New Canon EOS R5 C Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

New Canon EOS R5 C Full Frame Mirrorless
Ready for Anything: The Canon EOS R5 C True Hybrid, Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Bridges Cinema EOS and EOS Technology

Ideal for a Wide Variety of Content Producers, Including YouTubers, Wedding, Indie and Documentary Filmmakers, Drone Operators and Multimedia Journalists

MELVILLE, NY, January 19, 2022 – Imagine having the best of both worlds at your fingertips. A Canon camera with equal parts video and still digital imaging power, all in one compact-and-lightweight package. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the EOS R5 C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera, a hybrid, RF-mount 8K camera that has something for everyone. The new camera showcases video formats and features from the company’s award-winning Cinema EOS line, alongside select still capabilities that have made the EOS R5 camera a popular and trusted choice among imaging professionals and enthusiasts alike i.

“Imaging professionals are living in a multimedia world. Gone are the days of only needing to be sufficiently equipped and skilled at video or stills,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “The EOS R5 C squarely takes aim at providing end-users with a solution that can tackle all facets of the ever-demanding multimedia and content production landscape. Canon is confident this all-in-one solution can help improve the workflow for a variety of content creators.”

Canon EOS R5 C Camera : Small, but Mighty
The EOS R5 C camera can record non-stop, uninterrupted 8K/60Pii thanks to an active cooling system. 8K video delivers outstanding definition and realism with four times the resolution of 4K video, enabling unprecedented capabilities in video expression and highly flexible workflows, such as 4K cropping from 8K footage.

The EOS R5 C camera can record High Frame Rate (HFR) video up to 120P at 4K resolution in 4:2:2 10-bit without cropping the sensor, an ideal option when shooting scenes full of fast-paced action or when the camera is paired with a gimbal or drone.

New Canon EOS R5 C Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Side View
Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF is functional even in HFR shooting. Unlike some cameras where audio is not recorded during HFR shooting, the EOS R5 C camera can record .WAV audio as a separate file from video, virtually eliminating the need for separate audio recording.

The EOS R5 C is the first Canon camera to provide internal 8K (8192x4320) 60P Cinema RAW Light recording. Cinema RAW Light is a popular and valuable format found in other Canon Cinema EOS cameras such as the EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II. This feature captures the full dynamic range of the sensor and provides video data with a cinematic look, optimized for advanced grading and HDR, in a more manageable file size than Cinema RAW. Cinema RAW Light now has three newly-developed modes, RAW HQ (high quality), RAW ST (standard quality), and RAW LT (light recording). All three modes are 12-bit regardless of frame rate. The EOS R5 C can also record 8K video in MP4 format, ideal for quicker delivery.

The EOS R5 C supports RAW output via HDMI for ProRes RAW recording with compatible a external recorderiii. When connecting the EOS R5 C with a supported external recorder, users can shoot in Apple ProRes RAW at up to 8K/30P. Proxy data can also be simultaneously recorded to an SD card in-camera, helping to provide efficient post-production operations.

Canon EOS R5 C Camera : Powerful Still Imaging Performance
With the flip of a switch, the EOS R5 C becomes a familiar force to be reckoned with as a still photography camera. At its core is Canon’s 45-megapixel high resolution, high-speed full-frame CMOS sensor, paired with the equally impressive DIGIC X image processor that provides users an ISO range of 100-51200; expandable to 102400iv. Precise focus and lightning-fast speed are cornerstones of the EOS R5 C, featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF II and high-speed continuous shooting of up to 12 frames-per-second (fps) in mechanical shutter mode and up to 20 fps in silent electronic shutter mode. This allows users to track and photograph split-second movements of even the most elusive subjects. With EOS iTR AF X and 1,053 Automatic AF zones, it is easier than ever to photograph people using Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or intuitively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection AFv. For those with the need for speed, the camera also offers vehicle subject detection to track cars and motorcycles accurately, especially in race-type environments. Connectivity like 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi®vi and Bluetooth®vii connectivity is also included for the transfer of still images.

