  1. 24 there is not too many choices at the moment on Canon basically only EF 24 1.4 II Maybe buy the RF 35 1.8 is quite small and not too expensive if you don’t like it resell it for a 100$ loss. Is a bit noisy the af motor but image quality is good. For almost half the price of the 24 1.4 you can buy the RF 35 1.8 plus the RF 16 2.8. They are small and lightweight great for travel. I’m testing the 16 2.8 right now seems quite good for the price but I need more tests. An alternative is to buy a used RF 24-105 4-7.1 you find them around 220 usd is small light weigh and okeish. You then see the most used fl and sell it and buy something better. This of curse is a no go for indoor moving subjects.
  2. First Canon does not have any 24 1.8 is either 1.4 or 2.8 (useless lens today)..... Are you buying the RF or EF version of the 24-105 both EF versions are meh imo? I owned the Mk I and tested the Mk II. Second, maybe I got it wrong but you want to shoot sport right? 24-105 F4 for sports is not great (for me is bad but other my differ). 24-70 2.8 is better especially later shots at 24 where the subject travel very fast you need very high ss... For sports you want BG isolation, reach and high shutter speed. Most common sports lens are 70-200 2.8, 200-400 F4 and 400 2.8 not by chance. Not sure that the hobbyist noise remark that somebody did was for me as I said 1 stop can make a big difference...
  3. I had the EF 24-105 for a long time and I did not like it at all, the EF II is a bit better and the RF version is good but the 2.8 both EF II and RF are sharper. At the end the main point for me is that I do action/sport a lot and 2.8 vs 4 is iso 4000 vs iso 8000. Just shooting 2h ago a CSI Horse Showjumping event indoor and that was the condition. You don’t loose quality with adapter nor AF speed. RF lenses are new design so in some cases are a bit better is some other much better but cost/performance used EF are a good deal, I would not buy new EF at this point. Should check which on supports mechanical 12 fps some old one do not support and camera go lower fps. 3party is a hit and miss they tend to loose value quicker, so you may save at buy but loose at sell. Some have AF quirks. I’m sure there are good ones…
  4. R5 user here. For video: EF ND adapter + EF 24-70 2.8 II, EF 24 1.4 II, EF 50 1.2 (Gimbal, handled) EF ND adapter + EF 200-400 F4 (tripod plus electric zoom motor) RF 70-200 2.8 (tripod plus electric zoom motor, handheld) + ND For sports EF 200-400 4 RF 70-200 2.8 Remote: EF 16-35 2.8 or EF 24-70 2.8 For travel/photo/family some combination of the following: RF 16 2.8 RF 35 1.8 RF 24-105 7.1 RF 70-200 2.8 I just got the RF 16 I will do some test against the EF 16-35 II if it is ok (not expecting that is on pair but I don't need to be) I will sell the 16-35 as I have many options from >= 24. The RF 70-200 2.8 is best lens I ever had only missing thing is the ND and the ridiculous hood that stays at home most of the time as it is so big. Lens is small, light for a 2.8 and super sharp. With IBIS and IS I can do a lot handheld videos too. If I would start from zero with your use cases I would take normal adapter + ND adapter + used EF 24-70 2.8 II + used EF 70-200 2.8 II (not the III they are the same and you save money). As an alternative but more expensive. RF 24-70 2.8 and RF 70-200 2.8 plus NDs
  5. Hard to judge from YouTube video but from Gordon's video my feeling in term of sharpness: R3 4k 25 = R5 4k 25 HQ R5 8K 25 > R3 4k 25 R3 4k 25 > R5 4k 25 R3 4k 100 > R5 4k 100 Unfortunately no test for 4k 60 and no 6k RAW vs 8k RAW although I bet the R3 4k 60 > R5 and R5 8k RAW > R3. Rolling shutter seems like the R5 and A1 for video. Ready to bet for around 14ms for <= 60p Apparently there is no CLog only CLog3. 100 and 120 fps only conformed so no audio (why why why this is my biggest complain on the R5) Finally they got rid of this silly 30min limit..... I think I prefer to have 2 R5 than 1 R3..... maybe best would be to have 1 R5 and 1 R3 but $$$$
  6. Official press release: https://www.canonrumors.com/here-is-the-official-canon-usa-press-release-for-the-canon-eos-r3/
  7. 6k 60P RAW 4k oversampled from 6k 4k 120P No time limit (so no 30min limit), can record up to 6h continuously CLog and CLog3 As always devil will be in the details..... https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zdfdmPXy1XDpoSdllbugt0ATg36gSJop/view
  8. Me too as is the mode that overheats faster
  9. If this data is true, it seems helping quite a bit especially if you can power it >= 8v. I never hit a stop so fare but I got close a couple of times so it maybe a good backup solution for some situation that you know it may become tricky.
