8-gear anti shake + 20fps continuous shooting Canon EOS R5 camera performance

Canon EOS R5 is the latest member of Canon EOS R series. It has a very obvious change in all aspects. This camera has many selling points, we have introduced the system for you before, and will not repeat here. Today we bring you the test and introduction of Canon EOS R5 fuselage performance, including the actual effects of fuselage design, focusing ability, continuous shooting ability and anti shake ability. < / P > < p > first, let’s introduce the fuselage design of Canon EOS R5. The overall appearance of this camera is similar to Canon EOS R. after all, it is a product of EOS R series, but its overall size is slightly larger than that of EOS R. The changes in the appearance details of Canon EOS R5 are closer to the feeling of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, so the handling is closer to the use experience of professional grade SLR cameras. < / P > < p > on the front, the biggest change of Canon EOS R5 is the design of a user-defined function key, cross door line interface and infrared receiver on the handle, which is its brand-new sensor. Canon EOS R5 uses a new 45 megapixel sensor and DIGIC X processor to process its “monster level” data information. Part of the size of the handle has been increased, so it is more comfortable to hold. < / P > < p > the part of the bayonet is still the RF bayonet used in the full frame micro single camera. This bayonet system has obvious advantages, and the corresponding RF series lens also has better image quality and imaging quality. Of course, depending on this bayonet system, the is anti shake effect of RF and EF lens and Canon EOS R5 fuselage can work together to achieve the highest 8-gear anti shake effect compensation. We will conduct a separate test later. < / P > < p > on the top of the fuselage, the layout of Canon EOS R5 is consistent with that of EOS R. in particular, the design of this shoulder screen is very convenient, which is of great help to professional photographers in various environments. < / P > < p > and the layout of Canon EOS R5 fuselage back is greatly changed compared with EOS R. EOS R5 has added “rate” button, rocker and dial wheel on the back. The overall back button layout design is very similar to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV SLR camera. Therefore, the operating experience is like using a professional SLR camera, which is very easy for Canon old users. This set of button layout, to be honest, is more convenient for users to control and adjust, including taking photos and videos. < / P > < p > Canon EOS R5 adopts a higher-level EVF viewfinder design. This viewfinder has an organic EL panel design of about 5.76 million pixels, with a field rate of 100%, and a frame rate of 120 FPS. The purpose of this is to better let users see the high-speed moving objects. Part of the screen EOS R5 is exactly the same as the EOS R. the 3.2-inch 2.1 megapixel touch rotating screen has obvious advantages in the industry. For the part of the interface of < / P > < p > the consideration of Canon EOS R5 is very comprehensive. The interfaces commonly used for photographing and video are fully equipped, so users can use them at ease. < / P > < p > this time, Canon EOS R5 brings dual card slot design, SD and cfexpress. For the professional users who shoot 8K and 4K video and often use high-speed continuous shooting, cfexpress memory card with very strong performance and expensive price can be used; for ordinary users, cheap SD card can be used. Canon’s two aspects are well considered, which is very attentive and commendable. < / P > < p > finally, Canon EOS R5 uses a new lp-e6nh battery, 2130mah. Canon logo sticker is designed on the front of the new battery, which is very easy to distinguish. According to the official data, the endurance capacity of EOS R5 is 320 or 490. Our actual experience is not much different from this data. It doesn’t seem like much, but in fact, it has a much higher endurance than many full frame micro single cameras. However, don’t worry, EOS R5 supports USB type-C interface charging, high shooting intensity, and can carry a mobile power supply to support. < / P > < p > generally speaking, although the overall design of Canon EOS R5 can be seen as EOS R series at a glance, the performance of detail design and the feeling of holding it in hand are more like using EOS 5D mark IV. The advantage of this is to ensure portability and professional handling. < p > < p > with the release of Canon EOS R5, Canon has brought the second generation of full pixel dual core focusing technology, so the performance of autofocus has been improved. When using face + tracking priority AF, the focus area can cover the range of the image sensor about 100% in longitudinal direction and 100% in transverse direction. In addition, Canon EOS R5 also adds auto focus detection technology for animals, which can recognize the body, face or eyes. < / P > < p > we can see that the new generation of full pixel dual core focusing system performs very well in face / eye recognition. It not only recognizes accurately, but also responds quickly when tracking. Moreover, it can respond quickly after people bow or turn back, and continue to accurately recognize human eyes. Because when the eyes are not in the picture, EOS R5 will continue to track the contour of the head until the eyes appear again, and the camera continues to recognize the eyes. < / P > < p > in fact, it is more difficult to focus on birds in daily shooting. The birds are small in size and move quickly. It is even more difficult to ensure that the eyes are accurately focused. However, as can be seen from the video, Canon EOS R5 can identify the eyes and faces of birds very accurately, and can track and focus accurately and quickly. In this way, we can easily complete some animal related photos and videos. < / P > < p > in the servo autofocus setting, we can also see that Canon provides a wealth of options. For example, case 2 is very practical, which can help users to ignore obstacles when focusing and then continue to focus. In the actual shooting, such as photographing