  1. Hey Steve, Out of curiosity what are you shooting on currently ? And like I said, if you want to see some more examples of normal 4k, I will be happy to do it for you and upload it somewhere so you can download it and test it. Just tell me what you want to see exactly i.e. moving objects, static buildings and etc.. This is not to convince you to get the R5, but it would be to help you decide whether it work for you or not. Regarding the downsampled 4k which you say is bad - You do realize that you're seeing the 4k HQ and normal 4k at 200% zoom along side the 8k in his video ? Unle
  2. @Steve, You obviously didn't see the video. I have shots where background is not blurred at f5.6 so you can look at detail in the trees and the surroundings.. If you really are interested I wouldn't mind shooting some city scapes and etc and upload it somewhere for you to download and test it. Even then, I think you have already made up your mind before even using it and testing it out for yourself. So I would be wasting my time. So do you have the S1H ? If not, why haven't you got it already ? That tells me you're only after specs rather than actual usability - S1H was made for vid
  3. What crop in 4k HQ ? And the normal 4k looks rubbish ? See the video I made comparing both and please be honest with yourself. For reference, check Wolfcrow on youtube, he is a real filmmaker for over 20 years where he did the multiple tests for moire and quality of the normal 4k vs 4k HQ and even he confirms the difference is second to none once you sharpen the normal 4k. Which other full frame camera besides the a7siii is giving you all those 3 things again ? Not to mention if you want highest quality on the a7siii you have to shoot in h265 as well. I agree, the micro hdmi is horrible and w
  4. I think you misunderstood what I was saying.. By usable I meant which high MP camera besides the R5 has "usable video features of the R5" let alone the non usable features like 8k/4k 120p. Why get an apsc camera when the R5 can be used as an apsc camera as well ? I personally love the full frame look and the low light capability of the bigger sensor. Even with APSC, Sony is the only other camera with good autofocus. I had fuji xt-3 in the past and the AF In video was nothing comparable to the a7iii or the EOS R. Even the xt-4 overheats in 15 mins using 4k 60. Second thing is lenses. Canon
  5. Have you actually used the R5 bro ? I am shooting video in normal 4k 24p through out the day with appx 50-100 photos (2-4 hours in total but not non-stop) and I still am able to shoot 4k 60 in small bursts when I need it. Your case might be different. But until now, what were you shooting 4k 50p Full frame on that now all of a sudden you find it absolutely necessary ? Like I said, you are paying $400 more for all the video features (some useful, some not) compared to what someone would pay for an A7r1v when it first came out. Or you can wait till the price drops and firmware fixes. "OH
  6. That's correct. Also, thanks for all the tests you have been doing!
  7. Here is another way to look at it: How much was the A7R1V when it came out ? - $3499 (has basic 8 bit 420 4k 24p, 1080 24/60/120 fps) How much was the 5d MK1V when it came out ? - $3499 (Cropped 4k 24p, 1080P 24/60 fps) How much is the R5 currently ? $3899 - So for the extra $400, the R5 does almost everything of what the cameras above do, PLUS you are getting - 4k 10 bit 422 internally , Unlimited 4k 24p 5.1 oversampled in super 35 mode, Unlimited normal 4k 24p which looks amazing once sharpened, Unlimited 4k 24p HQ over the atomos, minimum, restricted and somewhat useless -
  8. I did something similar. I recorded 4k 24p HQ externally via the Atomos with no cards in for 35 mins or so. Then shut the camera and inserted the CfExpress card and tried to record in 4k120fps and see how much time I get. I only got 5 mins left in 4k 120!! So this tells me, using the ninja V is only good for recording 4k HQ 24 fps and after that the camera becomes useless for any high frame rate recording in 4k, let alone 8k. Got hit hard with the cripple hammer lol.
  9. I was asking if it can do 5.1k downsampled 4k without a crop with a possible firmware update.
  10. I wonder if 4k HQ in the R5 be 5k oversampled like the R6 instead of 8k downsampled. Not sure if that is technically possible.. But if possible, maybe that might help with the heat ?
  11. Hey Andrew, I recently stumbled upon his videos too, and didn't find them too bad. Wondering is there a reason why people dislike him or does he give out fake news of some sort ? Just curious. Thanks!
  12. I realize this camera could be a winner for photographers and garbage for some video shooters. For me however, it's in the middle. The R5 is definitely a Better EOS R with Superb Autofocus, dual cards slot, 45 MP, up to 1080P 120 (future firmware update hopefully) and un-cropped but low quality 4k (NON HQ). But for $3899 ? Makes no sense. May be for $2899 this would still be ok-ish.. It does not make sense to pay $4k for a camera that was advertised as a filmmakers tool for pro use which can't even shoot 1 min of 4k HQ after some moderate use. If A7iii, Z6 and other full frame cameras can
