PetaPixel: Canon is Delaying EOS R5 Shipments Due to Overheating Concerns

PetaPixel collected reports saying stating that Canon is delaying the EOS-R5 shipments to have some time to fix the overheating issue. It’s unclear how they plan to do it:

  1. They could make some hardware change but this sounds both expensive and time consuming
  2. They could go the “Sony way” and just add a software option to let the camera overheat with little concern about durability

On a positive note for Canon. The EOS-R5 stills image quality is superb and on par with the best Sony and Nikon cameras. Canon no longer seems to lag behind in that aspect:

Canadians are impatient and that’s why Amazon let’s them preorder the Olympus E-M10IV ahead of the announcement :)

Amazon Canada has just decided that Canadians have the right to preorder the new Olympus E-M10IV 1 week ahead of the official announcement :)
