The Game Changers from Canon

Photography means different things to many people. For some, it could be about capturing quality shots when you’re out and about, travelling the world or at a special occasion, for others, photography is a life-long passion and requires the best in technology, features and functions to ensure picture-perfect results.

We all love a new camera with all the bells and whistles and it’s no exception with the release of the new Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6= full frame mirrorless cameras. With two new cameras models on the market, it might be hard to tell which model is best suited to you. To help make your life easier, we’ve outlined what each model offers and a simple comparative table to assist with your camera purchasing decision.

Canon EOS R5 Digital Mirrorless Camera

You don’t have to go big in size to record large. The EOS R5 is hailed as an “industry game-changer” as it enables photographers and videographers to document life in incredible world-class 8K resolution. That’s right, record in life-like 8K resolution. While watching 8K is not yet the norm, recording it is achievable with the R5. Record uncropped 8K resolution at up to 30 frames per second (fps) or you can choose to record in uncropped 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second.

The EOS R5 also boasts a professional 45 megapixels full-frame CMOS sensor and a newly developed 5-axis in-camera image stabilisation system, helping reduce camera shake and blur. Subject tracking with the EOS R5 is incredible with both human and animal eye, face and head detection.

All the mirrorless camera features you know and love can be found in the EOS R5, these include an electronic viewfinder, vari-angle LCD screen, time lapse mode and an enormous up to 5940 autofocus points for improved picture quality.

With its powerful performance and leading capabilities, there’s so much to love about the Canon EOS R5. For the dedicated professional photographer, the EOS R5 Digital Mirrorless Camera is the perfect fit.

Canon EOS R6 Digital Mirrorless Camera

Dubbed as the R5’s little brother, the Canon EOS R6 Mirrorless Camera embodies everything a digital photography enthusiast needs. Featuring a 20.1 megapixels sensor with 100% autofocus (AF) frame coverage, capturing the moment is so easy.
Like the EOS R5, the R6 also sports the newly developed 5-axis in-camera image stabilisation system, helping reduce camera shake and blur. Subject tracking across both camera models is the same, featuring both human and animal eye, face and head detection.

While the EOS R5 boasts 8K movie recording the R6 still offers incredible video recording in its smaller and lightweight model. With the Canon EOS R6, you can record in 4K resolution with up to 60 frames per second, alternatively, you can record with up to 120 frames per second in Full HD resolution.

The EOS R6 has all the mirrorless camera features to help you capture life’s best moments, from the electronic viewfinder, vari-angle LCD screen, up to 1053 autofocus points and Dual SD card slots. Suited for the family photographer or the photography hobbyist, documenting still images and videos has never been easier!
