Engadget Review


Canon’s EOS R5 is an innovative high-resolution 8K mirrorless camera, but it’s not for everyone. With in-body stabilization, a flip-out display, great handling, fast and accurate Dual Pixel autofocus and 10-bit 4K 60 fps video, it offers killer specs. It also delivers sharp and color-accurate video and photos with Canon’s human-oriented color science. Unfortunately, it suffers from overheating issues when you’re shooting 8K or certain 4K modes, so it’s not suitable for events or long interviews. Otherwise, it’s Canon’s best full-frame mirrorless camera, by far.
