Re: The R5 is basically a video camera that also shoots stills

8K is the natural headline for this camera, because nobody has done in it this kind of camera before (this kind = consumer system camera for photography). That's also why dpreview cared talking about the R5 rumor (even before the development announcement) but newer mentioned the also rumored R6.

The additional video spec details for R5 announced a week ago, was a little bonus info in the end of a longer Virtual Press Conference all about new products in Canon's professional Cinema Video line. So of course the theme for any new R5 information was also video.

My guess is that Canon will do another R5 teaser sometime mid/late in May, focusing on some of camera's photography oriented features.

But R6 definitely looks to be interesting too. And probably much more affordable...
