Discover how to create immersive three-dimensional content using a compatible Full Frame EOS camera and the RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens, while embracing a more efficient and simpler workflow with the EOS VR SYSTEM.
With compatible Full Frame, RF mount cameras, such as the EOS R5 / R5 C and its stunning high-resolution sensor, it is now easier to set up and shoot for stereoscopic 180° VR. Simply attach the RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens to a supported camera with the appropriate firmware, choose your desired camera settings and immerse yourself in a whole new world of virtual content creation.
Use the latest versions of Canon’s EOS Utility (for a cabled connection) or Camera Connect (for mobile wireless connection), to remotely set-up and control the camera, while also being able to see a side-by-side dual fisheye or equirectangular live preview.
What was once a complex process of alignment, synchronisation and stitching with multiple camera/file systems, is now made infinitely easier thanks to Canon’s EOS VR Utility1, (supporting Canon RAW with supported cameras, including 8K RAW LT/60P from the EOS R5 C), which makes conversion of the stereoscopic footage and stills for editing and playback, a much more efficient process. You can even import and automatically convert Canon’s VR footage (MP4) direct into Adobe Premiere Pro1, by using Canon’s EOS VR Plug-in.
Canon’s EOS VR Utility can do basic cropping of your Canon VR video files, before conversion. However, for greater control over the grade and edit, for more professional productions, then use Adobe Premier Pro by importing the converted files from the EOS VR Utility, or simply use the EOS VR plug-in for Adobe Premier Pro to import and convert your EOS VR files in one process.
Canon’s EOS VR SYSTEM offers a faster and more efficient way from input to output, to create stunning, professional stereoscopic 180° VR content.
Enables compatible high resolution, RF mount cameras such as the EOS R5/R5 C2 to record two images onto its single Full Frame sensor, for a quicker, simpler and more robust camera setup, requiring no camera or lens alignment and synchronisation. Plus, using a single sensor system on a single camera, means that both images exhibit the same colour response and exposure characteristics, and by default, all the camera settings will be exactly the same, meaning less time needed in post-production to make the left and right images match.
Capturing both the left and right eye images onto one sensor, enables the recording of the already aligned and synchronised images into one file. This simplifies file management for equirectangular conversion (requiring no additional processes for stitching of multiple images/files) and export to various professional codecs, ready for playback or further editing in an NLE timeline.
Utilising an EOS camera such as the EOS R5/R5 C, with its 8K sensor, enables operators to shoot with a more familiar and flexible camera system, while having the ability to shoot Canon Log/Log3, providing images with both a high resolution and wide dynamic range for footage with a greater sense of immersion and realism in the final output.
May require the latest firmware update for VR compatibility.
