Canon EOS-R5 rumors solidify while I still have hard time believing it records 8K video (maybe it’s just a “burst” mode?)

CanonRumors now updated the rumor and is confident the camera will be named “R5” (and not “RS” as rumored by the same site before):

  • Named the Canon EOS R5
  • 45mp full-frame CMOS sensor
  • IBIS
    • 5 stops with IBIS alone
    • 7-8 stops of correction when used with in-lens stabilization
  • 12fps mechanical, 20fps electronic
  • Scroll wheel added to the back
  • No touch bar
  • Liveview/Movie toggle like previous EOS DSLRs
  • Larger capacity battery, but looks like the LP-E6
  • 8K @ 30fps RAW
  • 4K @ 120fps
  • 4K @ 60fps
  • Built-in 5GHz WiFi
  • New battery, but the same shape and compatibility as the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Announcement ahead of CP+ next month
  • Launching in July 2020 (I’m assuming this means ship date)

I still share what I heard that this camera dos not record 8K video and does not record 4k120fps. So this means we now have two options: Either one of us is wrong or maybe this 830fps and 4k120fps means something else…for example this will not work in normal FF mode but somehow in a very crippled supercrop mode or low quality mode. Or maybe something a la Panasonic 6k burst mode. Which would explain why my source said it has no 8k video!
