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.

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.
