At its core, the EOS R5 C features a DIGIC X image processor capable of internal recording of 8K/30P RAW video, which goes up to 8K/60P RAW video when connected to an external power source. The camera otherwise comes with the Canon full-frame CMOS sensor that comes with 45 million effective pixels.
