Super powerful bird shooting artifact Canon EOS R5 shooting bird trial
This article comes from Jiayou Online
On July 9, 2020, Canon released a new generation of full-frame micro-format flagship EOS R5 camera. Through fruitful marketing campaigns, it can be said to have suffocated the appetite of film friends and became a star product that many people are looking forward to.
From the perspective of performance parameters, EOS R5 is definitely a super The powerful camera is equipped with Canon’s second-generation full-pixel dual-core autofocus system, with 5949 AF points, and 100% area coverage. It not only has 45 million high pixels and 8K RAW video shooting, but also has a continuous shooting speed of up to 20 frames per second. With the CFexpress high-speed card, it can achieve an almost unlimited continuous shooting experience. The most commendable is that Canon EOS R5 has increased the ability to focus and recognize the bodies, heads and eyes of cats, dogs, birds and other animals. For bird shooting users, it can be described as an epoch-making camera.
An epoch-making product is here, it will be brought to the birdie users What kind of a new experience? Should people who shoot birds with a DSLR switch to a micro-single? Can people who plan to shoot birds skip the SLR and go directly to the micro-single? Hope you can find the answer after reading this article.
One, the same line of Canon SLR users to smooth over
1, familiar EOS control system
R5 is responsible for letting For SLR users to smoothly transition to micro-single, “no moth” is more important than “innovation” in operation. Therefore, the control of the R5 is no different from that of a Canon SLR. The dial, navigation stick, back focus button, and various other buttons are all in their place. Canon SLR users can easily touch them even with their eyes closed. At the same time, EOS R5 can be perfectly compatible with all Canon EF lenses through the adapter ring, which maximizes the protection of the actual interests of Canon’s old users.
2, what you see is what you shoot fine and bright high-definition viewfinder
From SLR to micro-single, the most need to adapt to the change is not to shrink the head, but to change the viewfinder from optical electronic. Many people have misunderstandings about electronic viewfinders, but the current electronic viewfinders are no longer the old technology of insufficient brightness, insufficient precision, picture freezes, and rough dim light. Not only does the display effect is no worse than the optical viewfinder, And can provide us with more information.
The R5’s viewfinder is a 5.76 million dot OLED, distinguishing The rate is equivalent to a 1080 Full HD TV, and the refresh rate is up to 120fps. In a high-eyepoint large viewfinder with the same magnification ratio of 0.76x and an eyepoint of 23mm as 1DX, watch a 1080 Full HD TV with a high refresh rate, and the final shooting effect will be displayed directly to you during the viewfinder. This viewfinder can still look directly at the scorching sun on a sunny day, isn’t it uncomfortable? Brightness, response speed, clarity and smoothness after dimming gain are not a problem for the current OLED. I believe that after using the electronic viewfinder in 2020, no one will miss the optical viewfinder.
3, a variety of power supply methods super battery life
Canon replaced the R5 with an LP-E6NH battery, which increased the capacity to 2130mAh, and was backward compatible with the old 5D and 7D batteries. The continuity of the micro-single is not as good as that of the SLR. This is a problem that SLR users need to adapt after switching over. The EOS R5 generation of Canon micro-single finally supports charging and powering of power banks, and battery life is no longer a problem. And Canon’s logical design is very reasonable, charging when shutting down, and automatically switching to direct power when turning on, so as to avoid thermal noise while charging. There are two issues to note: 1. If you use old 5D, 7D, R batteries, the power bank can only supply power but not charge; 2. Buy a power bank and look for those that support the PD protocol, and those that do not support the PD protocol will not work.
4. Unlimited continuous shooting without missing every wonderful moment
This is also a SLR Bird photographers are particularly concerned about the issue, we tried the continuous shooting of RAW+large jpg. If you use a high-speed SD card, EOS R5 can take less than 100 photos per shuttle; if you use a CFX card, we can take more than 700 photos per shuttle. Zhang hasn’t stopped, this is beyond the normal “one shuttle” range, we can’t try it anymore. Conclusion: If you want 1DX Mark II/III, you can buy a CFX card for R5.
Second, how is the Canon EOS R5 shooting birds? Conclusion-There is no one of the strongest bird shooting cameras in history.
1. High-speed continuous shooting with the highest specifications of mirrorless cameras
EOS R5+RF800/11, F11, 1/2000s, ISO 2500
passed In the trial of Lovebird, we found that R5 is currently the most efficient camera for shooting birds in 80% of the usage scenarios, except for R6.
