canon says r5 specs will be ‘cinema industry-standard’

Canon has continued its ongoing tease of the EOS R5, revealing that the camera possesses “cinema industry-standard” specs including 8K raw internal, and “will shoot comfortably on high-end production sets” such as commercials, dramas and documentaries. In fact, the Canon EOS R5’s specs are so powerful that the manufacturer claims it can act as a partner to its newly announced Canon EOS C300 Mark III cinema camera, as it “boasts features seen only in high-end cinema cameras many times its price point and video features no other mirrorless camera on the market offers”. While the Canon EOS R5’s sensor resolution still hasn’t been revealed, one mystery has now been solved: the memory formats it’ll support.

ADSLR or mirrorless camera is really essential for shooting fast-moving targets, and you’ll benefit from a model with a fast continuous burst rate and autofocus system. It’s an added bonus if your body is fairly rugged, so you can take it outdoors without worrying about weather damage. In terms of glass, a zoom lens such as a 70-200mm can be a versatile starting option, depending on the size and distance of the subject in question. Smaller creatures such as birds will require much greater reach, but as prime telephotos can cost thousands, a teleconverter such as a 1.4x can be a versatile accessory to invest in, increasing the effective focal length of your existing lens without a substantial loss of light or image quality. Just because you’re staying close to home, that…
