He surely deserves an applause for the commitment :)
Ah yeah, the winner is of course the Olympus E-M1III. Sony should buy Olympus just to learn how to to proper image stabilization!
I know there were many who instantly overhyped the overheating issues and some who simply said this isn’t an issue. But for me personally this is the first time I realize that indeed there is a real issue on the new EOS-R5-R6 camera. Cinema5D tested the camera in a real world scenario and was very disappointed:
Tony Northrup is doing everything possible to be hated by the Canon folks :)
Joke aside he made the first in depth test of the overheating “problem” of the EOS-R5. In 8k30p when used outside under direct sun the camera did shut down around 15 minutes (which is 5min less than the “official” Canon mentioned limit).
It’s fun how the Internet keeps hitting hard on the EOS-R5. Somehow the Canon Cripple Hammer did come into action the very last minute :)
Tony Northrup sums up the “potential!” problems with the EOS-R5:
Don’t worry Canonistas, as soon as the Sony A7sIII comes out the Internet will start to bash the Sony :)
8K wow….4k120fps wow! On paper this EOS-R5 is a super camera. But how does this translate in the reality? Canon upfront disclosed that there are some serious limitations. For example you can only shoot 8K video for 20minutes at room temperature. Which means that if you shoot outside under direct sunshine or in a hot day you might not be able to shoot 8K at all. Also the cooling time is quite long and will only allow you to shoot even shorter videos after (see tab on top).
Max Yuryev explained it well:
This is not to downplay Canon merits. But it should be clear to everyone that if you wanna do some more “serious” video work this camera might NOT be for you!
