The Canon EOS R5 is a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera officially announced by Canon on July 9, 2020 alongside the lower-resolution EOS R6 and various new RF mount lenses. The EOS R5 is the flagship camera body in Canon’s mirrorless line. While it is not a direct successor to any of the Canon's previous mirrorless cameras, it does have clear improvements and advantages over other models.
The camera is available as body only, or with the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.
Shortly after the EOS R5's initial announcement, concerns arose about issues of overheating while recording video, especially 8K video, after short periods of time. In response to users' complaints, Canon issued a media alert addressing these overheating issues, including how long it will take for the camera to overheat at each resolution, why a fan was not included, and how users can prevent the camera from overheating. According to Canon's reported data, the EOS R5 will begin to overheat after recording for just 20 minutes at 8K resolution. A fan was not included to preserve its compact size. Users can delay overheating by toggling on "Overheat Control" in settings, which will adjust resolution and frame rate automatically to prevent overheating. Although Canon offered this explanation, users have continued to complain.
Other testers, however, discovered continuous shooting is possible for up to four hours in 4KHQ mode with an external recorder if no memory cards are inserted, the screen is off, and a dummy battery is used. With an actual battery, again overheating can be avoided for the life of the charge of the battery, about an hour 45 minutes.
