    Stronz got a reaction from Juank in Canon Cinema EOS C70 - Ah that explains it then!   
    The R5 was primed to be near perfect - on paper it had everything people wanted for a reasonable price and then Canon went and throttled it.
    So instead they offer this, “a proper video camera” with essentially the same form factor but smaller sensor, no ibis, no viewfinder, and looks like no flip screen?
    So you’re paying $2,000 more for what? Built in NDs and the permission to use the camera without it locking down due to “overheating”?
    I’m curious what about this C70 is better than what the R5 should have been?

    Stronz got a reaction from newfoundmass in Canon EOS R5 so-called overheat timer defeated by a single screw in battery door   
    The thought of spending $4,000 on a camera and having to deal with all this nonsense, just to get the features Canon markets on the box...it's appalling. What's even more tragic is the people still making excuses. Canon could have delivered the goods and made everyone happy but they botched it.

    Being able to save the clip is the critical next step but definitely looks/sounds more like a timer than true communication and limitations from a thermometer. Since we know the internals do heat up to 65C/150F, it'll be interesting to see who pushes this to the limit and the resulting damage (if there is any) after prolonged use. Perhaps with a timer exploit + proper thermal management via hardware mod, you'd actually have the functional camera Canon should have delivered in the first place.

    Stronz reacted to Cliff Totten in Canon EOS R5 overheated in my fridge! After just 60 JPEGs! (4 °C ambient)   
    I refuse to believe Connot would be THIS underhanded. I'm sure it really IS a true heat problem and NOT a software programmed timer. What programmer would do this in the office, go home at the end of the day and still be able to sleep at night? 
    I think the problem is probably with your fridge. There is prolly something wrong with it. Can you test with a freezer instead?

    Whenever someone defends the R5 because of "45MP" remind them that the R6 is just 20MP and has the same issues.

    This is dead on.
    And people would have paid $1000 extra for the this “R5 C” just because it’s a Canon and had 8K RAW and 4K120p with the autofocus and clog3.

    It's really true. Or just charge an extra $1000 and put in a fan and have unlimited recording times. People would have bought it. I would have bought it and then probably would have bought a Canon cinema camera (the ones they are trying to protect) to go along with it once the RF versions are released.
    Instead, I think I'll stick with Panasonic for awhile.

    Canon could have released a EOS R5 to compete against Sony A7R IV... for stills.
    It has the slightly soft 4K pixel binned mode like the Sony does, but in 10bit.
    That's not too shabby.
    Then, release an EOS R5 C, with all the video bells and whistles enabled and properly functional.
    For some strange reason they decided to go full beans with the 8K RAW and 4k 120p only to not let us use them! Marketing tick boxes only!
    Why bother engineering these features if they are not going to be usable by the intended customers?
    And how in any way would a mirrorless camera cannibalise sales of a $15,000 full frame C500?

    The recording time charts don't take into account the time spent in live-view or menus.
    So at some point during the first 40 minutes of the day, you will be looking at a 5 min limit in 4HQ instead... and then 0 mins.
    Unless you work like this:
    Shoot a 30 min continuous shot. Power down camera for 2 hours.
    Come back and shoot another 30 mins. Power down for 2 hours.
    Nobody works like this.

    Meanwhile, the EOS R is looking like the Phantom Menace of cameras. Initially greeted with widespread groans and people saying "We waited all those years for THIS?", only for people to quickly soften their opinions on it after being even more disappointed with what came next.

    It feels like the industry as a whole has some kind of collective Stockholm Syndrome with Canon. Why do we want them to be better? Why do we want them to fix their clearly intentional choice? Why do we want to pay them money when they clearly don't care to earn it?
    Sony and Panasonic have been pushing the limits of hybrids for over a decade and yet many people are still hoping and praying Canon releases a patch or a fix for the R5 & R6. If you put your faith in Canon, prepare to be disappointed.
