Canon Announces Full-Frame 8K Cinema Camera

Canon is stepping into the big leagues, with its EOS R5 C, the company first full-frame 8K cinema camera.

This pricey, impressive beast can capture 8K/30p 12-bit RAW video while on the go, with up to 8K/60p when attached to an external power source.

The camera boasts 45-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, which supports burst speeds of up to 20 fps, the DIGIC X processor, plus Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, with tracks moving people through its Eye AF feature.

An RF mount allows third-party lenses to be attached, plus Canon’s own EF, RF, and Cinema lenses.

The whole thing is quite lightweight, at 680g, with a weather-resistant magnesium alloy housing, 13 programmable buttons, a half-inch OLED viewfinder, a 3.2-inch HD LCD monitor, and two card slots: CFexpress 2.0 Type B and the other a UHS-II SD card reader.

Meanwhile, the RF mount allows users to attach lenses across Canon’s EF, RF and Cinema lens lines, as well as third-party anamorphic lenses if a wider aspect ratio is needed.

All of the above is squeezed into a compact and lightweight 680g dust and weather-resistant magnesium alloy body. There are also 13 assignable buttons, along with a 0.5-inch OLED viewfinder and a 3.2-inch HD LCD monitor to show separate menus for stills and video that are accessible via a 3-position power dial.

At an estimated A$8,500, this is a truly high end piece of equipment, which will be available from March.
