Canon EOS R5 Review – Electronic Shutter Useful For Action Photography?

Canon Eos R5 Review 8k Video Firmware Updste

Spoiler alert: no EOS R5 overheating issue when using the electronic shutter.

Here is a Canon EOS R5 review that focuses on a particular feature of the camera: the electronic shutter and how well it suits for action/bird/sport photography.

Jan Wegener discusses these topics in his 15 minutes video below.

Rolling shutter or not? That’s the big question. If there is a rolling shutter effect with the Canon EOS R5, how bad is it and does it make sense to use the electronic shutter for action bird photography? A lot of you asked me this question, so I tested it out and will share my findings with you today and share when I think it makes sense to use the electronic shutter and when it’s best not to use it.

Whatever, the EOS R5 seems to be highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the EOS R5 autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards.