EOS R5+ RF800/11, F11, 1/2000s, ISO 2000
The continuous shooting mentioned below is based on the premise that each frame is focused and metered: the R5 electronic shutter has a continuous shooting speed of up to 20 frames/ Seconds is one of the fastest in the micro-single.
EOS R5+ RF800/11, F11, 1/2000s, ISO 2000
The maximum continuous shooting speed of the mechanical shutter is 12 frames per second, which is also one of the highest in the mirrorless single, but there are restrictions: the maximum aperture must be used , The shutter speed is more than 1/1000 second, the battery power is more than 50%, and the WIFI and anti-flicker functions are turned off. Otherwise, it can only shoot continuously at 8 frames per second. In addition, in the lens compatibility list, we see that among the commonly used lenses for bird shooting, the first-generation 100-400, 300/2.8, 400/2.8, 500/4, 600/4, 800/5.6 and the second-generation 400/2.8 are all It can only shoot continuously at 8 frames per second. So, now that there is an electronic shutter of 20 frames per second, try to enjoy the pleasure it brings us!
2. Canon AI Bird Recognition: The most capable bird-shooting focusing system in history
Bird-shooting, as long as you have used the R5, you don’t want to use other cameras in most cases. There is no other camera on the market. A camera that can even recognize birds.
AI bird eye Identification tracking
AI Bird head recognition tracking
AI Bird Body Recognition and Tracking
The AI bird recognition focus of R5 is not only bird eye recognition, but bird eye + bird head + bird body trinity recognition, it does not The focus will run around because the bird’s eyes are closed and the bird’s head is buried in the wings. Now as long as it’s a bird-like thing, it won’t even run away if caught. Now as long as it’s a bird-like thing Something, no matter how chaotic it is hidden in the environment, as long as it dares to show its head, it can bite on it. Moreover, this focus can be used in all video modes!
R5+RF800 /11, F11, 1/1000s, ISO 6400.
Like this kind of small head, R5 can directly help you find the bird and track it by AI. There is no need to choose the focus point or something.
With R5 in hand, the threshold for shooting birds is lowered. Novices can still shoot clear birds even if they don’t have 20 years of focusing skills as soon as the shutter is released, and veterans don’t need to regret their focusing skills. , The machine is more capable of playing, we can focus more on creation instead of operation. Therefore, for novices or veterans, R5 is currently the most efficient camera for shooting birds.
Friendly reminder: When the two lenses RF800/11 and RF600/11 are used for R5 and R6, they cannot focus on the full screen. The focus area is about 1/4 of the center of the screen.
3. Image quality: Canon has the best full-frame image quality in history, and one of the best full-frame image quality on the market.
The R5 has 45 million pixels, which is another high pixel that Canon users can use since the 5Ds series. The model is gratifying. Bird photography is often far away from the subject, and the 400mm cannon can only be regarded as the starting focal length. The 45 million high pixels of R5 means that for bird shooting users, it can have more cutting space and avoid insufficient focal length. Embarrassing-After the R5 is cropped with the equivalent 1.6x focal length, there are still 17 million pixels left; after the equivalent 2x focal length is cropped, there are 11 million pixels left.

45 million pixels 100% magnification, feel the stunning details brought by the first high-pixel bird shooting camera
In addition, for users who play output, 45 million high pixels This means that R5 can print A2 size works without interpolation, while the previous 1DX can only print A3 size without interpolation. Friends who are interested, may wish to buy a Canon PRO500 at home and try printing A2 photos by yourself.
45 million pixels The concept is: we can print A2 photos with Canon PRO500 without interpolation!
Many bird lovers are worried about whether the R5’s 45 million high pixels will have noise problems. First of all, R5 is the first full-frame high-pixel model to achieve ISO 51200 standard sensitivity. Yes, the increase in non-expanded sensitivity means that the high sense of R5 will definitely be better than previous high-pixel models. Secondly, everyone has always had a misunderstanding about the high noise of high pixels-the camera of the same era, if the pictures are taken to 100%, the one with high pixels must have more noise, but this is not in line with the actual use scene.
ISO 40000, jpg straight out, standard noise reduction, 45 million pixels 100% partial
ISO 40000, RAW to DNG, ACR processing.
45 million full-size 100% partial, you can interpolate low-pixel photos to get a feel for the difference in details.
shrinks to 2000 Megapixels, 100% local, is there less noise? Are the details solid at once?
