I post too Much on Here!!

For same generation sensors the meme of pixel density = noise has been debunked by those who actually compare them for years, just take a few seconds and download some RAW files from DPReview to -rove it to yourself.
You provided your use case. 4K60 shooting surfers. Both PureClassA and I thought a good solution is to use an external recorder. Sorry, if providing a workable solution is not what you wanted.
Not sure if you are just trying to make a point to bash the camera or not, but I don't see how you expect to get an answer to that specific question on a Canon Rumors forum.
As mentioned in my edit, the camera will provide you an estimated run time based on whatever shooting scenario you are in.
R5, 95°F no shade, 4K60 has recording time of 19min 37sec before thermal safety shutdown.
Sony A7sIII 95°F no shade, 4K60 has recording time of 21min 18sec before thermal safety shutdown.
If you need to record over 25mins of 4K60 in 95°F heat you need an actively cooled video camera, Canon, Sony, etc all make models capable of those specs but nobody makes a stills orientated MILC capable of performing what you need. Whatever you get I’d suggest a $5 umbrella to help you and your camera out.
Just because Sony had overheating cameras for a number of generations doesn't mean it's OK. Canon never did and always said that they wouldn't come out with unreliable features but now suddenly they do. Canon "haters"??? I love my Canon cameras, but come on now. Only a fanboy would would think that every single thing about every single Canon camera is to be loved. There is likely no perfect camera for most people. It's ok to love your favorite came and still hate some things about it. Just because I hate the overheating at 4k doesn't mean I hate Canon.Other cameras (including Sony) overheat when shooting 4K. This is no different, except it also does it at 8K. Has nothing to do with being in the Canon camp... it's haters focusing on Canon for a problem common to most all other cameras as well.
Yeah I absolutely get you. Personally I find it very disappointing that they offer any video capability at all actually. All that precious R&D money should go into better DR and battery life.But you've got to factor in the cumulative effect of heat build up over a period of time, not just one take.
I've pre-ordered however, I find the heat issues a very dissapointing with all these limittions.
No, you're just bashing everyone making educating guesses based on details provided by the manufacturer, and saying that none of that is good enough, while being rude to everyone as well as suggesting that isn't good enough.Dude, I'm just asking how long it will record. I'm not comparing it with other cameras.
Why is is that dim trolls like you always equate a simple Real World understanding that nothing is life is perfect, with being a "Canon butt kisser"?
Are you really that comprehension-impaired?
No. not a wild guess, I am well positioned but obviously can't divulge the way I get this data as there are no non pre production model R5's out there and Sony are keeping the A7sIII under very tight wraps for a while yet.So just taking a WILD guess. Highly unreliable. Didn't even try to answer my other question - because nobody knows the answers to that either. Instead rambles on about Sony for some reason and an umbrella. I don't need an actively cooled video camera, I just want to know the answers to my questions.

In which case, wait for real world reviews. Except you're likely not in the market to buy a new camera. No-one with this level of antagonism and entitlement likely is. And that's fine. Not everyone is. But maybe stop prolonging a pointless internet fight to make the point that the camera you don't want isn't good enough - because the bottom line is that you don't know either. Wait for reviews, and be nice in the meantime.
If you don't have one to test, you don't have one to film your surfers.
