On paper, and even in the hand, the Canon EOS R5 C has a lot in common with the Canon EOS R5. The Cinema EOS hybrid camera shares many of the same controls, functions and specifications with its EOS R System stablemate, including a compact size, 8K video recording and 45MP stills. So, how do the two cameras differ?
Compared with the EOS R5, the EOS R5 C offers more professional video features, including extensive recording formats, a timecode terminal and a built-in fan. But it also retains the same high-performance stills capabilities of the EOS R5.
Here, we examine some of the shared technology and key differences between the two cameras, with expert insight from Aron Randhawa, Product Specialist at Canon Europe.
