A leader in digital imaging solutions – Canon has once again proven its prowess with its full-frame mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS R5 winning ‘Best Camera of 2021’ at the recently concluded Future Tech Awards.

The Future Tech Awards were announced at CES 2022, the world’s largest tech trade show held in Las Vegas in January.

The winners of the Future Choice Awards were nominated and chosen by leading experts in technology fields, including Digital Camera World, TechRadar, T3, Tom’s Guide, iMore and Android Central.

Despite fierce competition, Canon’s powerful body was the clear favourite, being described as “simply Canon’s best product to date” by the Future Choice Awards jury. The Canon EOS R5 comes with a 45MP full-frame CMOS sensor with 20fps burst shooting with continuous AF, full-frame 12-bit internal cinematic 8K RAW video, and an advanced autofocus system that uses Deep Learning to track people, animals and vehicles.
