Looks like per Canon's own spec sheet, there are major overheating issues with cool off times and re-record restrictions in 8K and 4K modes, which would significantly reduce the video usefulness for serious videographers.

When it has to compress a lot of data there can be problems.  Shooting RAW is less of a issue,  but RAW is only for 8k DCI.

So 8k UHD it can overheat.  4k 120p it can overheat.

In the hot sun I bet it becomes a real problem.

I think the rest are OK.  And not many will shoot 4k 120 continuously for long periods I bet.

Plus remember this is pre production.  We don't know if they can improve this.
