    Am I wrong to say that that camera looks fantastic? As much as I dislike Canon right now that body is what dreams are made of. I can only imagine the codecs, AF, colors, and gimbal shots possible with that camera, and I doubt it would be $6K, it will have to cost less than the C200 so I'm thinking it will be around $3K but after lenses you might as well say it will be $6k.

     

    Probably no internal ND filters and maybe no XLR audio, no 4K120FPS,  typical Canon cripple hammer style.

    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.

    I am lost now, my friend : ) Is the new firmware update safe then? I am in the market to commit the sacrilege to probably buy one... I'm sorry I can't resist with an effective mod on the corner ; ) The hybrid shooter inside me begs for it! LOL

    8K / 4K 120fps / IBIS / AF combo is too much... to resist quiet! : D

    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.

    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.

     

    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.

    Battery pull thermal timer workaround still works.

  5. 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.

    Apparently a firmware update is coming tomorrow.

    Who here  with an R5 is gonna be the first to update?

    After all this, I'm feeling like I may need to move slow with R5 firmware updates.  

    No formal response, but just the firmware update that they mentioned before we call came to know what we know now. 🧐

    They might try to low key close some loose ends.

    Very interesting that it resets the timer.  Still rather curious if there's any potential for damaging the sensor though.  Like if you do this for a full day do you start to "see things".  Not really worried about the CPU or even media bay in this case.

    Sucks either way.  Sounds like some sort of firmware update is coming might have some sort of rate increase, but I think I'd like to know more about if they are trying to protect the sensor itself or if it's actually just crippled.

    Plus side, images are nice off of it.  I'm certain with all of this though an actively cooled 8K cinema camera will be coming to the Canon C series lineup outside of the Japan only one they currently have.

    In ProAv's Q & A video, Mehdia Mehtal spoke about unlimited recording externally as long as camera was powered by the mains. She said you wouldn't have to worry about limits, externally but emphasized mains power. She also spoke vaguely about Canon lifting time limits at some point. 

    EXIF data on the camera after recording hour straight in 104 degree Texas heat ( direct sunlight ) didnt go higher than 65 C, and after instantly switching to internal recording the camera acted as if it hadn't even been powered on prior with full times available in all desired modes. Camera was very hot to the touch as well. It also seemed to cool down very quickly as EXIF data showed it was at 30 C within 14 minutes.
