Canon EOS R5 records 4 hours of 4KHQ 30p to an external recorder, with a couple of simple tweaks

By Canon Rumors | August 6, 2020 | Canon EOS R

Wayne from No Life Digital has posted a video to his YouTube channel showing how he got the Canon EOS R5 to record 4 hours of 4KHQ 30p video to an Atomos Ninja V before the camera overheated.

Simply by removing the memory cards from the camera while recording externally lead to a big boost in recording time. This seems like a pretty surprising outcome for something so simple. Is there some kind of software limitation in the camera?

A dummy battery was also used in this test.

Testing methodology:

The Canon R5 does not seem to overheat, externally, if you don’t have any cards in the camera. In this video I show (with as much proof as I can), how I’m able to record up to 4 hours in 4KHQ 30fps, 10-bit CLOG, with IBIS and DPAF all on, with no issues like the blackout or screen off issue myself and Gerald were having.

The setup here is as follows – HDMI out of Canon R5, into Atomos, out of Atomos, into ATEM, out of ATEM, into OBS on the PC. This is no different than Geralds live streaming setup, and showcasing the times you can expect as if you were recording on the Atomos. This was to record for this long period of time, without the MASSIVE Atomos file, and still show the camera was in fact running for the entire time.

Rumored RF mount Cinema camera specifications [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | August 4, 2020 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

As previously reported, Canon will be announcing a Cinema EOS camera with an RF mount, likely in late August ahead of when IBC is usually held.

Canon RF mount Cinema EOS camera rumored Specifications:

  • Same Super35 sensor as the Canon Cinema EOS C200
  • Internal ND filters (mechanical) up to 6 stops
  • 2x Mini XLR inputs
  • Full-size HDMI
  • 4K 4:2:2 10bit in ALL-I and IPB up to 120p
  • 1x CFexpress Type B Slot
  • 2x SD UHS-II slots
  • External RAW recording options up to 4K 120P
  • 2x LP-E6NH batteries
  • Camera size smaller than the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Price: $4499 USD

Canon will also announce the previously rumored RF mount adapters.

  • PL to RF with Cooke/i
  • EF to RF focal length reducer
  • EF cinema lock to RF.

The first two adapters have a new design (rumored) and will not be compatible with current RF cameras. I’m not sure about the EF cinema lock to RF adapter and its compatibility.

I don’t know the name of the camera at this time, and I’m not 100% sure on the form factor.

Are Two EOS M cameras coming in 2020? [CR1]

Are Two EOS M cameras coming in 2020? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | August 4, 2020 | Canon DSLR Rumors

I have had multiple reports over the last few months that Canon plans to announce two new EOS M cameras in 2020. Recently I was given a bit of information about the two models. Unfortunately, I have been unable to confirm this information with a source I’d consider above [CR1], so please treat this information accordingly.

Canon EOS M7

The new flagship of the EOS M lineup. Yes, it goes against Canon’s normal nomenclature, but the “7” means a lot to the Canon lineup. So take what you want from the number “7”.

This camera will reportedly have the same 32mp sensor as the Canon EOS M6 Mark II, as well as IBIS, Dual Card slots, and “all the bells and whistles”.

The camera is scheduled to be announced in Q4 of 2020, but consider announcement dates a moving target in the current global environment.

I was also told that Canon will announce a “higher-end” EF-M lens for this release.

Canon EOS M50 Mark II

Later in Q4 of 2020, Canon will reportedly announce the EOS M50 Mark II, a follow-up to the hugely popular EOS M50. I wasn’t given any sort of specifications for this camera.

The biggest question? Will it have IBIS?

Along with the EOS M50 Mark II, Canon will reportedly announce a new prime lens for the EF-M mount. I think it’ll be an 85mm equivalent prime.

image.canon is up and running again

image.canon is up and running again

By Canon Rumors | August 4, 2020 | Canon Software

After a rough weekend with image.canon, Canon has relaunched the service with the following statement.

Thank you for using image.canon.

On July 30, 2020, we identified an issue involving the 10GB long-term storage on image.canon. In order to conduct further investigation, we temporarily suspended both the mobile application and web browser service of image.canon. After the investigation, we identified that some of the photo and video image files saved in the 10GB long-term storage prior to June 16, 2020 9:00am (JST) were lost. We confirmed that the still image thumbnails of the affected files were not affected, and there was no leak of image data.
After having resolved the issue that resulted in the loss of the photo and video image files, we resumed the image.canon service as of August 4, 2020.

Currently, the still image thumbnails of these lost image files can be viewed but not downloaded or transferred. If a user tries to download or transfer a still image thumbnail file, an error message may be received. We are currently exploring technical counter measures.

Automatic transfer of still image and video files from EOS R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras, as well as the instant uploads from compatible Canon cameras is also available.

Canon contact details can be found here: image.canon/st/supported-countries.html.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Gordon Laing from Camera Labs has completed his review of the Canon EOS R5. Instead of reviewing the video performance of the camera, his review focuses on stills photography. The Canon EOS R5 looks to be a great one.

From the autofocus to the competitive dynamic range, the Canon EOS R5 will likely find its way into a lot of photographers’ bags.

DPReview: Canon EOS R5 and R6 overheating claims tested: cameras work as promised – but that’s not enough

DPReview: Canon EOS R5 and R6 overheating claims tested: cameras work as promised – but that’s not enough

By Canon Rumors | August 3, 2020 | Canon EOS R

DPReview has completed their own testing of the various video record times for both the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.

As we’ve seen, the cameras do record to Canon’s claims, but with the same huge caveat. You only get these times from a completely cooled camera. So that means the times change when you use LiveView, shoot stills, or shoot any shorter length of video, doing that over and over will eventually lead to overheating. The EOS R5 took about an hour in the DPReview test to get back to normal temperature. The surprising thing DPReview found, is that the EOS R6 will generally record longer, but it takes longer to cool down.

DPReview gives a few suggestions for maximizing your recording time with both the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.

EOS R5 suggestions:

  • Expect to shoot line-skipped 30p for the bulk of your footage
  • Only use 8K or oversampled HQ 4K for occasional B-Roll
  • 4K/120 and 8K will cut into your shooting time quickest of all
  • Be aware of your setup time and cumulative usage (including stills shooting)

EOS R6 suggestions:

  • Don’t expect to be able to shoot for extended periods
  • Be aware of the need for extensive cooling periods between bursts of shooting