Additional Features of the Canon EOS R5 C Camera Include:

  • Supports 8K HDR recording in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) formats
  • 4K and 2K oversampling with high-definition debayer algorithm that processes RGB data of the 8K sensor with less incidence of moiré, false colors, and noise
  • XF-AVC codecs offer robust 10-bit 4:2:2 files in a .MXF wrapper for simple compatibility with non-linear editing systems (NLEs) and existing workflows
  • Canon Log 3, which is found in many Canon cinema products, is available for a wider range of grading after shooting
  • Coordinated image stabilization (with Canon lenses equipped with optical IS) helps to correct hand-shake and better anti-vibration performance than electronic IS alone
  • Timecode terminal allowing for multi-camera shooting
  • Canon’s next-generation Multi-Function Shoe is compatible with a variety of accessories, such as an optional TASCAM CA-XLR2d-C XLR microphone adapter (sold separately) for up to 4-channel digital audio
  • RF mount provides access to the expanding lineup of Canon RF lenses, as well as the full lineup of EF lenses (adapter required)
  • Compatible with Canon’s new RF 5.2mm 2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens allowing for stereoscopic 180° VR video capture
  • 13 marked, assignable buttons allow for user-friendly customized operation
  • Compact-and-lightweight at 1.7 lbs. (body only)
  • 3.2-inch variable-angle LCD monitor and high-definition 5.76 million-dot viewfinder
  • Dual card slots: one CFexpress and one SD UHS-II
  • USB Video Class (UVC) connectivity, enabling out of the box use as a streaming video camera
  • A new DC Coupler DR-E6C helps to provide the continuous power needed for the demands of shooting in Cinema RAW Light at high framerates

Canon EOS R5 C Camera Pricing and Availability
The Canon EOS R5 C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is scheduled to be available March 2022 for an estimated retail price of $4499.00.* For more information please visit, usa.canon.com.

Introducing Canon’s First Full Frame, 8K Cinema EOS Camera

Canon EOS R5 C
Compact and lightweight, the EOS R5 C is a hybrid cinema camera for the next generation of content creators
 
The EOS R5 C, Canon’s first full frame, 8K Cinema EOS hybrid camera

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 19 January 2022: Canon Australia today announces the EOS R5 C, a powerful, hybrid cinema camera which combines the professional filmmaking features of the Cinema EOS range with the EOS R System’s photo capabilities. Underpinned by a high-resolution, full frame CMOS sensor, DIGIC X processor and the RF Mount, these three elements enable high fidelity 8K capture, and 45 megapixel still photo capture at burst speeds up to 20 frames per second, all in a single body. Building on the ground-breaking impact the EOS 5D Mark II had on the filmmaking industry, the EOS R5 C’s compact, yet versatile body supports the needs of a new generation of content creators and solo shooters. Further enhancing the Cinema EOS line-up, Canon is also announcing a significant upgrade to the renowned EOS C70 via a firmware update. This will improve on the already outstanding Cinema EOS capabilities with the addition of 12-bit Cinema RAW Light recording, amongst other features.

Canon’s first hybrid Cinema EOS camera

Marking a first for the renowned Cinema EOS System, the EOS R5 C is capable of internal 8K 30p RAW recording and up to 60p when using an external power source1, which achieves outstanding clarity and flexible post-production possibilities. Thanks to the internal active cooling system, content creators can enjoy hours of filming2 in high-quality 8K. With HDR support via PQ and HLG, as well as Canon’s popular Canon Log 3 gamma, filmmakers can capture breath-taking, true-to-life video and realise greater expressive possibilities, to truly immerse the viewer in the content. Featuring Canon’s esteemed Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, the camera offers Eye AF and EOS iTR AF X, ensuring precise focus every time. This advanced auto focus technology tracks people’s eyes in real time and can even follow their head as they look away from the camera. Working in combination with the Optical IS in compatible lenses, the camera features electronic image stabilization with coordinated control that mitigates the effects of shaking when shooting hand-held, for smooth footage and sharp imagery.

