The Canon EOS R5 is in Canon’s new R lineup of mirrorless cameras.
It has a 45-megapixel full-frame sensor, up to 12 frames per second mechanical shutter (and 20 fps electronic shutter), in-camera 5-axis image stabilization, and a bunch of technological tools to help squeeze the best image quality out of it. It also shoots up to 8K30 video, although I’ve mainly been using it for shooting stills.
Here’s a collection of photos I’ve taken with the R5 to give a sense of its stills performance under everyday shooting conditions. Under lockdown conditions, I haven’t been able to get out and about and shoot with as much variety as I’d like. But I hope these still provide something useful for anyone curious about the stills capabilities of this camera.
Most of these were originally shot in RAW, using Canon’s newish CR3 format, which is the default on the R5. It’s a compressed RAW format, but it does so with impressive new compression technology that results in much smaller files with essentially (or even, actually) imperceptible impact on image quality. I routinely turn off in-camera image compression for most of my shooting, but for the purposes here, I wanted to leave it on the default setting. So far, I’ve come across no downside to using CR3.
