On page 310 of the R5 manual, it says 8k movies sent to the HDMI port will be 4k. I think that means the HDMI port will not support 8K and thus also not 4k/120.Hey, can anyone use Atomos Shogun 7 to test Canon R5 4K at 120 FPS ? Maybe 4h+ OR unlimited recording like the HQ mode? That would be awesome!
Current 2.0 to 2.0b does support 4k120 in 8bit 4:2:0 and the same for 8k. 2.1 supports 10bit.On page 310 of the R5 manual, it says 8k movies sent to the HDMI port will be 4k. I think that means the HDMI port will not support 8K and thus also not 4k/120.
I had the sam thought since the cards are so expensive most of the people that tested the camera had just one.
that would be a sweet workaround if it worked
So I just have to carry my cards in portable fridge, joke to the side. I see another test thjat can be done. Film without cfexpress card in skipped line 4k and then when needed put the cfxpress for higher frame-rates, after doing them take it out and continue to film in ordinary 4k.My guess is that it might help but you still need the internals of the camera to be completely cool for the new card for maximum recording time.
I agree with this.While I agree it increases flexibility, I don't agree that it doesn't add much more bulk. You are adding 1.3lbs to the top of the camera if you run a 750 2hr battery or 1.65lbs if you run a 3hr 970 battery. If you add a cage, arm and mount the monitor to the side, that's another 1 lb. In actuality, I always run my Ninja V and camera in a cage just so I can lock my HDMI cables and lock the SSD in so it doesn't pop out. All of those things can dump your shot if it happens while on the move. I've had HDMI cables catch on sliders before, etc.
Don't forget you also need to bring extra batteries just for the monitor and If you are shooting talking heads and need the runtime, you can't just take off the monitor anymore because you will run back into overheating. Lastly, if you then need to take the camera off sticks and move it to a gimbal, you can't just leave the monitor on top or on the side. You have to take off the monitor, rig it on the gimbal below and re-route your cables or you will have no way to balance it. The last issue can be handled with a separate body, but you also need a second monitor as well unless you can keep the thermal limitations in check or move the monitor back and forth.
I think certain styles of shooting can work with external recording, but it is a narrow window without accepting other compromises.
I did a quick search:
The prograde CFexpress at b&h says operating temp:
14 to 158°F/ -10 to 70°C
And for the sandisk extreme uhs-ii it says the operating temp:
-13 to 185°F/ -25 to 85°C
Maybe this is why the R6 can record for longer internally?
The thing that kind of shocked me from this video, first that 'clarity' adjustment in camera for video makes a massive difference and I wish more reviewers had pointed this out before declaring the 'normal' video modes DOA, gotta love those f-----ing influencers. But also I don't know about you guys but I guessed the 8k as the best quality on the blind tests. It would be interesting to run some tests in the video modes you personally are interested in with the clarity adjustment set to optimal against the better video modes. There really doesn't seem to be much in it and the adjustability of the files seems very solid.Here is a second video from Vistek where they did the same thing (he didn’t run a torture test but ran it for 2 hours without breaking a sweat)

This is huge news and hopefully we will see more workarounds like this!!
