Canon Middle East has revealed that development of the EOS R5, a full frame mirrorless camera, is currently underworks.

The EOS R5 will have features such as high-resolution, 8K video and image stabilisation.

The new camera, that’s built on the EOS R platform, will have 12fps using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter offering 20fps.

Canon says this combination of speed will appeal to everyone from wedding to wildlife photographers.
