  1. No not at all... If I update firmware and lose a workaround it wont be anyones fault but my own. I've tip-toed into these updates since the beginning fearing that Canon was only updating to seal up some loose ends.
  2. You're all welcome. Cant say I wasn't comfortably reluctant.
  3. Just confirmed that the Date change "hack" is still live with New firmware on R5.
  4. Add me to whatever list exist for the R5 visionrogue workaround works. I'm on firmware 1.1.0 with, and without the battery grip. Camera overheat warning flashes, make date change, pull battery, and then all times reset for all modes.
  5. Those R6 lens kits just released seem to be sitting in-stock in the bug guys warehouse, B&H and Adorama are showing in-stock status.
  6. The picture is said to be the actual camera and shows internal ND control buttons. They definitely wont allow it to hinder the possible c200 update, c300 mkiii or c500 mkii.
  7. After testing v1.0 along with the new firmware, still says what we all know... Timer limited.
  8. Hahaha. I was lost too. I sent you a PM about it. Something was going on with the Sanddisk card I was using. The R5 gave some read errors a couple times, I reformatted, and it would work on and off but it was a really old card. I switched back to my Prograde cards and everything was fine. I don't know honestly will test more to solidify all this.
  9. It works... Not sure what was going on. I needed to confirm a few more times. Anyone that updated can follow this up to echo but seems like its ok.
  10. Not sure what witchery is going on now but if you want to keep your battery pull abilities Hold off on updating. It seemed to work when I tried a few times earlier, but after using the R5 throughout the day trying different modes... dont update, and if you did... MY BAD.
  11. Battery pull thermal timer workaround still works.
  12. I updated the firmware this morning then repeated old external test. Recorded 4K HQ externally for over an hour with no card in camera. After 1hr 16 minutes passed I stopped the external recording, and inserted CFexpress card. Once the R5 booted back up the counter said 20 minutes. Showed 25 minutes after shut down for less than 5 minutes. So it seems the external recording is still good.
