  1. I'm so sorry you feel offended by my previous post. As you admit yourself not having any geek knowledge to determine the exact usage a NVMe drive; I was just trying to clarify the post you where sharing. It was, in no way, an attack to the filmmakers community that knows shit about technical stuff but still keep re-posting absurdities. My only goal is to make this great forum a better place with my real life experience (and love.) I always had a commitment to support the filmmaker community. I can only bow to your message and ask you for ultimate forgiveness. please, please.
  2. You are taking sentence out of the context. Yes, a drive is not removable easily from the enclosure and, no you may not swap drive on the fly. It's like saying SSD are not removable media. Still, they are used everyday as removable media cause the interface is something else that what is inside the enclosure. But this system is an enclosure for NVMe drive that will put the heat away from the card reader , allowing cheaper and very large drive capacity. The heat generated by the card can be way easier dissipated than a CFExpress card. I actually have such enclosure for another project,
  3. Great finding, I was looking for such without success few weeks back. I guess t's about market demand versus offer! I did similar test on my DJI Inspire 2 and I did not lost any data writing raw 5K. I'ts also a money saver as you only buying the drive and not the card. This is one way to solve 2 issues at once. USD 150 if you found them online in China. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r. The price will be falling down as soon as competition kicks in.
  4. Like external recorder on top of camera-hand held do not exist? We are not living in the same planet. More people try to explain canon choice, less it makes sense. All Canon explanations was about electronics that can't hold warm temperature since day one. I's call "overheating" on all their documentation for a rason. But as this do not work with the external no limit recording aspect; there is now a new idea floating around about your skin getting burn, but only for internal recording not external cause the camera is on tripod?! And that's why removing the timer is so danger
  5. That explanation do not make sense. When using an external recorder; the camera is also getting super hot and Canon have never limit recording when you do not have a card inside. Without any hack, you can record forever. So any exercise to explain that electronic overheat and need an hour to cool down or that people get burned and other fantasy do not stand when you start talking "external recording" without time limitation. How all electronics inside the R5 will not fries if you keep recording externally for hours under a body that you can barely touch, but suddenly need limitati
  6. Try to find these for CFEcpress? So the card is outside the camera?
  7. Canon Just released a Firmware V1.1.1 for R5 and R6 Be aware of possible lock down on my hack finding last Sunday. Even if I think it will be a very fast answer to roll out a firmware in only 3 days, that's still a possibility. At least, it may be able to do a file comparison between V1.1.0 et V1.1.1 to see what changed is any.
  8. Penta Pi### contacted me and said they will write about it but nothing happens. Gerald Und### too, but so far nothing on his channel. The new firmware V1.1.1 have more coverage even if he brings very limited functionalities. I can notice 2 positive articles https://www.4kshooters.net/2020/09/09/canon-eos-r5-firmware-1-1-0-overhating-tests-and-results/ and https://www.diyphotography.net/the-eos-r5-overheating-issue-is-solved-and-its-a-super-simple-only-slightly-hacky-workaround/ It still better than nothing!
  9. No, No need to do anything It's very simple. Canon do a very simple calculation. When camera is running, a counter is setup. When the counter reach a certain level, you have a warning logo. If you keep recording, the Log will become a shut down. This raise a flag that I will call "Fake Overheating flag" At each of these step Canon is writing the exact time this occurs. Let's call it the "overheat start time". This is done in an eeprom that is kept even if you remove the battery. The writing occurs when you shut down with the power button. This is the mistake right there.
  10. Thanks for finally put my words in video. Do you mind if In put this one into my post? https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/
  11. Confirmed by dellfonic user on magic lantern. This is the final refinement on my hack. You have the right time for your recordings!
  12. I have another step for anyone to test also. I should work, but need one beta tester to be sure. Follow the previous procedure to push forward the day as I discovered. When you see that the "overheat logo" is gone; turn off the camera using power button. [this is the extra step] At this time, the "overheat flag" is now written into memory. Turn back on the power with the power button. The camera is now booting from a regular boot. So if you have no warning here, the camera is absolute fine with temperature. This not a "special boot" anymore And the beauty of it, you can
  13. I do not have a R5, another user MagicLantern user did it for me if you check my posting. https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/ The battery grip will act as a regular battery, so it's a no go. It hold the same door switch as I have understand. You can either use the screw in the door idea or use the dumb battery option that I prefer.
  14. This is primary tested by one user, he put all his camera details as reference. Please wait to get backed and test with the Firmware 1.1 also. 1) I really don't see why the card format should have any impact there as the camera is not recording during the shut down. This time, this is just the date/stmap that is modified and not read at this specific boot. 2) Yes, at each time your camera is displaying the overheat logo, you need to increment to the next day, hours, month, year. But if your camera, during lunch break is able to cool down by itself anyways, you can put back any date.
  15. Well, one tester is not enough, please try to do the experience if you have a R5. The procedure is explained here. https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/ In short: - Power the camera with a external battery and close the door beside the R5 (you can also do the screw trick if you like) - Record video until you see the overheating logo, or even until the camera shut down. - Turn off the camera by using the power button so your recording parameters (ISO and so one) are saved. - Turn back on the power. - Go to the menu, Change the time of the day to +3 hou
