The EOS R5 can capture stunning 8K DCI RAW video internally to a CFexpress card, using the whole width of its full-frame sensor for a truly cinematic look. Focus tracking is also available, for footage that looks so good you’d think it was shot on a Hollywood budget.
As well as delivering life-like image quality, 8K resolution allows editors to crop-in on footage and still output a 4K final cut.
There are plenty of options for shooting in 8K on the EOS R5:
• 12-bit RAW,
• 10 bit ProRes RAW via Atomos Ninja V+
• 10-bit 4:2:2 MP4/H.265
• 8-bit 4:2:0 MP4/H.265,
With a choice of DCI or UHD aspect ratios, ALL-I or IPB compression methods and Canon Log, Canon Log 3 or HDR PQ options. Frame rates of 23.98p, 24p, 25p or 29.97p are available, helping you achieve the look and feel you want. 8K can even be recorded to high speed SD (v90) cards when using IPB compression.
8K RAW provides the highest level of image quality and flexibility: capture four times as much resolution as 4K, and change parameters such as white balance after footage has been shot, using Canon Cinema RAW Development software or your favourite non-linear editing application.* 8K RAW is available in a standard or compressed for small video files still with RAW flexibility.
You can also extract still frames from 8K footage, as individual 35-megapixel JPEG files (or HEIF files if footage is recorded with HDR PQ), ideal for situations where you might need to supply video footage and still photos of the same event.
