The camera we reported yesterday as the Canon EOS RS is confirmed to be called the Canon R5. A known and trusted source affiliated with Canon Rumours, “A known source has let us know that what was, posted yesterday has a lot of truth to it. It's not 100% accurate, but they did not clarify any specifications, as this particular source never does.”

    Canon Rumors removed RAW from 8K as they were not able to validate, but we're going to keep it in as we have been hearing some rumblings and believe that the Canon R5 will indeed have 8K RAW at 30 fps.
