I decided to take another look at the Canon 1D X Mark III – giving it a second chance in the post EOS R5 and R6 world.
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.
The FX6 slogan should be Miss Every Shot (while fiddling with the menus).
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
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.
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.
Canon really threw the kitchen sink at the EOS R5 specs sheet. What about the kitchen fridge?
