Among all that hilarious and heated EOS R5 overheating discussion, here is a Canon EOS R5 review that examines the R5 as a still camera.
Gordon Laing reviewed the Canon EOS R5 as a camera for still photography, and says it’s “Canon’s best camera for stills photography to date“. Gordon is a renowned camera reviewer in the community. The video review below is exhaustive and delivers a lot of information about the EOS R5. Enjoy.
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.
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.
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.
Coming from Christopher Frost Photography, the 8 minutes review below praises the lesns and wants to see if “potentially incredible, flagship portrait lens” is really “good enough to justify its incredibly high price [$2,599]”. Is it?
More Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L review stuff is listed here. All reviews praise this outstanding lens.
Coming from Jared Polin the video review below deals with the performance of the Canon EOS R5 human eye AF system, and it seems to be nothing short of amazing. Jared Polin thinks “it’s time for Sony to take notice of what Canon has been able to do“.
