  1. For the hybrid shooting R5 is defintiely better, but if just mainly for video or birding then R7 is much better value. As I said if I didnt have R5 I would go for R7 without a thought.
  2. Oops it was 4k fine mode he tested, R5 last longer than R7 on video overheating, but chew battery faster.
  3. Firmware 1.6 is much better.. shoot a whole night in 4k50p which I never did before and not a single warning, that also what prompted me to cancel my R7 pre-order. The sole purpose of R7 for me was unlimited 4k50p, but after that youtube test turns out R5 can shoot longer than R7 especially on 4k60p on outdoor daylight.
  4. But if I didn't have R5 I will most certainly go for R7 for sure. For majority of the shoot I did R7 ticks a lot of box, I don't think client will see the difference lol 😆
  5. As R5 user I m disagree on that! R5 Have better photo quality, oversampled 4k60p option (non on r7) and 4k120p which have way better quality than 1080p120. Rolling shutter is also less too. Overheating is a history with v1.6 firmware. But that time limit is a bummer for long session recording options.
  6. PD power delivery is a painful plus for me as it is like switching to EV car, but once you are set you be pretty sweet, atm my monitor can power my MacBook Air and R5, Smallrig Vmount with PD-C can power any light, camera that can use vmount, and R5 or power the macbook, and my mi pro PD-C powebank can also power Atem mini (with the right adapter) for completely mobile liveswitching without the need of portable generator.
  7. Excellent write up, but I think the 18-150 does have IS but u can only switch in the camera as there is no switch on lens (same for ef-m one which I had). I hope Canon can fix the wobble like it did with R5/R6 cause that really improves wide angle on handheld.
  8. And with 1.6 Firmware update R5 can record longer 4K Fine than R7 before overheating under the big sun.. intresting.
  9. Yeah! While I am still on my R5 that was bought 2 years ago lol 😆 But seems like he still have FX3? So some camera he just keep I think. I bought R5 mainly for the no overheating on standard 4k, I don't really that 8k or 45mp, but lately on some greenscreen shot i done the 8k is quite useful for controlling spills like woman's hair or wedding veil due to high resolution.
  10. HEVC 4k50p 422 mp4, I only get 40min for fresh lp-e6nh
  11. Interesting he sold the R5C and got R5.
  12. Non of the eos camera can do punch in focus while recording, only cinema lines can do (include r5c). You always hook up to external monitor for punch in zoom while recording That a good value of bonus you got, the place I live didn't have any pre-order bonus (cheap ass!)
  13. The camera show 20min if u put lp-e6 on it
  14. Yeah lol! Seriously if R5 performs like this at first I dont think that many people will get R5C.
  15. I did shoot yesterday all day on 4k50p and some 100p, no overheating symbol once! Soo over the moon with this update! Man if they do that in the first place 2 years ago it will be way different market now.
  16. The new update also fixing the UW wobbling with the digital IS. I think I m gonna cancel the R7 pre-order (still no update from my shop ugh) My R5 is reborn again with this new update.
  17. The one that came today, people getting over 2hrs of 8K without overheating. EOS R5 Firmware Update Version 1.6.0 22nd July 2022 Firmware Version 1.6.0 incorporates the following enhancements: 1. Adds [Auto Power Off Temp.: Standard/High] to the menu for movie recording. When [High] is selected, the camera will not automatically turn off when the temperature of the camera body and card become high, which may allow for longer movie recording than before, depending on the shooting conditions. Note that the temperature of the bottom surface of the camera may increase at this time. 2. Adds the ability to convert multiple HEIF images into multiple JPEG images. 3. Enhances the performance of "Movie Digital IS". It stabilizes the image when taking selfies or walking shots using a wide-angle lens. 4. Fixes minor issues.
  18. Well the new firmware with new temp control for video seems like make R5 really hard to overheat now, people getting really good 8K, 4KHQ and 4K120 recording time to CFExpress. R6 sadly still overheat the same? R3 getting 240fps in FHD which is nice.
  19. Comparison of 4K fine vs lineskip and also 4k60p crop vs non crop
  20. That is the lens I m thinking to pair R7 as well, Meike drop in nd adapter come with clear filter too which is a big plus!
  21. I think R7 does pretty good fight on HQ 4K vs R5C, they both look equally sharp?
  22. I still think a R6C (or with R3 sensor) is actually the most sense for most people than R5C or even R7C. It will be like the A7S of Canon but with oversampled 4k and better lowlight than most Canon offering on video, battery life should better since the chip doesn't have to work very hard on 8K data, and RAW is not ridiculous large since it is only 5K for people like shooting RAW. I recently finished a multicam project that shoot on 4k25/50p with 2 Panna and 2 Canon (500gb data), edit it on the cheapest mba m1 7gpu with 8gb and 256gb ssd and 2tb external ssd. I really pushed very hard on this little Mac lol. I didn't use proxy at all.
  23. I think the R5 is also line skipping 4k60p? For music videos and general content it is totally fine, only when shooting real estate with some textured furniture you can see the pixel edges. That's the only time I can see the inferior 4k60p. And we only shoot RAW on one project, most of the time it's ipb or ipb light since editing ALL-I on Nas drive is totally no go.. it just make us all laggy (that is with 10gb ethernet and ssd priority drive) with 3 editors using at same time.
  24. Your 18-135 have the better motor indeed with nano USM so paired with ND adapter will be very useful for video, I probably gonna use 18-35 1.8 for video work and the 18-150 for travel. I got m6 ii with 18-150 which i plan to sell once I got the r7 with 18-150. R5 with 24-240 is just a tad big/heavy for casual outting/trips for me. R7 with IPB lite you can get away with v30 cards on 4k60p, just photos will be slower if shooting burst on uhs-1 cards. On normal IPB you do need v60 or more or camera will stop recording due to slow speed. I have the breakthrough X4 VND drop in filter which is a lot better than Canon one with no blue colour shift between min to max ND level, that is really nice with 1.4 lens in bright daylight. ( I have to stop down with canon VND or unless you shoot day for night scene lol) Both the 35mm and 85mm's focus speed is not as good as their EF counterpart due to their "macro" feature, but image quality is not bad. I used to have them but only have the RF 16 and 50mm left for much lighter setup. RF 16 will be nice on R7 as it becomes 25mm. I m waiting for the RF 24mm 1.8 which is more useful for me focal length wise (becomes 38mm on R7), you can also go for the 24mm ef-s pancake for a more casual setup.