Thanks to the 45-megapixel sensor and DIGIC X processor, the EOS R5 C features high-quality still image performance and blisteringly fast burst rates up to 20 frames per second. The DIGIC X processor also enables noise processing innovations that enable sensitivity as high as 51,200 ISO – perfect for shooting in low-light environments, such as at indoor sporting events. Offering photographers’ greater creative freedom, 10-bit HEIF images can be captured with extended dynamic range and colour gamut. Additional options are available with the interval timer enabling the capture of incredible high-resolution time-lapse content.

Streamlined 8K workflows

The EOS R5 C records Cinema RAW Light internally, to sustain high fidelity 12-bit footage with a wide dynamic range and colour gamut, all in a manageable file size. Canon has also introduced three newly developed variations of RAW, including RAW HQ (High Quality), RAW ST (Standard Quality), and RAW LT (Light Quality), so users can select the mode based on their shooting needs and production process. Two card slots – a CFexpress 2.0 Type B and UHS-II SD card slot - allow for advanced simultaneous recording options where different formats, resolutions and bit depths can be recorded to each card at the same time for flexible workflow options. This includes audio recording when shooting at 4K 120p. Along with 12-bit Cinema RAW Light, the EOS R5 C supports Canon’s popular 10-bit XF-AVC format up to 810Mbps and highly versatile MP4 options. Using its full frame 8K sensor, the EOS R5 C enables 4K and Full HD recording with exceptional clarity, colour and low noise through internal oversampling. This also facilitates recording of High Frame Rate content at 4K 120p resolution, without cropping the angle of view and maintaining auto focus functionality.

Versatility and connectivity

With the EOS R5 C, Canon is giving professionals a versatile tool that can help them meet the increasingly broad demands expected of content creators. Built using the innovative RF mount, which features a short flange focal distance as well as a 12-pin connection for faster communication between the camera body and lens, the EOS R5 C can be used with lenses from across Canon’s EF, RF and cinema lens line-up. As demands for VR content increase, the combination of 8K video with Canon’s new RF 5.2mm F2.8L Dual Fisheye Lens, simplifies the production of immersive VR footage from capture to editing. As well as the flexibility of lenses, this camera has the same Multi-Function Accessory Shoe found on the EOS R3 and XF605 for directly connecting and powering accessories such as Canon’s DM-E1D Stereo Microphone and TASCAM’s CA-XLR2d Audio XLR Adapter. The EOS R5 C has also been fitted with a dedicated Timecode In/Out terminal for integrating into a professional multi-camera solution. With advanced connectivity, users can make use of Apple Content Transfer Mobile3 application for FTP transfers and the editing of ML-G2 metadata – perfect for news gathering and solo shooters.

Compact, familiar body

To truly offer the best of both worlds, the EOS R5 C has two separate menus for stills and video - the EOS R system and Cinema EOS interface. Controlled by the 3-position power dial, users can seamlessly switch between modes and access the relevant settings. With 13 assignable buttons and a range of professional video features, the EOS R5 C allows for incredible customisation. This cinema powerhouse also features a 0.5-inch high-resolution OLED viewfinder with 5.76 million dots for accurate image analysis, a dot-matrix display on the top for quickly checking camera settings and a bright articulating 3.2-inch HD LCD monitor for convenient viewing from multiple angles during the day or night.

Designed with solo shooters in mind, the EOS R5 C employs an ultra-lightweight 680g chassis – making it the smallest and lightest Cinema EOS camera to date. While compact in nature, this camera features a durable magnesium alloy body with dust and weather sealing, thanks to an intuitive design that separates airflow from the electrical components.

Canon EOS C70 Firmware Update

The latest C70 firmware update unlocks advanced capabilities including an added Cinema RAW Light LT 4K recording option, and XF-AVC proxy recording function to support this. Creators can realise all new creative opportunities and enhanced image quality from the EOS C70, thanks to Cinema RAW Light LT and new Frame and Interval recording options, such as stop frame animation and time lapse video. With the firmware released in December 2021, users can also enjoy greater compatibility with 12 further lenses4 when using the EF-EOS R 0.71x Mount Adaptor, with full optical correction, metadata and auto focus support, giving filmmakers enhanced flexibility of lens choice.

