As for weather sealing, I for one do about .01% (or less) of my shooting in rain/dust storms and the like so weather sealing has really never been a problem - and there are disposable sleeves which would provide adequate protection for the time I’m might need to shoot in unfavorable conditions.

I’m also primarily a stills shooter so a 30 minute limit isn’t something that’s ever been a problem.

That being said, and correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the R5 simply create a new file at the 30 minute mark and continue recording? If so what problems are encountered in Post trying to join them? Are there glitches, dropped frames, whatever?
If not what’s the big deal for continuous recording if not just for convenience sake?

Well u
Nice. This is exactly what all the videographers were asking for. We are willing to sacrifice some weather resistance for active cooling.

CLOG 2 is great news for dynamic range fans as well.

well us photographers weren’t, I’m happy with my compact weather sealed R5 body. It IS a camera first after all.

I am puzzled why videographers don’t buy a video camera. There is plenty on the market.

No you have to hit the record button again. At 29:59 the Camera will stop recording internally and must be restarted.

Issue for some and not for others.

Such a slap in the face to those of us who bought the R5 IMO.
I think people ought to be blaming themselves, for backhanding themselves. I have no idea how this can be a slap from Canon. The time limitations were publicized before the release of the R5 by Canon. People who just spent all that money without reading what they were buying? More money than sense.

Thats bad news for current R5 owners , that means the next firmware updates are not going to sort the heating issues out , or add much to the video side of the current R5
No way to sort heating issues out. It does what it is advertised to do with the limitations of being without a fan.

“Everyone in the world must think, shoot, and have needs identical to my own, so I’m going to complain that this camera is pointless or that it was insulting not to have from the start “ - this forum.

Personally, I’d love to see an R5c. I’d also like to see a C70 with a viewfinder and the snappy responsiveness of R cameras (AF especially). An R5c with internal NDs sounds almost too good, but maybe BlackMagic has disrupted enough for that to be on the table.

The nd filters are too good to be true—and don’t forget: Blackmagic’s poor AF. But I’d like to see a removable viewfinder.

They didn't mention a ND in the post. I'm guessing we won't see that in a R body until they have a global shutter which has no mechanical shutter which frees up room for a ND. But if they surprise us and include a ND then it would be major benefit for stills users as well as video ones and with that and active cooling it would be a considerable step up from the R5, except for the bigger size, weight, cost (I assume), shorter battery life, and lesser weather sealing(I assume).
