With CP+ cancelled, the next show of any real size is The Photography Show in the UK next month. We’ve already heard that the Nikon D6 will be making its debut there, but now it seems that Canon’s EOS R5 is coming way ahead of when everybody thought and will also make its own grand entrance at TPS between March 14-17th, 2020.

The EOS R5 was only teased by Canon last week and has already created quite a stir online. An official announcement wasn’t expected until around June, although now that appears to be coming forward according to a post on the Canon UK website. About the EOS R5, Canon UK writes…

Introducing the game-changing EOS R5

Exciting news! The recently announced EOS R5, RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lens and new extenders will be making an appearance at the show. Make sure you visit our stand to get your first glimpse at the new additions to the EOS R System.

Built on the revolutionary EOS R System and developed with customer feedback and market needs in mind, the EOS R5 features unrivalled specifications. Including high-speed, high-resolution, 8K video and unparalleled image stabilisation – allowing photographers and filmmakers to push creative boundaries harder and capture action better than ever before.

Following this is a link to the Canon EOS R5 mini-site that simply says what we already know. That it’s capable of shooting 8K video, stills up to 12fps stills mechanically or 20fps electronically, and that it will have IBIS.

Beyond this, Canon has still not released any further specs, but it seems we may find out all in a little over three weeks from now.

As well as the EOS R5, the recently released Canon 1DX Mark III will also be on display during The Photography Show.

For those who are concerned about whether TPS will even happen, given the cancellations from MWC and CP+, DIYP contacted the organisers of The Photography Show, who assure that the event will be going ahead as planned.

      12fps, not 15. And the 12fps is for raw stills, using the mechanical shutter. It’s not the frame rate for 8K video. :)

        Lol my bad, read thru looking to see what 8k video would be shot at. Guess they aren’t releasing that yet. Just used to GoPro and Phone companies advertising resolutions that can’t even shoot at 30fps, or look like crap at 8k, cough, Samsung..

    Canon’s own announcement said they’ll have a “preview” of the R5 at WPPI in Las Vegas, Feb 24-27. I am not sure if it’s going to be a prototype in a glass box, or if it was a working prototype but no body is allowed to put a memory card in it.

      Well, Canon also said it’d be making its debut at TPS. So, who do we believe? Canon or Canon? haha. It does seem they’re bringing things ahead and rushing to get this out sooner rather than later, now, though.

      It’s pretty standard to not be allowed to put memory cards in cameras, though. Most of the cameras I see at shows on stands, particularly the newer models and pre-production display models, have the memory card slots taped over to prevent people inserting their own cards.
