canon EOS R5 announcements showed us that the camera will feature 8K resolution video, as well as built-in Image Stabilisation. The top shooting speed was stated as 20 frames per second using the electronic shutter, while dual card slots have been added to the body in order to help users handle these larger files with ease. The feature-set was already enough to have us perking up our ears.

Most recently it has been revealed that the EOS R5 will really shine on the video front. 8K RAW 30P recording is offered both internally and externally, using the full sensor. Canon's proven dual pixel AF will be at your service in 4:2:2 10-bit recording, while slow-motion videos may never be the same - the EOS R5 can record 4K in 120p internally and 4K 60p externally.

The built-in IS that we already knew of has now been revealed to function in unison with the OIS of compatible lenses, which will equate to next-level stabilisation results. More too has been revealed of the camera's file handling abilities, with the dual memory card configuration being one SD UHS-II slot and one CFexpress, and automatic transfer of files to Canon's own cloud service being supported.

Showing that Canon has no plans to slow down the growth of the EOS R line, Canon has also announced the development of 9 RF lenses which will also be arriving in the coming year. This includes the RF 24-105mm IS STM lens which a portable everyday zoom lens and the RF 100-500mm L IS USM telephoto zoom lens.

Whether you are already invested in the EOS R system or if you are interested in joining the ranks sometime soon, there is plenty to look forward to.
