A significant leap forward of the flagship micro-canon EOS R5 review
In the online new product launch conference held on July 9, 2020, Canon announced a number of the latest products, including the EOSR5 and EOSR6 two latest mirrorless cameras. There are also RF600mmF11ISSTM, RF800mmF11ISSTM, RF85mmF2MacroISSTM, RF100-500mmF4.5-7.1LISUSM, and two teleconverters: RF1.4* and RF2.0* and above. All products are micro-single system EOSR and RF series products . The explosion of Canon’s EOSR series of new products is enough to see Canon’s bold exploration of the future of mirrorless products and camera products. Some of the materials of the pictures and texts come from the joint evaluation of Canon EOSR5.
Since the release of the new product, Canon EOSR5 has been in focus and parameters Performance comes first. Canon EOSR5 is a micro-single product of the EOSR series. In the official promotion, Canon takes “cross-border flagship, breaks the convention, and enters the new world of imaging” as the core, bringing many leading technical specifications. Canon EOSR5 is equipped with a new 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, a new DIGICX image processing engine, a new DualPixel CMOSAFII full-pixel dual-core focusing system, a new animal detection AF, a new 20 frames per second continuous shooting speed, a new Cropping 8K video shooting capabilities…Which one of them alone is amazing, let alone Canon put them all in this EOSR5?
Here, it is naturally worthwhile to focus on its powerful 8K video shooting capabilities. Canon EOSR5 can record in video specifications such as 8K/29.97pRAW without cropping, 8K/29.97p without cropping, 4K/119.88p without cropping, and both support full-pixel dual-core autofocus. Canon EOSR5 put the “distant” epoch-making 8K video in one fell swoop. In my opinion, it is not only confidence in the product, but also a vision for the future of video.
In terms of other parameters, Canon EOSR5 is also very balanced, including The highest level 8 camera body and lens cooperate with dual anti-shake capabilities, which can also bring ultra-high anti-shake effects for lens products without anti-shake; and the CFexpressB type + SDUHS-II dual memory card slot design is also very considerate The solution can also control the cost of shooting to a certain extent. Finally, the official price of 25,999 yuan also surprised people. How does such a static and dynamic camera perform? Let us go through this evaluation one by one.
The overall appearance continues the EOSR system style
The Canon EOSR5 continues the overall style of the EOSR camera in terms of appearance lines, overall functional structure and button layout. The overall body is made of matte materials and materials. It provides high strength and durability for the strong magnesium aluminum alloy. The lines on the top of Canon EOSR5 are very soft, and the width of the body is slightly larger than the previous EOSR.

On the left shoulder of the camera, it is still the power switch. But compared with EOSR, it adds a prominent part, which makes the switch machine easier. On the right shoulder is a negative display screen, which can be used with shortcut keys to preset and quickly adjust a variety of parameters. At the same time, the video recording button, mode selection button and two impellers are also located here, general usage habits Same as EOSR.

The wide handle also ensures the grip of the Canon EOSR5, and the whole is covered by a harder skin. Coming to the back of the fuselage, the functions and layout of the buttons are as always “Canon”, and Canon EOSR5 has restored the two classic designs of the five-axis arrow keys and the thumb dial. This is also the most familiar and familiar to Canon users. The default mode of operation.

on the side of the fuselage is a CFexpressB+SDUHS-II dual memory card slot. Compared with the faster and more expensive CFexpressB memory card, SD card is used for daily shooting It can meet most storage needs, and this design is also very close to the people. Canon EOSR5 also uses a brand-new LP-E6NH battery with a capacity of 2130mAh, which is about a 14% increase compared to the previous generation battery, so the battery life is more guaranteed.

