Canon’s Takeshi Tokura on EOS R5 controversy – “I don’t think video-focused users are driving the reputation of this new product”

Canon’s imaging division general manager Takeshi Tokura has given an interview to Japanese camera website Toyokeizai in which he touches on the EOS R5’s controversial debut for filmmakers.

Tokura claims 8K went on there in an effort to be first ahead of other companies, and that he doesn’t care whether it attracts video users or not.

CRIPPLE HAMMER HERE, CRIPPLE HAMMER THERE, Canon never cripple anywhere!?

Canon C300 III / EOS R5

Canon’s mythical cripple hammer needs a theme tune… an anthem. With this Berlin industrial dance band AND ONE I think I’ve found one.

TURN THE VOLUME UP!

Take this deadly tool and feel the daily routine
You go to work for money and for me
A cripple hammer here, a cripple hammer there
Cripple hammer lovely tool you’ll take it everywhere
Cripple hammer lovely tool tell me what I am
Treating you is the only thing I can
Thank you for the money, help me to survive
Cripple hammer, cripple hammer help me to stay alive

This is my Canon EOS R5 recording 8K video 50 minutes straight until empty battery – video evidence

I can now record 8K video on my Canon EOS R5 with no recovery period or lockout until the battery dies.

I filmed the proof and it’s a clear indication that any overheating controversy is the result of an artificially restrictive timer in firmware, rather than any real thermal buildup inside the camera at the end of 20 minutes of 8K recording, monitored by a temperature sensor.

We have been sold a lie.

Removing internal battery resets EOS R5 overheat timer – Are Canon’s pants now completely down?

“Math Class” on Baidu now has detailed infrared thermometer readings of the camera’s mainboard with the back off, showing they correspond closely to the temperature reported in the EXIF data and don’t rise above 64C. He also found that if you remove the internal battery it resets the so-called overheating limitations. So who is telling the truth now, Canon?

Silence of the recall! Is Canon turning around shipments of EOS R5?

One of my favourite guys on YouTube is Theoria Apophasis.

Theo here is the antidote to the gurning frowny face / amazed face shill.

I think his source is utterly convincing about the odd U-turn in the middle of the night involving 65 units of the EOS R5.

The real-world 4K HQ overheating limit is 2 minutes on the Canon EOS R5 say DPReview

The Canon EOS R5 must be recalled now as this is so far from acceptable. It appears that only 1-2 hours into a stills shoot you can toss aside the Canon overheating test data in the real-world.

In an update to the test at DPReview, Richard Butler found this out the hard way as he describes below.

The real story is not the continuous recording cut off at 30 minutes from cold in normal room temperatures, but that the limit is closer to 2 (or even zero) minutes during a day’s real-world shooting.
