Hey guys,

Since day 1 of owning my Canon r5/r6 cameras, I realized people have had blackout issues with their shooting. Personally, I have not had an issue where I got blackout, but still curious to see if any of you guys still have this occurring issue.

Have a great day :)

It's never worried me. I use fast refresh for BIF and fast stuff and low power for static subjects.

Last friday I shot around 1700 frames with my gripped R5 (fw 1.5.2) & RF 50mm 1.2L...
I had 1 hiccup in the middle of the birthday party: no blackout (that happened rarely in the past), but the camera froze once: it became unresponsive and the EVF was frozen. Turning it off and on fixed that, no need to remove the battery.
