With a simple switch, the R5 C becomes a fully featured stills camera with all the settings of the fantastic Canon EOS R5. When switched in the other direction, it becomes a full-frame 8K 60p Cinema camera that can record 12-bit Cinema RAW Light footage internally. There's no more need to carry a second camera with you to your production when stills and video are available within a single compact design.

The R5 C enhances a number of features found in its EOS and Cinema EOS siblings, such as the Canon EOS C70, including stunning 4K 120p recording with audio, HDMI RAW output, Canon Log 3 HLG/PQ support, unlimited recording time, timecode port, Dual Pixel CMOS AF with eye detection, an active cooling system, high-power LP-E6NH battery, 13 reassignable buttons, and a multi-function shoe for XLR adapters.

The R5 C camera retains a number of features from the R5 and C70 cameras, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, footage compatibility with DaVinci Resolve and Canon apps, the cutting-edge Canon RF mount, support for a CFexpress card (along with another slot for SD card) and a familiar button layout. The EOS R5 C is also moisture and dustproof, all this is packed into a tiny 1.7lbs body.

The 8K CMOS sensor within the Canon EOS R5 C can produce high-quality video at up to 8K 60p resolution (while connected to mains power; using batteries, it maxes out at 30p) while using the Cinema RAW Light format, which is a high-efficiency mode that enables internal card recording without an external recorder. 

The EOS R5 C camera supports HDR recording in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) format, which helps ensure full color rendition and wide latitude with a great range from black to pure white – which can work wonders for delivering of livestreams, broadcasts, and post-production projects. Both 5.9K in Super 35mm and 2.9K in Super 16mm are also available for internal recording to the CFexpress card.

Still-imaging features and operation are nearly identical to Canon's EOS R5 camera. The R5 C camera features the same 45MP CMOS sensor and a slightly modified Digic X image processor capable of ISO100-51,200 (expandable to 102,400 – though the R5 C also boasts Dual Base ISO for superior video). All this means peak performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints, impressive video and more.
