image.canon Is Down, Some Photos And Videos Have Been Lost

Image.canon

Well, this is not good marketing for Canon’s cloud platform image.canon.

Not only is the portal down since 4 days, but as it appears by a statement by Canon itself “[s]ome of the original photo and video data files have been lost”. At the time of writing it is not clear what caused the site to be down and the loss of data. Canon refers to “an issue within the 10GB long term storage on image.canon” but is not clear what exactly it means or what caused the issue.

Important Notice

Thank you for using image.canon.

On the 30th of July, we identified an issue within the 10GB long term storage on image.canon. Some of the original photo and video data files have been lost. We have confirmed that the still image thumbnails of the affected files have not been affected.

In order to conduct further review, we have temporarily suspended both the mobile app and web browser service of image.canon.

Information regarding the resumption of service and contact information for customer support will be made available soon.

There has been no leak of image data.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Canon EOS R5 Review – IBIS Is Incredible, Best-in-class

Canon Eos R5 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R5 review. Good thing not everyone is wasting his time on the ridiculous overheating issue.

No Life posted a rather comprehensive review about how (well) IBIS (In Body Image Stabiisation) works on the new Canon EOS R5. He says:

The Canon R5’s long awaited “next-gen” IBIS is best-in-class, and well worth the wait. And you’ll see there are no “wobbles”. Why aren’t more people talking about how insane it is we have a 4K, FF camera, with 10-bit, flip out screen, and best in class AF / IBIS?

The review examines the interplay between IBIS and OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation, i.e. the image stabilization inside the lens), which seems to be a major achievement by Canon.

Not the first reviewer praising the EOS R5 IBIS system. Don’t believe the conspiracy fantasies, instead focus on the innovative technology featured on the EOS R5.

First Serious Test Shows There Is No Canon EOS R5 Overheating Issue

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

If you buy a car that’s stated to make 600 miles with a tank of gas and doesn’t go as far as, let’s say, 900 miles, are you then saying this car has a distance issue?

Most likely you would not, and most likely you would consider it nothing but a joke even talking about a distance issue. So why does the Canon EOS R5 have an overheating issue when its mileage is exactly as described by Canon?

As you’ll see, the Canon EOS R5 has no overheating issue. It gets hot, very hot, because computing and storing 4K and 8K footage produces a lot of heat. Nevertheless, you can’t say there is an issue if the measured figures compare with those declared by Canon. A first test from a reviewer we consider to be serious, shows that there is no Canon EOS R5 overheating issue as suggested by some folks.

Gerald Undone published his test results on Twitter, and the recording times he got are very close to those stated by Canon. Below you see first Gerald Undone’s results and then Canon’s documented recording times for different video modes.

Gerald Undone’s tested recording times

As you can see, the Canon EOS R5 behaves as advertised and documented in the user manual. Gerald also reports that a full recovery from heat, in order to get the tested recording times again, is of 2 hours for 100% and 1 hour for 60%. Gosh this little camera gets hot!

Sadly, now some people is even suggesting that Canon has delayed the EOS R5 and might recall it because of the “overheating issue“. Utterly crap. Canon USA released a statement to address these fantasies.

I’m eager to see more serious Canon EOS R5 tests done by serious people.

Canon EOS R5 Review (best IBIS tested on FF camera, DPReview)

Canon Eos R5 Review

DPReview TV posted their Canon EOS R5 review. They say its IBIS system is the best they “played along with” on a full frame camera.

The reviewers are rather fond of the Canon EOS R5 and its many innovative features. They obviously also talk about the much discussed overheating on the Canon EOS R5. as far as I understood by watching the video, the reviewers got more or less the recording times stated by Canon. No surprise here. Also it is no surprise that the EOS R5 is not the tool for hour-long 8K video production. Unfortunately, at a certain point it seems the reviewer confuse the EOS R5 with a professional high-res broadcasting camera. Nevertheless, a review that’s definitely worth to watch.

Canon Responds To Clickbaiter’s Crap: No EOS R5 Delay Because Of Overheating

Canon EOS R5 Review

A Canon EOS R5 delay? Unless you were living under a rock you probably heard of the EOS R5 fantasies some sites are propagating.

People is suggesting Canon might recall the EOS R5 because of an “overheating issue” and deliver a new batch in November.

That’s all crap and we wrote about this and other hilarious EOS R5/EOS R6 conspiracy theories.

It didn’t take long for Canon to answer. Some of the allegations produced by the issue theorists are just absurd and those propagating them are quite frankly ridiculous in their endeavor and efforts, and irresponsible too.

However, DPReview got a statement by Canon addressing the motley fantasies that have been put around:

‘Orders of the EOS R5 are scheduled to be delivered as initially stated at launch. The first set of cameras shipped from our warehouses this week. We eagerly await the content that will be produced by talented creatives using this camera to be shared with the world.’

Furthermore, Canon told DPReview that the EOS R5 “shipping is as scheduled right now, with no delays“.

Yes, the EOS R5 is shipping and being delivered. Hopefully that’s not too shocking for those selling the recall-because-of-overheating fantasy. And if you take the time to scroll the forums and Discord chats you’ll see that a lot of people already got their EOS R5 unit, even on forums associated with the sites that are propagating the EOS R5 delay and recall propaganda.

Stay tuned, the comedy is not over yet.
