Confirmed: Canon EOS R5C to be Announced in mid-January 2022

The long-rumored Canon EOS R5C is “confirmed” to be announced in mid-January 2022, according to the leading Canon rumors site. The exact announcement date will be between January 11, 2022, and January 18, 2022. Shipping will begin 6-8 weeks after the announcement.

Canon EOS R5C Rumored Specifications:

  • 45mp full-frame sensor (Same as the EOS R5)
  • 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.

It seems that the Canon EOS R5C will be an improved R5 derivative camera for movies, and it seems that it will be in a position like Sony FX3 and Panasonic LUMIX S1H. The price is unknown at this time, but it is said to be considerably cheaper than the Canon EOS C70, which is currently priced at $5499 USD.
