When I first tried my new Canon R5 with SanDisk 128Gb CFexpress card, it shows I could take up to about 2400 RAW photos.  After upgrading to 1.3.0 firmware and making customized settings on the camera, now it shows I can take up to 1916 RAW photos only. Another family member has the same R5 and SanDisk 128Gb CFexpress; and his shows 2045 RAW photos capacity. We swap the memory cards; and my R5 still shows 1916 RAW photos and his still shows 2045 RAW photos capacity. I called Canon Tech...

I have an Canon R5 and EF 500/F4 II and am about to venture from daytime into night time owl photography.  For starters, at least, I'm not trying to capture birds in flight - merely to get some nice perched shots of some known screech and barred owls.  I'm wondering the best flash or continuous light source that I should purchase (within reason, of course), as well as how to best hook this up to a tripod/gimbal mount/lens so that my hands are free and not encumbered with holding the...

Relatively new to the R5, I had Canons many years ago but have been on other systems (mainly Nikon) until recently. I shoot primarily in aperture priority mode. By setting the rear dial to ISO, the quick control dial 2 can be used to set exposure compensation. This is what I'm used to on other cameras, front dial for aperture and rear for exposure compensation. What is bothering me is the exposure compensation can only be adjusted while metering is active. Other camera systems I have used...

Looking at the RF lineup, I don't understand why Canon is making some of their wide angle lenses with IS considering the IBIS on the R5/R6 are so good already. For example the 15-35mm 2.8 IS and the 35mm 1.8 IS. Is there any aded value of the lens IS with IBIS, of if IBIS alone can already provide 8 stops of compensation? --Icebear

I have recently bought the Canon R5 along with a new Angelbird CF express card.  I used the camera and stupidly only had the CF express card loaded.  Unfortunately I was not aware that I needed to update firmware on the card before using it and about 20 images are corrupt and unable to be edited in Lightroom.   This was a paid shoot and I need those images :-(  I am sure I read on here the other day how to 'save as' from Cr3 to tiff.  I did this once and it opened a file and let me edit in...

Do you have any similar experiences? Am I doing something wrong? I am new to the R5. The Kenko Teleplus HD C-AF 2X DGX worked with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM on the EOS 80D, but I am having difficulty getting it to work with on the R5. It seems to work if I turn off the image stabilization switch on the lens. The Kenko has soft image quality, so maybe I should stop trying to use it? The Kenko Teleplus HD C-AF 2X DGX works fine with th EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM on the R5 but...

I’m thinking of upgrading from the 6DII to the R5. I don’t care about video; I do mostly landscape and some travel photography. The things that most appeal to me about the R5 are (1) focus bracketing; this is a feature I would definitely use, (2) the in-body image stabilization, which when combined with the IS in my lenses, should allow me to work off tripod more often than I do, and (3) the higher resolution, which would allow me to crop a fair bit and still get decent large prints. My first...

For those who are using the Godox V1 flash with their EOS R5, any issues? I am thinking about getting one to use it w/ my R5 and want to see if there are any issues.

I use my 85mm Otus handheld for portraits, and usually at f/1.4. I miss about half my shots because focus confirmation sucks with the 5Ds, and there's no focus peaking or reasonably-accessible zooming. Is there any convenient way to accurately confirm focus with the R5? For example, does focus peaking work well enough to capture the eye consistently at f/1.4? ... Or does the R5 have any other feature that would work well?
