Canon launched its EOS VR System earlier this month, powered by the new Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye lens – and the manufacturer has released the first real-world footage of what the setup is capable of.

The Canon EOS VR System is an 8K, 3D, 180° VR capture platform with two key components at the heart of it: the new Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye lens and the Canon EOS R5. Together with the new EOS VR Utility, and the EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro, they transform the R5 into a powerful stereoscopic 3D VR rig.
