  • Why not waste even more money and buy an R5 mk II when it comes out!πŸ˜€ The 1.6 crop will be more effective with 60mp. Maybe get an RF800 f11 to improve your reach with the R5. I haven't found the ...
  • As long as everything is working normally as before I wouldn't worry too much. The R is a pretty sturdy camera built to take few knocks.
  • I'm not sure if there's that much advantage in using the 1.6 crop. Cropping from a full frame image maybe gives you more of the image to crop if you decide not to crop so close. I've used it for ...

  • Many thanks, I'm saving up for the 1.4 TC
  • I love the reach I get with the 800 f11. It's a bit tricky for BIF's though. I also have the RF100-400 which I don't use as much even though I think it's an amazingly sharp lens. Maybe I'd use it ...
  • I had a speck of dust on the sensor of my brand new R5. Perhaps it got in there the minute I removed the body cap and attached a lens, who knows. Slightly annoying considering the shutter blind is ...

  • The R is a quality piece of kit. I got some great images and video with mine. Enjoy!
  • I went with the R5. My main interest is wildlife/birds and I dabble in the odd landscape. I crop quite a bit with birds and I take all the arguments for upscaling but I'm happy to crop my 45mp ...

  • Same here. Upgraded from EOS R which was pretty ok to start with.
    Mode button familiar from the R. Love the colours compared to the R. Autofocus is great. Haven't particularly noticed the ibis as...

  • Replied in New to the R5
    Agree with this entirely. I've had my R5 just over a week and after updating to firmware 1.6 the first thing I did was look at Jan Wegener's guides. In particular custom mode settings C1, 2 and 3. ...
  • Thanks Karl, great advice, I'll avoid using my blower brush in future on the sensor.
  • I had a small speck of dust on my brand new R5's sensor. I used a blower brush but didn't allow the brush to touch the sensor. I also did a sensor clean from the menu in camera which seems to be ...
  • I've been using the 800f11 for a year and though it's not heavy, it's quite bulky extended for shooting. No experience with the the 600. The reach of the 800 is nice and it's quite sharp. I've ...
  • Replied in R5 playback
    Many thanks, this has sorted itπŸ™‚
  • Created discussion thread R5 playback
    This has probably been mentioned before and I expect there's a simple answer. I have my R5 set to record stills to the SD card and video to the CF express card slot  Is there a way to switch from ...
  • It's a shame Canon launched the R5 with crap 4k video in comparison to the R6 at half the price. Still the 4k 120fps looks great to me and maybe I'll stick to 8k 30p for my short clips.
  • Replied in R5 v R6 Video
    I've just got an R5 and have been trying out the various video modes. I've used the 4k 120fps which is brilliant. Also 4k HQ which is great too. Also 8k in ALL-I. I had read that I may need to ...
