Thoughts R Us: Overall this is a big non issue, and very similar to what sort of heating limitations exist with all small hybrid ILCs, possibly with the exception of the Panasonic S1H which has an active cooling solution with a fan.

Content creators will love it and use it to create some amazing stuff, and when we see that, it will prove the point of how much a non issue this is.

For those that really do require recording for longer periods of time with 8K, then there are solutions with far more expensive cinema cameras. Someone on this thread yesterday remarked they are going to by a RED 8K camera costing more than $50,000. That shows you the type of money it will take to record 8K for super long periods of time. But if you need it, and you will have to be very high level to need that, then it will be worth it.

But make no mistake, the R5 is a bargain for what it does.

@Thoughts R Us = Canon's unofficial keyboard warrior who's job is to hopefully convince us that common sense doesn't exist. It's not rocket science. Do not publicy hype a feature of a new product you very well know has severe limitations. Then tell us it's perfectly okay if we restrict way we shoot to accomodate their own shortcomings. It doesn't matter what the so called amazing other features are when the main thing most persons were looking for was 8k. Not 8k with restrictions.

Precisely my point @byhyew.

I'm not a fan of Tony & Chelsea by any means, however they do make some VALID points.

Thismanisaboy: My last visit, near Ol' Faithful Lodge, I sat at that gas station there, watching a herd amble up. I picked up my dog and kept my car between myself and the herd, ready to scamper into the little store there, if I needed to. A group of dimwitted tourists from a far Eastern country (presumedly accounting for their failure to comprehend the plethora of signs which forbade their behavior) ran up to a calf and pet it, laughing, posing, flipping those damn "I'm an idiot tourist having the time of my life" peace signs, oblivious to the mother who was slowly marching up to them...Luckily for the tourists, and unlucky for my need for amusement, a park ranger exploded onto the scene in his golf cart, literally screaming "WHAT THE F*** IS WRONG WITH YOU! GET AWAY! YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!!".

People will continue to do dumb things regardless. The park puts signs there for a reason. This pillot just got what she deserved. Moving along...

Struggling to find interesting content are we? Obviously yes. Would have preferred to watch something more relevant and actually usefull than this old beaten to death topic.

I'd love to see a BTS on Canon's approach to weathersealing on their DSLR bodies and lenses.

IMHO this looks more like a software issue rather than a physical defect with the camera. Additionally given the fact that the camera is still new there's likely a firmware fix that will address this issue. Now on the other hand if the issue cannot be corrected by a firmware upgrade it may be confined to a specific batch of cameras and so easily identified by the serial number likely resulting in a recall of those specific cameras and subsequent repair of the defective part. In this day and age I am still surprised that people are so willing to create a panic over something so simple and yet fail to recognize some of the more pressing issues that face us everyday. Go figure.

kreygscott: Yawn!!! Was this really necessary? Do we really need another camera bag? Maybe it's just me but I think they'd be better off creating products that ACTUALLY SOLVE a problem than recycling crap to feed the masses.

Well Dan,

That's really just your perception man. Moreover who decides what, "real world problems" are? Just remember what you may consider an issue about a piece of kit or software someone else may not have a problem with.

Happy shooting.

Another camera consumers are going to spend years complaining about instead of trying to make better pictures with their current kit and figure out why their current skill level doesn't warrant acquiring this new piece of gear. Just my humble opinion.

Thanks for the post Barney. However I can't see myself spending 10K on this camera unless I'm offered a high paying position at DP Review :).

kreygscott: So...Not that I condone this practice but I think if someone wants to spend their hard earned cash on buying fake likes then that's really his/her business. Who's loss is it anyway? If it doesn't have an impact on our own livelihood then why should we really care what someone else does with their money much less be concerned who wants to go to court.

Yes it's lying and cheating. And that means...what? People have been lying and cheating since the beginning of time and guess what. It certainly won't be the last. The best thing you can do is to take consolation in the fact that you aren't one of those lying and cheating. So what if Facebook/Instagram sues and wins. You won't be seeing one dime of that money. So remind me why we should care again much less give them a platform of some importance.

IMHO the fact that the Loupdeck is not only poorly built but is geared to force users to upgrade their software which these days is more problematic than functional is reason enough to stay away from this cheap plastic like the plague. You'd be better off getting a Wacom Tablet.

Well she's not the first and certainly won't be the last. People continue to do stupid things to take selfies with people they don't know and on top of that really couldn't care less. That being said she's just one of the lucky ones who was fortunate to not lose her life this time.

GreatOceanSoftware: My X-T1/2/3’s have been the most technically competent cameras I’ve owned in my 40+ years of professional and enthusiast photography. And I haven’t found a line of cameras that’s more pleasurable to use and also inspires me to get out and shoot more. The quality is excellent, and the service has been personal and swift. It’s in my price range, and my system component collection is complete. The images are amazing and my office wall is my personal gallery. So I guess you could say that I really don’t relate to the fuss about formats.

But, kudos to Sigma for always thinking outside the box and supporting APS-C and keeping the Foveon alive.

Well said.

Evergreen108: Should these countless millions of cameras be seen as a temporary aberration, now being corrected, or can APS-C still be a good fit for enthusiasts?
First part of your question-YES it was a temporary (20 plus years), not an abberation but a wildly successful marketing cash grab. Second part of your question-NO.
Still trying to help the manufacturers sell their soon to be obsolete wares are you Richard? Gotta sell that stock of those cropped sensor cameras from that made up market segment so the ad dollars keep a flowin.
I can see the camera manufacturers colluding by creating all of those different market categories back in the beginning of digital cameras. We can make full frame sensors for one market, APS-C for another, micro sensors for another segment etc.etc. Man we'll make a killing. And they did. Well the party is over and cell phone cameras crashed it.
That was a pretty good sales pitch though though Richard, I'll give you that.

You've made some very interesting points Richard. As an APS-C user who specializes in Landscapes only and shoots at only ISO 100 I sincerely do appreciate the time you've taken to write this informative article. Thanks mate and God Bess.
