In my last post, I shot images with both the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 to compare the ISO performance of both cameras. As always, this led to a lot of comments, emails, and DMs asking me if I could also compare the different file formats of these cameras. While I still have both these cameras on loan from Canon, I decided that now would be a good time to tests these parameters for all of you (and me too).
Whenever Canon comes out with new cameras, one of my most important real-world tests is determining how clean the images look at higher ISOs. I am not testing this for scientific reasons, I am doing this test because I shoot in low light quite often and want the highest quality images for my clients. I also thought that you and the rest of the world might be interested in this as well.
Many people get caught up in the number of megapixels that a camera has on its sensor, thinking that the more the better. What people may not know is that the more megapixels they cram onto a sensor, and the closer that those pixels are to each other, the more heat build-up occurs. This increase in heat can ultimately also increase the digital noise (graininess) in our photos.
Okay, we all know it by now: the Canon EOS R5 is prone to overheat, which makes it unusable for serious video work. And what about the EOS R6? It’s less impressive in specs, but should you disregard it for video? Dan Watson compares the two models in his latest video and he’ll tell you why you should not underestimate the Canon R6 when it comes to video work.
There’s been a lot of talk about Canon’s new EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras overheating since their announcement and people took a closer look at the documentation. But it seems that Canon might be doing something to address it.
Canon Rumors reports that Canon is planning to release several new EF to RF adapters this year and a Canon patent discovered by the folks at Canon News suggests that one of them might have an active cooling solution to address the overheating concerns in their new mirrorless cameras.
There have been a lot of questions raised about the new Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras, not to mention their new lenses, when it comes to image quality, as there often is when a new camera is released. And as is often the way, we usually only see the web-sized images posted to social media or, at best, a 4K resolution image in a YouTube video.
Well, a curious reader on the Fred Miranda forums has discovered the pages containing some full-size samples on the Canon Japan website for the EOS R5 and EOS R6 as well as the new 85mm f/2 Macro, 600mm f/11, 800mm f/11 and 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 lenses.
Despite Canon feeding us little bits of information about the EOS R5 over the last few months, they’ve remained extremely tight-lipped about the EOS R6. Well, now it’s official, and Canon has announced full specs, pricing and availability for the new EOS R6 mirrorless camera. So, how close were the rumours to the real thing?
The EOS R6 sits squarely in line with Canon’s EOS 6D DSLR line, which was their entry-level full-frame DSLR. Whether the EOS R6 will become the new entry-level for Canon’s full-frame mirrorless system or if Canon will continue the original EOS R and EOS RP lines with new iterations is unknown.
Canon is getting ready to announce the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras and a bunch of lenses in the next few hours, and you can watch the whole thing live, right here. It’s scheduled to begin at 14:00 CEST (1pm UK time, 8am Eastern, 5am Pacific) today, and should make a lot of people very happy. It should also help to clear up the confusion about those long-but-slow f/11 primes.
It’s expected to be announced tomorrow, but as a surprise to absolutely nobody, the photos of Canon’s upcoming EOS R6 mirrorless camera have leaked ahead of the official announcement. Coming from, who else but Nokishita, the leaked photos show the front, top and rear views of the camera with and without a lens, revealing and confirming some information about the camera body itself.
While Canon is preparing to officially announce the EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras in a couple of days, more information is leaking early, including a photo posted to Canon Watch that reveals more information about the EOS R5’s video modes. We’ve also received a tip here at DIYP from a trusted reliable source that reports some interesting details about both the EOS R5 and EOS R6.
Well, a July 9th announcement for the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless bodies looks to be pretty much confirmed now as Canon websites across the world are putting up pages teasing the event, with Canon Japan even including a countdown timer.
The date had previously been rumoured, but nothing was official, until now. Obviously Canon hasn’t come right and said that this is for the EOS R5 and EOS R6, but given that they’re billing it as “our largest product launch to date”, it probably is – especially given the list of speakers.