  10. I would be interested in the findings for 8k RAW and 4k 120 under the sun at 90F. Thx!
  11. Next one for the R5 is around the corner: https://www.canon.com.au/about-canon/news-and-press-releases/canon-releases-new-firmware-for-its-professional-cameras
  12. I have a R5 since October 2020. I had a 1Dx III from march 2020 until two weeks ago, sold it to buy an additional R5. Never used an R6 so I cannot comment on that. I basically have 2 custom settings that I use for video: 8k RAW Light 24-30 fps and 4k 120 fps Clog (rarely use Clog3). Rarely I use 4k HQ IPB with no log if I need to give the video for some quick and dirty usage without any further processing. R5 is imo a much better camera than the 1Dx III: 8k RAW is better that 5.5k RAW not for the resolution (although it give some more room for post zoom and pan) but mostly for the much better rolling shutter 15 ms vs 29 ms 4k 120fps is way way better than the junk 1080 120 of the 1Dx III. Crop quality is a tad better Lightweight, better on Gimbals Smaller to pack, basically I can take 2 R5 in the space and weight of a 1Dx III, if you add the insane big charger of the 1Dx III you can take a gazillion number of R5 batteries….. Flippy screen much better on Gimbals and in low angles 45 mpix much better than 20 mpix for photo Has zebra IBIS, IBIS + IS lens allow me to film quite a bit without a tripod, very handy for filming while backpacking for ski, mtb, etc….. EF-RF Adapter with VND 1Dx III is better in: No overheating Initial AF acquisition with long lenses but only for photos in non liveview mode. Has 5.5 RAW at 60fps but no AF Longer battery life Same dual card type More rugged and better weather sealing The biggest gain for me with the last firmware is the RAW Light that basically give me almost 2x storage. I’m a fan of RAW as it give me more flexibility in post than Clog and Clog3…. is probably me not doing it right but for me is a night and day difference RAW vs. Clog how much more post processing I can do and fix mistakes. Bonus that on my PC the RAW Light file are much easier to edit than 10bit Clog ones. At the end the only question is if you need long takes and in case that things go south can you live with 4k SQ if the camera would overheat? In my case it has never overheated in 8K RAW Light in my usage (but it will eventually happen). I got at the limit a couple of times at 30-35° C under the sun shooting at 4k 120 fps, this is the mode that seems to overheats the most.
  13. I'm curios to see if it can do FF DCI > 6k RAW Light 60fps with AF, I expect this but with Canon you never know. Best would be open gate... but I doubt. My biggest complain to Canon is 120fps is conformed to 30 fps with no audio... why not offering both conformed and 120fps (with audio)?
  14. Internally both A1 and R5 will eventually overheat with the A1 having longer recording times than the R5. Externally I have no idea about the A1 and never used my R5 with an external recording but as it is currently not yet possible to record externally 8k RAW from the R5 I would still be cautious in assuming that it will not overheat. As ProRes Raw being a standard codec is debatable as basically no camera supports it natively and Resolve does not support it at all. Files being smaller it could be but are any effective datarate for 8k of the ninja being published yet? It is fair to assume that with the Ninja V+ you will get more recording times but I would wait until is available and tests are done, there will be some quirks as always.
  15. Sony A1 in 8K video has exactly the same rolling shutter as the R5 15.5ms..... don't trust marketing bla bla. Why you want to use ProRes Raw instead of Canon Raw Light? Did you test both 8k RAW in your machine?
  16. With the R5 only in 8K RAW you can have 4K 10bit or 8bit copy on the SD card, other modes are single card only.
  17. R5 rolling shutter is good, 8K 25 fps is 15ms about the same as the C500 II so a non issue imo, non HQ mode is 9 ms, R6 and 1Dx III are quite bad. Sony IBIS for video is worst than Canon. With the price of a Ninja V+ + SSD you can buy 2 x 2 TB CFexpress so not sure you are saving money But what are you shooting and for how long? And in case of overheating is 4K SQ not good enough? It is so crazy people rave about 4k 120 R5 quality (which is indeed good second only to the A7S III) and say 4k SQ is bad but it is exactly the same.
  18. 1DX III has already RAW Lite it was released in fw 1.4 at the same time as the R5 RAW Lite firmware. I have and use it on my 1DX III. No CLog3 yet.
  19. Pure guess is that they have an agreement probably the RF mount in Komodo is part of that agreement too maybe the sensor as is speculated to be Canon one in Komodo (not sure just reporting rumors).
  20. 8k RAW (Light) (29.97p/25.00p): Approx. 1700 Mbps 8k RAW (Light) (24.00p/23.98p): Approx. 1350 Mbps For 8K a very good compression.
  21. It is such a false info…. media is a contributor to the heat and having the door open will have some minimal cooling effect but is not the main issue and solution seems really fragile.
  22. Looks like something ready to break, big chance to lose data....not even sure how stable is when the battery runs low and so on. Imo is the wrong saving (if any) but if it works for you.
  23. I have this Delkin Devices 2TB CFexpress POWER Memory Card DCFX1-2TB B&H (bhphotovideo.com) I may be wrong but I believe the door open has more to do with not overheating that the external storage. The thermal control is there to prevent damage is like a rev limiter in a car it will not have any consequences. In my 8 months R5 only shooting 8k raw and 4k 120 (the only two modes that I use) it never overheated once. I do many short takes up to 5min....
  24. Not sure it is really worth, risking stuff entering the camera, breaking the door, breaking the cable etc.. A delikin 2 TB CFexpress that sometime is on sale for 800$ is a better investment.
