The Canon EOS R5 C has been rejected for Netflix Certification. This means Netflix has rejected the Canon EOS R5C for production certification. Also Canon doesn’t have any intention to address the issue like Sony did with the FX3.
Neither Netflix or Canon has spoken directly on why the camera was denied, but the only thing we think that the camera lacks Canon Log-2. There may be some other image quality reason that we don’t know about. The Canon EOS R5C seems to have every other feature required by Netflix for certification.
For all the wedding videographers, drone camera operators, and multimedia journalists who have professional photo still and cinema video production needs, get ready for a new type of shooting experience with the EOS R5 C Mirrorless Cinema Camera from Canon.
There are some interesting reports that Canon EOS R5 C (Amazon/B&HPhoto/Adorama) sales were halted in Australia because of some issue with the camera. The rumor states, Canon Australia was ordered by Canon Inc to halt Canon EOS R5 C sales. Apparently, a mail by Canon Australia is making the rounds. The Canon rumor cites “some issues” with the EOS R5 C without specifying them.
In an email sent to us (thank you), we received an email that Canon Australia has sent out stating that Canon Inc has asked them to halt sales of the Canon EOS R5C.
The email alludes that this is happening because of some issue with the camera. They mention in the email “I’d like to reassure you that there are no health and safety issues with the camera however, we want to ensure that the product is of the highest standard from a quality perspective.”
