Canon has revealed the video specifications of its upcoming EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera which is currently in development. The newly released details shed light on the 8K RAW 30 fps and 4K 120 fps video recording capability as well as the In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS).
According to the details, there will be Dual Pixel AF for all 8K and 4K recording modes. The details also reveal that the camera will support full-width video capture in 8K RAW capture or 8K/4K DCI modes [No crop!!!]. The camera will be capable of internal recording 8K 30fps footage in 4:2:2 10-bit H.265 mode. On the 4K side, the camera will capture 4K internally at 120 fps with NO CROP in 4:2:2 10-bit in H.265 modes while 4K external recording will be up to 60fps.

The internal recording mode outputs will have options of Canon Log and HDR PQ, depending on the situation where you want to directly shoot HDR or color grade your footage. The camera will also feature a 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilization(IBIS) which is a first for Canon. According to the company, the IBIS will work in concurrence with Optical IS equipped with many of the RF and EF lenses which will further expand its capabilities.
The camera will feature dual card slots, 1xCFexpress slot, and 1xUHS-II SD slot. It seems that the CFexpress cards might be needed for output of highest quality modes in the camera as 8K 30fps and 4K 120 fps will push UHS-II cards beyond their limits.
Furthermore, the details about the battery are not available which also be a key decision for buyers out there. The revealed specs are promising but only, after the release of all the specs will the true capability of the camera will be known to us.
