I’ll be honest.

Truly the best camera of the year is the Fujifilm X-S10. It has the best SOOC stills. It has the best SOOC video. With today’s editing software, it has more than enough IQ for almost anyone (one photographer who posts here shoots for Vogue with Fujifilm APSC for gosh sakes). It even can do DCI 4K unlike some other “hybrids”.

And it costs under $1000.

If you want the best camera for easy, low hassle, amazing photos and videos and don’t want to over pay. It’s a no brained.

Disclaimer: I am not a Fujifilm owner either. I do respect their cameras.

The G9 is great camera.

(unknown member): Summing up, 1 point 3rd place, 2 points 2nd place 3 points 1st place, -1 point worst mentioning, -3 worst selection, gives:
6 points Sony
2 points Canon
2 points Nikon
0 points Fuji
-1 point Panasonic
-1 point Olympus
That wasn't my perception in 2020. I think that Canon, Nikon and Panasonic performed better.

When they say Hybrid they mean best for consumer video.
It’s not great for stills and it doesn’t support DCI 4K or higher resolutions for editing flexibility. (A great number of edits reduce resolution, even NR and adding a slight zoom). And of course it lacks many basic video tools like waveforms, shutter angle, vector scopes, etc. But it is good for YouTube and Vlogging. And it’s a great 1080p camera too.

If you notice Jordan uses the S5 over the A7siii as do many people who want flexibility and great great video.

DPRTV says the R5 is camera of the year.
DRREVIEW says the R6 is product/camera of the year.

I guess they can agree to disagree.

Clean sweep for Canon.

I don’t think people are that stupid.
You can set your shutter speed to be higher than 1/60th while shooting 8k video. Set it at 1/1000th if you goal stills.

Basically you can shoot 30 FPS with this camera and get 35.4 MP images.
8196x4320 pixels is 35.4 MP.

And you don’t have to worry about pressing the shutter in time or holding it down . You start the video point the camera and follow the action. So much easier.
Studies show it takes about 1/8th to1/4th of a second between the time you see something and can press the shutter. That’s why so many miss shots.

drajitsh: To those who posit that R5 is good enough as it is, please imagine how it will work in hot areas. Jordan and Drake tested it in Canada, what would happen in New Mexico/Arizona, or countries like India where daytime temperatures exceed 45C for more than 2 months.?
Hint it is still not available for sale in India.

I only mentioned what some youtubers found.

But we know Sony has a pretty long history of their cameras overheating and “bricking”. I provided a link to some ideas resourceful came up with to slow down the Sony camera overheating. For them if their camera overheated it would “brick” and they could not take any video or stills at all. At least with the R5 users can still shoot 10 bit non-HQ 4K video and shoot stills.
Here is the link again.

Unknown User 953359: I think some don’t get it.

This is about the best enthusiast camera TODAY. This is a very popular time to buy cameras.
And if you want the best today, not 3 years ago, watch the review.
Also check out the article on product of the year. Out of all the products released, the R6, the one also named best enthusiast camera, was also the winner.
It’s a solid choice for anyone looking for a new camera or to get into FF.

It’s just a dog compared to the new models. Just a couple years ago it was a very good camera. I agree with that.
But now there are 4 companies making FF cameras (and past the first generation).

Bender79ita: I think lens selection and price of said lenses in general should have been considered aswell.

I didn’t realize DSLRs were so much more technically advanced than other cameras. I guess all you have to do is look at battery life. 😝

Meanwhile one brands “flagship” APSC camera only supports USB 2.0, and supports Memory Sticks but not UHS-II cards. It’s battery life means it’s technology is really advanced though.

Congratulations to Canon.

The R6 not only took top honors here but was also this sites product of the year. High praise indeed.

I think the Z6ii and S5 were very close though. I can see some cases such as Video for the S5 where some might find them better.

Anyway, great job Canon. Looking forward to the R5s in the spring.

harveysteeves: since these things are supposed to be weather resistant, wouldn't a quick dip into a pail of water with ice cubes world just as well?

There are some videos showing setting the camera by a fan with the card door open works pretty well.
I’d put the camera in a plastic bag before putting it in water to be safe.

And cold water would work a lot faster than a freezer.

It’s true Sony users have a lot mire experience with their cameras overheating quickly, faster than the R5... and only shooting 8 bit 4K!

Here are some ideas they’ve come up with because Sony’s brick when they over heat and unlike the R5 can’t shoot video or stills at all!!

A couple youtubers showed putting an A7Siii in direct sun light and shooting 4K 60p caused it to overheat even faster. The A6300 was known to overheat in less than 15 minutes (see link below)

The trick is to keep them out of direct sun light.

Here are 13 ways to stop Sony cameras from overheating, including an umbrella.

They can apply to any camera.

Nukunukoo: No C4K modes?

Sony went “retro” with video from 2014.

No C4K (DCI 4K, true 4K).
No real over sampling.
No 5K, 5.9K, or 8K options.
No anamorphic video options.

Sony made several camera that overheated in under 10 minutes shooting 1080p.
They bricked and could not shoot stills while cooling down.

And while the R5 can shoot unlimited 4K without overheating, cameras like the A7riv, XT4, and S1R cannot.

I did enjoy the fake “ 1-2 hours to cool down “ comment. It just proved even you knew you were wrong.

mferencz: This is embarrassing for Canon. Lets all move on and accept it for what it is. Do we need to give time for some Macgyver water cooling a camera?

It’s the only camera that shoots 8K video.
It’s the only one that shoots RAW internally.
It’s the only one that shoots 2:1 oversampled 4K.

It does each of those for over 20 minutes.

What’s embarrassing is a “video” hybrid that shoots only soft consumer UHD 4K without any over sampling, and doesn’t support DCI 4K or any larger formats at all. It’s not 2014 any more.
Almost any camera over $300 these days shoots 4K video all day that’s not oversampled. Some shoot the higher quality DCI 4K. It embarrassing a $3000 “video” hybrid does not.

steelhead3: I wonder if the new type A card makes the B obsolete?

The SD Express cards will quickly kill off CFx Type A. You’ll be able to use most of your older cards along side them.
Type A just doesn’t have the speed or capacity to be competitive. They are destined to be the next Memory Stick.

Well this proves the demand for 8K.
The R5 can shoot unlimited 4K, even 10 bit 4K although with line skipping. But some YouTubers have shown with some sharpening its hard to tell apart from 4K from other cameras.

But thats not enough. That’s commonplace today. Virtually any ILC selling for $300 and up does it.

Everyone wants 8K. If they didn’t there would be no complaints.

Several wedding and professional photographers have pointed out they can charge more for 8k, and they can get more detailed 4K with better color fidelity and smoother gradients when starting with 8k.

So I can see why this is talked about so much. And the Canon R5 is the only game in town for the price.

Photoman: Maybe Canon tested it in a freezer room and saw no issues with heat...

Yes, globally there are channels broadcast in 8K.
Yes there are many 8K TVs.
Yes, the Chinese and Korean panel manufacturers said they are switch their plants that make panels 65 inches and larger to 8k, so cheap TVs will follow.

And 5k monitors have been around a while too.

Take any 4K video, center the image, add a slight crop, add digital IS, apply a little noise reduction, maybe add a pan or zoom and you end up with maybe 2k video since all those things reduce resolution.

Btw, 4:2:2 color on 8k converts to 4:4:4 4K color as well.
There are too many benefits to 8k to name here.
