On article Canon EOS R5 sample gallery (DPReview TV) (94 comments in total)

This gallery is much better than the initial R5 gallery posted. At least many of the pictures have intent.

Funny Valentine: Also wanted to add most of the pictures in this sample gallery lack a subject, and the lock of composition drags the quality down, overall it looks like a bunch of pictures a kid would get with his first smartphone.
If you want to showcase the capabilities of a new camera, try to compose, with a clear subject and tell us where the focus point is. Because this gallery is ruining the R5's reputation as mentioned by many in the comments below.

Sometimes I wonder if it may be due to a bias against Canon. I still find it bizarre that the EOS R test scene was done using incorrect WB. The sample gallery looks like the one using the camera didn’t really care.

I typically don’t comment on sample galleries but I think a much better job could have been done regarding this photo gallery. Many suffer from poor composition and a lack of a clear subject. It gives a somewhat negative impression of what the camera is capable of. I’m not saying that all the photos need to be ultra-artistic, but some of these look like what a non-photographer would take with their iPhone, not someone he does this on a regular basis.

makofoto: THIS is What I've Been Waiting For! The True Low Light King. I've used and rented three different A7 type cameras ... THIS one I will buy, even though I'm now using a Fuji system. Haven't touched my Canons in three years ...

Find it interesting that you just had to bash Canon at the end of your post. There is nothing wrong with looking forward to the new camera if low-light video is a priority, but don’t really see why the last comment was necessary.
