Canon launches EOS R5 and EOS R6 full-frame mirrorless cameras

Canon has launched two full-frame mirrorless cameras — the EOS R5 and the EOS R6 — in India.

Canon has priced EOS R5 camera at a retail price of Rs 339,995.

The retail price of EOS R6 full-frame mirrorless camera will be Rs 215,995.

Canon will start selling both EOS R5 and the EOS R6 from next month at Canon Image Squares and authorised retailers.

The EOS R5 features 8K movie recording, 45MP full frame CMOS sensor. Canon’s EOS R6 features 4K movie recording and advanced 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor.

Both the cameras feature Canon’s advanced Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit (DIGIC) X imaging processor and new in-body image stabilizer.

Canon said both EOS R5 and EOS R6 come with the new DIGIC X image processor, which first debuted in the flagship EOS-1DX Mark III DSLR, enabling customers to achieve continuous shooting speed of up to 20fps at full resolution using the electronic shutter.

The new DIGIC X imaging processor also opens up more possibilities in terms of noise handling.

Despite having 45MP, EOS R5 native ISO can go up to an incredible ISO 51200, with the option to expand to ISO 102400, Canon said.

With the enhancements made in the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, EOS R5 and EOS R6 are equipped with the ability to enable AF Priority mode for either people or animals.

In addition, the camera is able to recognize not just the body, but the head and eyes of the subjects as well.

Canon has also launched a series of lenses and other accessories to provide its consumers with a complete ecosystem.
