    @gt3rs incredible footage, just wow!
    I've sold my R6 so I'm in the market for a new camera. S5II is on my radar but lens choice and system familiarity will probably keep me locked to Canon. Logical step was R6II but it is selling for 2900€ which is crazy considering I can get a brand new (grey import) R5 for 3200€ or an R5C for 3500€. Very little price difference in between these two currently.
    I can't make up my mind though. R5 has got IBIS which is quite important to me and good battery life. And since the latest firmware there are no longer major overheat issues. Still some time limits though and I remember @herein2020 saying he had all kinds of quirks with his copy including major EVF lag.
    Everything else I prefer on R5C, namely LUT support which is a game changer in quick-turnaround workflow for me and the separate stills/cine menus. I'm just concerned with absence of IBIS and the dreadful battery life.
    I think you have both R5 & R5C but prefer R5C I assume mainly for 8K60p? 
    I have very little use for that but I guess its still an added bonus.
    Any other reasons why R5C is superior to R5 (aside from the cine OS extras)?
    PS: R3 has also gone down on grey market (4600€) and really sounds like a good pro option. Stacked sensor. 6K60p RAW is plenty enough.  IBIS. Extensive battery life. Vertical grip might even come in handy for vertical video shooting which I'm doing more & more. Plus who knows I could maybe develop sports/action career !

    Nice trailer. Witty, snappy dialogues, good rhythm and acting. Shot with the Sony FX6?:) It sounds goot too.:)

    Trailer for the film
    I'm the producer and cinematographer for the short film RE:ACTING, a film that is right now being submitted to festivals around the world. We shot this film last summer and I think we ended up with a very high-end result despite our low budget.
    I figured that some of you other filmmakers who are either starting out or are looking for inspiration for how to shoot a film with a limited budget would be interested in some of the things I learned along the way so I'm making a series of blog posts where I will break down how we shot the scenes, why we shot them in this way and also give a producer's perspective on how we secured locations and managed logistics.
    Part 1 in this series of posts breaks down this scene and talks about why we shot it like we did and why we ended up shooting it this way.
    Read more about it in this blog post and comment if you have any follow-up questions!

    Same setting later in the gloomy day, but the VR180 video is based on 8KDCI RAW clips. DeBayered in the Canon VR Utility program to REC709. H264 8bit rendered clips merged losslessly.

    Emanuel reacted to markr041 in R5C VR Test Footage (with Canon 5.2mm 2.8L Fisheye VR Lens)   
    Here is a test video from the Canon R5, shooting in 8K DCI All-I Clog3 and using Canon's VR Utility with its built-in Clog3 LUT. I outputted 8K H264 8bit from the utility. Clips were losslessly merged, injected with VR180 metadata, and uploaded to YouTube.
    It is a true 3D VR180 video, but you can only see the 3D with a suitable VR headset. Without that it is 2D but you can still look around with your mouse (PC) or by moving your phone.
    The video should be 4K, but it is not yet.

    The Canon VR180 utilities have been revised to work with RAW video, including 8K 60P RAW. 
    Also more render options, including high bitrate HEVC 4:4:4 for Windows computers.
    Now you can use other R cameras with the lens.
    And more.

    I wish we had some idea of sales numbers. Even accounting for the hype, it seems like this will be a very successful camera for Pannyboy. It'd be interesting to see what the sales numbers are like vs. their other cameras, and between the II and the IIX.

    The USB-SSD recording and IP streaming are also unique to the S5iiX. If there's any chance you'll someday want the $200 raw upgrade to the regular S5ii, it's worth just ponying up at the start and getting the S5iiX for these extras IMO.

    Yep, that is the only consideration to make. For just 200 more, the S5 II X seems to be the best way to go. I honestly would have expected them to have external raw options in the S5 II since the s5 already has prores and b-raw support.

    It looks like you will be able to upgrade the S5II to get some (but not all) of the features of the S5II X.
     
    Also Geeky Nerdy Tech is in Australia, where it's summer, and says there's no overheating issues, which is nice.

    Keep in mind that those same YouTubers will keep saying over and over again how they aren't being paid for the review...  but also that they all know that if they don't say mostly nice things about the camera, they won't get free flights/hotels in Japan, a loaner camera + $20k in loaner lenses, or have a camera to make a video before launch day the next time.

    The reviews are biased and are part of the Panasonic sales strategy.  Wait until real users and smaller channels start receiving the camera.  Right now, it's all part of a hype machine to drive preorders.  Panasonic have a long history of delivering excellent hybrid cameras and there's no reason to think that this one will be any different, but NEVER trust launch day YouTube reviews for any camera.

    Again, I won't post the video cause I know Andrew isn't fond of him, but Kai W. also did tests with the Sigma adapter and Canon EF lenses and the results were excellent. It's at about the 22 minute mark in his video. Quite impressive.

    Exactly!! These early first "reviews" all say that AF performance is very very close, with Sony only marginally ahead. (and with Sony being by far a bigger sponsor overall, you have to wonder how much unconscious bias might be going on....)
    And we all know it often takes a lot of time to get the most out of an AF system, to know all its quirks and settings. Thousands of people have been spending hundreds of thousands of hours using and figuring out Sony AF over the last few years.
    While the S5mk2 isn't even shipping yet.
    Wouldn't shock me if after a year of people using the S5mk2, learning and understanding it, that perhaps Panasonic AF comes out on top as #1 now.
    But anyway... why even care, we're arguing over the last 0.1% of AF performance? We're splitting hairs.
    I think it is time to agree there are now more important things to consider about a camera than the AF!
    Yup, Canon made a move for their short term benefit that will long term harm them. 
      
    Bingo! When Panasonic's AF is beating what was just a few short years ago the "amazingly best AF" from Canon, then we know these AF debates can be over. 
    Who cares who exactly has the number one spot in this exact moment in time, be it Sony/Canon/Nikon/Panasonic/whoever? It's like caring if the Nikon D4 or Canon 1D X has the better AF for photography?? That kind of debate between photographers ceased to be relevant to 99% of us! And now it looks like we're reaching that point in autofocus for videographers as well?

    Here is a test made without it on the inexpensive RF 24mm f/1.8.
     
    It's not the R5C but just for the sake of it shows how it does the job done though, eventually more suitable than any wobble/jerky artifacts for poor handheld work anyway.