The smallest most versatile Cinema EOS camera yet, the EOS R5 C is the ultimate hybrid. From seamless 8K video workflows, to high-speed, high-quality stills, this camera is ready to capture anything professional content creators throw at it.

Pricing and availability for Canon EOS R5 C:

Pricing will be set at dealer discretion, with an RRP of $7,499.00. Available in Australia in March, the EOS R5 C will be supported by Canon Australia’s 5-year warranty when purchased from an authorised Canon Australia reseller5. For more product information, visit here: EOS R5 C

New Canon imageCLASS LBP722Cx Colour Lazer Printer

Canon imageCLASS LBP722Cx Colour Lazer Printer
New Canon imageCLASS LBP722Cx Helps Small and Medium Businesses Optimise Productivity in the New Normal


Ideal for today’s offices, the user-friendly A4 colour laser single-function printer maximises workplace productivity with fast print speeds and flexible connectivity

SINGAPORE, 10 January 2022 — Canon today announced the launch of the new imageCLASS LBP722Cx, a robust and reliable A4 colour laser single-function printer. Designed to provide businesses operating in the new normal with improved productivity, connectivity, data security and sustainability, the printer fits small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as workgroups within large enterprises perfectly. The printer also employs a unique V² colour imaging technology to improve colour saturation and sharpness, producing remarkably striking, vivid and vibrant printouts.

“As businesses navigate change and uncertainty in the new normal, work and cost efficiencies will help position them for recovery and growth,” said Norihiro Katagiri, Senior Vice President, Digital Printing & Business Solution Operations, Canon Singapore. “The latest imageCLASS LBP722Cx allows users to work efficiently with a variety of connectivity features and time-saving capabilities, while driving cost efficiency. Combining a high yield replacement toner that lowers cost per print, and a cloud-based print management solution that gathers print usage trends, the imageCLASS LBP722Cx boosts cost efficiency by helping businesses make informed decisions to reduce printing costs.”

Increased Productivity and Connectivity
The imageCLASS LBP722Cx meets high volume colour printing demand in the office with fast print speeds of up to 38 pages per minute (ppm). The printer also offers a Quick Startup mode and swift First Print Out Time (FPOT) of less than 6.3 seconds to help users reduce time spent on waiting. In addition to greater productivity, the imageCLASS LBP722Cx delivers flexible connectivity with built-in wired LAN, wireless LAN and Dual Network that allows the sharing of printer across different network environments. Combined with seamless mobile connectivity, the printer supports a wide range of mobile printing solutions such as the Canon PRINT Business, Canon Print Service, Apple® AirPrint™ and Mopria® Print Service.

Enhanced Data Security
Safeguarding against data breaches, the imageCLASS LBP722Cx offers an array of security features to help businesses strengthen data security. Notably, the built-in Encrypted Secure Print feature holds encrypted print data temporarily till users authenticate at the printer to release print jobs for printing. This measure eliminates the possibility of unattended confidential printouts and helps prevent data leakages. The printer also supports TLS 1.3, the latest security protocol that encrypts data to provide a secure communication channel between the printer and computer. This helps to effectively prevent sniffing, spoofing and tampering of data exchanged between the two endpoints.

Additionally, the imageCLASS LBP722Cx protects data against tampering by malware or malicious third parties with Verify System at Startup and McAfee Embedded Control. These features verify the integrity of the printer’s boot process, firmware and applications during startup and runtime. The printer also supports uniFLOW Online Express, a cloud-based print management solution that prevents unauthorised access with secure user authentication.

