Canon EOS R5 Review And Comparison With EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon EOS R5 Review

Here is an interesting Canon EOS R5 review for commercial and portrait photography, and it comes with a comparison to the EOS 5D Mark IV.

The comparison with the EOS 5D Mark IV makes a lot of sense, not least because Canon sees the EOS R5 as a mirrorless alternative to the 5D series. The exhaustive Canon EOS R5 review comes from John Gress:

After using the R5 for a full month as a professional commercial studio and portrait photographer, who shoots some video, I have decided to fully switch from the 5D Mark IV. It took me a while to test everything from auto focus, to tethering to video (including overheating) and how to get the best color out of the new RAW files. This video also covers post production in DPP (Digital Photo Professional), Lightroom and Capture One 20.

Is The Canon EOS R5 Firmware Update A Game Changer?

Canon Eos R5 Firmware

Canon released a Canon EOS R5 firmware update. While it will likely not calm down the most exalted anti Canonites, it seems to excite others.

No Life makes the bold claim that the Canon EOS R5 firmware update is a game changer. While we do not think it is a game changer (the R5 is), it’s true that it enhances video recording times. See for yourself in the video below.

Canon EOS R6 Review -A Great Photographers’ Camera (DPReview)

Canon Eos R6 Review

DPReview posted their Canon EOS R6 review.

They say it’s “not the hybrid king, but a great photographers’ camera“. From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS R6 is an easy camera to underestimate if you’ve only read or heard about it. You can look at its much-discussed video or resolution shortcomings and imagine it’s a near miss. But when you go out shooting with it, particularly for stills photography, it quickly reveals itself as a genuinely excellent camera.

Its 20MP sensor is a little lower in resolution than its peers but not to a degree that makes any appreciable difference. Its low light performance is very good and its dynamic range gives you plenty of flexibility when it comes to processing.

[…]

The R6 is a little less sure-footed when it comes to video. The specs are impressive, the separation of stills and video settings is well thought through and the autofocus is very good. However, while the 40-or-so minute time limit on 4K capture sounds like plenty, any use of the camera starts to chip away at that total, meaning it can restrict your videography more than you might expect. This and the significant rolling shutter means it’s not quite a strong a video tool as the specs seem to imply. Again, though, the results are frequently very impressive.

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

Canon Eos R5 Review

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.
