Pros: 
  • Tried and tested form factor
  • Strong set of video features
  • Improved battery life
  • Promising IBIS system
Cons: 
  • Not cheap
  • Dual memory cards will require investment

I have a lot more testing to do for my final EOS R5 review, but first impressions are certainly looking very strong indeed. Canon really does appear to have put everything into this camera with the minimum of caveats other than an understandably high asking price of around 4 grand.

It has been five years since Canon introduced a camera that I wanted in my kit more than the 5Ds R. Canon appears to have held nothing back from the incredibly feature-filled EOS R5. I'm betting the R5 is the camera I've been waiting for.

So far, so amazing. While we need to put the Canon EOS R5 through a full battery of lab tests and long-term usage, we’re overwhelmingly impressed by what we’ve seen so far. It’s going to be too much camera for most people, but if you want near-medium format muscle then its 45MP stills packs a...

The Canon EOS R5 is Canon's flagship full-frame mirrorless camera, with class-leading video specifications, as well as impressive stills performance. For stills photography, it does not offer the highest resolution (that goes to the A7R IV) but does offer plenty of resolution.

  • Great vari-angle touch-screen
  • In-body image stabilisation (IBIS)
  • 8K 30fps / 4K 120fps video
  • Dual slots
  • CFexpress / SD
  • Very good handling and controls
Cons: 
  • Noticeably shorter battery life with EVF
  • Video recording limits and "cooldown" periods
  • Limited compact lenses available

The Canon EOS R5 is definitely an admirable performer befitting a price of $3,899 and its billing as the top dog in Canon’s R-Series mirrorless lineup. The camera has great ergonomics, even for those with large hands, and a comprehensive menu system that’s very easy to navigate.

Further, we’ve experienced overheating across the board with Canon, Sony, and Fujifilm when shooting videos. But the cameras have never shut down on us. Practically speaking, you’re just not going to keep shooting video. You’ll give the camera a break and go do something else on set.

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: Canon's best ever stills camera, the EOS R5 is an incredibly powerful tool for almost every kind of photography. While that versatility doesn't quite extend to video, it is still a compelling hybrid option if you're aware of its limitations. The only major barrier for most of us is that price tag.
Pros: 
  • Tried-and-tested form factor
  • Very versatile stills camera
  • Incredible autofocus skills
  • Improved battery life
  • Solid IBIS system
Cons: 
  • Not cheap
  • Dual memory cards will require investment
  • Recording limits for video shooting

★★★★★ 4.6
Verdict: The Canon EOS R5 is well-suited for just about any type of photographer, whether you shoot portraits, events, weddings, sports, family gatherings, and more. We've felt a bit let down by Canon's promises of the camera's outright video capability, but for most users, it's still a great option for getting good-quality video clips of almost anything you point it at. Power users that need the best video quality all the time won't be a good fit, but otherwise the EOS R5 is a fantastic option for almost anyone looking for a quality full-frame high-resolution mirrorless camera.
Pros: 
  • Landscape, event, portrait, and wedding photographers, as well as sports photographers that can benefit from the camera's fast burst rate in its electronic shutter mode.
Cons: 
  • Dedicated video users wanting the best video quality will be hampered by overheating
  • hybrid photo/video shooters that split their time but still need top-quality video

I really did like the EOS R5, despite the overheating problems, because it suited my style of shooting. For $3,900, it’s the only pure high-megapixel hybrid camera that does photography and video equally well.

★★★★★ 5.0
Here is the review of the Canon EOS R5, the first camera with 8K video. A double-edged sword, it turns out.
Pros: 
  • Almost the complete camera with 8K video, extreme resolution, insane firing rate and near perfect ergonomics.
Cons: 
  • 8K is demanding for both the camera, the computer - and the photographer. Short battery life without vertical grip, and high price.

Canon’s highly-specified mirrorless all-rounder is feature-filled and built to last. It produces extremely sharp, high-resolution 45-million-pixel images, while being capable of recording both 8K and 4K video.
