Save over AU$1,000 on the Canon EOS R5 in this excellent cashback offer

You'll not get any arguments from us if you told us the Canon EOS R5 was a powerhouse. It brought Canon out of the innovation slump the camera maker had fallen into when it launched its first full-framer mirrorless camera in 2018. 

Since its launch in 2020, the EOS R5 has been the talk of the proverbial photography town, all because of its excellent autofocus performance and speed. All this hype is warranted though: it was the first consumer mirrorless camera to offer 8K video recording (with its controversial issues of course), it can spew out stills at a top of 20fps, and its 45MP sensor can outperform most of the best mirrorless cameras on the market. Then let's not forget it's in-body image stabilisation mechanism, that offers up to 8 stops of compensation for camera shake when paired with some RF lenses.

All those pro-level features don't come cheap though. At full price, the Canon EOS R5 retails for AU$6,499 body-only in Australia. While some retailers offer it for a touch less than that, Ryda.com has outdone them all by slashing the asking price to just AU$5,714 for the body alone. 

There's more to be saved though, if you take advantage of Canon's cashback offer – this will get you back an additional AU$250 from the camera maker itself. So your final price ends up being AU$5,464 – more than AU$1,000 off on the actual RRP of the mirrorless marvel.

You're getting a lot of camera for this kind of investment – a 45MP sensor, Dual Pixel CMOS AF II (yes, Canon's autofocus system has been upgraded), spot-on eye, head and face tracking, a blitzing 20fps burst speed, IBIS and, of course, that 8K video. So if you've been lusting after this remarkable piece of photographic equipment, and you've been saving up for it, this might be your chance to snap it up.

In addition to looking after they day-to-day functioning of Digital Camera World in Australia, Sharmishta is the Managing Editor (APAC) for TechRadar as well, and helps produce two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve. 


With an ear to the ground in the Asia-Pacific territory, she is constantly on top of camera news and breaking developments in the Australian region, in addition to sourcing local deals during big retail events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
