Following its first teaser announcement back on Valentines’s Day this year leaving some speculation space about the rest of its specs that will make the EOS R5 greater, today, Canon has confirmed more details officially but it’s still not a full official launch just yet. Perhaps they are still some killer specs under wrapped?
Long story short, these are what Canon has unveiled officially for the Canon EOS R5, mostly related to the video capabilities:-
