9. Multi controller and dual card slots
The Canon EOS R5
builds on the heritage of the Canon EOS R
, while adding features that users have requested. The multi controller (joystick) for selecting AF points has been reintroduced, but with a speed control to set its responsiveness.
Canon listened to a lot of feedback about the lack of dual card slots on the Canon EOS R
, but dual card slots were always part of the plan for this pro-level model, which features two different types of cards.
"The Canon EOS R5
will appeal to a wide range of photographers and filmmakers, many travelling the globe, so it was important to go for maximum performance and flexibility," explains Mike. "We've included one next-generation performance CFexpress memory card slot, but these are not widely available outside specialist stores, so for the other we went for an SD card, the most popular memory card on the planet, which means you should be able to get a compatible memory card pretty much everywhere you go."