Improved Sustainability
Built to minimise negative impacts on the environment, the imageCLASS LBP722Cx offers a Forced Hold Print feature to hold print data temporarily until users release print jobs at the printer, reducing paper wastage due to uncollected printouts. The printer also includes a Sleep Mode that helps businesses reduce energy consumption to as low as 1.1 W during period of inactivity, and Auto Shutdown mode that sends the printer to power off after a predefined time.

Availability
The latest imageCLASS LBP722Cx will be available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers in January 2022.

Canon Enters The Virtual Reality Platform Software Market

Canon Enters The Virtual Reality Platform Software Market
A Real “Together” Experience Canon Enters The Virtual Reality Platform Software Market By Introducing An Interactive VR Experience With Immersive Calling

Introducing The Kokomo Software By Canon, A First-Of-Its-Kind VR Platform Software for the Company, Currently Being Developed by Canon

MELVILLE, NY, January 4, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today showcases a first of its kind immersive virtual reality experience, the Kokomo Software by Canon. Kokomo is a software platform (currently in development1) designed to change human communication by combining virtual reality with an immersive calling experience.

This innovative software is being designed to provide users with a way to meet friends and family virtually “in-person” by using a compatible Canon camera, a VR headset and a compatible smart phone. Kokomo will allow users to see and hear one another in real time with their live appearance and expression, in a photo-real environment, while experiencing a premium virtual reality setting in captivating locations like Malibu, New York, or Hawaii.

The app uses Canon cameras and imaging technology to create realistic representations of users, so calls feel like you are interacting face-to-face, rather than through a screen or an avatar. This creates a Real“Together” Experience.

“With Kokomo we’re tapping into Canon’s innovative spirit and heritage of high-quality imaging to enable people to have real, authentic interactions when they get together in VR. Every ImmersiveCall should be a memorable experience,” said Kazuto "Kevin" Ogawa, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Kokomo will enable people to create memorable, meaningful connections.”

CES® attendees will be amongst the first to try out the Kokomo software (currently in development) by Canon during the ImmersiveCall demonstration which will feature the Canon RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens. Kokomo will be available in 2022 and the company plans to add new destinations, functionalities, and features to the Kokomo app, along with expanded compatibility with Canon cameras1.

Canon USA introduces hyper-realistic virtual reality calling technology in development at CES

MELVILLE, NY, January 3, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has continuously redefined limits and at CES 2022, the company will showcase new collaborative visions through its innovative technologies (Booth #15086). With the launch of the theme ‘TogetherNext,’ Canon will unveil new interactive digital experiences through four cornerstones to show how its solutions make connecting with people, cultures and the world around us more exciting than ever before. Canon is also teaming up with actor and producer Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his company, HitRecord, to show first-hand how Canon’s new hybrid collaboration technology in development can help them create through a virtual, real-time writers’ room experience.

“2021 was a year of defining the new normal for work and personal interaction. As a company focused on innovation, we, too, had to transform our business model and integrate new technologies that befit the world of today and tomorrow on a collective level.” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Inspired by collaboration, we are poised to usher in new solutions that focus on helping people, cultures and the world connect and thrive now and into the future, and we are proud to showcase them at this year’s CES 2022.”

With Kyosei as the driving force, Canon’s immersive experience and four cornerstones at CES 2022 educates attendees on how the company looks to contribute to society and have a positive impact.

Create Together with Canon

In 2021, many parts of the world adopted the new normal of hybrid and remote work environments in one way or another. Canon, with the creation of software tools, such as the AMLOS (Activate My Line of Sight) System (with is currently in development)1, is looking to help redefine how we see, engage and interact. In line with the three words of single, simple, and seamless, AMLOS is being designed to use a single camera enabling multiple sights, simple operation through gesture control (for in office participants), and seamless connectivity with software such as Microsoft Teams.

This hybrid working system is being designed to enable in-office presenters to guide the focus of the camera using simple gestures and share digitally enhanced, high-resolution images from the room with remote collaborators who can customize their view of the meeting, focusing on the speaker, the whiteboard, a screen or a prop in the room that the presenter focuses on.

