Will the Canon EOS R5 C Be Announced on January 19th?

According to Canon Rumors, the Japanese behemoth will indeed announce the long-awaited Canon EOS R5c (or any other cinema EOS camera) which as the name suggests should be the video-focused version of the Canon EOS R5.

The newcomer will feature the same 45MP Full-Frame sensor found in the EOS R5 alongside unlimited 8K video recording capabilities up to 30fps using Cinema RAW Light, XF-AVC, and MP4 codecs.

Exactly a week from now, on January 19 at 7:00 am EST we will know for sure. For now, though, you can scroll through the leaked specs that Canon Rumors has published recently.

Canon EOS R5c Highlights

  • 45MP Full Frame sensor
  • IBIS
  • Canon Log 3
  • Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
  • No Internal NDs
  • Unlimited 8K30P recording in Cinema RAW Light. XF-AVC and MP4
  • Timecode in/out
  • The same multipurpose hot shoe as the EOS R3 which will work with accessories such as the Tascam XLR module.
  • Active cooling
  • 3/8″ or 1/4″ mounting point on the EVF for a top handle that won’t interfere with the hot shoe.
  • Full-size HDMI Port
  • The LCD has been moved further back to accommodate the cooling fan. So this likely means that it won’t recess into the body like the Canon EOS R5.

Stay tuned for more details and don’t forget to subscribe to Canon’s YouTube Channel where the actual announcement will take place.
