Canon is indeed working on a new high-megapixel RF-mount full frame mirrorless camera (probably called Canon EOS R5S) to replace both the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras. According to the latest rumors, this Canon EOS R5S high-megapixel camera is now being tested by a very select group of photographers as a finished product, and it will feature a new 90MP sensor, which “just about doubles” the 45MP sensor of the Canon EOS R5 (Amazon, B&H, Adorama). So, if it turns out to be true, this Canon EOS R5S would be quite the bump in resolution over the EOS R5, and it will be a very terrifying and powerful full frame high pixel model.
In addition, we previously reported that Canon is planning to announce the development of high megapixel Canon EOS R5S mirrorless camera before the end of 2020, and the final official announcement is expected to be in February or March 2021.
Here are what we know so far about this high megapixel Canon EOS R5S mirrorless camera:
- 90MP full-frame CMOS image sensor
- 5-Axis in-body Image Stabilization
- No 8K video recording capability
- The design is similar to the Canon EOS R5 camera
- Dual card slots: SD (compatible with UHS-II), CFexpress type B
- LP-E6NH battery
- Built-in 5GHz Wi-Fi
- Magnesium alloy body
- Dust-proof and splash-proof
- Development announcement at the end of 2020