High noise control excellent EOSR5 sensitivity test
The adoption of Canon EOSR5 this time With a 45-megapixel CMOS sensor, the sensitivity range is ISO100-51200, and it can be extended to ISOL50 and ISOH102400. The increase in pixels must make many people pay attention to the performance of its sensitivity, so let’s actually take a look. Two sets of photos were taken with the noise reduction turned on and the noise reduction turned off. The first group is the actual performance of each ISO after the noise reduction is turned off, and the second group is the high sense performance after the noise reduction is turned on and off.
through actual shooting , From the comparison of 100% screenshots, the overall sensitivity performance of Canon EOSR5 is still very good. From the naked eye, it is not bad within ISO6400, but the image quality is beginning to decline at ISO6400. In terms of picture purity, The performance of ISO3200 is better.
and turn on the drop After the noise, the noise of the picture has been significantly reduced, and the color noise is also well suppressed, but the sharpness and detail of the picture have a certain loss. After all, the control of the sharpness of the picture and the amount of noise is impossible. It has both, so when the noise reduction is turned on, it is no problem to use high-sensitivity emergency shooting of some materials.
EOSR5 dynamic range test
Canon EOSR5 has a 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. The dynamic range performance of Canon EOSR5 must be of concern to many people, and the EOSR5 is the same. There is also the HEIF format owned by Canon EOS-1DXMarkIII, which can record 10-bit HEIF images with wide color gamut and rich layers, which can be directly converted into SDR images through the JPEG. Due to the limitation of DigitalPhotoProfessional, we have shot down by 1 -3EV and RAW format photos with increased exposure of 1-3EV, the exposure is pulled back in the DPP software for comparison.
normal exposure scene
Here I use the +3EV~-3EV that users may use when making exposure Range, from the test results, the performance of Canon EOSR5 in the third gear of underexposure and the third gear of overexposure is completely usable, but it is obvious that at +3EV, the yellow has a certain color cast, other colors The performance is basically within a normal range, and there is no obvious noise in the pull back, so users can use it in this range with complete peace of mind. However, we still call on everyone to achieve accurate exposure when shooting, and the pre-work Better than relying on late stage.
EOSR5 anti-shake real shot test
Canon EOSR5/R6 is the first EOSR system micro-single camera equipped with an anti-shake system in the camera, and claims to be able to achieve up to 8 stops of anti-shake Shake compensation, support for synergistic anti-shake of the lens, and provide a very strong anti-shake effect for the lens without anti-shake. Canon took the lead in researching camera anti-shake technology in 1993 and brought the first lens with anti-shake in 1995; after more than 20 years, Canon has achieved remarkable results on EOSR5. The larger size of the Canon RF mount is the inherent advantage of the body’s anti-shake. At the same time, after a large amount of high-speed information processing is performed between the lens CPU, the camera DIGICX processor and the anti-shake module, it then interacts with the lens in real time through the contacts. According to official information, the use of two lenses, RF28-70mmF2LUSM and RF85mmF1.2LUSM, which do not have lens anti-shake, can achieve eight levels only by relying on body anti-shake. Next, let us examine the anti-shake performance of Canon EOSR5 through actual measurement! In this anti-shake test session, we chose the RF28-70mmF2LUSM lens without built-in anti-shake to observe the anti-shake effect of the EOSR5 body. In the test, the standing position was adopted, and the EVF viewfinder was used for handheld shooting, and 3 shots were taken continuously.
Through the actual measurement of different focal lengths and different lenses, The anti-shake effect of Canon EOSR5 is eye-catching. Although it is very difficult to shoot when holding 2s, it still has the probability of getting a clear picture. Of course, the result of the anti-shake test has a greater relationship with the environment, the physical and psychological state of the tester, so this conclusion is for reference only.
In the video anti-shake test, you can see more significant anti-shake compensation by comparing the video, which makes the video picture smoother and smoother. For some conventional sports such as rotation, moving forward and backward, etc. Video screen, hand-held you can get a very good sense of screen.
EOSR5 focus continuous shooting test
Canon EOSR5 can be said to have improved focus and continuous shooting at one time. The new processor can bring a better user experience, regardless of Whether you control the camera or the camera can obviously help the processing speed of photos and videos. The new focusing system also realizes autofocus for animal body, face and eye detection.
Here I am separately The two shooting modes of still photo and video are adopted, and the actual screen recording is used to show you the overall focusing ability of EOSR5. It can be said that Canon EOSR5 is the fastest focusing product among all Canon cameras used. Up.
Focal length: 39mm Aperture: f/2.0 ISO sensitivity: 400 Exposure time: 1/2500s Exposure compensation: 0.7 EV White Balance: Auto
In continuous shooting, Canon EOSR5 achieves a high-speed electronic shutter of up to about 20 frames per second under high pixels, and a maximum of 12 frames per second for mechanical shutter/electronic front curtain shutter. Continuous shooting. Although Canon officially did not provide the specific size of the internal cache, but the daily continuous shooting does not feel the slowness of writing cards, and it is worth mentioning that the jelly effect under the electronic shutter is very good. The above picture is the original sample material, interested friends can click to enlarge it.
8K video function test
Canon EOSR5 is currently the first 135mm format camera that supports 8K video shooting, and also supports 8KRAW video shooting capabilities. It can be said that the video specifications of Canon EOSR5 are in The current 135-frame camera field is the highest, with 8K/29.97pRAW without cropping, 8K/29.97p without cropping, 4K/119.88p without cropping, etc. Note that these are all internal recordings, and all support full-pixel dual-core automatic Focus; and the highest external recording also supports 4K/59.94p; there is no doubt that it can fully meet the needs of current users for video use.
Canon EOSR5 has the characteristics of high resolution, high frame rate, high dynamic range, and high brightness that are popular in the film and television industry. It also supports autofocus and high accuracy when shooting 8KRAW and 4K 120p video. The focus of the eyes is also no problem, and in video shooting, the anti-shake blessing allows EOSR5 to almost get rid of the limitation of the stabilizer, and handheld shooting becomes possible.
8K video cut Frame
8K video 100% zoom in the screenshot
I believe everyone is familiar with 4K. At present, mainstream video playback platforms in China are gradually adding support for 4K, so 4K is high. Frame rate shooting is the same as the high frame rate requirements of the previous 1080 era. In this era, if 4K high frame rate shooting specifications are not added, it is bound to be a bit unable to keep up with the trend of development, and Canon EOSR5 is doing well. Follow up, and also added the 8K30p specification. 8K video not only brings better picture quality performance, but also brings a richer post-cutting space, which is the same as high-pixel still photos reason. And when shooting a video, you can also take a screenshot of the 8K photo, save it as a complete JPEG photo, and share it instantly through the 8K video in the machine to HD video.
Of course, for Canon EOSR5, the problem of video overheating should be the most concerned by movie friends, in order to actually test this machine overheating when shooting video We used EOSR5 for real 8KRAW video shooting in a room with a room temperature of 23℃. After 16 minutes of shooting, there was an overheating warning, and the camera automatically turned off in 19 minutes. The 4K120p high frame rate limit recording time is 7 minutes and 29 seconds, which is basically the same as the official The results of the test are similar. But considering that when most people are shooting, they should record in segments rather than continuous recording for a long time, so for most people, ESOR5 allows users to take precious moments and pictures, and a single lens is more than 10 minutes long. It is not recommended to use 8K or high frame rate mode for time recording.
Battery Life Test
In the battery life, we conducted some tests in conjunction with the camera notes@滕飞ETPHOTOS; first, we tested the display brightness of the screen, and the method we adopted was Take a pure white photo under overexposure and adjust the brightness of the screen to the highest level. According to the actual test, the color temperature of the screen is 6729K, and the maximum illuminance test value of the screen is 603.3lx.
Canon EOSR5 screen Brightness test
In the battery life section, we have tested the maximum power of EOSR5 in different modes. The following tables can explain some things and can help users understand the EOSR5 in different modes. Power consumption. When shooting C4K60pALL-IHQ format video, the measured power consumption is about 10W. When the LP-E6NH battery is fully charged, it will continue to discharge for about 1 hour and 15 minutes at a constant power of 10W.
Canon EOSR5 charging Test
In the charging test, the test found Canon EOSR5 The maximum charging power of the LP-E6NH battery is 7.32W, the full charging time to 83% is 2 hours and 16 minutes, and the full charging time is 3 hours and 10 minutes. The above data should be a good one for Canon EOSR5 users. reference. It is also worth mentioning that Canon EOSR5 can use a charger that supports PD protocol for continuous shooting.
Birds and sports samples
No matter how powerful the focus system is, it must withstand the test of actual combat. Therefore, in this evaluation, we also used Canon EOSR5 with a rich lens group for a lot of For the actual shooting of the subject, let’s first look at the shooting of sports and bird subjects. The main experience here is the human eye focus of Canon EOSR5 and the bird eye control focus and focus tracking capabilities.