There are not many noises. It is meaningful to compare with the same size. If we want to compare whether the noise of R5 will be higher than that of the 20 million pixel model, it is to scale their pictures to the same The size, and then you will be surprised to find that the high sense of R5 is not bad, and the details are better.
then shrink to 4K size, 100% partial, remember this is ISO 40000?
We are showing the effect of ISO 40000, which is the highest available sensitivity of R5 RAW. As of ISO 40000, there will be no dark part color cast. Starting from ISO 51200, the dark part is greenish. RAW can no longer produce the desired effect. You can use jpg directly.
The last is shrink To the 1280 long side, the size used for online communication, without cropping, can still see noise?
In short, it doesn’t make any sense to talk about high-sensitivity noise without using size. In terms of the scene of the picture, whether it is viewed on the screen or output to paper, the picture quality of the high-pixel model is only Will be better, and will not show more noise than low-pixel models. Regarding our statement, the R5 sample of the dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison image comparison tool has been released. You can use the equal-size thumbnail mode and output mode to compare and verify with the low-pixel model.
As for the dynamic range of R5, the non-famous benchmark website PTP has Given the line graph of R5, it can be seen that R5 is an epoch-making model. Canon not only got the double gain amplification, but also achieved a soaring dynamic range through forced noise reduction. However, since both the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter will reduce the number of bits during continuous shooting at the highest speed, the dynamic range will be reduced. Even so, the mechanical shutter is comparable to 1DX Mark III, and the electronic shutter is comparable to R and 1DX Mark II. Comparable.
This is a photo of R5 electronic shutter ISO 200, 100 %Partially, we use the latest version of Adobe DNG Converter to convert R5’s RAW to DNG, and then use Adobe Camera RAW to look at the R5’s dynamic range, you can see Canon’s tremendous progress.
+5EV, No noise reduction
+5EV, only processing false colors, no noise reduction
+5EV, deal with false colors and appropriately reduce noise
However, this problem does not need to be too entangled. The above is only reflected in the ISO 100-400. At 800, everyone’s dynamic range is half a catastrophe. In short, the R5 is Canon’s current full-frame camera with the best picture quality, and one of the best on the market.
4. Video: Enjoy the comfort of 4K super mining and 4K120 liter format
R5 does not crop in all video modes, supports full-pixel dual-core tracking and AI bird recognition, which can be said to be a comprehensive performance The strongest bird camera. In this way, the threshold for shooting bird videos is lowered. Of course, the R5 is not a machine that specializes in shooting videos after all. Video is just its sideline and cannot be recorded for a long time.
4K120fps screenshot, take this Stuff, it’s addictive
EOS R5 is the first full-frame mirrorless camera that can shoot 8K. It also provides 8.2K over 4K, and then 4K120. I couldn’t find a 4K120 camera in the world before. Camera guys, we can finally take 4K120 video with the camera now, this thing is really addictive.
three- and eight-speed five-axis lens body with coordinated anti-shake, a treasure that cannot be ignored
EOS R5 is Canon’s first camera with body anti-shake, its body Anti-shake can work together with lens anti-shake, up to 8 stops of anti-shake effect, and can shoot in 2 seconds with a 50-head handheld, which is stronger than Olympus.
According to the data given by Canon, even with a 500mm telephoto lens, When working with camera anti-shake, it can also be improved by one level compared to pure lens anti-shake.
Friendly reminder: When R5 and R6 use the two lenses RF800/11 and RF600/11, the body anti-shake does not work, it is pure lens anti-shake.

Four, is R5 worth buying? Children do multiple choice questions!
EOS R5 is a very special generation of cameras. It is responsible for the smooth transition of many people from SLR to micro-single. For non-series SLR users and users who are just about to take pictures of birds, There is nothing to entangle, so feel free to change and buy.
R5+RF800 /11, F11, 1/1000s, ISO 6400
, let’s take a picture of birds in another way
R5 is Canon’s biggest technological breakthrough in recent years. Not only is it better than 1DX Mark II/III in most cases It’s easy to use, and it also brings us new gameplay and creates shooting opportunities that we didn’t have in the past. Therefore, children do multiple choice questions. The R5+1DX Mark II/III dual-wielding configuration is the most reasonable. In most cases, you can use R5 to shoot. You need to use 16 frames per second for continuous shooting to shoot high-speed motion. When playing, I went to the 1 series-yes, with the strongest AI bird recognition in the history of the R5, I feel that this time the 1 series has become a bird-shooting machine.
