  1. I wasn't aware, no. Can you link the other threads you mentioned so we can shift comments about this to that topic?
  2. https://petapixel.com/2020/11/28/this-guy-watercooled-his-canon-r5-and-unlocked-unlimited-8k/ Very interesting. The camera is now actually reading thermal data instead of the internal timer, so cooling it works from the looks of it. This matches with other reports that you can now put a r6 into the fridge to help it cool down or https://m.dpreview.com/articles/3725693825/firmware-v1-1-1-makes-the-canon-r6-much-more-usable
  3. I went to the store today and they had some of the new cameras for trying. Sadly no r5 but I played for a while with the r6 and a7siii Turns out I really like the a7siii. The grip feels very good and high quality and evf and flippy screen are fantastic to use. I used an a7si before and the 3 really feels generations apart the r6 isn’t bad but after comparing the 2 for a while, I made the decision to go with the Sony
  4. Is the r6 able to record clog and 10bit for 1080p or just 4k? If yes, is it able to do so in 120fps as well? is the 1080p oversampled or just line-skipped?
  5. Found this chart here that has a comparison for the different modes (I think it's from Canon?) It looks like there is overheating after all in APS-C mode, just not when using the LQ mode, hmm.. Also seeing overheating in crop modes on the R6 is a bit surprising. It doesn't even list a mode that is free from overheating
  6. I am using 1080p mainly because it's the limitation of my EOS R. The main reason why I want to upgrade is 4k, 10bit, 120fps and IBIS. And frankly I'm just disappointed with canons releases, artificial crippling, omitting of features and lack of innovation, so as a consumer I don't want to give them my money. I could probably make an R5/R6 work and dance around it's overheating issues, but why bother when the a7sIII can do everything I need in a camera for a cheaper price (compared to the R5). That's coming from someone who was 100% sure his next camera would be whatever comes after the E
  7. So I am doing some reading up on R5/R6 again (that time again :p) and saw that v1.1.1 apparently improved some of the issues on the r6. I have a few questions, So for 10bit, the cameras have to be in C-Log, right? Does C-Log have some weird limitations like on the EOS R, that you can't use certain modes such as aperture priority/shutter priority, or does that now work fine? The 4k crop on the r6 in 4k/60p mode, does it only apply to 60p mode? Are the other lower fps modes free from FF sensor crop or is it also slightly cropped? Also did anyone try to primarily use the r6
  8. Hi! I'm currently using the Canon EF 16-35mm F4.0 lens and it's very nice, just a bit too chunky and the autofocus motor is kinda loud. If I have a topmounted mic, it picks up that noise and ruins the audio whenever it adjusts focus. I know the AF motor of these old lenses is just how this works, but now I'm considering switching to something else. Main points are: IS, has to be very wide (16mm-20mm), works well with DPAF and more importantly, has to be completely silent when it focuses. Looking at the EF 20mm f2.8, but it doesn't have IS, and my EOS R doesn't have IBIS. The
  9. I have a preorder for an a7sIII as a upgrade from my EOS R, after the EOS R6/R5 just didn't live up to it for video. I used an A7RIII the other day from a friend and realized how much I dislike how this camera feels which made me reconsider my pre-order. I know Sony recently updated the body ergonomics a bit but now I am curious how other switchers from Canon (specifically EOS R) to Sony feel about the camera, usage, colors etc? Say what you want about the EOS R, It has been my favorite camera ever (used Sony A7S, Olympics EM5II, Canon 70D, 80D). I can't put my finger on it, but th
  10. Does anyone have comments on this?
  11. I started reading a bit about the R6 but don't fully get the 10bit claims. It can shoot internal 10bit when in CLog mode, but what about non CLog? DPreview says: Can someone explain the HDR PQ thing? Also I'm guessing 10bit is usable in 1080p as well and not just 4K? The other thing I am curious about is the IBIS. How does it perform when using non-IS lenses?
  12. Switching from Canon due to the recent EOS R5 debacle and looking at new gear to get. I want one travel/vlogging lens that I can leave on the camera and use outside for video work. I am using the 16-35mm F4 IS from Canon and it's so hefty that I almost don't want to bring it. Sony has the 16-35mm TA F4 as well but the Batis 18mm looks reaaally nice, a bit more compact and lighter. (I'm a 50mm stills shooter so I don't care about the 35mm end). IS is nice but with IBIS like on the a7sIII probably not so important, especially on wide angle. Zooming is nice to have, but I barely go over
  13. Interesting thread! I am on the edge of what to do, whether to go and sell my EOS R and switch to Sony, or to get an R5. My main takeaways from this thread is that overheating really is an issue that becomes annoying, sad. Does the R5 in lowq 4k video mode not overheat? I didn't know that and thought it applied to all 4k modes.
  14. I'm in the market of a new camera to switch from my EOS R due to the R5 overheating debacle, so I'm kind of giving up on Canon. I wanted to get the a7sIII but now I think I might get the a7c instead. I want something compact and small that I can carry around and vlog with, but also use at home in a controlled environment. I care mostly about size, mic-in, flippy screen and autofocus, and the a7c ticks all of those boxes. MFT and APS-C work, but poop out when it gets darker. That, and AF until recently just wasn't there yet on anything that's not Canon. Sony improved their AF sys
  15. Certainly makes EOS R owners think. I absolutely love my EOS R and it’s by far the camera I have the most fun with, but having it superseded so fast leaves me a bad taste in my mouth. Still looking forward to see what Canon comes up with!
