Camera Conspiracies: Overheating was the least of their worries. The 10 bit files are very hard to edit, and auto exposure doesn't work in Clog. The autofocus is less confident than the EOS R, and the IBIS is so bad most users are asking how to turn it off. The hammer lives on.

not to mention that the All-I vs IPB need more processing as well .

So which camera codec is best to edit that offers 10 bit and 4k. Your local Torontonian go Toneh

Anybody have the link to the Canon RF 85mm F2 sample gallery. I want to see the out of focus background - comparison. Thanks.

Noah M: While just a kit lens, the 20-60mm kit lens makes a lot more sense for video than most other lenses. Often 24mm isn't wide enough and so you end up buying two lenses and spending a lot more for basic video.

Panasonic seems to understand video with ILCs a lot more than anyone else.

the kit lens even at 4k 60Fps in crop the 20mm is still only 30mm

Naveed Akhtar: I just received my S5 couple of days ago, still playing with it but some of my reasons to pre-order it are
1) I already am enjoying my Lumix S1, so this one will be only smaller and better (on few grounds)
2) the kit lens is (not leica but) still great, have you seen the kit lens on A7C?
3) its small but yes build like a tank (I however liked S1 handling more)
4) flippy screen
5) full VLog pre-installed (a welcome tradition, i hope Pany will keep it)
6) smallest fullframe that records 4k unlimited time (8 bit though), no issue with over heating whatsoever there
7) tons of codecs and video tools
8) AFC for videos in APSC modes is great and then you can have them in 60fps 4K too
9) Panny gonna improve the Codecs later in 2020. 5.9K 4k DCI and RAW over atomos!
10) being in Europe, I am going to get excellent sigma 45mm f/2.8 free :)

no free lens in Canada - thinking about the S5 - release date is Oct 30th here

I was about to complain about the terrible noise in the trees and then I realized this is at super high ISO. Not bad sensor and lens. Perhaps the perfect travel camera. Wish the body was a little lighter.

Steve_tEkGuY: Does it do ALL-I in all modes ???

Yes agreed I can't tell the difference from casual videos between All-I and IPB from my R. In fact my computer can't either when it comes to editing. No issues with IPB 4k .

Right and yet you rarely here about this during reviews but when the R6 was announced the world was falling a apart because it did not do ALL-I either.
This is advertised from what I can tell as a serious video competitor yet it doesn't do ALL-I ? Surprised that's all. OK thanks for confirming.

Can it do AUTO ISO in Manual mode with LOG enabled.
Can it do Shutter priority in Video mode and auto aperture and auto ISO
Can it have multiple custom settings for Video. I did enjoy the video side of my old G85 Panasonic. Thanks.

First I was wondering how come my R is already at ver 1.7 - this is old news

Ruff Ruffman: I think the article explains it.

There is no other camera that can shoot 8K RAW internal.
I don't think any other camera can shoot RAW internal at all (we know no future Sony will be able to)

This is the best video possible from any camera like this by a mile.

But people want more than just 20 minutes. They want it all. They want an 8K camera that shoots RAW internally for a lot longer. And who can blame them.

It is already arguably the best all around FF stills camera easily, and it shoot the best possible video, but it would be better if it could shoot the best possible video for longer.

Sure it would. And all the rumors say it soon will. So be patient and you've get the best of everything.

yes agreed. I had too many issues when the Sony A6300 came out. I left the camera under a towel at the beach and when I needed to take photos I would fail due to overheating. I often leave the camera under a towel outside a private pools or beaches and knowing that when I want to take some photos or good quality videos it could fail.
I often ride my bike for hours with my black camera backpack on my back getting super hot and knowing there is a chance the camera could fail to record longer videos or not take a few hundred photos is a concern. I will wait and get more feedback before I decide to go with the R6 or just stick with my R for now which does not overheat even when its baking hot from the sun.

How come no mention of the spot focus point. I always found the smallest focus point on the R too big and I noticed the new R6/R5 have a small focus point.

I see micro jitter through out the video. I did not read all the posts so this may have been posted. For example at 2:09 the jitter is terrible when watching on 65in 4K TV,

I heard a lot of good things about XT3 sensor but I'm just not seeing the images pop. I downloaded the RAWs and after tweaking it I find the images just average. Is it the lens ?

This is great news because i own both the 90d and Rp. 24fps here I come. No more switching to PAL. The best part is the vloggers can now make more videos on testing 24fps on these cameras.

On article Canon EOS 90D Review (967 comments in total)

I knew it. I could see the difference between the RP FHD and the 90D FHD. The 90d has more detail. I recorded the same scenes with both and my 90D looked very nice in 1080P. I also re watched the 1080P and the 4K crop and uncroped and I could not see any major differences on my 65 4k Tv. Its nice to have the option. Now how will un cropped 4K down rezed to 1080P compared to the native 1080P from the 90D. I re visited my old Sony A73 4k videos on the same TV. Yes there is a little more detail in distant objects but not earth shattering. I'm also not sure I need all that detail. For sure on an 85 inch TV the Sony would be best.

On article DPReview TV: Is Jordan out of touch? (147 comments in total)

I did watch the video in full but I was too busy concentrating on the 90D info because I bought on. After it finished I got the feeling it was edited in a hurry. I guess since there was a lot of posts about the 90D I figured your guys rushed and skipped the more cinematic stuff understandably since people were posting lots of questions and you wanted the video out sooner than later. Now that I went back and re watched I did not mind the cuts but the fast shutter and 30fps did bother me since I was looking out for it.
