8-speed image stabilization + 20fps continuous shooting How does the Canon EOS R5 camera perform?
Canon EOSR5 is the newest member of Canon EOSR series, it has very obvious changes in all aspects. This camera has many selling points, we have introduced the system before, so I won’t repeat them here. Today we bring you the test and introduction of Canon EOSR5 body performance, including the actual effects of body design, focusing ability, continuous shooting ability and anti-shake ability.
01 Body design: Similar to EOSR, but more like 5D4
First of all, let’s introduce the body design of Canon EOSR5. The overall appearance of this camera is similar to Canon EOSR. After all, it is an EOSR series product, but the overall size is slightly larger than EOSR. The changes in the appearance details of Canon EOSR5 are closer to the feel of Canon EOS 5DMarkIV, so the handling is closer to the experience of using professional-grade SLR cameras.
front, the biggest change in Canon EOSR5 In addition to designing a custom function key, a cross-door line interface and an infrared receiver on the handle, it is a brand new sensor. Canon EOSR5 uses a 45-megapixel brand new sensor, and is equipped with a DIGICX processor to process its “monster-level” data information. The size of the handle has been increased a bit, so the grip is more comfortable.
The bayonet part is still the RF bayonet used on the full-frame mirrorless camera. The advantages of this bayonet system are very obvious, and the corresponding RF series lenses also have better image quality and imaging quality. Of course, relying on this bayonet system, the IS anti-shake on the RF and EF lenses and Canon EOSR5 body anti-shake can work together to achieve the highest 8-speed anti-shake effect compensation. We will conduct a separate test later.
The top of the body, Canon EOSR5 The layout has been consistent with EOSR, especially the design of this shoulder screen is very convenient, which is very helpful for professional photographers to use in various environments.
The layout of the back of the Canon EOSR5 is compared to EOSR5 A substantial change. EOSR5 adds the “RATE” button, the joystick, and the dial on the back. The overall back button layout design is very similar to Canon EOS 5DMarkIV SLR camera, so the control experience is like using a professional SLR camera. For Canon old users, it is very easy to get started. This set of button layout, to be honest, is more conducive to the user’s control and adjustment, including two aspects of taking pictures and videos.
Canon EOSR5 uses a higher-level EVF viewfinder design. This viewfinder has an organic EL panel design of about 5.76 million pixels, with a field of view of 100% and a frame rate of 120fps. The purpose of this is to better allow users See clearly objects moving at high speeds. The EOSR5 part of the screen is exactly the same as the EOSR. The 3.2-inch 2.1-megapixel touch-sensitive rotating screen has a clear advantage in the industry.
The interface part of Canon EOSR5 The consideration is very thorough, and the interfaces commonly used for taking pictures and videos are all fully equipped, so users can use it with confidence.
This time, Canon EOSR5 brings A dual card slot design, SD and CFexpress. For professional users who shoot 8K and 4K videos and often use high-speed continuous shooting, you can use a very powerful and expensive CFexpress memory card; for users with ordinary needs, you can use a cheap SD card. Canon considers both aspects very carefully, which deserves praise.
Finally, Canon EOSR5 adopts a new LP-E6NH battery, 2130mAh. The front of the new battery is designed with a Canon LOGO sticker, which is very easy to distinguish. According to official data, EOSR5’s battery life is 320 or 490. Our actual experience is similar to this data. It doesn’t seem to be much, but in fact it has much higher battery life than many full-frame mirrorless cameras. But don’t worry, EOSR5 supports USBType-C interface charging, and the shooting intensity is high and you can carry a mobile power supply to support it.
Generally speaking, although the overall design of Canon EOSR5 can still be seen as EOS R series at a glance, the detailed design performance and the feeling of holding it in the hand are more like using EOS 5D Mark IV. . The advantage of this is to ensure the portability and professional handling.
02 Focus: The second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing technology has excellent results
With the release of Canon EOSR5, Canon has brought the second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing technology, so autofocus is Performance is improved. When using face+tracking priority AF, the focus area can cover the image sensor about 100% vertical * 100% horizontal. In addition, Canon EOSR5 also added auto-focus detection technology for animals, which can identify the body, face or eyes.
Let’s first experience what kind of progress the second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing technology has made in face/eye recognition.
can be seen, brand new The first generation of full-pixel dual-core focusing system performs very well in face/eye recognition. Not only is the recognition accurate, but it also responds quickly when tracking, and it can still respond quickly after the person bows or turns back. Continue Accurately recognize the human eye. Because when the eyes are not in the picture, EOSR5 will continue to track the outline of the head until the eyes reappear and the camera continues to recognize the eyes.
Next, let’s take a look at how the newly added animal autofocus detection technology performs.
is actually more difficult in daily shooting The point is to focus on the birds. The birds are small in size and move faster. It is even more difficult to ensure that the eyes are in focus accurately. But it can be seen from the video that Canon EOSR5 can very accurately identify the eyes and faces of birds, and perform accurate and rapid tracking and focusing work, so that we can more easily complete it when we take some animal-related photos and videos. .
In the servo autofocus setting, we can also see that Canon provides a wealth of options. For example, Case 2 is very practical and can help users ignore obstacles when tracking focus, and then continue to focus. In actual shooting, such as shooting bird photography, if objects such as branches are blocked during shooting, the eyes or body of the birds will continue to be tracked after moving the blocking objects. The experience is very good and the continuous shooting is also successful. The rate has increased substantially.
Generally speaking, whether it is the second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing technology or the newly added animal autofocus detection technology, they are both practical and easy to use. For users, it can be very obvious Enhance the focus experience in daily shooting, increase the success rate of shooting and improve shooting efficiency.
