Carrying glory and dreams Canon’s next-generation full-frame micro-format flagship EOS R5 review
This article comes from Jiayou Online
In a blink of an eye, Canon has entered the field of full-frame mirrorless cameras for nearly two years. From the initial EOS R and EOS RP, Canon has always hoped to surprise EOS users in terms of optical performance. Now there are more than ten supporting RF lenses, and almost every one has distinct characteristics, and has a good reputation among movie friends. When everyone is looking forward to the release of a powerful micro-camera that represents the future direction of camera development, the new EOS R5 is here as promised. What is the picture quality of EOS R5? How about the body stabilization? How is the focus performance? How about the video effect? Next, let us take a look.
Body Design Review
Body In terms of design, EOS R5 continues the design language of the EOS family, with a rounded shape with slightly angular, compact body but full of professionalism.
on the back of the fuselage, EOS R5 has added a focus joystick and rear The design of the dial. In this way, the whole body has three dials + one joystick, and the operating experience is even better than the previous traditional professional SLR.
The top of the fuselage, the iconic shoulder screen design of Canon professional machines It has also been retained. For users of traditional SLRs, the cost of learning has been further reduced.
In terms of detailed design, EOS R5 is also more mature than before : The most typical is the switch button on the left shoulder of the fuselage, with a small bump, which is undoubtedly more convenient for users who use the camera with gloves in cold weather.
On the side of the fuselage, the screen that supports touch flip is still Canon’s fine tradition, the EOS R5’s screen display is more delicate, and the touch is still smooth. In terms of screen experience, EOS R5 is definitely the best among cameras.
On the left side of the fuselage, a variety of professional interfaces are available ：Such as microphone, earphone monitor, flash sync, USB data transmission charging power supply and HDMI video output interface are all equipped. In addition, there is a traditional pin-type shutter release interface on the front of the fuselage, which is common with the traditional EOS 5D series, which is a kind of inheritance.
On the right side of the fuselage, EOS R5 uses dual card slots The design is a B-type CFexpress card slot and an SD card slot. One is responsible for high performance and the other is responsible for compatibility with previous memory cards. It should be said that this is the best storage solution at present.
In general, Canon EOS R5 is designed to provide High scores: Taking into account the professional needs, but also has good compatibility, the details are also considered in place. I believe that even very picky consumers can hardly find faults on the fuselage.
Picture Quality Evaluation-Sensitivity
The picture quality performance of the camera at high sensitivity directly affects its ability to shoot night scenes and sports themes. The better the high-sensitivity picture quality of a camera is, the purer the picture under dark light, and the stronger the ability to increase the shutter speed to condense the moment. We put the Canon EOS R5 on a tripod, set the aperture F8, and the standard noise reduction mode to directly output the JPEG file to test its image quality performance under different sensitivity. Then take the 100% magnified slice under each ISO file, and the slice position is shown in the red frame in the figure.
From the actual performance, Canon EOS R5 is below ISO 3200 The picture quality performance, especially the detail retention, is very good, even if it is required by high standards, it has good usability. Starting from ISO 6400, the details of the picture have been lost, but the picture at this time is still well usable. In the future, the sensitivity is not so friendly to 100% magnification, and it needs proper noise reduction and thumbnail use.
In general, the high-sensitivity performance of Canon EOS R5 must be regarded as an excellent level among high-pixel cameras, representing Canon’s current highest level, and of course it is also a leader in the industry.
Picture Quality Evaluation-Tolerance
Tolerance performance is reflected in the tolerance rate of exposure errors on the one hand. If the exposure errors in the early stage are exposed, they can be retrieved later through processing; another On the one hand, latitude is usually positively correlated with the dynamic range of the camera. For the performance of a camera in landscape shooting, it can be a theoretical reference. How about the latitude of Canon EOS R5, a brand new 45-megapixel sensor? We still use the real shot method for testing.
We put the Canon EOS R5 on a tripod, fixed the aperture at F8, ISO 100, and set the exposure to 3 stops of underexposure, 2 stops of underexposure, 1 stop of underexposure, normal exposure, 1 stop of overexposure, 2 files of overexposure, 3 files of overexposure, use the image processing software Adobe Camera RAW to pull the RAW file back to normal exposure, the result is as follows:
It can be seen that when the Canon EOS R5 is within 3 stops of underexposure, adjusting back to normal exposure is just a little noise in the dark part, which affects the overall look and feel of the picture Not big; in the case of overexposing one stop, the overall picture is acceptable; overexposing two stops, the details and colors of the picture are obviously lost, but the overall usability is still high; until the third overexposing, the picture is seriously lost, and entry is impossible Use range.
It should be said that the tolerance performance of Canon EOS R5 is still satisfactory: it can be pulled back without pressure within 3 gears of underexposure, and 2 gears of overexposure are also very usable. Even if you look at the entire camera market, this is the top level.
In terms of technology, Canon added body anti-shake for the first time, and it can be seen from the results that it can achieve up to 8 levels of anti-shake effect under the CIPA standard. Let’s take a look at the actual effect.
From the actual effect, the anti-shake effect of EOS R5 It’s really good, 8-speed image stabilization is true. In actual shooting, the existence of the anti-shake effect can indeed be clearly felt, whether in photos or videos. According to Canon technicians, thanks to the larger caliber of the RF mount, the CMOS sensor has enough displacement space, which naturally can achieve a better anti-shake effect.
For video, Canon EOS R5 not only supports 8K but also supports wide-format 8K DCI, which is certainly attractive for users who intend to enter the film and television industry. But for personal use only, the author is actually more interested in 4K 120P HD upgraded video.
From the actual experience, the 4K 120P upgraded video on EOS R5 With Canon’s second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing, the overall experience is excellent: you don’t need to consider focusing and anti-shake at all, and you can take very delicate pictures fully automatic. For photographers working alone and shooting outdoors, the emergence of EOS R5 may change the way they work.
Next, we have a sample of a 4K 100P video shot with EOS R5. You can use it as a reference:

In addition, after the emergence of a full-frame camera with high video performance like the EOS R5, Canon’s various foreshadowings, such as the EF lens adapter ring with variable ND filter and the rich lens group, can finally be exhibited This is a big advantage of Canon EOS R5.
If you ask which series can best represent the spirit of Canon, it is undoubtedly the EOS 5D series. From the earliest “5D” and “Invincible Rabbit” to the latest “5D3” and “5D4”, the Canon 5D series has always had excellent performance and a good reputation. Entering the era of EOS full-frame micro-graphics, the magic weapon of the “Invincible Rabbit” massacre: high-resolution + high-definition video. There is no doubt that these two points are very lethal for both professional photographers and high-end enthusiasts. Coupled with the first body anti-shake addition, Canon’s determination and sincerity this time are beyond doubt.
If the previous EOS R and EOS RP both focused on “With this concept, the EOS R5 this time is really aimed at the power of the “power”. It is not a “micro-single version of 5D4”, but an outright “extra-specification product”, aiming to move towards a higher level. Pioneer of market advancement. Therefore, EOS R5 is not only a glorious continuation, but also carries Canon’s dream for the future.
