Canon EOS R5 C Price in US

The Canon EOS R5C is a hybrid cinema camera that is based on the EOS R5 and is aimed at professional videographers. It resolves many of the issues that were present in the first iteration of the camera. The EOS R5C was introduced in January 2022, about two years after the original R5 was first formally teased, and it has a price tag of approximately $4500 or pounds; hence, you are paying a premium of either $600 or 300 pounds in comparison to the R5.

Everyone enjoyed the movie quality of the R5, especially the 4k HQ, 4k 120, and 8k RAW settings, but nobody liked the fact that it would overheat in any of those modes and require a complete shutdown in order to fully cool down. This is something that you should all know by now. Some people were able to find methods to get past it, while others longed for a version with better heat management that would make it more suitable for their requirements.

And this is where the R5C comes in; at first appearance, it appears to be an R5, but the screen has been stretched outside to make room for vents and a cooling fan that is active. There’s more to it than that, but the active heat management enables the R5C to not only record continuously for longer than the R5’s limit of half an hour, but also to continue recording without becoming too hot even if you run out of memory or power, at least according to my experiments so far. In addition, Canon asserts that the R5C has sealing that is equal to that of the R5 and that it is still dust and moisture proof despite the presence of vents. Oh, and it can take photographs with a resolution of up to 45 megapixels at up to 20 frames per second.

The R5C’s power switch, which has been changed, may now start the device either as a still camera or a video camera, making it the control that differs most significantly between the two models. When the camera is started up in photo mode, it is only capable of taking still images, and its menus and user interface are identical to those of the original R5. However, when the camera is started up in video mode, it transforms into a device that can only record videos, and its menus change to use Canon’s very different Cinema interface. This provides a plethora of features that were not available in the R5, such as Waveform and Vectorscope displays, as well as the choice to use Canon’s XF-AVC codec for 10 bit 4k.

In practical use, it can’t help but seem and feel like two completely distinct people are using the same gadget, but it’s actually more reasonable than it initially sounds to think of doing so. Having said that, there are a few technical issues that should be brought to your attention, such as the fact that eye-detect AF for animals is not accessible for video because it is not currently a part of the Cinema OS.

Last but not least, there is now a port for syncing timecode that has been crammed into the newly extended portion at the back of the device. Additionally, a tally lamp has been added to the front of the device, which not only lets you know when you’re recording but also gives you useful feedback on whether the memory card or the battery is running low. These are the only two remaining notable differences in terms of the device’s physical design.

Awesome

Because Canon did such an incredible job with this camera, I have no doubt that it will be a huge success once it’s released on the market. When searching for a lens with a “particular look and feel,” one may anticipate even fewer impediments because the RF attachment is increasingly popular among third-party lens makers as well.
The year 2022 has only just begun, yet I can’t help but wonder whether we’ve already selected a victor. (I’m publishing this in the hopes of inspiring manufacturers to perform even more admirably this year…) A joking aside, it is a camera that is designed to be “future proof” and comes with a feature that enables the user to progress into various types of projects. There are times when I believe the manufacturer has priced the camera appropriately, and this is one of those times. And with reference to some of the functions that aren’t present, I would like to request that Canon implement an inbuilt ND filter and IBIS in the subsequent edition of their camera. If this is the case, I’m willing to wager that you can confidently label the container with the phrase “game (maybe) over.”

Pros
  • Active cooling system located on the inside
  • Broad range of internal RAW recording options, each with a unique combination of resolutions and frame rates
  • Anamorphic de-squeeze options (x1.3, x1.8 and x2.0 lens de-squeeze factors)
  • There are two primary ISO settings available for producing clear video pictures (800 and 3200)
  • Extremely condensed and lightweight for its size (680g body weight)
  • HDR support (PQ and HLG)
  • There is a timecode in/out terminal that is exclusive to your use.
  • When a cable is inserted into the HDMI Port, there is no restriction placed on the movement of the LCD.
  • ProRes Recording in RAW format may be done externally with the Atomos Ninja V+. 10-bit 8K up to 30p, 10-bit 5.9K (cropped) up to 60p, and 12-bit 2.9K (cropped) up to 60p are the resolutions that are supported.
  • Using a color guide to create a false color
  • Both the Canon DM-E1D Stereo Microphone and the Tascam CA-XLR2d XLR Audio Adapter are capable of being attached to and powered straight from the camera's accessory shoe.
  • Eye AF and EOS iTR AF X are included in the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system (the latest, for photo mode only)
  • The electronic IS function was quite successful in its operation (two modes, standard and enhanced). The picture is trimmed down in each of these settings. This function is designed to work in conjunction with the Optical IS in lenses that are compatible with it. The video picture has retained its appealing appearance
  •  nevertheless, more testing is necessary. Note that DIS is NOT accessible when recording in 8K RAW.
  • Internal oversampling from the 8K sensor is employed for recording in both 4K (at up to 120 frames per second with no cut) and Full HD.
  • SD and CFexpress 2.0 Type B are the two types of card slots that are available. Recording can take place either simultaneously or via proxy, depending on the recording resolution that is selected.
  • when footage in 4k/120 is available, audio recoding will be done.
Cons
  • There is no option to record with the Canon C-Log 2 gamma curve available.
  • The option to record in the highest possible RAW quality is not accessible in full-frame.
  • Not an IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
  • The HDMI connection is not a type A connector.
  • It takes the camera roughly nine to ten seconds to get ready to start recording. I really hope that things can become better over time.
  • The menu of the video camera might be made easier to use (although I feel compelled to mention that some of the choices are already accessible in a "a la Blackmagic Design menu style" format).
  • When utilizing the internal battery, there is a time limit on the recordings.