03 continuous shooting: 12fps+20fps comparable to flagship cameras
Next, let’s experience the continuous shooting capabilities of Canon EOSR5. Canon EOSR5 supports a continuous shooting speed of up to 12 fps with a mechanical shutter and a continuous shooting speed of 20 fps with an electronic shutter. This continuous shooting capability is comparable to the continuous shooting system of flagship SLR/mirror cameras, and is at 4500 Completed under the megapixel level. This puts a lot of pressure on the DIGICX processor and cache.
I suggest that if you want to experience the ultimate EOSR5 camera continuous shooting performance, please use a more powerful CFexpress memory card.
It can be seen that in the continuous shooting process, thanks to the EOSR5’s powerful focusing system, the success rate of the photos obtained during the entire continuous shooting process is very high, and almost all the photos are in focus accurately. For users, daily shooting of pets, wild animals, athletes, racing and other categories can be easily completed, and can obtain 45 million high-pixel photos, bringing richer picture details.
Finally, let’s take a look at the performance of continuous shooting. When we actually tested, we used a 512GB CFexpress memory card for testing. The continuous shooting life of RAW files is 190, and the continuous shooting life of CRAW is 425, which is better than the official data. The official 32GB CFexpress card is used, which is slightly slower than our memory card, so the data we actually tested is better.
Generally speaking, the high-speed continuous shooting capability of Canon EOSR5 is fully capable of professional shooting requirements. At the same time, coupled with the excellent focusing performance of the camera itself, it can perform difficult types of photography and satisfy more professional users. Demand for use.
04 Anti-shake: 8 files are well-known, there is no pressure in the handheld for 3 seconds
Finally, let’s take a look at the anti-shake ability of Canon EOSR5 camera, which is also one of its core selling points. . Canon has equipped EOSR5 for the first time with body anti-shake technology, which can achieve up to 8 stops of effect compensation. This is also the case with the IS anti-shake technology on Canon lenses. Prior to this, Olympus’s 7.5-stop effect compensation was the highest level for civilian cameras, and Panasonic’s 6.5-stop effect compensation was the highest level for civilian full-frame cameras.
Why Canon EOSR5 can achieve 8-speed image stabilization compensation? Due to the large inner diameter of the Canon RF mount, the anti-shake design space reserved for the sensor is also large, and the effect of anti-shake space will naturally increase. Therefore, the EOS R5 body anti-shake can achieve up to 8 gears. Effect compensation. In addition, the Canon RF mount has 12 contacts, which can ensure more efficient communication between the body and the lens, and at the same time have a larger data transmission capacity, so the ability to cooperate with the body anti-shake and lens IS will also be More outstanding, the actual experience of anti-shake effect is more prominent.
We can see from Canon’s official data that when EOSR5 is connected to a lens with IS anti-shake technology, the more the focal length is toward the wide-angle end, the better the anti-shake effect, generally around 7, 7.5, and 8 gears. The more the focal length is toward the telephoto end, the anti-shake effect is reduced, but it can also achieve 6-stop effect compensation when the focal length reaches 500mm.
When EOSR5 is connected to a lens that does not have IS anti-shake technology, such as RF50mmF1.2, RF28-70mmF2, RF85mmF1.2 and other lenses, the anti-shake effect can also achieve 7-8 stops of effect compensation. If a conversion ring is used to connect an EF mount lens, the anti-shake ability is the same as that of an RF mount lens.
Next, let’s experience the actual anti-shake capabilities of these two lenses. In the actual test, we used EOSR5 to connect the RF24-70mmF2.8 lens with IS anti-shake and the RF50mmF1.2 lens without IS anti-shake.
Through our screenshots, we can see that with IS anti-shake, we can use 50mm and 70mm The focal lengths have experienced shooting with various exposure times, among which the 50mm handheld stable shooting reaches 3.2 seconds, and the 70mm handheld stable shooting reaches 2 seconds. It should be noted that the ISO of these photos is 100 or 400, which is the extreme anti-shake test condition.
does not have IS anti-shake Under the circumstances, we also experienced shooting with multiple exposure times at the 50mm focal length, and the handheld stable shooting also reached 3.2 seconds. As the ambient light drops sharply when the test reaches this point, it further illustrates the importance of the body’s anti-shake effect compensation of up to 8 stops.
Focal length: 50mm Aperture: f/10.0 ISO sensitivity: 800
Exposure time: 2s Exposure compensation ：0EV White balance: Auto
Focal length: 70mm Aperture: f/3.5 ISO sensitivity: 100
Exposure time: 1.6s Exposure compensation: 0EV White balance: Auto
Focal length: 50mm Aperture: f/6.3 ISO sensitivity: 800
Exposure time: 1.6s Exposure compensation: 0EV White balance: Auto
It is almost impossible to achieve such a long exposure handheld and stable shooting before EOSR5 is released. In the past, the shutter speed was lower than a certain speed during shooting, especially lower than the safe shutter speed, which will cause the picture to shake and blur. Now we use Canon EOSR5 for handheld shooting, which can achieve 2-3 seconds of handheld stable exposure. This is of great significance to photographers, because many environments can get rid of the shackles of a tripod.
We can see that the Canon EOSR5 has obvious advantages in the current full-frame camera market in terms of focusing system, continuous shooting ability and anti-shake ability. For users, Canon EOSR5 can rely on its own strength to provide greater convenience when taking photos or video shooting, making photographers more worry-free and easier. It is precisely because of this that this camera can give users a better experience. Regarding other parts of Canon EOSR5 test, you can enter the digital video channel to view.
