People were pre-ordering the camera under a false pretence. So I had to put the facts on the blog rather than have that info stay hidden in the CVP video. You seem to be suggesting that I should shut up? It's $3900 + tax. I expect it to do what a $3900 Panasonic S1H does - active cooling, 4K 10bit 422 unlimited record times. 6K or 8K is just a bonus. The RAW file sizes are unmanageable for longer record times so the overheating in that mode is only the secondary problem! Of course, you can produce lovely work with the EOS R5. It's will just be a shame about the moment on that shoot where great stuff is being captured up to the point where NOTHING is being captured because the camera got too warm. What bothers me the most is that nowhere on the Canon R5 or R6 ordering page are these limitations clearly identified. I almost feel like Canon themselves are not sure how pervasive the problem will be or they do not yet have a cohesive message for the buying public. There was a lot of hype around video leading up to this launch; all Canon had to do was put in a fixed 5min time limit or clearly communicate that in certain modes it would be time limited due to thermal issues; everyone expected some sort of limit, but just letting the camera run until it overheats and not clearly communicate that it is a known issue is a page from Sony's playbook.
