THE CANON R5

Wow. Where do we even begin? At a top level, we can say with conviction that this is a camera to be VERY excited about. Think of it as the mirrorless sibling to the 5D, but better. It is a true hybrid, meaning it is incredibly capable with both video and still image capture. It’s the first Canon camera to include In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), across all five axes. Combine this IBIS with a compatible stabilized lens and you get a whopping eight (yes, 8!) stops of stabilization. In addition, maximum ISO “clocks in” at 102,400. What does all of this mean? It means the R5 will perform magnificently in just about any light you find yourself in.

The R5 delivers 45MP resolution and shoots full width 8K video. WHAT??? Yep, it’s true. And not only that, Canon says the camera will have an Autofocus (AF) system that gives 100% coverage.

For those that love the ergonomics of traditional Canon DSLR cameras, the R5 delivers by bringing the joystick and rear jog dial to the camera body - something that many folks missed in the earlier R and RP models.

In all honesty, the R5 brings Canon back to the cutting edge of consumer photographic technology.

THE CANON R6

How about the Canon R6? It has much in common with the flagship R5: An almost identical body design/form factor, the same in-body image stabilization, ability to shoot at 20fps using the electronic shutter, and both cameras benefit from the latest version of Canon Dual Pixel autofocus. The biggest differences of the R6 as compared to the R5: It does not offer 8k, RAW video, 4k 120. It also has a lower sensor resolution, coming in at 20MP.  But perhaps the most noticeable difference to the photography enthusiast? Price. The R6 camera body rings in at $2,499 as compared to the R5 camera body price of $3,899. The bottom line: The R6 is a solid alternative to the R5 for those folks looking to spend less, but also receive many of the cutting edge features found in the R5 flagship.
