Well, we were all waiting for the other shoe to drop on the Canon EOS R5. 8K RAW video for under $4,000? There had to be a catch, right? Well, it looks like, yeah, there probably is. According to Canon’s documentation for the EOS R5, it’s potentially going to suffer from some pretty drastic overheating issues, even when shooting 4K.
In this video, Max Yuryev goes over the video recording specs in the Canon documentation and calls out Canon and EOS R5 reviewers for not bringing this to more peoples attention during all the announcements and talk yesterday about the new camera. And it looks like it’ll be even worse than the overheating issues Sony used to suffer from.
