The Canon EOS R5 has been generating lots of buzz for its crazy video features, but it also comes with Canon’s latest 45-megapixel sensor paired with a highly impressive autofocus system, making it a great option for stills shooters as well. This great video compares the EOS R5’s image quality to numerous other popular cameras to show what you can expect from it in practice.
Coming to you from Tony and Chelsea Northrup, this excellent video compares the image quality of the EOS R5 to the EOS R6, EOS R, 5D Mark IV, 5DS R, and Sony a7R IV. The EOS R5 features a 45-megapixel sensor, making it Canon’s first high-megapixel full frame camera body since the 5DS series. The problem with the 5DS series, though, was rather limited dynamic range. In the intervening time, Canon has made some very significant advancements in sensor design, and I am personally quite excited to see how the new sensor handles scenes with a lot of dynamic range or significant post-processing. It is also great to see how the R5 compares to the Sony a7R IV, which is well known for its great dynamic range. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