Focal length: 200mm Aperture: f/2.8 ISO sensitivity: 250 Exposure time: 1/ 2500s Exposure Compensation: -0.3EV White Balance: Auto
Actually shooting, Canon EOSR5’s brand new second-generation full-pixel dual-core CMOS focusing system is very reliable, regardless of the eye tracking focus in the process of shooting people , Or shooting animals’ eyes to follow focus, both the focusing speed and focusing accuracy make me very satisfied. Combined with the 120Hz high refresh rate EVF, the viewfinder is very close to the feeling of an optical viewfinder during shooting. With the new body anti-shake system and high-speed continuous shooting, slow shutter speeds that were difficult to shoot before, and sports shooting with human eyes tracking focus can now be easily handled.
Next, I used Canon EOSR5 for slow shooting of some themes. The matching lens is Canon RF28-70mmF2.8LUSM. The focus is to experience Canon EOSR5 4500 The charm of megapixels, you must know that on Canon’s full-frame micro system, this is the first time that Canon has used such a powerful body function with a self-developed 45-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. It also has higher requirements.

Focal length: 70mm Aperture: f/2.0 ISO sensitivity: 100 Exposure time: 1/8s Exposure compensation: 0.7EV White balance : Auto
After actual shooting, Canon EOSR5 gives me the feeling that the picture is full of details. Thanks to the high-quality performance of the RF lens and the high-pixel blessing of EOSR5, whether it is color or sharp picture The performances such as the degree of focus and the focus of the image are very comfortable. In this kind of slow subject shooting, you can really shoot as you want. You don’t need to put too much energy on the camera. You only need to concentrate on the composition. Just hand it to the camera.
Night scene sample
I believe that through the previous introduction, everyone is very impressed with Canon EOSR5’s sensitivity performance and anti-shake, so the combination of the two will perform in the night scene shooting theme to the end How? In the shooting of this subject, I shot the starry sky theme and the night street sweeping theme respectively. You can watch the film first, and then I will focus on my feelings.

