R5C is twice as expensive, has 50% more rolling shutter, 2 stops less DR, no open gate, no ProRes and no IBIS compared to XH2S. XH2/XH2S pack a lot of bang for your buck imo. Yep, two entirely different beasts I think… Ditto Nikon Z9 which was where I was going and would have gone and been extremely happy and never looked sideways…had any been available. I think Nikon have really shot themselves in the foot with this, or more likely, so many companies have suffered due to global supply chains. I made a decision in principal a few weeks back to switch systems because I could not get the one I have to work as I needed it to. At the time, my best option…and it is still an equally valid and splitting hairs alternative (albeit a slightly different proposition) was a Z9 led approach. But it’s turned out to be an extremely frustrating option with zero traction, both of which caused me to consider other options after what I thought was a decision made. Upon reflection now, although the Z9 is a more capable tool, just as the Canon R5c is in many if not most regards, arguably neither are the right tool for me. R5 over R5c, if only for the IBIS. 2x XH2’s AND an XH2S for 500 more than a single Z9 body. It has to be that ‘no-brainer’ they talk about. For my needs. And that is what it always comes down to, your specific needs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
