Report: Canon EOS R5 and R6 Launch is Less Than a Month Away

According to Canon Rumors, the long-awaited Canon EOS R5 and R6 cameras will be launched together “on or around July 2nd”. Due to the Independence Day weekend, July 6th is mentioned as another possible announcement date.

Either way, the official release of arguably the most anticipated full-frame mirrorless camera of 2020 capable of shooting internal 8K Raw video up to 30fps seems to be just around the corner.


The newcomer will also bring 4K recording up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit (H.265) Canon Log alongside Dual Pixel CMOS AF available in all 8K and 4K modes. Other noteworthy features include Dual Pixel CMOS AF, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, HDR-PQ Recording (H.265), and more.

The EOS R6, on the other hand, is rumored to be far more affordable than its sibling sporting a 20MP full-frame sensor, 20fps electronic shutter, 4K/60p and Full HD/120p modes, IBIS, dual card slots, and more.

Even though it’s not officially confirmed by Canon, the EOS R6 is expected to be the equivalent of the budget-oriented 6D line-up becoming a viable entry-level option for many content creators looking for a cost-effective alternative to the EOS R5.

CR also reports that both counterparts will have limited availability by the end of July. Stay tuned for more details.