You can see the high-sensitivity performance of this camera for photos with starry sky theme. You can also click to view the original size images. For the theme of sweeping the street at night, I mostly use light The setting is particularly low, in order to see the super powerful anti-shake effect of Canon EOSR5. I have to say that there is almost no possibility of handheld shooting in many scenes, but it is indeed possible to use EOSR5, which brings me The shock is not small.
It took nearly five months from the official announcement of the Canon EOSR5 in February to the official release in July. This may be the time since I entered this industry. , I have seen the longest warm-up camera, and every time Canon broke the news and the release of the final product, it has set off a climax. It can be said that the emergence of Canon EOSR5 has raised Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera to a very high Above the height, when I reviewed Canon EOSR before, I said that Canon EOSR, as a “founding father” of Canon’s full-frame micro-single product, shoulders a major mission. On the one hand, it is to be able to develop in the full-frame micro-single market. Territory expansion, on the other hand, is to maintain Canon’s leading position in the digital camera industry. The Canon EOSR5, which took two years later, is the mission of Canon’s expansion in the full-frame mirrorless market and its position as the leader in the digital camera industry. Judging from our current comprehensive test results, Canon EOSR5 At least the hardware indicators are qualified, then we will pass the test of time!
The pixel value of Canon EOSR5 is 45 million effective pixels. The EOS family is second only to the Canon EOS5DS series, and is at the top of the full-frame micro-system. The second-generation full-pixel dual-core AF technology not only brings an improvement in the focus system, but also a leap in image quality. The innovation of Canon EOSR5 can be said to be all-round. Whether it is focusing system, image quality performance, continuous shooting performance, body quality and video functions, it has greatly attracted current photographers’ persistence and pursuit of images. And the birth of this camera seems to be a sigh of relief in the entire full-frame mirrorless system. Canon even incorporated some of the features of its own top EOS1DXMarkIII into this machine, which is enough to show Canon’s confidence in EOSR5, so It’s no wonder movie friends will generously jokingly claim that Canon finally squeezed the toothpaste this time.
Canon EOSR5 is proud of its machine this time Body anti-shake function, with an RF native mount lens, it can achieve up to 8 levels of anti-shake capability. Even if it is transferred through EF-RF, although it cannot achieve cooperative anti-shake with EF lens, the anti-shake of EF lens is still effective. , It can also achieve strong anti-shake ability, even if it is transferred to a third-party lens, it can also achieve a good anti-shake effect. The super anti-shake ability brings us a light travel plan for our daily shooting, and handheld shooting also brings us more convenient creative ideas.
In terms of video, Canon EOSR5 can be said to have created a 135mm full-frame camera The first of its kind, the various parameters are excellent, whether it is 8K30p or 4K120p, both lead the industry, and the full-pixel dual-core autofocus system can be used for video shooting. In addition, it can also support internal recording. The design of dual card slots allows users to be flexible Choose a memory card…These provide a good solution for video creators. Although there is a problem of overheating, for most users, there will be no continuous long-term recording. I think this is not a problem, and it is not as serious as the ridicule on the Internet. In addition, it is worth mentioning that EOSR5’s video collaborative anti-shake is really strong, so strong that it can even forget the existence of the stabilizer.
For the previous battery life test, we did not have detailed data Actual measurement, this time we conducted a more detailed test on the battery life of Canon EOSR5, we can find that the battery life of Canon EOSR5 is still good. If there is really high-intensity shooting, there is no problem with a few more batteries. And this machine is common to the previous 5D series and 6D series batteries, so it greatly reduces the user’s cost in battery usage. In addition, in this era when social networks are so developed, even special micro-cameras like Canon EOSR5 are inevitably equipped with Wi-Fi functions, but this time Canon EOSR5 has been upgraded to Wi-Fi in the 5G frequency band, which can be more convenient in combination with APP. Quickly transfer photos to smart devices for uploading and sharing. It is more convenient to use.
With so many powerful functions, the price of Canon EOSR5 is only 25,999 yuan! To be honest, this greatly exceeded the psychological expectations of users for this product, and even many people did not expect that the value of this machine would be within 30,000 yuan. Therefore, in my opinion, there is no need to worry about the market sales of this product. Although the first batch of goods has been sold out, the market situation of short supply should be eased soon. Canon has provided a satisfactory answer in the field of full-frame micro-single. At the same time, the emergence of Canon EOSR5 has also greatly stimulated the new products of other manufacturers. It is a win-win for both the industry and the users. situation.