It’s a system that is looking to truly give creativity and collaboration freedom to roam. Canon is teaming up with actor, producer and HitRecord founder Joseph Gordon-Levitt to showcase the AMLOS system in action during a virtual, real time writers’ room.

HitRecord is all about opening up the creative process and making it as accessible as possible. So to showcase how the AMLOS solution works, some CES attendees will see a virtual writers’ room (from HitRecord’s offices and other locations) as founder Joseph Gordon-Levitt as well as Emmy Award®-winning writers and creators of the animated series ‘Wolfboy and the Everything Factory,’ Edward Jessy and Toff Mazery, create a new original short film.

Over the four days of CES, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the HitRecord team will virtually participate and use the AMLOS System to brainstorm film concepts, create characters and develop storyboards, resulting in an animated short film to be produced and released in the weeks following CES.

Be Together with Canon

CES attendees will be among the first to try out the all-new Kokomo software by Canon (currently in development)1; an innovation in virtual reality that combines the 3D experience of beautiful and life-like VR destinations with video calling. Visitors will be able to enter a real-time “ImmersiveCall,” with a Canon brand ambassador who’ll tell them all about this exciting new way of connecting.

At the heart of Kokomo, is a Real “Together” Experience, which has helped to shape the development of the technology. The purpose of the technology is to provide people the opportunity to have real interactions when they get together, so they can have memorable experiences in a brand-new way.

The Kokomo software uses Canon cameras and imaging technology to create realistic representations of users, so virtual reality calls feel like you are interacting face-to-face rather than through a screen or an avatar. So, even when people can’t “be there” with the people they love, they can feel like they are there. And this is just the beginning. Canon will soon be announcing the official launch date of Kokomo and has exciting plans to add new destinations, functionalities, and features to the Kokomo software, along with expanded compatibility with Canon cameras and lenses, including the recent Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye Lens, also being showcased at CES.

Admire Together with Canon

At CES, attendees will have the opportunity to marvel at an ancient piece of Japanese art thanks to a joint project organized by the Kyoto Culture Association (NPO) and co-sponsored and promoted by Canon. The Cultural Heritage Inheritance Project is a social contribution initiative with the goal of preserving original cultural assets by creating high-resolution facsimiles of Japanese art. Combining Canon’s technical expertise in imaging, processing and output with the master craftsmanship of traditional Kyoto artisans, the Project produces and donates high-resolution facsimiles of such celebrated historical Japanese cultural assets as folding screens, sliding doors and illustrated scrolls to the owners of the original pieces across Japan and the temples, shrines, and local authorities that held the pieces before they were sent overseas. The camera and equipment used in the process of creating the high-resolution facsimiles being showcased at CES 2022 includes an EOS R5 full-frame digital interchangeable-lens camera, Speedlite EL-1 flash unit and imagePROGRAF PRO-4100 large format printer.

Attendees of CES will have the opportunity to see a high-resolution facsimile of “The Wind and Thunder Gods” by renowned painter Tawaraya Sotatsu. This delicate, yet grand work is kept under strict climate-controlled conditions. Today, The Wind and Thunder Gods, replicated through Canon technology in the highest level of detail that celebrates the original work, can inspire new generations.

Experience Together with Canon

CES attendees can join one of New York’s coolest wheelie crews as they hit various locations throughout Brooklyn, thanks to the footage captured on the Canon EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera along with the new Canon RF5.2MM F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens. The new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens brings stereoscopic 3D virtual reality (VR) capture* to the EOS R5 camera as part of the EOS VR System. As the world’s first digital interchangeable dual fisheye lens capable of shooting stereoscopic 3D 180° VR imagery to a single image sensor**, the complexities of virtual reality production and the ability to view the content in full capacity are greatly streamlined for seasoned professionals and newcomers to the craft.

In order to truly experience the content captured by this system in its truest form, a compatible VR headset is recommended for use, such as the Oculus Quest 2, which allows viewers to immerse themselves in the content -- by simply moving their head to provide a vivid, incredibly wide view.
