Is the Canon EOS R5 the Best Camera for Wedding Photographers?

For a long time, Canon's 5D DSLR series bodies were the cameras of choice for quite a lot of wedding photographers. The EOS R5 is the company's mirrorless analog to the beloved 5D, but it brings with it a variety of major improvements and new features. Is it the next bread and butter camera for wedding photographers? This excellent video review takes a look at the camera from a wedding photographer's perspective and how it holds up in demanding environments. 

Coming to you from Alex Barrera, this great video review takes a look at the Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera. No doubt, the 5D series was the camera of choice for a wide variety of wedding photographers for good reason: the bodies had great autofocus capabilities, good ISO performance, and were highly reliable. For stills work, the EOS R5 brings a number of improvements over the 5D series, including eye autofocus capabilities, a higher-resolution sensor, lightning-fast burst rates, and more. And of course, one of the best parts is that you can use your existing library of EF lenses with an adapter with no loss in performance. Altogether, the EOS R5 looks like quite a great camera. Check out the video above for Barrera's full thoughts on it.

The Sony A9 is still the best camera for wedding photography.

There's always one that's triggered.

All these ‘is [insert camera] the best for...’ discussions are pretty pointless. Camera choice is quite an individual preference. There are wedding photographers who swear by their APS-C Fujifilm cameras and even a few Leica M wedding photographers embracing their manual lenses. Of course the R5 will be great for weddings, just as many other cameras will be equally great.

Yep! And so is the R6, the D850, the GFX50s, the XT4, the A7RIV, etc. They all take really nice photos IF the operator knows what he/she is doing.