birds, in the process of shooting, if you encounter obstacles such as branches and other objects, after moving through the blocking objects, you still continue to track the birds’ eyes or bodies. This experience is very good, and also greatly improves the success rate of continuous shooting. < / P > < p > in general, both the second generation full pixel dual core focusing technology and the newly added animal auto focusing detection technology are both practical and easy to use. For users, it can significantly improve the focusing experience in daily shooting, increase the success rate of shooting and improve the shooting efficiency. < / P > < p > next, let’s experience the continuous shooting ability of Canon EOS R5. Canon EOS R5 supports the continuous shooting speed of up to 12 shots / s for mechanical shutter and 20 frames / s for electronic shutter. This continuous shooting capability is comparable to the continuous shooting system of flagship SLR / micro single camera, and is completed at 45 megapixel level. This puts a lot of pressure on the digital X processor and cache. < / P > < p > the author suggests that if you want to experience the ultimate continuous shooting performance of EOS R5 camera, please use a more powerful cfexpress memory card. < / P > < p > we can see that in the continuous shooting process, thanks to the powerful focusing system of EOS R5, the success rate of the photos obtained in the whole continuous shooting process is very high, and almost all the photos are focused accurately. For users, daily photography of pets, wildlife, athletes, racing cars and other categories can be easily completed, and 45 million high-resolution photos can be obtained, bringing richer picture details. < / P > < p > finally, let’s take a look at the performance of continuous shooting. In our actual test, we used a 512gb cfexpress memory card for testing. The continuous shooting duration of raw files is 190, and that of craw is 425, which is better than the official data. The official 32GB cfexpress card is slightly slower than our memory card, so the actual test data is better. < / P > < p > in general, Canon EOS R5’s high-speed continuous shooting ability can fully meet the needs of professional shooting. Combined with the excellent focusing performance of the camera itself, Canon EOS R5 can carry out difficult type photography to meet the needs of more professional users. < / P > < p > finally, let’s take a look at the anti shake capability of Canon EOS R5 camera, which is one of its core selling points. Canon is equipped with body anti shake technology for the first time on EOS R5, which can achieve the effect compensation of up to 8 gears, and it is the same after cooperating with the is anti shake technology on Canon lens. Before that, Olympus’s 7.5 level effect compensation was the highest level of civilian camera, while Panasonic’s 6.5 grade effect compensation was the highest level of civil full frame camera. < / P > < p > why can Canon EOS R5 achieve 8-gear anti shake effect compensation? As the internal diameter of Canon RF bayonet is very large, the anti shake design space reserved for the sensor is also large, and the effect will be improved naturally if the anti shake space is large. Therefore, the anti shake effect of EOS R5 fuselage can be compensated by up to 8 gears. In addition, Canon RF card has 12 contacts, which can ensure more efficient communication between the fuselage and the lens, as well as a larger amount of data transmission. Therefore, the ability of cooperating with body anti shake and lens is anti shake will be better, and the anti shake effect of actual experience will be more prominent. < / P > < p > we can see from Canon’s official data that when the EOS R5 is connected to a lens with is anti shake technology, the more inclined the focal section is to the wide-angle end, the better the anti shake effect is. Generally, the effect compensation is about 7, 7.5 and 8. The more inclined the focal section is to the long focal end, the anti chattering effect will be reduced, but the effect compensation of six grades can be realized when the focal length reaches 500mm. < / P > < p > when the EOS R5 is connected to a lens without is anti shake technology, such as rf50mm f1.2, rf28-70mm F2, rf85mm f1.2, the anti shake effect can also reach the effect compensation of grade 7-8. If the conversion ring is used to connect the EF bayonet lens, the anti shake ability is the same as that of the RF bayonet lens. < / P > < p > next, let’s experience the actual anti shake ability of these two lenses. In the actual test process, we use EOS R5 to connect rf24-70mm f2.8 lens with is anti shake and rf50mm f1.2 lens without is anti shake. < / P > < p > from our screenshots, we can see that with is anti shake, we have experienced a variety of exposure time shooting in 50 mm and 70 mm focal length respectively, among which, 50 mm hand-held stable shooting can reach 3.2 seconds, and 70 mm hand-held stable shooting can reach 2 seconds. It should be explained here that the ISO of these photos is 100 or 400, which is the extreme anti shake test condition. < / P > < p > without is anti shake, we also experienced a variety of exposure times in the 50 mm focal length, and the handheld stable shooting also reached 3.2 seconds. Due to the sharp decline of ambient light when testing here, it is more important to compensate for the anti shake effect of the highest 8 gear fuselage. < / P > < p > such a long exposure of hand-held stable shooting is almost impossible before the release of EOS R5. In the past, when the shutter speed is lower than a certain speed, especially when it is lower than the safe shutter speed, there is a great probability that the picture jitter will be false. Now we use Canon EOS R5 for hand-held shooting, which can achieve 2-3 seconds of hand-held stable exposure. This has great significance for photography users, because many environments can get rid of the shackles of tripods. < / P > < p > we can see that Canon EOS R5 is in the current full frame camera market, regardless of its focusing system, continuous shooting ability and anti shake ability
