Eos R5 Vs Eos R6 Review

Want to learn about the differences between the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6? Here is the EOS R5 vs EOS R6 comparison you need.

Kevin Raposo compares the Canon EOS R5 vs EOS R6. A very detailed breakdown of more than 20 aspects that differentiate the two cameras. Enjoy.

I have the impression the EOS R6 flies a bit under the radar and doesn’t get the attention it deserves. There are many features that the R6 shares with the EOS R5, a class leading autofocus system for instance, and the R6 has an imaging sensor derived not less than from the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III.

Canon EOS R5c Announcement At The Beginning of 2022?

Canon Rumors Canon EOS R5c

We didn’t get the Canon EOS R3, despite all the rumors pointing to an imminent announcement. But despair not: here is a Canon EOS R5c rumor for you.

The EOS R5c would be the cinema/movie making version of the EOS R5. Rumor-wise the EOS R5c got little attention. Canon Rumors reports with confidence that the EOS R5c might get announced in Q1 2022. The rumor also suggests that the announcement was postponed after a scheduled October 2021 release.

While getting most of the features of the Canon EOS R5, the EOS R5c might also sport:

  • active cooling
  • slightly different form factor
  • more codecs for video recording
  • full-size HDMI port.

Still a long time to go for an announcement in Q1 2022. Stay tuned.

Here Is The First Commercial Canon EOS R5 Cooling Mod, Doubles 8K Times

Eos R5 Cooling

It had to come sooner or later, now here it is. The first commercial Canon EOS R5 cooling modification.

Kolari Vision known for filters and camera mods, announced their Canon EOS R5 cooling mod. Kolari claims that their mod doubles 8K video recording times and cuts recovery time by 66% at normal environment temperatures. Sounds impressing. Have a look at the table below. Kolari claims that with an environment temperature of 15°C (59 Fahrenheit) you’ll no longer get a time limit when recording 8K. At 20°C (69 Fahrenheit) you get 44 minutes and 25 minutes after recovery. Not bad, eh? However, as PetaPixel underlines, the mod will likely void your warranty.

Says Kolari Vision:

When the R5 was released, we also learned that it overheats quickly in 8K shooting and in some 4K modes. Initially this was handled through a timer chip in the camera independent of actual temperature.  After public backlash, Canon quickly released a new firmware that patched the timer issue and started actually using the camera temperature data instead, but even with this upgrade the performance boost was minor, for example at 20C instead of overheating after around 19 minutes, the new firmware allowed you to shoot around 25 minutes, and the recovery after overheating.

In several thermal analyses of the camera, the processor on the motherboard seemed to generate most of the heat. In the stock design, Canon places two thermal pads partially over the processor and pumps the heat into a small heatsink. That heatsink however sits under another board and does not vent heat anywhere further.

To remedy this problem, we took an R5 apart and designed a new heatsink to vent the heat from the processor to the camera case where it could dissipate faster. We tested aluminum initially, but eventually settled on a thick copper heatsink to transfer heat more efficiently.

This design draws heat out of the processor and brings it around the motherboard and out to the rear case where it transfers heat through a high efficiency thermal pad. This design is fully internal to the camera and maintains the weather sealing of the camera.

We tested the modified camera at 8K-D IPB 30FPS at 59F (15C) and 69F (20C). At 15C, the R5 never overheated in our hands. At 20C, where the stock camera last around 25 minutes, after our mod the camera lasts 44 minutes, almost two times the initial shooting duration. What’s even more important, is that the camera recovered a lot faster after it did overheat, giving more shooting time after a short recovery. With the stock camera, we could only get about 8 minutes of additional shooting after a 5 minute recovery, where the mod was able to shoot 25 minutes after the same 5 minute recovery, a 3 times faster overheating recovery.

Head over to Kolari Vision for the whole story…

Kolari offers a modification service for your Canon EOS R5 at the price of $400. You can also buy an already modified EOS R5 at $4,440. Instructions for DIY aficionados will follow later this year.

Canon EOS R5 Overheating Soap Opera – A User Made Issue?

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

Let’s go back to one of the most hilarious attacks on a new Canon camera I’ve ever seen. The infamous Canon EOS R5 overheating issue.

If you follow us on Canon Watch you likely know that we always thought (and said) that it wasn’t a real issue, and that Canon had disclosed very transparently the limits for 4K and 8K video on the EOS R5. Needless to say that it never was an issue for those taking stills. At the end of the day it depends on how much you push the R5. The whole overheating hysteria was started by the usual suspects, a bunch of Canon hating video guys who always attack Canon’s new cameras.

Deaf Director posted his Canon EOS R5 review, and talks about the EOS R5 overheating issue. In his own words: “A real world look at the Canon R5’s overheating issues after 8 months of continuous use, and tips for how you can work around it.”
