To be honest it doesn't say much!

It doesnt sound like the 8K is gimped though:

Commit your best work to stunning 8K video and relish the prospect of exciting new possibilities for creative capture. At such a high resolution, EOS R5 allows you to fully expand the genre of filmmaking and explore dynamic new ways of telling your story.

It's marketing speak, but they do make it sound like 'proper' 8K. I do very little video but the idea of shooting 8K and cropping to 4K in post sounds very appealing. I think it's more important to have very, very good 4K though.

I never understood this obsession with video on a still camera. If you want proper video implementation, then why noy get a proper video camera? Video on a still or hybrid camera will always be compromised.

You make a good point that having an C300 video camera would be great.

I have proper GoPro video cameras.  However, the price of ILC video cameras and ILC photo cameras prevent me from having one of each.  The price also prevents me from having a Birding ILC camera, and a Landscape ILC camera, and an Action Sports ILC camera.

Understand that limited budgets result in "always be compromised."  Sadness.
