Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 For Video Review (don’t underestimate the R6)

Canon Eos R6 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 review that examines how well both cameras do for video.

Dan Watson did a rather extensive comparison on the EOS R6 vs EOS R5 for video work with a lot of real world shooting, side by side tests in every resolution/frame rate, low light, and of course, he had to look at overheating issue as well. A good review and we recommend it. Don’t underestimate the EOS R6!

The EOS R5 seems to be highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6.

This Guy Tore Down The Canon EOS R5 And Made Some Modifications

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

Someone wanted to see how the Canon EOS R5 looks on the inside and so he tore it down.

A Chinese guy (an engineer?) tore down the Canon EOS R5. He applied thermal paste on the CPU in order to dissipate more heath. It’s not clear from the video if this solution works but it is cool to see how the R5 looks inside.

The EOS R5 seems to be a remarkable and highly regarded stills camera. In particular, the autofocus system is a huge leap forwards. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6.

Canon EOS R5 Records 4 Hours 4KHQ At 30p Video Externally With Some Simple Tricks

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

The Canon EOS R5 can record up to 4 hours of 4KHQ video at 30p with an external recorder, if you know some simple tweaks.

The tweaks have been discovered by No Life, and are documented in the video below. Wayne of No Life says:

The Canon R5 does not seem to overheat, externally, if you don’t have any cards in the camera. In this video I show (with as much proof as I can), how I’m able to record up to 4 hours in 4KHQ 30fps, 10-bit CLOG, with IBIS and DPAF all on, with no issues like the blackout or screen off issue myself and Gerald were having.

The setup here is as follows – HDMI out of Canon R5, into Atomos, out of Atomos, into ATEM, out of ATEM, into OBS on the PC. This is no different that Geralds livestreaming setup, and showcasing the times you can expect as if you were recording on the Atomos. This was to record for this long period of time, without the MASSIVE Atomos file, and still show the camera was in fact running for the entire time.
