Canon EOS R5 Records 4 Hours 4KHQ At 30p Video Externally With Some Simple Tricks

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

The Canon EOS R5 can record up to 4 hours of 4KHQ video at 30p with an external recorder, if you know some simple tweaks.

The tweaks have been discovered by No Life, and are documented in the video below. Wayne of No Life says:

The Canon R5 does not seem to overheat, externally, if you don’t have any cards in the camera. In this video I show (with as much proof as I can), how I’m able to record up to 4 hours in 4KHQ 30fps, 10-bit CLOG, with IBIS and DPAF all on, with no issues like the blackout or screen off issue myself and Gerald were having.

The setup here is as follows – HDMI out of Canon R5, into Atomos, out of Atomos, into ATEM, out of ATEM, into OBS on the PC. This is no different that Geralds livestreaming setup, and showcasing the times you can expect as if you were recording on the Atomos. This was to record for this long period of time, without the MASSIVE Atomos file, and still show the camera was in fact running for the entire time.

The EOS R5 seems to be highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6.

Canon Has Been Hacked And Hit By Ransomware, 10TB Data Stolen

Coronavirus Covid-19 Ransomware

Canon has been attacked by the Maze ransomware group. Many Canon sites are affected.

As BleepingComputer reports, numerous Canon services have been affected, including Canon’s email, Microsoft Teams, the Canon USA website, and other internal applications. These Canon related domains have been affected:

www.canonusa.com
www.canonbroadcast.com
b2cweb.usa.canon.com
canondv.com
canobeam.com
canoneos.com
bjc8200.com

BleepingComputer was able to obtain a partial screenshot of the ransom note:

Reports BleepingComputer about Maze and the attack against Canon:

After contacting the ransomware operators, BleepingComputer was told by Maze that their attack was conducted this morning when they stole “10 terabytes of data, private databases etc” as part of the attack on Canon […]

Maze is an enterprise-targeting human-operated ransomware that compromises and stealthily spreads laterally through a network until it gains access to an administrator account and the system’s Windows domain controller.

During this process, Maze will steal unencrypted files from servers and backups and upload them to the threat actor’s servers.

Once they have harvested the network of anything of value and gain access to a Windows domain controller, Maze will deploy the ransomware throughout the network to encrypt all of the devices.

If a victim does not pay the ransom, Maze will publicly distribute the victim’s stolen files on a data leak site that they have created.

Maze has claimed responsibility for other high-profile victims in the past, including LG, Xerox, Conduent, MaxLinear, Cognizant, Chubb, VT San Antonio Aerospace, the City of Pensacola, Florida, and more.

The Canon USA site is still down. It seems this attack is not related to the image.canon outage of a few days ago. Canon released a statement to BleepingComputer, saying they are “currently investigating the situation.”

Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 Review – Good Cameras & Terrible Marketing?

Canon Eos R5 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 review by a respected Youtuber.

Coming from Gerald Undone, the Canon EOS R6 and EOS R5 review below states that the R5 and R6 “are great photo cameras with important video improvements over previous models, but they’ve been marketed incorrectly“.

Gerald was among the first to confirm that the R5 abd R6’s video recording times were as declared by Canon.

The EOS R5 seems to be highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6.

Canon EOS M7 and EOS M50 Mark II To Be Announced In 2020?

Canon Eos M7 Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

Here is a follow up on the rumor about the new Canon EOS M cameras that might be announced in 2020, the EOS M7 and EOS M50 Mark II.

The Canon EOS M7 might be Canon’s next flagship in the EOS M lineup.

Along with the EOS M7 Canon might also release a “higher-end” EF-M lens”. The fact that Canon’s next EOS M flagship has a “7” in its moniker doesn’t automatically mean it’s intended to replace the EOS 7D Mark II, which might be the last of its kind.

No surprise Canon is set to release a successor to their highly popular EOS M50. The EOS M50 Mark II might also be announced in Q4 2020. Unfortunately, no rumored specifications here but we are pretty sure IBIS will be featured also on the EOS M50 Mark II.

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

image.canon Is Live Again, Confirms Some Files Got Lost

Image.canon

image.canon is up and running again after being unreachable for almost a week. Canon confirms that some of the photo and video image files got lost.

Canon released this statement:

Important user update concerning image.canon

August 4, 2020

Thank you for using image.canon.

On July 30, 2020, we identified an issue involving the 10GB long-term storage on image.canon. In order to conduct further investigation, we temporarily suspended both the mobile application and web browser service of image.canon. After the investigation, we identified that some of the photo and video image files saved in the 10GB long-term storage prior to June 16, 2020 9:00am (JST) were lost. We confirmed that the still image thumbnails of the affected files were not affected, and there was no leak of image data.

After having resolved the issue that resulted in the loss of the photo and video image files, we resumed the image.canon service as of August 4, 2020.

Currently, the still image thumbnails of these lost image files can be viewed but not downloaded or transferred. If a user tries to download or transfer a still image thumbnail file, an error message may be received. We are currently exploring technical counter measures.

Automatic transfer of still image and video files from EOS R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras, as well as the instant uploads from compatible Canon cameras is also available.

Canon contact details can be found here: image.canon/st/supported-countries.html.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
