Translation: “we told you what we were going to do and we did it. Now enjoy.”
Or just that there had been a certain amount of press on the issue, so they responded by confirming the first batch had actually gone out, and (yes - marketing speak) that there was no update on the non-confirmation of dates for the next batches. It gives precisely no clues about any 'recall'.This is PR speak for “there are problems with getting the second batch out quickly”. If it was coronavirus related they’d have said so. If they had good news to share, they’d have said so. A recall seems likely to me.
Pay attention ...They literally said nothing here...everyone knows the first batch of the R5 shipped and people have them, I'm just not sure what the point of this statement is.
Wasnt this started by that very friendly, kind eoshd dude? He just threw it out on his twitter earlier in the week and other sites smelled blood. Now we know he was full of it. His sources...yeah rightWell, it's a long weekend, so it's the best time to release a statement that may not be received favorably or with confusion.
There is no recall.How's that ideal? A potential recall would mean you send the camera to Canon and they fix it. It may not mean you can just get the money back. In the end you'll just spend a couple of weeks without the camera.
People think "recall" = "I return the camera and get money back" or "I get a new camera". While it may be the case, it's a very unlikely scenario. If (and only if) the recall happens, they'll take your camera and install something like an upgraded heatsink (or whatever they do internally), and you get your trashed and dented camera back exactly like it was, only with a new heatsink inside.I eagerly await the recall. Meanwhile, I'm gonna trash the R5 I have in my hands now so i can get a brand new one down the line
I am a photographer and video creator by trade. This is my sole income.I wonder how many of the canon "fans" who complain all the time about the technical stuff and specifications have actually made their living by taking photos.
Well, it depends on how demanding your subjects are. Do you shoot sports, lowlight, for billboards, anything that requires premium AF. It's not as black and white as "specs don't matter".Real life is different! Photography is not about specifications.
three pages to decipher a single simple message:
Well, theres a ton of people taking and posting photos with the R5 right now. That part seems to work exceptionally fine, while the video part doesn't as much. So how about you start looking at pictures while the people hoping for better video functionality keep checking whether Canon has a fix planned.we need as many as possible "real life" photos taken with your R5 and usability reviews posted all over internet to take out the negativity surrounding the launch of R5 and R6. We need your help in order to mitigate overreacting markets..
